Our website packages range from $ 1,800 – $ 2,500. However it really depends on what kind of website you need.
And unlike many designers, we post rates right up front. Since about 90% of our clients fit into one of those two packages, there’s no need to hide behind vague price points. Our website solutions are designed for the small business owner that doesn’t have the skills, time or even the desire to manage their own site. We will take point on your online marketing strategies. Offering directives and professional insights while treating your success as our success, we take pride in our transparent, reliable and responsive services. Hourly and consultation services are available in addition to complete website packages.
On average, we shoot for a six to eight week turnaround, less for smaller websites or re-design. But the duration of any project is mostly determined by the client. How how soon the content is ready and and your availability with feedback – all this affects the speed of completion.
Yes. WordPress is a great content management system that offers countless possibilities in addition to allowing customization to tailor very specific needs and above all these solutions can be very cost effective. Because WordPress is so popular there are many resources and professional help that can be contracted for specific tasks. The goal is to find the most effective features without being an overkill.
With that being said, in rare occasions I have used Wix and SquareSpace in the past, but these builders are very limited and allow very little room for growth.
Website hosting is a home, computer server, where the files that makes up your website needs to be saved so it can be online and viewed in the internet by others. The choice in the type of hosting and company that provides the service will affect the performance of your site, such as speed, security and down time for example. I have a few favorites I recommend to my clients. The cost starts at around $95 per year and up depending on the type of performance power needed.
Your domain name is typically your online brand. It’s your web-address. It’s how users and search engines will find your website. Finding an available domain name and registering it are part of what’s needed for a website plan. This is separate from website hosting, although many hosting providers offer the domain for free if you sign up for their service.
Absolutely. I work with clients everywhere. In fact, many of my contractors are located somewhere else.
A down payment of 50% is required prior to any project development. Once the design is approved and ultimately completed to your satisfaction, the project balance will be due.
There are a variety of strategies available to any business owner with the savvy to build and maintain a website. I include my recommendations and suggestions during and after our discovery process.
Search engine optimization is a critical element of any website. After all how good is a perfect website if nobody can find it? However, some business online strategies do not require their website to turn up in Google or other search engines search results, if they are aggressive in Social Media, need an online page just to support their print material or other few exceptions. Let’s talk about the most effective strategy for your website.
By definition, a purpose-driven website offers a healthy balance between aesthetics and function. Instead of making the user’s path an afterthought, purpose-driven design takes into account the intentional path that you want your users to take at the beginning of the website design process. If designed correctly, a purpose-driven website should provide value to both the business and the customers that use the website.
Yes. In the initial assessment I gather all the necessary needs and requirements for the project, including updating the website without any technical knowledge. In addition I assess the level of computer skills of my clients to implement a feature that matches their comfort level. I train and capture a video of the screen, with audio, during the training so it can be viewed anytime.
