Call Today for a Complimentary Consultation and Website Bid.*|
A bid is our guarantee of the maximum price you will pay for your Website, along with a due date of completion.
You may use the Pricing Calculator to get an idea of the price
range for your Website.
After we speak with you we will review your needs and provide you with an itemized bid (usually within two business days).
Bids are itemized so you can see exactly how much time/cost each area of development requires. Bids are provided in
excel formats allowing potential clients to add and remove items based on need, budgetary and time constraints. We never
submit a whole package or nothing solution. We realize your needs may change between bid submission and acceptance, we
therefore make the bidding process as flexible as possible. Most bids
are valid for 30 days (longer if requested). Giving your firm plenty of time to review other competitive options.
To provide the highest quality service, we work from a "first down payment receipt" basis and never take on more
work than we can handle. Therefore providing us with bid feedback, before the bid expiration date, is important to insure
we can meet projected completion deadlines. Three months is the longest a new client has had to wait for us to begin work
on their Website project.
In some emergency site rescue or other cases the entire bidding process to actual start time has been delivered with same
day turn around.
What to Expect When You Call.
Below is a brief outline of some of the questions we will be asking you to determine the bid price for your Website.
Do you have a Website already? If so do you need it updated, redesigned, enhanced or modified?
Provide some visual example of what you want your Website to look like. This could be in electronic format, a drawing,
or a cut and paste hard copy. We can also design the look and feel of your Website, keeping your current brochure-ware
and input in mind.
Will you need photography or other graphic images?
Will you be providing all the verbiage in electronic format
for every page or do you need copy writing assistance?
Choose three Websites that you admire. Choose some Websites in your industry and other Websites you like.

Will you want email notification for your forms?
Will you need online form validation?
(This means if your online form asks for an email, the form will check for an email type format and so on.) Form validation
is a way for your company to limit the number of online for submissions, by insuring your clients or potential clients provide you
with the information you want.

What are your future plans for the Website?
Will you be providing the Meta tag key words should you want them?

access and search? This could be your products or services listings.

* The bid preparation and initial consultation costs will be included in the consulting/client-meetings section of the bid.
