Frequently asked questions

Have questions?

How much does a website cost?

A new website will cost anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000. The cost is determined after we meet to discuss your needs and project goals. After our initial meeting I will provide you with a no obligation quote.

A deposit of 25% is required before a project is started. The final amount is due at website launch.

My hourly rate is $85 per hour.

How long does it take to create a website?

A typical website will take around 4 – 6 weeks from start to finish.

How do I edit or add content to my website?

You can either do it yourself or have me do it for you.

Doing it yourself

I create websites with software that makes it easy for my clients to make their own website edits. You simply login to the admin area of your website and make changes using the drag and drop editor. I offer training to my clients on how to edit & update their sites, and I’m just an email or phone call away when you have questions or need advice.

Have me do it for you

Some clients don’t have time for website updates and would rather pay me to do them. That’s fine too!

Can you write the content for my website?

Having really good content on your website is key! I can make strategic suggestions about the types of content that would be effective on your website, and help with editing and formatting.

I also work with talented copywriters who will have your copy needs covered, if required.

Can you source photos for my website?

Great photos can really make your website stand out. There are a few options for sourcing photos for your website:

  • We can use any existing photos you have (I can edit and enhance them for the web)
  • We can work with a professional photographer to source new photos
  • I have access to stock libraries that can deliver high quality stock images for your website at $30 each
What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, cheque, and email money transfer. I can also accept PayPal, VISA, MASTERCARD or Apple Pay.

Still have questions? Get in touch.

Testimonials

Kind words from great clients.

I have had the opportunity to work with Dave since 2013. I'm always impressed with his unique combination of technical expertise, design esthetic, strong written communications and digital savvy. Dave also provides strong strategic advice for digital marketing plans and website development. He looks at the big picture and draws the links between other marketing activities and the brand. Besides being super smart and capable Dave is collaborative, respectful and fun to work with.
