Web designers in Federal Way 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.
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.
Planning, preparing, and executing a website takes time. Pages geared toward PPC Ads take time to develop correctly as well. Generally people are surprised how long it takes to do it right. An average project takes about three months with some of our smaller projects taking just over a month. Planning ahead and having realistic timelines helps. On average larger web development projects easily go into the six month time frame.
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.
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. A team of individuals with unique skill sets is generally needed for proper website design and development. We have in-house developers with different strengths. We believe the sum of the parts is greater then the whole. This allows us to design and deliver a robust solution to our clients!
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.
Keeping our client's mission first, we make sure branding guidelines and adhered too and looks beautiful across all screen sizes. Each component is checked to guarantee proper coding to minimize page speed and load times.
SEO starts before any code is written or designs developed. From the first meeting we have search engine optimization in mind and plan out proper structure and organization. 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. Build it yourself websites are becoming more popular, but lack what we refer to as 'Technical SEO'. It is important that your website's code is built correctly and is optimized for speed and user experience.
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.
When your project is launched rest assured it will be up-to-date and use the latest in web standards at that moment in time.
