This is for a simple hosted site such as Squarespace, WIX, Weebly, WordPress, etc.,  where you are picking out an existing template and largely living with it.  Some slight changes are OK.  If you have existing logo material, we can use that to to integrate your color profile and identity package.

If you need more intense customization, you want to utilize a shopping cart or you need a large number of photo galleries, etc., then the price is going to go up a bit.

For most of these types of sites, I will try to keep it to around $100 per page.  If you have a large number of pages that are set up the same and are very repetitive, we can come up with a more equitably priced solution.

This is for a  self hosted WordPress site where you install the WordPress engine yourself and have complete control of everything that you want on the site.  You can download the WordPress application at

Typically, when you use a hosted site that has some type of content management system, CMS, there are limitations placed on the end user.  You can’t always do exactly what you want and have to live with the limitations of their installation.  When you host your own website, on a paid server that allows you to load whatever you want, you will have much more complete control over your site.

If you find that the hosted sites, are too limited for your tastes, setting up your own CMS is the way to go.  While I think WordPress is one of the best options for you to choose to work with, there are others.  Joomla, Drupal

If you have an industry specific content management system, CMS, with an integrated shopping cart.  For example, there are a number of different shopping carts for the wine industry that come with their own proprietary CMS.  Other industries often have similar types of proprietary needs that lead to industry specified content management systems.

Why Hire Me?

If you are a small business, or just need a personal website, you probably know how daunting it can be to hire some of the companies who you can find on the web.  Just do a search on web developers in San Diego, what you get are some very highly experienced companies who can do a lot of things for your web site.  That’s all good until you look at the total costs and the hourly prices they will hit you with during any customization.  Most of these companies are more appropriate for enterprise level solutions.  With me you get a single person who is not going to hit you for the extremely high hourly rates that a large web development firm will need to charge you.  I work out of my home so I don’t have high costs to keep working.  On top of that, I have been a small business owner in another industry myself and understand the costs of hiring a company to build your website where it just seemed like a bottomless pit.  What you get from me is someone who will treat you fair and will care about your business needs.  I will be there, with you, until the job is complete.  I am very approachable and will help you work through whatever you need.
