What's the cost ?  - How we charge for our time.

Perhaps less than you might think !  We understand that price is always important.
We can work with you to accommodate most any budget. 

We often produce great results with smaller budgets than Clients expect. Of course, final cost depends upon complexity and functionality.

Whatever your budget situation, we will work with you to accomplish your objectives for your website.

Some Clients prefer to work with us on an hourly rate, without a contract. Others are uncomfortable with an hourly rate and require a fixed price. We have also worked at an hourly rate with a "not to exceed" maximum price.

We require an initial deposit to commence work on a project. Depending upon the size and duration of the project, we typically require an initial deposit of 25%. For larger projects we would require a smaller %.

Progress payments are due during the project development. Final balance is due after completion.

No contract required !

 

We have worked with most of our Clients without the formality of a contract.

Some Clients are uncomfortable with a contract for a website development project because it is not a familiar area where they have had experience with what needs to be part of a contract.

Clients who have worked with us without a contract have been very satisfied.

We receive excellent references from Clients who worked with us in this fashion.

You don't need a Lawyer and legal fees to do business with us. However, if your organization requires a contract, we can usually make that work.

Website Databases

Database uses on a website can range from very simple to very advanced.

Often we will simply want to provide "catalog style" information such as product descriptions and pictures. A simple Database will meet those requirements.

Alternatively we may want to provide product pricing and other details that change frequently. Then we will provide a more sophisticated "back end administrative area" where you can mange the data in the Database.

This "back end administrative area" can be used SECURELY from any web browser by any authorized member of your staff. No technical knowledge required.

No need for a technical staff or software installations on your local computer. We do all the technical stuff to make your Database run SECURELY in your web browser, from any location with Internet connection.

We include on this website, examples of both simple and advanced Database implementations that are managed by our Clients, who have no technical knowledge of Databases and have no technical staff.    See examples here.
