PRICING

Basic New Website Packages &
Website Maintenance Plans

I believe in complete transparency with my pricing and offerings so below you’ll find my basic price list to give you an estimate of the costs you can expect before you request your free quote from me (which I encourage you to do here).

I will never start work on your project until I have received written approval of the quote I have supplied to you.

First, please read the following important information about what my website design packages and maintenance pricing includes and does not include so we are ‘on the same page’.

MODIFICATIONS OR ADDITIONS

Any modifications or additions to the below packages will result in revised pricing.
Please request a no-obligation free quote from me below and I will let you know the price you can expect.
In fact, it is likely you will need a more customised design as a website always needs to suit your business, so I would always advise requesting a quote.

 

UNFORESEEN ISSUES / COMPLICATIONS

Unforeseen issues or complications can mean added expense that I unfortunately have to pass onto you, the client.

Examples of this could typically include:

>> A need to outsource work for custom theme designs or web development for specialised functions you request
>> Additional premium or full version software plugins that your site requires (e.g. shopping cart software)
>> Extra time spent troubleshooting unanticipated software conflicts (which most are)
>> Issues encountered with the server your website is located on (through the ISP – internet service provider)
>> If you decide you would like something redesigned or setup differently from what we originally agreed upon
during our detailed pre-design consultations.

I can assure you I will provide a revised quote for any additional expenses I encounter that need to be passed on,
as well as detailed explanations of what has happened so all is transparent and there are no surprises
at the end of the job.

I know you will understand, too, that if you change your mind on something we discussed and agreed upon
it is only fair that you will be charged for the extra time it takes me to complete the revision.

I can easily accommodate changes and I will advise extra charges before starting any additional work,
but I want to be clear this is the way I work and I trust you will find this to be fair if you choose to hire me.
