Of course price is important.

But it shouldn't be the only, or even the primary, deciding factor when choosing a Web design company to develop your corporate Web site.

The World Wide Web has revolutionized the corporate public relations, promotion and marketing arena. A Web presence can be a powerful marketing tool - or it can be a public relations disaster.

A strategically designed Web site can speak volumes about a company's attitude, its stability, its integrity, and professionalism. A strategic web site can build trust.

The best corporate sites project quality, strength and longevity. Your potential customers want to know that they are dealing with a firm that is well established and will be around next year, not a company whose Web site projects a new start-up operating out of a suburban garage.

A poorly designed and constructed site speaks loudly about a lack of commitment to quality that will be associated with the company's products and services. In some instances, it is better to have no Web site than one that does PR damage to your firm.

Our Web Design Process

We discuss the project with the client to determine the specific requirements of the project (number of pages, number of custom graphics or animations, level of interactivity desired: online ordering, search engines, chat rooms, etc.)

We also discuss with the client their business objectives for the proposed Web site and help develop a marketing strategy plan for the site and for building or strengthening their brand identity on the Internet.

Based on our understanding of the client's requirements, we prepare a written quotation so that the client knows the project cost in advance. We don't bill by the hour, but instead on per item costs which enables us to offer firm project price at the onset of the project.

No two projects are the same. Each client has a unique corporate identity, distinct services or products, and different objectives for their Web site. Our job is to create a strategically-designed Web site which will emphasize the client's uniqueness and meet the client's Web site objectives by differentiating the client in the marketplace from their competitors.

We don't use clip art - all our client sites are custom creations. This ensures a distinctive look. Blue Cat Design has been creating award-winning Web sites since 1995. Our experience shows in every client site we produce.

Price versus Value

All Web pages are not created equal.

Shopping for a Web design firm is not like price comparison shopping for the "same" item in different stores. As in any other design and marketing medium, the results and their effectiveness can vary wildly according to the skills, talent and expertise of the design firm.

Our award-winning design services are affordable and offer great business value. We produce a wide range of sites from small and simple to large and complex - and our prices vary accordingly to the scale of the project. Factors we take into consideration are the number of pages, custom graphics, custom interactive programming, etc. that are included in the site but here are a few entry-level examples. Online e-commerce stores with interactive online credit card ordering start around $3,000. A results-driven entry-level site is $2,000.-$5,000. depending on size and options chosen.

If you'd like to compare Web design prices? Check out Net Marketing's list of what US Web design firms are charging for e-commerce sites. Here's another interesting market survey. and if you're still curious, another survey.

You could save money and get a techie in your IS department or maybe even your neighbour's teenage son or daughter to throw some Web pages together for you. You might even find a person trying to open a web design business who will give you a "real deal" price so they can practice on your business site and gain a sample for sparce portfolio - but do you really want your business to be a guinea pig?

Before you entrust someone with the responsibility of creating a marketing vehicle to present your corporate image to the global community, stop and ask yourself, do they have the design and internet marketing skills and experience to create a Web presence which will enhance your company's image rather than harm it.

A well-conceived web site with business savvy built-in from the start can generate a far greater return on your online investment. Our internet business strategists can help implement search engine marketing techniques to make your site generate more leads or sales, advertising revenue, plus internal cost savings so that the pay back time on your investment is significantly shorter than you'd imagine.

Remember, a "bargain" Web site that doesn't work is no bargain...
