Frequently Asked Web Design Questions
How much does a website cost?
All of our quotes are per website so it depends on how many pages you need, your search engine optimization needs, if your website requires e-commerce (shopping cart), and if you need any other content created by us. Contact us for a free estimate!
How long will it take for my website to be completed?
The time frame of completing a website varies depending upon the size of the website, the volume of content your website will have, and our current work load. A small website can be finished in a matter of days as long as we have all of your content. Waiting for content from our clients is usually the biggest hold up in finishing websites.
When is payment due?
We require half of the quoted price up front to secure a spot in our work queue. The remainder is due when your website is finished and ready to be uploaded to your server.
How do I update my website?
If you are in need of a simple update and are a client, the cost of updating is very minimal or sometimes nothing at all. We can also provide training with content management if needed. Contact us when you are ready to update.
What about social media?
We can set up Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, and any other social networks you are interested in and direct you on how to effectively use them for your online marketing strategies. We can also maintain your social media campaigns if that is something you are in need of. Contact us today about how we can help with your social media efforts.
Is there a way to see how many visitors I get on my website?
Yes, you can even download an app to your smartphone to keep track of your website activity on the go!
Do we have to have a face to face meeting?
We operate from a small home office so usually it's more effective to communicate over the phone and through email.
What format should my content be?
Usually just copying and pasting your text content into an email works just fine. Pictures are best in .jpg or .png format. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Do you provide file backup?
When your website is complete we can burn all of your files on a disc and send you a copy per your request.
Do you redesign existing websites?
Yes we do but it is usually more cost effective to rebuild your website from the ground up. Contact us to discuss all the options of redesigning your website.
Do you only do website design?
No, in addition to website design we offer search engine optimization, online marketing, and local marketing. Contact us to discuss everything we offer.
