I encourage you to look at advertising and marketing expenditures as an investment in your business, rather than just another expense. Expenditures on my services are designed to repay your business over and over as the years go by in brand recognition and value, as well as revenue derived from your ads and programs.
Design and Marketing Rates
Design cost varies by the job. I base my design and advertising fees on an hourly rate between $90 and $150 per hour. (compare to ad agency fees of $175 – $400 per hour… they pass the cost of overhead and executive salaries on to you, the client)
Website Design Investment
I will need to discuss the needs and goals for your website before presenting pricing. In general, for a professional small business website, your starting cost, for an SEO website design, is $1,800. One way to ballpark an estimate for yourself is to calculate $2,000 plus an average of $125 per page. This is simply for you to get a rough idea, and will vary by your actual design and programatic needs.
Please note, my websites are tools, and are not the same as those $300 sites you may have seen advertised, or been quoted. I design sites for the professionals or corporations that can be found in searches on Google and provide advanced functionality, effective design and well written content that results in viewers taking action. see website template myth
That said, if you want a site with a pre-designed template and you want to do the work of populating the site, please contact me: I may be able to help you for less than $1,800, depending on your needs and skill level.
In general, I do not manage email marketing campaigns. However, I recommend that you use MailChimp.com to manage your email. The cost to have Camrud Advertising set up a Mail Chimp account for you, customize an email template, set up your list, and make your email sign up form for your website start at $500.
