Hello Everyone.

I am a newbie trying to break into local website design for small/medium sized businesses.
I wanted to collect some opinions and advice on pricing for something like this.

This is what I have in mind.

- Up to five pages - Customized Adept / Blueprint template
- Slider with up to 3 images/pics
- Google Maps
- Custom graphic work on the background
- Integration of their exiting social media accounts
- Contact form ( gravity forms)
- Pop up to build their list ( Pippity, pop up domination..etc )
- One free year of hosting
- Responsive design....which no one seems to be offering in my area.
- On page optimization..of course
- Misc plugin installation such as Super Chache, Ping Optimizer.. etc
- Blog with their first two Keyword optimized articles to sweeten the deal.

Is $ 750.00 a good price for this?
....too high? ....or am I giving away the whole farm?

In my area rhere's people selling some really ugly websites for $ 199 - $300
And I am sure a lot of Biz owners would rather pay I little more for good design
and function.

Thank you all in advance.

Hi,

this is the presales forum for questions related to purchasing iThemes or PluginBuddy products, in the other forums we provide technical support for those products.

As such, your question is beyond the scope, so from the "official" support side of iThemes you should not expect a reply, if someone from the community wants to chime in, that is fine of course,

thanks for understanding,
Ronald

A one-time webdesign for your client is one thing, doing ongoing SEO is another.  Being a client of an SEO firm, my e-commerce website was crappy compared to some of my competitors yet doing ongoing SEO is what got me customers for my website.  It's better to do SEO than web design in my opinion now that I do SEO and have my own online marketing team.
