Website Design Pricing:
Basic Packages & Ongoing Maintenance Plans

Let's cut to the chase: what's this going to cost you?

While it is critical to consider first whether a freelancer is the right match for your job, I am also mindful of the fact that budgets are critical for small business owners.

In the spirit of offering you transparent pricing before you get in touch, here is an idea of the basic pricing for websites I design.

*** Disclaimer and Important Information about my Website Design Packages and Work before you read on:

  • Please bear in mind that anything extra required, or any modification to the packages below, will need to be quoted on and accepted by you before I start work on your website. I am happy to provide you with a detailed quote for your complete website design if you feel you require anything additional to the two packages below or a completely customised design.
  • If I find that anything extra is required that I didn't foresee during the initial consultation process (i.e. additional outsourcing for custom designs, additional software plugins, etc.) OR if you decide you would like something different or extra than originally requested, I will provide you with a revised quote including any additional cost that is needed so you can be assured there will be no surprises at the end of the process. Please note that this does not mean if you change your mind about anything I have already worked on that you won't be charged for the work already completed! If you want something changed that was not in the original agreement between us, then I know you will understand that I need to charge for the work that has already been completed (unless the misunderstanding is mine, of course). But I will discuss amply with you, and I can just about always come up with a negotiation that suits both parties! I just want you to be aware of this so we are on the 'same page' during the process.
  • You can be assured that I will never start on any work for you until you have given your written approval to start the job.

 

Basic Website
Starter Package

Recommended for:

  • Any small business getting started online.
  • Hospitality businesses who usually only want to display menus and opening hours.
  • Small health professionals - typically listing information about their modality, health information and booking information.
  • Healers, new age businesses, speakers, work-from-home professionals and most solo-preneurs.
  • Small home businesses or bloggers who intend on earning income from affiliate relationships.

My Basic Starter WordPress Website includes:

  • Up to 5 web pages (typically 'Home', 'About Us', 'Contact Us', and two custom pages as chosen by you), built using the WordPress platform.
  • Free WordPress theme which matches your business image as closely as possible.
  • Setup of blog (recommended, but optional).
  • Basic Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) to help your website get indexed in online searches.
  • Professionally written copy for all pages, based on the information you provide.
  • Online contact form to protect your email address from spam.
  • Setup of basic free plugins to protect website from brute-force attacks, spam, and other threats.
  • Easy future editing with included block builder (but I also offer maintenance services for security monitoring, design edits, etc.).

Basic Starter Package price starts at $590 AUD.

Price of this package does not include:

  • Website hosting (i.e. where your website is stored - monthly costs are typically on average $10 per month - payable annually - approx. $120 per year).
  • SSL Security Certificate (optional but I very highly recommend one due to Google's traffic preferences for websites with SSL - is sometimes included in a hosting plan and I do my best to locate the best value option for you).
  • Domain name registration (i.e. your 'www' address - typically costs $29 annually).
  • Ongoing website maintenance costs (e.g. security updates, backup of data, restoration of data, etc) - anything required will always be quoted on an as needed basis. A monthly maintenance plan can also be set-up for a small fee to keep your website secure and functional.
  • Any specific WordPress theme you may require for particular imagery or functionality (a free theme is already included, though, and will be as closely matched to your needs as possible).
  • Any specific plugins, software or applications you require for your website (where possible, free plugins to meet your needs are sourced but if you have specific needs, often paid 'premium' versions will be required - you will be advise at the time of quoting if this is a possibility).
