Future Wave Computer Solutions
Our Fees based on this quote

This chart is provided for companies/partners who wish to resell our web page design/maintenance services.  In addition, some of these fees may be waved if the company/partner in question is assisting in art, or other aspects of the web page design.  Only areas that Future Wave is involved in will be billed.   These fees are an ESTIMATE based on the questionnaire.  Some of these fees need to be calculated.

Initially you need to determine the COMPLEXITY of the web page by adding up the features requested using the respective value for each.  Finally, a table will be provided showing Future Wave's cost per page.  This cost will also be reduced for a substantial amount of pages.  There are some fees which are based on the media itself.  For example: if a MPEG or REAL VIDEO video needs to be generated for the customer this is billed on a per minute length of the video.

Once, the web client has specified what they want Future Wave will research the options available to best meet this client's needs.

INITIAL FEES:
Researching best options: $20    (this fee covers the quote and the time to research options)

FINAL FEES:
When the web page is complete Future Wave will back the web page up to CD-ROM formatted in ISO9660 format for compatibility with MAC and PC reading.  This is a contingency plan to insure the web page is available if anything should happen to the host.  The CD-ROM will be provided to the company/partner working with Future Wave.  Future Wave will also have a backup on a master backup CD that may contain more than one client's web page.
BACKUP FEE: $10

Now, here is the table to calculate the complexity:

COMPONENT

COST

COMPONENT

COST
Pictures 0 Thumbnails 1
MIDI Music 0 Email Forms 2
Rollover Effects 2 Multi-Browser Pages 6
Frames 0 Non-Frames 1
Custom Art 8 Custom MIDI Music 10
Shockwave Flash 10 JAVASCRIPT 5
JAVA 8 Custom CGI Programming 10
Shopping Cart 10 Guest Book 1

Information Forum (BBS) 1 MPEG Videos 1
REAL AUDIO & REAL VIDEO 1 Streaming Data 4
Custom Photo, scanning, digital camera 2 ACTIVEX ASP Pages 10
Own Domain Name 0    
       
       

Using the questionnaire add all the checked boxes together to get the COMPLEXITY.  This should be a number from 0 to 97.  My base rate is $30/page but, depending on the complexity this may increase it will always be very competitive.

The following table is used to determine Future Wave Computer Solutions' cost per page.  The numbers across the top are the actual number of pages estimated for the web site being quoted.  The number down the side is the complexity as computed using the above table.

COMP 1-5 6-10 11-15 16-20 21-30 31-40 41-50 51-60 61-70 71+

81-97 $75 $70 $67 $65 $63 $61 $60 $59 $58 $57

STARTUP COSTS:
Making web pages is time consuming if done correctly and the bills do not stop coming in therefore, 33% of the estimate for web page design is due at the beginning of the page design process.  The remaining amount of the fee will be due on completion of the site.  This 33% is non-refundable unless no pages are generated and no work is done towards that stated in the contract.  Each web page startup fee will be provided at the time a contract between Future Wave and the company/partner is signed and notarized to protect the interests of Future Wave and his company/partner.  The contract will be fair and will protect both parties.   It is recommended that the company/partner pass on the 33% or something similar to their clients.

GIVEN:
Each site will be submitted to Lycos, Excite, Yahoo, Google, Altavista, Ask Jeves, SNAP, Web Crawler, Northern Light, HotBot, Infoseek, Looksmart, and MSN Search.   Other sites may be submitted to as well but, studies have determined these are the most effective sites to submit to.

MCOMPLEXITY is a number we will use to determine the cost of a maintenance/update plan.  MCOMPLEXITY is COMPLEXITY multiplied by the sum of the costs on the following table.

OPTION

COST

OPTION

COST
Check search engines & resubmit 1 Research content to increase traffic 1
Change small amount of text 0 Change other content 1
Change medium amount of text 1 Create or change videos 1
Change large amount of text 2 CHANGE ENTIRE WEB SITE 8
Change some pictures 1 Detailed report of traffic and effectiveness 1

NOTE: If CHANGE ENTIRE WEBSITE is checked do not add any of the numbers together just use the COST of that item.

(EXAMPLE: If you had a complexity of 41 and Change Medium Text, Check Search Engines, and Change some pictures was checked would mean 3 multiplied by 41 or 123 so, the MCOMPLEXITY is 123)

MCOMPLEXITY should be between 0 and 776.

The following table can be used to determine the maintenance cost PER PAGE.  The columns across the top represent the FREQUENCY of the updates.  The numbers down the side are the MCOMPLEXITY.
