Here are the details about my web design services. Click on a question to learn more. Contact me with any questions.
I started in 2003, first as an instructor and then while working at different jobs. These are my first two commercial client websites as an independent designer.
Included in the cost of any website I design are the following:
I service anybody who wants a new website. I can also re-design or edit an existing site, which I can make possible by arranging the transfer of the site to my web hosting provider.
Although I could design a website for anyone globally, I prefer a client base in and near Southern Alberta, Canada. I like meeting potential clients in person in order to get the best sense of you and your business, organization, or institution and get the best vision for a website. This would also reduce development time because many questions would be answered beforehand. Besides, do you want a stranger developing one of your most important marketing tools?
While there, I can also take professional photos for your site – upon request – which will make your site even more unique.
Whether or not I meet you in-person, I will use e-mails, phone calls, video chats, etc. to make sure everything is done to your liking.
I can design a basic logo that is text-based. I can turn a more complex sketch that you provide into a logo; I’m just frankly not creative enough to design such a logo from scratch. For more advanced logos with intricate designs or artwork, I would suggest hiring a graphic designer who specializes in logo design. Contact me with an idea and I’ll be honest about what I can and cannot deliver. Here are examples of logos I’ve created.
I can also create basic animations, like that squiggly line you see moving across the screen – tasteful little touches that will add more life to your website.
No customer is too “small” or unimportant and neither is the size of your site, whether single- or multi-page, or whether you want it to be basic or more sophisticated. You might say that Sight & Sound is your small-business specialist! I also regard the small town/rural customer as equally as the big-city customer.
I can set up your social media pages and profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Google, and Tripadvisor, but you will be responsible for updating them. I will show you how to do this yourself unless you want to pay me for updating them.
I do not provide social media advertising services, such as creating and managing ad and e-mail marketing campaigns.
Sight & Sound will design a quality site for an initial cost that reflects your specific needs and a reasonable annual hosting fee. Here is a breakdown:
In other words, Sight & Sound doesn’t offer “package deals” or one-size-fits-all options like “$___ per page.” Every site is different and so every site should cost different.
A flat rate could mean a small site costing what a larger site does. And beware if somebody offers you a great deal up front for a larger site – you will likely be charged higher hosting or maintenance fees to make up the difference, costing you more in the long run.
Here are other costs, no matter who you hire to design your site:
For only $49, I can provide a complete Website Health Checkup.
