Let's get started

We get it. You don't want to spend an arm and a leg getting your website up and running. That is why we offer many different options for you to choose from. From a simple landing page to a custom scripted Content Management System, you can get whatever you want and need.

Before we get started, here are a few tips to save time and money during the design of your new website:

  • Pick a design - Browse around, find websites that appeal to you and make notes. It's much quicker/easier/cheaper to say ”I like {some feature} that www.{some website}.com has“ than for us to approach you with 10 different mock-ups. You don't have to know exactly what you want, but it helps to know what key aspects you want.
  • Set a budget - It is very easy to go over budget with a website. Make sure you set a realistic budget ($50 won't cut it). Generally, the cheapest design can run as low as approx $300. On top of that you will have domain and hosting fees that can range from $5 to $50 per month combined.
  • Know what you need - Do you just need a simple page to let people know you're there, or do you need a page that manages content such as blog posts, inventory, or documents? Figuring out exactly what you need the website to do for you is key. What we can do is create a site that is scalable so that you can add features if and when you need them.

With those 3 main things, you are ready to move forward. Depending on the complexity of your website, we can have it up and running in no time.

Now, to jump through a bunch of hoops...

...actually, there are no hoops to jump through. Just shoot us an email and we'll set up a free consultation. It's that easy.
