Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Colorado Springs.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.
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.
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. 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. A successful project outcome dictates that should expect one ore more meetings remotely or in person.
