Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the website design process take?
Depending on our current workload, the amount of time it takes to complete a project can vary. Generally, new custom websites can take between 6 to 12 weeks to complete. Theme websites and landing pages are usually faster.
How much does a new website cost?
The cost of a website varies greatly depending on many factors: theme vs. custom, number of pages, advanced functionality, project timeline, custom graphics, number of products, etc. Generally, our custom sites cost $20,000 or more while our theme websites are usually between $6,000 and $8,000.
Does Beanstalk write the text content for a new website?
More often than not, clients choose to supply the content for their website. We do offer copywriting services and can do this for the customer if they choose to have this service. When clients supply the content themselves, sometimes procrastination happens and can become an issue. Please ask for help if you are falling behind!
Can my competitors click on my Pay-Per-Click ads to run up my costs?
We get this question a lot. Yes, a malicious competitor can click on your ads, but luckily the costs of the clicks are immediately refunded by the platform. For instance, Google has an advanced algorithm for detecting malicious clicks and it works very well.
Do Beanstalk's digital marketing contracts lock us in for a set term?
All of our contracts are month-to-month and you can cancel at any time. This way, we have to prove our effectiveness every month.
How much will the clicks cost for my Pay-Per-Click campaign?
The cost of clicks vary based on many factors including the keyword, geographic location, industry, competitive landscape, and more. We have tools that will help us estimate the cost before starting a campaign, but the only way to get truly accurate numbers is to actually run the ads.
Will Beanstalk maintain my website?
We offer maintenance packages. Some maintenance packages only include updates for the security, plugins, etc. on the site, while others include blocks of time each month that can be used for anything. Many of our clients are able to make basic changes to the website themselves when it is developed in WordPress. We include one hour of free training with every new site, but additional training can be purchased. If you opt out of a maintenance plan, you can always hire us for hourly website work.
How much does website hosting cost?
As of 1/1/2020, we charge $40 per month for our standard hosting package. This price includes backups with multiple layers of redundancy. It also includes server-wide updates and security patches, but does not include updates for an individual WordPress site. We can perform WordPress updates and maintenance as part of one of our maintenance packages.
How much do digital marketing campaigns cost?
Digital marketing campaigns are highly variable and budget-based. Expect to spend between $500 and $5,000+ per month.
