We’re going to work together to create an online presence for Maven Social where:
We believe good website design, site maintenance, and design retainer services are an investment that will increase your bottom line over time. Depending on your business, they often pay for themselves many times over in the first year alone.
Below you can see the different services we can offer for your project. Each service is à la carte, allowing you to select only the services you value. The cost of each service is based on our understanding of your unique needs and the anticipated work required to meet them.
This is paid according to the timeline set in our Terms & Conditions. Paying promptly allows us to get straight to work so you can get the boost you’re looking for without delay.
SITE MAINTENANCE PLAN DISCLAIMER:You have not chosen our site maintenance plan.
If you do not purchase the site maintenance plan, we strongly recommend ensuring you have high-quality hosting. Our favorite is WPX hosting because of the low price, high speeds, and 30-second chat support. If you do not have high-quality hosting, we cannot guarantee high-speed performance.
If you do not purchase the site maintenance plan, we strongly recommend you purchase your own Elegant Themes license. This will ensure all your sites get regular updates to continue functioning smoothly long-term. Under the terms of our license, we can only provide those updates to sites we maintain.Please check the box below confirming you understand.
DETAILS OF THE WORKYou, Maven Social, are hiring us, Skout Media, LLC, to design and develop websites for the estimated total price outlined above.
You certify that you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project, including text, images, fonts, and other information as and when we need it and in the format that we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign-off approval promptly and are bound by any deadlines that we set together. You also agree to keep to the payment schedule set out in this proposal.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need, and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. We will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but are not responsible for a missed launch date or deadlines if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved our work on time at any stage. We will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us. We will create designs for the look, layout, and functionality of your website. This contract includes one main design and two opportunities for you to make revisions to the final design. If you are not happy with the design at that point, we will provide you with an additional quote for the extra design work needed. If you wish to cancel our agreement, you may do so, and we will retain the payments for the work completed to date. DESIGN TESTINGWe will test our designs in current versions of all major browsers, including those made by Apple, Microsoft, and Google.
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple's Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Chrome unless otherwise agreed upon. TEXT CONTENTWe are not responsible for writing or inputting any text copy. We will be happy to help, but significant work on our part will result in a charge above and beyond the original price. This will not be done without your approval of an additional quote provided in advance. PHOTOGRAPHSIf needed, you will supply us with photographs either in digital or printed format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, that price will be added to the initial quote. Stock photography will not be purchased without your written approval. You are also encouraged to check sites like Unsplash.com for royalty-free stock images. CHANGES AND REVISIONSThe estimate/quotation prices in this proposal are based on the time we estimate we will need to accomplish everything you have told us you want to achieve. If you want to change your mind, add extra pages, or even add new functionality, that won't be a problem. At that time, you will be provided with an additional quote for the extra work. For anything outside the scope of this original agreement, we may charge an additional 30% scope fee to our normal hourly rate. TECHNICAL SUPPORTThe quote provided includes the installation of your site on your server. Updates to and management of that server, plus any support issues or integrations like Google Analytics, will be up to you unless you choose to purchase our managed hosting service.
We do not offer or include technical support for website hosting, email, or other services relating to website hosting unless you choose to purchase our site maintenance plan. LEGALWe are not liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings, or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this website and any other web pages—even if you have advised me of the possibilities of such damages.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason is unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. COPYRIGHTSYou guarantee that you either own any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide for inclusion in the website or that you have permission to use them.
When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the visual elements that we create for you for this project, and you should store them carefully as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files that we used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs, and other data you provided unless someone else owns them. We own the HTML markup, CSS, and other code, and we license it to you for use on only this project.
We own our premium theme license and cannot share it with you unless you purchase our site maintenance plan. This means if you wish to continue receiving theme updates, you will need to purchase your own license.
We also reserve the right to display a link in the footer, link to your completed project as part of our portfolio, and write about the project on/in websites, magazines, and books. PAYMENTSOur payment schedule will be as follows but may be revised based on further conversations between us.
We accept payments via check or PayPal.
CONTRACT TRANSFERYou cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason, one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions, and the remaining parts of it remain in place.
I, the undersigned, have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions, agree to abide by the payment schedule, and approve the details outlined in this Project Proposal.
