Getting a website started is easy. Give us a call at 250-514-2208 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us you'd like a site, and we'll send you an order form. The order form asks some basic details about you and your company. Once we receive your order form, we'll set up a demo site for your review.
If you've never built a website before, it's hard to know how much you should expect to pay for the features you're getting. Website design can be costly, but because we specialize in sites and features for advisors, we are able to spread our development costs across all our clients. To you, that means we can keep our prices affordable.
We have no hidden fees. We charge a one-time setup fee for a standard advisor website. Once your site is live, we charge a monthly fee to cover the website hosting, software licensing and basic updates. Check our prices for the most up-to-date rates.
Absolutely! We offer a 10% discount to anyone who opts to pay for a year of hosting in advance or a 5% discount to those who pay semi-annually. We'll hate to see you go, but if you do decide to leave us, let us know before your next billing date, and we'll simply stop charging you.
You can pay for your site monthly, semi-annually or annually. For monthly payments, we take Visa, Mastercard, or pre-authorized debit. If you'd like to pay annually or semi-annually (and take advantage of the discount we offer our annual/semi-annual subscribers), we take Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, PayPal, e-transfer, or cheques.
You have a couple of options when it comes to securing a domain name for your new site.
A site with little customization can be up and running after as little as 30 minutes of your time. It takes us between 1 and 10 days to build a simple, professional site; the time required to build your site will depend entirely on your project specifications. After our initial consult, we'll have a better idea of your individual requirements and can provide a detailed timeline.
We don't ask our clients to sign contracts. Nobody wants to be locked into something. So we charge a simple setup fee when you order your site, then a monthly hosting/licensing fee once your site goes live. If you decide to cancel your site, you can do so any time, no questions asked. We won't charge any type of termination fee, and we'll welcome you back any time.
If your company has a compliance department, we can work with them, on your behalf, to ensure your website is properly branded, compliant and kept up-to-date.
We have built relationships with several compliance departments - ensuring rapid deployment of sites for advisors with those companies. If, however, we don't have a relationship with your compliance department, don't worry. We're very patient and will happily wait through the compliance process - at no additional charge to you. We will not charge you a monthly licensing fee until your site is given the seal of approval from your compliance department.
Absolutely. With our Content Management System, we can quite easily add new pages and features or update the content, graphics and colours used in your site. Your site should be a work in progress, and we encourage you to make changes to keep your site and its content current.
Your compliance department may provide website guidelines that dictate what can and cannot be customized, but as long as your compliance department approves of a change, there's really no limit to the amount of customization we can perform.
You might choose to:
On the first of each month, we'll send you a detailed analytics report to let you know exactly how many people have been visiting your site.
No problem! We'll happily rebrand your site to use the layout, colour scheme, logo and content associated with your new company. Your domain name doesn't have to change (unless you want it to), and we can roll out a brand new site instantly without interrupting your service.
We build our sites with a proprietary Content Management System. Our system is powerful, flexible, and by using it, we're able to keep our prices affordable. But in order to use our system, we have to host all of your website files and content.
You can, however, purchase a domain name from another service provider.
Yes. Our setup fees start at $500 for most of our clients. Our relationship with some larger financial services companies enables us to waive a portion of this fee for some advisors. If you think you may be eligible, give us a call and let us know which company you work with.
We'd hate to see you go, but if you decide to cancel your service, just send us an email. There are no cancellation fees. We'll simply stop charging your monthly subscription and as long as your payments are up-to-date, we will help transfer your domain into its own account. Let us know if you're cancelling or putting the service on hold because if you cancel permanently, we may delete your files after 60 days. If you supplied content for your site and would like to retrieve it, be sure to download it before you cancel your site.
