The internet has spread like an epidemic across the world and everyone is looking for a spot on the World Wide Web. A lot of offline businesses are facing tough competition from their online counterparts, and thus, every business, old or new is trying to reach out to people through the internet. Web Developers and designers can help you project your idea, service or product to the world by designing a website just for your business. Web developers and designers can help you design a new website, redesign your old website or edit minor details on your website. At UrbanHands, we connect you with experienced web developers who can develop a basic business website, an e-commerce website or can even design a customized website for an idea or blog; you’d want the world to know about.
We have categorised websites largely into 3 types- Basic Business websites, E-Commerce websites and websites which are based on a unique concept or idea. All these websites can be designed either in a template format or a customised format.
A basic business website is developed for start-ups or existing ‘Small and Medium Enterprises’ (SME’s) that want to go online and showcase what their business is about. A basic business website provides all the information about the company and the services and products they offer. A static business which wants to expand its customer base by providing them with relevant information should hire a web designer to build them a basic business website. A website which is to be built in a template format would cost somewhere between 7,000-10,000 rupees and a website which is to be built from scratch and is in a customised format ranges somewhere between 12,000-15,000 rupees.
E-Commerce websites are designed to sell goods and services online. If you are a business that wants to sell its services and products to customers online, you need a web developer to develop an e-commerce website which lists everything your business has to offer. A basic e-commerce, single vendor website built in a template format costs between 20,000-50,000 rupees. A multi-vendor e-commerce website can range up to 80,000 rupees. The cost increases with new additions in merchant services such as payment gateways, filtering, user interface etc.
The websites under this category can comprise of both e-commerce websites and basic business websites. If you have a unique idea that needs to be projected online, you could contact the web developer according to your budget and share your idea with them. These websites can be both templates based and customised.
A basic business website showcases what your business is about. It is an informational website that lists all your products and services and gives details about each one of them. An e-commerce website will enable the customers to purchase the goods and services that the business provides. The e-commerce website will function as an online market whereas the basic business website is more like a catalogue of the business.
The customers who are willing to hire a web designer should know that they are not content creators or content developers. Whatever content that needs to be put on the site should be handed over to them well in advance, to avoid delay in project completion. Also, they should keep in mind that with every addition in merchant service, the price increases too. Thus, they should be very clear about what they want their website to showcase and should convey their needs to the developer well in advance.
Agile is an iterative approach to web/software development wherein the software is built from scratch but is delivered in phases rather than all at once. It works by breaking projects down into parts, prioritising them and then delivering them in cycles. High budget websites are developed in this way.
A lot of pre-designed templates are available online and the customer can choose any one of them to develop their website. As a template is developed by a different coder, it cannot be tampered with much, and thus, a web developer will have to stick to the basic template design. When a website is built in a customised way, it is developed from scratch. The hired web developer will have to write the codes and thus, various additions and subtractions are possible in the website. The customised website will be developed keeping in mind the budget and needs, along with the likes and dislikes of the customer.
