About PCGS Pricing
To understand how the PCGS business model works, please review the Pricing FAQs page. All PCGS work is accomplished through PCGS Service Bundles. You purchase time in the form of labor. It’s a good thing. Clients realize true value over the course of each PCGS Service Bundle as their project is built. Yes—this is a unique approach. But word on the street is that bundle-based Web development is becoming a popular business model. PCGS clients love it. No obligations or strings attached beyond the PCGS Service Bundle purchased. PCGS clients remain very loyal to an ongoing relationship. Please reach out if you have any questions about this aspect.
Understand PCGS Project Practices
Please be advised before a PCGS Service Bundle is purchased, it’s best you have an overview of PCGS site building and maintenance practices.
HOSTING: If you are serious about your business, you are encouraged to purchase at the very least an annual WPEngine Personal hosting account. Feel free to click the link in the sidebar to get the latest discount. Yes, PCGS is an affiliate—but only after working with them for years without being an affiliate. WPEngine has earned its well deserved place in the PCGS project practices. At this point, it is silly to not be an affiliate. Their hosting is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny.
MAINTENANCE: Once a project is complete, most PCGS clients will eventually enter into a PCGS Maintenance Subscription plan for their sites. Maintenance is a separate product/scope of work and has its own separate PCGS product price. WPEngine hosting is required. So if you hope to have PCGS maintenance please get a WPE account.
