Sometimes You Only Get One Shot

Jumpstart Your Business With Style

It’s easy to see the value a customized website or high quality landing page can bring for a start-up organization – it helps get your name out, inform potential customers and investors, and makes it easy for people to find and communicate with you. Despite the benefits of a freshly-designed and customized site, many of our potential clients are either unequipped to invest in such an expensive site at the moment, or lack the resources to do the programming themselves. Fortunately, Clarity loves working with start-up companies and creative entrepreneurs to work out a payment plan that will work for your organization.

We find that the most convenient option for many of our client's is to go with one of our less powerful, and therefore less expensive options. When clients come to us with a concern over short-term liquidity, we can offer solutions to your website ideas that take some of the "gold-plating" elements out of it. While still creating a functional site, we can offer a basic platform for you at a much lower cost up front. When the time comes that you are ready to step up your site a notch, Clarity will already be familiar with the workings of your site and web design to create a smooth transition to a higher quality website. Alternatively, some of our clients also choose to get our help implementing a 3rd party option. While it does come at a cost, it can be far worth it in the long-term to have the marketing and branding that comes from a website created right off the bat.

Answers to Common Questions

FAQS

How Do I Create the Best Startup Website?

Well that all depends on what you need the site to do. A small 5-page, marketing website is very inexpensive and could be done with Wix or WordPress. Those platforms are not very secure or robust, but if you install backup plugins and something happens, it's relatively easy to restore the site. They can be slightly custom designed and built by a developer or you could give it a go yourself. Some hosting companies even provide a website installer or builder when you host with them. It's a little more expensive, but if you go that route, go with WPEngine. They're the largest WordPress hosting company in the world and have stellar customer support.

While there are a lot of plugins for WordPress, we recommend a more secure and robust platform, like DNN, if you're planning on adding custom functionality and want the site to be able to grow and be customized as your business grows. DNN also has an open-source version that's free, so the cost is almost the same, but the platform is much more secure and scalable (we've built and launched more than 800 sites on this free version). You can also upgrade it years later when you business takes off!

How Much Does a Startup Website Cost?

As with the question above, it all depends on what you need the site to do, and how big the site is. A small 5-page, WordPress, marketing site, usually runs $2-6k. Variables fluctuate based on who writes the content, is a pre-built template used, how many custom plug-ins are needed, how many forms are built, does the hosting company give a free SSL certificate, how much SEO work is needed, are there any custom graphics and CTAs, etc. The list goes on and on.

A more robust, 20-40 pages, feature-built website normally runs $10-30k. These types of websites will normally come with some SEO and CRO work, possibly an eCommerce store, and is designed to help drive and convert traffic to help grow your business. These types of sites are normally built on a platform, like DNN or Sitefinity, designed to grow with your company, servicing you from startup mode all the way to Enterprise success. Invest for success they say? That holds true for purpose-built websites.
