Here's a brief list of questions and answers that might assist you in your quest for a super cool website
It is difficult to quote an average price, due to the enormous range in requirements for a site. According to BusinessWeek Online, a designer might charge $2,000 or more for a basic Web site, not including Web hosting fees. If you check out BuyerZone.com, you'll see that a 4 - 6 page template-based site will cost around $400, while a full custom design will come in closer to $800 - $1500. Other authoritative sources generally quote in the $1,000 - $5,000 range based on requirements and interactive design elements.
Our payment policy is very straight forward and simple - we require half of the total cost of the website upfront and the remaining half after the website has been completed. We do this so that both parties (the client and our firm) each have a high interest in achieving the finished product.
