Black and Red Gradient Line
We have listed some things for you to make a better guess at what the scope and cost of your project or Website will cost. Remember that this is only a ballpark guide and could certainly be less and could be more than projected. The more working parts you add to your Website will also increase your cost, not unlike building a house. We suggest sticking to the absolutely required items and adding as you go. There are a couple factors that would make it difficult if not impossible to grow, those being a “flash website and a CMS that doesn’t provide for adding sections or pages.
