How does the Payment Plan work?
A deposit of $539.80 (i.e. 20%) is required upfront to get your project scheduled and the ball rolling. The balance is paid off via FOUR payments of $539.80 (i.e. 20%).
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 Direct Bank Transfer (bank deposit or online banking), and through Paypal or Credit Card (via Stripe). There is a 3% charge to cover the fees charged on Paypal and Credit Card payments.
Due to the high cost of Paypal and Credit Card fees, we do recommend using Direct Bank Transfer. Both the savings on the one-time payment option and the payment plans are designed to make payments with this method feasible.
Are there any other costs?
No. Other than the deposit and the monthly payments, we charge no other fees. There is no retainer or hidden costs.
However, 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 webhosting; 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.
