Welcome to the Chico Designs Associates page!
This page is only for approved Associates. You must first get in contact with us to get an associate code before referring clients to us. Associates must agree to follow our terms and conditions on this page.
Instructions for Associates
You must make it clear to clients you are working with that you are an associate of Chico Designs, but not an employee, and cannot provide specific advice or quotes on behalf of Chico Designs. You can’t sell our products under any business name besides Chico Designs. You are not allowed to sell our services under a white label without written permission. If you meet with clients you can gather information about the project to send to us. Here are some recommended questions to ask clients:
Do you need a new web design or redesign?
What is the purpose of the website? What do you hope to accomplish?
How many sections do you want the website to have?
What platform is the website? HTML, WordPress, Shopify, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, etc..
What is your budget for the web design project?
After meeting or talking to a client fill out the form on this page with the relevant information. We will get in contact with the client and get any additional information we need, and give them a quote (we will also send you a copy of the quote). If they decide to get a website we will send you 20% of the web design deposit, and 20% of the final payment after the site is completed. The maximum referral fee you will receive per client is $1000.
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to design a new website?
It depends on the type of website. Most common websites will be completed within 2 weeks of receiving the content. Sites that have more than 6 sections may take longer.
What kinds of websites can you make?
We create all different types of websites from informational pages, business sites, blogs, eCommerce sites, catalogs, online communities, resumes, and more. You can always email us questions you have about specific projects.
How much will a website cost?
As an associate you can’t tell clients specific prices. If they need a website with 5 or less pages and doesn’t seem very complicated, you can tell them that it will likely cost less than $1000, but the designer will need to take a look at the details first and get back to them. The minimum cost for a new WordPress website is $750.
