Digital Facelift

If you’re considering giving you’re website a facelift or would like to someone to maintain the site. The cost would be considerably lower.

Also, there can be a significant cost difference between doing it yourself with a Website Builder, hiring a Freelancer, or hiring a Web Design Agency.

Each business model has its pros and cons. Below, we’ll break down each.

Website Builder

A third party website builder requires web design experience, UI knowledge and most importantly TIME. It can take as little as two hours to 30+ days to develop a simple site due to lack of experience. However, this is the most inexpensive option, when building a website. You’re not paying anyone to create the site, which generally can cost between $50 to $150 an hour. Now, the question is What is your time worth?The cost to use a Website builder is from $100 – $1,000.


Hiring a Freelancer is easy, and it cost a less than a web design agency. However, working with Freelancer is not always a pleasant experience. Freelancers usually work out of their homes, are often from a different country, which means different time zone and language, understanding barrier. They don’t have a set schedule, no urgency to complete the task due to low cost or deliver within the given deadline.A cost for Freelancer to develop a website can range between $700 – $5,000 for a single site.

Web Design Agency

A web design agency is probably the more expensive option from the three. However, like the saying “you get, what you pay for.” Agencies tend to be more reliable, work with a team of experts from graphic designers, web developers, content writers, and work out of office setting. The agency can be local or across State, can meet in person or have a web meeting or call, no language barrier and most importantly ability to understand your needs.A Web Design Agency’s cost to develop a single custom website can be from $2,000 – $20,000+.
