A Web designer in DeSoto who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
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. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. 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.
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. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
Stay way from Web Designers. A web designer typically does not have the proper skill set to develop and code your website. Generally their area of expertise stops in the graphical design space. A team of individuals with unique skill sets is generally needed for proper website design and development. The products we deliver are built to win because we leverage unique strengths from our team members.
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.
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 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.
Search engine optimization starts in the first meeting, long before code is written or designs laid out. The first steps of SEO start with proper organization and structure. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s structure. 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.
