Anyone can do web development, but as a company you would like to have your company website is more than a digital business card. You want your website to be profitableand that happens too little with many websites.
Companies usually want to generate new leads via the website, but are unable to seduce visitors to a conversion. For instance, due to the abundance of information on the website. A conversion ranges from a purchase, to signing up for a newsletter or a membership.
So our first and most important message is: start thinking about the purpose of your website.
We create websites with the most various applicationsFrom simple company websites to webshops, e-commerce websites with subscription systems, member management, and so on.
A Drupal site is quite expensive because customization. This is appropriate when the information architecture (read: navigation, labels/tags and search options) is very specific. In addition, the wireframes are drawn from scratch and the graphic design is fully customised. So: a Drupal website can be compared to a tailor-made suit. The result is usually excellent but the price is correspondingly high. Drupal As a CMS, it is mainly used for complex corporate websites.
For the slightly simpler corporate websites we use the open source platform WordPress.
WordPress has grown from simple blog sites and therefore provides a lot of standard layouts (themes, templates) that have a predefined (but adjustable) information architecture and page structure. Moreover, the graphic design is fully developed. Result: the development is much cheaperbut you also have fewer freedoms.
A WordPress site is therefore comparable to a ready-made suit. Your choice depends on your needs. And your budget.
How much budget do you need to provide?
This is comparable to building a kitchen: prices vary from a few thousand to tens of thousands of euros. And you can prepare a good meal in any normal kitchen. So it all depends on what you want.
General: an informative WordPress site can be built for as little as 1,500 euros. With Drupal this can easily be 10.000 euro. A WordPress webshop can be put up for 5.000-7.000 euro. For Drupal this can easily amount to 25,000 euros. Hence our choice to work with WordPress.
There are no hidden costs. Almost all our web development projects are done at a fixed price. After delivery there is an annual cost for hosting and support. And that will be communicated to you in our first proposal.
We'll start with a kick-off where the project approach and everyone's role and responsibility are explained. During the design phase There are one or more workshops per topic to be discussed (objectives and KPIs, information architecture, wireframes, graphic design and functional requirements). The development phase includes multiple deliveries (sprints) in which a piece of functionality is presented each time.
The time you invest as a customerThis is roughly ⅓ of the time we put into it, not taking into account the content (texts, images, photos, infographics...). We need this time for workshops, consultation and making the necessary choices. As for the content, it can range from a few hours to a never-ending assignment...
In short: we realize your project through intense collaboration.
With just a few hours of training, your webmaster will be familiar with the WordPress CMS to self-editing execute. If necessary, our team is ready to support you.
