Upfront pricing - up to six page websites are only $500 without recurring fees. $250 for me to start and $250 after it's completed and online! If you need more pages it's just $25 per extra page. If you have extra long pages, lots of photos in your gallery page, or need PayPal buttons it'll be a little more. I'll charge according to the time it'll take and let you know in advance.
I'm happy to help you with this part or do it for you - you'll need to get your domain (yourdomain.com) which is about $10 per year, your SSL should be about $15 per year. Hosting with email service ([email protected]) is around $7 per month.
All you need to know how to do is email the text and photos you want on your pages. Please see more information in the "Content" section below. If you have an existing website and need a new look I can get your content from your existing site.
Click a link to open the section and read a little bit about the topic. Click again to close.
You'll need to have your content ready for me to start on your website. Contact me so we can email back and forth. Email me the text you want on each page OR open Word or Notepad, type out what you want on your pages, and save as the title of that page (Home.docx, About Us.docx, or Home.txt, etc.). Email those to me as an attachment one at a time also attaching pictures you want on that page. If files are too large to email we can use a cloud service or a flash drive. I can send you a link where you can upload directly into my cloud service and you don't even have to sign up for an account. If you prefer you can put each page in a folder on your computer, then put them all in one folder, zip it, and upload to my cloud account. Pictures should be at least 2,650 pixels wide or 1,440 pixels tall, they don't have to be but it's best for high resolutions. I'll reduce the file size without losing dimensions before putting them on your website so your pages will load fast. Don't worry about trying to make your Word document look like you want it on your web page. You can just write me notes in the document. Example "Carrie, align John.jpg right" and/or "Carrie, put the following in a three column table".
Choose a domain (yourdomain.com). You can see if it's available at Whois, type in the URL you'd like (yoursite.com) then click the search button.
Choose a layout. We'll change colors, fonts, and anything you want from there. I'll make sure everything lines up with the font you choose and make sure to keep your menu from going to the drop down menu until it's necessary depending on page title lengths.
You can choose a font for your title and headings from Google Fonts. Choose a font for your regular page text from there too or I'll choose one for you that I think looks good with it. If you see a website with a font you like let me know which site. I can match it or come really close. If you're not happy with the way your chosen fonts look on your website I'm happy to change them up to three times at no charge. You can also buy fonts and email them to me.
If you need a free logo I know some good places to look. If you're downloading a logo choose the largest size available or the vector version. I can change the color/s so don't worry about that. If you have an old logo that doesn't look very good anymore (maybe it's pixelated or too small) I can re-draw it. I'll let you know the price before I do it depending on how long I think it'll take. Or you could have one made.
You can choose from any color chart or color palette website, or you could tell me you like the green of the "L" in the Google logo at google.com or a color from a website you found and I can match it. I can match colors from business cards, logos, and photos too. Then I can add colors that look good with it or just make some things lighter and darker. You can create colors here if you'd like. Email me the 6 digit Hexidecimal codes. For example, the "L" in Google is #34a853. Or click "Get Color Scheme", then "Print / Save", and "Save as PDF", then blue button "Save" and email it to me.
I'll make you a test website with custom graphics which should take about one week; you'll love it or want to make small changes. That's done and...
I'll do some fine tuning and have your brand new website online within a week. That's it! All websites I make are extremely search engine friendly.
You will have access to your website and the ability to change words yourself but I'm happy to make changes for you for two weeks. If you need photos changed I'll do it for you. If you need a lot of things changed I'll charge a small fee depending on how much time I think it'll take.
If you have any questions please contact me.
