NOTE; These are ALL bargain basement sites! Most sites on the internet
are created and designed over MONTHS of time and with much more
resources (manpower and money) than is possible for under several thousand
dollars just to start! A basic cost of $3,000-5,000 initially is common!
However, for a local business such involved sites are rarely indicated or
advisable unless or until national far reaching access and exposure are likely.
For the local small business a basic site with examples of work as well as
access and contact information is the best place to start and may be all that
is ever necessary.
Here are a few sites that I have done or am working on;
This is a four or five page contract site that I designed very quickly for
someone who wanted market exposure but nothing too fancy. Customer
provided graphic materials that needed to be scanned, edited and optimized
for the web. Several days of work all together including upload and
management. Total fee; $350
Another small one page contract site. Basic arrangement and organization
with some minimal graphics work and optimization. Upload and management.
Two days or so of work. Total fee; $300
Single page simple exposure and access site for local service business.
Graphics design, creation and optimization. Upload and management. Several
days involved. Total fee; $450
Another simple, single page exposure and access site for service business.
Complete graphics design, creation and optimization. Upload and
management. Total fee; $500
Internet friendly commerce site with lots of pages and graphics and some
bells and whistles (RealAudio files, etc.). Full design with graphics editing,
optimization and arrangement. Upload and management. Several weeks of
intensive work to launch and then regular maintainance for updating of product
and content. Total fee; ??? ($3,500 or more to start)
Full on contract site for commercial company selling locally and nationally.
Initial design and layout, art direction, scanning and editing of LOTS of images!
Time from implementation to going live was almost two months of non-stop work and
resulted in over 120 pages of content. Total fee; $3,200.
