In South Africa, the cost of developing a website can range from R500 to R50 000, depending on what you want, the purpose of your website, and who you obtain it from. Several factors influence the final cost of a website, and you must consider your exact needs. Some things to think about are:
For your website content and emails, we provide a selection of local and international names. This is normally an annual charge that varies based on the domain you choose and how long you want it for. Is it better to use.co.za or.com?
You’ll need to be hosted on a server, which usually comes with an annual charge to keep your website up. Choose a website hosting package that meets your company’s requirements. Email accounts, unlimited traffic, and SSD storage space are all included. It’s best to select a reputable, well-known hosting business; you don’t want their server or your website to go down. We work with Xneelo, who provides a dependable and consistent web hosting service, focusing on infrastructure stability, good value, and constant service delivery.
Here, you’ll need to consider the purpose of your website as well as the number of pages you’ll require. If you’re selling a service, you could just require three pages, however, if you’re selling a product online, you’ll need more pages and possibly e-commerce for an online shop. We offer a variety of design packages to pick from, and we can create a design specifically for you based on your requirements.
If you already have content and photographs, this won’t cost you much, but if you don’t, you may need to consider hiring a content writer to create compelling content for your visitors. You might engage a professional photographer to take some images for you.
Online Marketing & SEO
You’ll need a proper marketing strategy up and going for at least a few months to get a positive return on your investment to get a lot of traffic to your website. When you’re a new website competing against experienced and older competitors for clients, it’s important to deal with a reputable SEO business, therefore if you want to start conducting any form of SEO, we highly recommend working with one.
Because many clients don’t update their websites much after they go live, not every website will require maintenance. Adding blog posts is easy to do and can be done by yourself. However, we are always available to assist you with any website maintenance you may require.
