Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Portland.
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. 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. There are many website builders out there that allow you to create smaller website (just a few pages) and host it for a monthly fee. They are often optimized for mobile delivery and the pre-built templates allow simple modifications such as changing colors and adding photos. However, if the goal of your website is to rank in search engines and you have a larger project that is expected to drive business you are going to need to have full control over your site. The speed at which your website loads is a critical part of SEO. You need to be able to pick and choose which elements are loaded and how they are developed.
A custom-built website gives you control over these factors, but a website-builder does not. 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 custom-built website is different. You own the site and can choose to host it wherever you want and work with the web development company of your choosing.
Planning, preparing, and executing a website takes time. Pages geared toward PPC Ads take time to develop correctly as well. Generally people are surprised how long it takes to do it right. Most projects take around 3 months while smaller ones can be completed in is as little as 6 weeks. Larger scale web development projects can run six months on the low end. It is critical to allow plenty of time and plan ahead.
You should plan on having several meetings with the team working on your project or account executive prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.

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. 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. Build it yourself websites are becoming more popular, but lack what we refer to as 'Technical SEO'.
