Building New WordPress Sites

Did you think WordPress was only for blogging? In fact, it is the most powerful and flexible tool for building sites like this one.

Rethinking Old Sites

WordPress or not, web sites should be revamped every two years or so to keep up with the day’s norms and your own business goals.

Cantus What?

Whether you need a full-scale ecommerce solution, a redesign of your 5-year-old site to make it more mobile friendly, or you just need a few fixes, you can expect a friendly, creative and practical approach to your problems. As of 2015 we are now also adding mobile app development to our service offerings.

Run by a 18-year+ veteran web developer with experience as an in-house problem solver, a team member at a Top-10 Silicon Valley web/marketing agency and as an independent contractor, Cantus Firmus takes pride in the ability to offer a polished and effective solution for just about any kind of web site problem. We enjoy the process of breaking things down to manageable tasks and helping clients figure out what they need, and we love opportunities to steer folks away from unnecessarily complicated or expensive solutions.

Tiered Pricing Options *

For a new site with typical, basic requirements, Cantus Firmus offers a complete solution for a standard flat fee. Please inquire with the details of your project, and we’ll work that out for you.

Some projects just aren’t that straightforward. Maybe the package price is overkill for your needs, or you have special requirements. For ongoing maintenance, support or consulting for special WordPress projects, we have a unique and competitive “pay as you go” pricing model. As illustrated below, the hourly rates tier downward depending on the number of hours booked at a time.

Depending on the nature of your project and the scope of your requirements, we’ll help figure out the best pricing option for you. Tell us your story.
