FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions. Here are some common questions about Elegant Studio.
Getting Started
Do you only make websites with weird colors?
Haha! No, definitely not.
Boundaries on you. Yes, you.

I require a LOT of faith. 

There may be times when I try to talk my customers out of using something they want. Should this occur, I promise you I will give precise reasons why, and while you might not agree I honestly hope you will trust my expert opinion. I always aim to make every client happy, but sometimes you, the client, can be your own worst nemesis when it comes to design decisions.

If any of the following describes you I might not be the right designer for you:

You’ve dabbled in some form of design in the past, so you know a bit about “how it works.” There’s room for only one chef in this kitchen

You’re not sure if you see the advantage in having a web presence for your company.

I’d be too concerned that you wouldn’t respect my time and effort, so let’s just not go down that road together.

You saw various sites you love so you have a long list of things your site must have, but all within your tight budget.

I understand having a fixed budget, but the more you want, the more I have to charge, as it’s not fair to me to give you x amount of features for a disproportionately low price.

You’d like a lower price on the first design because you promise you’ll be giving me more work.

Ummm nope, not falling for that one (again). I tell you what; I will give you the discount on your second project.

You want a cheap custom site.

I charge what I think is fair for my skills, talent, and my experience. If you’re looking for a fully customized, multi-paged, e-commerce site in $500. I’m not your man.

You want a developer who has a “the customer is always right” motto.

Sorry, also not me. If I’m hired for my expertise, I’ll expect to be allowed to do my job, even if it means saying no to bad/ugly suggestions you may have.

None of the above is intended to be rude or offensive in any way, but after doing this a while, I know what clients I work best with and who would dig working with me. I would NOT be offended if you would like a referral for another designer if I don’t seem like the right fit for your project. What’s most important is that you find the right designer for you, and I have lots of web designer buddies whose work I trust, just contact me and let me know

 

How much?

Kindly refer to the Pricing Page for full details.

Are hosting and maintenance offered?

Yes and Yes. Hosting for one year is free with all but Basic Package. From second year onwards you would have to pay for it. For maintenance kindly ask for a price. The fee for maintenance depends on the kind of work you need from time to time.

Is SEO offered?
All custom sites come with on-page Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) on all “main” pages. Individual blog posts, real estate listings, or similar are not included (but you will be able to do simple SEO tasks on your individual posts yourself). Good SEO greatly depends on your content, so it has to be pretty purposeful and useful to your audience if the ranking is very important to you. But you may want to consider hiring a professional copywriter if you think writing engaging content is not your strong suit. And this is where I come in. I do offer monthly SEO maintenance, writing blogs, making infographics and use proven methods to help SEO grow organically. SEO gets better when content is regularly updated. This is why frequent blogging is so great for SEO. I should mention that having a website does not magically bring in clients or customers. Marketing is needed, getting yourself out there on social media, spending money on online ads, etc. You as the business owner will need to put in some footwork. A website is not a set-it-and-forget-it magic tool, and it may not be an immediate return on your investment, patience is a big part of the formula. Usually, you see ranking change with every quarter. But it might be six, nine or sometimes twelve month when the organic content traffic would start generating business for you. I provide detailed reports on what the dollar value of organic traffic that I’m bringing in for your business.
Do you do white label work?
Yes, and I love it! Please get in touch if interested.
Are payment plans available?

Absolutely.

The payments are broken up into stages according to how I break the site work up so don’t think you’ll have to pay the cost all at once. I do, however, require a full payment in advance if you opt for Basic Package or 50% in advance if you select any other package. Please note that these packages include basic options of a Basic, Corporate or E-commerce site. Kindly discuss once before buying a package.
