Invest in Your Future
One of the first questions we are asked is how much do we charge to design a website – and it “all depends” upon the complexity and number of pages etc.
Like so many things there are a ton of variables that go into a well thought out design and in most cases it takes hours upon hours upon hours to accomplish a custom design that will represent your business in a professional manner. Even though there are Do-It-Yourself website tools … BUYER BEWARE. Many of the build your own website options come with a price that may be hidden!!
Some of the variables include the size of the website and incorporating your vision and what is visually appealing to others. A five page website is less of an investment than a twenty-five page website although your website can GROW with your business so it’s OK to start small! A website should be a part of your marketing program for your business and is NOT set-it and forget-it. It takes time and effort to drive viewers to your website and keeping your website FRESH is very important.
Base Price: Initial website layout including customized color palette / layout / navigation system. Starting at $800.00 and includes up to 5 pages. This cost does not include domain registration or hosting.
Creation of the the website pages using theme developed during the initial design phase includes placement of up to three (3) images per page in addition to content supplied to designer by client into page and shall be billed at $75.00 per page. Additional images placed within your website may incur additional charges if special editing is required.
It may seem “simple” to just use images provided by the client although before incorporating your images onto a page as a visual or incorporating your images into a slideshow those images many times a bit of TLC. Additional images shall be billed on a case-to-case basis although a good rule of thumb is the use of ten (10) additional images shall incur a one hour charge of $35.00.
Additional page features may incur further fees such as special graphic designs, full page gallery or specialized tools (plugins) embedded into website shall be billed at hourly rate of $35.00 per hour.
We do not up charge for cost of plugins if applicable. Included as needed including: • Social media links (if applicable) • Traffic / site traffic counter • Minimum of bi-monthly website backup via hosting server. • Page to page linking system • Image editing as needed up to three (3) images per page. • Setup of new temporary domain via Godaddy.com if necessary for design purposes. Additional features: We include two (2) hours telephone training to enable the website owner to make their own future website edits.
All additional training and/or maintenance services shall be billed on an hourly rate of $35.00 per hour. We calculate design costs by means of a base price and thereafter an estimate of how many pages and elements which will be incorporated into the website.
Each website is unique and built with your personal and industry needs in mind. After an initial FREE phone consultation and a website design survey is submitted, a written estimate shall be supplied via email typically within seven (7) days or less. We require a deposit based on the estimate to be submitted prior to any work to be performed after initial consultation. We will make every effort to meet your budgetary needs although all balances will be required to be paid in full no more than sixty (60) days from the start of the design.
