Offers for Startups et al.

Most startups are not well funded and they have to start someplace and –my– website is one of many such places.

I have a lot of competition. So I thank you for coming around while you consider if I can help you.

Like I did when first starting out most people ask Professor Google how much it costs to design and build a website and I learned “it depends” is really a truthful statement.

So Read-The-Fine-Print again and consider how many –required– tasks are –really– involved in developing even the most simple website.

Now I’ll get right to it and answer “How Much To Get Started?”

  • All web hosting service server configurations for email and FTP access to files from your computer.
  • As many email addresses as may be required will be created including forwarding configurations that may be needed.
  • Perhaps hand-coded HTML or the use of Bootstrap will be used to build static (no database) page(s) for your type of startup; the trades, sole proprietor service provider(s) etc.
  • Audios, videos, and images are provided by the client.
  • Training for use of FTP for backups included in base price.
  • No monthly maintenance fees.
  • Google Analytics and an XML Site Map will be integrated into the website. The site will be submitted to Google, Bing and Yahoo! search engines to indicate readiness for indexing.
  • Everything else not explicitly stated is optional and may incur additional costs and fees.
This is my job. I’ll work hard and long for you. If you’re having second thoughts put yourself in my shoes and take a moment to read About My Fees.

1Plugins are also called add-ons or extensions and consist of software that adds features and functions to a host program that does not typically have the same features and functions built in. Without plugins the host program would require manually writing, testing and debugging all of the programming code required to have the features and functions available to the host program.

WordPress for example is a typical host program. Elementor Pro is a typical plugin the type of which is called a “page builder.”

  • E-Commerce is the most complex and most costly type of website of all, everything about it: the hosting, the required plugins, the customization, all of it.
  • All web hosting service server configurations for email and FTP access to files from your computer are provided.
  • As many email addresses as may be required will be created including forwarding configurations that may be needed.
  • WordPress is used for E-commerce. The WooCommerce plugin is used for the shopping cart. The Elementor Page Builder plugin is also used. Many other plugins are going to be required to build the typical E-commerce website. Still, manual coding is going to be required and a lot of it.

All of the above is simply an introduction to what it takes to get started. We have —a lot— to talk about, —a lot— to plan and —a lot— to negotiate as we learn to work together. Thank you for coming this far. Let’s get started…
