We work collaboratively with our clients to uncover the most effective and efficient way to achieve their needs.

Process & Pricing

Development packages

Pricing and packages are currently being changed at this time. Feel free to contact us for a quote.

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: Progressive Design Feedback Loop

The outline

The 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. Define

We 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. Ideate

Once 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. Prototype

Now 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. Analyze

Any 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.
WebCare Plans

WebCare Plans

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!

This is the Water Energy Nexus Registry website, a sub-site of The Climate Registry. This is technically part of the same WordPress installation as The Climate Registry, as we wanted to be sure people could load into both at the same time.
This website was created for a client on Codeable in June of 2016. Most of the main items were on this one page, and then we also linked to the already existing store in parts of the menu. We also set up the blog and made the posts sharable on social media.
This is a logo I created for my gaming channel on Youtube.
Vendo Casas – DFW for Digital Space Consulting While working with Digital Space Consulting, I was put in charge of building out and coding the Vendo Casas DFW website. This included several forms and a house listing system with infinite scroll implimented. The forms collect the data, mail the leads to Vendo Casas – DFW, and also place the data into a database for review inside of the WordPress dashboard.
Home Tax Solutions for Digital Space Consulting While working with Digital Space Consulting, I was put in charge of coding the re-designed home page as well as the landing pages. I also coded the mail processor which connected to Salesforce as well as e-mailed several other people at Home Tax Solutions.
Hot Love Soup I worked on the conversion to a responsive site that works on mobile for Hot Love Soup. The site had already been designed by someone else but the responsiveness had not been completed.
This site was done for the Metropole Global Forum in Los Angeles, California. Due to budget constraints, mobile responsiveness was never completed. View site
Sifa Children Family is a ministry which houses, feeds, clothes, and educates children in the nation of Uganda. This site uses WP E-Commerce, Events Made Easy, and SlideDeck. A great example of what can be done with responsive design as well!
This website is for The Master’s Fellowship of Raleigh, a christian golfing outreach ministry in Raleigh, North Carolina. The site is full screen and responsive, and is powered by WordPress. NOTE – This organization is no longer in existence. However, I do have a backup of the site and will be bringing it back up soon as an example of the work I’ve done, and I do not yet want to remove this from the portfolio.
This site has been taken down by request of Patrick Seraphin while he gets some things straightened out. The site will eventually be back up. Patrick Seraphin is a client I started working for in July 2013. He’s a children’s author and motivational speaker. The website is responsive and working well on both mobile and desktop. It is a WordPress-powered website with a three-column theme designed to meet Patrick’s needs. He is also our first client (besides 1ParkPlace who used SlideDeck for most of their clients) to be using SlideDeck on his website. Though the website is now lauched, development and maintenance continues on this site
Done for 1ParkPlace Client: Urban Homes San Diego Tasks” Fix styling issues, remove elements of SlideDeck that were not needed Urban Homes San Diego is a client of 1ParkPlace. My main job on this was to remove elements of SlideDeck that weren’t needed as well as fix some styling issues that the site had. I added the agent login and placed the “Dwell Well San Diego” graphic into a more suitable position from where it was originally. I also worked to make the agent search page responsive. The menu at the top is not what I’d call responsive, but 1ParkPlace didn’t really focus that much on responsiveness. This site is owned by Urban Homes San Diego and overall development is done by 1ParkPlace.
Done for 1ParkPlace Client: Joan Castro Tasks: Style the custom listing wizard, create and style secondary and sub navigation Joan Castro/Castro Marketing is a client of 1ParkPlace. On this site, I had to create sub-navigation and style it, as well as style the custom listing wizard. This site is owned by Castro Marketing and overall development is done by 1ParkPlace.
Done for 1ParkPlace Client: Prudential Americana Group Tasks” Style sidebars, fix issues with navigation and home page. This site eventually became one of 1ParkPlace’s base templates for one of their packages as well. Las Vegas Luxury was the first of many sites based on this template we designed and developed at 1ParkPlace. For this site, I had to style the sub-navigation, sidebars, and forms. I also had to correct a number of issues that were on the front page at the time they put me on the project. This site is owned by Prudential Americana Group and overall development is done by 1ParkPlace.
Client: Patrick Seraphin: Children’s Author and Motivational Speaker
This website was not completely designed exactly designed by me, but by the author of the book, Romance Éternelle, Lawrence Miquelon, using GoDaddy’s website builder. However, he had me convert it to WordPress and take care of some design issues on the front page as well The site is mostly a simple-text based site. Originally, he had set it up where the photo of the grapes and the wine glass would take up the whole page. However, he wanted the text to curve with the wine glass, as you see that it does not. I re-did the design for a fixed page because with the way it previously worked, it would look good at one resolution, but when it was taken to another resolution, it would have been messed up. I also edited a mobile template somewhat to fit the color scheme of the front page of the site. The mobile template has a little bit different feel but it works great for mobile browsers.
Description: I had planned on creating a Linux based distribution (I still may do it) called Shasta ACS (Advanced Creation System) for graphic designers, musicians, and other creative types, named after one of my favorite counties in northern California.
C&C Industries (not sure they ever took off, this project went unpaid)
Description: Eagledream Multimedia was the company that I founded and ran for a short time. This was the logo, which I had designed for Eagledream Multimedia.
San Diego Cabinets/AuctionExpress.com had employed me in 2010, and one of my responsibilities was re-designing and maintaining the eCabinets web site. On this site, I had designed Dreamweaver templates (this site has since been converted to a content management system by someone who came in after me) where they could update just what they needed in Dreamweaver without breaking the design. I had also programmed a contractor’s directory that was driven by PHP and a MySQL database. I also set up their initial e-commerce system.
Description: This was a project I did while I was at the School of Communication Arts. It was supposed to be a Film Noir drawing project. The Passion of the Christ is not exactly a Film Noir movie. However, there were dark moments that would work very well for this project, and that is why it was chosen.

Never Give Up On Your Goals

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.

Why I Haven’t Been Using Codeable Lately

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 ...

The Clients That I Avoid, and How To Avoid Them

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 ...

Moving Exclusively To Codeable
