What this service does not include:
- We will not produce your content. You are responsible for the creation of all of your content.
- We will not backup or restore your system. This is up to you and your host which is one reason it’s very important to select a host that can provide that service to you should you need it. We will provide and configure a backup plugin for you and give you some ideas about backing up your system but we do not guarantee your sites up-time.
- We will not provide you with 24/7 service. Our service will be provided in a timely manner between the hours of 8:00AM and 5:00PM PST Monday – Friday.
- We will not develop your business plan for you. If you need help in this area, we can certainly help.
- We will not monetize your site. A monetization strategy is not within the scope of this service. We can suggest some popular monetization mechanisms to you but their deployment is totally up to you.
- Ongoing customization and support are not included in this offering. If you require ongoing customization and support, we can provide this service to you at a very competitive hourly rate. As well, you can really help yourself out in this regard by purchasing the StudioPress theme which will give you access to their support forums.
- We will not promise to make you successful! Our intention is to provide you with the tools you need to establish an online presence using a framework that allows for growth and change.
So what does this cost and how soon is ‘Online Soon’?
The final price for this service and how fast your site will be online will depend on several factors including (but not limited to):
- Your abilities to provide us with the details we will ask you for in order to get your site online and all of your plugins configured properly.
- Do you already have a domain name? This can take time.
- How fast your hosting company provides you with the required hosting package.
- Do you have your content ready? For example, depending on the nature of your site, you will need verbiage for your about page, contact page, subscribe page. If it’s a blog, you should have at least a few posts ready to go. Remember, all of this is up to you. Our goal is to provide you with the mechanism and framework to facilitate your ability to publish the information easily and effectively.
This service can be provided for as little as $795.00 – $1,200.00. Of course, this depends on the scope of the job. It’s best to contact us for a quote. All things being equal, your site can be online within a week or two.
