How Much Should a Website Cost?

Good article here about client expectations for web site pricing and the match or not with reality.

My Rule: you get what you pay for. Don’t want to pay much, then don’t expect extra effort. My rule is if client won’t do a maintenance/SEO contract then they are not serious and site is a ‘hobby’ site. After all, a newspaper doesn’t run your ad if you don’t pay every month. No different for a web site. Lead generation is lead generation. It cost money.

Here are my web design pricing guidelines. Depending on your needs and scope of project total pricing will vary of course. But all in all my prices are very reasonable. Just don’t compare me with your cousin’s friend in high school/college who charges less. See RULE above.


Photography Site Launched

Just completed the design and launch of client’s Bruce BeBonis photo site. TravelThroughPictures.com

This is just Phase one. Phase two will be adding e-commerce features: prints, posters, framed art etc.
Another angle is image licensing. A fine service that does this well is Photoshelter.com

The photography market is huge and growing. The trick to making money is picking a niche where you can excel.
Bruce has the bird and nature niche nailed. His pictures are first rate. It really helps to have top of the line Canon gear to pull this off, especially for that shallow depth of focus effect. Take a look at the bird galleries and see for yourself.
