Most Importantly – Quality Content
What sort of website projects do you work on?
We design websites for existing websites, medical websites, and sites for non-profits. We also work with startups and brand challengers.
New websites: Normally involves starting the branding process for logos, colors and overall tone of the content and design of the website.
Website re-skins: This is usually pretty easy and involves updating the UI, CSS, and HTML of an existing interface.
Complete website re-designs: A redesign project can be more difficult, as this can involve stakeholders, analytics and content strategies. As the old saying goes “measure twice, cut once”.

Mobile App Design & Development
How much is a mobile app?
The time and cost of a mobile app depends on the features of the app, programming language and the amount of target devices.
It’s common for a Custom Mobile App that interfaces with the cloud with web services and a database to start at about $30,000. There is additional cost for multiple platforms.
The most cost-effective app we have designed and developed cost $10,000 that allowed sales reps in the field to quickly calculate sizes for their companies service.
How do you estimate the cost of mobile apps?
We can provide you an estimate range based on past projects.
If you want to get an exact time and cost we will need to create a project plan, which we deliver at the end of our Solution Design phase. The Solution Design phase allows us to work with you on your app idea to make it a working solution that is includes the delivery of:
App Screen Designs
Project Plan with time and cost
These deliverables allow us to work with you to make sure your app idea accounts for all of your user and business needs while giving you a fixed fee budget for budget certainty.
Other benefits of Solution Design also allow you to go from an idea to finished design or prototype that you can present to target users, stakeholders or investors (which love to see you have invested in your app idea).
In the end, Solution Design helps you:
You can also use the deliverables in presentations and focus groups based on real user feedback.
Implement changes in the design phase which is much more cost effective than in later development phases. Saving on costly changes, time and cost.
Deliver a more polished product.
Accelerate the timeline of your project allowing you to quickly stat development.
Upon completion of the Solution Design phase all of the deliverables are yours. You can start the development phase immediately with SolutionBuilt, or you can use these assets to get comparable quotes from other developers.
How do you make money with apps?
There are several ways, depending on whether yours is a FREE APP or a PAID APP. Obviously a PAID APP can earn you money with each download. Marketing the APP through App Store Optimization or mobile APP advertising can also drive tons of traffic. If your APP has a substantial number of users, you can even publish ads within your FREE APP as another revenue source.
How long does it take to create an app?
That all depends on what your APP needs to do. It could be as little as a month or as long as a year. It all depends on your projects unique requirements.
Do I have to create a separate app for Android, iPhone, and iPad?
Yes and No. Depending on your programming language native or hybrid, you can have unique code bases for each application or a unified code base that will allow us to “Port” your hybrid application for your target devices.
Because Apple apps are not compatible with Android and vice-versa they use different operating systems and programming languages, have different screen sizes which require additional programming for the apps to render properly on your target devices. We can help you with Porting your APP or creating a new app, right here in-house. No problem.
