What’s the difference between a DIY website and a professional website?
In a professional website, we have 2 classes of websites: the symbol web design websites and the SEO centered designed websites.
What’s the difference between the simple web design websites?
A web designer can design websites with very fancy graphics but no SEO, because a website needs content.
You need passages, text even on the front page at least 1.000 – 2.000 words.
Also, you need blogs posts to have links to your web pages, to your contact pages, to the fried potato pages as we say in SEO and this means that someone, a copywriter has to do this job and a copywriter today is not free and is not cheap, because copywriting is the first thing you need to do in order to start ranking on Google.
So, the difference in the cost is huge, because a simple website can start from 500 euros and a SEO-centered website from 1.000 euros.
So, we can have multiple differences on the prices and multiple impacts in the Search Engines, like Google, because we can’t hit first places with a symbol web design, because nothing will be in it.
Also, we have to surpass the baby phase of your website, the sandbox mode that Google and other Search Engines are not ranking your website and you need 6 – 12 months to pass this phase.
In order to pass it straight ahead and at lesser time, you need to add content and backlinks to your website, so you need a professional.
Don’t forget to like and subscribe to our channel. Also, subscribe to our newsletter and smash the ring bell in order to take the updates. I will categorize the phases of the DIY website and the professional SEO-centered web design in 5 big phases.
The first is the domain, the second is the hosting, the third is the logo design, because branding is essential and WordPress is the fourth and the fifth is some SEO work you need to do at least in the start. There are the lesser steps for your website in order to step up in Google.
1. Domain name
Let’s go straight to number 1 that is domain name. How much a domain name cost today?
From the bigger providers, the price starts from 8-9 euros, but the most average price is 12 euros for .com, .net, .org, that are the most preferable suffixes for SEO.
Then, for a national suffix like .gr, .de, .co.uk is about 24 euros for 2 years for the .gr suffix and about fifteen euros for the other suffixes or national domains.
So, the prices are a bit fixed and you cannot avoid them.
You should not buy domain names that are cheaper or something else apart from the 3 main domain names like .com, .org, .net or the national suffixes.
2. Web hosting
The second is web hosting. MyIP networks is the best hosting company in the world, because they have the best service and LiteSpeed hosting servers and the prices start from smaller packages from 72 euros, minus 50% with the coupon code PARAMARKETING50, so the price is only 36 euros.
But you can scale on the next packages that is 112 euros, then 200 euros and 320 euros and then to the VPS servers from 440 euros and to a big, huge server for big websites that could cost 2.500 euros per year.
It’s an annual cost, but you can choose to pick up the coupon code PARAMARKETING50 and take 50% off your next hosting forever.
It’s not only for one year, but forever so a small website you can spend only 36 euros and for a medium website it is about 200 euros, minus 50%, it is 100 euros for a professional website.
3. Logo design
Then, the third step is the logo design. Branding is very essential. At start, Paramarketing site didn’t have any logo at all. It was only me with my content.
The content was very useful and many people loved the site, they were clicking inside to read the posts and registering in the newsletter or the YouTube channel.
You can do your registration now, because we are losing so many subscribers.
If you like the channel you can leave your comment below. Do you prefer DIY WordPress design or professional SEO centered wed design? Leave your comment to see which is the winner!
So, you need a professional logo, like the logo of BMW and Mercedes Benz. I have my new logo with the Puppy coin, the new cryptocurrency I’ve just build in the previous month. In 3 weeks we just made 6.000% up or 60x, so buy Puppy coin from the PancakeSwap.
But as you can see, the best thing about Puppy coin is the logo.
All the Meme coins, like Dogecoin which is the first in this category, Puppy coin has a very beautiful, very sympathetic logo with a puppy.
So, you understand the meaning of a professional logo. You can do it by yourself for free by spending only your personal time, by visiting Logodesign.net that offers free logo designs or by searching in Google for free logo designs.
There are many services and if you are good at designing you can make something at least satisfactory for the start and later you can upgrade it to a professional logo with a professional graphic designer.
If you choose a professional graphic designer for the start in order to build an excellent, an outstanding design then you need at least 200 – 700 euros to make something good with good colors and beautiful branding.
The logo is very essential for Google and branding is one of the ranking factors that now Google is taking into consideration.
4. WordPress web design
So, the fourth step is WordPress web design.
WordPress is the best CMS (Content Management System) in the world, is better than Joomla, better than Wix, better than Blogger, because it is friendly in Google.
It is SEO friendly, not by itself, but its architecture is better than the others and it’s easier for beginners to use it.
If you are a beginner, you can install WordPress in MyIP cPanel and then you can start working on your website in order to give it life. The cost is only your personal time.
On the contrary, if you use our SEO centered web design company, we can make a beautiful website for you, starting from 1.000 euros.
You can find in India cheaper prices, but we are offering SEO-centered web design services and we cannot charge less than 1.000 euros per website. So, how about WooCommerce, big shops or other websites?
You can pay thousands of euros, for instance if you choose e-lianiko in Greece that is another subsidy you can take for your website, it may cost you 5.000 or more, because you need to take professional photos of your products, you need to have connection and all that stuff that may cost you 10.000 euros.
So, it’s fair enough to bear in mind that there are different prices on the market.
The fifth step is the SEO. If you are a SEO lover and you love this channel, you can subscribe. I know that by our weekly newsletters, you are a student of this system, of Paramarketing and you know some things by yourself. The cost is your personal time.
You need at least to do something in the first month, is the lesser thing you can do, but SEO needs time to work. It’s a long term activity and you need at least 12 months to see organic results rise. Find out 7 Reasons to hire an SEO Agency! The seventh will sock you!.
So, if you do it for 1 month by making some profile links, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and some backlinks to other friendly websites, Pinterest, Tumblr and all that stuff, then the cost is your personal time.
But, if you go to a professional company, like ours, the cost for international SEO starts from 5.000 euros and can go as high as 30.000 euros, because of the huge competition and the prices are a bit higher than in other places in the world.
How much a website cost today?
So, let’s sum up today’s video. How much does a WordPress web design cost today if you do it by yourself or if you hire a professional company like us, a SEO Agency?
If you do it by yourself the cost is 12 dollars for the domain, 36 dollars for the hosting and all the other is free.
All you need is 48 dollars and your personal time!
On the other hand, we have 12 dollars for the domain, 100 dollars for the hosting, 1.000 for the web design and 5.000 for SEO – for the first month at least -, so it is approximately 6.112 euros to start something that will make in impact in Google.
