Let Inventive VisionSM take your vision to reality

Based in Chicago's vibrant South Loop, we help organizations, small-business owners, and individuals create or enhance their online presence. We design, host, and manage cost-effective, distinctive websites designed to promote your business with class and clarity. We optimize our sites and present them to key search engines using legitimate, industry standard techniques. Optionally, we do monthly maintenance and website content updates at a reasonable cost.

Custom web design can be for the cost conscience

On a budget? Not a problem. Our services are very affordable. A single web page with just your logo, services and contact info can go a long way.

Think about it this way:

A single web page can hold more information than a small display ad in a local phone book. In Manhattan, New York, a small, one-inch space listing would cost you about $2,500, and you could pay as much as $92,000 for a full-page display ad. But that same one-inch space listing in Manhattan, Kansas, would cost just $252, and a full-page display ad would be about $11,200.

In either case, whether in New York or Kansas, the price of a basic website looks like a much more cost-effective method of getting your message out to the masses. When was the last time you used a book versus a computer to look for something?

Even a basic three-page website with company overview, services offered, recent projects and contact information can accomodate those on a budget - and project a professional image for you or your business.

Some businesses have bigger websites, but you do not need to go big all at once. You can add more later, as your budget allows.

1) The Basic and Basic+ Plans are for "static" web pages which means they do not change or update automatically. They must be manually maintained. If you plan on selling merchandise where pricing and inventory change, or are a real estate agent with a changing database of properties, contact us for a free consultation to discuss your specific needs.

2)The Pro Sell Plan does not include the payment of 3rd party processing fees (credit cards, etc.) or setup fees or any fees associated with merchant account / 3rd party payment processors - this can usually be obtained through your own business banker at a less costly rate than online bankcard processing services.

Hosting Services

We offer four hosting plans which will meet the needs of almost any website. For most users the Standard package will provide more than enough power for most website designs.

Management / Maintenance Services

Once your website is up and running, occasionally it will need to be updated with new information or even additional pages.

Having us update the site can make more efficienct use of your time, thereby saving you money in the long term.

You get experience, reliabililty and attention to detail, so your website gets done right. And in the end, that is the real bargain.

* Chose any number of hours above 10 hours per month and pay only $40.00 per hour (charged in one-half hour increments). You pick the number of hours you need (we can work with you to "guesstimate" how many you may need), and then use them anytime during the month for maintenance and updates to your site during the normal work week (Monday to Friday, excluding weekends and national holidays).

**For clients not on a maintenance plan, or who have an occasional update, you pay $70 per hour with a 1/2 hour ($35) minimum -- and we'll carry over the unused time for up to one year. Billed on completion.

***If you need new and/or additional pages, you pay $85.00 per hour for creation and integration within your existing site. Average new page requires 1-2 hours of work, but we will provide a written quote for approval before proceeding.


Sleep on it, and when you are ready, set up a time to sign the contract - and begin inventing your vision.
