How does the Payment Plan work?
A deposit of 20% is required upfront to get your project scheduled and the ball rolling. The balance is paid off via FIVE payments.
If you’d like to save 10%, you might consider the one-time payment option.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payment via Credit Card (via Stripe). The payment plan works on a subscription basis for the period of the payment period.
In other words, your monthly repayments are automatically debited from your account for your convenience. We also waiver the 3% charge usually included to cover Credit Card fees.
Is ongoing monthly support required?
Yes. At the conclusion of the project, you’ll need to subscribe to our ongoing management and maintenance support. This service means you have your own on-call web support team available and it ensures your website remains aligned to SEO best practice and up to date in terms of security and software. We also make content changes for you as required. See Top Star Support for more details.
Are there any other costs?
No, there are no hidden fees from our side. All costs are disclosed on this page.
However, if you require a premium plugin, you’ll need to purchase this from a third-party provider and provide the necessary plugin download and licence details. We’re happy to help you look for compatible free options or guide you in the purchase of a premium option.
If you don’t yet have a domain name, you’ll have to register a domain name, which is around $20 per year (through Siteground). You’ll also need to procure web hosting; through Siteground, this will cost you from around $90 a year. These are payments to a third-party (not to us), and these are costs you’ll incur irrespective of whether you contract us or not. If you do decide to use our services, we will guide you through this process. You don’t need to do anything yet.

How long will the project take?
As a guideline, the project itself typically takes 4-6 weeks.
How long will it take to see results in terms of SEO? This is a highly complex answer dependent on the age of your domain, the quality and frequency of your blog postings, the social media and online engagement you build, and the competitiveness of your industry. Our record? 4 weeks!
Yes, for one of our clients, it took just four weeks for his website to go from the Google graveyard to first on first page. (And it’s still there three years later.) However, his was a low-competition industry. He had a domain name older than six months, and he zealously applied all we taught him.
Generally speaking, definite progress can be seen between 3 to 6 months.
How will we communicate?
While I’m available via phone, correspondence will take place largely via email and a dedicated project page on my website. I’ll provide a DropBox link for your logo, images, etc.
