FY14 Web Group Fee Schedule
NOTICE: FEES CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEWPlease note that the listed fees below are currently under review as we undergo restructuring do to budgetary constraints in this fiscal year. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
For FY14, the Web Group has three primary fee-based services:
This fee schedules below outline the costs for each service. The fees cover a portion of the staff time necessary to complete the service-related tasks; however, the school fully subsidizes the underlying systems and staff dedicated to creating and maintaining those systems.
Website Building Service
The Web Group’s site building activities are divided between official YSM organizations and faculty lab websites. To help ease the transition of lab websites into the school’s web systems, YSM will continue to fully subsidize lab websites (up to 20 pages per site) in FY14. The fee schedule is as follows:
Official YSM Organizations
|Project Size||Page Range||Minimum Threshold1||Project Fee|
|Small||10-20 pages||15 pages||$3,000/site|
|Medium||21-50 pages||38 pages||$6,000/site|
|Large||51-100 pages||76 pages||$12,000/site|
1 Each flat project fee is calculated based on the number of paid-pages (minimum threshold) in the project size category (i.e. 15 pages for a small project for a $3,000 fee). All pages above the minimum threshold are considered “free”. (i.e. pages 16-20 in a small project or pages 29-50 in a medium project). If a project’s size is expected to grow into the next tier (i.e. Small grows to Medium), the Web Project Manager will communicate in advance.
2 For projects that fall outside of the Small, Medium and Large new or substantially revamped project parameters, clients can pay for ad-hoc page building service. The Ad-Hoc project category is intended for groups that need to add less than 15 pages to their existing website.
Website Editing Service
For FY14, the Web Group has reorganized the website editing plans into three new categories:
The “Review” category is for those clients who have purchased the Web Group’s Website Review Service to enhance their website’s usability by rearranging content and using the most appropriate web templates. The other two plans are content editing plans: The “Basic” plan (previously called the “Quarterly” plan) is for those clients who need 30-60 page edits per year and the “Frequent” plan (previously called the “Monthly” plan) is for those clients who need 75-150 page edits per year.
|Plan Size||Page Range||Minimum Threshold1||Plan Fee|
|Basic||Up to 60 pages||30 pages||$2,000/year|
|Frequent||Up to 150 pages||75 pages||$5,000/year|
1 If the minimum threshold is not met for the plan, the Plan Fee will be discounted for each page below the minimum threshold.
2 The Ad-Hoc plan is intended for those clients who only needs very occasional edits and whose total edits will be less than 30 page-edits per year.
Website Review Service
A new service for FY14, the Website Review service is for those clients who need a professional review of their website’s organization and usability. The Web Group will provide a report with recommendations, which the client can then make themselves or hire the Web Group to implement.
|Plan Size||Page Range||Minimum Threshold1||Project Fees|
|Review - Basic||Unlimited||15 pages||$300|
|Review - Premium (w/ Google Analytics)||Unlimited||15 pages||$500|
|Implementation - Small||10-20 pages||15 pages||$1,000|
|Implementation - Medium||21-50 pages||38 pages||$3,000|
|Implementation - Large||51-100 pages||76 pages||$5,000|
The initial review is priced at $300. This covers the cost of a comprehensive review of a site and a final report.
The report will include a section-by-section (and where warranted, page-by-page) review of issues found as well as recommendations to both rectify the issues that were identified as well as general improvements to the page/section.
Where warranted, it will also include an overall summary of ideas to enhance the entire site as well as proposing any major cleanup and reorganization of the content components and structure groups/pages in Tridion in order to facilitate the ongoing maintenance of the revised site.
The Premium Review, priced at $500, includes all of the same things as the Basic Review but also contains a section on Google Analytics. All YSM web sites are tracked through Google Analytics which may contain valuable information regarding the overall usage of the site such as visitor traffic and trends of time. Delving deeper, we can investigate specific details such as most visited pages and highest ranking keywords.
Opting for the Premium Review will necessitate a brief intake to learn more about what it is the organization thinks is important regarding their site traffic. This intake will help us focus on what the analytics say about the site and help us tailor recommendations as a result.
Please note that while we will make recommendations about how to structure your site, how to make better use of features and functionality, and provide general suggestions regarding content changes to help meet your goals and objectives, we will neither make specific recommendations regarding your text nor guarantee specific results. Improving site traffic is a continuous effort and this engagement focuses on immediate one time changes basic on a snapshot of your site traffic and needs. It should by no means be construed as a single silver bullet.
Should you engage the Web Group to actually implement the recommendations we make, we will price the project according to the size of your existing site. These sizes follow the same categories and page ranges as the site building plans. The prices are smaller in acknowledgement that we are working with existing content rather than building a site from scratch and that there is no photo shoot which adds a significant amount to the cost.
Should new content be requested or required in order to implement accepted recommendations, the organization’s team must submit these in final form before the implementation can begin. In addition, if new content increases the number of total pages, the project may be priced in a larger project size.
Like a site build, the project team will review together the initial changes for adherence to the agreed upon approach. A round of edits are included in order to fine tune the changes before a final review and then going live with the revised site.
Faculty Lab Website Building Service
The first 20 pages in a lab website are built for free. While most lab websites are between 10-20 pages, some are much larger. To accommodate the larger websites, we’ve made 20-page “Expansion Bundles” available for $250 each. For example, a 60-page lab website would require two expansion bundles and cost a total of $500.
|Project Size||Page Range||Minimum Threshold1||Project Fee|
|Free||1-20 pages||1 page||$0|
|Expansion Bundle||20 pages||20 pages||$250|
