Frequetnly Asked Qutesitons

Find answers to some of the most frequently asked digital marketing questions.

Does my website include SEO?

We provide SEO as an optional service. You can select a one-time service where we optimize your entire website for SEO, or monthly SEO services where we work on your SEO every month. Talk with an Advisor if you have questions about website SEO.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How long will it take to see SEO results?

SEO is a long term strategy. While you may start to see some results in 60 to 90 days, it often takes 6 to 12 months to see the full potential of your SEO investment.
