There are 4 levers for every project.
- Scope - what the project includes
- Time - how long it will take to deliver
- Quality - aesthetics, scalability, longevity
- Cost - the budget / investment required
We'd like you to order these 4 items by priority in your own mind before hopping on a call with us.
Typically it takes Thrive two conversations to give you an exact cost for your project.
While we can't give you an exact price for your project until we get on the phone, our pricing for website projects starts at:
website pricing faqs.
There is a wide range of what could be considered a basic or simple website.
It takes a lot of effort and skill to make something that is usable and compelling for a specific audience.
The cost of a website has as much to do with what you are building as it does with when you need it by and if you want the project to meet your company goals.
It's like any other project in the world.. the factors are time, cost, scope, and quality.

Thrive strives to have the best process and communication of any Seattle web design agency.
A solid discovery process will minimize any changes to scope but priorities can shift during the middle of a project.
New functionality, design, and content not outlined in the agreement we initially come up with will usually require changes to the budget and timeline.
Don't worry, we'll agree on any changes to the budget & timeline before the additional work commences.
