The big question: how much?
We charge a flat fee (to be negotiated during our consult), in addition to the initial Wix hosting fees. The cost for your website will be determined by several factors - including number of pages desired, number of topics/items/breeds, and amount of content to be included. We strongly suggest one website per animal/breed, to ensure optimal connections with search engines. Depending on their current promotions, starting off can run between $100 and $200 for initial domain purchase with a subscription to Wix premium (typically around $170). To start, we request 50% down, plus the Wix costs.
We cannot create content; you are the expert of your animal/breed/product. We need you to do your part in supplying us with quality photos (not screenshots of photos), as well as details regarding each animal. Once we agree the website is finished (we will discuss what finished looks like during a consultation), the remaining 50% of our fee is due. At that time, we will transfer ownership of the website to you and it will be your responsibility to set up auto-billing with your credit card information with Wix. If you don't do this, you run the risk of losing your domain and/or website.
If managing your own site is not something you would like or are able to do, we can discuss an updating fee for going forward. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to send us an email inquiry.
Thanks for looking!
