These are our standard prices for building a website. The Basic Site is one of the most common and is a good fit for most small businesses that simply need an online presence which is expected in today's world and is also covers most personal site like a blog. Please keep in mind that the only SEO efforts for the sites as priced below is proper mark up/code. One of the main components of SEO is well written copy and since the prices below are for you providing the copy, we can't guarantee any level of search engine placement. We will however guide you in the right direction for creating SEO friendly copy. We can also do the copy writing or the most likely scenario would be for you to provide the basic copy and we would adjust it. The other major component for SEO is inbound links which are quality links leading to your site and this actually has more weight for SEO than the copy. Think of it as your online reputaion or word of mouth. This is something that takes time and most Inbound Link Campaigns take upwards of a year to complete and are ongoing after that. It's not cheap and not for everyone. It takes a good deal of research, pre-planning and dedication.
Naturally, the packages below are not going to fit every case. As for graphic design, that's almost a field in itself. Perhaps you already have a graphic designer. If so, we can take their design ideas and implement them but that's not included. What is included is the theme of your choice, that we approve of, along with some tweaks to make it not so cookie cutter and/or to fit your logo and layout needs. Not all themes will be approved due to the fact that there's some very poorly coded themes out there, especially the free ones. There's also some premium themes that are bloated by trying to be everything to everyone.Once we know what your desires are, we can either choose several themes for you to pick from or you can choose several themes that you like the design of and we'll choose what we think would be the fastest and most reliable.
On top of themes, there's plugins which add functionality and there's literally 10s of 1000s of them. Like theme's some are better than others. Some themes and plugins will slow a site down to a crawl and free themes and plugins, not found via wordpress.org can contain malicious code. This is why we need to approve of them. This protects everyone on the server. With the abundance of themes and plugin, I'm sure we can find a good alternative for any need.
We do not custom code sites. That is way outside of the price range below and can easily go into the 5 and even 6 digit price range. If that's what you need, then we're not for you. There are plenty of large web design firms out there but we're not one of them.
* As mentioned above, we must approve any theme that will be installed on our servers and the same goes for plugins. Anything available through wordpress.org is checked by the wordpress team for proper code and those are all safe to use but that doesn't mean they won't break something or bog down a site. Sometimes, two plugins or a theme and a plugin are incompatible even if both coded very well. We've got quite a good collection of preferred plugins and can advise you on your selection. Free themes and plugins found outside of wordpress.org should NOT be used as they can contain malicious code. Premium themes and plugins found at codecanyon and themeforest are generally safe as they are reviewed.
