Yes! We won't talk to you using technical jargon. We won't give you a website with fancy gizmos that are not useful. We will work within your budget. In fact, the best websites are made when non-technical people express what they want in non-technical language. We are experts in gathering requirements from people just like you, and producing attractive, functional websites.
If you are planning to improve your current website, or build a new website from scratch, the following costs should be budgeted: planning and requirements setting, graphic design, content management system set-up, programming, and configuration, as well as monthly hosting fees. Many of our clients are continually adding new features and sections to their website in support of new campaigns, courses, or events, and thus Web Networks also offers a monthly maintenance package for groups that for example wish to engage our team for 2-4 hours a month.
Many of our clients come from non-profit, charitable, union, and government sectors, and they appreciate Web Networks' own non-profit status and understanding of the unique requirements of groups operating from a mission-driven, ethical base.
However we also work with individuals and private enterprises who share our values, and want to support and benefit from our work--see for example our recent site for a unique artisan organization, Shepherd's Watch.
Yes, we do. If you need assistance setting up a simple, single donation page, course or event registration, or a full online store, we can quickly and affordably have you accepting credit card payments, capturing all data while maintaining complete industry-standard privacy and security. Examples of Web Networks commerce projects include the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO), The Association for Canadian Studies in the United States (ACSUS), and The Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC).
Web Networks offers a range of websites for organizations: affordable hosting packages if you are building your own website, and custom web development services. If you are building a new site or upgrading your current site, costs tend to fall into these rough categories:
- $5,000 - $7,500 for a website with your own customized, clean and simple design, and a content management system allowing you to easily add and manage text, graphics and files.
- $15,000 - $25,000 for a more extensive graphic design process, private areas for staff committees, and multiple languages.
- $50,000+ for a serious graphic design process, public and private areas, and more complex workflow, such as online registrations and data transfer.
