Every website we create is unique and is not some pre-designed template. Some websites are 100+ pages with E-commerce functionality while others may consist of five pages that only contain a little text and a few photos. Because of this, each website is bid out based upon various factors such as number of pages, type of copy needed, applications involved, etc.
Usually, the client is responsible for writing the copy/text for their website. However, we will place your supplied copy on the website for you. We ask that the client supply the copy in Word format.
When you are ready to sign up with us, a 50% down payment is required along with the signed proposal. The remaining 50% is due just before the website goes live or within 30-40 days of when website work begins (whichever comes first). We accept checks, Paypal and Visa/MasterCard.
1. How long does it take for my website project to get finished?
It varies from project to project. Some projects are finished within several weeks. Other projects take three to four months. Factors include the size/complexity of the website, speed of client communication and speed of delivered goods (copy, photos, etc.). On average, most websites are completed somewhere between three to eight weeks.
3. Can you host my website? How much does it cost?
Yes, we offer several web hosting plans. Business hosting plans start at $19.95/month and E-commerce website hosting plans start at $39.95/month. This price includes complete support and administration of your website (including email setup, help and website statistics). When your web design firm and web host are the same entity, website updates are much smoother and more cost-effective.
5. Who owns the website design files once my website is live?
You do! After the website is live and the project is completed, you will own your website design files, text and graphics.
