We often get questions about our services and common questions about web design.
Here are just a few that we will answer here:
How much does a website cost?
Great question, Each website is created specifically for the client. We don’t have set prices because we don’t know what you need yet. Our number one goal is to create a website that will help your business. Our prices start from $500 and up. Our prices are quite reasonable for several reasons;
- We don’t outsource, all work is done in house- no need to pay a separate developer
- We do not have a physical location. Why? There is nothing to see in web design. We don’t want to pass along an inflated price to the customer just to have a bricks and mortar location. We gladly set up online meetings or in person meetings.
- Experience- we have created well over 500 websites and we know what we are doing.
Can I expand my website later?
Absolutely, and we encourage it. We develop in WordPress and you can create a small one page landing page to many hundreds of pages and posts. We also encourage a new business to purchase a website based on what they can afford. Don’t get SOLD a site over your budget. It is quite easy to create a website in phases (stages).
Why can’t I do it myself?
In this day and age you certainly can create your own website. There are great builder sites like Wix, Weebly, Square etc. What we do here is use your extensive experience in SEO, design and development to create a unique website that reflects your business, gets it done professionally and properly with a unique url and hosting space to better index your site. The free bees and builder sites just are not the same as a professionally built site. It is like comparing chocolate cake to mud. They could look similar but are not.
I want to use my old host, can I?
Yes, if it is technically compatible with WordPress and allows us to manage your php and resources like; max input time, memory limit, max execution time, post max size …etc.May people want to use old hosting for a new site but if the server is old and does not meet the minimum requirements for our theme, we do not recommend it. If the web hosting is very inexpensive, there is usually a reason and can yield subpar results. Now more than ever, your site needs to be fast.
Do I Need Web Maintenance?
Any WordPress website needs web maintenance on a regular basis. Quite often the WordPress core, theme or plugins need to be updated biweekly. Why so often? WordPress developers are very proactive, if a security vulnerability is detected or a new functionality is required, it comes out as an update. Generally, if we build your website and you ask us to change something on the site, we will back up and update the site at the same time. Usually this should take under 15 minutes. We can teach clients how to update (it is really easy) so they don’t need to pay the maintenance fee.
My website is finished now what?
It can take up to 4 weeks for Google to index your website if it is a new one. We can request a faster indexing. Please remember to add your website url to your social media and directories. Definitely make sure it is correct at Google My Business .
