What platform do you build your websites on?
All of our sites are custom built using the WordPress platform, which is an easy-to-manage, SEO-friendly, secure, open-source CMS. It has the functionality and capability to handle any type of website. We develop WordPress themes using the Divi framework. Basically it’s how we can guarantee clients that their websites are going to last and continue to function properly as WordPress grows and changes.
Will my site be mobile friendly?
Yes! In today’s world, it is imperative your website can adapt and flow to any size monitor. It’s been reported that no matter what industry you are in, at least 30% of your web traffic is coming from smart phones and tables. That’s a large piece of the pie, so it is very important your site has a great user experience on all platforms.
How long does it take to build a website?
Our standard website can take as little as 10 days but on average, from start to finish it can take approximately 120 days to create. For our E-commerce (online store) websites, as a rule of thumb, you can anticipate an additional 20 to 60 days to develop.
Will I be able to make site changes on my own?
Yes! Yes! And yes! WordPress is an extremely easy to use system and you will have the full ability to update your content as much as you’d like, without needing any knowledge of web coding. We will provide you with a customized video detailing step-by-step how to make your site updates. Revisions outside the scope of the content may require additional fees.
Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?
Unfortunately, we do not. Because every developer has their own unique way of coding, and as multiple programmers touch the same code, your original site structure will begin to unravel so we can only offer revisions on sites that we’ve originally developed.
Can you help me write content for my website?
Well yes, we can! We can include full blown copy writing or just editing in your proposal based on your needs.
Can you help me source photos for my website?
Yes! We can assist you in how to track down your images, or even help you to source stock photos from sites such as www.istock.com or www.shutterstock.com. Or we also have photographers and videographers available to produce custom photography and videos for your website too.
Is content entry for my site included?
We establish each section of your site to ensure the layout and functionality of your site. If by chance, your copy and/or images are not ready by the time we are coding and programming, we use dummy text and sample images/color block as a placeholder so you can easily switch it out with your own content when you’re ready. If you’d like us to input more content throughout your site like populate additional galleries, flow several blogs, etc, we are happy to offer these services for an additional fee.
Do I own my website?
Yes, you sure do! Usually, our clients stay with us for the duration of their site but if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go
Do you have any hosting recommendations?
We absolutely do! In fact, who you host your site with is a key factor on how successful and operational your WordPress site will be. For us to build a successfully functional WordPress site, there are several great hosting companies we recommend, and several hosting companies we absolutely steer away from. To name a few of our favorites, these are SiteGround, SiteGator, and GoDaddy.
