CCbM Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I have to pay 50% down like other web designers charge before you start my project?
A. No. After a discussion regarding your website needs, we will go over all the details of Cost for everything from acquiring your Domain Name to your Hosting Plan to our Design Costs. You’ll know up front the total cost before we begin.
Q. Does CCbM build a site for me to view before I pay?
A. Yes, if requested we will build a Demo site for you. We’ll even use your images, graphics and logo so you get a feel for what it will actually look like. Then, if you like our work we proceed to complete your live website.
Q. Why are your prices so low?
A. We charge a fare price for the work we do. Other webmasters would argue CCbM’s prices are too low. They would also remind you that “you get what you pay for”, insinuating that CCbM is a low quality web development and design company. CCbM holds the same qualifications and in most cases is more qualified than most other webmasters/designers out there. With CCbM you have nothing to lose. Give us a try. If you don’t like what we have done for you, you pay nothing.
Q. Really? I don’t have to pay if I don’t like the Demo you set up?
A. That’s true. Most all other designers and developers will charge you 50% down even before they build a demo site. Some offer they will refund your deposit money. Don’t forget to read the fine print in their agreement. If you don’t like what they are doing and you ask for a refund, they will charge for all the work they have done up to that point. You’ll be lucky if there is any deposit money left to refund to you. Usually its zero, zilch, nada, nothing.
Q. How long does it take to build my website?
A. There is no short answer due to the many variables surrounding the design and construction process. We can say, if your site is an informational website with a few images, logo, and maybe some custom graphics, we should be able to knock it out in 48 to 72 hours. Again this does depend on the amount of content you provide for your site. We have completed many 4 to 8 page websites in 24 hours.
Q. Can you fix a website that was built by another company?
A. Yes and No. It depends on a few questions we would need to ask you. If you are happy with what you have but are looking for a cheep fix because CCbM has low rates and your webmaster is too expensive, the answer would be no! Our non-client rates would apply. To answer another question before you ask. What defines a CCbM Client verses a Non Client? A CCbM Client is a Client who has or is in the process of purchasing a full web design project. A Non Client is someone looking for piece work such as fixing an existing website.
Q. What are your rates?
A. Our regular design rate is $100 per hour for Non Clients. Programing rates are higher. CCbM Clients receive a large discount on all rates once they become a client. In most cases up to 50% off. CCbM Clients receive many items free of charge. Such as extra bling, applications, apps, add-on’s and plugins.
Q. Do I need to supply anything for my web design project?
A. Yes. You will be asked to supply the entire content for your website. This includes all, images, graphics, text, logo’s, documents plus anything else you wish to appear on your site. If needed we can create custom graphics and logo’s for your site at a reduced Client rate, or possibly no charge at all.
Q. Do you give deeper discounts for non-profit and or special interest groups?
A. Yes. Contact us and lets talk. All non profit organizations & non profit special interest groups will be required to submit proof of your non profit status including your non profit Tax ID for verification.
Q. Does CCbM offer Website Maintenance Plans?
A. Yes. You can read more about our Maintenance Plans by clicking here. As usual our prices are way below competitors plans. If you find similar business offering a lower price, let us know. We may be able to match or beat their price. (We say “May be able to” because there are those who will cut their price below their and our cost in order to simply get your business, then raise your rates after they hook you up.)
