A lot. My base design service includes everything outlined below, regardless of whether you choose a template or custom website.
Many features listed below are built into my VedaCMS web site manager, which is a full-featured content management system that will be included with your web site. If you don't want or need one of these features, it can simply be left off of your web site. If you still have questions, be sure to check out my Ordering FAQ.

Am I Right For You?
It's just as important to find a designer who is compatible with your needs...
Please take a moment to review this article from my Knowledge Base to see if I'm a good match for you.
Although I would love to have your business, it's far more important to me that you are 100% satisfied with your investment and I want to be sure I can provide that. I strive to be as up front as possible about what to expect when working with me so you can make an informed decision.

Design Credit Removal : $100
As outlined within my Terms of Service, a design credit link is required in the footer area of every website I design. Because this link is how I generate most of my new business, a surcharge of $100 is required to have it removed.
Portfolio Removal : $50
Like the design credit above, showcasing samples of my work is an essential part of how I generate new business. As outlined in my TOS, I reserve the right to display a screenshot in my portfolio of any designs I create. This can be waived by paying a $50 surcharge. Retired companions do not have to pay a fee for removal from my portfolio.
Additional Pages : $20
Fee for additional pages beyond those first 10 already included. Price listed is for each page
Extra Development: $50/hr
Any extra development that goes beyond the default features included within my design service. This fee also applies to advanced template customizations that aren't included with the base fee.
Website Reactivation : $150+
Base fee to reactivate a website that has been taken offline due to retirement, extended hiatus or hosting expiration. Includes three hours of my time to upload site files and reinstall VedaCMS. If hosting the site on my server, an additional $135 will be needed for 1 year of hosting services.
