Terms of Service
Read the Terms of Service – you’ll need to check that you agree to them. They are short and easy to understand. You’ll find them by scrolling down this page until you find the section “Terms of Service.”
Pay for Website Design
After you’ve read the Terms of Service, continue to scroll down to the Order Form at the bottom of this page. Complete the form and make your payment. The website design portion of your payment is a one-time fee. The website support portion of your payment is a yearly fee.
Pay for Support Package
The website design and website support payments are both made with the order form below. Once you’ve made your payments, you will be directed to schedule your consultation with Ken.
After bundled payment is made, you’ll be directed to schedule your initial consultation with Ken. During this consultation, Ken will fully explain our process, answer your questions, and guide you through the project survey that will be given to our designers to complete your initial customization. This is an important meeting, and is required before moving forward with your project.
Choose Your Theme
After you’ve scheduled your consultation with Ken, you’ll be directed to look through our Demo Gallery of WordPress themes. Take some time to look through these themes before Ken calls you for your scheduled consultation.

Terms of Service
We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals; however, sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so we both know what is what, who should do what, and what happens if something goes wrong. In this contract you will not find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing an agreement you might later regret. We do want what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.
You are hiring Ken Collins Marketing, to design and develop a website for the estimated total price of $400 (or other promotional pricing) as outlined in our previous correspondence. Of course it’s a little more complicated, but we’ll get to that.

- Up to 15 initial website pages added (we do not write or provide content)
- Customization of color to match your logo or brand
- Addition of provided logo
- Other website customization within the allowed parameters of the theme

What do both parties agree to do?
As our customer, you have the power, and ability, to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization.
You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images, and other information as needed, when needed, and in the format we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign-off approval in a timely manner. Deadlines work two ways, so we both will be bound by any dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need, and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way we will endeavor to meet all deadlines; however, we are not responsible for a missed launch date or deadline if you have been late in supplying information, required materials, or you have not approved or signed off our work in a timely manner. In addition, we will also maintain the confidentiality of any information you provide us.
We will use the theme you choose from our Demo Gallery. We will provide the above-mentioned customizations on the design but will not edit the wireframe structure of the theme chosen.
WordPress/CSS/HTML layout programming
We will develop your website using CSS/HTML in the WordPress open source software for your website’s styling. We will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major browsers including those made by Apple, Microsoft, and Mozilla.
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5, and 6 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Opera unless otherwise specified. If you need to show the same or similar visual design to visitors using these older browsers, we will charge you at the hourly rate of $150 per hour for any necessary additional code and its testing.
Text Content & Photographs
Web Copy and photographs are not included and are required by you to provide in a timely fashion.
You will supply photographs in the highest-resolution digital format available to you. If you choose to buy stock photographs we can suggest vendors of stock photography. If we spend time searching for appropriate photographs, you will be charged at the hourly rate of $150 per hour.
Videos & Image Portfolios
Videos and Images are not included but we are happy to add, and recommend you add, them to your website. Videos will need to be uploaded by you to a video host service (such as YouTube) for us to use. Images will need to be sent to us. If there are large quantities of images we request you send them in a zip file.
Website Changes and Revisions
We know from experience that charge-by-the-hour contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your first idea about how something should look, or how it might work – and more importantly, your budget. We do not want to limit either your options or your opportunities to change your mind.
You will be charged the yearly flat rate of $600 each year. Along the way, we will ask you to put requests in writing in order that we will be able to keep track of changes.
Our Monthly Website Changes and Support Includes the following:
- Revisions, Additions, or Deletions of text content or images on existing pages and or post (you provide text and images)
- Revisions of colors changes
- Revisions of removing or adding new logos
- Changing site domain or pointing alter domains at the website
- Assistance in adding up to 5 blog posts per month (you write them)
- Assistance in technical issues within the WordPress platform
- Assistance in WordPress and theme updates
- Support is provided within a 7 working-day window. For quicker support issues please contact us by email, state your need, and we will do what we can to accommodate within reason.
- This does not include revisions to the website layout and design. We hold the right to determine what revisions will hold an extra charge on top of the monthly fee agreed upon. We will alert you to any such need for extra charges so that you may make the final decision to proceed.
Website Hosting and Technical Support
You may already have professional website hosting; you might even manage hosting in-house; if that is the case we are unable to manage and support your hosting. If you do not manage your own website hosting, we can set up an account for you with our preferred hosting. This will be included in the monthly hosting and support cost mentioned above.
We are not able to guarantee the functions contained in any web page templates, or in a completed website, will always be error-free, and therefore you agree we will not be held liable to you, or any third party, for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential, or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this website and any other web pages, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.
If any provision of this agreement is determined to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
You guarantee to us any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork you provide us for inclusion in the website are either owned by you, or you have permission to use them.
When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the graphics and other visual elements we create for you for this project. We will give you a copy of all files and you should store them securely and safely as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files we used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business for you to pay the invoices we send you in a prompt and timely manner. We are also sure you will want to stay friends, and you therefore agree to stick tight to the following payment schedule.
- $400 payment will be due before we begin any work
- $600 yearly Support will be due before we begin any work
- Once design payment is complete, payment is non-refundable
- Once website is launched live, support payment is non-refundable
To keep your cost low we do not include any in-person meetings with our development team. Ken will be happy to meet with you on request for a reasonable number of meetings and for a reasonable amount of time. Any time, deemed by Ken, to exceed that will be billed at his $150 per hour fee.
But where is all the horrible small print?
Although the language is simple, the intentions of this document are serious. Just like a parking ticket, you cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it shall remain in place.
REMINDER: Once you complete this form and make your payment, you’ll be directed to Schedule your Consultation with Ken.
