Q: How Much Does It Cost to Build a Website?

Depending on the type of site and how you build it, the cost to build a website can vary. An estimated 81 percent of people research a brand or product online before they buy a product. If you do not have a website, you could be missing out on potential clients. Hiring a professional designer can quickly add up to $10,000 or more, but a basic DIY site is inexpensive and easy to create. A DIY site will also look less professional and lack the right functionality, so you really end up getting what you pay for. For small businesses, a do-it-for-me site might be the best alternative.
