First off, I apologize for the duplicate post. In trying to conform to good forum etiquette, I posted this in the web design forum, but in six and a half hours I have exactly 11 views including my own and zero responses. I think this is where everyone hangs out...?
Hoping someone can help....? Here we go:
I have a client for whom I'm going to do a complete website development, and while I can do everything I've listed below, I have no idea what to charge, since this is my first real 'client'.
The job not only will include setting up a wordpress-based website, plugins, etc. but adding all content, photos, adding events, adding monthly newsletter (online), a download directory, incorporating a membership plugin and implementing it (adding members, setting up the limited access areas, etc) - and a full year of maintenance (which includes not only software updates but all content updates).
I will also be including domain registration, web hosting costs, the cost for the premium theme, the cost for the membership plugin, dlguard, etc. It's a complete turnkey solution. The only thing NOT included would be the monthly cost for an autoresponder service if they want that.
Here's the list I've provided to the client, but don't know how to price it. Can anyone guide me on this?
1.Registration of your domain name
2.Contracting of web hosting services
3.Creating domain-specific email addresses
4.Installation of the latest version of the WordPress content management system
5.Installation and activation of a series of plugins (add-in modules to enhance the functionality of your website). Some samples include plugins designed for anti-spam, forms creation, search engine optimization, database backup, site map, ‘sticky’ posts, and more.
6.Adding your header or logo
7.Creating 5 - 6 pages, often including the following: About Us, Contact Us, Resources, Services, and others that are relevant to your site.
8.Uploading and positioning of photos that you provide to us. These photos may need cropping, resizing, or other editing.
9.Uploading and positioning of informational content that you provide to us.
10.Adding links to external resources that you identify.
11.Creating a navigational linking structure so that your visitors can easily move around your website
1.Developing a contact or feedback form for your visitors
2.Creating and populating a directory structure for documents and/or newsletters that you want your visitors to be able to view or download
3.Incorporating the ability to protect your download area
4.Tracking site statistics
5.Integrating membership functionality, so as to allow approved ‘members’ a greater degree of access (to sensitive or private information)
6.Installing, configuring, and populating a photo gallery
7.Setting up, populating, and managing an autoresponder account for sending out periodic newsletters to subscribers
8.Creating an opt-in form for subscribers and linking it to your autoresponder
PLUS one year complete maintenance and content management.
Thanks for your help,
