As mentioned before, I work mostly on a barter system. However if you don’t have anything to Barter then I do accept cash.
Instead of cash, I normally would like to barter what you are naturally in business for, either goods or services.
I believe that creating a community of trust is very important and as my clientele shows, I appreciate working with like minded people.
Most of the websites I build as a rule of thumb takes around 20 hours to complete from when we agree on the concept of the design then the site goes live.
When it comes to shopping carts, forums or Integrated Library Systems, it can take as long as 40-100 hours before it is completed depending on how complex your request is.
Hang on Dave, I don’t have anything that we can directly barter, what do I do?
If you don’t have anything to barter and wouldn’t mind paying cash, then it will be the gladly accepted.
Currently Operas from SydLETS are not accepted as payment.
In essence, here are my services that I specialise on:
All are in Australian Currency
My standard charge for something I did for suewhite.com.au is $300.00 so it’s highly affordable. It shouldn’t take a lot of time when you know what you want and willing to use a template that is freely available. If it’s something non standard, then a charge of $50.00 per hour will apply.
A standard website for example is what I did for Sue White.
If you need something more sophisticated like a full e-commerce site with the standard templates then the charge is a flat $2000.00 which will include the data entry of 100 items. After that the $50.00 per hour fee will apply..or you can data entry it yourself (full 1 hour training will be included as a complementary feature)
A standard website is something like what I did for blackworms.com.au
If you have a personal library of more then 100 books, CDs, DVDs, Journals or etch and would like a professional library that is accessible for yourself or for your friends or community group then I can also help. A flat $2000.00 which will include any data import and the data entry of 100 items maximum. After that then $50.00 per hour fee will apply.
Also for those that want to automate part of their lives using excel or MS Access or other types of programming then I will be available however it will be charged at $100.00 per hour.
Please note that web hosting and domain name are extra charges of $100.00 per annum which includes backups, alert scripts (ie alerts me if there are security risks/ threats, software upgrades and general maintenance and minor cosmetic changes)
I am sure there will be many people from many countries that can do a better deal. There are a few aces up my sleeve though and if you contract your work to me then I am sure you will be glad that you did go with me.
When I first started this website at January 2011 there was NO one out there that offered a similar service then what I do, but now barter website design services are popping up everywhere.
The main difference is that I am passionate on creating websites when it comes to my hobbies. So if it’s something that is aligned with what I am interested in as well then rest assured that the website that you have commissioned me to do has a better chance of going live online and be well maintained afterwards.
Also, due to the pride of work I do and for time allocations, I have several conditions.
1. I will only create 5 Websites per year.
2. Before you engage me as your website creator and administrator, we will have an hour just to get to know each other and to know each other’s requirements and expectations. If at the end of that time we discover that we are not a compatible fit, then we will mutually go our seperate ways.
3. I see myself as a reasonable, fair and upfront person. As a prospective client this is what is expect as well.
4. Respecting time, I expect that you as a prospective client have all the avaialble data on hand, knows what you want and ready to go. Most of my websites are created in a matter of days. The only exception are the ecommerce or the asset management services.
Please note that this bartering service is not for everyone. If you think you are not classified then everyone then you may be the person or organisation I would like to work with and I look forward to hearing from you.
