Have More Questions?
We hope you'll find the answer here!
The unfortunate truth is "it depends." There are lots of factors that go into the cost of developing a website.
- How many pages are there?
- Who is writing the copy?
- Are there any complex tables?
- How many web forms will be needed?
- Will there need to be any marketing automation built in?
- Are there any custom applications that must be built?
- Will custom photography be required?
- Will the site need to be integrated with any third party applications?
- How many documents will need to be uploaded and linked?
The list goes on and on.
Unless we know the answers to these and many more questions, it's virtually impossible to estimate the cost of development. Most assessor websites range from just under $9,000 to well over $30,000.
We recently quoted a 45-page website at $22,000. We estimated it would take 170 hours to build it, all in.
A competitor quoted the same site for $4,500. The interesting thing is the competitor didn't itemize the number of pages to be built, the amount of copywriting to be done, any SEO work that might be included, any redirects that would point old pages to new pages, any photos or illustrations that needed be be located and remastered, any web forms that would need to be built or how many fields would be on those forms, any marketing automation that would be included on the backend, etc.
The bottom line is, this competitor either didn't know what they were doing, or they did and they just planned on surprising the client with massive cost overrun charges after they were knee deep in the buildout of the site.
We're not the least expensive web design firm out there, nor are we the most expensive, but when it comes to assessor websites, we've got the experience and the integrity you need.
If you're getting quoted ridiculously low prices for a website, be sure to look under the hood, first. It's very likely that you're not getting quoted for everything you'll need and you'll be charged for add-ons later. Either that or the work will be done in a third world country. Neither situation will end well.
With us, you'll know exactly what we're going to build and the quality that you can expect when we deliver it.
We've been in business since 2001, and during that time we've built well over 1,500 websites and dozens of custom mobile and web applications. Assessors offices happens to be one of the areas where we have great expertise. We started building Assessor websites in Louisiana, and we've built more of them than any of our Louisiana competitors.
We build exclusively on the WordPress platform. The majority of our sites are built using Thrive Theme Builder, which gives you amazing WYSWIG control over your content with pixel-perfect accuracy.
We host our sites with WP Engine on their top-tier servers using their highest level of security. You can rest assured that your website and data will be secure with us. We also make sure that WordPress as well as your themes and plugins are kept up-to-date, so that the latest bug fixes and security patches are rapidly installed on your site.
We specialize in website design and content that informs property owners and takes a load off of the assessor's office. We do not offer GIS services, but instead, we work with all third party GIS mapping services to ensure seamless integration with your website.
