In this article I want to talk about great value web design. One of the reasons why small business owners put off getting a website is cost. Often they have a preconception that web design has to be expensive.

Newsflash: web design really does NOT need to be expensive in 2023.

There was a time when website design involved paying an agency thousands of pounds/dollars. Even one-man band web designers had to charge £500-£1,000 as it would take them days or weeks to create a decent site using code. But this was before the likes of WordPress, WIX, Squarespace and Shopify came along and massively sped up the web design process.

At GreatSite 4U we offer great value web design by creating professional websites quickly, using a mixture of WordPress wizardry and fine copywriting skills, so we can our rates as low as £300 for a simple 1- to 3-page website with free hosting for one year. This is extremely competitive, especially when you strip down the costs that you would be faced with if you wanted to try and create a similar site yourself.

Breakdown of costs to build a WordPress website:

  1. Domain registration and hosting: £50 per year
  2. Divi software: £90 per year
  3. Licence-free images: £30

Approx yearly cost: £140
One-off costs: £30

When you come to us for great value web design, we don’t simply create a website for you; we will also cover the domain registration and hosting costs for the first year. This saves you up to £50 right off the bat. We also cover the cost of Divi, which is an advanced WordPress website builder that costs around £90 per year if you are not a lifetime member of Elegant Themes. So already that’s £140 that you’d have to pay yearly (£1,400 after 10 years). On top of this, you’re likely to want some professional, high-resolution images on your website. We subscribe to Adobe Stock Library so if you commission us to design your site, we will cover the cost of images for you, saving you the one-off cost of around £20-£30 on average.

So when you look at it like that, it’s clear to see that GreatSite 4U websites are truly great value. If you’d like us to build YOU a website for your business, get in touch today.
