Affordable website design packages
1. Website/blog Starter Kit: only $297
A professionally designed layout, installed and hosted on your own domain (e.g., yourcompany.com), ready in as little as five business days, for a fraction of the price others charge.
Pretty comfortable online? Just need a little help getting past the scary technical set-up stuff? Then this is the package for you. I create your website. You just add the content (words, pictures,graphics, etc.)
- Up to 10 pages (Home, What We Do, Who We Serve, About, Contact, etc.
- Blog (optional)
- Contact form
- SEO, anti-spam and anti-hacker security software
Includes complete step-by-step instructions and videos showing you how to create add and edit copy, insert photos, add pages — all the most common website tasks. Package does not include design customization, copywriting, or technical support, although all are available for a modest extra fee.
Note: This low-price package requires web hosting from one of my affiliated providers, and does not include their monthly hosting charge (as little as $7.95 per month, but I’ll get you a nice discount — the first month for only a penny. Yeah, one penny.)
Already have web hosting you’re happy with? No problem, but I’ll have to charge you a $47 setup fee.
2. The Complete Website: only $997
All the above — installation, domain registration and hosting — but without the DIY. Instead, I DIFY — Do It For You.
This package also includes lots more:
- Up to ten website pages: Home, Services, About, Contact, Blog, etc. I’ll create them and include placeholder text and images so it’s even easier for you to edit them. Heck, I’ll even upload your logo, if you have one.
- A blog, unless you don’t want one.
- Professionally designed layout, design and color scheme. Thousands (both free and paid) to choose from. If you like, I’ll recommend three or four good matches your needs.
- Custom email setup, e.g., you@yourcompany .com, for that professional image. (Yes, you still use your favorite email program.)
- A contact form so visitors can… you know, contact you, ask questions, invite you out for mojitos, whatever.
- Basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Enough to get you noticed by Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. (Heavy-duty SEO Copywriting is also available.)
- Security software to protect your website from hackers, spammers and other undesirables.
- (Optional) Customer sign-up form to build your mailing list and follow-up via email. Marketers say, “The money’s in the list” and your own in-house customer list can be absolute gold.
You’ll also receive complete step-by-step instructions, including video tutorials, on how to do the most common tasks: Add/delete/edit pages, blog posts, etc. (Don’t worry, WordPress makes it pretty easy.)
Two hours of technical support and design customization are also included (a $150 value). Still stuck? Need more help? Additional assistance is available at my standard hourly rate.
