Large Projects

All projects are done at an hourly rate of $49 per hour. Everyone has different needs, so after discussing your goals & details for the site, I will offer an estimate. A 50% deposit is required to start building (based on the estimate) and the remaining 50% (adjusted up or down based on actual hours spent) will be billed at the end of the project before release of final materials. No need to stress about hidden fees or bloated budgets, if new request are made I will advice you throughout the process as to what new features entail or if revisions will push us far beyond the estimate.

Ongoing work

For smaller tasks (such as updates) or for ongoing work (monthly assignments as a regular subcontractor) we can bend the rules a little to make working together easier, at which case I will bill at the end of the assignment and payment will be due within 30 days, with late fees thereafter. Please pay on time :)

Sample projects rates

No two sites are the same. Every client will bring to the table a different set of priorities. Whether the project is large or small, well funded or on a shoe-string, I can work with you to find the best tactic. Communication is very important, it is best to let me know if you are after a 'Honda' or a 'Ferrari', as most problems can be tackled in various ways with various possible results. I will help you make these decision during the planning stages.

  • A simple site with just a few pages of static content will start around $2500 including design work and development. Higher end sites can go up to around $10,000.
  • If you already have the graphic design done (PSD to HTML) then the cost is about half of the above depending on the complexity and number of pages.
  • 95% of my clients choose to have their sites built on top of the Wordpress content management system. This allows you to make easy updates, to blog (very important for SEO) and to leverage the wonderful free ecosystem of plugins and extensions available for the platform. The upfront cost is higher, but in the long run the price is lower, the performance is better and the flexibility to easily grow is unmatched by any other technology. Most custom Wordpress CMS sites start at $3500 including design, development, deployment and basic SEO. If you have the PSD design already done, then the price is about half. For the highest-end sites, budgets of $10,000 - 30,000 are the norm.
  • SEO is harder to estimate, a code audit will need to be done at which point a strategy will be formulated. If its on a site I personally built then the foundation is sound and the set up cost will be minimal; if I did not build the site, then things will depend on the technology used and the skill of the previous developer, sometimes I can tweak things, sometimes a complete remake will be needed to do things right. After the static code is setup + optimized, it is highly recommended to maintain an ongoing SEO campaign; I can train you to maintain it in-house or you may hire me to do so with my expertise, ongoing rates start at $350 per month and up depending on how aggressive you wish to attack the market.
  • Need a cutting edge web application? I can hire sub-contractors to make the right team for your start up.
