It is vitally important that you showcase your Lorain business, products and services in the best light.
Web designers in Lorain 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.
Trying to repair an existing website can often cost more than simply building one correctly from the ground up. 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.
We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. Free website builders are made available and often have free hosting as well. These builders typically make their money by putting 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. However, if the goal of your website is to rank in search engines and you have a larger project that is expected to drive business you are going to need to have full control over your site. Determining what elements are on your page and how they are loaded is vitally important. How fast your website loads is quickly becoming one of the more Significant parts of SEO.
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. In essence you are renting your website and have no way of moving your site to another hosting company. A custom-built website is different. You own the site and can choose to host it wherever you want and work with the web development company of your choosing.
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. 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.
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.
Avoid Web Designers. Web designers can be great at graphical content but more often than not do not have the necessary skills to properly build a website. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. We have in-house developers with different strengths. We believe the sum of the parts is greater then the whole. This allows us to design and deliver a robust solution to our clients!
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.
With clear goals laid out we move into design and development. In this phase our developers and designers work side by side to ensure each feature on your website is built to work and perform as intended.
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. One of the most important pieces and is 'Technical SEO'. Code that is developed and deployed needs to meet W3C guidelines. We ensure every piece of code developed works as intended and looks great on all devices.
Large scale effects can be felt from lack of adherence to the most basic of website design principles. As simple as it seems the defining factor in your online presence can be the design and coding principles used on your website. It is vitally important that you choose a team that understands and has the variety of skill sets needed to make your project succeed.
