We know that long-term commitment is a deal-breaker, and that shelling out thousands of dollars for a new website is hard. So, we spread out that initial website design & building cost over a few years. We bundle it with the required ongoing maintenance and service costs and some core SEO and social media services. It’s a complete foundation to build on for a business of any size. And we think you’ll quickly see the value, which is why we’re confident enough to carry the upfront costs.

Quality work and straightforward billing in the hopes of building long-term relationships.

CUSTOM-BUILD / PURCHASE AVAILABLE

Our monthly payment packages are a great deal for the majority of our clients. But most people are more familiar with the concept of buying a site rather than leasing it, and we recognize some the monthly lease option may not suit everyone. So we do also build websites using the more traditional approach – where we sit down, determine your needs, come up with a proposal and a total project price, and you own everything.

The features of the website are the same, and much of the process will be the same. The differences are:

You pay for the site up front
Hosting is set up in your name, and you pay for it
Maintenance is not included (but strongly encouraged as a monthly service)
Marketing, SEO, social media, etc. is not included (available as a service)

If you are going to need all these things anyway, the package is an excellent deal, though!

Website technology changes fast and when the various pieces get updates, they sometimes doesn’t work with other pieces. You should budget for some maintenance, either preventative or troubleshooting.

Preventative maintenance package: This is highly recommended to keep downtime and repair costs down. We run updates, actively block and scan for malware with WordFence Premium, make sure WordPress is running the latest version, and check on the status of all links. We monitor uptime, and we also send monthly reports on website stats and Google Analytics.

Get all the details about our maintenance package on our services page.

Hourly Maintenance: If you’d prefer not to subscribe to the ongoing maintenance package, and something does go wrong, we will always happily work on the websites we’ve built. If the site gets infected with malware, or something breaks or there’s an issue or error, we will be able to fix it quickly and efficiently since we’ve got a deep understanding of the site architecture and construction.

We offer various tiers of online marketing, starting with the basics up to complete SEO and social media campaigns.
