It is vitally important that you showcase your Grand Island business, products and services in the best light.
Web designers in Grand Island 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 issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense. It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. 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.
This is a question we are asked by our clients and for some businesses a build-it-yourself website is the right move. For others it is most definitely not. 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. Many of these solutions allow for some modification such as images and colors. They typically work okay on mobile screen sizes as well. The goal of most website's is to show up on page one of Google, however the lack of flexibility with do-it-yourself website tools makes this very difficult. How fast your website loads and displays is important. Having total control of where elements are locasted is essential for SEO.
The website builders on the marketing simply do not give you the total control you need. You need a professional web developer who has complete access to your custom built site to achieve success. Keep in mind that by using a web-site builder you are locked in to their system. You are locked into a monthly fee. If you stop paying you will lose your site. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. Custom built solutions do not allow you to own your site. You have the freedom to choose your web development company and move to any hosting company you like.
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. Midsize to large web development projects usually take 6 months or longer. The important take away is to set aside a realistic amount of time for the completion of your project.
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. Your meetings can be remote or in person, but the are required for a successful outcome.
