We specialize in creating customized WordPress sites that are easily managed, fully responsive and optimized for search engines. If you don’t know what any of that means, that’s OK too! If you’re here because you need a new website or want to replace your old one, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve been building websites for over 20 years, and we’re happy to walk you through the process so you know what to expect.
It’s important that we know your project goals from the very beginning. We’ll guide you in making design & content decisions such as choosing colors, fonts, layouts, photos, and page structure. We can also assist with domain name selection and registration if you do not have an existing site.
2. Content Collection
Content & graphic files will be collected before work can begin. We can usually use existing logos and copy if provided to us in the required formats. Or, we can provide professional branding and writing services as an Add-on, if desired. Once we have all of the necessary materials, we can start building your site!
3. Demo Site
A fully-functioning demo site will be presented online for you to visit and experience your new site’s functionality. All of our websites include up to 6 pages (or sections for single-page, scrolling sites.) For example: Home, Contact, About, Gallery, and other Informational pages. Additional pages or advanced options such as e-commerce functionality may be added for an additional fee.
4. Site Build & Launch
The remaining content, plugins and contact forms are completed. If we’re replacing your existing website, we’ll work with your current host to make the switch when you’re ready. A set of complimentary graphics will be provided so you can share the exciting news on social media!
Because every website is different, we prefer to quote each project after we’ve had a chance to discuss your specific needs. Until then, the following prices can be used as general guidelines to give you a rough idea:
- Domain Name: $12/year
- Website Hosting: $175/year
- WordPress Install & Site Setup (up to 6 pages): Starting from $499
- Premium themes, premium plugins, e-commerce functionality, SEO, social media management, and other add-ons may be required.
Add-ons & Upgrades
Every website we build is created using SEO best practices. The Yoast WordPress plugin will already be installed, set up and ready for your use. Our SEO+ Add-on takes it a step further with a thorough review of your website content, keywords, sitemap, image optimization and more. We’ll make changes to your site to improve Search Engine Optimization, and we’ll submit your sitemap to Google for referencing. SEO is an ongoing process, and we’ll make recommendations on how you can continue making improvements to your site to get better rankings.
Google My Business Add-on
It’s essential for small businesses to have a complete Google My Business listing. Visitors searching the web for local businesses will often find listings on the Google Map display, and a great Google My Business page is more important than ever. We’ll create a profile that complements your new website and link them together to drive even more visitors to you.
Maintenance Plan Add-on
For a small fee, we’ll update your WordPress software and plugins monthly for you. Keeping your software up-to-date is essential for security and smooth performance.
Google Analytics Add-on
Google Analytics is a fantastic tool for tracking your website’s performance and reach. We’ll create an account for you and insert your specific tracking code into your website for you. Google Analytics provides a wide range of reporting options so you can see who’s visiting your site, which pages they are viewing, how they are finding you and how well your Google ads are performing. It’s an essential tool for making sure your site is useful for your visitors and that your marketing efforts are paying off!
Google Ads Add-on
When you perform a search using Google, you’ll often see “Sponsored Ads” at the top and bottom of the page. We’ll set up a Google Ads account for you and help you determine the best strategy for marketing your business to your customers. We’ll create a series of ads to run within the budget you set. Whether you are a new business or well-established, Google Ads can help you get highly targeted placement directly in front of the customers you are trying to attract.
Want to make money on your website by selling products or services directly to your consumers? We will create a customized WooCommerce online store for you. We’ll set up your shopping cart, create product or service listings and show you how to track orders directly within your site.
Changes, Additions & Other Editing
While we’re happy for you to make changes to your new website once it’s complete, you may prefer to have us handle your editing & updating for you. If so, changes are simply billed at an hourly rate. If you have extensive changes, we’ll be happy to give you a quote so you’ll know exactly how much you’ll be billed.
