What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I like to meet first (in person or phone) for a free consultation. Typically a 50% deposit is due to engage my services work. I like to get to know the company from the inside out. It is imperative to our success together that I get a firm handle on how your company operates so I can emulate that online.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My standard hourly rate is $105. My standard website fees start at $3,125 and reach over $10,000 depending on the scope of the project. SEO campaigns begin at $525/month. I quote all projects out first so there are no big surprises along the way. (However, please do anticipate small expenses along the way.) All websites are built on high SEO standards, with the goal of ranking higher on search engines.

How did you get started in this business?

"Chad began a life of computers at the age of 3. His parents worked from home so they both had computers starting in the early 90s. He cut his teeth on IBMs and quickly became interested in web pages once he got access to the internet at home. Chad was tinkering on every website building platform available – learning the basics and eventually building his first website at the age of 9. Closing his first website sale in 7th grade, Chad Lewine has been professionally designing websites for over 10 years. He began as a youngster tinkering in MS-DOS, playing computer games and customizing web pages in the AOL days. Graduating from Art Institute of Pittsburgh with an A.S. in Web Design and Interactive Media, Lewine moved to Brooklyn in 2011 for a high-profile web agency job. He began freelancing full-time shortly after that. Now, Chad is at the helm of designing and marketing websites for local and national clients. CDL500 is both a digital marketing agency and the umbrella organization for Lewine’s professional dealings in art, music, and B2B services."

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

1) Do some due-diligence. Not all website designers are great at business or SEO. 2) Gather some websites that you really like ready to share for inspiration. If someone has done it online, it can be replicated. The sky is the limit with web design. 3) Ask yourself if you are happy with your branding. The colors and logo truly tie a website together.
