Website Design and Development Rates
The cost of the website is based on the estimated time it will take to develop, design and implement your website based on the information you provided to me. On average it takes 20 hours to develop the typical 5-10 static page website.
The following are some of the most common items that go into web design and site development.
- domain registration
- domain transfer
- content revisions
- custom logo design
- placement of additional images or photos
- creation of gallery pages for photos
- photo scanning or digital photography
- copy editing/writing
- custom scripting
- SSL certificate
- shopping carts
- content management systems (CMS)
- bulletin boards
- database design and/or integration
- multimedia integration
- email subscriptions
- mailing lists
- licensing fees for artwork (royalty free or rights managed)
- software requested by the client or required for the website
Important Note: It is possible that your current budget will not allow for all of the bells and whistles. However, if I know what the final outcome of the website is it can be planned for and when you have the additional funds those items can be easily incorporated. Your website can be developed in phases based on your budget.

Search Engine Optimization: SEO is a separate quote due to the research and preparation required, and if you want an ongoing monthly reports and SEO maintenance (1 hour minimum per month).
