Web designers in Daytona Beach 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 first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense. It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. 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.
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.
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. A successful project outcome dictates that should expect one ore more meetings remotely or in person.
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! As a general rule it takes more than one person to develop a website. It often takes a team of people with different expertise. 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.
With clear goals laid out we move into design and development. In this phase our developers and designers work side by side to ensure each feature on your website is built to work and perform as intended.
Keeping our client's mission first, we make sure branding guidelines and adhered too and looks beautiful across all screen sizes. Each component is checked to guarantee proper coding to minimize page speed and load times.
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.
When your project is launched rest assured it will be up-to-date and use the latest in web standards at that moment in time.
