Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Irving 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. 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.
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. Smaller projects generally take 6-8 weeks to complete while average projects generally take around 3 months. 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.
It is essential that have at least one meeting with the developer or account executive before starting a web project. The larger the project the more meetings that will be required. This is built into the overall cost of the project. Your meetings can be remote or in person, but the are required for a successful outcome.

Our team makes sure the code developed and deployed adheres to best practices such as W3C guidelines and usability guidelines including responsiveness for different screen sizes.
