subscription

website design

Get a fully managed, custom website without the down payments, hosting, and maintenance fees on separate invoices.

All included and more in one affordable monthly payment.

why choose a subscription

based web design?

A subscription-based website might be just right for you for a few reasons. My monthly website packages are designed to make it easy for any business owner to build a strong online presence without feeling the burden of making a huge one-time payment for the website.

Perhaps you’ve experienced the frustration of a designer disappearing on you, and you want a plan that guarantees ongoing support. Or maybe you like the ease of knowing your website is always up to date and maintained without you having to think about it.

Enroll in my subscription website service, and you’ll receive a tailored website with hosting, updates, SEO, and additional premium features all bundled into a single monthly fee.

what’s included with every
subscription based website?

Modern, Engaging Website Design

Custom design based on your preferences which are in line with the latest trends and best practices.

Responsive Design

It is imperative that your website looks as good on a tablet or cell phone as it does on a desktop screen. 70% of web traffic comes from mobile devices.

Website Hosting

I offer secure, fast and reliable client hosting through my preferred hosting provider, Siteground.

Note that email accounts are not provided. You will be responsible for hosting your emails with a third party like Gmail or Zoho.

Image Editing and Optimization

I resize every image on your website and compress it before uploading it to your site. This plays a huge role in site loading speed.

One Hour Per Month for Content Updates

One hour per month for requested changes and updates to your site. This does not roll over to the following month, and does not include redesign work.

Discounted Hourly Rate & Priority Support

Discounted hourly rate for work requiring more than one hour, and expedited service for any technical support issues or website change requests.

Premium Theme Builder

I will build your website in WordPress with the premium theme builder DIVI by Elegant Themes. This is included FREE and would incure a $89 USD annual fee at no extra cost to you.

Premium Plugins

I have a vast collection of premium plugins, many of which add cool functionality to your website.

If you require a unique feature that I cannot currently accommodate, I will source and quote you with a price before moving forward.

Google Search Console Indexing

We register every site I build with the Google Search Console to get it found online even quicker.

Organic SEO

I use the popular Search Engine Optimization tool – Rank Math to add and manage metadata before launch to help the site get indexed on Google.

Page Load Speed

I use several premium plugins to help make your site load as quickly as possible, coupled with secure and reliable hosting from Siteground.

Website Care

My Premium level Care plan automatically protects all of my Subscription websites. You can view all of the details on my Care page.

The cost of your domain is not included in your subscription. If you need my help purchasing a domain I can walk you through the process.
The setup fee is a pre-payment for the first three months. This will allow me time to work with you in collecting your content and moving forward on the design and the build of your new website. Monthly payments will commence on the 4th month.

Get your website redesigned every three years. WHAT?

why would I need my website redesigned every three years?

Websites become outdated

The online landscape evolves constantly, affecting what makes websites appealing, contemporary, and effective in driving conversions. Moreover, Google frequently alters its algorithms for ranking websites in search results.

Without periodic updates, your website’s appearance will quickly become outdated in the ever evolving internet landcape.

Your web designer gets better

I am continuously improving my design skills and staying up-to-date with new online trends and features.

Additionally, you have the benefit of working with a familiar and trusted designer who understands you and your business.

Improve what's working; fix what's not

After 3 years, we’ll have a pretty good idea of what’s working on your website and what isn’t.

A redesign is a great opportunity to build on and improve the parts that are working, and change or eliminate entire parts that are holding you back.

just the FAQ’s

Why is it a three year subscription term?

The three-year term is similar to the cost of purchasing website development services on a one-off basis.  The subscription term provides you with the opportunity to pay over time and not incur a large one-time cost.

Are there any additional costs?

All hosting, software and security plugin costs are included in this price.  If your needs require software unique to your website, I will work up a cost and present it to you for approval. 

When is the monthly fee due?

The monthly fee is payable on the first of each month. Upon signing up for the subscription you will be asked to provide a preferred Credit Card or alternate payment method with automatic withdrawals setup for every month.

Can I upgrade my subscription plan during its current three year term?

Yes, I will request an updated Statement of Work reflecting the new plan and restart a new three year term.

Can I cancel my subscription plan during the three year term?

I will request a thirty-day written notice if you want to cancel your subscription before it is finished.  You will be responsible for paying the remaining balance outlined in the contract before handing over your electronic assets. 

What happens when my subscription is completed?

When your subscription is completed you have several choices:

  • Renew or upgrade your three-year subscription and get a new website.
  • Renew or upgrade your three-year subscription and overhaul your current website.
  • Do nothing, don’t renew, and no updates will be made to your current website, I will recommend one of my Care Plans to stay current with software and security updates. But this is purely optional.
