An Honest Discussion About Our Pricing
Dec 08, 2016
We receive a lot of questions regarding pricing for our creative digital services, such as design, development and strategy. “How much does a website cost?” More often than not, the default answer is “it depends on the project”. This is the most common answer that any agency, company or freelancer will give. There are so many factors that go into developing a scope of work for a project and then figuring out the cost. At Avex, we do not have set prices for our web design, development, consulting or marketing services. Every project is very different. However, we wanted to be as transparent as possible with our future partners, and provide some answers to frequently asked questions, regarding pricing, types of projects and the size of projects we love to take on.
If you do not see answers to your questions below, please feel free to shoot us a note or give us a call.
What are Avex’s rates?
We do not have set rates because we charge on a per project basis. Some of the projects we take on will fall into a general range, but this will vary depending on the scope of work, deliverables and timeline.
An average project budget can be in the $1,500 – $20,000. For larger scale projects, budgets will range between $25,000 – $500,000+. Before we can provide an estimate and approach to your project, we ask a lot of questions and learn as much as possible about your business.
What type of projects does Avex take on?
There is no project too small (or too large) for us. We take on the projects we love working on and are passionate about. We also don’t want to tackle a project that we cannot lend value to. That being said, most of our projects include: UX Design, Interaction Design, Web Development, Web Design, Mobile App Design and Development, Digital Strategy, Digital Marketing, Content Creation, Videography, Photography, WordPress CMS and eCommerce.
How does Avex bill their partners?
All of our projects are quoted on a per-project basis. We do not bill hourly for project work. The only time we do bill hourly is for minor updates outside the scope of work, or for on-going updates and support. However, we do offer month to month retainer billing.
Our projects are normally broken up into 3-4 billing cycles over the course of the project. An example of this would be 30% / 30% / 30%/ 10% or 50%/50%. This will depend on the timeline and scope of work.
What are the hidden fees?
There are no hidden fees. We are upfront about our payment and do not bill our clients beyond our agreed upon budget, unless there is a request made outside of the scope of work. However, there are certain 3rd party fees that may or may not come along with creating a new digital project, such as: hosting, domain registration, stock photo licensing, font licensing or other 3rd party services. We always do our best to plan ahead and research these fees for you ahead of time.
Does Avex work with Start-ups?
Absolutely! We love working with start-ups and new brands. Building a company from the ground up is exactly the type of projects we LOVE to work on. Yes, we do work with many major brands and large global agencies, but we also partner with a lot of startups and small businesses.
