How much does

Web Design Cost in Christchurch

Along with how much does a logo cost, we get asked all the time how much a website costs. And similarly, there are a lot of factors that go into a web design. The enormous price range depends on a plethora of factors. For instance, you can talk to all the website designers in Christchurch or compare around NZ and the prices will range from very little to a lot.

For Example of some of the factors that affect website cost are:

  • The technology being used to build the website
  • How many pages are needed
  • What kind of customer interaction there will be
  • The number of images and videos
  • The way that data is collected
  • If the website is an eCommerce site where customers can buy products online
  • Amount of time and urgency to complete the site
  • Design of the website
  • If professional copywriting, photos, or videos are included
  • Whether or not there is an existing site with content that can be imported
  • And much more!

You can get a website for as little as $0

Techinallcy yes, that’s true, however, . That’s right; free. Free moneywise at least. That amount increases depending on the list above and what features you need your website to do. A simple custom, professional website can start at around $3600. When done right, a website can be your best sales and marketing tool, built for you and your specific needs, goals, and style will pay for themselves multiple times over, especially when adopting a Growth-Driven Methodology. These days a website is only as good as the content that is on it. And the website cost itself should be indicative of that. A results-focused Inbound website including content creation and SEO optimisation, will cost you anywhere from $8000 + GST. However, if you choose the right people to collaborate with and maintain the website regularly, you’ll start seeing results.

So what’s the difference between a free website, a cheap website, and a professionally built and custom-made website like we do here at Back9 Creative?




Can you really own a website for free?


Technically, yes. Although “Free” might be a tad misleading. As is “website”. Some of the major website builders like Wix and Weebly have a free option with severe limitations and branding. Your site will be full of company branding, have minimal storage, and have the company name in the site address, like But as the price goes, that’s hard to beat. For something like a personal blog or brief info page, these sites can be a good option, but for a business, that “free” price will eat at your sales as you won’t be able to do SEO to get found in Google, you’ll be limited on personal branding, and you won’t be able to actually process payments on the site.

However, if you really don’t have the cash to spare and need a free website for a business, Google is a good option. By creating a Google My Business account and connecting your business listing to it, you have the option to make a “website” that’s a single page.

The benefit of Google over the competition is that it connects to your business listing, so when somebody searches for you and your business pops up, you can have something for them to look at when they click the website field. Again, this type of website is extremely limited but could be a good option if all you wanted to do is show something like a single menu for a new cafe or want to display a list of services and get people to call you. This is an easy way to get yourself online and Google makes it work well on phones too.

The initial inquiry on most individuals’ minds when approaching us is, “What is the cost of a website [in Christchurch]?” Undoubtedly, understanding your budget is crucial. However, the more pertinent question lies in the website’s potential earnings.
