Creating a great website includes more than just design.
Stop hurting your brand by buying cheap web design packages, and start building your brand correctly.
With 94% of people saying a bad website is a reason they mistrust a business, not investing in your new website, or using a cheap web design company will limit your business growth and hurt your brand.
When done correctly, the benefits of having a professional content-first website include increased leads and sales, SEO traffic growth, increased customer trust, better positioning of your business as a leader, and growing your brand.
Our SEO web design team is comprised of senior-level website and print designers, and digital strategists from top digital agencies and brands who have built websites for many big brands.
In addition to helping national brands, the Linchpin team has helped businesses around Raleigh, Charlotte, Asheville, Wilmington, Wake Forest, and The Outer Banks design and develop websites that perform.
After leading digital strategies at large agencies and consulting firms for over 15 years, I wanted to build a digital agency that businesses could believe in.
By prioritizing project efficiency, our client relationships, and caring about our clients’ success, we’re able to achieve better marketing ROI, and increased MQL, SQL, and MRR for our partners.

How mush does a website design cost?
That is a great question, however unfortunately there is not a simple answer. There are many aspects that influence the pricing for a website
The only thing we can tell you about our website design pricing is that the majority of our clients pay between $7,000 – $18,000 for one of our custom websites.
Do you do a hourly rate pricing or a per project cost?
All of our website design projects are scoped on a by-project rate.
Is SEO included in my website?
Yes. At our core, we are an SEO company, who just happens to also design great websites. Thus, we understand the importance of SEO, and how to integrate it throughout your entire web design project.
Who will be working on my website design?
For all website design projects, we use our team of designers (who are located in Michigan) in our Linchpin core. We don’t outsource our website design work.
Will I have a project manager for my account?
Yes. Our founder manages all accounts and is the point person for every project we do – so there are no “middlemen”.
How long will it take to launch my website?
Typically we can take a website from concept to launch anywhere from 12-20 weeks – depending on complexity and functionality needed.
What CMS do you use?
This is dependent on the goal of the website. For most eCommerce websites we use Shopify; for B2B websites we typically use WordPress or Craft. However, we have worked with many different CMS over the years, so there are few limitations.
Do you host our website?
We don’t currently offer website hosting. However, if you need a recommendation for which hosting to use, we can provide that at the start of the project.
How many concepts and revisions do we get?
We usually provide a couple of concepts, and don’t usually have a hard limit on revisions (within reason). We want to work towards providing you with a website you can be proud to show off.
Do you offer ongoing maintenance or strategy?
Yes, we offer website maintenance, SEO, strategy, content creation, and brand strategy. Usually, if you opt into ongoing maintenance we will showcase your business in our portfolio since we know the design will remain consistent.
