ChapterWeb requires a one-time license fee of $1,000.00 and an annual hosting, maintenance and support fee of $1,188 ($99 per month). The one-time licensing fee allows our team to create your site including all of the dynamic member and administrator tools, issue a login account to your website administrator, and schedule an initial phone training session with your website administrator to go through each module with one of our technicians to ensure you get started on the right foot. The initial phone training typically lasts 1-2 hours depending on your website administrator’s knowledge of computers and basic Internet usage. The annual subscription fee covers web site hosting, unlimited updates/upgrades, and personal over-the-phone support. Be sure to ask us about our flexible payment options and our Referral Incentive program which can help greatly reduce your annual fees.
