A Web designer in Boulder who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
Most of the time we find it is more cost effective to build a new site from the ground up versus trying to repair an existing one. A detailed cost benefit analysis is presented to you so you can make an informed decision on what is best for you and your company.
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. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. 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.
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. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
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. It takes a village!

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. 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. 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.
