Solutions in Exchange for Costs

We choose to work in exchange for costs rather than for profit or salary. This means that you will cover our direct costs during the project. If we are staying elsewhere and you would like us to work for you remotely, our monthly costs are typically around 500 € / US $620.

We offer free consultation prior to accepting a project 1) to make sure that hiring us is worthwhile for you and 2) to ensure we will exceed your expectations. If we can solve your problems quickly for free, starting a costly project or travelling over makes no sense.

Päivi & Santeri Kannisto working for Sam in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

In exchange for coming over and working for you, we ask for:

  • A private, lockable room for working, sleeping and storing our gear
  • Vegan food, or ingredients and kitchen for cooking
  • Internet connection as websites can not be designed offline
  • Visas and other travel expenses (*)

Our only limitation is that we are not willing to participate in any kind of activities that harm sentient beings, for example fishing, hunting, marketing non-vegan food and restaurants, promoting zoos and smoking. For more information, feel free to use the contact form or email us at contact@webseodesigners.com.

(*) Travel expenses may be negotiable. If we travel to a new country, we are sometimes willing to pay for the tickets by ourselves.

Tools for testing your website

We have been working with websites since the dawn of the world wide web, when there were less than a million web pages in the whole world. Today there are more than a billion sites, 1000 times more than twenty years ago. Despite the huge growth, the underlying concepts and technologies remain the same. As people use the Internet increasingly with mobile devices and phones, loading speed and responsive design are becoming ever more essential. We have collected the following tools for you to make sure that your website works with mobile devices and ranks well in search engines.

If your website is too slow, you lose visitors.

Mobile-friendliness

Most of us are using mobile phones & devices.

Errors in html code
