Building a brand new website can present some challenges. You may either not have enough time to build one or you lack the experience to code and design it how you like. You know what you’re looking for but web design just isn’t a skill you’re proficient at (or want to be) and that’s ok. That’s where our expert web designers come in. PhotoBiz’s award-winning Pro Services team are experts who eat, sleep, and live design.
Are you looking to quickly get a website that showcases your work on one of our templates? Or are you interested in getting a fully customized site, down to the exact details you want? PhotoBiz’s two design services — Jumpstart and Custom Site — may be a perfect choice for you.
But which one is right for you? We are going to break down what each service gives you, the cost, and we even put together a comparison chart to help you learn which service may be the best for your brand.
Jumpstart - $350
PhotoBiz’s Website Jumpstart is one of the most popular Pro Services we offer. It helps people get set up and launched in no time. If you’re too busy to do it yourself, Jumpstart is a perfect solution.
You sign up, fill out a questionnaire, and send us your content. Based on the information you share, our team loads your content into your favorite PhotoBiz template, adds some personalization to the template you selected, and makes sure your site is consistent and set up properly so you don’t have to sweat the details of how to do it.
It’s that simple. It is a streamlined process to get your site launched fast. And we mean fast, as long as you have all the content (your photos and the words you want on the pages) our team gets it put together as quickly as possible. Jumpstart is designed to help you launch as fast as possible, but it requires you to be ready with your content. How fast our team can move depends on how quickly you provide content and feedback.
Jumpstart also helps curb launch anxiety. If you are under pressure to get a website up or not really interested in doing it yourself, Jumpstart is an excellent starting point. You get an expert in your corner making sure you look your best online right away and it doesn’t cost a lot.
NOTE: Jumpstart is a 30-day service. How quickly the service goes depends on when we receive your content, images, and feedback.
Once the site is launched, you then have complete access to the back end of your site to add extra content, such as blogs and marketing campaigns. You get full access to edit your site (and all the tools that come with it), without having to do any of the upfront heavy lifting, which is huge stress relief. Once the Pro Services team is done their work and you are ready to log in, you have the PhotoBiz Assistant and our Passionate Support team to help you navigate your control panel.
A Jumpstart is not just great for new customers, it is also a great way for existing customers who want to refresh their site!
Our award-winning Custom Site service will take your website and brand to the next level. Custom designed websites are great for new clients getting started, as well as for businesses who are already clients and are looking to elevate their current website with some fresh and modern design elements created by our professional designers. Having a custom design is the next step as your brand grows.
The service starts with a questionnaire that helps our in-house expert designers learn about your business and your goals. They look over the details of your responses, including your desired colors, fonts, and the sites you share for inspiration so they know exactly what you’re looking for. We start with a PhotoBiz template as a base (this determines where the menu and the logo are placed) and then we customize it so it looks uniquely yours.
This includes tailoring the design to your liking, using colors, textures, and other flairs to really make your site stand out.
Both of these services are great options. We hope the chart below will help you better understand how they compare. Which is best for your business, is up to you.
