Web Design Pricing and Process

Our Web Design Pricing

website design pricingBusiness owners need to think of their website as an investment instead of an expense.  A professionally done website with the right features will provide a great ROI and will pay for itself many times over.  When choosing a website vendor you must keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Your website is one of your most valuable marketing tools so quality should always take priority over price.

Most website vendors charge by the hour.  The problem with this method is that you have no idea what your website will cost until after the work is completed.  Most people find that their actual bill with this model is MUCH higher than their initial quote.  As a business owner we would not be comfortable buying a website with this pricing model.  We have chosen to price our websites using flat rates instead. This allows us to give fixed quotes upfront so you know EXACTLY what your website will cost before we start.

Our custom websites start at $1,999 and are built using the WordPress Content Management System (CMS).  You can completely customize your website to include the exact features you need since we sell all functionality a-la-cart.  We charge a flat set-up fee that covers installing and configuring the CMS.  We then have standard fees for each page of content and each piece of functionality you would like added.  We would be happy to get you a free no obligation quote and discuss these fees in more detail with you.

Finally we perform cross-device compatibility testing to make sure the site looks great and works properly on every type of Internet-enabled device, including a traditional computer, smartphone and tablet.

Production (Days 44-58):

We present the prototype to you for  review. At this point we work together to make sure the design and layout is the way you want it and make minor adjustments if needed.
