So you want to know exactly how much it is going to cost you to design and develop your website in Ireland. Let’s take a look at the cost breakdown for different options for your business website or page.
Naturally, doing it yourself is the most affordable way to develop a website. You can expect to spend around €1000 for a 5-page website on a local host like Joomla. This is simply for the platform. The content development, design, and upkeep are your responsibility, making them free or built-in to an employee’s salary. This is a great option for those on a tight budget but with ample time. There are tons of resources online on how to design a great website, but it is certainly something that takes time and patience.
This is the same expectation of €1000 for the 5 pages plus anywhere from €50 to €100 per page for the design and SEO to ensure that people actually see your page. Overall, for a small agency, expect to be spending €2000 for the most basic services.
Content Management System
This is a great option if you don’t have the internal resources to upkeep or manage your website. If the cost of having someone’s time eaten up with website-related task exceeds the cost of having someone external do it, this is for you. It is pricier with €2000 being the approximate design and consultation cost and the actual system costing another €2000.
This is a great option if you are willing to do the work yourself but need a little help getting on your feet and moving in the right direction. You can find a graphic designer who can help you develop templates for as low as €50 per page. The cost depends on who it is and how much help you need.
