It is vitally important that you showcase your Iowa City business, products and services in the best light.
A Web designer in Iowa City who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
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.
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. We will take the time to analyze your current website and give you a detailed cost benefit analysis so you can make an informed decision.
We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. You can create a website and host it for free with some website builders on the market today. Most of the pre-built templates from these sources allow you to change a color or add a photo in addition they are optimized for mobile devices. If SEO is important to you and you expect to show up on the first page of google and attract new leads, having full control over your site is a must. Page load speed is becoming a more and more significant part of SEO. Choosing what elements are on your page, and how they are loaded has a direct effect your page speed.
The website builders on the marketing simply do not give you the total control you need. You need a professional web developer who has complete access to your custom built site to achieve success. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. A professionally built website by an expert web development company gives you the control you need. You are not tied to a particular web host and you can move your website to any provider you choose.
It takes longer than people generally realize to build a website. There is planning, preparation and execution. The quickest build is a landing page for PPC AD Campaigns, even the simplest of landing pages still takes time. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Larger web development projects can easily span into a 6 month range or more. The important thing to keep in mind is to allow plenty of time.
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. A successful project outcome dictates that should expect one ore more meetings remotely or in person.
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. Multiple team members with different sets of skills are required to design and develop a website properly. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
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.

We assess each component and make sure it is properly coded to minimize page load times, work beautifully across all screen sizes and adheres to our clients branding guidelines.
People often ask when should I start SEO? The SEO process starts before a single line of code is written. Successful search engine optimization starts in the planning phase of a website and is defined by the goals of the project. 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.
