Website Design and Programming
The building of websites for clients normally takes several weeks, at a minimum. Our general procedure for all of our web design-related services is:
Time Frame: as agreed with a client
Normal Fee Payment Schedule:
• 50% to start/downpayment
• 50% upon client final approval of the completed website, prior to the website launch
For smaller projects, we may require 100% upfront or 100% after the project is completed, dependent upon agreement with the client.
Because we are in constant communication with our clients throughout the process of performing our web design services (which generally include usability, search engine optimization, programming, and marketing consultation), seek their input and approval at every step, and the entire procedure takes several weeks at a minimum, we do not offer refunds on websites.
