Website Survey and
The crux of our website consulting services is based around doing
a website survey and evaluation. This is the essential part of determining
if your website is W3C compliant, Search Engine Optimized, or ready
for pay-per-click advertising. Without doing a survey and evaluation
we really don't know what your needs are or how much it may cost to
provide any of our other website services. Of course, you can always
hire us just on a per-hour basis, too.
Not many companies want to open up their costs of services to a carte
blanche scenario of paying by the hour. We understand this, and that
is why we recommend our website survey and evaluation service. If the
job requirements are well defined in the beginning, no one will be surprised
when the bill arrives. The problem with the working by-the-hour situation
is that usually the person that make a request for additional work frequently
has a different amount of time in their head that the job will take
compared to what it actually takes. We often hear: "Oh, that won't take
long at all... just to do this one little thing." Sometimes it really
doesn't take a lot of time. And then again, sometimes it does.
Work can also be preformed on a fix budget basis too. Where the work
stops at a predefined budgeted amount. Again, there is a problem with
this methodology. It maybe a great way to keep within the budget, but
not always a great way to get the project completed. If you want us
to work to a fixed budget don't be surprised that when we stop, a portion
of the website may not work.
We have been doing this kind of consulting work now for a very long
time. We strive to be fair with our clients when it comes to our fees
but we need to remain true to ourselves and get paid for the work that
we do. With that said, we always recommend that you first get a website
survey and evaluation. The cost estimate for the website survey and
evaluation is of course free. The amount we charge for the website survey
and evaluation is usually far less than most people would guess. It
remains inexpensive because we aren't doing any changes in the programming
or modifications to the website; we are just looking at what is there.
We report back with an estimation of what it will costs to do the work,
but not a report or list of what needs to be specifically done. Because
we don't write a report is the reason that we can keep the costs of
our website survey and evaluation at a reasonable rate for our clients.
The first thing you
will need to do is to get a free estimate for your website survey

a website survey and evaluation.
