Your Albany products, services and business need to be showcased in the best way possible.
Web designers in Albany 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.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
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.
We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. 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. Most of the pre-built templates from these sources allow you to change a color or add a photo in addition they are optimized for mobile devices. If, however, you need a larger site or if you want to use your site as the basis of an SEO project you would do better building a site that you have full control of. The speed at which your website loads is a critical part of SEO. You need to be able to pick and choose which elements are loaded and how they are developed.
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. You are renting your website. You do not have access to the source code and cannot move your website. 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. Most projects take around 3 months while smaller ones can be completed in is as little as 6 weeks. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.

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!

Successful search engine optimization starts in the planning phase of a website and is defined by the goals of the project. Content development is something we help our clients with on an on-going basis. We make sure each article or page produced is high quality and flows with the websites structure.
