A price range?

Before giving you an approximate cost, you will be asked to fill out a quote request with as much detail as possible in order to get a more accurate evaluation. It is preferable to know the different phases concerning your web project. This article aims to answer that need.

Should you prepare a budget for your website?

To avoid unpleasant surprises, you should prepare a budget for your project. By knowing the steps from design to deployment, you will be able to better complete the request for proposals and get an idea of the amount you will have to pay. Then, if you are satisfied with the evaluation provided in the quote, we can move on to the specifications where we will go into more detail about your needs to provide you with a more accurate evaluation of your project.

What is the scope of work?

It is important to complete a scope of work in order to avoid wasting time or money by going back over inaccurate or misinterpreted elements in the initial estimate. This way, the mandate will be clear and precise. It will also be easier to establish deadlines and respect schedules. Make sure you understand your contract before you sign. In the specifications, you will find the following:


  • the agent (your contact information)
  • the mandate (the website model, the options chosen, etc.)
  • the timeline
  • the signatures of the parties

If you add services such as maintenance, advertising, content creation or web hosting, these services will be billed separately (if they were not part of the specifications).

What are the steps to develop your web project?


Identify and analyze the needs

We identify the needs that will allow us to fill the specifications with greater precision than the initial estimate.

Define potential solutions and identify the chosen solution

The deliverable of this step is the specifications which will also contain the detailed evaluation. Once the contracts are signed and the first payment is made, we can start the process with the established web solution.

Computer graphics (logo, etc.)

We offer a service to make a logo to your image.

Design of the model for your website

When you are satisfied with your logo, our designer will be inspired to design the model of your website. This will be sent to you in the format of your choice so that you can approve it before moving on to the next step. A logo and a perfectly matched mock-up will allow you to create a distinctive brand image. 

Integration and programming

Once you have approved the layout, we will integrate it into the website design with the help of our integration analysts. Afterwards, we will create a development environment that you can access to give you an idea of the project's progress online. The integration of the model also consists of providing better interactivity and animation. Our "Back-end" programmers will take care of the programming of the website functionalities such as

  • registering or logging in a user account
  • adding products to the shopping cart
  • the various forms
  • the creation of a newsletter
  • making the website multilingual
  • etc.

  This is the step that will take the most time in the project with the content entry.

Adding your content

If you want to save money and time in the project, it is especially at this stage. If you own the content, it will save a lot of time. Otherwise, our agency will be happy to assist you in the development of your content and optimize it for SEO. Thereafter, you will have the opportunity to manage it via our content manager "Dragon CMS". Our CMS offers you maximum flexibility in administration and a solid, secure and fast foundation for your website. If you want to know more about content management systems, we suggest you take a look at this link. 

Verification and deployment of your site

We take the time to verify the quality of your content with you. Then if you approve, we will deploy your site online following the final payment.

Do you need advertising?

You should budget for it. If you want to have advertising on social networks or paid referencing, you can always do it by yourself, but you may lose money if the targeting is not well defined. In order to have a good ROI (return on investment) in your advertising campaigns, we strongly recommend you to do business with our agency since we would already be at the heart of your web project. With the design of your website, we will already know your products and services that you offer.

Where do you plan to host your site?

You can always find low-cost hosting sites all over the world, however, you will have to check if you have the right to host your clients' content on non-Canadian servers. We can host you on our Canadian green servers. In terms of technical requirements, you must ensure that you have the necessary disk space, sufficient RAM and adequate bandwidth. Hosting costs may vary depending on the size of your website and its traffic.


If we summarize everything, it is possible to give a price when we have established a specification with detailed needs.
