|Pricing For A Web Site
When someone asks, "How much would a Web Site cost me for the World Wide Web or Internet??", it is like asking the question, "How much would transportation cost me??". A vehicle for transportation could be anything from a bicycle to a fine luxury car. There would be many questions we would have to answer before the true cost could be set. We have built a "questionnaire" as follows:
- Do you already have the hardware it takes?
- Do you already have a computer?
- Do you already have a printer?
- Does your computer have a modem?
- Are you already on the Internet?
- Would we be responsible for collecting orders and forwarding them to you?
- Do you have an Email address?
- Would you need another Email address or maybe one or more alias Email addresses?
- About the Web Page itself:
- Do you already have an idea of how you want the page laid out?
- Do you have the text in electronic format or just a hard copy of it?
- How many different screens/pages will there be?
- Do you want pictures?
- If so, how many?
- Are there pictures which need to be scanned into the computer?
- Are the pictures already in a .gif or .jpg computer format?
- Will any of the pictures be thumb-nailed?
- What color or graphic do you want for your background?
- Will we need to add sounds to the Web Site?
- If so, how many?
- Do you have the electronic files?
- Will we need to record anything ie. Voice Bites?
- How many hypertext links will we need to program?
- Will we need to incorporate an Auto-responder?
- Is there to be a limited time for the Web Page to be activated?
- Will you need forms built?
- Will there be on-line purchasing?
- Will we need to help you set up a Card Merchant Account?
- Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express, or Other?
- Do you need to lease the card machine?
- Will we need to help you set up an Electronic Merchant Account? (Secured Purchasing?)
- Will we need to help you set up an Auto-Check Approval Account?
- Will you want to have your Web Page set up as a Virtual Domain?
- Will there be a deadline to get this on the Internet?
- Do you want us to register your Web Page with different Search Engines or Electronic Malls?
- Which Search Engines and how many?
- Which Electronic Malls and how many?
When we have discussed all of these questions, we would be able to give a quote and proceed from there.
