We also offer consulting services for other areas of the digital landscape. Even if we don't offer a particular service, we can generally assist you in cutting through the noise to help you understand your choices.
As with everything we do, we will happily review your wish list & requirements to provide you with an estimate prior to starting any work.
Ask us about our WordPress packages! We offer a $20 setup, $20 a month WordPress sites that you can take over and customize to your liking after we get you past the initial installation and domain name tie-in. We also offer additional paid assistance with plugins and customization if you ever need a little more help or guidance.
Businesses that have outgrown WordPress or that have requirements far beyond their limited abilities vary in cost depending on needs and scope of usage. For example membership sites generally start around $40 a month and may have added one-time fees for things like eFlyers going out to the entire membership. Most clients choose to pass that along to their members with an integrated payment gateway like Stripe.
As with everything we do, we will happily lay out all your options, potential costs, and recommendations, and provide you with a written quote prior to starting any work.
When warranted, we do utilize clipart and premade photos, but we generally prefer to create graphics from scratch. It usually gives us greater flexibility and control.
Our graphics are not limited to websites either. We can create logos, book covers, banners, and even t-shirt designs. The level of detail is only limited by your imagination and the scope of the project.
As a rule it is much easier, faster, and cheaper, to start with a template that meets your needs in terms of available layouts and desired pages.
From there we completely customize the design, tie in databases for functionality, and add the ability for you to make text or other desired changes through your back-end site interface.
Of course if you aren't happy with existing template choices, we can certainly create a site design from scratch.
WordPress sites utilize templates too but are not generally recommended for companies needing a more professional look and feel. It just depends on what your needs are for your business, staff, and customers.
As part of your initial consultation, we will go over your needs, wish list, and offer you the options we think will be a good fit.
Like most businesses, we close for traditional holidays like Christmas, New Year's, Veterans Day, Labor Day, and the 4th of July.
As a rule we ask that you give us 1 - 2 business days to respond to general email inquiries. However, we often respond to emails after hours anyway.
Existing customers are also given our emergency number for any after-hours emergencies. We doubt you'll ever need it, but it's there just in case.
That said, we don't recommend tinkering with the code unless you know what you're doing. If you're an up-and-coming web developer learning to code by hacking the source, we strongly suggest setting up a development environment for that.
Payments & Billing
We also prefer to use Stripe for customer websites due to its clean integration. If you need us to integrate a different payment gateway, we are happy to discuss your needs further.
