We will discuss your needs on an individual basis and will design the website that best suits your business or organization both creatively and financially.
WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
At this time, Astute Design Studio accepts checks, paypal, and good ol' fashioned cash.
DO YOU HAVE A PAYMENT PLAN?
Payment is scheduled throughout the course of the creation of each site. Each proposal that we write contains a payment schedule based on the needs of each individual client. The first payment is due upon acceptance of the proposal, the final payment is due upon final approval, and the rest is due at specific milestones throughout the course of the project.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS TO CHARITIES?
Yes, and we encourage charitable agencies to contact us! We are happy to discount our design fees for local charities and non-profit organizations, especially for those located in Middle TN. Please contact us for more information.
DO YOU OFFER SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION?
Yes, the website designers and developers at Astute Design Studio have training in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). All websites designed by Astute Design Studio include basic Search Engine Optimization at no extra cost.
WHY SHOULD WE CHOOSE YOU OVER OTHER DESIGNERS?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DESIGN A WEBSITE?
It is different for each client. The length of time it takes to create a website from start to finish depends on a lot of factors. That said, most of our sites are completed in 2-4 months – provided that you supply us with the required text/images right away and submit your feedback promptly.
WHAT TYPE OF SOFTWARE DO YOU USE?
CAN I DO MY OWN WEBSITE MAINTENANCE?
Yes, we can supply you with a content management system for your website which allows you to edit your own content without needing to know any HTML code at all.

The choice is yours and we will be happy to discuss the various website maintenance options when that time comes.
