Types of website design and digital marketing pricing structures.
There are several types of website design and digital marketing pricing structures. We will go through each of them below.
Flat fee: A one-time fixed price for the entire project.
A flat fee pricing structure is when a designer or marketer charges a one-time fixed price for the entire project. This type of pricing structure is beneficial for both the client and the designer/marketer as it provides a clear and defined cost for the project, and it allows the client to budget accordingly. It also allows the designer/marketer to plan and execute the project efficiently, knowing the exact budget they have to work with.
For example, a website design project may have a flat fee of $10,000. This flat fee would cover the cost of creating a website, including the design, development, and testing phases. The client would pay $5,000 upfront and $5,000 once the project is completed, and the designer would be responsible for completing the project within that budget.
Another example could be a digital marketing campaign, where a flat fee of $5,000 is charged to create and execute a paid advertising campaign for a business. The flat fee would cover the cost of research, strategy, content creation, and execution of the campaign, as well as the budget paid for the advertising platform (e.g. Google or Meta) within the specified timeframe.
It’s important to note that when a project is quoted with a flat fee pricing structure, there may be an additional cost for any changes or additional work requested by the client that is not included in the original scope of the project.
Hourly rate: A rate charged by the hour for the designer’s or marketer’s time.
The hourly rate pricing structure is when a designer or marketer charges a rate for their time on an hourly basis. This type of pricing structure is beneficial for projects that have an undefined scope or that may require a significant amount of changes during the project. This allows the client to pay only for the time that is actually spent working on their project.
It’s important to note that an hourly rate pricing structure can be beneficial for projects with an undefined scope, but can also be less predictable for the client as the final cost of the project can vary depending on the number of hours spent on the project.
When we do a project on an hourly basis for a client we use a PMS (Project Management System) with time-tracking capabilities. This way the client is clear on how much time each task took. This is a fully transparent process. The PMS comes with iOS and Android apps so the client can see any updates and associated costs in real-time and on the go.
Retainer: A recurring fee paid to retain the services of a designer or marketer on an ongoing basis.
The retainer pricing structure is when a client pays a recurring fee to retain the services of a designer or marketer on an ongoing basis. This type of pricing structure is beneficial for businesses that require ongoing support and maintenance for their website or marketing campaigns.
For example, a business may retain the services of a website designer or developer for an ongoing monthly fee of $1,000. This fee would cover the cost of website updates, maintenance, and any additional changes to the website as needed. The designer or developer would be available to the client on a regular basis to address any issues or make any updates to the website.
It’s important to note that different agencies and freelancers may have their own unique pricing structures. It’s always a good idea to ask for a detailed breakdown of how they charge and what is included in their pricing package.
