How much does a new website cost?

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 2,000-2,500$ or more for a basic Web site, not including Web hosting fees. Prices from professional agencies vary between 5,000$ & 15,000$.

There are many aspects that factor into the cost from concept through implementation. These costs can vary widely depending on what your project needs are and how long we estimate that it will take to complete the project. Please contact us to get a cost estimate for your website work.

How long will it take to design and build my new website?

This is hard to say, as it varies greatly by client. Similar to costing, the timeframe for implementation varies on complexity and the number of web pages and blog posts. In most cases, we are waiting on the client and the client is not waiting on us.

How many revisions can I make to the design?

We try to make the most informed decisions when it comes to creating a website design, which is why we really get to know you, your market, and your audience before we start the design process. We always ask our clients to send us 4-5 websites that they love and that we can use as “direction” in which we will go towards.

After we finish building your website’s structure and layout based on your explanation & other websites used as reference, we ask that there be up to 2 rounds of major revisions to the design at no charge. Naturally, you will have smaller changes and additions, but at that point, we consider the overall structure and design of the website to be set.

If you request too many changes to your design, or if you request changes to the design after the entire site has been formatted with the template, it may incur more charges.

Do you provide website hosting?

No, we don’t. If you don’t already have a host, we’ve worked with a number of hosting providers and can give you some recommendations if don’t have a hosting provider already.

Can I see how many visitors I have to my website?

Yes, you can. Included in this price, we will set up a free Analytics tool for you, which will automatically record information about your website’s visitors.

Can I update my own website, or will you do it?

We encourage our clients to maintain their own websites once they’re launched. Most of our websites are built using WordPress, so that you can update it yourself. We’ll make sure to show you know how to use your dashboard & will make video tutorials showing you how to add and edit content before we turn over the website to you.

Since some clients do not want to maintain their own websites, we offers ongoing maintenance. Generally, we expect there to be minor updates within the first 30 days after launch, so those are free. Updates after that are around $100/hour, although we won’t nickel and dime you on updates – if you need something simple like an address or phone number changed, we don’t charge you.

Do you accept every client?

Unfortunately not. If the client is not a good fit, the opportunity is not quoted. Creating a new website is a big endeavor, so the website designer and their client need to have synergies for the project to launch successfully. The same is true for customizations of existing themes. If we don’t feel that we’re a good fit or that your website isn’t a good fit, we’ll quickly tell you so.

Who is an ideal client for us at AGS?

Small to mid-market B2B or B2B companies that have limited internal marketing resources and/or who need their website to be designed around organic SEO. WSM’s differentiates itself from other website design companies by providing website design that is completely integrated with traditional and online marketing best practices. With our all inclusive packages, no design work begins until a full marketing analysis is completed. We relax these rules for our design only projects, but we still want to know everything about you so we can build the perfect website.

Can I see my website while it’s in progress?

Absolutely! We build your website on our development server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. During this phase, we encourage your feedback if something isn’t quite the way you envisioned it or if you’ve changed your mind. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, we release it live on your server and submit your URL to the major search engines.

What is involved in setting up an eCommerce website?

First, of course, you’ll need a site design and the usual functional elements of a website, such as a contact form. For standard eCommerce functionality, you will need several additional components: an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate, a merchant account, a payment gateway, a back-end database for processing orders and storing customer information, and a shopping cart solution. AGS can help you with all of these items.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, we do. We ask our clients for a 50% deposit on all projects, to be paid before work begins on the website. For this Black Friday Sale, we exceptionally require the payment in full upfront to start the project

What payment options do you offer?

We accept multiple type of payments such as Interac e-transfers, Paypal & Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover are accepted).

How long will it take for you to finish my web design project?

Like anything creative, designing a great website takes time. A custom microsite can take as little as four weeks and a large, complex B2B website can take three months. Similar to costing, the timeframe for implementation varies on complexity and the number of web pages and blog posts. In most cases, we are waiting on the client and the client is not waiting on us. In general though, how soon your website work can be done depends on a number of things, such as:

  • The size of your website
  • The complexity of your design
  • Any advanced features you need
  • When your content is ready
  • Our current client design schedule
  • Your timely feedback and input on our work

Where are you located?

We are located in downtown Montreal, Qc. Unlike other businesses, whether or not your web designer is in the area makes little difference. All the information we need to design your website can easily be communicated through email, over the phone, etc. Even with our local Montreal-area clients, we only meet face-to-face on an occasional basis; most of the correspondence takes place by phone and email.

The most important point is that we maintain a close working relationship with all of our clients, whether you are in the local Montreal area or not. This way, our clients can be assured that their website will still be of the highest quality.

We’ve worked with clients who are local in Montreal, out of state, and out of the country (we have clients in Africa, Europe & USA), and have never had any problems completing a project. No matter where they’re located, we maintain a close working relationship.

I’m not sure if anyone can build the quality of website I need. How do I know if you’re a fit?

Take a moment and review our portfolio. We have a specific design style, so you need to make sure what we consider to be beautiful fits within your thinking as well.

How is the cost of a new website determined?

Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization, copywriting, and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs and not what we think the market will tolerate.

I don’t have an internal marketing team, so how can I support the development of a new website?

All-inclusive web design projects include SEO, guidance in the development of the marketing message and content, as well as input of the final website copy. The project is designed around helping clients create an online marketing presence that encourages both targeted traffic and conversions.

We don’t have a lot of high quality images so what do you suggest?

There are a number of websites that offer affordable stock images for use in website design projects. Most images cost less than twnety dollars per high-resolution image. We typically recommend iStockPhoto.com and Shutterstock.com. If you like one of our photos or our clients’ photos, it is safe to assume it was purchased at one of these websites.

Are your websites search engine friendly?

All of our websites are designed around Google’s guidelines for organic SEO. In addition to having a search engine friendly website, we will create a sitemap.xml file and submit it to Google and Bing upon launch if you’ve purchased an all inclusive package. We will also create a 301 redirect file to help the search engines and visitors find the new pages based on the older pages that are already indexed.

Are any other services included in your web design and development costs?

Yes. If you only have a handful of products, you can use PayPal for payment processing. However, you should understand that your customers will be directed to PayPal’s site while placing their order.

Are any other services included in your web design and development costs?

Yes. Our web design and development service includes configuration of your email accounts, detailed monthly traffic reports and basic search engine optimization services. Basic SEO includes the setup of your primary metatag information (Page Title, Description and Keywords). Additionally, your site is built from the ground up with search engine friendly technologies and methods.
