Dutch ContractingWEBSITE PROPOSAL
Thank you for the opportunity to submit a proposal for the design of the Dutch Contracting website.
Working together, we believe we can create a site that is simple to navigate and has a professional yet welcoming design.
Based on our discussion on the phone, we have identified and listed below the Needs and Solutions that we will want to address in this project.
Dutch Contracting needs a website to reach out to the community and also to serve and support the Dutch Contracting clients. The primary function of the website, initially is to allow Dutch Contracting to highlight their offerings, previous work (portfolio, case studies, etc.) and to allow clients (and potential clients) to contact them. The site has to be appealing, yet easy to use.
Buzzhive Marketing will provideDutch Contracting with a fresh new web design that is easy to navigate and provides useful information to potential and current clients. The design will also convey to potentials that Dutch Contracting is a professional, reliable company.
Content Management System
Central to the design from Buzzhive Marketing will be a robust Content Management System (CMS) that will allow Dutch Contracting to make changes easily to the website, without requiring a dedicated workstation or additional software. Not only will the CMS save Dutch Contracting website revision costs but it will also ensure that the website stays fresh and up to date.
- 5 pages (including homepage) TBD
All content for these pages must be provided by Dutch Contracting. The site is not limited to these pages, but are the primary starting point for the site, again based on our conversation and example sites.
Buzzhive Marketing will provide a preliminary design concept for the new website based on market research and their professional experience. That design concept will include the basic layout, color palette, font choices, etc.
The Dutch Contracting team can, at that point, request design revisions within the scope of the Fee Schedule (see below).
This design will be the starting point to get Dutch Contracting and Buzzhive Marketing ‘on the same page’ as far as design is concerned so that the end product is the perfect fit.
Integration of Content Management System
Once the design is approved, then Buzzhive Marketing will incorporate the Content Management System into the design.
Buzzhive Marketing will provide video tutorials, specific to the new the Dutch Contracting website, showing how to use the Content Management System.
When Dutch Contracting has finished incorporating all the content they wish to have at launch, they will ask Buzzhive Marketing to move the website from the development sub-directory to the main root level of the domain, thereby making the site go live. Congratulations!
Website Design and Setup
- create a custom website interface – layout, colors, and fonts

- Using the webpage template developed during the initial design phase, this includes integration of the main landing pages into site architecture and navigation:
Free One Year Hosting
As part of our current CMS package, we are offering a free first year hosting. Annual hosting renews at $99/year for standard hosting.
If, in the future, Dutch Contracting enters into a separate agreement with Buzzhive Marketing for marketing or support, the hosting fee is included with those subscription services.
If Dutch Contracting will be hosting the new build of the site on their own hosting, Buzzhive Marketing will install the site and no additional fee, assuming they have appropriate access to the hosting to upload files, create and manage databases, etc. Buzzhive Marketing does not support third-party hosting if errors arise, but will do their best to work with that third party hosting to offer the best product possible for Grow Pro.
The development of the site will be done on Buzzhive Marketing servers and viewed at a subdomain (something similar to ‘buzzhivestaging.com/dutch’) upon receipt of the final deposit, the site will go live on the final URL and/or be moved to it’s final hosting location.
If Dutch Contracting wishes Buzzhive Marketing to go forward with the project, here is the schedule for payments of the fee:
Total Web Design & Build Fee – $800
100% due upon acceptance of the proposal before work commences
Buzzhive Marketing will complete the site with the content provided within 30 days of the initial deposit. The site will be ready to launch and will expect that Dutch Contracting will be ready to launch at that same time, unless further arrangements have been made.
