bonus features, and live demos.
You Are Not A Website Builder. But We Are.
We build WordPress websites that look good and perform even better...
How about a blend of form, function and flexibility that marketers dream of, all wrapped up in an affordable website package? When we’re building a website, we’re building the foundation for your digital success. There’s nothing we’d rather be doing than exploring your brand and unlocking the potential for your business to flourish. It's what we love to do!
We understand that not every business owner can afford a completely custom website when they are just getting started.
Although there are plenty of DIY tools out there, they rarely deliver a good website, let alone one that really shines. Most website design tools leave you hanging. While they promise great results, they downplay the time, energy and skills needed to create an attractive website that delivers results. They are often more stress than they are worth. And when you do need help, or more storage, or analytics … that’s when you start to pay. The good news is you have options within a small business budget.
Why our small business website packages are so great...
We've come up with a solution that bypasses many obstacles presented by DIY platforms, reduces stress, saves you time, and delivers an affordable turn-key website you can be truly proud of. Built on WordPress, with tons of flexible options, you'll have everything you need. Best of all, we do all the work – from setting up hosting to design and implementation. No hidden fees. Completely customizable. You provide content and images -- we do the rest! It's the beginning of a fabulous relationship. You can continue to work with us as your business evolves and your budget allows.
Wouldn't it be great to have a team of experts to guide and assist you when you need it?
Say YES! to a beautiful, functional solution...

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Will my website be easy to use?
Of course. We provide you with package specific video tutorials to show you how to add your own pictures, add and manage blog posts, and manage basic website content following website launch.
We don’t cover advanced software development topics such as html, css, php, or jquery but then we don’t really need to. The website is already built and ready for you to use exactly as presented in the demo, but with custom content and images as provided by you.
Can I further customize my website at some point in the future?
Yes! Our startup website packages can be further customized by you at any point, which means that your website can evolve as your business grows.
All our websites are built on a content management system (CMS) called WordPress and powered by the Genesis Framework, which is completely open source.
What does that mean? It means you can customize code to your hearts content, at any point now or in the future. The WordPress community has thousands of developers creating brand new plug-ins and widgets every day, giving you unlimited options for the future.
Not comfortable further customizing the website yourself? That's okay! Since customization is our specialty, think of asking us to quote when you are ready to get a little more ambitious!

Are there any other fees I should be aware of?
Yes, domain name registration fees and website hosting fees will be your responsibility and are not included in the price of your website package. Read on for more information.
The cost to search and/or register domain names is not included in our website packages. You will need to check availability and register your own domain name(s). You can expect domain name registration charges to range from $12/year to $17/year USD per domain name. Some registrars charge an extra fee for privacy protection. Privacy protection is recommended.
We will require login credentials to your domain name registrar when it's time to launch your new website.
Although we recommend and set up website hosting on your behalf, the website hosting fees are not included in your package price. You can expect hosting charges to range from $100/year to $150/year USD.
How It Works
We recommend a trusted website hosting provider based on reliability, competitive pricing, storage capacity, and service support. Then, we set up hosting in your name, on your credit card, so that you have full control!
We don't provide hosting services ourselves, we recommend and set up your website on a best-in-class hosting provider.
If you should require our assistance with domain name registration, we charge a nominal fee for that service.
Do I need to set up website hosting myself?
No. We recommend and set up website hosting on your behalf. This way we can source the most reliable hosting and ensure optimal set up for your WordPress website!
Website hosting fees are your responsibility and are not included in the price of your website package. You can expect hosting charges to range from $100/year to $150/year USD.

How do Original Ginger's Quick Start Website Packages differ from DIY Platform Options?
DIY platforms typically charge an ongoing monthly fee for the lifetime of a website. They are built on proprietary platforms that are not portable and often have third party branding on them. Many advanced features are only available if you upgrade to a paid premium plan and even then there may be limitations to feature functionality. You should also be aware of any clauses related to ownership of your domain name registration.
An Original Ginger website is available for a one-time flat fee. You get a professional WordPress website that you can further customize yourself at any time. No upgrade fees and no add-on charges to unlock features or to access code. You have full access and ownership to manage your website, domain registration and hosting as you see fit. WordPress is open source and provides tons of flexibility to add any features you may require now or in the future.
What kind of experience can my customers expect from a Quick Start Website?
After my website is launched what type of support is available?
One of the biggest concerns business owners have is related to online security and how to protect their website from malware and hackers once it's launched. Website maintenance is not included with purchase of a website package; however, you can purchase and activate a maintenance plan with us at any time.
We cannot guarantee that your website will never be compromised (no one can!) but prevention, regular maintenance, and security monitoring are always the best deterrents. We will prompt you during checkout if you wish to inquire about website maintenance.
When you purchase a website package from us, we build and deploy it on your behalf in the theme colour you choose, and with the feature functionality you see in the demo. A knowledge of code is not mandatory for basic tasks like blogging, adding images, adding hyperlinks, or revising content; but, if you decide you want to further customize website features beyond what is included with your package we welcome all custom web design inquiries and can quote upon request.
Of course, you can customize the website yourself if you feel comfortable doing so -- there are no locked features -- WordPress is completely open source. Please note that we do not teach PHP, CSS, or HTML.
Do the demo photos come with the website package?
For licensing reasons, the images shown in the demos are not included with your package. They are for display purposes only. It’s important for business owners to distinguish their brand by using images unique to them. You will have an opportunity to provide photos for the home page of your website. We'll do the rest.
We recommend using professional high quality photos that are at least 1800px by 1000px in size. For those with a smaller budget, we suggest using stock images from places like Shutterstock or Adobe Stock. Once you've sourced your own images we'll prompt you to upload the images to a Dropbox for use on your website.
For a more custom approach, you can request a quote on our photography services. Remember, you only have one chance to make a good first impression.
Are home page featured areas flexible?
Yes, some website packages have flexible featured areas. If your package of choice shows featured blog posts on the demo home page; but, you decide not to have a blog, we can simply remove that section.
Some website packages show posts and pages in a specific home page featured area. For those sections, you have the option to choose pages, posts, or a combination of both. If the section only shows posts, or only shows pages, it means that section is likely not interchangeable within the basic package pricing.
Of course, any of our website packages can be further customized now or in the future. We would be happy to provide a quote. During the checkout process you will be prompted to identify any custom service requests.
Do you write the content for my website?
No. You will have an opportunity to provide your content to us for each page of the website including the home page featured areas. Content must be uploaded to our special form within 30 days. Content submitted any other way will not be accepted. You must use the form provided. In this package, we limit our content placement services to 5 pages and no more than 1000 words per page.
At that time we will also ask you to identify 4 standard pages for the navigation menu. We recommend an About Page, Services Page, Testimonials Page, and Contact Page. A Blog is automatically included with all packages.
We recommend that you carefully proofread your content before uploading to our servers. We do not proofread or edit the content in any way.
If we have not received content from you within 30 days of purchase the website is launched without content. Instead of a logo your business name will be added using a font native to the theme.
Not a writer? Don’t have time to do SEO research? If you’d like our help, you can request a quote on more comprehensive content writing services.
What is SEO and how does it relate to my website content?
When you write your own website content, you should do some keyword research and write your website content strategically so that it attracts search engines and helps people find your products/services. This is part of a process we call Search Engine Optimization or SEO.
That way when someone does a search using specific keywords related to your product/services, search engines will include your website in the list of relevant websites they should visit.
Not a writer? Don’t have time to do SEO research? If you’d like our help, you can request a quote on more comprehensive content writing services.
Are social media icons set up as part of my website package?
Website packages do not include set up of social media icons unless otherwise shown in the demo for that theme. If you have a basic understanding of WordPress already, you may be able to add social media icons yourself, once the website is launched.
If you are new to WordPress, and require our assistance, there is a nominal fee for this service. During the checkout process you will be prompted to identify any custom service requests.
Am I tied to Original Ginger's Services In Any Way?
No. Once we’ve built your site, it is fully portable and fully customizable. You directly own everything from the domain name to the content on the site. Of course, we are available to discuss and quote on customization, maintenance, content writing, video, and photography services should you need us.
How quickly will my website be ready to launch?
Typically, we are able to launch your website within a week; however, setting an actual launch date depends on how quickly you provide the information we require.
Once you purchase a website package, we will ask you to upload your brand logo, and personally branded content to our servers within 30 days of purchase. We will email you to schedule a service call to discuss hosting set up, image uploads, and any customization inquiries. Once we have that information and all of your deliverables we can deploy your website!
If you delay sending us your logo and content, or you cannot be reached for any reason, this extends the expected delivery date. Any customization you request can also change the time frame.
Customer service calls and project work are completed during standard office hours which are Monday through Thursday, 9:00am to 4:30pm PST.
Will my website display and function well on mobile devices?
All websites we build are fully responsive. Your website will load and adapt to whatever device it’s being viewed on; PC or Mac, desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Users love that, and so do search engines.
How secure can I expect my website to be?
Features don’t mean a thing if your site isn’t secure. We power our WordPress websites with the Genesis Framework, which adheres to WP security best practices. There's never any guarantee your website won't ever get hacked but prevention is always the best medicine.
Part of a solid prevention plan is to keep your website up to date. Once it's launched regular updates and upgrades can help prevent your site’s breakdown, fix broken links, remove or stop spam, scan for viruses, fix any bugs or other issues, and other tidbits as they come up.
You can maintain the website yourself or you can inquire with us about website maintenance plans.
Do website packages include video?
Website packages do not include embedding video on your website. If you have a basic understanding of WordPress already, you may be able to add video yourself, once the website is launched.
If you are new to WordPress, and require our assistance, we can quote this service separately. During the checkout process you will be prompted to identify any custom service requests.
Do website packages include logo design?
No. We will ask you to upload your existing brand logo to our servers following purchase of your website package in eps, ai, or png file format.
If you don't already have a logo, we will use your company name in the default font as shown in the website package demo.
If you'd like us to create a beautiful and authentic custom brand logo for you, please request a quote separately. We will prompt you to identify any extra service requests during the checkout process.
Can I get a refund if I don't like my website?
Your website will be deployed to hosting in full working order, just as you see in the demo. Demo photos are replaced with images you upload to our servers. Up to 4 pages of content are added, as provided by you. There are no surprises. Once we begin work setting up hosting or a website is deployed we have a no return, no refund policy. All sales are final. You will be asked to acknowledge our terms and conditions during the purchase process.
What type of support is included with an OG Quick Start Small Business Website Package?
Following purchase of your website package and upload of your content, an OG Customer Service representative will call you personally to explain next steps.
Then, we'll design and build the website package of your choice adding all of the carefully curated images, and personally branded content provided by you.
Following website launch, you get 3 months of membership access to our video tutorials library on "how to's" specific to your package like managing website content, adding images, adding blog posts, creating and/or editing hyperlinks, changing featured images and more. How cool is that?!
You will also receive a bonus information guide that includes a legend identifying the fonts and colour codes being used on your website so that you can easily brand your other marketing materials instantly. The future is looking brighter already!
Additional custom web design and development services not included in the package can always be quoted upon request.
Will I get to speak to a customer service representative if I have questions?
Yes, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a callback from a customer service agent. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our Quick Start Small Business Website Packages.
Following purchase of a Quick Start package you'll receive an email link prompting you to upload your logo and content to our servers. Once you upload your content, we'll email you to schedule a service call to the telephone number you provided.
During the call a customer service representative will answer questions, discuss hosting set up, image uploads, and any customization you may have requested. All calls are schedule during regular office hours Pacific Standard Time (PST). No exceptions. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 9am to 4:30pm.

NOTE: Customer services calls are not available to locations outside of Canada or the USA.
Can I add a shopping cart to any theme?
Yes, you can add a shopping cart to any website package. The Shop-Pro Website Package includes a shopping cart at no additional cost. For all other packages the addition of a shopping cart would be considered a customization. During the purchase process, you can indicate if you wish to receive a quote for any additional customization or you can email us at email@example.com.
What shopping cart features are included with the Shop Pro Website Package?
Our shopping cart of choice for the Shop Pro Package is an "out of the box" solution called Ecwid. We choose Ecwid because it is one of the most robust e-commerce platforms around for small businesses and start ups. It's mobile responsive and fully customizable so it can grow with your business.
Ecwid considers us at Original Ginger to be Ecwid Experts because we've built tons of websites using their shopping cart. *Visit Ecwid if you'd like more info.
When you purchase the Shop Pro Web Package it comes with a FREE version of the shopping cart already integrated for you. Although the FREE version limits some features and only allows up to 10 products and 2 categories in your store -- the next tier is priced at only $15/month USD and allows up to 100 products with bonus features like coupons and inventory management.
Following your purchase of this package, we'll configure basic shopping cart options for you as follows:
If you require other features for your storefront that are not listed above that means they are not included with the Shop Pro Website Package. If you require additional features, you can further customize the shopping cart yourself once the website is deployed, OR request customization services from us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*We recommend products we believe in. Links to Ecwid are affiliate links.
