Do You Need A Website?
One good indication is whether other agencies like yours, serving the same or a similar constituency, have a website. And how sophisticated is it?
Most nonprofits are well served by a website because they need to interact with their donors, volunteers and perhaps those they serve.
The Process of Website Development
The process of developing a new website — or redesigning an existing one — involves a natural progression:
Estimating the Development Cost
The cost of designing and developing webpages is very much in line with the development costs of designing a professional brochure, annual report or other business publication. It's not surprising because both use similar skills with the same intensity of effort. Based on the time usually involved, the initial design alone costs a couple of thousand dollars. The creation of the working web page to be used as a template costs several thousand more and then the creation of all the individual pages averages around $150 - 300 per page. A site with more than 30 or 40 pages will see economies of scale, although often a site that complex incorporates more sophisticated interactivity and other functions.
There are, however, ways to keep the costs down. Click here to review them.
For very small or young nonprofits, we can at least offer some guidance about approaches to help you get an inexpensive website.
