Website for The Motor City Medium
Thank you for considering Hager Solutions! I am excited to partner with you and help your new business establish an online presence and to provide you continuing support. Please email me with any questions you may have.
I’ll meet with you (virtually or in person) to understand what you are looking for. I will then create a website with the latest technologies to meet your needs. The goal of this website would be to make information about your company and testimonials accessible and marketable online. We will also setup a scheduling system for your clients to book reservations for services directly on the website. For your website I think Squarespace will offer the best platform and give you all the functionality that you need. They offer a flexible platform and can support adding other features down the road. You can read more about their scheduling platform here: Online Appointment Scheduling.
I will do the initial design and construction of the site and then review the work to ensure it meets your expectations. We can start with a blank canvas, and customize it for your business based on some of the examples that you’ve shared. Of course, I will be available to help answer questions along the way if you have them. Once the website is ready for launch, I will also provide trainings for you to learn how to work with the and update the site.
Most importantly, you will own your website. I will teach you how to update your content and make changes. The only recurring fee is the hosting and scheduling services, that you pay directly to Squarespace. I think it will be best to start you on the Business plan with Squarespace, as you don’t need any of the Commerce features right now (you can always upgrade later). Additional details on available Squarespace plans can be found on their Pricing page. There are no recurring fees from me. Of course, I will be available to help and answer questions if you have them.
Optional service to setup professional E-mail from Google or Microsoft. I can also help you setup a professional e-mail to go along with your website and domain name (for example; email@example.com). With the Squarespace platform, you can get 1 year free for a single Google Workspace account. It would then be $6/month per user. If you would prefer to link your e-mail to a Microsoft Office 365 account we can do that as well. There is no free initial offer from Microsoft, but their plans start at $5/month per user.
After commitment from you, I expect the initial work to be able to be completed in approximately 2 months. The initial work is expected to take about 3 weeks, at which point I will do a design review with you. After the design review, I plan 2 weeks to make any necessary changes, finishing uploading content, and getting ready the site for launch. All this work can be done remotely via Zoom meetings, which I can host and schedule.
Project can be started with a written commitment by “The Motor City Medium” to this proposal (e-mail is sufficient).
** Payment terms for the web design services shall be two payments of $500. The first is due on project start and the second is due after project completion. Terms are negotiable. You will make the initial year payment to Squarespace just before we launch the site.
Invoices sent via Freshbooks, payments can be made online or via check. Checks should be made out to: Hager Solutions LLC
