I already have a website, but it’s a mess. Can I use my old domain for my new site? Yes. We'll rebuild your site entirely and replace your old site using the same domain name url, tags and categories. You need not fear losing your current Google Indexing status.
What kind of photos will I need? Gather together the highest quality photos you have. Unmodified .jpg, .jpeg or .png file photos are preferred. We’ll edit and optimize your photos if needed. If you don’t have any useable photos, we’ll take new photos, use stock photos, or hire a professional photographer.
I don't have a logo. Do I need one? A logo isn't necessary, but obviously, a brand with a strong identity always has a logo. In-house logo design and creation of original artwork is $75/hr.
How much will my website cost?* Design fees for small, single page scrolling sites start at $300. Website hosting (third party) runs $100-$150 per year, depending on the host service. Domain names range in price from free to $$$, and usually have yearly renewal terms. Website management services are available at additional cost, depending on the extent of the management. Most sites require little to no management, but websites always benefit from being updated from time to time.
Will you teach me to update my own site? Yes! An hour of Squarespace instruction is included with each website. You’ll learn how to make simple updates like adding or deleting items from your site. After it's launched, you can decide how much or little site management you need. Site maintenance is $60/hr, (minimum of one hour).
Would you be willing to teach me to create a whole website?* Yes. Tutoring for web design using the Squarespace system is $75 per hour. You should expect to spend at least 2-3 hours.
I hear a lot about SEO. Will you include SEO practices in my site? Yes. Search Engine Optimization is about increasing your site's standing in a browser search. Squarespace has built-in Search Engine Optimizers that make it easy to include tags to help your website get noticed. Your site will utilize every advantage available.
What are my responsibilities, before we can get started? Gather together any logos (original artwork), branding or marketing materials as well as all quality photos you have for this project. If you don't have these things, not even photos, no problem. We can get photos later. Find some websites you like. What, in your opinion, makes a good website? Remember, you absolutely can have a website you love.
