If you would like a web site design that is simple, clean, yet elegant, and one easy to navigate without diversionary clutter, I can help. My coding technique (the detailed html language behind what you see) meets the latest World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) design specifications. The icons at the bottom of this web page indicate the coding used here was tested to meet those specs with zero errors. What this means to you is that you are getting a well-designed site, optimized for search engine compatibility (easier for people to find you), as well as coding that can be easily upgraded by other web designers, should you require one in the future.
Although the cost to develop a web site varies greatly depending on web site size, complexity, and optional features, the estimates below will give you an idea of the range of prices. All sites are custom designed considering the style and color preferences you would like, and with the copy (text) and images you provide.
$600 - $1000
Consisting of 1 to 5 pages in a simple format. This type of site may suffice if you require a simple web presence without a lot of information or interactivity, just basic advertising. These two "Web Site Design" pages are an example at the low end.
$1000 - $1600
Consisting of 5 to 10 web pages. This is a common sized web site for an individual or small business. This type of site generally has a main page with a menu of links to several other categorized pages.
Starting at $1600
Consisting of 10 or more pages.

The small business Web Site often requires prompt and reliable updates due to continually changing inventory, specials, current events, or new services. A site with new content regularly added is one of the key ways to keep your visitors returning to see what is new. It is also a significant factor to maintain good search engine placement. My services include web site maintenance either by an hourly rate or on a monthly retainer to ensure your site stays current with your evolving business needs.
Web Site design Includes domain name (URL) registration (if required), publishing the site with an appropriate Web Site Host, search engine optimization, and submission of your site to Google Search Engine, Yahoo Search, MSN, and The Open Directory Project.**
You should also consider the cost of web site hosting in addition to the web site design cost. Although minimal, this is about $7 / month with a 36-month hosting plan (about a $250 initial fee).
**The Open Directory Project is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. Due to the staggering growth-rate of the Internet, automated search engines are increasingly unable to turn up useful results to search queries. The Open Directory provides a solution to this problem. Open Directory is not a Search Engine, but a directory listing hand-selected Web Sites that other search engines use, including Netscape Search, AOL Search, Google, Yahoo Search, Lycos, HotBot, DirectHit, and hundreds of others.
About 78% of search queries are made through Google and Yahoo. Both are also "search providers" powering many other search engines.
