New Business Site
When you order a site to be created, I
will confer with you extensively for your ideas on what
you'd like your site to look like. For budget purposes, you
should plan on paying $160-$250 for the artwork and creation
of your homepage. Additional pages inside the site will
generally bill at $45.00 - $55.00 per page after that. Some
pages cost less and some pages (such as creating a form or
adding e-commerce) will cost more. Simple Flash animation is
usually included in your site design, Full Flash animation
is billed at $80 per hour.
Some business web sites require more
or less customization than others. So in turn the cost
cannot be determined exactly until I know what you are
wanting from your web site.
We live in a "click and go" society
so I will suggest your site pages remain one or two screens
long. (scroll down once or twice) After that your visitors
will get bored with paging down and be tempted to leave your
site. I suggest you don't try to cram everything on one
page, keep it moving and keep them interested!
If your site consists of two or
three pages, with multiple graphics on each page and
possibly a form to send information to you, you should
budget in the $400-$600 range. You can not advertise to the
whole world with any other media for a price that low.
Changes to the site, once published, is at a rate of $40 per
hour if you want to have your site updated "ala carte"
If you regularly update your site and I highly suggest you
do to keep your visitors interested with fresh photos and
information, then you will benefit from my monthly
maintenance plans starting as low as 7.00 a month. (see
I do not charge any "set up" fees.
My pricing is straightforward and tailored to your budget

If your site requires unlimited pages the best route to go is with a

as $1000.00 per year and go up from there depending on if you need a
shopping cart, flash animation, videos or PHP databases. We can
