Once we have discussed what you want for your website — size, design aspects, functional features and add-ons — I will give you an estimate for my work on your site. My fee includes a responsive theme unless you choose an unusual premium theme — this is rare and usually unnecessary.
Additional costs include website hosting fees (averaging between $5 and $10 monthly subject to change) and any images you wish to purchase for your site. If you choose additional (optional) site backup and security features, web hosting companies charge additional fees. Most web hosting companies also offer promotional internet marketing services — these can add quite a bit to your total cost and there are cost-free steps you can take to help your website show up in internet searches. Web hosting companies show you all these options and their fees as you go through the initial sign-up process. I have more information about signing up with BlueHost website hosting on the getting started page.
Copy editing assistance, if desired, is charged separately on a per hour basis. Please call me to discuss my fees and your editing needs.
Once your website is finished you can usually make editorial changes yourself. I have posted some helpful video tutorials on editing your content on the Videos & Tutorials page. If you do not wish to make changes yourself, I charge on an hourly basis for site maintenance and updates.
