GOOD, CHEAP, FAST... PICK ALL THREE.
How do we make that work?
We build websites based on a single theme. That means that we start our work with you several steps ahead of most web designers. It also means we relieve you of the back and forth emails and phone calls that are normally part of the design process (not to mention a whole lot of Paradox of Choice).
Net result? You get a rock-solid, user-editable, search-engine friendly website...
for under $1,000...
in one week.
Good. Cheap. Fast.
ALL OUR SITES FEATURE
$947 soup to nuts. Less if you want to do some of the lifting yourself. And you'll continue to save, since our Wordpress-based sites allow you edit and add content yourself. See our pricing options below.
How does one week sound? We get it - you need to get this done and get back to your business. We make it as easy for you as possible. We turn it around fast. One week or less from the time we receive your content.
You really want to save some money? Feel like rolling up your sleeves a bit? We install and setup the Studiopress theme of your choice, saving you an estimated 10 hours setup time and a minimum of $99.95 on the purchase of the (required) Genesis framework and theme. We provide you a clear, concise guide showing exactly how to add and edit each and every bit of content on your site.
Your website, done. You provide us the content - the words and images you want to use - and we give you a website. Don't have images? We'll research stock photo options based on your descriptions.
We install the Genesis Framework, the Altitude Theme and fill it in with the content you provide. Within a week, your new website will be live.
Email Setup, Domain Registration, Google Analytics Setup. We can handle that, too.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you only use one theme?
We're so glad you asked. 1. After years of working with design clients, we feel like we've unlocked a key to a secret door. The truth is that most clients don't really want to deal with having their website designed. But they are used to being in charge of their business and know they need to make decisions. But making web design choices is usually completely out of their wheelhouse, so it becomes a time-drain of research to get a basic handle on what they should look for or an guessing game (and no one's comfortable carrying out a big business decision by guessing). By limiting you to a single theme, we help you focus on the aspects you know well - the content. What needs to be said and shown about your business. And we help you get that across in the most efficient way possible. 2. Using a single theme allows us to streamline the process to an amazing degree. We often hear about clients paying $2500-$4000 for a basic website and that comes with a six-month turnaround. Six months?!? That's bewildering. But it was rare even for us to finish a site in less than a month or two because of all the back and forth usually involved in the design process. Using a single theme, we cut right through that. 3. The theme we use rocks. It contains all the elements needed for a high performance website - that's actually pretty rare. 4. It looks good. Bold, clean, professional, and just a bit of panache from the parallax effect.
You only use one theme? Doesn't that mean my site will look like everyone else's?
In a word, nope. In two words, not really. The thing is, most websites look basically the same - navigation menu along the top, logo in upper left. That's a good thing. It makes it easier for all of us to get around the web. On the other hand, the colors, images, and other content on your site will dramatically change the look and feel of it. We explain this further and give examples [here].
Can you tell me how this works, step by step?
Sure! For a full Site
- You place a $300 deposit.
- We prep your site while you provide your content and other necessary information via our web form or a questionnaire you can download - you can even write your answers by hand if you prefer! (We have to charge an additional fee to transcribe it.)
- If requested, we find images for you and send them for your approval.
- We load the content into your site
- You pay the balance due and you're up and running!
For our "Headstart" package, you simply purchase the package. We get a little info from you about your webhost (if you don't have a host, we can set one up for you). That's it! We send you our guide showing how to add and edit content on your site.
Are your websites "responsive"?
Yes! They will display well on any device - desktop, laptop, phone - anything. And they pass google’s mobile friendly test.
Can I really get my site in one week?
Yep. The clock starts once we receive your content. If we're providing image suggestions for you, the clock starts once you've made your choices. In other words, we need to have everything together before we can start assembling it. This is a huge part of how we save you money.
Do I have to have a webhost? Will you set one up for me?
We can build using your existing hosting account provided it is Unix based and compatible with Wordpress (the majority are). Or we can set you up with a fresh install on wpengine.com, our preferred host (it's where pocketstudios.com is hosted). Often we can provide you with a discount for a new wpengine.com account - ask when you order.
Can't I just do this myself? If you're using a theme, can't I go buy it myself and install it?
Absolutely! We estimate (and you can find similar estimates elsewhere online) that it will take someone new to the process (but reasonably tech-savvy) around 10 hours to go through the install and setup process (depends partially on whether they already have a web host, already have WordPress installed, etc.), find and tweak images, and load your content. Plus the cost of the theme and framework. We feel like we provide great value for the work we take off your hands and the extra quality touches we bring, such as tweaking images for maximum quality / load time balance, but if you want to do it yourself, go for it!
