Thank you so much for considering our web design firm for your website and search engine optimization (SEO) campaign. You can now book an appointment to begin a project evaluation.
Developing an in-depth proposal begins with in-person consultation with all stakeholders. Here is a bit of straight talk concerning the various aspects of web design & development. Your time is valuable and we respect that.
These days, our web development services are in very high demand. Current projects have a target end date, which means there is always room for yours. To assure your total satisfaction with any project, we must determine if our services are a good fit for your requirements. These can take time to discover.
Most former clients have chosen simple, basic websites in lieu of expensive artistry. A high level of graphic detail is entirely possible, but few have found it necessary. Our own website is a good example of this kind of straightforward design. The true purpose of a business website is to generate leads! That concept is always in the forefront.
The ultimate cost of development very much depends on your expectations and specific project scope. A $500 up-front retainer fee is requested to assist you in developing the exact scope of your project. That fee will, of course, be applied to your final total if you choose to go with our services. This retainer is requested because it can take quite a bit of time and effort to work together to develop a winning plan.
To give you an idea, many small business basic websites can be developed with ample design elements and high functionality for as little as $97 per month, all inclusive with hosting, security and backup. We have learned that business-minded owners prefer not to invest thousands up front for websites that may take months to show a proper return. We are happy to partner with you on that score, and will respectfully request your commitment to a minimum 24 month term agreement. Your complete satisfaction is unconditionally guaranteed, and you are under no obligation to continue with the services, however to be eligible to acquire full ownership of the underlying website, along with all content, you will need to reach your 24 month anniversary date or pay the pro-rated amount. Fair enough?
Our team always uses best SEO practices when it comes to building a search friendly website. Not trying to scare you off here either, but please understand that the cost of extensive online marketing (a separate issue) depends on your advertising budget, which should be a minimum of $1,000 per month for an effective ad campaign. You should also be ready to commit to a one year timeline. While a separate search marketing campaign is not a strict requirement, it is highly recommend to attain top search engine rankings. Telemarketers may try to sell you on instant gratification, but don’t fall for it! The truth is, there are no slam dunks! It takes money, hard work and perseverance to bubble up in the search results organically. You can also kick start your campaign with a pay-per-click budget. The good news is… You can count on us to support you along the way!
