Mini-FAQ
~ Frequently Asked Questions ~
What is a Major Update?
A major update is a change to your existing page consisting of adding a new cover graphic, new text (blurb, quotes, reviews, etc.), and any other information and/or graphics that feature the release of the new book.
Will my Page be Registered with Online Search Engines?
Yes. Each author page is registered with a minimum of 500 online search engines including Yahoo, Infoseek, Lycos — all of the larger search engines as well as with many smaller but excellent search engines. There is no additional charge for this service.
While Browsing through the Eclectics Site, I Noticed Banners for Eclectics Authors Featured on Eclectics Writing Pages. Do I get a Banner and, if so, Do I have to Pay Extra for It?*
Each Eclectics Author is provided with a unique banner which runs on a continuing, rotating basis on all writing-exclusive areas of the Eclectics Site ( banners do not appear on Eclectics Author pages). The purpose of these banners is to encourage viewers who visit Eclectics exclusively for the writing-oriented information to stop by some Eclectics Author pages while they are visiting the site. Banners are one of the unadvertised "perks" offered to Eclectics Authors just for being an Eclectics Author*. There is not and never will be a charge for banners or any other "perk"; they are provided free of charge as a way of enticing more viewers to visit Eclectics Author pages. *Do-it-yourself or "hosted only" clients may opt in to a promotional perks package for a nominal fee. See Other Services.
What are Postcards and Do I have to Pay Extra for this feature?
Every time an Eclectics Author requests an update for a new book, the new cover is uploaded to the Postcard page and is made available to anyone who wishes to send a postcard. The postcard service can be used by the Eclectics Author to announce the release of the new book or by readers to share news of a great book with their friends. Like the banners, postcards are part of the unadvertised "perks" offered to Eclectics Authors just for being an Eclectics Author. There is not and never will be a charge for these postcards or any other "perk"; all are provided free of charge as a way of enticing more viewers to visit Eclectics Author pages.
Are there any "Extra" charges I need to be aware of?
The prices outlined above for Original Site Setup, Major Updates, and Page Overhauls all include minor additions (review, quote, link, or contest) and/or corrections, as required, at no extra charge for a period of one year following page launch or paid update.

Authors who have not requested a paid site update or overhaul within the 12 months preceding a request for minor update or contest setup, will be asked to pay a $25 maintenance fee. (Note: This is not an across-the-board maintenance fee. If your site does not require updating and you have no need for minor update additions or contest setup, then no maintenance fee will ever be charged, no matter how long the period between updates.)

There is only one other instance where an extra fee of $25 would be applicable, and that is if minor changes are requested in excess. By "in excess" we mean requests for minor changes several times a week for a prolonged period of time. (NOTE: To date, there has been no need for this extra fee to be charged to an Eclectics Author, but we reserve the right to get paid for our work.)

Eclectics InterNetWorks Policy:
We do not believe in over-charging our clients, charging for work we do not do, or in nickel-and-diming our clients to death. Unlike many other Web Design Services, all of our prices are stated up front in an easy-to-understand manner — at no time are any "hidden charges" sprung on clients.

Professional and/or Character References:
If you are considering hiring Eclectics to design and/or host your site or page and would feel more comfortable having either a personal or professional reference, we encourage you to contact any of our current clients. A list of Eclectics Authors can be found on the Eclectics Authors Page. URLs and contact email address for business sites Eclectics has designed and housed will be furnished upon request.

Please feel free to inquire of present clients as to why they made the decision to have their pages designed by Eclectics, as well as whether or not they are happy with the service received!
