Kraml Design offers quality original Web sites at "cookie cutter" template prices!

One price doesn't fit all...

If you ask a car dealer to tell you how much a vehicle would cost, chances are they'll ask what make, what model and what options. The same goes for Web sites. Don't be fooled by "one price gets you a Web site" ads. If a car dealer gives you a price of $500 without asking for the make, model and options, rest assured you'll be driving home a rusty bucket of bolts with 300,000 miles on it. You get the picture.

As I was attempting to illustrate above, it is difficult to quote on "custom" creative work. From project to project the time involved can vary greatly due to the complexity of each assignment. Those companies offering flat rates for Web site design are most likely utilizing prefabricated design templates that will be used for other businesses, possibly by your competitors. Flat rates are often inflated. Some design elements may take hours while others may only take minutes. This is why I offer hourly rates with average times as a guide. This will help alleviate paying for time not really spent on your project. Go with true custom design and avoid the embarrassment of "wearing the same dress to the prom."
An average 8-10 page site may take approximately 15 to 40 hours to complete. This page is to provide you with an idea of what it might cost to design a CUSTOM Web site. A site could actually cost as little as $250 or less if it is extremely simple and only a page or two. On the average it's closer to $800 with planning, illustration, graphics, photos and building of pages. There are also plenty of cases where the cost could be in the thousands. You know your budget, I'll help you accomplish your goals while keeping budget in mind. Once an actual project has been outlined an accurate time/cost estimate can be agreed upon.

Hosting buyers beware! Remember to evaluate carefully those "great deals" out there offering "cheap this" and "free that." They're usually "to good to be true" rip-offs. Here's an exception to the rule. I refer my clients (big and small) to www.DotEasy.com They have the perfect BASIC plan for those getting their "Web" feet wet before investing large amounts of money into hosting fees and services they may never need. DotEasy does NOT put any advertising banners or messages on your site. You get a generous amount of space, 10 email accounts and Web mail. (I've seen $30+ per month hosting out there with only one email account). Also, If you're having a high traffic month you can upgrade for just one month and it's pro-rated.

If you outgrow their BASIC services and need to upgrade that's a good thing. That means you're generating traffic and traffic means business!

I do not profit from DotEasy. I own a number of sites and to prove my confidence in their reliable service they've been hosting KramlDesign.com (this site) since 2000. If you do outgrow their BASIC service you can upgrade (at VERY reasonable prices) to their robust fee based hosting or simply move on to another host of your choice. Kraml Design is here to design for you not to resell virtual hosting. If you desire I can also assist in researching and making recommendations regarding what hosting company to use.
