How expensive is web design?

That's a really important question for anyone who wants a website to ask! And the answer is very different depending on who you ask.

Elyria Designs was built on the idea that effective, memorable websites shouldn't cost a fortune. Too many web design companies offer sites that are absolutely unaffordable for many companies, especially companies that are just starting out. And too many web design companies charge a small fortune for maintaining those same sites. Most web design providers don't mention cost on their websites, and with good reason -- one company (which shall remain nameless) mentioned that most business websites with advanced features cost between $10,000 and $25,000.

WHOA THERE.

Websites do NOT have to be that expensive. If you're shelling out $25,000 for a website... well, step one, don't. Let's skip to my pricing to give you some context.

By partnering with Squarespace, I'm able to offer all the functionality of high-end websites at a fraction of the cost. I can focus on putting my experience in effective design to work for you, without getting bogged down in code. What does that mean in terms of dollars? 

I can design and build most business websites for less than $2,500. Take a look at my portfolio, and you'll see some simple websites that cost $500 or less to design and build. More complex sites are on the higher end. I always break out costs in my estimates so you can decide exactly what you want to pay for, and I make it easy for you to pick and choose between the ongoing services I offer. Those ongoing services never cost more than $250 a month, and I offer great discounts when you pay in advance for a full year of support.

Some of you are probably shaking your heads and saying this sounds too good to be true. It's not. This is what innovation in web design looks like. I've been building my own websites for years, and I never realized how much web design companies charge for services most business owners don't really need. After all, the goal of a website is reaching your customers and communicating your message. Working with me will save you thousands of dollars up front, and thousands more the longer we work together, all while delivering superb results.

As a small business owner myself, I know how important it is to find reliable, long-term partners who charge fair rates and deliver excellent products. And that's exactly what Elyria Designs has to offer. I take pride in every website I design, and I'm available every day of the week to make changes to your site and make sure everything is working to your satisfaction. That's not a guarantee you'll get from most web design companies, even if they're charging $25,000 to my $2,500.
