So, what are the costs?
Almost every potential client asks this question. We’ll get to the answer in a roundabout way but first some obligatory back-story. Over the past 20+ years we have designed and developed hundreds of websites and applications with budgets ranging from $1000 to $100,000+. We have also worked on Fortune 500 company projects in conjunction with other development companies, these total budgets have been $100,000 – $1,000,000+.
For projects of this scope the team can consist of 10 or more people working full-time for six months or longer. Projects just don’t happen, they are the result of the execution of a methodology or process that arrives at a successful result. Our project design methodology is based on 20+ years of experience, starting with a website for footlocker.com back in 1996. Our methodology has evolved over time, to make the process more streamlined and flexible. Our basic approach is:
6. Production Roll-out
This simple 6-step process is tailored and modified to fit each project by reducing the amount of effort spent on various steps. For example, the “Discovery” process can involve just one simple phone call with the client to learn about their brand and goals or it can involve several all-day meetings. The “Planning” process can involve a short document that addresses the creative and technical requirements or it can involve days of research into the competition and building matrices of features and functionality. So, you can see that each step in this process is flexible and can be modified to fit a target project budget and requirements. So, flexible process = flexible effort = flexible cost. Project costs depend on the project scope and what you are trying to develop. When we estimate a project, we focus on a good understanding of the project requirements and then estimate the number of hours required.
Various tasks like marketing strategy can also be added to the requirements, if desired. Once we have estimated the number of hours for each task we multiply that by our hourly rate which (at the time of this article) is approx. $75-140 an hour. We then provide the final project estimate to the client and if accepted, our in-house team strives to keep the project within the approved budget. During development, if there is an issue of the project exceeding the budget due to unforeseen circumstances or new client requests, the issue is brought to the client’s attention so that the budget can be adjusted or mutual compromises made.
Note about our rates: If you search for design and development services you will find a wide range of fees and costs. Offshore companies may have rates as low as $17 an hour. Students fresh out of school may charge $15 an hour, boutique development companies range from $75 – $150 an hour, larger national firms can easily charge $250 and more per hour. We have heard many horror stories from clients in the past in their search to find a firm. So, keep in mind that there is a world of difference between the experience of a $17 an hour developer and a $150 an hour developer. Our rate is based on what we believe is reasonable for the bulk of our clientele which are small to midsize, large corporations. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation, we'll be glad to be of service.
