Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Compton rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.
Keeping time and cost in mind, a lot of the time we find it more beneficial to build and deploy a new website instead of trying to repair the one you already have. To help you make an informed decision we analyze your current website and present you with a cost benefit analysis.
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. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Larger web development projects can easily span into a 6 month range or more. The important thing to keep in mind is to allow plenty of time.
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. Meetings are essential for a successful project outcome and can be accomplished in person or remotely.
You don't want a web designer. They are great at graphical layout but as a general rule they do not have the technical skills required to properly build your website. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
