What Do Websites Cost In South Africa?

We have developed WordPress websites for businesses from Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, Bloemfontein and just about everywhere in between.

Creating a digital presence for your business and its brand is very critical to developing an overall marketing strategy. When it comes to having a presence online, a website forms the foundation of your efforts to introduce your business to a vast market of potential new customers or clients. It’s why it’s so important to make sure your website is built by people who know what they’re doing and know what you want out of it. You might already know this, but do you know how much should you be expecting to pay to have one built?

Factors To Consider

Several different factors will determine how much a new website will cost you. The first step in the process is determining what your goal and purpose will be for the site. For a smaller business owner who only wants to get their name out there and provide necessary details of what they offer, a simple website with only a few pages could suffice.

However, if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and want to create a detailed website with a comprehensive online store where people can view and order your products, the scope of the project and what your site requires becomes complex. Here you’ll need elements such as a database, larger hosting space, secure payment gateway integration, product inventory management system and accessible, customisable backend.

Your requirements play a significant role in what you’ll be quoted, and since it can be so varied, there isn’t one specific going rate for a website.

You Get What You Pay For

There might not be a single standard price for building a website, but you should be aware that very often you do get what you pay for. A ‘too good to be true’, once-off price usually comes with strings attached, and you could end up with expensive problems down the line if you choose this option. Bear in mind that you’ll probably need to have your website maintained or updated in the future and that you’ll also need to secure a domain and arrange for a hosting service. This will come to much more than a single, set number.

Remember that your website is a reflection of your business and an instant determining factor people will use to decide whether or not your business is professional, trustworthy and worth looking into. Getting this right is essential, which is why you should entrust its creation to professionals who know the ins and outs of making one.
