Website Design

Whether you are migrating, refreshing, or starting anew, I am ready to help you realize your dream website!

Before We Get Started

There are a few things you should know to make sure we are a good fit. 

I create websites on WordPress, primarily using the Divi theme or a Genesis theme combined with Elementor.  If you have a specific third-party theme in mind, I am happy to go that route, but you are responsible for paying the additional cost of the theme. 

Each website will be customized using a variety of templates and custom coding (CSS, HTML, and PHP).

At the end of your design, you will have 3 months of complimentary maintenance (and hosting if you need hosting).  At this point you may choose to continue on one of my maintenance plans.

    What’s Included?

    Every website is different and every business owner has different needs.  Website quotes are customized for every client.  Here are some features that you may choose to be included in your design.

    Some features like security, set up for SEO, and site speed is included with every design!

    Let's Talk Pricing

    Every website is different. A one-size-fits-all model does not work.  However, I know a ballpark figure is helpful in planning budgets.

    In general, my website designs start at $850 which includes the following features as previously described:

    • Standard Pages
    • Security
    • SEO
    • Site Speed
    • Contact Forms
    • Analytics
    • Sidebar
    • Basic Social Sharing
    • Custom Fonts
    • Tutorials
    • GDPR Cookie Notice
    • Redirection
    • Backups

    Additional features  (extra pages, setting up domains, hosting, etc.) will incur additional costs.  I find most sites land in the $1000-1250 range. I would be happy to quote you! Just reach out and let’s talk!

    What is the Design Process Like?

    First, contact me so we start talking options!

    Once we are connected, we will talk about the goals of your site and the best fit for themes and hosting.  You can take a look here at some sites I have designed and look here at some sites that I admire the look of.  

    I’ll ask you to take notes about what you like on each site and be specific! You like this page on this site, and that section on that front page, and this contact form, etc.

    At this point, you may choose to continue on one of my maintenance plans.
