Services and Fees







Website Design and Development

Website development costs vary greatly depending on the size and sophistication of the site and the demands made by content requirements, i.e. custom graphics, imagery, database architecture and programming implementation.

Listed below are the individual elements that are part of every WebMasters' website, along with a brief explanation of each.

 

 

Site Design and Layout 

  • Site layout - organization of page hierarchy and associated links.
  • Text and image layout - graphics, paragraph, and margin formatting.  May or may not include graphical text, columns, or tables.
  • Custom color scheme - background graphic and text colors designed to compliment existing client logo and/or other materials received from client.



Graphic Design and Manipulation

  • Main graphic for home page - based on materials received from client.
  • Graphical headers or navigational icons.
  • Dynamic graphical elements - animated graphics or icons.
  • Scanning and touch-up of photos.
  • Image optimization. (minimizing file size of each image)



HTML Implementation

  • Test copy and in-line graphics implemented with page formatting, as determined in layout design.
  • Hyperlinks to other pages, external sites or e-mail addresses.
  • Browser compatibility checks to ensure site functionality in a variety of popular browsers.



Information Forms

All forms are formatted to match the rest of the site and include a cgi script which automatically emails results to your email account and provides a confirmation page to your site visitor.

( markup wizards )

A basic information form includes data fields for "Name", "Address", "Phone", "Fax", "E-Mail", and a box for suggestions.



Custom Programming

Includes Perl, PHP, CGI, Java, C, C++, Delphi and other Rapid Application Development Programming.
