Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Fresno rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
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. It is important that you understand the costs, timelines and the pros and cons of sticking with your current website or building a new one. We present each client with a detailed analysis to help them make the choice that best matches their goals and budget.
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. Smaller projects generally take 6-8 weeks to complete while average projects generally take around 3 months. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
The size and scope of the project will help dictate how many meetings you will have with your account executive or the team working on your site. Larger projects will see several meetings during development time frame. Your meetings can be remote or in person, but the are required for a successful outcome.
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. 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.
Each section of a website should be carefully researched, planned and then executed to deliver on a clear goal. We work with your clients to zero in on the goal for each section.
The next step is design. Our designers work hand in hand with our developers and we make sure each section of your website is built correctly.
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. Content development is something we help our clients with on an on-going basis. We make sure each article or page produced is high quality and flows with the websites structure. One of the most important pieces and is 'Technical SEO'. Code that is developed and deployed needs to meet W3C guidelines. We ensure every piece of code developed works as intended and looks great on all devices.
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.
When your project is launched rest assured it will be up-to-date and use the latest in web standards at that moment in time.
