Website Design

 chucktransparentWebsite Design

In today’s world of the internet, many businesses and individuals desire to own their own website but do not have the time or knowledge on what it takes to go about doing it. This is where I come in. I can help you with the creation of your own website at a reasonable cost. This includes obtaining a domainname, website hosting service, designing the website with your input, and implementing the website.

Costs

WordPress

Domain Name – $7 – $13 per year, depending where obtained. (Some website hosting companies will include one deomain (free) when siging up for website hosting.)

Website Hosting – $4 – $10 per month, depending on the website hosting company.

WordPress – Free

Theme – Depends whether a free or purchased version being used.  (Purchased themes can run from around $25 – $100s)

Training – Included in our services

My Costs – My initial fee for setting up a website is $300. This includes the costs for purchasing the domain and website hosting, installation of WordPress and a starting theme. Then you will have costs involved with the actual design/layout and loading of content. For a simple sites, this will typically add another $300-$400. Of course, the more complex your site the more it will cost to implement. And, E-Commence sites can be a lot more expensive and time consuming to set up. (Domain and hosting costs based on 3-yr subscription).

I use WordPress as the framework for your website for the following reasons.

1. No web development software to buy (server based)
2. Do not need a lot of HTML knowledge. Although a little helps a lot.
3. Easy to transfer administration duties to another webmaster.
4. WordPress is free and there are hundreds of free themes and thousands of themes you can buy.
5. There are available plugins for about anything. (Note: A plugin is the individual application that makes WordPress the great web design tool that it is.)

Website Maintenance

I offer a maintenance plan is to assure that contracted websites are performing as designed on a daily basis. 

Maintenance Plan

This includes the following:

  • WordPress is kept up-to-date with the latest revisions. (Note: When a major revision to WordPress has been released, the website will not normally be updated until two weeks after the release.  This is to insure the stability of the release).
  •  All plugins are kept up-to-date. (Note: Occasionally a WordPress release will break a plugin.  When that occurs, the plugin will be updated as soon as an update is available.)
  • Website themes will be kept up-to-date.  (Note: This will depend on the theme and the number of modifications made to support the theme.  This may NOT be possible in all cases)
  • Will monitor website backups making sure that they are marked as “Good” and the backups are being performed as scheduled (includes plugin BackupBuddy for performing backups).
  • Will repair broken links that are either reported or found as a result of AinsworthEtc activities.

Monthly maintenance plan is $30 a month. Billings will be by invoice, delivered by email at month-end, and payable on receipt.  (Can also bill as a recurring charge through PayPal).

Not part of Maintenance Plan Examples

  • Adding new content such as pages and posts
  • Re-ordering of content
  • Addition or deletions of plugins (except as may have been affected through updates.)
  • HTML, CSS or PHP changes
Organizations Content

Business – attorneys, auto repair, authors, chiropractics, dentistry, musicians, real estate, upholstery(auto,home), etc.

Clubs aircraft, car, gun, motorcycle, youth, etc.

Personal – blogging, etc.

I can create a website  for about any business that you may need.  (I have already created websites for many of the organizations listed above.)

  • Blogging
  • Calendars(events)
  • Contacts
  • Downloads
  • eCommerence
  • Landing pages

When I First Started

When I first desired to own my own website I knew very little about Website Design and how to go about getting a website started. I ended up asking lots of questions which took quite a bit of time before I knew enough to even obtain a domain name. Then I had to learn about website hosting. Working with a couple other individuals we invested $5,000 dollars on a service to get us started which we ended up throwing away. About the only thing I can say about that adventure was that I learned a lot about obtaining domains, website hosting, website design, keyword, titles, etc. Believe me, you want to start with someone who is already in the business of setting up websites. Otherwise, you may just be throwing money away.

Designing a Website For You

When creating a website, you will need a domain and a company that specializes in hosting web sites and you will need to determine the theme of your website (We can help with this.).

I will be working very closely with you and will handle the following:

– Obtaining a domain name, if you do not already have one.
– Find the appropriate site for your web hosting
– Help you to decide on the theme for website
– Etc.


WordPress is used by some of the largest fortune 500 companies. Here are four of them:

The following is a quote from wordpress.org.

“WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

“The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.”
