New Website

I am considering starting a website similar to trip advisor.

What would be the cost of a site like this and would anyone be interested in doing it for me?

Thanks

Daniel

Customised back end scripts, so probably no less than 2000 and probably nearer 5000

Daniel,

The previous msg was correct on the price. Trip advisor have a few full time web developers too.

Email me if you would like any other questions answered on this topic.

Hmm it would actually cost alot more then that im afraid, its the sort of website I don't believe one person could do, so even not talking about the actual build, to employ staff etc would make the cost escalate..

I was only quoting the build cost for the code!
Not even including operating or any other costs, and there would be quite a lot as already mentoned...
Servers and human resources

Sorry if I wasnt clear but I was talking about the cost of the website!! 5k wouldnt be enough for a site of that scale!

It's quite a simple backend website though, well capable of being constructed and completed within 50 hours / 5000
Yes, you are reading that correctly, that works out at 100 per hour

Yeah that would give the site a development time of around a week and a half at 6 hours a day. Doesn't seem right to me either.

Wikipedia re-created in a fortnight? BBC in a week?

I partly agree with Brett on this one. I've just had a 2 min look over trip advisor and there is a huge amount of functionality there. As the only web developer in our company i would be able to create something like this but we would charge a lot more than the 5000 mark. I'd expect a team of developers to take at least a month to create the site.

I would recommend a budget of at least 15k for a site pretty much identical to trip advisor.

Then again wikipedia would take me 20 mins to create and cost a fiver

Good Luck

hiya

id say this project would cost around 12k, possible under it.

we have 10 developers who could all work on this and get it done within a couple of weeks.

email me at jamie@cre8tive-solutions.com to discuss further.

I agree with all above.

We are specialist coders and developers so can certainly help to achieve the desired backend functionality.

Cheers
