Courtenay Web Design
Updated May 5th 2022
Dear Courtenay Business owners:
Searching for a Courtenay web design company? Well website designers seem like they’re everywhere nowadays so you’ll likely have quite a few options. You may also be looking around for website design rates, wondering how much you need to invest and what you can expect in a redesigned site or new website design for your business.
How much for a professional website design? Well, like with most everything else website design prices seem kind of hard to pin down for some reason. Not only are there a lot of different degrees of designing skills and services provided when it comes to web designers, you also want to know what’s included in the price? At Cahill Web Studio, we aren’t afraid of answering a direct question like this. Check out our rates page for some general info and project outline that may be of help.
Not all websites are created equal, so we’re happy to provide you with our basic rates to help you outline your budget. Keep in mind the following while pricing things out, be sure to consider the following elements:
- Website design & development costs
- Logo design (if needed)
- Image licensing (photos for your website)
- Domain name registration (www.yourwebsite.ca)
- Website hosting (where your website will live)
Low Cost Website Design
Lets talk about website builders, you know the ones that offer you websites for free or some for just pennies a day. Or maybe you know someone who has a little bit of experience designing sites and they can do one for you for almost nothing – like the price of a couple beer and a BBQ. Sounds good right? Well maybe not, when you consider the saving yourself the time, money and energy, the cheap website falls way short of creating a distinct brand image and will probably just occupy a lonely spot on the Internet with no visitors to show for all that effort. Many of these sites will be written with bad spelling or grammar, no search engine best design practices and may never return any investment for your business, regardless of how little you invest. A Professional website designer has the skills and training to create new opportunities for your business online, by driving quality web traffic, and ultimately winning you much needed leads and/or online orders. After all, a well designed and effective website will act as a critical sales agent for your organization, operating 24-hours per day. It’s for this reason, you may consider investing a bit more on your website than a couple of beer and a BBQ -your business is worth it.

“I been around forever, I Don’t Need a Website”
Maybe not. Most people in the web design business probably tell you you do need a website, but there are no rules that say every business must have one. Most people do most of their looking for products and services online and expect a business to offer information online, however, you can probably think of many Courtenay businesses that do just fine without any web presence at all. Just like any marketing strategy you initiate, Internet marketing should really be about a measurable results, your return on your investment and while websites are usually great for client communication, they don’t necessarily generate dollars for your company without a good strategy to do so.
Search Engine Marketing Plan
OK so you’ve launch your new website and hired new staff to help manage the crowds.. think again, this does not automatically mean your visitor traffic will start flowing in, and you’ll be drinking all this extra business out of a fire hose.. some businesses have discovered this the hard way. It doesn’t matter whether you invested a few hundred bucks, or tens of thousands into creating you new website, a website that no one visits is simply a waste of money and time. A realistic look at your traffic expectations and a plan on how to specifically attract this traffic to your website before you build it is a crucial step. There are a lot of ways to draw online visitor traffic to your website, whether it’s advertising referrals, linking or an Search Engine Optimization campaign that will grow your keyword rankings through major search engines. But whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of believing that your website will somehow just magically get that top spot in “Google rankings” all on its own -because it won’t. Whether you are targeting visitor traffic locally in Courtenay, BC or globally, you may find it challenging to achieve a top ranking search result for keywords, particularly if you are developing a new website and have a lot of competitors.
