We are an existing environmental testing company. We have a large customer base, but do not have a website. The site must look very professional, but it's not going to be a complicated undertaking. We'll want 5-6 pages and will provide text/contents and about 6-7 photos.
We are working with an online project management service called Base Camp. The designer will be working with us using that interface, but will also need to incorporate the Base Camp sign-in into our webpage for our customers to use.
Currently we are a service organization, but we will soon be adding engine parts for sale. We'll need to update the site when that time comes. It's important that we keep the site affordable and especially affordable to maintain. Can the site be built so we can maintain ourselves for simple edits ... news, etc? We will still want professional assistance for some changes to the site, including the addition of the parts page.
Please provide estimated cost for changes and updates once the initial building of the site is complete. Also, if the site can be built to allow our office to maintain, describe any difference in initial cost, and a brief explanation how it would work and how complex internal office updating would be.
Lastly, include any optimization efforts and search engine submission services you offer or include, and the additional cost if not included.
