Frequently Asked Questions...
Anything is possible. Cost can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the site and the components that make up the site. Having a specified budget in mind will help me accommodate to your exact specifications. Although you may think this is a loaded question, having a budget to work within will let me maximize my time and efficiency. Small informational sites start at $600, while sites with a large number of pages, databases, and custom scripting could cost any where between $900 and $5000. Choose a plan that fits your needs now, with the ability to upgrade at any time.
The overall time to design and build your site will be determined by the complexity and size of the site, my current workload with other clients, and most importantly, YOUR turnaround time when asked for decisions, feedback, and content. If you have a deadline in mind please let me know immediately – before I give my proposal – and I will do everything I can to accommodate you. However – please remember that the most common delay I encounter while designing and building a site – is waiting for you. If I have all the information together to build the site then the time needed is usually 4 to 6 weeks.
I cannot promise that, but I create web sites with search engines in mind and the web site design is compliant with search engine guidelines. Your web site needs to be re-evaluated regularly because the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your web site is kept up to date and complies with new rules.

Yes we provide web tracking software which records where you visitors are coming from and which pages they looked at, which search engines are being used, which phrases are being typed into which search engines and many more interesting web tracking facts which you should find useful for future marketing campaigns. This comes with the hosting.
Yes, and I only do websites that I host. The hosting is $10 a month and is included in the $20 monthly fee. The fee may be more depending on the amount of bandwidth and disk space you need.
You should purchase you domain name yourself and not from a third party. It's like your business license, you buy it directly from the city and not some person in between. I recommend directnic.com for your domain name and I will assist you in the purchase if needed. I will also help you choose the best domain name for your business. You need to keep the search engines in mine when choosing one. I don't recommend godaddy for anything.

Yes, we use the content management system Joomla. It has a editor similar to word. You click on the page you need to edit, and when you are finished just save it. and Yes I will show you how to use it. For more complex sites that require custom work the updating will have to be done by us, unless you know how to code. We can also custom make a content management site from scratch.
