Before Using the Website Cost Estimator Tool
The Website Cost Estimator™ doesn’t create the proposal. Rather, it’s a highly-effective tool for having a conversation that will bring you and your client to a mutual understanding of what’s involved in a website development project and what factors determine its cost.
Before using it with a prospective client, we recommend running several simulations through the Estimator process (based on past client projects) to validate that the final prices seem reasonable for what you can charge. We expect that you’ll need to adjust the options and pricing provided so that the final tally reflects the services you provide and is in line with your own price range.
The files and instructions you’ll need are located in the sidebar to the left. There is a Word .doc file that you can make edits to and then save them as a PDF if you’d like to use the paper version of The Website Cost Estimator™. We also have provided a gravity forms xml file to use on your own website with Gravity Forms. We have created both pdf and video instructions showing you how to edit the automated Website Cost Estimator using conditional logic.
If you have Gravity Forms on your website, download the .json file for the Website Cost Estimator in the sidebar to the left and then upload it to Gravity Forms on your site. You will be ready to use it.
If you need to edit it, read the instructions on the following page and watch the video.
