Since startups often don't have the same budgets or resources as larger companies, they need to be smart with their web design and development efforts. Getting it right the first time around is key. You might not be able to hire multiple agencies to view different concepts, so it's important to do extensive research and to ensure that you're partnering with the right agency. When it comes to startup web design strategies, there are several key principles to consider. Here are some of the most important elements:
1. Leverage social proof
2. Keep it simple, prioritize the user experience, and don’t go overboard with “unique” or “flashy” design concepts
3. Make your calls-to-action noticeable, frequent & enticing
4. Invest in professional copywriting
5. Perform competitor research
6. Use the power of “testimonial videos” and/or “explainer videos”
7. Optimize your website for Google (SEO)
8. Maximize site speed

Another vital web design tip for startups is to not dump your entire budget into the initial design and development of the website. Keep in mind that there will be ongoing costs for hosting and routine maintenance of the site, but you might also want to make ongoing changes to test and maximize the conversion rate or SEO results of the site.
You might also want to invest in other marketing efforts that drive more traffic to your site, such as Google ads, social media, backlinks (to improve SEO), email marketing, etc. Your website is an important piece of your marketing budget, but as a startup, you need to avoid overspending and prioritize all of the different elements of your marketing strategy.
The price for a startup website ranges dramatically and depends on a variety of factors related to the size and complexity of your desired website. However, it also largely depends on the caliber of the agency. Your website is an important investment and your agency's ability to produce traffic and conversions is what matters most. For this reason, you'll find that some agencies will charge $1,000 while others will charge $1,000,000 for the exact same project. This industry has a massive price range. We highly recommend researching and interviewing several agencies to make sure that you find the right partnership. As for us, our pricing starts at $25,000 and increases based on the size and complexity of the project.
