Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Greenville rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
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.
It takes longer than people generally realize to build a website. There is planning, preparation and execution. The quickest build is a landing page for PPC AD Campaigns, even the simplest of landing pages still takes time. Smaller projects generally take 6-8 weeks to complete while average projects generally take around 3 months. Larger scale web development projects can run six months on the low end. It is critical to allow plenty of time and plan ahead.
The size and scope of the project will help dictate how many meetings you will have with your account executive or the team working on your site. Larger projects will see several meetings during development time frame. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
Stay way from Web Designers. A web designer typically does not have the proper skill set to develop and code your website. Generally their area of expertise stops in the graphical design space. A team of individuals with unique skill sets is generally needed for proper website design and development. By leveraging individual strengths we deliver a product that is built for success.
The first step is to define a website's goal. Once this is done we break that down into macro goals for each section of a website and plan with purpose.
Once we identify the goals we move on to the design and development phase. During this time our designers work with our developers to ensure every feature on your website is built to perform.
We assess each component and make sure it is properly coded to minimize page load times, work beautifully across all screen sizes and adheres to our clients branding guidelines.
SEO starts before any code is written or designs developed. From the first meeting we have search engine optimization in mind and plan out proper structure and organization. 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. With the major search engines cracking down on auto generated or do it yourself drag and drop websites 'Technical SEO' is more important than even. Every piece of code written needs to be optimized for speed and usability across all devices.
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. Working hand in hand with our clients is important. It helps us identify the specific needs of each individual project. Because we are truly experts in our field it allows us to present the best solution based on the needs of our clients.
Your online presence is important and does require on-going updates and support. We would love to provide the support you need for your website.
The projects we launch utilize the latest web standards at that time. We make sure your project is up-to-date upon delivery.
