Web Design 101
When designing and constructing a website, I begin with a simple chat with my client. It really just comes down to
one key question - what do you want your website to do for your business? That's big question, one you may or may
not have the answer to yet. If you don’t know, there is nothing to fear. We’ll get there together by answering
smaller, more simple questions. Once I have established your goals and needs, I can get started on the visual web
design. Once an appropriate website layout (template) has been selected, the web design is fully developed using
the content management system of your choice. The site is then tested and tested again before it is published to
A “page” is defined as a single .html or .php document. Pop-up windows used to display pictures do not count
towards page totals. Once a website package/size has been chosen and price agreed upon, any additional web
pages added will be billed at a rate of $50 per page and added towards the total cost of the web design project.
1 - 5 pages ……….. $500,
