A Web designer in Decatur who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
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. 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. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Larger scale web development projects can run six months on the low end. It is critical to allow plenty of time and plan ahead.
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. Meetings are essential for a successful project outcome and can be accomplished in person or remotely.
Don’t Just Hire A Web Designer. Web designers are great at graphical content but generally lack the necessary skills to properly develop and code a 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. We have in-house developers with different strengths. We believe the sum of the parts is greater then the whole. This allows us to design and deliver a robust solution to our clients!
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 step is design. Our designers work hand in hand with our developers and we make sure each section of your website is built correctly.
Every section and component on your website is checked to make sure they are properly coded. We make sure everything works on all screen sizes, has minimum load times and meets your branding guidelines.
Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s 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.
A lot of small business choose WordPress. While this works for some there are many more options available. It is important to identify your goals and then work with a developer who can help choose the technology best suited to meet those goals. Some projects require a custom database driven application. We have the experience and knowledge to do everything in house. Because we understand have experience in multiple technologies, we don't try to sell a client on a one size fits all solution. We partner with our clients and suggest the best solution to meet your unique needs.
All websites should receive some form of on-going updates and support. We would love to be your partner going forward and provide the on-going support required to maintain your online presence.
The projects we launch utilize the latest web standards at that time. We make sure your project is up-to-date upon delivery.
