  • 4 Common Web Design Pricing
    • There are four common types of web design pricing used in the industry today.
    • Hourly Rate
    • Project Price
    • Package Rates
    • Per Page Cost
  • Charging Hourly
    • Hourly rate is a very common way for web designers to charge their client.
    • At the end of the day, you really “get what you pay for”
  • Average Hourly Rate
    • Student/Offshore RM15 - RM30/hour
    • Freelancer/Company RM25 - RM75
    • Expert Consultant RM50 - RM250
    • Professional Firm RM75 - RM200
  • Per Project Rate
    • Many web design company will give you a set of package price to choose from. Make sure it's what you want before you proceed on with it. For eg:
    • Number of pages you'll need, text, photos, videos and etc
    • Adding page, editing. Any extra charges for addings and so on
    • Maintenance Fees, Hosting, Domains, Yearly Fees
    • Make sure you have a thorough and complete requirements list before you begin the project. A good design firm will break out each section with a list of features, specification and assumptions for each section of your website. Make sure you get it in writing so you both have clear expectations.
  • Package Rates
    • Many web designers will have pre-made packages that are usually cheaper than a complete custom design website. The drawback with packages is that they are probably going to try and fit your business into a pre-made website that might not have all the bells and whistles a custom site has. Most designers will have a flat package rate then allow you to request customization at an additional charge.
  • Per Page Pricing
    • Some web designers will charge a flat rate per page, this can be as low as RM50 although most experienced designers in the will charge RM100 - RM200 per page.
    • This pricing is usually for basic static brochure web sites that do not require a lot of custom features. The per page price may go down (with a bulk discount) depending on the number of pages you need.
    • Note: For static websites, any editing, adding pages or links or photos in the future will be calculated by hourly rate or per task. It may be lower in cost initially but higher in cost in maintenance in the future.
