Web designers in Burnsville are great at design, but typically do not know how to properly build a website because they are not developers. An improperly developed website often needs to be re-built from the ground up.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
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. 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.
Even the simplest PPC landing page takes time to setup. To properly plan, prepare and execute a website generally takes longer than most people realize.
