Compare Web Design Costs 2016 – 2017

web designer

The year of 2016 marked a new high in web design pricing. In fact if you were around in the 90’s era of web design, you might be familiar with prices around $150 or $300 for a pretty decent site. Today’s custom web design prices can range anywhere from a low end of $5,000 to as much as $500,000 or so. However this particular article is going to compare web design prices from 2016 into the expected pricing of 2017.

Comparison of Calculators

The best way to find out what web design costs is through a website cost calculator. You can usually find these by doing a simple Google search. For some websites you can check the date of the copyright on the bottom of the page to determine if the site has been updated, and whether or not their calculator is up to date. This is how you compare pricing throughout the years!

Some advanced cost calculators are automatically updated by being connected up with some kind of API that allows them to be in sync with inflation etc. While other cost calculators are mostly just manually updated by someone who runs the website (such is the case with Franklin Web Design).

Having gone through over 2,000 web design cost calculators, we have determined what we believe will be the rates of web design for 2017. Figuring this out meant taking the average price of a website and comparing it to the rate of growth for the industry. This wasn’t by any means an easy task. In fact, we went through several math experts who were able to help us figure this out!

The Expectation for 2017

There’s an unbelievable growth rate in the web design industry. While some industries average a growth rate of about 2.5% on an annual basis, web design maintains a staggering growth rate of 18% annually. It’s projected to be one of the most secure and lucrative industries in the year 2020.

Web design pricing has kept up with the growth rate of the industry and has increased at an average rate of 8% per year. With inflation at approximately 3.4% in 2015, you can see that web design is increasing in competition, increasing in delivery and increasing in price. The demand is so high!

With that being said, let’s take a look at some figures. The average rate of web design is about $60 – $200 per hour. That equates to about $5,000 per website. An 8% increase in price comes out to about a $400 increase in 2017. This might not seem like a lot, but just wait a minute.

When you take into account that the industry is booming at an 18% rate, you have to account for overcoming competition, advertising costs, maintenance costs, hiring costs etc. Web designers who once charged $200 per hour are now charging about $216 – $230 per hour. All these being taken into account would likely raise the cost of web design to approximately $5,600 for a website in 2017.

The Industry Evidence for Equity Returns

This post looks at the evidence of historical returns from the UK stock market. In particular, it focuses on the one study that is frequently used by the industry: The Barclays Equity Gilt Study.
“In the long term, stocks produce attractive returns: They may fluctuate in the shod term … but historically, they yield an investment return of about 10%.”

Get Rich Slowly 

Virtually all information published by the finance industry encouraging you to invest makes claims about projected returns from investing in the stock market in the long term. As the example on the previous page, these are usually in absolute returns – i.e., you will gain X% a year – although sometimes they are comparative, i.e., how much more you would have gained versus just holding cash, the so-called “risk-free return.”

The industry benchmark If you look into the footnotes of these (UK) websites and publications, you will notice many points to the Barclays Equity Gilt Study? This is an annual publication issued by Barclays Capital which summarizes data since 1899 on the returns on UK equities (ie, FTSE shares) and “cash”.4 

Annual Real Returns on Equities and Cash (after inflation) 1899-2011 The latest published data covering the last 112 years shows that equities have returned nearly 5% a year above that of the rate of inflation. In contrast, holding cash has beaten inflation by only around 1%.
Take care with that word “cash”. Normally you’d expect it to mean the returns and interest you get from putting your money in a bank or building society account. However, as we’ll see later, it is actually referring to the returns from something called Treasury bills, which are issued by the government.

Annual fund charges

Based on data from:”Barclays Equity Gilt Study 2012″

This data is quite interesting and not what I expected to see. First, it shows that for nearly 90 years (1900-1990), the UK share index had effectively gone nowhere at all, once you strip out inflation. This clearly demonstrates, over that period, the benefits of owning shares were driven mainly by the dividends and the compound interest on them (after you take out inflation).

The other fascinating aspect of the above chart is the cycles it illustrates. Not only do you see the normal business cycle of 5-8 years, which gives the picture a very jagged appearance, but it clearly exhibits a longer-term wave.

These so-called secular bull and bear market periods for the index typically last around 15-16 years each, with the total down/up cycle always lasting 30-32 years. In 2012, we are 12 years into a secular bear market that started in 2000.

There is an adage, coined by Mark Twain, that “history never repeats itself, but it does rhyme”. Given this, it is quite possible that the current secular bear market (red) on the FTSE will put in a new, possibly final, low at some point between now and 2014 before turning to a new secular bull market (ie, changes to upward and green). The implications of this will be discussed further in next blog post

The loads-a-money era The last clear fact from the chart is that the period from 1982 to 1999 was strange from a historical perspective. The size of the increases in the index during this period were unusual. For the first time since the previous century, the returns exceeded those created by just dividends and inflation. The average real growth per annum (including dividends) over that time was 13.2% pa. In contrast, for the whole period from 1899 to 1981, the average return was just 4% pa.

So what caused the unusual rise of equity assets in the 1980s and 1990s? My personal view is that a key reason goes back to August 15th 1971, when President Nixon unlinked the dollar peg from gold.
This heralded the start of an era of so-called fiat currenciA in which it was possible for the finance industry to create infinite money – which they then used, among other things, to invest in shares.

The successful hedge fund manager Ray Dalio argues the rise seen during the 1980s and 1990s is a function of a much longer-term “debt cycle.” It lasts approximately double the 32-year secular bull/bear cycle and can be between 50-75 years. It is his view this will mean that economy is likely to suffer a prolonged period of deleveraging over the next decade as this cycle is worked through it.

Cetonas de Frambuesa Video

Here at Nreminder we’re always looking to provide you with the best information on Cumberland County and what’s going on in the local area. We had a great response from the Cumberland County Fair where the raspberry ketone display that gave out some free samples did extremely well. As a result, they ended up opening up a store which we had mentioned about before.

Now, we just wanted to share this quick video that they have just released that we feel like it would really help to explain what it is exactly that they do. Cetonas de frambuesa are not all that complicated but there’s a nice whiteboard video here showing exactly how they work and where you can find more information about how they can help you to achieve your goals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqDpP5nH1iU

The cetonas de frambuesa store has been doing very well as many people in Cumberland County are getting more and more into fitness. It’s great to see the citizens getting more in shape as a team or more people jogging and more gyms popping up. Also, there is some construction on several health food stores. This trend toward health and fitness comes as a welcome surprise to our citizens in Cumberland County and we are happy to support this movement to better health.

Cumberland County Health Fair Friday, May 13, 2016

Cumberland County is going to be having a health fair. You won’t want to miss this event! There will be information sessions, free consultation with nutritionists, free samples, and much more. Friday, May 13th, 2016 we will be having the Cumberland County Annual Health Fair at the Timber Meadows Lake park campgrounds. The event will be from 9 am until 4 pm.

Here is the description of the events.

Dr Baird Health Consultation

There will be a tent with a nutritionist, a qualified professional that specializes in health and nutritional information, will be conducting free health consultations. Here, Dr. Baird will be helping people in the community to improve their lives with healthier foods and lifestyle decisions. There are many facets to fitness and health. For this reason he is donating his time to the community so that those that he can see can get in-depth help with their health problems.

Although supplements like Bajar de Peso, among others, can help health is not just a result of a supplement or something that you take every once in awhile. Although those products can help, what really affect your health are the things you do every day. This makes up your overall lifestyle. Things like what you eat on a regular basis, your health habits such as exercising, whether you smoke or not, how much physical activity you get, and many other factors will greatly influence your overall level of healthiness. The things that you do every day are the things that matter the most. Come by for a free consultation with Dr. Baird and you can learn the best practices for yourself.

Macquarie University Sport & Aquatic Centre

Cetonas de Frambuesa Free Samples

Another tent will have free samples of raspberry ketones. You can come by and try this great tasting weight loss supplement that will not only help you lose weight, but we’ll also be a great treat for you to eat throughout the day. Many people have a hard time losing weight because they don’t like the taste of what they are eating. This can make dieting and weight loss difficult. However, raspberry ketones can be a delicious supplementation to your diet. Raspberry ketones are both delicious and nutritious. Ketones found in raspberry will help to accelerate your metabolism and burn fat while you are enjoying the benefits of the great taste. Cetonas de Frambuesa will be offering free samples on Friday all day so come out and see us to get yours while supplies last. To connect with them socially and see what other events they are taking part in check out their Academia and WordPress or Cetonas Weebly.

In case it rains, the tents are all covered so the event will continue even if there is rain. But, if there is lightning we may have to postpone it until another day.

These are just a few of the attractions that will be at the Cumberland County annual health fair this year. If you have any questions or would like more information on setting up your own tent, please contact our administrative staff using the contact form. If you have any questions about the event itself please speak to Joshua in the Event Planning Department. We are all looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
