Three packages to choose from
I have set my website design and hosting fees to be affordable by any business. If you are a small business and need a simple website presence - I can help you with my basic Economy pricing plan.
The Economy plan includes up to 5 web pages such as; home page, about us, contact page, photo gallery, menu, products and services, etc. You can pick and name up to 5 pages and I will design them to your complete satisfaction. You also get up to 2 free domain based email accounts with this package.
The other two packages, the Deluxe Plan and the Premium plan, simply offer more pages and more email accounts. You can upgrade to either of these larger packages at anytime by simply paying the difference. This allows your website to grow with your business.
The one-time design fee is what I charge to professionally build your website. My programming, artistic and sales experience helps me to design an effective website for your business. My rates are far below the industry average. A going rate for a professional website design is around $1,000 to $2,000 for similar packages. My design fee includes all the graphic design and programming of the HTML - there are no surprises.
The monthly hosting and licensing fee is a month to month cost to keep your website visible to the world. You could compare it to the dial tone to your telephone. A website without a hosting service would be equivalent to a phone sitting on your desk without a dial tone - whereas no one can dial in to your business. The hosting and licensing fee allows people to "dial in" to your website - 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
I do require a credit card to setup automatic billing for the hosting and licensing fee because it would quickly become burdensome to do monthly invoicing for such a small amount. The automatic billing is for both your convenience and mine. If you don't have a credit or debit card, or prefer not to, I can bill you annually for 12 months at a time.
I would also recommend that you consider some form of maintenance or content management for your website if you intend to make regular changes. You don't need to pick a plan now, you can add it anytime you wish. Please use my on-line request for maintenance contact or form to request any changes to your website. I much prefer to receive requests in writing as opposed to verbal instructions because I can't always answer my phone or complete the changes instantly. Using my convenient contact form will create a paper trail for both of us.
In addition to future changes to your website, I would strongly recommend you consider search engine optimization (S.E.O.) for your new website. This service will help your website to leverage more traffic to your website - and ultimately more business for you. Again, there is no contract to sign - we prove value to you with results. Let me show you how I can drive more traffic to your website with S.E.O.
