Your Vancouver products, services and business need to be showcased in the best way possible.
Often times a website that was built by a web designer in Vancouver rather than a developer has shortcomings that just 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. 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.
We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. There are many website builders out there that allow you to create smaller website (just a few pages) and host it for a monthly fee. Many of these solutions allow for some modification such as images and colors. They typically work okay on mobile screen sizes as well. However, if the goal of your website is to rank in search engines and you have a larger project that is expected to drive business you are going to need to have full control over your site. Determining what elements are on your page and how they are loaded is vitally important. How fast your website loads is quickly becoming one of the more Significant parts of SEO.
A custom-built website gives you control over these factors, but a website-builder does not. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. Custom built solutions do not allow you to own your site. You have the freedom to choose your web development company and move to any hosting company you like.
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. Small business websites usually run in the 2 to 3 month range. Smaller sites can be done in about half that time frame. 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. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
