There’s not one single answer to this question. At Cowlick studios a website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different functionality, we design and develop custom websites specifically for your business. We’ll provide a questionnaire and ask a lot of questions, and give you a quote based on that information. The average investment with Cowlick Studios is $2500. However as our model has changed and we will build your site start to finish including content and photos the cost will be $5000.

We aim for a six to eight week turnaround, but the pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you provide during the early stages, your timely feedback, how soon the content is ready – all this affects the speed of completion. If the site we are building for you has unique functionality this will also play a part in how long the site will take to develop.
We design and develop websites from start to finish. Our experience tells us that the part of the web design process that takes the longest is waiting for content from our customers.

That is why we take care of it. We will schedule meetings with you and ask a lot of questions, you are the expert on your business. Once we have answers one of our copywriters and our photography team will take it from there. This way the task will be less daunting for you.

Owning your own domain gives you more control.
