The price for each package is a base price that includes specified items for that package. All projects are billed at our hourly rate over that of the projects price specified if the time exceeds the quote agreed upon.
A design package no matter what it is, is nothing more than a guideline. It gives you an idea of price and what is included in that price.
We keep you in the loop throughout the project and let you know if anything is going to incur extra time so there are no budget suprises when we send you the final invoice.
Never be afraid to ask questions, nor let us know just what it is that you want.
We are here for you and the more information we have the better we can achieve the project that you have in mind.
Please provide us essential documents, such as text and images on a timely basis. Our developers will not enter data or create content. We need you to provide us with the content for your site, or the pages cannot be created. The number one reason that web sites are delayed is because of a lack of content.
Please provide as much information about your business as you can. This will allow us to identify with your business and create a site that is in tune with your business. Not every business is created the same. The more information you can give us about who you are and what your business does the better.
Please respond promptly to our requests. We are not responsible for missed deadlines due to lack of content or signoff requests. That is why Codtongue's has an estimated date of completion" on all contracts. You came to Codtongue's with a need and if we excepted to help fill this need, than lets work together to make it happen.
Set due dates for your projects and make them clear to us. We do need time to complete a task however large or small. We only have so many developers and we may be working on several projects at once. That is why we ask for prompt response to content requests. We can do "rush jobs" but you will need to let us know this and there will be added cost to this request. Project deadlines are very important to us, but a timeline must be set and agreed upon by both parties.
Most of all, we ask that you become as involved as much as you can in the creation process of your site. You came to us with a "Dream" or an "Idea" of something wonderful, help us make it a reality...
We accept MasterCard, Visa, Bank Transfer via PayPal or Payza.
Yes. On your client account page there will be a link where you can view your site anytime you wish. The site will only go live when you are completely happy with the final project.
We require a 50% non-refundable deposit up front before any work is started and the remaining balance to be paid upon final completion of the project.
All project contracts have a estimated date of completion" on them as agreed upon by both parties. So that your project's final completion is never held up and delivered on time.
This largely depends on what is involved, it is crucial for the customer to provide us with the essential documents, such as text and images on a timely basis. A simple Landing Page can be up and running in 2 or 3 days More complex projects can take months, it really depends on how much work needs to be done and how fast a client can provide what is needed. We will involve the client as much or as little as they desire. Some prefer to be part of the process every step of the way, while others would rather let us make the decisions. When we know your exact requirements, we will send you a contract with a realistic end date. We know that project deadlines are very important and we will always do our utmost to meet them.
