You probably employ a mix of digital strategies, working alongside a substantial investment in traditional media. Multiple engagement strategies drive visitors to your website. This by itself strengthens your Google ranking. Yet you can't afford to disregard SEO because you don't just want to be on page one of category searches. You need to rank number one.

This pricing tier contemplates creation a highly advanced, state-of-art, scratch-baked website. Your marketing leadership group will provide almost all the content and the creative guidance.

How Much Does It Cost?

Project pricing is always based on projected job time. We gladly offer fixed quotes in cases where the work is well defined, and the client possesses a reliable baseline level of technical proficiency. Complexity drives cost, pure and simple. Simple projects are going to cost a whole bunch less than big, ambitious complicated ones.

"Work" has a broad definition which can include creative and strategic thinking on your behalf. We get paid to have good ideas for customers. Insight and inspiration are work products. 

Complex, open-ended tasks are billed hourly. We offer a free one hour of initial consultation for all project requests. For hourly or contract work, non-profits receive a 15 percent across-the-board discount.

For new websites, if we need to do only minimal graphic design and copywriting (and thinking), that will lower your price dramatically.

No two jobs cost the same, because every job is different. But at left are are some typical price points to give you a ballpark feel for what you're getting into.

• Execute your design with your copy and your graphics: $675 for the homepage, $275 per each inside page. Includes (if you need it): domain registration, unlimited company webmail accounts, submission to search engines and testing across all major browsers.

• Important caveat: All content must be production-ready, properly formatted and ready for upload to the website. Preparatory editing of copy and images will incur added labor charges.

The base price point also buys you a site which will work on all major smartphones and tablets. For us to customize the mobile view for a one-of-a-kind user experience will cost extra. If you want us to do everything from scratch, starting from a blank page, we will have to negotiate a price based on projected additional hours and reasonable limits to the refinement process. Three "rounds" of changes after the first draft of the website design is the norm.

Price for the addition of complex interactive functionalities will be based on the complexity of whatever you are trying to accomplish. It also will depend, again, on your level of in-house skills.

• Say for example we build an e-commerce website for you. Do you or someone on your team have the skills to format and deploy all the products after we install and configure the framework? Or will you need us to do that for you?

• Say you want to add SEO to your website project. How much about SEO do you understand? How competitive is your market niche? Do you know if your competitors are playing the game and playing it well? Or do you need us to do some scouting around for you?

• Say you're launching a new venture. In your own mind you understand its value and utility very well. But you're not sure how to sell it to potential customers. Hours we invest coming up with a solution add to the project price.

People out there in the market advertising fixed prices for web design are doing so based on offering very limited services. We try to be up front about all the variables which can affect price. You will receive a detailed Statement of Work setting forth exactly what you are hiring us to do and how much it is going to cost.

The best way to start the process of obtaining a quote is to use our service request form. Without knowing the scope and complexity of your project, we can't begin to estimate price.

You will find that our pricing is highly competitive for website design and development in metropolitan Milwaukee. Be mindful that you may have some unrealistic expectations based on living in a media environment saturated with false ads for "free" websites which in fact are never free and which offer little or no value to clients serious about promoting their businesses.

No two jobs cost the same, because every job is different. But here are some typical price points to give you a ballpark feel for what you're getting into.
