Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to create my website?

During project start up, we will provide you with a project schedule. Project duration depends on a lot of factors including number of web pages and overall complexity. A key dependency is availability of creative content such as copy, images, and videos.  We schedule project work by phase. For example, development will be scheduled once we have all creative assets.

A good rule of thumb is six weeks from start to launch consisting of two weeks for design, two weeks for development and two weeks for testing. That being said, we want your website to be awesome, so we will not launch until you are completely satisfied and we both agree the site is ready to go live.

What will it cost?

The cost will vary depending on what sort of site you’re looking for. The cost can vary anywhere from $1,000 for a one-page brochure site up to $10,000 for a more complex site.

Most custom designed basic small business websites will cost between $3000-$5000, which includes design, development, domain name, and 3 months of site maintenance following launch.

If you want more features, like complex forms, online bookings, membership etc, you’ll be looking at spending more money. Whatever scope we agree on, I work hard to make sure you come away feeling that you’ve received exceptional value

You absolutely will be able to monitor development of your website. Once we have the basic site layout and high level design in place, we will being development in a development environment.

  • Web Page
