to determine its scope and complexity. This allows us to offer
you an intelligent projection of the cost and time required for
completion and will include a detailed written estimate for the
work to be done as well as any special information we might have
your project total does not exceed $200, you may either travel
to our office or we can come to you at our normal travel rates
(first 10 miles free, as the table below indicates).
we mention any details about our Web Packages, we should mention
a few words about how we work with web clients.
Site Content Authoring. Your Web Designer does not
write or re-write content. Your content must be supplied
to us written the way that you would like it to appear on
your web site. Any
editing, etc. must be done prior to your submission of your materials.
Site Content. Our
fees are based on you providing your content to us in electronic
format. To avoid additional charges, written materials
must be provided to us in the body of an e-mail, Microsoft Word,
WordPad or Notepad format only.
understand that if you provide your content in the form of
printed manuscripts, brochures, literature, etc. and
you wish to have us process the
information to ready it for application on your particular project,
additional costs will be incurred. Our hourly rate
will apply if we must convert photographic
or printed materials into electronic format (via scanning, retyping,
OCR, etc.). [Top]
is relatively easy for us to quote the price of one of our Special
Web Packages or any of our other services. In truth, the complexity
and volume of the content of the web sites we build vary so wildly
that it is entirely possible that the cost of the preparation and
placement of the content you provide us could exceed the nominal
Web Package or other service.
introduces two potential paths for each of our clients: 1) let
us do all of the preparation of
the content for your site; or 2) provide us with as much of the
content as possible in web- or document-ready form. We realize you have a drawing program and might even know how to use it properly. The fact is, we are ultimately
confident in our work but cannot be responsible for content you
provide to us. If your pictures are in poor shape,
no amount of processing can restore them to their original pristine
condition. If you do your own content preparation and produce less
results, the quality of your web site or printed document will
reflect it. That is something that neither of us will like. Bottom line—if you want it done right, let us do it.
When you're putting your company's web site up for the world to see it is not
the time to cut corners! [Top]

||If one of these packages doesn't fit your needs, please contact us. We're always delighted to discuss your special project. In truth, projects we complete for our clients frequently end up diverging from our suggested package deals. It's difficult to predict the future of a project no matter how humble it starts out.
|Web Statistics: Log File Analysis

If you desire more meaningful information than the above hit counter can offer, we can enroll your site in our server log file statistics analysis and reporting service. This affords detailed analysis of the habits of visitors to your site. The results of this analysis helps us modify your site to accommodate the habits of your site's visitors.
