Your first task, before investing any time or money, should be to determine the primary reason you want to be on the Internet and to identify the audience you want to reach.
Developing an effective website requires thoughtful planning. Understanding the entire process before you begin will save you time and money as the project progresses. There are six basic stages: planning, content development, graphic design, programming, marketing, and maintenance. Depending on your areas of expertise, you may need assistance for some or all phases of your project. We have a questionnaire to help you understand this process.
How much does it cost to build a website? Every situation is different, that's why it's best to get a free quote. Usually a basic website is going to cost $110.00 - $350.00, a medium range site is going to cost $375.00 - $1150.00 and a high end site is going to run $1200.00 - $10,100.00. REMEMBER this is just an example. We have done sites for as little as $110.00 and quoted sites as much as $5,125.00. We don't pride ourselves on being the least expensive, we pride ourselves on being the best for your money.
Having a website requires a lot of time, but creating it is only half the battle. Once you've actually put the site online, the real challenge lies in maintaining and updating it. Keeping your site fresh encourages people to return. Poor maintenance is a sure way of losing visitors, perhaps permanently. We offer custom maintenance programs including: email monitoring, newsletter & email lists, updating text (i.e. announcements, articles, etc.), replacing images (i.e. pictures & graphics), adding/removing pages, general site submission/re-submission to over 400 search engines.
