Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a website?
The cost of a website entirely depends on the scope of the proposed undertaking. In general, a small business website will cost in the range of $2,500 - $15,000, depending largely on what features, functionality, and customisation is required to achieve your outcomes. See our 'Website Development' page for site options to help you work out exactly what you need for your site. Click here
How can I save money when building a website?
Having a site based on a content management system such as Joomla gives you the option of adding content to the site yourself, without requiring a lot of web development skills. If you are able to prepare images to the appropriate size and quality using a graphics program, and if you are prepared to enter the text and layout the images for your pages, you will save many hours of work that is otherwise undertaken by your site developer. At ExperienceMedia, we are happy to help you learn the skills to manage your own site content. Call or email us today and let's talk about it.

Having spent several decades in audio production, we can offer our clientelle a professional audio service without big studio prices.
