Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Walnut Creek.
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. 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.
Planning, preparing, and executing a website takes time. Pages geared toward PPC Ads take time to develop correctly as well. Generally people are surprised how long it takes to do it right. 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.
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. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
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. We have in-house developers with different strengths. We believe the sum of the parts is greater then the whole. This allows us to design and deliver a robust solution to our clients!
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.
We keep the goal front and center. Each section of our clients websites is checked and re-checked. We look at things such as how fast it loads, branding guidelines, proper display on various screen sizes and more.
SEO starts before any code is written or designs developed. From the first meeting we have search engine optimization in mind and plan out proper structure and organization. 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. With the major search engines cracking down on auto generated or do it yourself drag and drop websites 'Technical SEO' is more important than even. Every piece of code written needs to be optimized for speed and usability across 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.
Latest web standards are vitally important. Every project we launch is developed to the latest coding techniques and best practices.
