Web designers in Davis are great at design, but typically do not know how to properly build a website because they are not developers. An improperly developed website often needs to be re-built from the ground up.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
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. 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. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Midsize to large web development projects usually take 6 months or longer. The important take away is to set aside a realistic amount of time for the completion of your project.
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.
Avoid Web Designers. Web designers can be great at graphical content but more often than not do not have the necessary skills to properly build a website. It takes a village! As a general rule it takes more than one person to develop a website. It often takes a team of people with different expertise. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
A successful website starts with proper research, planning and execution. You need to have a clear goal for your project. We work with our clients to narrow down the goal of each section of a web site.

Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO.

Our team makes sure the code developed and deployed adheres to best practices such as W3C guidelines and usability guidelines including responsiveness for different screen sizes.
