Web Design / Programming

It is very easy to be confused by all of the companies out there offering design and programming services. Some companies charge what seem to be outrageous fees. Others are so cheap, you wonder how they do it.  We strive to maintain more than reasonable costs for our customers and ask as you consider/compare us to other companies that you remember that if you are considering a website to enhance your business, do you want to take a chance?  This is YOUR business, and when you are dealing in "cheap", most of the time you get what you pay for. However, it definitely pays in the long run to shop around if you feel companies are too high.

Hourly rates for companies will vary depending on the programming, be it HTML, Scripting or Flash. Our rates are highly competitive, and approximately 30-50% lower than most companies both in the East Texas area, as well as all over the United States.

In our experience, we can normally bring a newly designed, standardly programmed website onto the web in 4-6 weeks, depending on the existing workload and complexity of the sites. Simple sites can normally be up in a week. Complex sites can take up to 3-4 months.   Most website designs / setups start at about $500.00 on the low end to mid range of about $2500.00+ plus the cost of the domain name and hosting.  More complex sites, such as shopping carts, may cost more.

Content costs can be reduced significantly by having verbiage already proofed and ready to go.

We require our customers to make a $60 deposit and fill out a Website Interview (sent upon receipt of the $60 deposit) prior to the start of a project.  Once we have received the interview back, we will go over it, make notations, email you with any questions we might have, then set up an appointment to go over the interview. 

We will go over the interview with you, then in approximately a week, we will present a proposal with estimated costs for the project.  A 50% deposit is required prior to the start of the project. 

This process saves time and money, and your deposit will be applied to our quote, should you choose to accept it. 

As long as no major changes are required during the development, our estimate will not change.  Extreme changes may increase the final cost.  Hosting costs are not included in website development.  Hosting costs are your "rental" costs for your internet web space, similar to what you would pay in office rent - only less!

For customers who need to have us manage their site for them, we have monthly maintenance plans that can significantly reduce costs.  Click here to see our Maintenance Plan Information.
