Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Hillsboro rather than a developer has shortcomings that just cannot be fixed.
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. It is important that you understand the costs, timelines and the pros and cons of sticking with your current website or building a new one. We present each client with a detailed analysis to help them make the choice that best matches their goals and budget.
Even the simplest PPC landing page takes time to setup. To properly plan, prepare and execute a website generally takes longer than most people realize.

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.
