Showcasing Upland your business , your products and your services in the correct way is one of the most important things you can do.
Web designers in Upland 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.
The issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.
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.
We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. Free website builders are made available and often have free hosting as well. These builders typically make their money by putting ads on your website. Generally it is easy for someone without technical knowledge to modify the pre-built templates by adding photos and changing some colors. These pre-built templates work on mobile devices as well. The goal of most website's is to show up on page one of Google, however the lack of flexibility with do-it-yourself website tools makes this very difficult. Page load speed is becoming a more and more significant part of SEO. Choosing what elements are on your page, and how they are loaded has a direct effect your page speed.
Website builders do not allow for you to do this, but a custom built website allows you to control every detail. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. You are renting your website. You do not have access to the source code and cannot move your website. 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. Most projects take around 3 months while smaller ones can be completed in is as little as 6 weeks. 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.
Stay way from Web Designers. A web designer typically does not have the proper skill set to develop and code your website. Generally their area of expertise stops in the graphical design space. 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.
The first step is to define a website's goal. Once this is done we break that down into macro goals for each section of a website and plan with purpose.
The next phase is where our designers work hand in hand with our developers to make sure every feature will perform as intended on your website. This is known and the design and development phase.
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.
Search engine optimization starts in the first meeting, long before code is written or designs laid out. The first steps of SEO start with proper organization and structure. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s structure. The third and most important piece of the puzzle is what we call “Technical 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.
Large scale effects can be felt from lack of adherence to the most basic of website design principles. As simple as it seems the defining factor in your online presence can be the design and coding principles used on your website. Your project should only be entrusted to a team that has multiple skill sets including design and development.
There is no shortage of solutions for a given project. WordPress is very popular but it must be deployed by a developer who understands the ins and outs in order to work correctly.
