A Web designer in Battle Creek 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. 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. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
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. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. The products we deliver are built to win because we leverage unique strengths from our team members.
Each section of a website should be carefully researched, planned and then executed to deliver on a clear goal. We work with your clients to zero in on the goal for each section.
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.
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.
Search engine optimization starts in the first meeting, long before code is written or designs laid out. The first steps of SEO start with proper organization and structure. High quality produced and curated content flowing throughout our clients website is something with deliver for our clients. 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.
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.
