Home page contains Welcome statement, selected images or custom graphic, navigation links, copyright statement if applicable.
Personal Information page (Basic Small Business, Small Business Plus) containing About statements, bios, links and contact information. Two additional pages - up to four pages total. (Entry Level sites incorporate personal information into one inclusive page).
Intuitive navigational links (Listing of up to 20 links).
Basic image editing as necessary: including cropping, resizing, adjusting brightness/contrast, sharpening, optimization of file size to provide the best balance between image quality and download time on an average 56K modem. Digital images should be scanned at no less than 180 dpi. This basic package includes scanning and basic image editing for the four pages included in the package. Please note that sound tracks may slow load times dramatically for dial-up users. Meta tags will be written into the HTML of the main page---meta tags allow search engines to discover your site so that your page can be listed in a search. The client must supply keywords for search, in which MtS will assist the client in developing.
Site will be tested for IE, Firefox, Chrome, Netscape and Safari browser compatibility (minor variations in appearance not negatively affecting appearance may be evident).
Search engine submission with Google: one time submission.
Updates and changes: Two years free site maintenance (text updates only). After the free site maintenance guarantee has expired, the client may either hire MtS to maintain the site on a monthly contract or on a per-job basis. (Note: Client manipulation of HTML paths and links, and image files is not recommended).
Viewing Work in Progress. A prototype version of the client's site will always be viewable from a server on which MtS will be developing the site. Client input is not only encouraged, it is a must!
Domains. MtS can suggest domain providers, but we do not provide domains or register domain names. This is for the client's protection and ease-of-use.
Host Sites All host sites and domain names are the responsibility of the client. In most cases, these services will incur additional costs to the client.
Text Content. When requested, MtS will assist the client in writing text content for the site, but in the end, it is the client who must provide the content. We strongly urge the client to have a basic text content formed beforehand to aid in the layout of the page design.
What if I want to maintain my own site? Mind to Sight does not design user-editable websites. However, we do have maintenance contracts starting at $50.00 a month. Also, remember that every package comes with two years free text content editing.
