Web Design and SEO Services
No Design or Re-Design Fee:
We specialize in building custom websites and providing excellent Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. Initial design costs make businesses delay doing needed redesigns of their websites, so we have a program that usually eliminates website design or re-design fees for clients who are on our monthly SEO/Maintenance program. All they pay is the regular monthly SEO/Maintenance service fee. We build all our sites in WordPress or Big Commerce.
The local-area SEO/Maintenance package is typically $399-1499 a month for a site up to 35 pages, depending on the size of the local area. State-focus, regional-focus and national-focus SEO are available at an additional cost. Competitive business categories may require higher monthly fees, because of the need for additional SEO efforts. There is a 12 month minimum on the monthly services following a build or rebuild. A majority of our web clients are so pleased with our services that they continue with us year after year.
New Every Two:

The bulk of time each month is spent on Monitoring and Management. Monitoring includes monitoring keywords (search phrases). Of the dozens of possible keyword combinations, Foremost picks and optimizes for the most popular 12-15 keywords. Foremost includes some text on site that benefits other less-used search phrases, but concentrates on the 12-15 most searched phrases. The results of Monitoring and Management do not always show in visible changes on the front end.
A smaller amount of time each month is typically spent on Maintenance, which includes edits on the front end of the site and installing WordPress and plugin updates. Maintenance includes backups, security, clearing the spam filter, making minor edits for client, giving customer support to the client, working with the host account, etc.
Of the time Foremost spends each month providing this service, most is on Monitoring and Management, plus about 1 hour each month available for Maintenance and performing minor edits such as adding a photo, changing text and adding text supplied by Client.
Available at an additional cost:
- Video Marketing: video email, video newsletters, sign-up forms, live meetings with up to 500 attendees, video chat and more!
- Social Media customization or creation (Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter Pages), plus Social Media links (icons) on the website
- Social Media ad campaigns: (Facebook, LinkedIn, Google AdWords, etc.)
- Review Management promotes positive reviews and referrals and helps avoid negative ones

After the 30-60 day build phase, costs for tasks beyond minor edits of adding a few photos, changing text and adding text supplied by the client are:
|Changing layout or themes, adding features, copywriting||$95 an hour|
|Add an additional page after the build phase||$100 per page|
|Stock photos/images||$10 each typically|
If page count exceeds the 35 page package limit, an additional charge will be quoted.
Payments, Optional Costs, E-Commerce Sites
Eliminating invoicing keeps costs reasonable so a monthly payment is set up on an automatic withdrawal from a bank account, or for a small PayPal fee, automatically charged to a debit or credit card.
