This is my first post on SN. My name is Riccardo and I live in Switzerland.
I have been considering opening my startup for quite a while and now I'm closer than ever.
I am going over all the potential sources of income and expenditures, however I struggle to forecast the potential web development costs (close to reality!).
I hope you can help me with this. The idea is to create something similar to TripAdvisor, but in a different industry/topic.
The website I want to work on would require:
- Locations list
- Geotagged pictures (will be provided)
- content categorization
- business listings
- FB connect
- Upload your picture
Do you have any idea how I could reasonably forcast the cost of such a website?
Obviously I would need to add design on top of that, but that's a different matter I guess.
Is it worth it to get in touch with any "full-spectrum" agency that might take care of both development and design? Or is it generally more expensive?
Thank you very much in advance!
