Custom Design – Simple Fees
eSearing Creative offers a low cost, simple fee for for creating or updating your HTML/PHP standard website. Generally the pricing for development is $49 per page (or hourly). Additional charges apply for add-ons, photography, and image management. I try to find ways to save you money on hosting options and free features included in your hosting package.
I pass through fees I encounter during development at no additional markup. I quote each job independently, and only charge for actual production time. I bill for production hours, not research or testing hours. All pricing will be discussed and documented before work begins.
Minimum site fee $490 (includes upto 10 pages, does not include hosting).
Custom Design Maintenance Costs
Periodically you may need your site to be updated. I often teach site owners how to manage their own content so my services are not needed. However, if you are uncomfortable with the technology or have more important use of your time, then I am happy to maintain your site for my an hourly wage($50/hr) and will generally bill quarterly.
All other costs will be quoted during initial meeting or as they are discovered. There are many designers and developers out there with a wide range of pricing. I charge what I feel is a fair price for my time and effort.
