How Much Does a New Website Cost?

Building a new website can cost as low as $8 a month with a website builder whereas hiring a website design agency in Auckland can cost you anywhere from $700 to $5,900 or even more, depending on your requirements.

Let’s take a look at some of the important aspects that will determine the cost of your new website design.

Website Design

Typically, the simpler the website design, the lower the price. This in no way means that you should opt for a basic website design. Instead, your business should consider your target audience to build a website that is highly targeted, captures their attention and is built to convert your visitors into leads and customers.

If your business sells luxury products such as cologne, your website should reflect the premium quality of your product. Design a simple website and you will fail to impress your target customers, and end up losing valuable customers and revenue.

As your website design agency, Numero will begin by researching your target audience. This will allow us to tailor your website design to your target audience.

Number of Pages

Your website is incomplete without content. That’s why most web design agencies charge according to the number of pages you need. Factors like business, industry, products/services can affect the page count.

An e-commerce website with an extensive list of products, for instance, will need more pages compared to a website for a local electronics store. If you are investing in digital marketing, you may invest in additional pages to compliment your SEO or content marketing strategy.

Typically, web design agencies will offer packages like:

  • 1 to 5 pages – $500 to $1,500
  • 5 to 10 pages – $1,500 to $3,000
  • 10 to 20 pages – $3,000 to $5,000
  • 25 to 50 ages – $6,500 to $10,000 and more

If you are redesigning your business website or building a new one, your web design agency can help you decide the number of pages your site needs. By getting the page count right, your agency can build a stunning, user-friendly, intuitive website for your company.

At Numero, we offer a wide range of packages to suit every budget. So whether you need a one-page website or a 25-page website, we’ve got you covered through our web design packages.

Interactive Media

Interactive media is an excellent way to engage your visitors and improve the user experience. This can range from engaging graphics to product demo videos to interactive games. This is an excellent way to capture and retain the attention of your prospects.

When you are looking to improve your brand awareness, engage users or explain technical products, interactive media can come in handy.

The more complex the interactive media you need, the higher the cost. That is why several business owners choose a web design agency over a freelancer who charges an hourly rate instead of quoting a flat rate.

E-commerce Functionality

An e-commerce system includes several tasks such as:

  • Incorporating a payment processing system
  • Integrating payment gateways
  • Creating product pages
  • Testing payment options, shopping carts and shipping systems

An e-commerce system not only ensures buyers can shop for your products but also enables your team to process those orders. That’s extremely critical to the success of an online business.

For an e-commerce business to succeed, an e-commerce system is inevitable. Without functions like a shopping cart, payment gateway or shipping system, your business cannot take or process online orders.

Given that an e-commerce functionality is vital to your operations, you must consider the cost of building an online store when budgeting for website design. It’s also important for your business to choose an e-commerce system that offers a seamless shopping experience to your shoppers.

The cost of an e-commerce website depends on factors such as the size of your business, the number of products you have and the average daily, monthly and annual orders.


Copywriting is another element that influences the cost of your website design project.

Depending on your online marketing strategy and budget, you may use your agency’s help for creating copy for your website. If you do decide to do that, be sure to hire a full-service online marketing company like Numero that offers the complete range of digital marketing services.

A full-service agency can create optimised copy that reflects your brand, its USP and the features of your product/service. And what is optimised copy? Content that incorporates your target keywords to help reach the target audience.

For instance, let’s assume someone wants to buy “baby diapers”. This phrase contains the keyword “baby diapers”, which you could target on the product page for Baby Diapers.

If you are not sure what search engine optimisation (SEO) is and how it works, then it’s best to have an expert handle the copywriting task. This way, you can be sure of maximum results and ROI.

The good news is that copywriting is a standard inclusion in all of our website design packages. So no matter which web design package you choose, we will provide SEO optimised copy.
