Every site is different in one way or another, so there is no one size fits all answer. For a 10 page info site suitable for small businesses and individuals, the industry estimates anywhere from AUD$2,000 to AUD$10,000 to build, depending on how/what with it is built, the amount of work it will take to complete, and both depend on the project requirements. We use Joomla! CMS (Content Management System) which you can read more about here, second most popular CMS in the world after WordPress, and majority of our info site projects fall between AUD$3,500 and AUD$7,000 range to build.
Structure aside as it is completely dependent on the project at hand, each website includes:
* Image optimisation means preparing your images for the web. Reducing image size and image 'weight' in terms of storage. It does not include image processing, improving images or modifying image format ratios.
** site optimisation means improving content delivery by means of compressing data sent from the server to reduce load times and improve user experience and page speed ratings
*** basic SEO means we cover SEO title, description and image alt tags. In depth SEO is available as an optional service.
There are no licenses for the site or its use. Above mentioned licenses are strictly for additionally required components (added functionality if required) that may not be free, and come with a free updates period (3-12 months in general). Any such license purchased is yours for life (rare subscription based services if needed, are excluded). One license we always use is the visual framework on which we build the site layout, and usually results in around 50-70% lower costs of visual side of development than custom programming.
