It is imperative that your Albany services and products are showcased in the correct way. This is one of the most important things your website does!
A Web designer in Albany who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
The issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.
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. To help you make an informed decision we analyze your current website and present you with a cost benefit analysis.
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. If SEO is important to you and you expect to show up on the first page of google and attract new leads, having full control over your site is a must. Page load speed is becoming a more and more significant part of SEO. Choosing what elements are on your page, and how they are loaded has a direct effect your page speed.
Website builders do not allow for you to do this, but a custom built website allows you to control every detail. Most website builders that do not run ads require a monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website goes away. 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. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
You should plan on having several meetings with the team working on your project or account executive prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding. Meetings are essential for a successful project outcome and can be accomplished in person or remotely.
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. 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 phase is where our designers work hand in hand with our developers to make sure every feature will perform as intended on your website. This is known and the design and development phase.
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.
Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. 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. 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.
There are best practices when it comes to website design. Items that seem simple, such as the placement of a call to action, can be the determining factor for success. To give your project the best chance for success, it is important that you choose a team that has a variety of skill sets.
A lot of small business choose WordPress. While this works for some there are many more options available.
