Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Erie.
Slow page loading times and compatibility issues are the top issues we run into.
Most of the time we find it is more cost effective to build a new site from the ground up versus trying to repair an existing one. To help you make an informed decision we analyze your current website and present you with a cost benefit analysis.
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. Larger web development projects can easily span into a 6 month range or more. The important thing to keep in mind is to allow plenty of time.
An account executive should meet with you prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding followed by several meetings during the life cycle depending on the size and scope of the project. A successful project outcome dictates that should expect one ore more meetings remotely or in person.
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. To build for success we tap into individual strengths for the products we deliver.
Clear goals for your project are essential. We help our clients narrow down the goal for section of their website through proper research, planning and execution.
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. 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.
The projects we launch utilize the latest web standards at that time. We make sure your project is up-to-date upon delivery.
