Website Development Vs Web Design

What is the difference between website development and website design?

Many people always get confused when they search online for website development company and website design. Do they mean the same thing? Well in actually fact, they are totally different but to the layman person they mean the same.

A website development is building a website with a Content Management System, or what we commonly hear as a CMS. This can be build on various method. WordPress is a CMS, and so is drupal and many other systems. A website development is normally a customized project of development to the back end of the website for a particular function. The function can be like E-commerce driven or can also be a membership website. As long as it’s a function that needs to be customized, it is considered a website development project.

What is the price range for a website development?

Website development normally ranges from a minimum of $15,000.00 to up to $1,000,000.00 in cases where it is complicated. This is calculated based on the level of expertise from the programmers or better known as web developers and their skill level and the time it takes to complete the web development project assigned to them. In most companies, website developers are paid an average of $25 to $50 per hour.

Although projects like Word Press Based Web Development projects may seem simple to many but there is actually much time to consider in this development to ensure that quality web development project is delivered to the client. Normally for a Word Press website, there will be about 3 developers to work on it. And everyone will have a role to play in the development life cycle. It is not just a one man show and can be settled type of development work.

Your website is ultimately your main source of sales leads so it is very important to find the right website development company who can manage your project efficiently. Do not consider those cheap freelancers or those programmers from other countries other than you own. Unless it’s a big and reputable company. As in the end if there is something wrong with your website development, you will have a migraine on it and the changes and fixes will be time consuming.

Website development also normally comes with a warranty of 1 month or 30 days from completion. Bronze Media LLP Singapore is the only Website development company in Singapore which offers a warranty of 90 days so it is worry free.

What is website design?

The term web design simply means designing of the website. A web designer does not means a web development project But normally with the demand of aesthetic beauty to the websites, Website designer and Website developers are always working closely to each other on projects.

A web design project normally is just done in simple HTML based or using software like dream weaver. You are actually paying for the expertise of a creative designer to do up your website rather then the development of the project. Designers needs time to be creative and they are expensive as compared to developers. Designers always have to think of new ideas, and developers is just plain coding development work.

A web design is considered to be good if the designer can illustrate out different variations for your choice. A design work is normally done by 1 single designer to undertake the client responsibility alone.

What is the price range for a web design?

The price range for a web design actually depends on the level of experience and exposure the designer has. In web design you can find those interns or students to do for you, but of course, you pay how much you get the equivalent in quality. A experience designer normally gets paid between $6000 to $8000 a month and those average designers get paid about just $2000 to $3000 a month

So for a website design project, the key is to response fast to the web design company and not make that much changes as it will greatly reduce your overall cost to your company.

If you are thinking of doing a website design and if the web design company tells you that it will take about 2 weeks, just do an estimate calculation of his salary for 2 weeks and the cost of the web design will be about there. You might need to put in some extra like 30 to 50% of the costing to it as the company still needs to earn something and its not just a resource rental service.

Web Design with Web Development costing?

Now we understand the different terms of web design and website development, we can easily put the costing together to calculate how much will ie cost.

With the scenario as below, A web development project takes about 1 month to complete for a wordpress based website.

  • You will need 3 developers with an average salary of $25/$50/$50 for each hour
  • 1 day total salary is $125.00
  • Based on 1 month project, the total days will be at 22 working days so its 22 days X 8 hours X $125.00 =$22,000.00
  • Add the web designer salary we just factor in half a month is about $4,000.00
  • Thus for a web design and web development project, it will cost an estimate about $26,000.00

WOW. That’s a lot of money! Yes and we know the economic sense of it and because the developers are not only working on your project but consecutively working on other projects at the same time thus the fees is normally around the $15,000.00 range

Logo design comes in many shapes and sizes and comes in many prices with many different graphic designers depending on their experience and skill level. Some people will turn to freelancers or those Fiverr sites to get their logo design.

Such decision of the company of budget design of the llogo only means the company is not interested in doing a long term business with you but more to a fast one time transaction to rip you off.

Beware of trending keyword spam that affects your SEO.

“Beat with a shovel the weak google spots” keyword spam is a very shameful tactic used to promote online content. Keyword spammers use this tactic for several reasons:

  • Keyword spammers want to promote a specific webpage, program, or browser add-on and want webmasters to visit the webpage or search for it online and visit it through Google results pages. In this case the keyword spam is promoting thecom add-on for Mozilla.
  • Keyword spammers want to boost their rank in Google Search and acquire backlinks by generating dubious keywords associated with a hostname webpage.

Keyword spam itself is not entirely dangerous to your website. It will most likely not cause any trouble with how your website is accessed by your visitors or ranked by Google. However, in some cases keyword spam may use up your website’s bandwidth and CPU by creating multiple site requests to your website. In other cases, keyword spam is generated by traffic bots which create ghosts hits and never actually land on your website.

The biggest issue with keyword spam is that it can mess up your Google Analytics data. Keyword spam can ruin your website’s bounce rate. Search term traffic from dubious keyword spam hostname URLs ‘mostly’ land on a single page on your website. They also leave from the single page which may create an artificial 100% bounce rate. Keyword spam can also ruin other Google Analytics data including your Acquisition and Behavior data. Since keyword spam only shows up in your Google Analytics metrics you can create a filter to block keyword spam using your GA account.

Keyword spam will not essentially hurt your search terms or the way your website appears in Google. Google is aware of this tactic and is great at protecting websites against “keyword spam bombs.” For example, not too long ago a malware author tried to Google bomb Botcrawl.com with the term “Viagra.” However, nothing on our website references Viagra and if you search for “Viagra” in Google you will not find Botcrawl.com listed in search result pages.

How to block “beat with a shovel the weak google spots” keyword spam

At the moment, the only way to stop keyword spam is to make an exclude filter in your Google Analytics account.

  1. Go to theAdmintab.
  2. SelectAll Filtersin the Account section and click + ADD FILTER.
  3. For the filter name enter “beat with a shovel the weak google spots addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ilovevitaly” or something easy you can remember to relate to this spam.

SEO consultant in Singapore

This is especially the case in Singapore where business are very competitive and business owners will need to be innovative in order to beat other competitors in the market.

But using SEO services is always a daunting task as business owners will need to understand the Algorithm aspects of SEO and how to maximize their budget when doing their SEO campaigns after selecting the related keywords to advertise on the search engine and this is just the fundamental steps
to increase your SEO rankings.

Knowing the challenges that companies and business owners finds, many agencies that specialize in SEO and Digital marketing has emerged to offer SEO services and act as SEO consultants to advice the business owners on how to achieve the best results in SEO ranking especially in Google search engine.

SEO consultant will usually discuss with their client and guide them through the process of SEO.
Selection of Keywords which is highly competitive and visible, managing their campaigns, doing link building for their websites and other related task are part of the SEO consultant valuable skillsets to  relieve their client of the hassle  instead of doing SEO by themselves which the end result may not be desirable if the business owners do it the wrong way.

Finding the Right SEO consultant to handle their SEO campaigns and advertisement is never an easy task for companies and business owners as they can only appraise their SEO consultant capability based on the end result which is usually the Sales conversion during or after the campaign.

In Singapore, those SEO consultants and agencies who are well known in the market are very reliable for they can customized a SEO services package but of course the fees will vary accordingly based on the requirements of their client.

Ultimately, it may cost companies and business owners to pay extra to the SEO consultants to run and manage their SEO campaigns but in long term it will be more efficient and effective than managing the campaign themselves.

Customers are Attracted to and Impressed with the Great Design.

Every time I open the mail box, it is filled with a lot of brochures and flyers. I throw away those rough design on poor-quality paper first and read those with outstanding designs. The quality brochures will be took home for further reading, and they will usually survive for half to one year in my house. Finally, I tear pieces of paper from the brochure as a placemat when I have meals, so that the table will not get over dirty. It is very interesting I get used to reading the brochure content to kill time when I have meals alone.

 

I believe you have similar experience and you may buy one of the products or services listed in the brochure with great design. Not considering of the price or quality itself, the great design does much help to the business. So it is clear to see the importance and influence of the great design.

 

Design Matters A Lot!

 

Design is more than the paper you deliver to mail boxes and the content displayed on it, such as promotions, new arriving and events. It is a special way to advertise your brand with the unique and elegant design. When people got yellow letters on a blue background, I am sure most of you will think of IKEA. It is power of a successful design and branding, reminding customers of the brand as soon as they see the design.

 

With the development of e-commerce, online shopping shares a piece of pie in the market. Customers make a purchase referring to the images displayed on the shopping website and the reputation of the business. Therefore, the web design and photography play important roles in e-commerce.

 

Furthermore, social media is becoming a main way of marketing as well as the main platform to interact with customers. You cannot rely on the plain words to tell people about your products, services, discount information or coming events. It is necessary to show customers with an attractive advertisement with essential information and inspiring images.

 

Would anyone like to drop in the restaurant and ask for discount information? Or do people prefer to know the discount immediately when they glance at the advertisement in the window? The answer is window adverting, obviously. I am afraid you make a mistake if you think the price or the discount on advertisement is most important. People would not like to move on to the details when they see a poorly designed advertisement with ugly food image and pretty disorganized layout.

 

Bronze Media cares about design, as well as your success!

 

Great design counts for much in marketing and branding as it shows the taste and appreciation level of the business, as well as the sincerity and attraction to customers. Moreover, great design is part of successful branding, which makes people remember the product, food, service and the company. The business will be valued when people touch and see the brochures, which is the reason each company has to invest in designing.

 

A lot of designers are able to complete their tasks on time but they don’t ensure quality, because they have no concept of clients. Clients cannot be treated as a tool of making money, but as a partner in business to achieve both-win with you. Bronze Media is a professional company caring about clients and their success, instead of only looking at money.
