Charging Methods:

Depending on the type of project that you are seeking to have completed, the method in which it will be charged may vary.  These methods may include one or more of the following:

Details:

An hourly fee is typically chosen to be the charging method in most cases that include Web Design (purely aesthetic) as opposed to Web Development which goes on to include additional and more complicated factors such as the development of custom coding (javascript, PHP, Ajax, etc).  So, if the project you are seeking to have completed simply includes the look and layout of a particular website template, CMS theme, or graphic design, then an hourly fee will most likely be the method in which your project's price will be based on.

The hourly rate of your project is based on the original completion time and does not include any reasonable amount or types of post-creation revisions that you may require.

Costs:
$45.00 per hour
* $60 for the first hour of each work day.
* Not to exceed 6 hours ($285) per day.

Average Time:
As this may vary from project to project, the average time of completion is typical 48 to 72 hours.

A 'per project' method of paying is popular for large projects where the full details of which are still in the research and development (R&D) stage. This is commonly due to a client having an incredible idea for a new web services but has still yet to work out the details. these projects will often onclude both "design" and "development" stages as well as other factors that will normally result in over-excessive fees if they were charged by the hour.

In many cases, a 'per project' charge is required not simply due to R&D or time consumption; But rather the ability for the developer to create innovative solutions in custom coding methods to facilitate the need for new concepts that most ready-made or forum-born scripts can not provide for.

'Per project' fees are often chosen when a project includes the development of a project that requires interactive content (eg. membership management) or an extensive database build.

Milestone payments are often the best solution for projects that require several related projects to be created where each project must be fully implemented onto your site before continuing with the next one.

For example: A client may want a custom forum created. Then they may also want a sidebar widget to display the recent forum posts. After that, they may want to include a chrome extension that will allow people to post items from around the web to the forum as a new topic. With all of this in mind, the forum would first need to be created and implemented onto the site before creating the widget. And the widget may need to be created and implemented before creating the chrome extension. So each of the three projects will be treated as separate projects to be paid upon completion although the three are related and estimated as a single project.

Note: Projects of this type can, in fact, be created in full prior to being implemented into a website with a single payment. However, by doing this, it involves more coding time and a separate database for testing which also results in a higher final cost. Therefore, milestone payments are often preferred by the client.

A 'per page' fee is often used when a client simply needs an update to specific pages on an existing site or the creation a small website where each page is consistent with one another (similar coding requirements). This would be common with landing pages or simple business card or AdSense informational websites.

The 'per page' fee is usually only implemented when the project consists of around 10 pages or less and does not require database queries.

Costs:
$45.00 for the first page
* $10 per additional page
* $5 additional fee per image if the images require modification in file type, size, dimensions, etc.

Average Time:
These projects generally take about one to two hours for the first page and then approximately one hour or less per additional page.

Details:

A 'percentage of sales' fee is very rare but can be considered in specific cases and under carefully constructed terms.

Some clients have a great product or service that they want to provide but have little to no finances to get the project off the ground. In most cases like these, they would also have very little money in the way of marketing their product or service as well. So this type of payment method would be very rare. The only exception to this would be if the client can display a very reasonable presentation as to how they will be able to overcome financial obstacles in order to get their product or service out to the public. They would also need to demonstrate their ability to do so with previous ventures as well or have a large visitor and user base on a website that they already own.

Costs:
Percentages are based on the product, prices, and estimated sales potential.

A monthly fee is more commonly referred to as "Ongoing Webmaster Services" and is a service that I provide for clients who have an existing website but require a webmaster to perform regular routines. These routines may involve theme and plugins updates, simple tasks from time to time, periodic backups of the site and database, content updates, link checking, etc.

The Ongoing Webmaster Service does not include large startup projects such as the completel development of a new website or virtual product. However, it does include small development projects such as widget, sidebar components,etc at reasonable intervals in realtion to the domain(s) that are included.

Part Time:

Full Time:
$1,599 per month
* not to exceed 5.5 accumulative hours per day (Weekdays)

As an alternative to paying money for Versitek services, bartering is accepted if the product or service that you have to offer is acceptable. This, of course, is based on approval but is not something we frown upon.

So if you think that you have a great product or service that you would like to exchange for our services, then feel free to simply ask.
