As an entry-level IT technician in Toronto, I know how difficult it can be to pay for a quality website. I’d never dream of spending $500 or more on a website, but I needed a new one for my small business. Thankfully, the price of web design has dropped dramatically over the past 20 years. Back then, web designers worked with basic HTML editors, and even a small 5 page informational site took several hours to complete. With the development of website builders and premium themes, the price of a website has dropped considerably.

To find an affordable web design company, you should first consider all options. Agencies are the most expensive option, while freelancers have lower overhead. Be careful of hiring contractors as they may not have the proper training or experience to provide quality work. You should look at portfolios and contact former clients. If a web design company doesn’t have a portfolio, don’t hire them. If you can’t find a freelancer in your area, you may be able to hire someone on Fiverr or Upwork, or try hiring a company that employs people from other countries.
Using affordable web design doesn’t mean cheap. Instead, it means achieving your objectives for the least amount of money. You don’t want to pay the most expensive web design, only to have it fail miserably. In the end, you may end up spending more money than you originally expected. It’s better to state your goals up front, and target your site accordingly. The best web design companies will do the work for you, while also keeping your budget in mind.
