How much does a website cost | Web design Australia

How much does it cost for a website : Guide to Web Design Australia

As a freelance web designer Australia, the most common question I get asked is “How much does a website cost?”  

Now depending on whom you ask, your answer will usually come back with varied results.   

There are web designers  in Australia that are charging in excess of $2500 – $5000 depending on your requirements and the label /brand credibility attached to the company you’ve requested a quote from. 

I’ve had clients contact me saying they’ve received quotes for more than $6000 with the expectation because the package is more expensive it MUST be better for their business? Then looking at the items they’ve been quoted for  as an experienced web developer, and questioning what they anticipated they were getting for their money? More often than not… it was all about their perceived valued and expectation they’d be looked after…

However, I’ve worked with dozens of clients who have come to me and said they’ve paid out a fortune with 1 or more other companies, they experienced substantial loss, they know their business needs to be online but they honestly don’t know if they can do this again. They just want someone to HELP them.

Helping business owners is a passion of mine and utilising my decade+ of experience and knowledge as web designer. I pride myself on taking care of my clients.  My aim is to offer down to earth support and affordable website solutions for all business owners.

I offer to custom quote all of my clients, or alternatively they can choose from two types of off the shelf website packages.

These packages include Complete Website Packages – where the work is done for you, or partial packages which the technical foundations are laid for you and you’re able to build onto this foundation with confidence in with Do It Yourself Options.

My off the shelf “Complete Websites Packages” start from $699 through to $1700 depending on the package you’re interested in.   Whether that be:

  • 5 page starter website,
  • 5 page website and a blog,
  • 8 page website and an online store
  • 8 package website, a blog and online store.

 

My Do It Yourself Website Packages – retail from $320 to $560 for those who would prefer to Do It Themselves, I setup a foundation to work with so you have full creative control, to create your own content and build your own site using the visual builder tools I implement for you.  Your site foundations are laid and ready allowing you to develop your own site without all the technical knowledge required.

I also offer a variety of other services such as business mentoring and training and support on an hourly rate of $80/hr. 


Once your website is built you’ll have 12 months before you’ll be required to pay a website hosting free / domain renewal again. This gives you sufficient time to put funding away to cover the cost of keeping your website online. 

With flexible payment, affordable pricing and a passion to see you succeed. Client testimonials that rave about our services and so much more.  We’d love to here from you!

Have a great day and if I can be of any assistance, ask a question, prepare a quote or discuss your options.

Taking a look at January 2019 | Website Design Australia

Natalie Crowe Designs Reviews January 2019

$1000 Donation to Richmond Vale Railway Museum – coming February 2019

Each year Natalie Crowe Designs supports a number of worthy local causes with donations of time and funds.  Much like the past 10 years, we’ve shared our skillset and contributed to supporting the Hunter Valley. This year 2019 we’ve jumped right in and put our money where our mouth is.  We ARE here to help!

We’ve contributed $1000 donation to Richmond Vale Railway Museum with the cheque for $1000 being drawn at the end of January and to be presented to the Railway Museum expected in early February.

We’re back in the office full time as of 30th January! | Small Business Website Australia

Back To School Means Back to Work | Taking on new Small Business Websites Australia

BACK TO SCHOOL – MEANS YAY!!!!
We’re back to work full time!

With the end of January coming to a close,  we’ve been tying off the loose ends of what has been an exceptionally busy January developing website  for clients in the Hunter Valley, Australia.  

Although much humor came from conversations through-out social media – with many of our clients and members of the Facebook groups we’re a part of  – calling for January to be dubbed “Free Trial Month” for 2019. 

It seems there are quite a few of our fellow work at home parents; particularly here in Australia with the 6 weeks Christmas Holidays, feeling the pinch of change of routine, others just haven’t quite managed to get started or build moment. 

Natalie Crowe Designs on the other hand – has been quite the opposite!  With NSW School Holidays finishing up tomorrow; 30th of January, and our not so little bundle of joy heading back to school, we step into an another amazing opportunity to help as many clients as possible with their websites and strengthen the support and presence our clients have, and Natalie Crowe Designs is returning to fulltime work in the office.

 

So with that in mind we’re letting everyone know we’re taking new clients in as of 1st of February!
