You have questions. We have answers. Read on for some helpful hints on how the website redesign thing works.
Q. How much does a website cost?
A: The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a car. Generally, though, our website projects start in the $500 range for individual websites and the $2,000 range for non-profits (depending on the complexity and time requirements).

Q. How long does it take to build a site?
A: Our standard websites take from 30-60 days to create. Our E-commerce (online store) websites take approximately 60-120 days to setup, test and implement. The time will vary from project to project, and could be much less.
Q. How does the payment process work?
A: The project starts with a 50% deposit. After design sign-off and before we move into programming, we collect 25%. Once we have completed and fulfilled our scope and testing is complete, the final 25% is collected and your website is then launched publicly.
Q. What experience do you have?
A: ZindaMedia was founded in 2009 by a church planter working in South Asia. Hence the name, which means living media. We have been working with non-profits (NGOs) and small businesses building great things ever since. Want a reference or two? We will happily connect you with past and/or current clients who can vouch for our integrity and high levels of customer service.
