Showcasing Battle Creek your business , your products and your services in the correct way is one of the most important things you can do.
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.
We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. There is no shortage of freely available drag and drop website builders. Most of the free solutions monetize their products by placing ads on your website. Generally it is easy for someone without technical knowledge to modify the pre-built templates by adding photos and changing some colors. These pre-built templates work on mobile devices as well. 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. You should also remember that once you sign-up to a website-builder, you are locked into their monthly payment for as long as you want the site to appear on the internet. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. Being able to actually own your site, move it to any hosting company you choose and being able to pick your own web development company are just some of the ways custom built are more advantageous.
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.
