Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Folsom rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.

Even the simplest PPC landing page takes time to setup. To properly plan, prepare and execute a website generally takes longer than most people realize. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. 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.
It is essential that have at least one meeting with the developer or account executive before starting a web project. The larger the project the more meetings that will be required. This is built into the overall cost 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. Multiple team members with different sets of skills are required to design and develop a website properly. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
