Web designers in Philadelphia 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.
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. To help you make an informed decision we analyze your current website and present you with a cost benefit analysis.
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. Midsize to large web development projects usually take 6 months or longer. The important take away is to set aside a realistic amount of time for the completion of your project.
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. Larger projects will see several meetings during development time frame. Meetings are essential for a successful project outcome and can be accomplished in person or remotely.
