I don't want to know what your budget is at the outset. That's probably the first question you get asked when you request a quote for web development, and you're right to be suspicious. Because web development is a highly technical process, it's easy to get lost in tech jargon and accept developers' pronouncements on faith.
After all, how would you feel if you walked into an auto mechanic's shop with a messed up ride and after asking the mechanic how much it'll cost to fix your wheels, the mechanic replied, "Well, what's your budget?" I don't believe in that kind of approach.
Because I have the development process down to a science, we don't have to resort to black magic when it comes to pricing. I believe in transparent pricing, allowing you to buy features and functionality a la carte.
WordPress powers the websites of over 25 million bloggers, entrepreneurs, and business owners worldwide. It was built by the tireless contributions of hundreds of developers and continues to improve every day thanks to the genius of the open source community.
Since the release of WordPress 3.0, the platform has graduated from being the #1 tool for publishing blogs to a powerful content-management system for websites of all flavors due to its incredible flexibility and incredibly easy-to-use Dashboard, which allows non-technical users to control the content in their site like no other platform available today.
I'm not interested in building websites for one-time, flash-in-the-pan marketing. I'm interested in building practical, usable websites for both you as the content contributor and your users as visitors. The goal is to create a web property that lets you get your message out there without having to think about the technical hurdles involved in managing a website.
A website that performs is built according to the latest web standards, degrades gracefully, and plays nice with search engines. It's built to serve and extend the impact of your content, not dress it up like a window display. And most importantly, it's a tool you can use to extend your offline reach in ways you might not have considered before.
