Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Flagstaff.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense. It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. A detailed cost benefit analysis is presented to you so you can make an informed decision on what is best for you and your company.
The short answer is longer than you think. It takes time to plan, prepare and execute. Even single landing page for a PPC ad campaign takes time to design and develop properly. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
An account executive should meet with you prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding followed by several meetings during the life cycle depending on the size and scope of the project. A successful project outcome dictates that should expect one ore more meetings remotely or in person.
Stay way from Web Designers. A web designer typically does not have the proper skill set to develop and code your website. Generally their area of expertise stops in the graphical design space. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. We have in-house developers with different strengths. We believe the sum of the parts is greater then the whole. This allows us to design and deliver a robust solution to our clients!
The first step is to define a website's goal. Once this is done we break that down into macro goals for each section of a website and plan with purpose.
The next phase is where our designers work hand in hand with our developers to make sure every feature will perform as intended on your website. This is known and the design and development phase.
Every section and component on your website is checked to make sure they are properly coded. We make sure everything works on all screen sizes, has minimum load times and meets your branding guidelines.
People often ask when should I start SEO? The SEO process starts before a single line of code is written. Successful search engine optimization starts in the planning phase of a website and is defined by the goals of the project. Every article or page on a website should have a specific purpose. We help our clients with content development and make sure that content flows naturally within your website. Build it yourself websites are becoming more popular, but lack what we refer to as 'Technical SEO'. It is important that your website's code is built correctly and is optimized for speed and user experience.
Websites are not meant to be static and never change. They should continually receive updates and support. We welcome the opportunity to be your partner and provide the support your site requires to maintain your online presence.
The projects we launch utilize the latest web standards at that time. We make sure your project is up-to-date upon delivery.
