Products & Services icons-03Basic website design & setup

Regardless the design you choose to implement, all web-development services include:

  • Preliminary consultation to determine your needs
  • Mockup + 3 revisions before work on site commences
  • Ongoing consultation during design & development process
  • Unlimited upload & download capacity
  • Unlimited email addresses for your staff (many services charge an extra $100 per 10 email addresses)
  • User-friendly content management system so you are easily able to manage your site, adding and removing content yourself
  • A crash-course in how to use your site/section (it is your site, controlled by you, so you will need to know how to manage it!)
  • General technical support for IT issues for the first year at no extra cost

All websites are designed to include:

  • Custom site design with your choice of layout
  • Your choice of colours
  • Your choice of menus
  • Your choice of sidebar/s
  • Custom header & footer with your logo
  • Social media sharing buttons
  • Contact form (many providers charge extra to set this up)
  • Blog section (many providers charge extra to set this up)

There are no “hidden extras” in our fee scale. Many web developers charge what’s known as a “base rate” and then everything else is treated as an additional component for which you must pay extra. With us, what you see is what you get. Your quote will be as close as possible to the numbers stated here, unless you are asking for something that’s not on the list, in which case your quote will be tailored to your needs.

Please don’t fall for web developers who say they can “set up your site” for $250 or thereabouts! It’s true, they can do this – but this setup only covers their hosting fee. Everything else costs extra on top and your $250 site can easily end up costing you at least $750 before you’ve even added features as simple as a blog section. These developers play on the fact that most people know little to nothing about web development, and thus charge far more for services than is really necessary.

With us you can feel confident that all your questions will be answered in plainspeak, and that we will fully explain the financial implications of any work you would like done before we quote you.

Products & Services icons-041 year domain name registration

If you are setting up a new website you will need to register a domain name (basically a web address) for it. Domain names are typically available for between $10 and $60, although some go for much more. Catalyst for Transition will consult with you over which domain may be most suitable for you. We only charge you what it costs to book the domain, plus a small administration fee that covers our work in registering the domain.

Products & Services icons-051 year hosting

Hosting refers to the fee you must pay to the company that hosts your website on their server. The hosting fee is what it costs to run the server plus mark-up for the business that rents or owns the server. Catalyst for Transition charge lower fees than most other web design companies because hosting is not our primary business – we do not make any profit from it, charging only what it costs us to host.

Products & Services icons-06Custom mailing list & newsletter

Many organizations and businesses need a direct communication channel to their audience, so they opt for a subscription function that enables visitors to the website to receive regular email updates. The value of a custom mailing list is that you can divide subscribers into categories in order to target demographics with specific messages or campaigns.

Catalyst for Transition will design you a custom subscriber database for your mailing list, and a custom newsletter template that brands your communication. We charge only for the design service. The mailing service itself is free of charge for unlimited mails, whereas many other providers charge an additional fee per newsletter, and an additional bulk fee per 100 emails sent. With Catalyst for Transition you don’t need to think twice about your budget when you have something to say to your audience.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Once you have a website established it is important to optimize search engine compatibility in order to bring as many visitors to your site as possible, and for the right reasons. Catalyst for Transition offer the following services in our SEO package:

  • Preliminary consultation to determine your specific needs, vision, message, desired outcomes, audience, and targets
  • Coding to ensure your site is optimally readable by search-engines
  • Installation of SEO software to automate search optimization functionality
  • Keyword/phrase search optimization (involves alterations to site content and/or strategies for keyword usage)
  • Internal links and formatting to optimize searchability and click-rate (involves minor alterations to site content)
  • Basic coaching on how to use SEO to its full advantage

Note: there are a lot of SEO-only businesses out there claiming to be able to bring a great deal of viewer traffic to your website, but at a premium. Take note there is no way any service can guarantee that your site will feature in the top searches. What Catalyst for Transition offer is a combined package that delivers the technical work you are unlikely to be trained in yourself, as well as coaching on how to optimize your website for online searches with a few tips and tricks of the trade.
