Pricing or “Rates”

Though our sites are often done on a negotiated sliding scale, some people like to know what “our rates” are. While web design rates are often very high, which is what leads many to try and set up their own websites using various tools that are available and then settle for what limits these tools can provide, we like to set up a relationship with our client from start to finish and make sure that they are completely satisfied with the results. This can sometimes be a short process, or sometimes a long process. We typically receive between $400-$1000 to complete this process in setting up a new website depending on your needs. If you have an existing website, we can help you upgrade with one of our Maintenance Plans below. Website maintenance is often neglected and this is regretted when a website becomes one of the estimated 10,000 websites that get hacked each day 1. Cleanup is difficult and expensive and often results in a loss of data. All of our plans include daily backups, and security measures to keep your site safe from attack so you don’t need to worry. If you feel uncertain about any of this, please contact us we want to make sure that the finances do not interfere with our being able to help you set up the website you are looking for. Take a few minutes to fill out our client worksheet, and we will let you know if we feel you are a good fit before we even start to worry about money.
