Usually the first question but here goes, All sites are different, your cost will depend on the complexity of your site for example, how many pages is it?, will we have to provide images, will it involve saleable items?, so many questions and not a hard answer the bottom line is depending on the complexity will define the site cost. Sites can be as small as just one page hence they will cost less. To keep the cost of a site down its best if the owner comes in with a clear picture of what they want, ie images , how many pages, whats in the menu system etc.
Why we charge partially for our artistic abilities if the owner has a clearer picture of what they want it takes us less time to develop, hence charge.
The simple answer here is we require 50% down to establish the site, eg get the domain name , install and set up the site on the server etc. Once the site is completed and signed off by the owner then prior to going online we will require the remaining 50% paid.
There are only 2 items you will be responsible for yearly, the first being the maintenance of YOUR domain name. Typicall this charge is around $14. But remember it will be your obligation to pay it. Please note here if you already have your domain name captured for instance at GoDaddy then you will be responsible with them to keep the name updated.
Then once yearly your responsible to pay $250, this is too keep your site updated, virus free and a host of other administrative processes to many to mention here. If no other updates or additions to your site have been completed this is all your responsible for.
First your site will include a "Responsive" design this is a web design that will populate and work on ALL devices. It will have particular mode of appearance depending is the user is viewing on a smart phone, tablet, computer or anything in between. Your site will contain an interactive Google Map(if desired), you will have online contact forms with slider processing.
Most importantly your site will be HTTPS, in other words your site will be secure and backed behind a secure firewall. HTTPS is important to achieve a good Google ranking.
Your site will also be SEO optimized. That is the site will be optimized to rank the best it can possible rank in Google searches(the closest to the top). A disclaimer here is many think we can make your site appear at the top of a Google search all the time, this is incorrect while we do our very best to achieve this it cannot be guaranteed. Please understand it may take Months to get your site ranked properly this is normal. Rest assured SEO is done on your site and updated monthly.
You will also ocassionaly get the benefit of new updates that we think will make your site better, AT NO CHARGE TO YOU! IE like new contact forms with process bars etc.
In completion while this is by no means a complete guide to what you get with your site it is some of the more important ones. See the folowing link for SEO definition.
