How much do you charge for web design?
I estimate the cost of each project individually, based on the anticipated amount of time that it will take. To get a general idea of the cost, you can use our general estimation tool here.
How long will my project take?
It really depends on the details involved. For web design project, I typically provide a detailed timeline for you at the start of the project. The average site takes 3-8 weeks to complete. However, your project could take as little as 2 weeks to many months depending on the project’s complexity, specifications, and the time it takes to receive all client input, content, approvals and our current design schedule for other clients.
Do we need to meet?
If you are located nearby, we certainly can. However, we can easily communicate and see your project through using email, phone and screencasts.
When and how do I pay for my website project?
Web design projects require a fifty-percent deposit plus domain registration fees (if applicable) and the remaining balance plus the first month’s hosting fees immediately prior to launch. All payments may be made in cash, check, money order or by credit/debit card.
Do you offer a discount for multiple- site purchase?
Yes. You may receive up to 15% off the total cost of all projects upon signing of contract.
How much do you charge to register a domain name? Can I purchase my own domain?
I charge $15 for each domain registration. Clients may purchase their own domains, but they must provide administrative access to domain nameserver (DNS) entries.
Do I need any special hardware or software to edit my website?
No. Our websites are developed with a web-based content management system (self-hosted WordPress) that allows users to easily add and edit new content with any popular browser anywhere in the world. I make it easy to use, quite similar to writing a Word document. Video tutorials are provided to get up up to speed & using your site quickly.
Do you offer maintenance services?
Although our sites are designed to allow non-technical users to update and maintain their own sites, I do offer monthly maintenance contracts starting at $90/month.
How much traffic can I expect on my website? Will search engines be able to find my site?
I cannot guarantee a specific amount of traffic or search engine ranking. However, our code is search-engine optimized and your site will be visible to search engines. I are very knowledgeable about best practices for search engine marketing and optimization. I can offer you direction for additional steps you can take on your own to improve your ranking — in addition to the complimentary optimization services that come with all design projects. I also offer social media impact package that is useful for brick and mortar business who want to stand out from other local businesses online.
Can I accept payments on my website? Can I sell products in an online store?
I can develop your website to do either or both. However, e-commerce sites require premium hosting.
