+ How long does a project take?
It depends on a few factors: schedule openings, complexity, and your response time. Most website builds are scheduled to begin approximately four weeks after first contact. This allows time for you to complete any text copy, take any new photos, and do the homework required for me to create your site.
The complexity of your website is another factor, while some sites can be completed in as little as a month, others can take as long as three to four months to fully plan and construct. I’ll give you a better timeline quote during our strategy session.
The final factor is your response time. During the project you will need to respond as quickly as possible to my questions and provide feedback. Delays in your responses will result in a delay in the launch of the website, and may increase the overall cost of the project. If you have any vacations or offline time planned during the time we’re supposed to be working on your website, please let me know before you sign the contract so I may alter the timeline accordingly.
+ How much will my website cost?
In general, most websites start at $1200 and go up in price based on a few factors: complexity, scope, and timeline. We’ll discuss your project and create a custom quote based on your needs. Complexity also applies to strategy—the scope of work also affects the overall price.
The price quoted at the beginning of the project may not be the final price as changes to the scope of work (adding, removing or changing features) may result in the final project cost changing.
Finally, the timeline affects the price. The price quoted is based in part on the amount of time I believe the project will take to complete. Delays due to failure on your part to provide content or feedback will result in a “holding fee” for each week the project extends past the timeline. If you have a tight deadline, a “rush fee” may be charged to complete the project in time.
+ Is there a payment plan?
50% of projected project cost due before work begins and to secure your spot on my schedule.
50% of projected project cost due before the website launches or after 60 days, whichever happens first.
100% of additional costs (fonts, images, licenses, and anything we’ve added to the project) due before website launch.
+ What is included?
Some important things that are included: mobile optimization, basic SEO (how you will be found on Google), integration of social media if desired, training on how to update your site after its launch, integration of email marketing software
+ I'm not sure i am tech-savvy enough to manage my new website, should i even bother?
Squarespace is extremely user-friendly and we will have a video training call before your website launches to answer any and all questions you have about updating your site. If you still feel like your site needs to be managed by someone else, I offer on-going monthly retainer packages, which means I can keep your website up-to-date for you!
