Website Design FAQs

How mush does a website design cost?

That is a great question; however, unfortunately, there is not a simple answer. Many aspects 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.

Is SEO included in my website?

Yes. At our core, we are an SEO company, who also happens to 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?

We use our team of designers (who are located in Michigan) in our Linchpin core for all website design projects. We don’t outsource our website design work.

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.
