Connect with RB Design Studio - Web, Print and SEO - Lexington, Kentucky

One of our most frequently asked questions is “What does a website cost?”. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. That’s like asking a mechanic, “What’s it going to cost to fix my car?” before he ever looks under the hood!

We are custom website developers and each client’s needs are considered on a “per case” basis. Graphic-intensive pages, sites involving e-commerce, shopping carts, slideshows, animations, special scripting, databases, or other special features may take several hours of work. Pages that are primarily text may only take a few minutes to develop.

The cost of building and maintaining a website can also be effected by how you provide the content. Digital text (email or Word documents) and JPGs, TIFs, or EPS files for graphics can save time and reduce your development costs. Handwritten notes, faxes, no idea of content, and images that must be scanned will drive costs up.

However, we have decided to post sample pricing guidelines and sample packages (to give a guideline to our pricing structure)

RB Design Studio, LLC charges $95.00/hour to design custom websites, including all graphics, changes, search engine optimization, photo resizing and editing, etc. This is inclusive of any changes made to new or existing websites. The same rate of $95.00/hour applies to website maintenance and/or changes after the site is launched bill in 1/4 hour incrfements.

Our policy is to invoice on a minimum of 1/4 hour. Invoices are mailed or emailed the first of the month for work done in the preceding month. Our policy is to make all desired changes such as adding photos, slideshows, adding pages, graphics, text changes, or anything else requested in a timely manner.

RB Design Studio will listen to what you want and has the capability to provide as little or as much as desired. We can provide a shopping cart, advise you on a credit card account that is affordable, use PayPal’s shopping cart or Buy Now buttons, or provide answers in a number of ways. RB Design Studio will maximize your potential to market and sell merchandise on the internet! Search engine optimization and submissions are included in this price.

If, after your site has been online a few months, you find it desirable to make changes to graphics, text, metadata or any other phase of your site, please feel free to let us know. We will not leave you once the site is up and running. Site maintenance is one of our specialties. We are here to help you and hope to establish long term relationships with our clients. We can even convert your existing static website to a content management system where you are able to make some changes yourself!
