OUR WEBSITE & MARKETING PACKAGES

You get a solid, affordable, great-looking website and a complete online marketing system, plus unlimited content updates, hosting, ongoing maintenance, and weekly blog & social media posts!

Every website we build starts with the same foundation of advanced features and highly customizable design. We go through an efficient process to create the design and content, and we include tons of perks and benefits as standard. You simply choose the base package, and maybe some add-ons  (or wait until later) and choose whether you want to buy or lease.

For leased sites, the end product is the same except we host it, and the monthly payments cover all maintenance and updates.

As well, all monthly packages come with basic SEO services, and our social media starter package.

CUSTOM-BUILD / PURCHASE AVAILABLE

Our monthly payment packages are a great deal for the majority of our clients. But most people are more familiar with the concept of buying a site rather than leasing it, and we recognize some the monthly lease option may not suit everyone. So we do also build websites using the more traditional approach – where we sit down, determine your needs, come up with a proposal and a total project price, and you host and own your site entirely.

The features of the end product are the same, and much of the process will be the same. The only difference is there’s no hosting, no monthly maintenance included, and no marketing package included and you pay for the site up front. (But if you are going to be paying for all these things anyway, the packages do offer a good deal!)

Ongoing Content & Design Creation

See our Content Marketing services page and Design pages for a complete description of the various services we offer under these categories.

* Content work is billed hourly

Website technology changes fast and when the various pieces get updates, they sometimes doesn’t work with other pieces. You should budget for some maintenance, either preventative or troubleshooting.

Preventative maintenance package: This is highly recommended to keep downtime and repair costs down. We scan your site once a month, update any features, make sure WordPress is running the latest version, and check on the status of all links. Theme updates every 2-3 months unless security issues require an immediate update.
If something does go wrong, we will always happily work on the websites we’ve built if something breaks or there’s an issue or error. We have two tiers of hourly support service:

  1. Regular hourly support and maintenance: Just call or write and we can work on anything that needs attention at our regular hourly rate. We can almost always deal with something within 48hrs.
  2. On-call priority support package: This is a monthly subscription service. We will start work within 3 hrs of receiving your request during business hours, and possibly even after hours and weekends. Recommended for larger businesses and high-traffic websites.
