Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Syracuse rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.
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. A detailed cost benefit analysis is presented to you so you can make an informed decision on what is best for you and your company.
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. 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.
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.
You don't want a web designer. They are great at graphical layout but as a general rule they do not have the technical skills required to properly build your website. It takes a village! As a general rule it takes more than one person to develop a website. It often takes a team of people with different expertise. By leveraging individual strengths we deliver a product that is built for success.
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.
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 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.
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. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s structure. 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.
All websites should receive some form of on-going updates and support. We would love to be your partner going forward and provide the on-going support required to maintain your online presence.
Our products have all of the latest web technology at the time they are built. We partner with our clients to help keep those sites updated over time.
