After we have established the general structure of the website design and the objectives behind its creation (type of content, number of pages, etc.), we will have to create a detailed budget estimate, which will include the costs and the estimated time of completion for the project at hand.
We calculate our pricing on estimated hours that will be given to your project. ($30 USD per hour.) Our base price is $3,000 dollars as most projects take at least 12 full days to finish. Our base price is firm, even though we may spend more hours on your project. We will not raise the price once set. If we need to charge more we will give you a firm price based on hours worked in all areas we will mention below.
