It is vitally important that you showcase your Santa Monica business, products and services in the best light.
Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Santa Monica.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
Trying to repair an existing website can often cost more than simply building one correctly from the ground up. 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.
We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. There is no shortage of freely available drag and drop website builders. Most of the free solutions monetize their products by placing ads on your website. They are often optimized for mobile delivery and the pre-built templates allow simple modifications such as changing colors and adding photos. If, however, you need a larger site or if you want to use your site as the basis of an SEO project you would do better building a site that you have full control of. Determining what elements are on your page and how they are loaded is vitally important. How fast your website loads is quickly becoming one of the more Significant parts of SEO.
Do-it-yourself website builders do not give you the control you need. Only a custom built website by a professional web developer can achieve the right results. Most website builders that do not run ads require a monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website goes away. In essence you are renting your website and have no way of moving your site to another hosting company. Custom built solutions do not allow you to own your site. You have the freedom to choose your web development company and move to any hosting company you like.
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. 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.
You should plan on having several meetings with the team working on your project or account executive prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
Don’t Just Hire A Web Designer. Web designers are great at graphical content but generally lack the necessary skills to properly develop and code a website. Multiple team members with different sets of skills are required to design and develop a website properly. The products we deliver are built to win because we leverage unique strengths from our team members.

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.
Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s structure. 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.
Basic website design principles have dramatic effects in the success of your project. The web design process can be the factor that determines if your site succeeds or not. To give your project the best chance for success, it is important that you choose a team that has a variety of skill sets.
