Website Packages

We offer 3 website packages to meet your needs – 1) The Best Package -  $995, 2) The Professional Basic Package – $500 and 3) a Custom Package. They are search engine friendly, uniquely designed, functional, responsive, flexible, easy-to-edit and affordable. Our customers include artists and small business owners.

Websites can be very affordable, and like many things today, the marketing hype causes confusion.  My advice for artists and small business owners is to “Start Small, Think BIG”.

When SNIC is finished with the design template for your site, you own it. This means if ever you want to re-design your website you can on your own terms. If you want to change hosting providers (perhaps due to unsatisfactory customer service) you can do that too. It’s not to your advantage to have your design and hosting provider locked together in a monthly recurring contract.

If you are serious about getting your website up, and building it yourself, secure your own domain name and purchase web hosting from a reliable and customer service friendly provider. Many web hosting providers will host your site for $10 or less per month.  Including your private domain name,  it might cost $100-120 year to own a custom website with much room for growth! That’s a far cry from $40-75 per month for some bundled template hosting providers. And what’s more,  you still need to figure out how to set it up yourself. They will help you customize it – for a fee. You won’t own the design, and chances are, it’s being used by hundreds of others too.

At this point, you can either hire me to design and implement your site from beginning to end or you can do it yourself.  Finding a theme that is responsive, secure, flexible and well supported can be a bit of a challenge. Make sure you understand all of your requirements and cross-check your list against the theme’s capabilities before diving in. So whether you go with SNIC or the DIY route, with WordPress running on your own hosted web server you will have the ability to change your site, expand upon it, and re-design it at any time, on your own terms, on your own schedule, because the design template and the hosting provider will not be interdependent.
