Leslie Goettsch, owner of DanceCheer.NET by Leslie's Best, Twenty five years experience in advanced dance and drill team studies include being a dance major at SHSU; a Kilgore Rangerette; creator and WebMaster of DanceCheer.NET; contributing writer for the DanceCheer.NET Spirit Library tips and articles; a member of the Dance/Drill Team Directors of America and The Auxiliary Dance Alliance (TADA), a dancer in the SHSU Dance Company and Encore!

Depending on whether you are interested in designing a website for personal or commercial use, there are several fees to consider when contemplating a Web site:

 


Design Fees


 

There is a one time set up fee of $15.00 for all new Leslie's Best customers.

 

Select from two different web page design options:

 

Standardized Website Packages

Flexibility is an integral part of the Web services provided by Leslie's Best Web Services. However, we do offer some standard Web packages that adhere to specific Web styles, sizes and components at a set price. All of the Standard Packages consist of a single Web page template with varying limits on the amount of text, graphics, photos and other Web-design features. You simply click the link to view the template, replace the text, graphics and colors with your own version, and Voila...inexpensive and nice looking website! We can also provide customized features like backgrounds, graphic headers,special fonts, font colors, etc. for an additional fee on any of the standard web packages. Please contact us for quotes. There is only a setup fee if you provide these items yourself.

Weekly (and monthly) Website Statistics are available to ALL customers whose Web sites are both designed and hosted by Leslie's Best. From these reports you can see how many visitors are coming to your web site each day/week/month, which of your web pages are the most popular, how they found your site (referrers) and even which hours of the day the activity on your Web site takes place.

Please note that headers are counted as graphics and, if you are particular about the font being used for your headers, or you want certain colors or shadows, then the fonts may need to be designed as a graphic.

Some more common fonts that may be used without creating headers are:

Andale Mono       Arial       Arial Black
Comic Sans MS       Courier New       Georgia       Impact
Times New Roman       Trebuchet MS       Verdana

Updates & Maintenance

One of the many distinct advantages that a Web site has for advertising or providing customer information when compared with traditional printed ads is that a Web site can be changed as many times and as often as desired.

Leslie's Best prides itself on prompt responses to requests for changes and updates. Frequently an e-mail or Fax exchange is all that's necessary for sending modifications or update instructions. Usually those changes can be made within a matter of hours.

Fees for changes and additions are charged on an hourly basis at $40.00 per hour (compare at $75 per hour for most web designers!) with a 1/2 hour minimum. If your Web site will require regular, ongoing changes you may save money by prepaying using one of the pre-paid Web Site Maintenance Options shown below.

If you purchased one of the Standard Website Packages listed above, and want to add new pages designed from the template formats, you will receive a 25% discount on any following Economy or Pro web pages that are designed. We treat this as if you were simply adding pages.

Consulting & Training

Due to frequent requests for consulting, Leslie's Best is now offering consulting and training services for an hourly fee. People often want to design a web page with their own web design software, but need assistance on basic procedures to customize it and add a more professional look which fall beyond the capabilities of their web design software. Leslie's Best can consult you on anything from search engine registration to graphics layout. In addition, we can train you so that you will not always be paying a consultant to perform basic tasks like updating or maintaining your site.

Search Engines

Your Web site is only effective when people can find it. If you're not listed high on the major search engines' result lists, you lose...nobody shows up no matter how pretty or attractive you made your Web site. Your site might as well be invisible. Worse yet, the investment you made in building an attractive site will not yield any dividends if nobody sees it. Don't spend months or even years in search of that golden formula that will get your site the exposure it needs. Over 90% of the search engine traffic to most Web sites comes from 8 to 10 major search engines. Many of the search engine registration services do not target these top ten search engines.

Leslie's Best offers search engine consulting starting at only $49.50 per hour (minimum of $175). We offer a free initial 30 minute consultation. This includes checking website code, webpage content, keyword and description size limitations, and other factors important to search engine placement.

Image Scanning Services

Scanning of non-copyrighted images and photographs for use in Web pages, screen savers, desktop publishing, etc. is available at a cost of $5.00/image. Image manipulation is charged at the standard per/hour basis.

Secure Order Forms

Convenient encrypted online order forms can be designed for a one time fee of $75 or more if it requires specialized design, large graphics or extra product fields. Order Forms may be housed on our secure server for an additional $40/year (prepaid biannually). Having secure order forms allow your customers to browse and shop conveniently online. With encrypted order forms, you can set up a store front and take secure credit card orders for products sold or receive sensitive information in items like online applications.

The $75 design fee will utilize one of two form templates. The least expensive option is this generic form which includes one graphic text header (or your company logo or currently existing header), up to five products, up to four similar product categories (see QTY., ITEM#, ITEM NAME, SIZE, MATERIAL COLOR, TRIM COLOR, WEBBING COLOR, INK COLOR, PRICE EACH, TOTAL PRICE), your selection of color for the background on the section divider lines (see Shipping Address, Billing Address, Product Information, etc.), shipping charges as formatted if applicable, credit card payment options, your address and phone, a link to your site, and a navigation bar if you already have one designed.

The second form template is more time consuming and thus more expensive. It utilizes the products list form which includes one graphic text header (or your company logo or currently existing header), up to five products, up to four similar product categories (see QTY., CHEERMIX PRODUCT, UNIT PRICE, TOTAL PRICE SPECIAL OFFER, etc.), your selection of color for the background on the section divider lines (see Shipping Address, Billing Address, Product Information, etc.), shipping charges as formatted if applicable, credit card payment options, your address and phone, a link to your site, and a navigation bar if you already have one designed.

Professional Logos Starting at Only $195!

In today's past paced, high tech world, creating a professional identity through an eye catching company logo is the most essential marketing tool you can utilize to get your company noticed. The image a logo projects is equated to the projected quality and value of your organization's products and services in a prospective customer's eye. A Leslie's Best logo is one of the most important marketing investments your organization can make. The only problem is that most small businesses do not have the marketing budgets that larger corporations have, and this makes it even harder for smaller businesses to get a leg up on the "Big Dogs." Now you CAN have the same visual impact that the Big Dogs have...all at AWESOME prices! Price other "discount logo designers" and you'll find them ranging $350 (one color design templates) to over $850.00!
