Congratulations on taking the steps to having a website you can be proud of and that converts visitors into customers and donors.
The information below will help you understand our pricing structure a bit more and also give you insight and information to ask any developer or designer you might be interviewing. It will also give you the important questions to ask yourself so you know what you’re looking for.
At H&E Marketing Solutions we recommend interviewing at least 3 different companies to understand what they can offer and make the best choice for you. This is a one-on-one relationship and is a big investment for your business. You’ll want to find the right company that you can work well with and that can support your goals for your business.
Here are some questions you can ask potential companies.
How much work do I want to put into this project?
As mentioned above, any website build is a relationship. That means both parties need to put in the work in order to meet deadlines that are agreed upon. Yes, the more you do within the process will lower the price of your overall project. However, if you take on more than you and reasonably handle then you might slow down the process which can lead to a decrease in sales and donations.
How much do you already have ready to go so the project can get started right away. By understanding these elements it will help you figure out what additional expenses might be involved with your website build.
- Who is going to write the copy (the words) on your website? Will that be you or will you need to hire a copywriter? Having this done prior to the design process will help with cost and timeliness.
- Do you already have your basic branding put together? Having your logo, brand colors, fonts and some ideas of imagery you like will really help speed along the design process and minimize revisions (which can be costly).
- What type of photography will you use? We definitely recommend having images direct from your location showcasing what you do and how you do it. Stock images can work from the beginning but investing in your own brand photography can be really impactful.
- What are your short term and long term business goals? This will help you determine the functionality that your website needs. Being able to clearly identify the elements that are most important will help you in getting a quote that supports the goals. This can include things like email marketing or eCommerce or online course/membership software.
What if I change my mind during the process and need to add additional features or pages?
Most developers will have a clause for situations just like this. Your agreed upon contract should specifically line out the deliverables you've agreed to. Anything that's added will be an additional expense. It's perfectly normal for things to change throughout the process. Depending on the company you use they may add those elements at an hourly rate or it might be an additional product fee you get quoted on.
Who purchases the domain and who has the hosting?
What happens after launch?
What is their payment plan?
Websites are a big investment. Many companies have different ways you can pay it down during the process. We have several options for our clients. 50% down, 30% at launch and 20% after our 2 week post launch period. We also offer payment plans that take place over the course of the year. You'll typically pay a little more overall if you go that route but it can be a great way to make it more affordable and get exactly what you need.
