How Much Web Design Cost in Texas: Analyzing Hourly Rates in 4 Largest Cities

 

Texas has contributed to the American tech industry a lot in the past several years. Many tech giants such as Oracle or Tesla have moved into some of the largest cities of the state leaving behind California. Web Design Companies and Agencies also deserve special attention, as their number in Texas bloom. It may be because of the tax policies, or there could be some other reason behind it. But is web design more affordable in Texas? And if yes, in what city? That’s what we’ve also been trying to find out by breaking down the data into pieces. 

The research is based on TechBehemoths data that pulls together 700+ web design companies and agencies across all Texas cities. And the first thing to do was to identify how much web designers in Texas charge per hour. 

Web Design Prices in Dallas, TX

As of August 2022, TechBehemoths counts 155 web design companies in Dallas, and the information provided by them shows that 65.2% charge between $70-150/hour before taxes. At the same time, 11.6% of Dallas-based web design companies charge between $150-250/hour. At both ends of the chart, there are more companies that charge less than $30/hour in Dallas - 18.1% and only 1.3% charge more than $250/hour.

Wrapping things Up

The research led us to the conclusion that Austin is by far the most expensive city for web design services in Texas. It may be because numerous tech giants moved exactly to Austin, and branded the location as the “new silicon valley”. Houston comes second most expensive city in terms of web design as it charges $103/hour on average and San Antonio ends being the cheapest location in Texas where you can find web design services.
