What do websites cost?
This is not easy to answer and be very leery of any firm that just gives you a quick answer. Our prices depend on so many factors, it’s impossible to say until we understand what you are looking for.
To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, fill our short online form so we can better understand what you are looking for. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure.
If you talk to a web developer who gives you an instant quote, run away! Imagine telling someone you want a car and having them immediately giving you a price for that car without knowing what kind of car you are looking for. The same goes for building web sites. Depending on the features you want for your web site, the cost can be anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few million.
Why should we hire DBM Management?
- We build powerful websites that work on all devices at affordable prices.
- We emphasize simplicity.
Some firms love to build complicated sites that only they can fix. Not us. We use solid tools that will effectively accomplish a task but are not overly complicated. Good solid well built sites load faster, are easy to use and are less prone to problems.
- We are friendly.
Most of our clients have fun working with us. We make the web design process easy and pleasant. We speak in plain English, not techno-babble. And we love what we do for a living.
- We only charge you when we do work for you.
Seems kinda obvious, right? Ask other web developers -- some insist on maintenance contracts that require you to pay them even when you don't need any work on your site. Or charge you for a full hour for something that takes 15 minutes.
- We're honest.
Our business has grown word-of-mouth and we intend to continue growing this way. We'll treat you fairly and do a great job so that you'll want to continue working with us after your site has launched. And, we want you to tell all your friends and colleagues about us.
- You're the boss.
We'll give you options and the tools and information to make good choices. We'll give you our recommendations, but ultimately, every decision about your website is yours.
Another company says they can build a web site for us for $600. Why shouldn’t we use them?
We’ve seen those ads on the web, too. Be wary of anyone who says they’ll build you a web site or sell you a car (here we go with the car analogy again) for $600. There’s a possibility they’ll take your money and run. What’s more likely is that they’ll take your money and then build your site with a very cheap template. They may have a lot of templates to choose from, but they’ll all be rather generic. They’ll ask you for five pages of text and then slap it into a template and that’s it. You can’t have custom graphic design; you can’t have any interactivity; your site won’t be optimized for search engines and it will look like a $600 site.
Will I have a say in the graphic design process?
Absolutely. Our goal is to please you. We can’t do that without your input. If there are other sites with a design style that you would like to emulate, we can do that. If you have a logo or brand collateral that you’d like us to work around, that’s no problem. We’ll be sure your new site will be a consistent and integral part of your overall brand.
Does DBM Management provide copywriting services?
Sure do - that is part of our marketing package and we are more than willing to help with the copywriting anytime you want.
Does DBM Management provide web hosting services?
Again we sure do and in fact we perfer to use our hosting solution because we know it will be handled professionally and it's affordable.
