Sorry, we can't give a simple answer. The important thing is to look at the cost of the website in terms of your overall marketing budget. How much do you spend (should you spend?) on marketing and advertising anyway? If a website isn't going to help generate new business, retain existing business or reduce other expenses, then what is the point of having one? If it is going to generate business then how much is that extra business worth? A bad website can actually lose you business. A mediocre one will have some effect. But an excellent one may only cost you a little more, yet have many times the effect.
Yellow pages is typically £400+ per volume for 1/4 column. An 'enhanced listing' on yell.com costs £360 p.a. How much does a regular ad in your local newspaper cost? Or printing and distributing a few thousand leaflets? And remember, the website is there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is visible throughout your target market.
Some people will happily offer a fixed price of £x for a 5 page site or whatever. We can't give a firm price until we have looked at your business and decided what sort of website is best for you. Because we look at each customer individually and tailor our work to their needs, we probably won't be the cheapest quote you get: personal attention costs money. You might still be pleasantly surprised: our overheads are low, and we can be very flexible!
