WordPress Website Design, Maintenance & Local SEO Services

Our Website Design Rates . . .

Clerical Plus utilizes a simple and affordable website design and our implementation fees are as below. 

When reviewing our fees, keep in mind that as of the fall of 2019, the average price of a professionally built website in Central New Jersey was well over $1000. You should also know we have not changed our website design and implementation package fees for over 9 years, and we have only raised our hourly rates once over the past 12+ years.  Clerical Plus is very affordable!

Unlike most other website developers/builders/designers, we list all of our rates upfront and are we are totally transparent.  You will know what we charge just by reading the chart below . . . no contact form/meeting to learn what you will pay for your website. Clerical Plus’s hourly and website implementation rates are typically 1/2 what others charge, with a multitude of free services included. We work by verbal or email agreement . . . no written contracts to sign . . . typically no money up front (I only ask for money up front if I really do not know you/you are not a referral) . . . and no $1000s retainer fee up for our maintenance and/or Local SEO services (you should know that also very rare, especially for SEO service, as most SEO providers ask for $1000s up front).  With any website implementation, if at any time you are not 101% happy or satisfied with our service or rates, you can walk away, no questions asked.  As for the Clerical Plus monthly maintenance and SEO service . . . we service monthly and bill quarterly, and again no contracts, you can walk away at any time, no questions asked. You should know up front, Clerical Plus has NEVER lost a client due to our service or rates!
