How much will it cost?

We are not the cheapest provider you will find, but we strive to give the best value.

If you've never built a site before, or had one built, you may be in for a bit of a surprise. The unhappy truth is...there is a lot more to a web project than you might think, and often that means more money than you want to spend. But here at 3 Step, we keep the cost down by making you part of the process. When you do some of the work, you put money in your pocket. We'll show you how to do it, and help you fix it when it doesn't work.

We call this "Do It Yourself, Done Right". The important thing to our approach are never left alone and frustrated. You always have a dedicated web coach you can call on, who will answer the phone, knows your name, and has the experience to make you succeed.
