Here’s a general idea of how the project will go:
Website Design Packages
Below are package details for WordPress template-based custom website designs. Please let me know if I can customize a package to your needs.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. -Steve Jobs
Other Cost Considerations
There are many other costs associated with a website.
Please review the list below and note that these are in addition to the packages listed above.
Domain – www.xxxxxxx.com. Annual fee of approximately $12 recommended NameCheap.com
Email address with your domain name such as email@example.com. No @gmail.com or @yahoo.com addresses please as they do not convey professionalism, confidence and are often mistaken for spam. An annual fee of $72 recommended for Google’s GSuite.
Website hosting. Annual fee of $250 through my recommended hosting services. Which offers hacker-free security, fast speed/load times and a free SSL security certificate.
Additional website pages over and above the packages above – $250 a page
Non-Profit – Set up of simple donation functionality with PayPal or Stripe (plus additional processing fees payable to either company) – $350
Events calendar without ticketing (plus additional annual fee payable to event plugin) $350
Event calendar with ticket sales (plus additional yearly fee payable to event plugin) $550
Online Store with 10 products or less– including a Basic E-commerce Process with free or flat rate shipping – $1,000
Monthly support to keep the website updated and error-free $99 per month

Testing is done in current versions of major desktop browsers including Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox. Testing is not done in other or older browser versions. Testing using smaller screen devices is done in iOS Safari, Google Chrome, and Android Google Chrome. Browser testing does not mean attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
Terminating our agreement is possible. Full payment for the time I’ve spent working until that point is required. Any deposit will be forfeited. Work paid for will be turned over to you. A written notice is required if either party chooses to end the project.

What happens after our consultation?
If you decide you want to work with me and our schedules align, you’ll need to sign the contract and pay the 35% non-refundable deposit. After that, I will send you the New Website Questionaire and create a Google drive for the sharing of files.
At the mid-point of the project, before work continues a 35% payment will be due. Finally, when we both agree the project is ready to launch the final 30% of the project will come due.
