Kenya’s website design prices varies by who you chose to work with, and many business owners are always caught in a fix between choosing the most competent vendor and fitting their budget. We hope to provide a different perspective most businesses do not see, especially when being narrow-minded by budget constraints.
A simple yet good looking website can be created for free with platforms like Wix or SquareSpace if you are in the mood for some DIY. Else, a website done by a freelancer or a small web design setup will cost you between Ksh. 50,000 to Ksh. 5,000,000. Some even throw in freebies like business cards, logo design.
Although there are grants like the TEF to help local businesses subsidize some costs, many web agencies in Kenya are emphasizing too strongly on these grants that they are not educating their prospects that a competent website or digital strategy will eventually earn them more than what the government can subsidize, if done right.
We know your concern especially if your last website did not give you positive returns or worse still, sat there like a white elephant while your competitors grabbed all the online sales and leads which could have been yours.
Preparing a low budget restricts your options of hiring more competent web agencies that may give you more professional consultation and a tailored strategy, while on the other hand you do not want to blow all your money without knowing what returns you can get.
You may be called upon to prove that the company’s website is worth the investment, or even to defend your budget – and that could mean defending your salary too if you are in that position.
But the ROI of a website isn’t always as simple as presenting “expenses out” and “profits in”, especially for non e-commerce website.
