Clay orders the Emerging package
Clay gets two layouts: Home and Book.
On his Home page, we show Clay’s bio and a catalogue of his books, linking to each books’ own page.
Clay has three published novels, so we duplicate his book layout three times for each book, at no extra cost.
Clay’s fans and prospective publishers get in touch with him using his contact form.
Abby gets everything that Clay gets, plus a ‘General’ layout, a Blog, and free domain and hosting for a year.
The flexibility of the ‘General’ layout allows Abby to create a variety of pages, including her ‘About’, ‘FAQ’, and ‘Teacher’s Resources’ pages.
Abby’s blog is built on the user-friendly WordPress platform and lets her regularly add fresh content to her website. Although Abby has no coding knowledge or previous experience with using websites, she manages her blog with ease.
For her first year with Jin & Co., Abby gets her domain name and the hosting of her website for free, valued at $330. After this year, Abby starts paying A$330 per year for the Website Essentials package.
Kendra gets everything that Clay and Abby get, plus an ‘events’ layout, an email newsletter, and free SSL for a year.
Kendra’s events page allows her to promote events on her website, where she can post the date, location, information, and links to tickets for all her upcoming events.
Kendra also maintains an email newsletter. Her fans sign up using a form on her website, whose emails and names are collected in her own mailing list. Kendra uses it as her main tool to connect and stay in touch with her most loyal fans.
For her first year with Jin & Co., Kendra gets her domain name and the hosting of her website for free, valued at A$330, and SSL for free, valued at A$49.50. After the first year, Abby starts paying A$330 per year for the Website Essentials package, and A$49.50 per year for SSL.
Our websites are built using layouts. A layout is a template used to build multiple webpages. One layout has a different visual structure from another, but multiple pages may use the same layout, with different content, at no extra cost. You can have an unlimited number of pages from each layout, at no extra cost. For example, if you bought the ‘Published’ package, you can use the ‘General Page’ layout for your About Page, your FAQ page, and your page for resources for teachers. Each layout can therefore be repurposed for all kinds of pages.
Upon the commencement of the project, we bill 50% of the price of the package you chose (so if you chose ’Established’ we bill A$1137.5). We then rework the design to create mockups using your content. Once you approve the design of these mockups at the design review stage, we bill the 50% balance due.
If you chose to get hosting & domain with us. We start billing you A$330/year as soon as you approve the website for deployment onto the web. For the ’Established’ and ’Brand’ packages, billing begins one year after you approve the website for deployment.
All Jin & Co. websites are powered by the WordPress content management system, which is web-based software non-tech savvy users can access using their web browser, to manage their website content easily. This can include updating your about page, blogging, and replying to comments, etc.
If you need someone to update content for you, check out our Monthly Management Packages.
The cost of a redesign will vary according to each project. I provide quotes for redesigns based on an estimation of the number of hours it will take. My hourly rate for website updates is $72/hour AUD.
I also offer ‘Monthly Management’ packages, if you need someone to update the content and/or design of your website on a periodic basis.
More info here, Monthly Management Packages.
Select designs are premium designs which add onto the cost of packages because they are more complex to construct or which use Jin & Co.’s original artwork. Non-‘Select’ designs cost the base amount of the package you choose. Whereas all select designs add A$300 onto the cost of the package you choose.
For example, if you choose the ‘Emerging’ package with a non-Select design, the cost of your website will be A$990. But if you select the ‘Emerging’ package with a ‘Select’ design, the cost of your website will be A$1,290.
Similarly, if you select the ‘Brand’ package with a ‘Select’ design, the cost of your website will go from A$2,675 to A$2,975.
If our packages above don’t include a layout you have in mind, we can create a custom layout for A$495 per layout.
For more details, see our Website Essentials package.
