Custom-Designed Websites

Starting at $3,000.00 $2,000.00

For a website that truly represents how unique you are.

Your website must project a professional and accurate image of who you are, what you do best and why prospects should choose you over your competitors.

We’ll help you achieve these goals by creating a unique website you’ll be proud of. You’ll be involved in the design process and your site will be equipped with all the bells and whistles you need, including e-commerce, image galleries, blogs, social media, multiple languages, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Google Analytics, etc.

Once your site is live, we’ll hand you the ‘keys’ and knowledge to update it on your own. Of course, you can also hire us to maintain your site if you’re too busy running your business!

Who this service is for:

This service is right for you if you fall in one or more of these categories:

  • You understand the importance of projecting a professional image and you want to impress your visitors with your online presence.
  • You need a website that doesn't look like your competitors' websites and that highlights your core strengths.
  • You need a website that looks good on various screen widths and resolutions, including mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.
  • You would like to update your site in-house (adding new images, text, pages, etc.) without acquiring specialized technical skills.
  • You want to sell your products or services online and/or need a platform to promote your company.

This service is NOT for:

  • Clients with a budget lower than $2,000.
If this is you, unfortunately we can't provide you with a custom-made, professionally-designed website within your budget, but we could help you get a basic yet professional website up and running with our one-on-one assistance services. The main difference is that your website would use a "template" look that wouldn't be unique.

What custom-designed websites involve:

In order to develop custom-designed websites, we normally go through the following process:

  • We meet with you and discuss your needs and requirements to make sure this is the best solution for you.
  • We develop a sitemap that illustrates which pages will be created and how they are connected to each other.
  • We draft a wireframe for each page that requires a different layout. These wireframes are an essential step to ensure we agree on every component these page templates should have (navigation, video, image, text, widgets, etc.) before we start the design process.
  • We provide you with a previously-agreed-upon number of design options for each of the page templates.
  • You select one design and we improve upon it.
  • Once the design is finalized, we start the coding and theme development process. At this point, we will help you with any domain name/hosting/email account purchases or help you upgrade your hosting if needed.
  • If desired, we can upload a personalized “coming soon” placeholder on your server while we build your site.
  • Once the website is coded, we populate a few pages on a development server and thoroughly test it on various browsers and devices to ensure it displays properly. If needed, we can also run a focus group at this time to see if small improvements can be made to the site.
  • We populate the rest of the pages.
  • We copy the development files over to your server, test it again and go live.

With one of our professional custom-designed websites, your business will shine… online!

Costs:

Our custom websites start at around $4,000, and increase depending on the features/functionality you need for your site.

For example, custom-designed websites with a shopping cart that adjusts to fit various screen sizes on mobile devices would likely start at $8,000.

The cost posted here (starting at $3,000, on sale at $2,000) is used to cover the down-payment for the development of our custom-designed websites. The balance is due upon completion, which is defined as when we reach complete client satisfaction.

Please contact us to book an appointment and we'll provide you with a quote based on your exact needs.

Timeline:

The timeline will vary based on what you'll be providing us with, the number of design options, page templates/layouts, pages of content we'll have to input, desired browser support, etc.

An exact timeline will be provided to you as part of our quote, but a rough estimate would be 4 to 16 weeks.

Booking and Payment Process:

  1. You book the initial consultation (for free — you don't owe us a penny until you accept our formal quote — see step 4).
  2. We meet to discuss your existing site (if applicable) and requirements for your new site.
  3. You send us your hosting info (if applicable) and any material/information discussed during the initial consultation so we can determine the amount of work to be completed.
  4. We provide you with an official quote. If you decide to proceed, we sign a formal contract and you pay us a $2,000 deposit (by purchasing this service online or by cheque).
  5. We do the work. You review it and we tweak it and adjust it until all requirements are met (as detailed in our contract).
  6. Once the site is live and you are 100% satisfied, we send you an invoice for the balance.
