Quality Work at Great Prices - When You Are Ready for a Professional
How Does It Work?
People often ask, "How much does it cost to have a
website?" Well answering that is like asking, "How
much does it cost to go out to eat?" It depends on
where you go and what you order!
How much time do you have? How valuable is your
time? If you have hours and hours of time to try and
figure out quality web design for yourself, you maybe
can find something "a little bit cheaper" as a way to
go. In the long run though, the price difference saved
is not usually that much, and you end up still looking
for help or spend hours you did not plan on.
Do you just want a boxy make shift web site? Then
you can go cheap. You can try the "Do It Yourself"
kind. But the truth is that someone else has
something quite similar and your time to learn it
(which will be hours I promise) will take quite a bit of
your valuable time.
Plus you have to pay for it all over again if it does not
work! We will custom design your site with YOU in
mind - your pictures, your text, your theme and your
style. If you don't know, we have lots of ideas!
Our work with your input will reflect your
individuality and works with you to promote your
offerings! It's just a matter of how professional you
want it to be. Our experience in this area shows.
Maybe you started with one of those programs and
messed it up. We can fix it for you!
We can enhance and place your text and pictures and
design it for the best possible look to make it unique
to just you! You aren't stuck in their limited boxes. If
you want it done right with the professional touch and
want to have someone on your side with a knowledge
base of how the web really works, we can do that and
save you both time and money.
Our rates are reasonable; our work is good. Many
hours have gone into classes and study to learn these
skills. Because we can do hard code html, we know
what is going on "behind the scenes" on the page.
Our goal is to make you proud of your website. We
want your guests to find your site an easy and
enjoyable place to come visit and then desire to come
People often worry about update costs. Simple text
updates or simple picture swaps are cheap. Most
spend much less than $30-40 a year on that. We do
not try to make that difficult or expensive for you. We
charge for the time and skill it takes to accomplish all

Here is what you need to know.
There are three parts to a website: your domain name, the server that hosts your site,
and the design work (code files).
STEP 1: You must choose and purchase a domain name. YourOwnDomainName.com - $15
per year - assuming that it is available. This also includes all the management fees that
go with that. (For names that end with .com, .net, .org, .us, .info, .name, .ws, .biz)
STEP 2: Once you have a domain name, you must rent space on the internet to host your
website files under your registered domain name on a server. We offer Reliable Web
Hosting For One Year - $45.00 (That is less than $4.00 per month which is a great price,
which includes WebMail access to your mail from any online computer anywhere (or on
your computer), with up to 15 different email addresses @Your-Domain-Name.com).
Our large web host system has a 99%+ uptime with a back up system for your hosted
work. We prefer to use our own hosting system for many reasons. We know it, we trust
it, and we get good and fast support! If we must use another, we will have to assess its
quality and the learning skill curve. We will try to work with you for your best cost to
NOTE: We must secure your web host server in advance to upload your pages and picture
files to your site space there. This $45 fee will also be your renewal fee each year along
with your domain name. If you just want a quick mini-site, a small site with mostly text
pages only, that pricing can also be discussed.
We do not put any known or unknown ads on your site, unless you are the one requesting
them there. If you want to manage some of your content for updates, we can link a blog
to your main site so you can do that through the blog. This works well for many people.
STEP 3: Then you must have your web page designed. A simple 1 page site professionally
designed starts at $100. These are called a "business card" site that features your
company name, product picture and generous description attractively styled, with your
contact information. And it could include a feed back form. People who want a personal
intro page to a marketing site find these ideal. We can include a counter on that as well
to help you determine the visitors you are getting.
Forms are considered an extended feature because of the formatting time involved, but
are quite reasonable. A simple 2-3 page website is approximately $200-250 depending
upon what is on it. A 4- 7 web page site is around $300-350.
MANY other web design companies charge much more, often starting at $700. We save
you time, frustration and research hassles and deliver you a professional website you can
be proud of.
Included in this pricing we offer is your supplied keywords coded in for the search
engines, and will include a Google & MSN & Yahoo Search Engine submission of your site.
These have over 80% of the search engine traffic and your site will be ready for any other
search engines where you would personally choose to submit it.
We will give you good suggestions on what key words to put in and will use your input on
that as well. We have no control over how search engines list sites, but we do have
experience enough to know what they look for! This can also save you a lot of money.
Additional similar formatted pages designed (text and pictures only) will be in the range
of $20-30, depending on the amount of detailed work involved. Remember, we have to
charge for the time and skill it takes, which would include any research time you would
want us to do for you on any special features.
We will be upfront to tell you what skills we can and cannot do at the current time, and
most of the time we will work to get it. You will find we are very reasonable.
It's really great when you can give ideas on the style and features you want from other
pages you've seen as examples.
We really want you to like your website! More pages or many details and graphics designs
or other features desired will obviously cost more, but we are priced very reasonably. We
can usually do something similar if you have a site you have admired online.
We can work with some Word.doc's and .pdf’s but website coding has a different code
format, especially with the different page interlinkings and the graphics placement and
we will work to make it as close as possible. So they surely can be helpful to understand
your placements ideas and .pdf files can be utilized.
Later site updates are also very reasonable. For example: Simple wording text changes
for each one area of update will be $5.00 each per time, or a picture swap-out of a
similar formatting will be $5-10.00 each. The update fees can be a little less if minor and
grouped to be all done at one time. We don’t try to take advantage of you, we just
have to charge for the time and skill it takes.
For those who want frequent updating, we also can set up one or more of your page links
to link to a blog that you can keep personally updated. We will even help you set up your
blog. This often helps many people who want basic content on their website and then
one page for their frequent updates.
Basically, when it comes to web design, you will be charged for the reasonable time and
skill it takes to set it up.
There is not an extra "set up fee." We will be fair to the current market value or often
better, and we believe that you will be pleased with the clean, professional and
trustworthy site we deliver.
STEP 4: To get things going we will require upfront:
$15.00 - (for 1 year) To register your web domain name (securing for multiple year
discounts can be done)
$40.00 - (for 1 year) For web hosting (on a server) where we upload your web files so
they can be seen on the internet
$150.00 - For beginning design work and theme of the first page, with full balance due
upon completion phases of work.
Most new sites cost around $300 and take about a week or two to complete.
You can pay with PayPal or with your credit card via PayPal. Click on the Payment
button below for an easy, encrypted and secure payment system.
Once we determine the approximate cost, it usually works out to half upfront and the
balance due immediately upon completion. At this time, most websites can be
completed in one week.
If you need something really fast, we will work with you on that. We can work with your
current site or build it from scratch.
