As quoted in an Entrepreneur article by Laurel Mintz:

Wix or WordPress can be a do-it-yourself website and can be free.

For a Wordpress site designed to look like your brand, it will usually cost you around $3,500 and add an additional $2,000 or more if you need a plugin shopping cart.

At least $15,000. The price will depend on functionality, automation and design, among other components.

Here at iFoundries, we pride ourselves to only develop GREAT websites for your business because we want you to get measurable results be it sales, leads, increased efficiency/productivity or even net promoter score.

Starting from 21 April 2015, Google’s mobile ranking factors will not only label your site as mobile-friendly, but will also use that to determine if your site should rank higher in the search results. So it is important that you have a mobile friendly website now.

Google has added a text label under the URL in the snippet that reads "Mobile-friendly" as the first part of the search result’s snippet. Google said it can be a “frustrating experience for our mobile searchers” to end up on a web page that is not mobile-friendly, thus they are adding the label to their mobile search results to communicate this to the searcher.

In addition to the mobile-friendly label, Google is experimenting with a new ranking algorithm for mobile friendly web sites.
