1. Do I have to pay any money up front before my website is completed? No, you do not pay any money until your website project is finished and meets your satisfaction. (The only time money is required in advance is when an e-commerce / shopping cart is being set up. This amount depends on the size of your on-line store.)

2. What if I have a fixed budget that I cannot go over the limit on for my website? If you let me know ahead of time what your budget limits are, I will work within those parameters. We will do the most important things first and get your website up and running. Later we can add the less important things when the funds are available.

3. What is the $50 a month maintenance fee used for? This covers the cost of the domain name, the hosting fee, and one hour per month of updates to your website.

4. What if I do not need to use my one hour of monthly updates on my website? Do I loose that hour? No problem. You do not loose your hour, it simply accumulates and is added on to the next month.

5. Does it cost extra if I decide to use Flash animation and/or sound on my website? No, this is included in the $35 an hour cost.

6. Do I need to provide my own photos for my website, or do you take care of that? You will need to provide your own photos of anything specific to your website. (Or I can set you up with some photographers for hire that I know and have worked with in the past.) If you do not need specific photos, I can get generic stock photos for you that are of no extra charge.

7. How do I go about securing a domain name for my website? I can help you with finding a domain name that is especially geared to your particular website. This is at no extra cost to you.

8. Is there any way that I can daily monitor the progress on my website as it is being created? Yes. I have a test site that you can go to anytime that you want and view the progress on your website. If there is something that you decide that you want changed, just give me a call or send me an e-mail and I will take care of it for you.

9. How do I get my website to appear in the search engines and directories (Google, Yahoo, etc.)? I can take care of that for you. By using certain specific keywords and site submission, I will see that your website is listed in the major search engines, directories, and indexes.

10. Can you help me to know how to successfully promote my website so that I get traffic to it? Yes, I will give you a list of guidelines that will help you to promote your website so that people will know it is out there and stop by on the internet to visit it.

11. Can you set up e-commerce (an on-line store) for me to be able to sell items on the internet? Yes, I can help you set up a merchant account with a shopping cart, etc. for your virtual store on your website. People will be able to use a credit/debit card or paypal to make on-line purchases.

12. I really don't have time to write up the articles and content needed for my website. Can you help me with that? Yes, if you give me some basic information I can take care of putting together the needed articles and write-ups on your website. (Also included in the price.)
