Welcome to Spring Sunrise Website Designs by Richard Chu
Spring Sunrise Designs offers affordable and effective web design for small businesses interested in expanding their reach and increasing their credibility with a custom-designed website fitting the style, intent and tone of their business in a globalized world.

Why have a website for your business?

  1. It's an inexpensive form of advertising - For any small business, advertising is an expensive component for success that can take thousands of dollars a month from the bottom line. Websites, on the other hand, are only a fraction of the cost per month, and are effective 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with relatively little upfront setup and design costs.


  2. It's a dynamic tool to reach clientele - Unlike traditional forms of advertising (newspapers, radio, phonebook), websites can be updated with the latest specials from your small business, or up-to-date information about your company and contact information.


  3. It adds credibility to your business - The opportunity to gain referral and repeat clientele is virtually a click away. A website for your small business can instill confidence in your clients by illustrating your success in reliably serving your clients' needs.


  4. It's a portal to expanding your market - When the time is right for your business and when you are ready, your company website can extend the reach of your business beyond your local market to one of global proportions. Whether shipping your products out, or providing services for clients coming to you, your website is the key to expanded possibilities.

What is a 'Day-in-the-Life' of a Client of Spring Sunrise Design?

Before any design work is implemented, Richard will go through detailed consultations with you over your needs and desires with your website. You can be assured a custom-designed website built from the ground up, tailored to style, intent and tone you want your small-business website to project. Any questions you have regarding your needs is usually addressed at this time, to clarify any uncertainty before going forward. This is meant to ensure that Richard understands your needs, and your expectations are understood and carried out as realistically as possible.

After 'putting everything out on the table,' a proposal detailing setup and design costs is provided. Costs will depend on the complexity of the site and the amount of graphic design work is required to fulfill your website's needs.

Some basic costs to keep in mind when deciding on creating a website for your business include:
  • Domain Name Registration (Fee based on 1-year, 2-year or 5-year registration)
  • Web Hosting Server Fees (generally monthly fees which can be paid annually)
  • Website Design Fee (initial setup, plus additional charges based on updates you want)
  • Website Promotion Charges (generally for insertion into specific databases, search engines, or website banners on major internet portals)
Depending on the complexity of the website and the amount of graphic design work, activation of the website generally occurs two to three weeks after initial consultation. During that time, Richard will keep you frequently updated on the progress of the website and keep you 'in the loop' to avoid unnecessary delays due to significant changes after the work is done.
