What’s the big secret?
When I set out to purchase something I prefer a straight forward conversation. Sales people often do a fantastic job of telling me about their product, but shy away from conversation about pricing. It’s almost as, if they let me know how much it was I would run away. Let’s not shy away from that conversation. I want you to know what you’re paying for and what you’re getting. These topics and more are addressed during our FREE initial phone consultation.
You’re paying for years of experience I have accumulated designing and implementing online services. I have found it takes a certain amount of time and energy just to setup a website. Identifying color combinations, Search Engine Optimization, Web Hosting, etc., I’ll stop there. You just want the facts. I have three packages I offer that I talk about later on, and custom pricing for larger projects.
Make no mistake. Creating your website is a collaborative effort. It’s your site. It’s your business. I can help you properly communicate what you offer. Keep in mind, once we go through this process together, you will come to understand, your website is only one player contributing to a strong online presence.
Phone Consultations are FREE of charge. If you prefer for me to physically come to your location then I am going to charge you $150 for a one hour site visit due and payable at the end of the visit. Mileage is billed at .50 per mile if you exceed 50 miles of Montgomery, AL The Site Visit charge of $150 per hour will be applied as a credit to any quote for service I provide you. I don’t mind doing these site visits but they must be scheduled.
Whatever we discuss is of course confidential. Use this time to explore your idea to it’s fullest and don’t get concerned if we start chasing windmills. This is the process. Creativity flows from collaboration.
At the end of the Phone Consultation or Site Visit, I will be able to provide you a Scope of Work and a quote detailing the services I recommend as necessary to complete your project.
Website Hosting Configuration: If you already have a website hosting service then you can skip this, just get me a login and password. If not, I recommend you to get your own web hosting services and manage it yourself. The reason for this is simple. I have seen a number of complications arise when someone pays their developer for web hosting, only to later want to make a change and find themselves in a bind. I think you benefit well by owning your own domain and managing where you host your site. Give access to those working on it and remove access when they are done. I can help you with this and recommend using SiteGround
