"How much does a website cost?" Almost every Client begins with that question. I usually turn it arond based on their business. For a contractor I might ask, "How much does it cost to build a house?" For an advertiser I'll try, "How much will it cost to run my ad?" The answer for all above questions is, "It depends on your needs."
So my job is to define your needs. Do you have or need a logo? Do you need help obtaining your domain name and hosting vendor or do you have these already? Do you plan to sell products on your website? Do you have a gallery of photos you need to show or just a few pics with text?
I'm not talking about your garden party pick-a-template-from-a-pre-designed library that everyone chooses from, and off you go. I'm a designer, not a re-seller. I design the look of your site to represent your company, your preferences, your taste, your needs. You're unique. Your website should be unique.
But since you are probably still curious about costs, here's a general breakdown that will give you an idea of what to expect.
