Welcome to Brand Nuvo !
We provide creative services related to branding, web development and web presence - and everything in between.
We are a global team of coders, designers and entrepreneurs, with many years of real life experience.
Our passion is to help you build a strong brand identity and making the Web an integral part of your business and your bottom line.
How do we work?
Brand Nuvo is a creative agency with expertise in Brand/Web Development and Web Presence.
We offer a long-term relationship with a qualified team of developers and designers.
Depending on your budget, it usually takes a few months of small but well thought-out effort, for a new website (or an existing one that was just ‘sitting there’), to start generating consistent traffic and to really start promoting your brand.
With Brand Nuvo, you could have the support of a team of experts behind you, similar to what large companies have, only without breaking the bank.
We work together with you to find the ways to grow your web presence organically – that feels natural to you, rather than chasing a current buzzword fad.
Our tokenized ‘Service Block’ system makes it possible for you to keep your expenses within your budget, while giving our Project Managers enough freedom and flexibility to deal with the changing nature of web/brand development projects.
We are currently developing our client base. We are not planning to build a large client base at this point.
What Web Frameworks do we use?
We currently work with WordPress, Shopify and static HTML.
How does the payment work?
Many of the products and services you purchase from us come with payment plans, which are tied to the amount of work being done and the current phase of a project.
The subscription-based services (like Site Guard) and orders below $300 have no payment plans, however.
What are Service Blocks?
Many different specialist skills are required, to put a website together or create a brand identity. Coding, photography, graphic design, SEO, etc,etc. With Service Blocks, we are able to combine these different skills in a way that matches the project at hand. With Service Blocks, you can order a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
The current price of one Service Block is CAD$ 38.00 and it represents an average hourly cost across all Service Levels.
Depending on the level of expertise and experience that is required to provide a particular Service, we pay different rates per hour to our team members.
For instance: a Specialist Web Developer with a lot of experience and ability to code new functionality for a particular plugin (i.e. WooCommerce) is paid at $65/hour, while a rookie Web Designer, who can alter some visual aspects of your website, will be paid at $18 to $25/hour, depending on their ability.
Much of the time, it is impossible to know in advance, how many hours of a particular Service Level will be needed in order to complete a project. Our Clients would like to know (rightly so), what is included in a Service product, while our Project Managers would like to have their hands free and be able to change things, as the project reveals itself.
The Service Block concept solves most of these problems.
The number of Service Blocks you purchase will give you a very good idea about the ‘amount of service’ you’re getting, but will only give you an approximate idea about the actual number of hours of work of any particular type.
Our Project Managers will distribute the work to different people, based on the type of work at hand, balancing the need to minimize your cost while providing the best possible service.
The Service Block system is completely transparent, in the sense that you will be able to see what was paid to whom and at what rate. But the reason it makes it easier on our Project Managers, is that they don’t have to know (and Quote) the number of hours allotted to a particular service – IN ADVANCE. This way, the type of work assigned to a project can be changed, on the fly.
What are Niche Websites?
Rather than building your WordPress website from scratch, we have prepared the packages with pre-configured premium($$$) plugins, dedicated to specific industries.
The premium functionalities included in our Niche Websites are usually found in high end CUSTOM solutions. They are a distillation of many years of work with many clients. With these ‘out-of-the-box websites’ we can offer high quality web applications at below the market prices.
When you are buying a Niche Website, the price is divided into 2 parts:
1. The Package + Setup
2. Number of Service Blocks included
What are Site Guard plans?
Once your WordPress website is up and running, it needs to be maintained. The plugins and the core framework are constantly being updated, either to patch a security issue or to improve the functional aspects.
How do I track the progress of my project?
We create a Project Dashboard for every new client.
This is also where you can chat with team members in a collaborative environment and accept or reject the proposed changes that were submitted for your review.
