How This Works

Pricing starts at $500 for a fully customized, mobile-ready (aka ‘responsive’), WordPress-based site with fixed structure and ample but finite content. As usual, cost increases with sophistication and the time naturally involved with a more complex design and build-out.

Step 1

    Once payment’s received, your project begins

Step 2

    We provide a form, you provide the goods

Step 3

    Once you approve the work, we launch

The Package

The $500 website package includes:
• Help with your domain name and/or hosting plan acquisition
• A mobile-friendly, custom website based on your direction
• Configuration of up to 5 email addresses associated with your site
• A MailChimp email marketing account integrated into your site
• A set of images to use for marketing your site on social media

NOTE: Because design and development are heartily discounted, the site fee is nonrefundable.

The Goods

The $500 website customizations include:
• Your choice of main navigation placement (top, bottom, left, right) and color palette
• A Home page with your choice of hero (main) image, your header and subheader text, and up to 2 call-to-action (CTA) buttons
• A News/Blog page with one introductory post featuring your text and 1 image
• A Bio/About page featuring your text and up to 4 photos
• A Gallery page featuring up to 20 photos and 4 YouTube, Vimeo or locally hosted videos
• An Event / Tour page including an initial event and 1 photo (flyer, poster, etc)
• A Press page with up to 5 summary listings
• Linked social media icons in the header and/or footer (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Soundcloud, etc.)
• A content management tutorial so you can update your site (we also offer retainer contracts on a retainer basis)

Substitutions are always a possibility, with the understanding that they may incur additional fees if they introduce an increase in workload. Need more? Enhanced functionality, features, and capacity are available at additional cost. Just let us know and we can upgrade accordingly.

The Process

Commit to supporting your career with a professional, dedicated online presence.

You’ll also need to choose a domain name (URL) and a hosting plan for your site if you don’t already have either or both. We can help you with those as soon as the fee’s paid, or you can take care of it yourself through Bluehost, our host of choice.

Pay the $500 website fee via PayPal to initiate your project.

The website fee covers your package’s design-and-build labor costs only; it does not include the Avada theme cost ($62), hosting fees (as low as $32/year with Bluehost), or any other extraneous costs.

Upon receipt of payment, we’ll assign the start date for commencing the building of your site (on a first-come, first-served basis), and send you a content-request email that’ll include:

  • Your assigned start date
  • A list of the content and creative direction we need from you
  • A link to a personal Dropbox folder so you can upload your content
  • Your site’s target launch date

That same email will serve as our contract with you.

You’ll have two opportunities to review your site and request changes: the first once the site’s built; the second just before launch to review and approve changes from the first review and make final adjustments.

Provided all content is received in a timely fashion, the target launch date will be within 15 days from your start date, or from the date we’ve received all of the content for your site, whichever is later.
