In some cases these prices are indicative only, as we’ll often need to understand your specific needs better before being able to give you a firm price. If in doubt, please get in touch and let us know about your requirements.
Web site development
When looking at getting a web site developed, many businesses make a very basic mistake: they see this expenditure, simply, as a cost.
Whether you are a bricks-and-mortar establishment using your site purely to publicise information and stay in contact with customers; whether you are working from home and selling your services online; or whether you are an online store relying on your web site to be the engine that drives your business, your web site is not a cost, it is an investment that works for you.
An informational web site from Inveress starts from around $1,200 + GST for development; an online store will start from around $2,000 + GST, but this cost depends on the design and functionality required. Sites with more customised functionality are quoted individually. Additional services such as hosting or maintenance will be extra. Get in touch and we can give you a more precise quote.
Please note that some specialised site features (particularly those in online stores) will require annual renewal fees in order to continue receiving updates and developer support.
Web application development
The cost of web applications vary greatly and are completely dependent on the scale and complexity of your requirements. For that reason, we’re unable to provide a price guide.
Web site maintenance, content updates and other general work
Web site maintenance (function or design changes, or content updates) can be performed on demand and is costed at an hourly rate of $80 + GST. If you have changes made frequently, we can put you on to periodic invoicing and you will be billed every week or fortnight for any hours worked during that period. No work = no invoice.
WordPress software update management
Our WordPress software update management service ensures your WordPress framework and plugins are kept up to date, so that you aren’t running your site on outdated software (the leading cause of WordPress site hacks). This service is available as a subscription for $60/quarter + GST, or $90/quarter + GST if you have an online store or other specialised site.
Web site hosting
Our standard small business site hosting is available for only $120/year + GST and includes email services. This is suitable for most small business sites. Larger sites may require a higher level of hosting but this is something we can advise on, and you can always move to bigger hosting plans as your site grows.
We now also offer WordPress optimised hybrid hosting, in which email and website are hosted on separate servers. This allows your site to run on a server that is designed specifically for hosting WordPress sites. This hosting is recommended for online stores, as the additional speed it provides for your site often results in more sales. Hybrid hosting is available for $200/year + GST.
All hosting includes nightly backups, a 99.9% uptime guarantee and basic service management.
We can register and renew domains for a nominal fee of $10/year + GST.
General technical support
We can provide remote or on-site technical support for our clients. Remote support is charged at a rate of $80/hour + GST in 15-minute blocks, while on-site support is charged at $100/hour + GST in 15-minute blocks.
Corporate freelancing and consulting
Work for larger organisations is charged at $100/hr + GST. Blocks of time can be pre-purchased at reduced rates. Please get in touch with your requirements!
Small business hosting and domain renewals are invoiced annually; WordPress software maintenance contracts are invoiced quarterly; ad-hoc update work is invoiced upon completion or on a weekly or fortnightly period. Invoices are generally issued on 14 day terms. Payment plans are available on request for site development projects. Some work, such as large scale development or hosting, will be under individual invoicing terms.
