Website design frequently asked questions

Find answers to some of the most frequently asked website design questions

Are the websites you design optimized for mobile devices?

Yes - every website we develop is optimized for mobile devices using mobile responsive design. Mobile responsive design will adapt the layout of the site and the page content based on the device a visitor is using, providing them with a great user experience.

Are the websites you design optimized for search engines?

Yes - a website with out any visitors isn't of much use to anyone. That's why we optimize every website we design and build for search engines such as Google. Your new website will have a solid SEO foundation from which you can build upon.

Can I use a web hosting service other than the one you provide?

Yes it is possible to host your site elsewhere, provided your site does not utilize dynamic content pages (database driven content). If you wish to host your site elsewhere, we will provide you with all site files. Please note that we do not provide setup, implementation or support for sites hosted on third-party platforms. You will be responsible for publishing, testing, and any required coding to ensure your site works on your chosen web host.

Can you register or setup my domain name?

Yes, we'd be happy to register a domain name on your behalf and configure it to work with your website and branded email. If you already have a domain name registered through a different registrar, we'll support you in making the necessary updates, but encourage you to contact your domain registrar for specific setup instructions.

Do you build e-commerce websites?

No. We specialize in helping service-based businesses. While we have no problem helping clients with a few product SKU's, if you require a full e-commerce site with dozens or hundreds of products your best bet is to retain the services of an agency that specializes in e-commerce websites.

Do you provide a monthly marketing report?

Yes. As part of our lead tracking and reporting service, you'l receive a monthly report showing you how many leads you've generated and where they've come from. To learn more about our reporting services talk with an Advisor.

Does my website include SEO?

How do I know if my marketing is working?

How long will it take to complete my site?

Smaller websites can be completed in as little at two weeks. Most websites are completed within 30 to 60 days.

How much does a website cost?

To understand the cost of a website, you need to understand the various trades and skills required. A website designer will design the overall look of your website. To make your website actually work, you'll need the skills of a developer to translate your website design into code. If you want your website optimized for search engines, you'll need the skills of an SEO specialist. If you want professional content you'll need the skills of a copywriter. As you can see there are a lot of skills required to create a website that provides value to your organization. You should expect to pay approximately $3,000 on the low end for a very basic site with only a few pages. If you require dozens of web pages and custom functionality your website can cost tens of thousands of dollars. As a guideline, you should budget between $500 to $1,000 per web page for a website that includes design, development, copywriting, and search engine optimization. It might seem like a lot to spend $10,000 or $25,000 on a website, but is it really a lot if it helps you generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue every year.

What are dynamic web pages?

Dynamic web pages are a way of organizing and dynamically serving content on your website using a database. A common example of a dynamic web page is a Blog. A Blog is comprised of multiple posts, which is a specific type of content that can be organized in a database. Dynamic content pages enable you to scale your website to hundreds or thousands of pages very quickly.

What do you mean you only desing websites for services businesses?

Websites can be broadly grouped into three categories - 1. Marketing websites designed to generate leads, 2. Publishing websites designed to generate revenue through the monetization of content, and 3. E-commerce websites designed to transact sales online. The way you desing and market each type of website is different. We're experts at designing marketing websites that generate leads for service businesses.

What is the difference between a static web page and a dynamic web page?

The content on a static web page doesn't change, whereas the content on a dynamic web page can. Static web pages have their content hard coded into the page. Dynamic web pages pull their content from a database. Common uses of dynamic web pages are blogs and portfolios. For example, each blog post has the same design, but the content changes for each post. If you're not sure if you should use static or dynamic web pages just Ask an Advisor.
