At TraitDesign we do offer some very intricate websites using ecommerce, social networks and other functionality but we also LOVE building small 5-10 page small business websites. This is where we started and we really enjoy focusing on the look, feel and presentation of the website rather than focusing on the complicated inner workings of a large high tech website.
Static websites are lame and out-dated. Even with small 5-10 page websites, we like to implement a web content management system (CMS). The reason for this is that we like to give our clients the luxury of being able to add and update their own website content as oppose to having to hire a developer and pay just to edit some content. Even though we use this technology, we still charge less than most companies would charge even for just a plain old static HTML website.
The first step in any website we create is to come up with a design and we do this by getting your ideas as well as come up with our own. We have infinite design resources and software to work with to create exactly what you are looking for. We give up to 3 revisions so we can perfect the website layout. Once we get the layout and design down and approved, we start the coding. Sometimes our clients have their own design and they just need us to code it into a website and that is fine as well.
The average price for a 5-10 page CMS based website is $1500-$2000 in the United States. A 5-15 page website at TraitDesign will run you between $500 and $1000. Sometimes even less if we are using pre made templates.
