What is the right way to put a pricing list on your company website - (Mobile App Development Services)?
Hello all, one of my friends is a SEO specialist. He asked me to put our company's pricing plans on our website. He suggested, as we are a start-up, it will help to boost customer interaction.
I am confused on how to come up with pricing packages, as we are charging per hour charges or per project quote. I have checked many websites in our same domain (mobile app development) and it seems nobody is putting the pricing list on their website.
Can you please suggest the right way to put pricing plans on your website? Thank you.
When I go to a web site looking for solutions to a business problem or need there are four important things to me. One is that I want to see that what that web site offers may be in line with what my needs are. The second factor is that I want an idea of what it will cost me so that I have an idea if the solution they offer is within my budget. The third factor is that I want to be able to find the information I am looking for quickly. If I can find it quickly then I may spend a lot of time on that web site looking for more details about the services or products they provide, otherwise I want to move on to someone else's web site in the hopes of finding what I am looking for. The fourth factor is that I don't want to have to register or give my information to find the information I want.
I am not in the services business. I offer products on my web site. I have a handful of competitors and am one of the few and perhaps the only current one that has complete pricing on my web site. I have done this for years and do not regret it a bit. I think it has been a big plus for me. The only problem I have with it is my overseas customers who have to incorporate shipping costs that can be very high and they may not be happy that I have my prices on my web site. Consequently I think if you can add pricing on your web site it will be a plus for you.
It is more difficult to publish prices when you charge by the hour. You could post some of your completed jobs and what the charge was for doing them. You could also consider posting your hourly rate or some projected costs per size of job.
Would like to share what we do: We're a start-up too and and have not put up the pricing plans on our website. Rather we have put up the modes of customer engagement .. something like 1. One-off Fixed Price 2. Time and material. On request, we email the cost details to the clients for the second mode. However, for the first mode, we need them to specify their requirement details so that we can produce the best possible scope and pricing for them which is one-off.
