Attribution and licenses explained.

When you do a Google Images search, the resulting photos are not necessarily ones that you’re free to immediately use. In most cases, the photos are still covered by photographers’ copyrights.

If you’re looking for photos to use for a design and want to keep yourself out of copyright trouble, you need to locate websites that explicitly define the copyright license of each image. For all the sites listed above, the license is generally pretty easy to find. There’s typically a description of the license on every page or at least a link to a description. Here are two license types you’re likely to find on these sites:

Creative Commons zero means that you can use the photos  in any way you’d like, without asking permission.

Creative Commons with attribution means that you can use the photo in any way you want, as long as you credit the creator of the photo.

Attribution is simple: If you include a photo on one of a web page, add text that cites the photographer (“Photo by John Smith”) and be sure to include a link to his or her site, if there’s one.

Be sure to check each website’s license page for specific details.

How much does it really cost to have a website?

The cost of a website can vary dramatically based on the specific components included. As you can probably guess, a website with basic functionality is going to cost much less, both initially and over time, than a site that acts as an online store or integrates with a company database or piece of software.

This section will attempt to break down some common website components, and how much you should expect to pay for them. Some of the components have initial investments, while others are ongoing. We frequently update this page, so you can ensure that the amounts listed below are current for 2015.

DOMAIN NAME

Your website’s domain name is the unique name that appears in the URL for your website. It’s kind of like your online fingerprint. It is specific to you. Although other websites may have domain names similar to it, your domain name is yours alone. However, to get the rights to your domain name, you have to register it annually.

Your domain name is important because it creates an online identity for your website. Having a domain name establishes credibility with site visitors and potential customers. It is also important because if you even change your Web host your domain name will go with you. Lastly, your domain name is important because it expands your opportunities for online advertising, which has become more necessary for attracting traffic to today’s website.

Cost: $5 to $15 per year

WEBSITE HOSTING

Hosting is simply the service that allows your website to be accessed by other internet users. A web host will provide space on its server for your website, allowing people around the world to view it.

Hosting is important because the quality of host your website relies on can affect page loading time, the tech support you receive if your site crashes, and the ability of your website to expand in the future. To put it simply, your hosting provider has a huge impact on how your website functions. Although free hosting services exist, their tech support (if they supply any at all) will not be as good as paid hosting services.

Cost: $75 to $200 a year (depending on traffic and hosting features)

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS)

A CMS is something that will allow you or your employees to edit information on the website without having to edit any of the code or mess with any of the files we put in place for you. It makes it extremely easy for you to adjust the little things here and there just in case you need to add something later on or if you want full control of what is shown on your website.

A CMS like Magento may be free, while others may have monthly or yearly licensing fees or usage charges associated with them. What you choose depends on what specific functionality you need your website to have.

Cost: $0 to $15,000+ per year (depending on the platform chosen)

ECOMMERCE FUNCTIONALITY

Ecommerce is another moving part for websites that might require a major portion of overall design and development to make it functional. The addition of ecommerce functionality requires extensive testing of shopping carts, payment options, and shipping systems, as well as time spent setting up products and ensuring their individual pages display correctly to shoppers.

Typically, there is no extra cost to add ecommerce functionality. The expense comes from the amount of time it takes to ensure every component is working, the acquisition of a payment gateway, and any additional effort you may require to integrate your store with shipping or tracking systems hosted elsewhere.

Cost: $500 to $5,000 (initial investment)

WEBSITE DESIGN OR THEME CREATION

Design can go from a zero budget all the way to world class quality. It all depends what you want. Obviously, a zero budget style of design will not look as good, but a world class design will certainly be eye catching and perhaps even award winning. It all depends what you would like your website to look like, and the desires of your target audience.

For some CMS, like WordPress, creating a website design is as simple as creating a theme or “skin” to apply to your site. This may cost far less than a created-from-scratch design for another CMS, but it may also look less unique and lack some functionality.

Cost: $250 to $20,000+ (initial investment)

COPYWRITING

This also goes back to the number of pages your website has. The more pages it will have, the more copywriting it will need.

Copywriting ties into search engine optimization (SEO): the content on your website is what needs to contain the keywords relevant to your products or services, because if it doesn’t, your site won’t be found in search for those terms. It takes a trained writer with knowledge of SEO to create copy that contains the right keywords and compels your visitors to take action.

Cost: $50 to $500 per page or article

SEO

To attract the most visitors as possible, your website fully optimized for search engines. Search engine optimization services can range from very inexpensive to thousands of dollars per month, depending on how much work you want your agency to put into the ranking and visibility of your new site.

SEO services typically include multiple ongoing actions and tactics. For example, WebpageFX’s SEO packages include optimization of website copy, keyword research, targeted outreach and link building, content creation, and so on.

Cost: $300 to $1,500 per month

FLASH OR MULTIMEDIA DESIGN

Whether you desire to have a flashy and eye-catching demo for your website or you just want an interesting header, multimedia design is what you need.

Interactive website design can be very inexpensive, or it can be extremely costly, depending on the functionality of what is being developed. For example, a simple flash animation may only cost a few hundred dollars, if that, while the creation of an interactive on-site application or tool to visualize colors, patterns, clothing, etc. could cost tens of thousands of dollars to create from scratch.

Cost: $250 to $10,000+ (depending on level of interactivity required)

DATABASE INTEGRATION

Websites that have database integration tend to have a lot more things that can go wrong. Database integration can lead to some really cool additions to your website, but a portion of your cost depends on how much development is necessary, and how much time it will take to fully implement and test the integration.

Cost: $5,000 to $25,000 per integration

ONGOING WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

Website maintenance is the entire process involved in updating and managing a website once it is online. This includes ensuring that your website’s hardware and software are working well and that your site is up to date with the latest products and features.

Site maintenance is important because it affects how interested your visitors are in your site, it allows you to maintain, or possibly improve, your search engine rankings and it essentially keeps your website functioning. You need to be willing to spend the money to maintain your website after it launches, or else your site will likely fall into disarray, let alone have any chance of ranking on search engine results pages.

Cost: $500 to $1250 a year (depending on number of updates required)

 

Does the Cost of a Website Vary by Its Type?

To completely answer the question “how much should a web site cost,” it’s also useful to review specific website types. The cost of a new site absolutely varies by its type! For example, you should expect to pay more for a site with ecommerce functionality than a site without. This is because more time and effort will need to be spent populating product pages, adding images, testing the shopping cart, and so on.

Here are some estimates for specific kinds of websites and how much you should expect to pay for them.

INFORMATIONAL OR SMALL BUSINESS WEBSITE COST

  • 8 to 16 web pages
  • Custom graphics
  • Stock photos
  • Little or no Flash design
  • Web forms sending to email accounts

Project duration: 30 to 75 days

Cost range: $2,000 to $6,000

CORPORATE WEBSITE COST

  • 25 to 75 Web pages
  • Heavy use of flash
  • High quality design work on all Web pages
  • Content management system
  • Extra components: Intranet, calendars, web site search

Project duration: 60 to 90 days

Cost range: $10,000 to $25,000

ECOMMERCE WEBSITE COST

  • 100 to 1000 products
  • Shopping cart
  • Payment gateway integration
  • Product descriptions and images
  • Sales tax and shipping calculation
  • Customer and administrative control panel

Project duration: 60 to 120 days

Cost range: $5,000 to $15,000

DATABASE DRIVEN WEBSITE OR WEB APPLICATION

  • Dynamic Web pages 20 to 2,000
  • Administrative control panel for web site management
  • Advanced programming skill sets required
  • Interactivity with web site visitor
  • Enterprise database (MS SQL Server or MySQL)

Project duration: 90 to 180 days

Cost range: $6,000 to $35,000

So How Much Should a Website Cost? Here Are Our Findings

In conclusion, the cost of a web site can vary greatly depending upon the site’s features, its needed Internet marketing services, aesthetic qualities, and the company that is creating the Web design. While the cost of a basic website has dropped, the need for more interactivity has helped hold steady the price of a high-end, competitive design.

As of 2015, you should expect to pay between $2,250 and $10,000 for a fully functional small business website. This price may be lower if your site has very few pages and minimal functionality, or higher if you require custom development, extensive design, or interactive elements and advanced integration.

The price of a website will continue to change as time goes on and new technologies and features are developed and become popular. Because of this, it may be wise to invest in a website maintenance plan so that you do not have to pay for a new site again in a few years.

Planning for Your New Website

When determining the budget for your website design or redesign project, it is important to take the costs into consideration. However, the costs of your website project are not the only factors influencing the profit that you are able to make from your site. As mobile internet usage continues to surge, designing for mobile users is imperative. Investing money in creating a responsive Web design may allow you to make future conversions and profits that outweigh the initial cost of redesigning you site.

Planning ahead and finding the exact cost of your new web site design or redesign in 2015 will keep your project on track. Timelines, features, and custom design factors will all vary greatly based on the price your website requirements. We think that the charts above will prove very useful in getting a grasp on what your final website cost will be.

10 tips for self development

Personality development is a term which is often misunderstood to be self development and or just limited to enhancing one’s own looks. So it becomes necessary to get a clear picture on what is personality development and what is self development.

Personality development is something which is considered as improving the way we think, feel, behave and carry ourselves. In other words, it is not confined to the improvement of a single aspect of an individual; rather it is about improving an entity or a cluster of qualities which helps in achieving and presenting oneself in a better way. Well, if you are wondering how to improve your personality, here are a few tips which could help you improve your personality.

 

Positive approach and confidence:

Positive approach and confidence are two different terms but are interrelated in many sorts. A positive approach will make one believe in them and this self belief will help a lot in achieving a difficult task. Being positive in whatever you do will skyrocket your confidence level and helps in finding better solutions even in worst case scenarios. Confidence in turn will help in making the best use of your own abilities.

Listen with intent:

Listening with intent results in a better understanding of the core point of what you listen to. Being a better listener makes the person whom you listen to feel like they are important to you and in return they will begin to value you more.

Be good in learning:

Always have a curiosity to learn new things. Learning will keep you updated in a challenging working environment and open minded towards accepting new happenings. At the same time, learning is not confined only to getting to know about something which you are not familiar about; rather it also includes learning from the mistakes of others and your own.

Body Language (Eye contact, Body Posture, Hand shake):

Body language is the way through which you exhibit your inner personality to others. A positive body language can work out wonders in impressing others. Well, to maintain a perfect body language make sure you connect with the eyes of the person whom you are conversing to. It reflects your honesty and boldness.

Maintain an erect body posture which reflects your energy level, but at the same time don’t be very robotic in moves. Avoid shaking legs and hands or playing with your pen. It indicates your disinterest. And finally, don’t forget to give a firm handshake when you greet someone and while signing off.

Be yourself:

The best thing you can do to yourself is just being yourself. Though inspirations are good, trying to turn yourself into a person whom you admire will have negative effects on you. So, try not to be like someone else as each and every individual is unique. It is this originality which can help in creating a branding for you.

Dress up well:

Dressing up well is one of the most looked-into aspects in a corporate work culture. In order to carry yourself in a confident manner, the way you dress up yourself is important. Try to maintain a decent and professional look in your dressing by avoiding striking colors. Make sure your dress is neatly pressed and most importantly wear laced shoes. Though proper dressing alone will not improve your personality, it has a considerable amount of impact on it.

Manners:

Manners are the rating scales through which people rate you as a well behaved and a respectful human being. Treat your team mates respectfully and politely. Help your colleagues in their work if possible which will earn you their respect off-stage. Cooperativeness and being considerate in manner are the qualities that help you in emerging as a Great leader in the future.

Be encouraging:

In general, we all seek for encouragement of some kind or the other while getting a work done. Despite of all our hard efforts, interest and thirst to prove, it is the encouragement which acts as an off-stage positive catalyst in reaching the goal. Your encouraging quality will help others identify you as a better team player. So, try to be motivating and encourage others and for sure you’ll get plenty of them in return.

Being social:

Socialize with your colleagues as it will help in creating an environment in which you can work comfortably in. Nobody would love a sober or an expressionless person. Having fun at work with your colleagues is no harm as it will be a rejuvenating timeout which will pedal up work to a more brisk pace. Socializing with people will help in understanding individuals and turns you adaptable towards any group.

Indulge in conversations:

General conversations will teach a lot as it usually involves topics unrelated to your work. Such conversations are the gateways for knowledge exchanges. Nobody knows about everything and so indulge in conversations and get to know more on what you know the least or on what is totally new to you. It is also important to share your own thoughts and opinions but try not to be too preachy as it would bore the other involved in the conversation.

Amazon 3D phone and “Prime” data service for June 18th

Eyebrows are raising all over the Web. Amazon, which has been rumored to be working on a 3D smartphone for months, could officially debut a new handset in just a few weeks. The company is hosting a device unveiling event on June 18 in Seattle, and anyone can request an invitation right from Amazon.

 

 Amazon is teasing the product in a new video, which shows a handful of beta testers reacting enthusiastically to an off-screen device. Some of the users can be seen swaying side-to-side while using the gadget, giving weight to the rumor that Amazon’s smartphone will  sport advanced eye-tracking technology that creates glasses-free 3D images via four cameras. Using this tech, users may be able to see everything from wallpapers to street maps in 3D, with each application changing based on the viewer’s perspective.

More: Amazon Smartphone Rumors

Those same sensors will reportedly allow for tilt gestures, which will enable users to navigate between apps and menus by simply moving the phone in different directions.

Glasses-free 3D has never been done on a smartphone, and Amazon needs to make sure the feature doesn’t overly strain the eyes of people who will be staring at their handset all day. The company is expected to launch two different models of its phone, so it’s possible we’ll see a non-3D variation. We’re curious if Amazon will include an off switch for 3D as Nintendo did with the 3DS.

Amazon’s upcoming device unveiling is different than most major smartphone reveals, as those events are typically announced via private invites within the industry and media. CEO Jeff Bezos must be feeling extra confident in what his company has in store, as the registration website welcomes customers, developers and journalists to fill out a form in hopes of being selected for the June 18 announcement.

Copy and content writing

Creators frequently disregard to concentrate on both elegantly composed duplicate and organizing an outline so it highlights the duplicate on the page. Today we’ll examine why copywriting is so vital, who needs to learn it, and how to make content-driven plans.

Great Design, Bad Copy

As fashioners, we legitimately invest our energy concentrated on feel. We are pixel pushers who solidly accept with the most grounded conviction that appealing sites are on a very basic level better sites.

We assemble our mockups with “lorem ipsum” so we can about-face and compose something better when we have room schedule-wise. Due dates approach and still we put off the content until the latest moment possible. At last, as our different GTD applications advise us that the time has come to present the fine art, we hash out some fast content to toss onto our delightful manifestations and send them off, without a visual imperfection yet still defaced by the not very impressive duplicate that shows up on each page.

For a significant number of us, this is essentially how we’re modified. We’re visual monsters that flourish with great plan. The issue obviously is that the disregard of strong duplicate will regularly bring about the completed item to endure to such an extent or more than a poor outline. Unless originators are your objective market, your client base will be populated to a great extent by people that don’t talk outline. Indicate them Dribbble.com and they’ll ponder resoundingly why anybody could ever make such an administration.

Without a doubt, they can regularly translate what is revolting and what isn’t comparatively to how we can, yet just on a natural level. What they truly notice is the means by which the site feels. Whether it’s smooth or cumbersome, simple to explore or inconceivable. This is what is implied when fashioners say that awesome plan is straightforward. On the off chance that your clients see your interface excessively, it’s likely on the grounds that they despise it.

This same similitude of straightforwardness applies to copywriting on the web. It’s significant that the normal client is in certainty prepared in perusing and composing much more than configuration, however still just as much as a standard training supplies. To these clients, we’ll call them “ordinary individuals” instead of we visual monstrosities, perusing the web is a perusing background. Assessing an administration includes skimming the attempt to close the deal and perusing the rundown of components to such an extent or more than assessing the visual format of the components on the page. They’ll even contract a planner construct as much in light of what he says in regards to himself as what shows up in his portfolio. In the event that you have solid duplicate, they won’t see or assess it excessively, they’ll be awfully caught up with being persuaded of what it’s idiom.

Heads or Tails?

The point that I’m driving at here is that plan and copywriting are two sides of a similar coin; indivisible inside and out. The client doesn’t see the outline and the content, he sees a site. A solitary incorporated thing that is either attractive or not.

The trap then is to hurl out “lorem ipsum” for however much of the plan procedure as could be expected. Quit outlining with no idea of the objective of the plan. To participate in outline without duplicate is to assemble a crate before you comprehend what will be put inside. To put it in an unexpected way, consider the accompanying quote from Jeffrey Zeldman:

“Content goes before plan. Outline without substance is not configuration, it’s design.”

This is decisively my point. Unless you’re outlining only for plan and not taking part in some expert wander, the plan ought to serve to strengthen the message, not the a different way.

As an analysis, have a go at building your next venture by first putting in all the substance that ought to be on the page. Toss in the features, the duplicate, the elements, the gadgets, the route; all that you can consider, however do as such without outline. The initial step is only to put everything in one place. Once you have it there, then start to style it. Consider distinctive ways you can orchestrate it, shading it, and breath life into it.

This will prompt to plan that is both more successful and more unique. It will be more compelling on the grounds that the whole page is organized to highlight and impart your essential message. Clearly, to try and start this plan procedure, you’re compelled to concentrate totally on organizing your correspondence. Utilize a straightforward content manager with the goal that you’re not occupied by how the message looks. Rather focus just to how it peruses.

Consider most importantly else your intended interest group. Who are you trying to speak to with this message? What do they as of now have around there and why ins’t it sufficient? Also, obviously the most imperative question of all: Why wouldn’t they need to utilize the site, purchase the item, procure the individual, and so forth.? We’ll examine this question more in a later article so for the present simply realize that this question is the way to awesome promoting.

At long last, the technique specified above will prompt to more unique outline since you’re not planning by utilizing different locales you’ve seen as a beginning stage. As opposed to wireframing another person’s outline with your own jacket of paint you’re rather understanding a bewilder. The baffle is obviously how to best organize and style the substance that is now on the page. The convention technique includes sticking substance into a predefined space just like the situation when you buy a pre-constructed outline layout. The better course is to tailor and develop the space to suit prior substance.

Concentrating On Content Whether You’re Writing it or Not

A typical question that emerges out of this question is regardless of whether it’s your occupation as a fashioner to compose great duplicate. A definitive answer sounds like a copout however is totally exact in certifiable settings: it depends. Be that as it may, regardless of what the response to this question is for you actually, your occupation is still to concentrate on the substance.

There are situations where originators require never think about composing as a solitary word themselves. These settings exist for the most part in customary physical plan workplaces that contain both an outline division and a copywriting office. I’ve by and by observed this setup in a large portion of the huge promoting organizations that I’ve worked with and additionally print-based organizations, for example, magazine design offices.

In this last circumstance, magazines utilize innumerable journalists and could never anticipate that their architects will be skilled in sesquipedalian locution. In any case, the method of operation in these organizations is frequently precisely that which I proposed for the website composition explore. Magazine creators are every day given new substance to work with and “lovely up.” The magazine as of now has a created style, however this can and varies radically from page to page and every issue introduces new difficulties for both inventiveness and spatial necessities. Subsequently, despite the fact that they’re not authors, magazine architects frequently exceed expectations at making content-driven plans.

The other normal situation is the predicament of the specialist. For this situation, you’re an exclusive/lady appear. There’s no copywriting office or senior proofreader working in conjunction with a plan group, just you. In these conditions, it turns out to be totally fundamental for you to sharpen your copywriting aptitudes. Regardless of whether you believe it’s reasonable for customers to expect this of you, truly they will.

I apologize for the cruelty, yet in the event that you can use Photoshop superior to Deke McClelland yet can’t compose an awesome feature to spare your life, you’re a terrible specialist. It’s an ideal opportunity to drop the reasons and figure out how to compose extraordinary duplicate. Transform your shortcoming into one of your strongpoints. Make it your upper hand, something you can tell potential customers that they won’t discover in less expensive architects doling out templated outlines from the opposite side of the planet.

Leave a remark beneath and let us recognize what you thought about the article and regardless of whether copywriting is a primary capacity of your plan procedure.
