Don't gamble your money and waste your time hiring managers, designers, artists, programmers, and quality assurance technicians to create your website.
Choose Stoic Dreams to be your personal website development team.
We have developed a systematic, highly efficient, development workflow. When combined with our highly talented team, you get exceptional websites built in exceptionally short times.
We are a small, focused team. We only work with one client at a time. And we will deny projects that we don't feel like we would be a good fit for.
So make sure to start your consultation below to secure your spot and see what we can do for you.
Stoic Dreams can build you a new website, custom built from the ground up to meet your explicit needs.
Let Stoic Dreams build it for you.
We offer the full package. Giving you a custom created website, or websites, built from the ground up to meet your requirements. We do not use cookie cutter website building tools or templates. Instead, we custom build every part of your website to be easy to use, easy to manage, stable, and run smoothly.
Absolutely not. Cookie cutter solutions are a great option for many companies and situations. They're typically cheap and very fast to implement. And as long as you don't need much customization, the good ones typically work very well for what they're designed for.
But sometimes you need more customization than just colors and fonts. You may care about providing the best user experience for your customers. You may have already learned that paying more for a better quality product up front, will save you a lot more money in the long term by reducing update and maintenance costs.
This is where we fit in.
A typical development package from us may include:
You provide a monthly budget for hosting, and answer the 5 W's detailing what your website needs to be about, and we will take care of the rest.
We pride ourselves on our efficiency. We are percieved to be very fast. But from our perspective, we take our time to make sure everything is well thought out, thoroughly tested, and works the best it can.
We do not like taking shortcuts, nor do we like making compromises in our work. We put the end user first. What is their experience going to be? What value will they get from the website? How can we match that value with your goals?
Put frankly, we know what we're doing. Which is why we put in place many of the restrictions noted above. We know many things we have listed on this page, and admittedly many of our values as developers, go against the grain of common practices in our industry. But this is what makes our products great.
Our Guarantee: Any development contract with us may be cancelled in writing at any time. When terminiated, any paid funds for the current or future months will be refunded with a pro-rated rate, based on the day of the month the cancellation is received. At our discretion, we may provide a full refund for the month in place of a pro-rated rate.
We believe we can save you thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars in monhtly development costs, versus hiring your own personal team of managers, designers, graphic artists, programmers, quality anaylists, and server administrators. And we believe that we can not only save you time and money, but that you will also end up with a better end product.

The table here represents an estimate, or educated guess, of development costs and time of a typical project consisting of 1 front end, transactional website of medium size for sales; 1 backend transactional website for admin and reporting; Server setup; Setup for basic email service for email confirmations and small newsletter campaigns.
For the sake of simplification, we estimate the average employee cost at $100,000 per year per employee. This estimate factors in a moderate salary, insurance, computer equipment, and any other related employee costs.
We don't achieve this by having the smartest programemrs, or the best designers. We make these claims because we know how a lot of development companies and teams build their websites.
We've experienced the pros and cons of rushing a website idea to market. And in our experience, the lack of planning and pressure to finish tasks in unrealistic timelines always lead to failed projects.
Or the benefits and costs of a corporation taking several months to have their executives and managers carefully plan and design their website idea. And then spending well over a year, with dozens of employees involved, to build and bring that idea to market. Investing literally millions of dollars in salaries before the product is even launched. And in the end, still have a poorly designed website and service, that required constant updates, refinements, and rebuilds, but was expensive to update and maintain.
And through our many years of experience and analyzing these failures and successes, we developed a streamlined workflow to efficiently design, prototype, build and deploy cutting edge websites that are fast, secure, easy to use, and designed to effortlessly guide the user where they need to go. While also assuring that feature and content updates after launch will be simple and easy.
Note: Timeline estimates are expected to include starting from an initial concept; Work through design and development phases; And ultimately reach a fully realized, professionally designed, highly polished website package that runs smoothly and securely.
*: We believe in providing estimates that can be relied on. We've seen time and time again developers and companies promise exceptionally short development cycles, only to communicate at the last minute that they need more time. And too often this cycle repeats until the development time taken was over ten times the original estimate. We take the time up-front to properly plan and gauge development time, padding a little extra time to account for potential unknowns and issues. And we charge based on development time, not estimations. So if we finished early, we save you even more money.
