Custom web development: How much should a website cost?

The estimated cost of a website can be a very challenging figure to arrive at exactly due to all the variables involved. The method that I use when estimating a custom website design for a client is to gather information on the goals, requirements and funtionality of the site, and then arrive at a total project price based on the number of hours that I think the project will take to complete. I factor in time required for keyword research and analysis, research of competing websites, and industry or business catagory research when necessary.

A detailed Contract for Work, itemizing the work to be done, milestones and payment shedule, is then drawn up. An initial down payment is required to begin work, generally one half or one third of the total project. Any additional work not included in the original contract will then be billed hourly upon approval, or by an additional contract for work requiring more than three days to complete.

I define one website page as having a maximum length or height of approximately 1500 pixels or two screen views, i.e., having one "fold". Other factors figured into a custom design include database development, backend programming, eCommerce integration, and more.
