You just landed that new client. You got the down-payment check or contract (hopefully both). You sit down with the slim scraps of content you drug out of them during the meeting, probably consisting of grabbing some low res version of their logo from an old website and a business card with a phone number and if you’re lucky… an email address.
First things first, you’ve got to get everything setup before you can even start. You’ll need to pay the license fee for that fancy WordPress theme they wanted, then there’s another hit for the slider plugin that you’re used to, add the yearly fee for your social media plugin, and after a few more things you’ll need to get this website running in tip top shape, you realize you didn’t charge near enough as your profit margin starts to dwindle. I’m sure you were smart and charged them full price for all the fees, but did you figure in the yearly fees and all of your time involved setting everything up?
I’ve been building websites for 20 years and even after I’d learned this lesson time and time again, I still found myself holding the short end of the stick when it came to charging clients all the fees to set up and keep their website updated. I would have given anything to work with a company like Mozaic. To be able to setup a client, charge them 1 monthly fee, and have someone else take care of all the updates and maintenance, sounds like web designer heaven.
Typical WordPress Hosting
Let’s take a look at a price breakdown for setting up your average WordPress hosting website.
- WordPress Hosting Fee – $20 / month
- Theme License – $60
- Slider – $20
- Social Media Plugin – $50
- Forms Plugin – $40
- Live Chat Plugin – $30
- Inbound Marketing Platform – $20 / monthTOTAL SETUP COST – $240
Just to set up an average website, you’re looking at $240 in license fees! It’s not a huge chunk of change, but if you’re trying to stay competitive with your pricing, it can eat into your profit margins drastically. After a year has gone by paying for all the monthly fees, you could easily be out $1000 – $1500. Where is your profit now?
When we started Mozaic, this was exactly what we were working to eliminate. Most of the products web developers purchase one at a time have multi-license fees that are a little steep for a single designer, but can be absorbed by a hosting company in order to make your cost as low as it can be. We purchase the multi-site and multi-user licenses and spread the cost out amongst our hosting clients.

TOTAL SETUP COST WITH MOZAIC – $39
Again, if you priced out all of the costs you’d pay $240 just to setup about half of what our platform has to offer. With our service you can pay as little as $39 per month for access to all of our basic services. That saves you $200 right out the door. I’m sure you can see the value in that. There’s nothing better than finding a great deal on the plugins and upgrades you want to add to a client’s website. Over the course of a year, once you figure in paying hosting fees, access fees, and renewing those licenses each year, Mozaic can save you hundreds of dollars. That’s money in your pocket!
The Mozaic WordPress Platform offers premium themes and plugins already installed and paid for. Once the account is live, you are ready to do what you love, build websites. No need to track down registration codes or deal with any problems uploading themes and plugins. It’s done! All you have to worry about is how you’re going to get a company bio from your client before the deadline for getting the website completed.
Make Money With Mozaic WordPress Hosting
Not only does our platform save you money, it can also make you money as well. We have complete WHMCS Integration with your WordPress Hosting account. This means you can invoice your clients directly through our system for their individual hosting accounts. Once you bring on your first client, we drop our monthly price to you. The more you bring onto our system, the less your hosting bill is! You can charge them $39 a month while only paying us as low as $19 a month for their hosting account. I’ll go more in-depth into how that system works in the near future, but I’m sure you can agree, it’s a nice perk!
