So, you've decided you need a website. Now what?

You call me, and we talk about it.

I'll work with you to figure out what you need and how difficult it will be. If you need a big, complex website, you're better off going to a big web-design house. I focus on small sites for small businesses, only a few pages which are relatively easy to design and create. I use simple, eye-pleasing page layouts arranged in equally simple floorplans to create websites that are:

  • fun for visitors to look at, with a mix of graphics and text
  • easy for visitors to understand & navigate
  • informative, telling users all they need to know about your business

Either way, it will be your website, designed to your specifications, to meet the needs of your business.


My basic rates are:

  • Initial Consultation -- free. This would be a few minutes, perhaps an hour or so, where we discuss what you need, what you want, and whether I can do it. This can be either in person or over the phone.
  • Webpage Creation -- a flat fee of $250 covers up to 6 pages. Additional pages are $25 per page. This includes layout, design, and any specialized programming. It does not include content.
  • Content creation -- $20/hr. I can write copy and (assuming you're located close enough to me) take any photographs you might need. If you have digital photos that need editing, I can do that. If you have print photos that need to be digitized, I can do that too. Obviously, the more you can do yourself, the less it will cost you.

Expenses -- You cover charges such as domain registration and site hosting. I'll explain what that means and help you look for good rates.

I reserve the right to alter these prices, depending on the complexity of the job.

When the job is done, you get copies of the source code files for the site, along with all the necessary information to access your account on the hosting service you choose. That way, if you want to update the site in the future, you won't be forced to come back to me. Any web programmer will be able to edit or revise it for you.
