Web Site Builders Fee Schedule

Hourly Rates and Standard Fees

If you have an existing web site or you want a new one, we can work with you on an hourly basis or by the piece.  For the newbie we have a Web Site Starter Package, which is your typical online advertisement web site.  If you are interested in our service, you will get a signed contract from us when you make your deposit.  Web Site Design Blueprints and Calculations Web Site Design Blueprints and CalculationsDo the other webmasters you know provide you with this kind of assurance by publishing their fees and contracts on their web site so its all clear up front? 

Each one of our contracts is drafted to meet the specific needs of the client.  Our contracts specify what will be delivered, roughly how much it will cost, and who owns the result.  We also have experienced consultants, if you need more control and need specialized help.  In our experience, we have found that everyone seems more comfortable with the web site, when we put the design down on paper, because it sets their expectations in advance.

When it comes to web site designs, it is not so easy to identify with what you actually own, if anything.  We differentiate ourselves from other web design services by taking great care in the material we use, and by letting our customers know what is at stake.  To help us expedite the delivery of your service, we have developed several pre-built server objects that can be plugged into  web sites and customized to fit your requirements.  They include Member Services, Appointment Scheduling, Community Calendars and our Catalog Oriented E-Commerce System which is searchable by key word in combination with price, category or descriptive information; and, their is no limit to the number of items.

Please note that meetings in our office are by appointment only.  We do not take walk ups.  The free initial consultation is reserved for the decision makers.  The contact person listed in your Request for Quote should be a person within your organization that has the authority to execute contracts.  Contract talks should focus on price and functionality.  Be prepared to discuss elements of your contract at these meetings, which would include your site's aesthetic design, the required functionality, development milestones and our payment schedule.

It should come as no surprise, that payment is expected in advance of the delivery of a product or service.  Unless you establish credit with us, all assignments are initiated by making a deposit to a refundable retainer.   We work on an hourly basis drawing against the retainer according to the time reported on your invoice.  Money left in the retainer, when the project is over, is returned to the customer.
