I think this question is akin to asking how much a car costs - there's not really one simple answer.
The cost of your website depends on a variety of things, such as how many pages there are involved, what functionality you need such as blogging, forms, e-commerce, membership, social media integration, etc.
Also, I would urge you to think of what you pay for your website as an investment instead of an ordinary expense. If done right, the website should be a marketing tool for you, and not an expense like pens and office supplies.
For the best answer, fill out the project questionnaire and I can give you a better idea.
Typically, it takes at least 4-6 weeks to deliver a website, from discovery to go-live.
It can take longer if there are delays in receiving the content, delays in getting feedback in the design, or misunderstood or intercommunicated goals and needs. I will always do my best to fully understand your goals and needs for the site, but I can only work with the information provided.
If you're not comfortable or confident about creating the content, then we can bring a copywriter into the process to help keep things moving forward consistently. This would be an additional expense if not included in the original proposal.
Yes, you will need a domain name and hosting to have a website. I can help you obtain those, or you can sign up on your own. It is recommended to have a complete idea of what you want to include on your site so that you can make sure that your hosting plan will accommodate those needs.
All sites that I build are responsive, which means that the layout and design adjusts to the size of the device that it's being viewed on. More searches are done on mobile devices than on desktop computers, and even Google give a ranking boost to sites that are mobile-friendly.
Yep! E-Commerce sites are more complicated to set up and have their own set of requirements, so they typically need a higher budget and can take more time to finish. Be prepared for a longer development period.
A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool that allows non-technical people to be able to manage and control their content without needing to know code or manage the technical aspects of the site.
Yes, I do! I offer three different types of training - one-on-one, self-paced, and instructor-led. You can learn more about these different types of training on my Learn page.
Yep! A website is not an island, and running your business online effectively requires successful integration of your site to those other systems. Having a cohesive plan for connecting all of these components helps to make them all more effective.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a method of optimizing the content and some of the technical aspects of your website to increase your search engine ranking and help your site be more findable by your target audience.
Contrary to common belief, SEO is not a one-time action, nor is it a verb. You do not "SEO" a website once when it launches and that's the end of it. It is an ongoing process that requires periodic review of the content on your site and the sources of the traffic coming to your site.
That's probably not the best idea. But, I am building a network of copywriters, so I could refer you to one that fits your style.
