Costs for building a website
For school, I need to make a businessplan for a new concept. This concept needs a website and I was wondering how much building this website would cost.

The concept: a map/gps where all accomodationpossibilities are shown, and if you click on one, a pup-up comes up that shows basic information about the accomodation. You can also klik on the pop-up, which opens a webpage with the full information about the hotel/camping/....

I think it's a good idea to use google maps for the website.

Hi Claire,

Thank you for the question.

We wouldn't be able to give you cost for the build as all our websites are bespoke to the business.

But from what you have listed above, your describing similar functionality to 'Airbnb' with an integration of Google Maps.

I hope this information helps Claire.

Hi Claire, you're right in thinking about using Google Maps, this would be the best and most cost effective solution. Google maps hold all of the GPS information you would need for the project, you just have to find the right web developer to write the appropriate scripts to run the queries you need to interrogate the Google API to display the correct map information.....or something like that, I'm not a developer. So if a developer can work out how much time it would take, then cost this project from there. I'm not a developer but estimate the daily rate to be around £250 then times that by a few days of work? You'd have to budget for a designer as well, you want the website shell to look branded and aesthetically pleasing - that's where we would come in :)

Hi Claire,

Building such a website would cost you roughly £500 as a good starting point. This would give you the functionality you need as well as the ability to expand the business concept in the future if need be.

Hi Claire,

It is difficult to quote without seeing a full outline for the business, however, it sounds like you are looking for something similar to AirB&B

Should you have an outline to forward I would be in a position to give you a breakdown of costs once I know full functionality required.

Hi Claire,

Google Maps have an API integrations (free and paid options). Depending on what you need there are different APIs - e.g. The Google Maps JavaScript API allows you to customize maps with your own content and imagery.

You can see the full list of Google Maps APIs here:

Adeo Group have worked on a similar project for the company MotoGoLoco which provide motorcycle routes. You can see it here:

For more information please feel free to contact us.

It's Rob from Nott Studios.

Based on your description, website like that could be done for about £800, however, there are a lot of questions which need to be answered, and depending on those answers, the price may go up.

1) Would it require a booking system?
2) Would you like to update the website yourself or would you like somebody to do it for you?
3) Is it just a demo page or does it need to be full product, ready to use?
4) What would be the timeline and deadlines?
5) Do you have hosting and domain name?
6) How about branding? Does it already exist or would it need to be created?
7) I'm assuming web design company would be asked to design the website as well?

Like any website, both sides need to fully understand what is the purpose of it. Lot's of people ask us to design websites, yet they don't know what they want on it, and what message it should convey. Developing a successful website takes a lot thought from both sides, you as a client and us as people implementing it.

Hi Claire,

its difficult to estimate projects until a fuller brief but for what you are looking to achieve could be done for about £750 plus design on top.

Hey Claire!

The website that you're looking to build sounds rather simple and possible without and bespoke technology being put into place. Which would definitely save on cost.

Google maps can be posted, and allow custom markers placed on to for the particular map on your particular page. Here's an example of this technology being used :

All in all, if you're using existing technologies, the associated quote should not be high at all.
