My design service includes most features you would ever need. Although I have different pricing options based a on custom vs semi-custom design, I don't offer different packages based on the features included.
This type of fixed-feature solution won't be suitable for every person or budget. If you only want a custom design and have no need for the extras I offer (website editor, blog, calendar, mailing list, mobile site, membership system, etc), you may want to look into a lower cost designer or consider using one of my semi-custom templates.
At the same time, I try to avoid projects that will require a lot of additional functionality or custom development beyond what is already included with my service. The extra features I offer (calendar, blog, mailing list, membership system, etc) have already been developed and are built directly into my VedaCMS software. All I have to do is set-up the pages and add special blocks of code so those features can be activated and used. I love this setup because it saves a lot of time with technical development.
Target Design Market...
Due to my hectic family schedule and limited availability, I prefer to focus on a very specific design market. These are the only client types I currently take on right now:
- Independent Escorts
- FBSM / Sensual Touch Providers
- BDSM / Dommes
- Tantra / Sensuality Life Coach
I am best suited to clients planning to use their website for advertising offline services. Although I admire women who wish to generate revenue from online services (ie: paid membership systems, e-commerce store, etc) , this isn't the design market I currently wish to target.
Availability & Post Launch Support...
One of the reasons I've spent so much time developing and improving upon my VedaCMS website manager is because my schedule is too tight to perform basic data entry tasks for clients. My VedaCMS website manager is included at no additional cost and provides the tools you need to manage your own content. The only exception is the design itself, which isn't editable within VedaCMS.
Although I am available for paid support/maintenance after your site is launched, I ask that clients use their website manager when it's possible to do so. The only time I'll make a change that they could do on their own is if they have problems getting something to work after several attempts (and I'll try walking them through it step-by-step before doing it for them). Of course, you're always welcome to email me with questions or usage instructions. I'm excited when clients use the software and am happy to point them in the right direction. It also helps me know where I need to improve upon VedaCMS in the future.
For other types of support or change requests, I work on tickets every Monday and Friday unless it's an emergency or Rush request. Please visit my Support Page for pricing and information about my post-launch maintenance process. Also, please understand that I work exclusively through email and am unavailable by phone. I have more information about that policy here.
Please consider everything above to decide if I would be a good fit for you. I don't want to lose your business, but I'd much rather you be completely satisfied by finding someone who can meet all of your needs. The majority of clients I design for end up staying with me for several years, so I think my system works most of the time. Despite any official sounding language throughout my site, I'm actually pretty laid back and flexible. I've been designing exclusively for this market since 2005 and can only think of a handful of people who I didn't satisfy or work well with.
I know this is a big decision and investment. If you have any questions, please feel welcome email me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you'd like to know more about me personally, feel free to read this bio.
