Basic Web Sites
I charge $100 per page. A page is roughly the proportions of an 8½ x 11 sheet of paper. A basic website could include:
- a home page with your logo, contact information, site description and navigation menu to the rest of the site
- about us or bio page
- product page/pages
- information/ordering/contact pages
There are no set rules. Your website can include whatever you want...as many or as few pages as you need. I always work with my clients to design a site that will be a reflection of them. I don't just work for you, I work with you.
Shopping carts are more costly to build than standard html pages. I will quote you a fair price after finding out how many items you have to sell, and how involved the cart will be. If you just have 1 or only a few items to sell, PayPal is a very affordable route to go. I highly recommend it.
Flash can make a great site into a WOW site. I can add flash components to your website in the way of image galleries, slideshows, banners and animations. However, I do NOT create web sites in flash. If you're looking for a flash website, there are super talented flash designers willing to help you develop the site of your dreams. I can refer you to colleagues upon request.
Search Engine Optimization
I am by no means an SEO expert. If I was I'd be a wealthy woman. I can however design and code your site to be search engine friendly. Clean, standards compliant coding, use of alt tags, meta and title tags will help search engines find you and index your site.
At your request I will set you up with a Google Analytics account from which you can gain rich insights into your website traffic. I will also submit a site map to Google which aids Google in seeing all your pages. This service is a one time $35 charge.
Updates and maintenance are available at a $40.00 hourly rate charged in increments of 15 minutes. Maintenance Contracts are available on a month to month basis with rollover of unused time.
