Do You Need a Website or an Update?
My name is Jason Savage, owner of Tigers Eye Web Design. I’m a freelance designer residing in Raleigh, NC. Please read my resume for more information.
Do you need a personal or small business website? Do you have a website that is not mobile friendly? In 2018, 52.2% of the people worldwide used their mobile devices to access the Internet. You may need to migrate your existing website to a CMS (Content Management System) that is mobile friendly.
If you own a small business and do not currently have a website – you need one! If you want to share your thoughts with your own blog or feature your accomplishments – you need a website. I’m sure you’ve given it much thought. If you would like my recommendations on selecting a design firm or a freelancer, please read my blog post – Searching For a Website Designer. You may also want to read my post on WordPress Themes. If you don’t read any other post, please read my take on using proprietary page builders.
My concentration is on start ups, small business, events and personal websites. If you are considering selling products on your site, we can discuss your requirements. I will help you set up a hosting service if you do not have one.
Websites for Your Review
This page was size tested using SmallSEOTools. The page you are viewing is 100 KB. I consider this page size, give or take a few KB, as the average page size for the pricing estimate above. If individual pages exceed 100 KB, I charge $35 per hour to continue adding design elements provided by the client. The pricing above includes three hours of consultation plus two hours of WordPress training. Anything beyond five hours (consultation & training) will be billed at $35 per hour in quarter hour increments. If you do not want WordPress training, you can include the two training hours as general consultation for a total of five hours of consultation before billing occurs. All page text and images must be supplied in electronic format. Resizing of images is included, but any retouch or other image manipulation will be billed at $35 per hour at quarter hour increments.
I will install the Yoast SEO plugin, but site SEO can be very time consuming. I can show you how to use the plugin. Depending on how you plan to promote your site, we can discuss your optimization options.
The basic website pricing does not include any eCommerce. I use Woo-commerce in conjunction with WordPress. Read my blog post to get some idea of additional costs to add eCommerce. If you want to sell your products online, let’s talk.
If you currently do not have a website, and you have not experimented with WordPress, this may be a bit overwhelming. Have no worries! Contact me, and we can talk all about it.
On the other hand, if you are fairly comfortable with WordPress and have no problem maintaining a site, then you can save money on maintenance. I can show you what you need to do.
On a final note, you might be wondering about the name – Tigers Eye Web Design. I have a affinity for tigers. I worked with them for many years. I designed and built habitats, drop doors, slide doors, water stations and feeding stations. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Zoologist and world renowned tiger expert Dr. Michael Bleyman. The photo at left shows me (right), Anthony Marr (works mainly in India helping to save their tigers), and Willie tiger.
