3) Custom graphic design
To custom design a unique web presence that meets your needs and taste often requires a designer to consult with you about your website preferences by discussing: colors, navigation menu, websites you like, and other elements. With this information, your designer will suggest design layouts and color themes for your new website. During this step, the designer typically focuses solely on the design of your landing page first (often the HOME page) because it is the most creative and labor and intensive. Other key factors contributing to the total cost of your custom web site design are the number of pages, and number of page layouts you select in steps #4 and #5 below. You can adjust the cost by changing the number of pages and page layouts (see below.)
4) How many different page layouts do you want?

A new page's layout is different than that of your landing page (or HOME page). Though the new page layout will be different, the new page would have the same theme of your Landing/Home page, in order to keep your site consistent. For an example, your ABOUT US or SERVICES page may have a different page layout than that of your landing page, but it would certainly still have the same color theme.
5) Select the number of pages you want to have in your website:
 
Example: 5
When viewers land on your HOME page, if they click on a button from your main menu or a link in your page's content that takes them to a different URL within your website, that URL would be considered a page. Common examples to consider as separate pages are the: HOME page| ABOUT US page | SERVICES page | CLIENTS' TESTIMONALS page| CONTACT US page. You can picture each of these pages as an additional door for the viewers and search engines to learn about you and your organization.
6) Programing
Programming is a necessary step to make the graphic design (in step #3, #4 and #5 above) and other features you request work consistently for you and end-users once displayed on web browsers. The cost at this step is based on the attributes you selected; you can adjust the cost figure by changing one or more of those attributes.
7) Content development --- Page content provide by:
a. Client
b. Provider

There are three types of content (text, images, and graphics) that providers will need to complete your website design optimally. You can either gather all this content for your provider to save money or have the provider produce the content for you to save time and hurdles.
Side note: If for some reason the provider you choose does not offer the services such as: content writing, logo design, banner design, etc. you can go to our Additional Services page to look for providers who specialize in these fields.
8) What kind of website do you want?
Basic Website Design (PC version only)
Mobile Responsive Website Design (for PC, Tablet, and Smartphone)
Basic website: is a site version created for desktop and laptop computer viewers. It would show on tablets and smartphones okay but will not auto reorganize its content and layouts for easy viewing on people's mobile devices. Mobile Responsive Website: is a site version designed for viewers on all devices including: desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The site will detect which device a visitor is using to view your site and auto reorganize its content and layout to make itself user-friendly on that device. Side note: A majority of consumers today access the internet using their mobile devices; so, if you intend to fully connect with your target audience on their devices you should invest in a responsive website design. However, if your budget is limited and you can't afford a responsive website design, it's better to establish your web presence sooner, rather than later, and start with a basic website.
9) When do you need this project completed?
An average 5-page informational, blog, or E-Commerce website usually takes 4 to 7 weeks to custom design and program. Some providers may charge a little extra if you want them to speed up your project and complete it sooner. Please review your expected date and be clear on this with your provider to ensure the provider you choose can deliver the project on time for you. Thank you and all the best!
