From pricing to expectations, we believe in being super transparent. If you couldn’t find the information you’re looking for here, please send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.
Some of the basic questions we normally request for quotation includes:
- A site map that outlines all the pages that the website needs to have. We need this information to know how much design and development work that will involve.
- The number of language versions needed for the website
- Special functions the website need to perform, other than simply displaying texts and images. Typical example would be: appointment booking engine, event sign up feature, membership feature, etc
- Timeline / deadline that we are expected to meet
Sure! In most website design projects, the workflow normally goes like this:
- Planning: We gather from you information on what functionalities your new website need to have as well as your preferred style and design (~1 week)
- Homepage design: We produce the mockups of the Homepage of your new website (~1 week)
- Subpages design: Once the homepage design is approved, we moved on to produce the mockups for all the remaining pages of the website. At the end of this stage you will be able to see the design of every single pages in your new website (~1-2 week)
- Development: Once the design is approved we’ll begin the actual development of the website (~3 week)
- Testing: We’ll release the developed website for you to test as well as tomake changes base on your comments and feedbacks (~1 week)
- Launch: After everything is tested we help make your website go live
- Support: Once launched we work with you on the warranty period to troubleshoot or bug fix
It really depends on the size of the website as well as the complexity of the features required. Generally speaking it normally takes us 5 weeks to complete the desgin and development of the whole website. But this timeframe does not include the time you, as the client, take to review our work and provide us with feedbacks. From our experience, building a brochure website without any complicated functionalities would normally take 2-3 months from start to launch.
For a full website design project we take 35% at the beginning of the project; 40% after the mockup of the full website is approved and the remaining 25% right before we make the website live.
For payment method, we accept bank transfer or credit card (with 5% payment processing fee on top)
We use WordPress as our go-to CMS, it is the most powerful open source CMS in the world with a user friendly and intuitive backend which makes updating and maintaining your website much easier. WordPress powers more than 30% of the top 1,000,000 websites in the world.
There are a couple of things that we think set us apart (or at least make working with us a pleasant experience):
- Strict project management protocol. In each stage of the project a set of standard checks and controls are in place to make sure even the smallest issue or action point is attended to properly. We also keep a very consistent and regular update schedule with the client to make sure you have the most updated status of the project as well as what to expect in the next stages.
- Non-technical friendly. We understand that most of our client don’t get involved in a website project all the time so they might not be familiar or comfortable with the technical side of the project. We, therefore, make the ability and eagerness to explain or ‘translate’ technical details or requirements in a much simpler and easily understandable way one of our service quality indicators.
- Thorough and visionary project scoping. When it comes to complex website requirements, we know what questions to ask in order to understanding clearly what it is that is expected to be delivered. There is rarely any surprise in the projects that we manage, either for us or for the client.
- Flexible and accommodating. We understand that it is impossible for you to specify every single tiny requirement in a project so we always try to be extra flexible. The last thing we want is having to ask you to pay for anything more than the original project fee.
