Affordable Custom Website Design for Start-Ups

A customized website and high-quality landing page make your start-up company feel more legit to customers, which makes people more willing to talk about your company.

This is especially true if your company and/or website offers a unique feature or operates in a niche.

Despite these benefits, many start-ups are unequipped to invest in an expensive site or lack the resources to do the programming themselves.

Fortunately, at Clarity Ventures, we work with start-ups and creative entrepreneurs using a payment plan that works for your organization.

We find that the most convenient option for many of our clients 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 third-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.

How to Design a Website for a Start-Up

Depending on what you need the website to do, there are a variety of options. A small marketing website with only a few pages or so is inexpensive and could even be done with Wix or WordPress.

Those platforms are not very secure or robust, but if you install backup plugins, if something happens it’s relatively easy to restore. These sites can be slightly customized and built by a developer or you could give it a go yourself.

Some hosting companies provide a website installer or builder when you host with them. It’s a little more expensive, but if you go that route, our advice is to go with WPEngine. They’re the largest WordPress hosting company and have stellar customer support.

However, while WordPress can work well with the right plugins, we recommend a more secure and robust platform, like DNN, if you’re planning on adding custom functionality and want to adjust the website as your business grows.

That’s one other thing that’s a downside to choosing a platform like Wix or WordPress—they can’t be adjusted or scaled much from their base, so while they may work well at first, you may find yourself struggling with limited functionality as your business grows.

On the other hand, DNN also has a free, open-source version, so the cost between these options can be basically the same. Plus, DNN is more secure and scalable (we’ve built and launched more than 1000 websites on this free version). You can even upgrade it years later when your business takes off!

How Much Does a Start-Up Website Cost?

The answer depends on what you need the website to do and how big it is. A small, five-page WordPress website usually runs $2-6K if you hire a developer. The price depends upon the answers to several questions, including:

  • Who writes the content?
  • Is a pre-built template used?
  • How many custom plugins are needed?
  • How many forms are built?
  • Does the hosting company give a free SSL certificate?
  • How much SEO work is needed?
  • Are there custom graphics and CTAs?

A more robust website with 20-40 pages and features built in 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, and designed to grow with your company. These platforms often service you from start-up mode all the way to enterprise success. Invest for success they say? That holds true for purpose-built websites.

How much does a start-up website cost?

Depending on several factors outlined above, a start-up website can cost anywhere from $2K to $30K. It depends on how complex and large your website will be, who you hire as a developer and hosting company, and what features you need.
