As an independent web services provider, I use the progressive design method to help the client meet their goals of the website that is being built. The progressive design method was created by ZURB and I have since adopted this method because it’s best for both you, the client, as well as the designer and developer. There are 5 phases of the progressive design method:
The outlineThe following is a general outline and pricing (other than the $300 for the two discovery sessions) may differ from what you see, but this is generally how it’s done. A more detailed outline will be given when all required discovery sessions are completed.
I. DefineWe define the problem we’re trying to solve together. A goal is then defined, and research begins on how to get to that goal. This starts with a minimum of two discovery sessions and 6 hours of research on your area of business. – Begin the process
II. IdeateOnce research has completed, we then move forward to creating ideas for the website. We don’t start with a full mock-up/prototype, but rather small details, such as buttons, graphics that should be used, etc.
III. PrototypeNow the prototyping/mock-up begins. I generally like to work with the client on creating one live mock-up/prototype.
IV. Build:Now we move from the prototype to building the site. This will take at least a month to do properly, and possibly more. During this time, it’s not just building, but testing and getting feedback from you, the client. – $4000 for 4 weeks of development
V. AnalyzeAny good website will need to be tested. In testing, I like to find real people to view the site and get a real-world idea of how the website works. And if needed, we can go back to one of the other phases. $2500 for three weeks of analyzing. During the process, we’ll have an online meeting at least twice per week. If possible, we can do one of the meetings as a local meeting once per week, assuming you’re in the Charlotte, NC area. Each phase is set to a particular amount of time. The above is a general guide and the bare minimum of what a properly designed website will cost. However, it may be discovered in the discovery sessions that what you want will be more complex, and in that case, we’ll create and agree upon a different outline for you. On top of that, You’ll receive level 2 or level 3 Webcare at a $100/month discount for the first year once your web solution has been built. More information on Webcare here.
Website maintenance is important, but often overlooked. Business owners normally don’t think about it. And why should you as a business owner? That’s not your job. But someone has to do it.
Without proper maintenance, WordPress websites are vulnerable to hacking. Security and maintenance is not one-time, but ongoing. The same can be said for your content maintenance and marketing. Cagle Web Solutions has three different plans to cover your needs!

I hope you’re all doing well. I realize it’s been almost a year since I’ve posted an update. Basically, I had to take a job at Food Lion, and eventually at Target again. And working at Target, my schedule is quite random. I now have Mondays dedicated to web development, as well as alternating from ...
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been making progress in recent years. We see self-driving cars being tested more and more with success. Neural networks are learning more and more, and how to do more and more. At the same time, automation and AI are threatening to replace jobs. I think many people assumed, for a long ...
I’ve given on on website design and development – at least twice. And it’s something I won’t ever do anymore, unless I decide that it’s impeding me from other things I want to do in life. For me, something didn’t feel right when I quit website design and development those two times. I might have ...
The new site is up! And before the end of the new year! The new products have been added. But I’ve set it up where you don’t immediately buy. Why is this? Because I want to make sure you’re getting the right product for your needs. Everyone’s needs will vary. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, ...
Hi everyone! A rebranding is happening right now! First, a name change is coming. In the beginning of the year, Joey Cagle Web Solutions will be Cagle Web Solutions. Furthermore, I’m changing the pricing model a bit. I’m still implementing the progressive design method. However, I am taking more of a subscription-based, productized, approach. Essentially, ...
At one time, Codeable was a place for me to find the majority of my clients. It was a great place. I still have my Codeable profile. But I’m not really seeking any new work on it. Part of that was because I took a much needed break, but there are other reasons too. So ...
So basically at the end of last year and the beginning of this year, things kind of crashed with web development for me. On top of that, my father passed away at the end of January. I’ve had to move a couple of times and I took on two different retail jobs in the span ...
In employment, especially in a bad economy and for someone who doesn’t have much money and is unemployed, the advice is often “take what you can get.” It’s easy to apply the advice to freelancing too, but you really shouldn’t. I know from experience. If you settle for a lesser price or a lesser type ...
Due to the way things have gone the past couple of years, and the fact that I have had my best clients come through Codeable, I have decided to work exclusively through them from this point on. It came to my attention that, though I had a set up similar to how many web designers ...
