Singapore Website Design Prices – A Beginner’s Guide

singapore website design prices

Singapore website design prices – How does it add up these days and what will it cost you?

How are quotes estimated?
In general, most companies will quote by the hour in terms of labour cost and other overheads such as office rental, utilities, staff etc.

We apply the same rules above and usually have main two costing methods to determine what the final website design prices will be depending on the complexity of the project.

Method 1 – Pure estimation of hours needed.
Simple web design and development projects could be easily be estimated by an indication of how many hours it will require.

Method 2 – A base set of hours plus more for extras.
More complex web development with extra features, we do it at a fixed base cost plus number of additional billable hours it would take to get project completed.

Here’s a guide below but not limited in any way.
