Our diligent work will certainly result in improvements but we don’t guarantee that your website will reach a particular position on any search engine. We do guarantee to work closely with you to develop a successful search engine optimization strategy for your business. Although we employ a proven method of website optimization, each site presents its own unique set of challenges and opportunities for long-term success. We do promise that we will not engage in SEO practices that violate search engine webmaster guidelines for honest and ethical standards. We do promise that you will receive the very best in customer service. A real person is available for you to talk to, and your phone calls and emails will be promptly returned.

Many of our clients are small companies, non-profit organizations and individuals. By “farming out” their design projects, they save themselves time and frustration and save the expense of keeping someone on staff to do design tasks. We are flexible and can work within any budget constraints you may be facing. Put us to the test and you’ll be surprised how far your design budget can stretch at Joe Donnelly Design.
It is difficult to quote an average price, due to the enormous range in requirements for a site. According to BusinessWeek Online, a designer might charge $2,000 or more for a basic Web site, not including Web hosting fees. If you check out BuyerZone.com, you’ll see that a 4 – 6-page template-based site will cost around $400, while a full custom design will come in closer to $800 – $1500. Other authoritative sources generally quote in the $1,000 – $2,000 range.
There are many, many factors that influence the ultimate cost of any given website, and we encourage you to read our article regarding Website pricing for more information and guidance in searching for your Website provider.
Comprehensive search engine optimization (SEO) work is a process that typically takes several months. The factors that influence the speed that your site advances in the rankings include the age of your site, the existing quality of the website and how it is optimized, your competition, and the skill of the firm who is optimizing your site. That said, you should see positive change in your rankings within the first month. We have helped clients with brand new websites rank on the first page of Google for competitive keywords within one to two months.
We do not believe in disappointing anybody with any form of hidden cost. It is our policy to be transparent with our clients with all costs itemised prior to the start of any project. You are notified of any changes and adjustments. Work only progresses once you have agreed to any changes.
Depending on the project type, some items that are typically quoted separately include:
– purchase of stock photography or illustration
– printing services
– Web domain registration
– Web hosting fees
The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website is based on several factors. Custom design work can take anywhere from 1 – 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you require. The development phase requires an additional 1 – 6 weeks, depending on the number of pages, and the functionality required. Of course, these are general guidelines, and we will make every effort to meet the timeframe you have in mind.
If your goal is to simply create and print your own material from your desktop printer for personal use such as greeting cards, flyers, or craft projects using desktop publishing software then chances are you will not need a graphic designer.
What a graphic designer will bring to your process is an in-depth knowledge of graphic design and the elements and principles of graphic design, as well as the software skills required to use desktop publishing and image programs. A graphic designer will also be conversant in the process of preparing files for use by others – be they printers or online Web hosting providers, ensuring the trouble-free output of your finished communication piece.
To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure. If you’re still interested, we’ll come to your place of business and come up with a firm quote.
We have three major marketing packages: the Site Intensive, the Hero Plus, and Hero Paid Search Management. Rates for other work, such as press releases or copywriting, are determined on an individual basis. Please contact us for more specific information about our prices. While most of our clients receive the services they need from one of our packages, our marketing packages and services are fully customizable.
Prices depend on many variants, but you can be sure you are getting a great value for your design project. Design jobs are charged by the hour. Typical graphic design projects are $85/hr. or a flat $150 for a small to med setup job. We also bill in 15min increments for web work. If you have small changes to a pre-existing file that takes 5 min for a quick update, we will charge the min amount of $45. Website work starts at $85 per hour. You won’t find that with some of our competitors. We encourage prospective clients to compare The Brand Effect with agencies producing the same level of work.
Yes. Our web design and development service include configuration of your email accounts, detailed monthly traffic reports and basic search engine optimization services. Basic SEO includes submission of your site to the major search engines, and the setup of your primary meta tag information (Page Title, Description and Keywords). Additionally, your site is built from the ground up with search engine friendly technologies and methods.
For small projects, 50% of the estimated fee must be provided prior to beginning work, with the remaining payment due upon completion of the project. For larger projects, an initial payment representing one-third of the estimated total fee is required. The second payment is required at the halfway point, with the final third due upon completion of the project.
Search engine optimization is a tricky business. SandiWeb has had years of documented success with creating sites that gain top search engine listings. Don’t take our word for it! Visit our portfolio and do your own searches for the sites you see listed. As the search engine industry has consolidated and evolved over the past several years, SandiWeb has continually refined our system to give site owners and SEO experts the tools they need to author pages that work well for shoppers as well as search engines.
You may choose to use our shared security certificate, or we can install one specifically for your website (for an additional monthly fee). Our security certificate is an SSLv3 certificate issued by GeoTrust. Your customers are equally protected with our shared certificate versus installing your own; the only benefit to installing your own is that the URL in their browser will always show your domain name, rather than ours.
Yes, we’d be happy to work with your existing design. We may need to make some modifications to accommodate MightyMerchant features. We can go over any changes that may need to be made after we see the design you have. Here are a few sites we’ve put together where our customer had someone else designs the site: www.regalgroupcpa.com / www.graphiciran.directory
During our initial logo meeting, we first begin by discussing the client’s ideas, target market, and uses for this logo. We then ask for samples of existing logos that the client likes or dislikes to get an idea of their taste. Sometimes the client already has a design concept in mind. Other times, they have no idea what they want. Either way, we make sure we have collected enough information before we begin work. Our logo design service is very straight forward. If you’d like to see extra concepts after our initial three ideas or if you need a couple logo designs for multiple companies our service can be priced according to your needs
A finished project is yours upon receipt of final payment. At your request, we will supply the electronic files to you on CD, dropbox, or through e-mail. We also keep a copy of your project on file for later updates or should you lose your copy.
As an agency, we listen to our clients from the start. We encourage the client to bring in any samples, color combinations/swatches, and ideas they may have to help us get an idea of style before starting to work with new clients. During the design process, the client is asked to approve certain colors and fonts before work continues. Once the design project is ready for print we will submit a final proof for the customer’s approval before submitting to production. Once a job is in production, the job cannot be cancelled. At the conclusion of a project, the client may request the artwork in various formats if payment was made for design services.

We cannot rank you for phrases already taken by another client. It would be unfair to rank 2 clients for the same phrase since only 1 can be the winner. Also, there will be some phrases so competitive we just cannot guarantee increased rankings. If that is the case we will advise you. Lastly, we do not accept phrases including the word “SEO”
