How much will a website cost for my business?
No website is “standard”. Each one has its own personal needs and requirements and trying to provide a ballpark figure can be difficult. From previous experience, this is what we believe to be an average cost for websites of this nature.

All websites require hosting and domain and on much larger websites, ongoing SEO work is required. As an SEO company, we are able to provide this as an in-house service.
How do we offer websites for a low price?
We are not going to sit here and knock any other company; we all have our place in the world, and we all do things differently. When looking for a website you will be greeted with generally two companies. One which wants to build you a custom, ground up website on your own personal CMS Web Design Software starting at £1200 and another which will offer a cheaper version using WordPress.
Custom coded websites are amazing to have however, they can be very temperamental and difficult to do anything on and generally require an expert at £100 an hour to edit. The price is justified, but unless you need it, it is over kill.
WordPress websites tend to be the most popular entry level sites. For a long time, they offered coding functionality with a CMS and plugins galore! Most WordPress websites are copy and paste (which Google does not like) and you must host them yourself. This means that if the server goes down, your website does. If your server is hacked, so is your website. WordPress websites have many positives, but they do have their negatives!
For our websites we use Wix. Many people will knock Wix as when it first started it had limited functionality… nowadays though it is a bit of an animal! Wix makes websites easy and producing high quality websites with professional SEO, quick! This means we can spend more time on design and SEO and let Wix handle the code. We would rather know you will search well, and our website works the way it is meant to rather than charging you more to say your website is “custom”. We believe in it so much; our website is made on Wix!
Blades Media are an SEO company, which means we can keep our SEO in house and lower your budget. We offer advanced SEO packages with all our new build websites. This starts at £299 (price varies on website size). We include it with every new website to ensure your website gets off on the right foot. For what we lose now, we hope to grow with you later on.
