Pricing web projects is challenging. There are so many variables, technology is always changing and every client’s needs are unique. Because of this, every project we undertake requires initial investigation. We will look and listen very closely to get a clear understanding of where every client has been, where they are and where they want to go. In the end, we will be able to provide a clear recommendation which we believe will address the issues at hand in the most appropriate and realistic way possible.

This is why we don’t have anything on our site which can answer the question “How much will my project cost?”. Every situation is so different that we have to discuss everything in detail. If we don’t, it is likely that we will not deliver in the end an optimal solution to the problems we need to solve.

However, for those who are really interested in getting a better sense of what they should expect in terms of cost when working with an agency like Real Big Marketing, we’ve put together the following information. It is important first to note though that this information is simply a guide and not an estimate.

Project Pricing Guide

Less than $1,000

This is a modest budget but we can still work together. You can expect us to provide basic consulting and even some basic project discovery to help ensure you make informed decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

If you’d simply like some advice, feel free to schedule a call so we can learn more about what you need help with and truly add value.

$1,000 to $5,000

This budget range is great for things like extensive consulting, detailed discovery phases and very small projects. These projects can include things like basic programming tasks, design phases, code reviews and migrations.

$5,000 to $10,000

With a budget over $5k, you can expect us to be able to help you with some full projects that have a limited scope such as the development of a basic website or sometimes a new robust feature to add to an existing website.

$10,000 to $20,000

In this budget range, we are able to take on fairly sophisticated, complete projects. You can expect us to create a robust website complete with some unique features.

$20,000 to $50,000

You can expect in this budget range to work with us on a complex, custom project which could span multiple phases. Large websites with unique feature requirements, many users and a high volume of content will typically fall within this range.


For budgets in the high five figure range you can expect to engage us for multiple large projects. It is likely that we will be working together in an ongoing capacity and will be helping you develop robust solutions which set you apart as a leader in your industry.


Payment methods

When payment is due, we will email an invoice to the assigned billing department. We prefer payment by check but in some cases will accept payment by credit card.

Payment Schedule

For most projects, we will invoice multiple times. For short projects, we will schedule a payment to start and another payment upon completion. For projects that last several months, typically we will schedule payments for each month. These payments are also usually timed with the completion of project deliverables.
