Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Davie town rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
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.
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. 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.
It is essential that have at least one meeting with the developer or account executive before starting a web project. The larger the project the more meetings that will be required. This is built into the overall cost of the project. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
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.

A successful website starts with proper research, planning and execution. You need to have a clear goal for your project. We work with our clients to narrow down the goal of each section of a web site.
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.
Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. Every article or page on a website should have a specific purpose. We help our clients with content development and make sure that content flows naturally within your website.

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.
