White Pine Creative will only receive $499.00 for our labor and time to build the site. However, there are other associated costs that the client must cover. These are listed below:
- Hosting: $120.00 (Annual)
- Email: $60.00 (Annual)
- Website Theme: $62.00
- Domain Name: $10.00 (Average) (Annual)
These are normal and annual operating expenses that every website faces. You can’t escape it. For this reason, Hosting, Email, and the Domain Name purchase is set up in the clients name with the clients preferred method of payment. This is done for the obvious reason that WPC cannot make these payments for our clients annually.
Upon building the website, a client will have no more than 1 month to help WPC complete the site. The responsibility falls upon the client to provide detailed information of the business and any media/photos that should be displayed in the website. After the one month period is up, clients will be charged at rate of $35.00/hour to work on the site. It is important to give WPC all of the content needed. For any unseen circumstances the website is not completed by one month on both the clients part and/or WPC, there is usually a grace period to help get the site done. WPC does not want to profiter off our clients, we just would like the site to be done in a timely manner and not continue for longer than we think is necessary.
For the first six months WPC will provide tips and customer service to our clients insuring that by the time the 6 months are up, the client will fill comfortable enough taking full control of their site. If the client would wish to keep WPC as the primary web developer after the six month period, they can do so for $35.00/hr.
Five months after completion, the client is free to make minor changes (for free) within reason. Complete overhauls and major changes cost $35.00/hr.
