Website Design and Development
“I’m part of your profit… not part of your cost.”
I understand that everyone will need something different, so prices will vary. I’m not the cheapest designer out there, but my prices are competitive and fair. I provide a detailed quote on request and you’ll not get stung with hidden extras. When pricing a project I take into account not just the technical elements of the build, but how much of my expertise, time, dedication, and creativity you need me to bring to the table.
A really good website is one that will work for you. The investment required? Generally between $2000 – $5000.Click here to open the Project Application / Website Worksheet Form
After you complete the website worksheet I will provide you a firm price quote. This is a fixed price, not an hourly rate. You never pay more than the project price quote, unless you decide to expand the website beyond the scope of the original proposal, or use additional services that were not originally contracted. Whatever the reason might be, rest assured that the price never changes without your express permission to proceed.
Website in a Week
Not in need of a custom website with all the bells and whistles? Would you rather bypass the formal consultation process? If so, you can get online fast with a pre-built website that includes all essential pages and features for only $120 per month. I’ve created ‘Website in a Week’ as an option for people who don’t have the budget to pay for a complete web design service in one go. If your ideas aren’t too rigid then this is a great deal!Click here for more information about 'Website in a Week'

Website Care Plans
Being on a care plan means that you don’t have to worry about anything to do with looking after your site. It’s all taken care of for you. No matter which plan you subscribe to, I’ll deal with all your website maintenance and administration – including regular software updates, backups, security and settings. I will ensure your website runs as well as possible, is as safe as it can be from hackers and spammers, and if your site does get hacked, can be restored immediately. This is done with a combination of security, maintenance, analytics, backup, and monitoring systems.

All prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD).
Plans are offered on a subscription basis – paid in advance. You can upgrade or downgrade any time.
Care plans can be paid on a six-monthly, quarterly or monthly basis if you’d prefer to spread the cost out over the year.
Although these plans are for sites I build or re-design, I welcome clients who are looking for a long term relationship with a dedicated webmaster. I first like to do a Website Evaluation in order to become familiar with your website, how it was built, and any potential issues that may arise. I’ll make a list of issues to fix and suggestions for improvement needed in order to proceed with the website on a care plan. The Website Evaluation is a fixed $280 fee.Click here for more information, and to proceed with a 'Website Evaluation'
