Frequently Asked Questions
Please read all of the questions below. If you feel you need more information or clarification, or if you think of any questions to add to the list, contact The Dancing Iguana here!
What is the cost of the service?
The cost of a website similar to this one is $499 USD. You have the option to pay half upfront and the remainder on delivery, or the full amount upfront. The cost for more complex websites is negotiable on an individual basis, but I assure you it will be reasonable! For your convenience (and mine!) we accept Paypal and all major credit cards….easy!
How do we get started?
It goes something like this: you send me a message via the Contact link and we initiate an introduction (by email or phone) and discuss what you are looking for. If you are local we can meet, otherwise I suggest using Skype. If we decide we’re a good fit and you wish to proceed, choose your payment option and click the Paypal button. You have the option of paying in full or half now, half on delivery. I will start work on your site as soon as I have confirmation of payment. If you already have a layout or design in mind we can use that as a starting point. Otherwise I will come up with one and present it to you. The whole thing should take about a week.
How long should it take?
It takes about a week to do a site similar to this one. More complex work could take a little longer.
What is included?
For your hard-earned dollar you get a website that fully satisfies your personal and/or business wants and needs. The site will be SEO optimized to maximize its visibility on search engines (Google in particular). It will also be responsive, meaning it will self adjust to maximize readability on any device (computer, tablet, or phone). We work together during the process to ensure things proceed on track to your satisfaction, and you do not pay the balance until you are satisfied with, and sign off on, the end result. Once you go live, I support you for 30 days, allowing ample time for any minor changes or tweaks that you may want done. I’ll also show you how to access the underlying WordPress system so that you can make changes yourself if you are so inclined. Otherwise we can negotiate a small monthly or quarterly maintenance fee and I’ll be happy to do it for you.
What is excluded?
Domain registration and web hosting are not included and run between $75 and $100 per year. Dancing Iguana will register your domain and set up web hosting as part of the basic service (you just pay the registration and hosting fees). I generally use Greengeeks as the hosting service but you can choose your own if you wish. Also, designs that are significantly more complex than this one are not included in our $299 introductory offer, but can be considered at an additional cost.
What about content?
The bulk of content for your site must be provided by you. Obviously you know much more about your personal life or business than I do. I will be happy to work with you on it, however.
