Our Price Breakdown | Why we're better than the rest!
Let's face it...most web design firms will promise you a "$$cheap$$" website, ready-to-go within a few days to weeks, exactly to your specifications... only to hit you with MONTHLY FEES forever and poor service. Sometimes they're called "hosting charges" or "maintenance fees" but as a business owner, at mbbm, we feel that you should be IN CONTROL of your online presence!
That's why we take the time to build out your beautiful website, with custom design work and backend SEO among other things. We put in the sweat, blood and long hours and once it's done...we hand the website entirely over to you!
But we don't walk away. We sit down with you and teach you how to maintain and manage your website all by yourself! Don't worry, we're still here if you need help but we put you in full control!
How it all works!
1. THE GREAT MEET. We get together and figure out what you need and want. This is where we get to play the "fairy godmother" and you get to play "Cinderella" (If this reference doesn't make sense, then we'll play the "Genie" and you can play "Aladdin")
2. UNLEASHING THE BEAST. If you like us and we like you (because that's very important) then we'll send you a quote within 48 hours. At which point, we'll expect a 50% deposit to start the work. The quote you receive will include the price for our labor as well as the pricing options for your domain registration and hosting and package options.
Here's a quick breakdown of the various pricing options:
Domain Registration & Hosting which includes full ownership and DNS control and $100 in Google Adwords Advertising:
- For 1 Year: $39.95 USD
- For 2 Years: $67.90 USD <------ We Recommend This Plan!!
- For 5 Years: $149.75 USD
Website Platform Features Packages: As a developer, we can do almost anything you ask, but to prevent any bugs or glitches and still have the ability to offer your customers/clients a world-class online experience, it will cost you; but you get to decide!
- For 1 Year: $99 USD
- For 2 Years: $159 USD <------- We Recommend This Package!
Our Web Design Costs can be found HERE (but don't worry, our prices aren't final. We are humans too)
NOTE: Once you decide which hosting and platform package you'd like, we'll get to work by creating an account for you online; at which point you'll be directed to make payment for these services. THIS IS NOT PART OF OUR PRICE TO BUILD YOUR WEBSITE.
3. IF YOU BUILD IT... We'll start building your website. We use "Weebly" to build out all our commercial websites. We've used different frameworks in the past but we have found the Weebly is the best! It's a fairly simple CMS based HTML/CSS platform that we can manipulate and customize to your specifications. It's also fairly easy to manage afterwards (Don't worry...we'll show you how!) Weebly will manage your domain and provide the hosting for your website. (This makes your life and ours much easier and it save you the headache of paying a monthly fee)
4. PEEK-A-BOO. Within 1 week we'll have something to show you. We'll follow up with you via email and social media over the next few weeks to fine tune all the pages and designs and features.
5. IT IS TIME. Once we get near completion (Usually 2-3 weeks from the start date) we'll ask you to meet up with us in person. At this time, we'll expect our balance of the payment. We'll also spend 1-2 hours with you to help you navigate and familiarize yourself with the backend of the platform, so that once we leave, you'll be able to make simple changes to your website down the road (e.g. change photos, edit content, add media etc.)
6. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. Whenever you're stuck or in a bind, feel free to reach out to us: we'll help you out for FREE....FOR LIFE! All we ask is that you help us out by referring more customers!
