Rates for Web Design and Website Redesign

I offer a wide selection of affordable rates for designing websites because every site owner has different requirements and prices will vary between different layouts. Some clients need a custom web design and others need a website redesign. The rates for both are very similar as there is usually just as much work fixing a website as there is in setting up an original design.

I also offer responsive web design so the size of the pages will adjust to whichever mobile device is being used, however this incurs a slightly higher fee for redesigned sites due to more time spent verifying it works in all devices.

Low prices are maintained on Lori's Web Design because I write HTML code by hand, which results in no need to buy or upgrade expensive web design software like Dreamweaver (I use a text editor to write code). I am not a hosting company and I don't sell domains, so that is not included in my fees, however I can arrange hosting and help you choose the right domain for your site. My rates at $30 per hour are lower than some designers because I don't design software programs, however if a section of your site needs programming I can help you find someone. I usually don't work on large e-commerce sites for that reason, and prefer working on personal sites or small business websites.

See the About page for more info on my design methods and the Web Design Portfolio for sites I have designed or redesigned. Feel free to contact my clients for references.

If your site is having ranking problems you may need a SEO Analysis before proceeding. Please see the Contact page or call me at 509-397-6000 if you are interested
in purchasing any of the services listed below.

Web Design Rates for up to 5 pages:

The data for a 10 page site also applies to a smaller site* except it only covers up to 5 pages.

* I do not recommend less than 10 pages because search engine prefer sites with lots of pages and sites that grow frequently. Also the more pages you have the more links you have pointing back at your home page, which increases your ranking. If you want to start out slow and add pages later then you may prefer this option.

$550.00
(with 1/2 down and the other 1/2 due upon completion)
For more information fill out the form below.

Web Design Rates for a One Page Website:

It takes just as long to set up the home page for a multiple page site as it does a one page site except there are less links in the menu. Once the layout is settled on it usually doesn't take very long to set up the inside pages (usually 10 to 20 minutes each, unless there are a lot of forms, images or other detailed info on those pages).

* I do not recommend less than 10 pages because search engine prefer sites with lots of pages and sites that grow frequently. Also the more pages you have the more links you have pointing back at your home page, and the more keywords you can get in your titles, which increase your ranking. However, if you want to start out slow and add pages later then you may prefer this option.

$350.00
(with 1/2 down and the other 1/2 due upon completion)
For more information fill out the form below.

Website Redesign

The price for a Website Redesign is similar to designing a site from scratch, unless the site needs to be moved to a new host and more pages added, etc. If your website is having ranking problems or has been penalized by one of Google's algorithms then a SEO Analysis Report may be needed first to determine original design flaws and total costs. For more information fill out the form below.


Responsive Web Design

The rate for a responsive website (displays in all mobile devices as well as on computers) depends on the number of pages, complexity of design, etc. Please fill out the quote form below.

Link Analysis and Disavow for Penguin Penalty

If you believe your site has been penalized by Google's Penguin algorithm, I can do a link analysis of your site to determine the quality of your links and submit a disavow file to Google as well as request removal of any bad links pointing at your site. The price for this service is based on how many unnatural links are pointing at your site (they each need to be checked visually) so I need to check your website before providing an estimate. For instance, a website with 44 bad, or suspect links, took about an hour and a half to do the analysis and submit the disavow file, or $45.00. If you are interested in this service please fill in the form below and provide the date your website dropped in ranking or traffic and the name of your website in the comment section.

Website Analysis for a Panda Penalty

If your website was hit by Google's Panda Algorithm, I can do an analysis of your website to check for over-optimization of content and recommend changes. Fill out the form below for more info and include the date your ranking or traffic dropped and your website address in the comment box.

Consultation Fee

If you would like advice so you can fix the site yourself I provide a consultation service either by phone or email. Please call between 12 noon and 5pm Pacific Time: 509-397-6000

$30.00 Per Hour
