Thinking About a Website Redesign? Here’s What You Need to Know About Costs

website redesign

Web design is a key factor in driving user experience and search engine optimization. The cost of redesigning a website can vary depending on the complexity, size, and builder – ranging from $100 to as much as $75k for larger projects. If you opt to create your own site, costs could fall between $3-5k; however custom builds with an agency may range upwards of fifteen thousand dollars or more.

It's essential that you redesign for mobile users (responsive website design) as most of the traffic these days are from a Tablet or Smartphone.

When it comes to website redesign and redevelopment, the number of pages on a site is usually the basis for pricing. For example, if your project has an e-commerce function or interactive media elements built in then expect to allocate some additional budget; custom CMS may cost anywhere between $2k-$25K too – but don’t forget about free alternatives such as WordPress which can be easily updated by you.

Building your own website from a template is an inexpensive way to get creative with the look and feel of your site. However, it does require savvy web design skills or significant time investment for those less comfortable in this realm. Redesigning can vary depending on what changes are needed – like simple layout shifts or more involved plugin additions such as ‘sharing’ buttons. A redesign by yourself can cost anywhere from $200 on up. It really depends on what you want to redesign. A simple adding of a social media share feature on each page of blog post could only cost around $50 for a simple WordPress plugin. Same goes with a new footer. WordPress plugins can be a cost effective way of fine tuning a website if you don’t have the budget for a full redesign. Carefully consider all options before deciding which route makes most sense!

With customer trends ever-evolving and website technologies advancing, it’s important to keep up with the times by regularly redesigning your site. Experienced freelancers are a great option for more simple makeovers – they’ll typically charge between $2k-$5K USD depending on complexity of needs. If you want to go all out with custom features and ecommerce capabilities, get ready to shell out anywhere from $10k+ through an agency or pay around $20K+. Factoring in Google Analytics data will help ensure that those investment dollars grant maximum lead generation returns!
