General Information

Having a website created for your business is a pretty scary thing. Understandable.

First, you want to see some of the work the designer has online, and then you'll want to see some examples of website structures. I've provided examples of both in the drop down menu under Web Designing Info. You'll see examples of different layouts that are acceptable according to the folks that run the Internet. In the examples of page layouts notice that you can navigate from example to another example using the navigation menu on the the current page you're viewing. This will keep you from having to use the back button.

Second, you'll be petrified wondering about the cost of having someone create a site for you. There are places online where you can create your own website for free. You have to have basically the same skills as you have to create a Microsoft Word Document and maybe a few more. But that option is there for you to explore. Now, as far as what I charge; it isn't that horrible. If you look at the link in the drop down menu that says " Websites Created by Classic MO Designs" and click on it, you'll go to a page with four sites I've designed. Take a look at Life and Performance Nutrition. A site like that would cost around $350-$400 providing there aren't a lot more pictures. By contrast, take a look at Lundin Antique. Lundin Antique has hundreds of pictures and the photo editing raises the cost of the website substantially. To create a site with that many images which have to be edited would be at least $1500. A single column website with a logo and not more than five pictures will only be around $150 depending if I have to create your logo.

Third, you'll need to find a web host. I use Netfirms. Netfirms is always having a sale on domain names. You will have to pay for your domain name. And you'll have to pay around $13 a year (at least at Netfirms) to keep your site online. There are many other hosting sites you can find online. I wouldn't get a free domain. Those web hosts often put tons of ads on your webpage.

After you find a hosting site, then you have to check to see if your website name is available. Often times you'll need to have an alternate name in mind. Once you have your website domain purchased, then you give me your log-in information and I take it from there.

There will probably be many emails between the you and me in order to make certain I have things exactly the way you intend. If you live in the Joplin, Missouri area, meetings can be scheduled. All ideas for websites are unique and different, so the best thing for you to do is to send me a note from the Contact page and we can go from there.
