...is usually quite true but it's not very helpful when you just want an idea of the numbers involved. Prices vary depending on requirements but generally, I can provide:
* Home page, services page, about page and a contact page would be an example of a basic website.
As a freelancer, my overheads are lower than a design studio, so you get a professional website for less. Prices obviously depend on what's required and how long something is going to take but there are no hidden costs or nasty surprises. I am honest and upfront about costs.
If you wanted to use images sourced from the internet on your website, these can either be free or paid stock images. Using your own photos/images is always a good idea though to bring a more personal touch to your website. Add-ons also come in free and paid variety. In some cases, a paid add-on may be well worth the money in the long run, for example, the media manager module could be useful for a media heavy website.
If your website requires regular work (or you need to budget for the whole year) then a good option is to pay for regular maintenance. This would be a set amount per month/year which would cover various agreed points. Please contact me here to dicuss your requirements.
