Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization, copywriting, and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs and not what we think the market will tolerate.
We have a specific design style, so you need to make sure what we consider to be beautiful fits within your thinking as well. If it doesn’t, do consider us for your project. There are oodles and oodles of WordPress consultants and designers available and you will find one who is a fit if you look.
Of course! We have WordPress coders who are experts at the Genesis Framework from StudioPress and we love helping people with WordPress installation, theme configurations, customizations, and plugin support. Whether you bought one of our premium WordPress themes or a StudioPress theme, we can help.
Company check and/or personal check are accepted. All projects require a down payment of 50% to start.
This is hard to say, as it varies greatly by client. A custom microsite can take as little as four weeks and a large, complex B2B website can take three months. Similar to costing, the timeframe for implementation varies on complexity and the number of web pages and blog posts. In most cases, we are waiting on the client and the client is not waiting on us.
Absolutely not. If the client is not a good fit, the opportunity is not quoted. Creating a new website is a big endeavor, so the website designer and their client need to have synergies for the project to launch successfully. The same is true for customizations of existing themes. If we don’t feel that we’re a good fit or that WordPress isn’t a good fit, we’ll quickly tell you so.
Small to mid-market B2B or B2B companies that have limited internal marketing resources and/or who need their website to be designed around organic SEO. We differentiates itself from other website design companies by providing website design that is completely integrated with traditional and online marketing best practices. With our all inclusive packages, no design work begins until a full marketing analysis is completed. We relax these rules for our design only projects, but we still want to know everything about you so we can build the perfect website.
All-inclusive web design projects include SEO, guidance in the development of the marketing message and content, as well as input of the final website copy. The project is designed around helping clients create an online marketing presence that encourages both targeted traffic and conversions.
WordPress runs best on a Linux server with PHP 5 capabilities. Most hosting companies will easily support these requirements. If you have any concern on your hosting company’s support options, we are happy to investigate your existing hosting package and provide assistance with new hosting if needed.
The beauty of WordPress is the ease of use it provides. Each all inclusive website design project will include one hour of WordPress training, so most clients are more than capable of updating and adding website pages as needed. Since some clients do not want to maintain their own websites, We offer ongoing maintenance. If you want training and you didn’t purchase an all inclusive package, we’re happy to provide training at our standard hourly rate.
There are a number of websites that offer affordable stock images for use in website design projects. Most images cost less than twnety dollars per high-resolution image. We typically recommend iStockPhoto.com and BigStockPhoto.com. If you like one of our photos or our clients’ photos, it is safe to assume it was purchased at one of these websites.
All of our websites are designed around Google’s guidelines for organic SEO. In addition to having a search engine friendly website, we will create a sitemap.xml file and submit it to Google and Bing upon launch if you’ve purchased an all inclusive package. We will also create a 301 redirect file to help the search engines and visitors find the new pages based on the older pages that are already indexed.
Absolutely. There are sample testimonials on our website for review. References can be provided prior to signing contracts. As a courtesy to existing clients and to limit unnecessary phone calls, references are not provided until we are the chosen website designer.
We will provide one hour of free training with each all inclusive web design project. Additional hours are available at an hourly rate. In addition, the WordPress community is vast and there are a wide range of books, online tutorials, and classes available to help new users learn WordPress.
