FAQ's on Christian Marketing Done Right
What are CMDR's primary services?
We do everything from logo and web design to writing, editing, proofreading, search engine optimization, web design, graphic design, media relations, media monitoring and more.
Most clients look for a full-service approach: web design, hosting, brochures, post-cards, content (text) creation and more.
How much will a website cost me?
The cost of a web site varies depending on the site and complexity. A small web site with just a few static pages would cost around $800 whereas a full ecommerce website with a large number of pages and a CMS system could cost $2000-$5000. New websites are like cars ... how many accessories are you looking to add on?
How much will collateral marketing materials cost?
The cost of designing your brochures, newsletters, business cards, white papers and other print materials is discounted when bundled with the purchase of a new website. Complexity and types of printed materials is always a factor, so realistically, it's completely up to you. We can design a simple brochure for $200 or an 80 page book for $1200. The key is knowing your needs and your budget. We also have solid relationships with local printers and turn-around time is fast and friendly.
How long will it take for a new website to be designed?
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will meet it for you. The most common delay in the project is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client. Keep this in mind when a deadline is in place.
How do I update my website?
If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask CMDR to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependent upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information. In other situations, we can provide a Content Management Solution (and teach you how to use it) if you plan to make changes and update images and data more frequently. Regardless of the solution, it's entirely up to you!
What type of after-sales services does CMDR offer?
- Website Design: We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that your website need never get out of date.
- Your Public and Media Relations Campaigns:
We don't stop with web design, hosting and SEO. We create solid PR and media campaigns which generate credibility and traffic to your new site.
Regardless of your budget, it's important to let the media and your potential clients know about it. Consider writing a few articles - Q&A format is always a winner!
Can I accept credit cards on my website?
Yes! There are essentially two main methods of accepting credit cards. The first method is where you use your own credit card machine and process the card payment yourself and the second method uses an online clearance company. Once you are sure which method you wish to use, we can design your website accordingly.
Can I register a domain name through CMDR?
Yes absolutely! Domain registration is an important service we offer and is part of the web design and hosting services package for new website clients. Domain registration is less than $20 per year and hosting is around $200 per year. Again, churches and ministries receive discounted rates. Be sure to register for these!
