How Much Does A Website Cost?

It’s a valid and important question.  If you ask your high school nephew to design your site, the answer just might be “free”.  Ask a marketing agency, and your proposal could start at $30,000, and it can go up from there.  This sliding scale makes it very confusing.

Here is my answer to this question:  Websites are like pizzas.  If you ask a pizza maker, “How much for a pizza?”, the response will be, “Depends on what you want on it.”  Just like pizzas, websites come in all shapes and sizes, and with a wide variety of extras.  

Like pizzas, you can have a simple one-page long scroll site, similar to my page, or you can have a site that is 20+ pages deep that also has an eCommerce store featuring 40 or more products, an online payment gateway, customer profiles, email subscriptions, video blogs, social media integration and Google maps. If you’d like to see an example of that pizza masterpiece, check out my work at OHenry’s Coffee.

A Website Pizza Menu could look something like this:

Plain Cheese:

  • Mobile friendly website
  • 1 long scroll main page
  • 2 additional pages (ie. Contact, Bio, or Events)
  • Lead generation form to build email database
  • Social Media integration

Pepperoni:

  • All ingredients on a Plain Cheese plus:
  • Blog
  • Blog post training for you or your staff

Supreme (eCommerce):

  • All ingredients on a Pepperoni Pizza plus:
  • eCommerce store up to 10 products

Monthly Admin fee: 

  • Website code updates
  • Technical issue resolution
  • 2 hours of content and/or design updates or training

Deluxe (Mobile App):

  • All the ingredients on a Pepperoni pizza, plus:
  • Your website modified and packaged as a mobile app.
  • Submitted to and made available to download on the Apple and Google App stores

Meat Lovers Combo:

  • Deluxe & Supreme combo
  • eCommerce store (# of products will determine budget needed)
  • Mobile App
  • Brand message creation process and content with a Certified StoryBrand guide

Additional toppings

  • Simple content
  • Brand message creation process and content
  • All day StoryBrand discovery process with a Certified StoryBrand guide
  • Optimized content for your website that encourages site visitor engagement and response
  • Custom photos
  • Graphic and/or logo creation
  • Custom video production

The real question: Do you want your nephew to represent your brand, or do you want a professional to help you give you the best chance for a business conversion?

When you need more than a template, but don’t need an agency…

I would be glad to have a no obligation discussion about your website needs.

P.S. Special thanks to my good friend Keith Kirkland who helped me flesh out my pizza analogy and gave me a great summary for what I do for small businesses… “When you need more than a template…” Brilliant!

The 12 Concepts of Service
  1. The ultimate responsibility and authority for Al-Anon world services belongs to the Al-Anon groups.
  2. The Al-Anon Family Groups have delegated complete administrative and operational authority to their Conference and its service arms.
  3. The right of decision makes effective leadership possible.
  4. Participation is the key to harmony.
  5. The rights of appeal and petition protect minorities and insure that they be heard.
  6. The Conference acknowledges the primary administrative responsibility of the Trustees.
  7. The Trustees have legal rights while the rights of the Conference are traditional.
  8. The Board of Trustees delegates full authority for routine management of Al-Anon Headquarters to its executive committees.
  9. Good personal leadership at all service levels is a necessity. In the field of world service the Board of Trustees assumes the primary leadership.
  10. Service responsibility is balanced by carefully defined service authority and double-headed management is avoided.
  11. The World Service Office is composed of selected committees, executives and staff members.
  12. The spiritual foundation for Al-Anon’s world services is contained in the General Warranties of the Conference, Article 12 of the Charter.

The 12 Traditions
  1. Our common welfare should come first; personal progress for the greatest number depends upon unity.
  2. For our group purpose there is but one authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants—they do not govern.
  3. The relatives of alcoholics, when gathered together for mutual aid, may call themselves an Al-Anon Family Group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation.
  4. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.
    Each group should be autonomous, except in matters affecting another group or Al-Anon or AA as a whole.
  5. Each Al-Anon Family Group has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps of AA ourselves, by encouraging and understanding our alcoholic relatives, and by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics.
  6. Our Family Groups ought never endorse, finance or lend our name to any outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary spiritual aim. Although a separate entity, we should always co-operate with Alcoholics Anonymous.
  7. Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
  8. Al-Anon Twelfth Step work should remain forever non-professional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
  9. Our groups, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
  10. The Al-Anon Family Groups have no opinion on outside issues; hence our name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
  11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, and TV. We need guard with special care the anonymity of all AA members.
  12. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles above personalities.

The 12 Steps
  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
