Often times a website that was built by a web designer 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.
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. We will take the time to analyze your current website and give you a detailed cost benefit analysis so you can make an informed decision.
The short answer is longer than you think. It takes time to plan, prepare and execute. Even Landing pages for PPC AD Campgains need some lead time. Smaller projects that are not rushed generally take 6-8 weeks to complete while average projects generally take around 3 months. Larger projects can easily span into a 6 month range or more. The important thing to keep in mind is to allow plenty of time.
You should plan on having several meetings with the team working on your project or account executive prior to the start of any graphic concepts or coding. These meetings can be in person or remote but they are essential for your project to be successful.
Don’t Just Hire A Web Designer. Web designers are great at graphical content but generally lack the necessary skills to properly develop and code a website. Proper website design and development requires a team of individuals with different skill sets. By leveraging individual strengths we deliver a product that is built for success.
A successful website starts with proper research, planning and execution. You need to have a clear goal for your project. We work with our clients to narrow down the goal of each section of a web site.
Once we identify the goals we move on to the design and development phase. During this time our designers work with our developers to ensure every feature on your website is built to perform.
We weigh 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.
Proper search engine optimization should start from the very first meeting. Proper structure and organization is generally the first step in SEO. We work with our clients on content development and produce high quality curated content that flows with your website’s structure. The third and most important piece of the puzzle is what we call “Technical SEO”. 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.
There are many different routes to take. The WordPress Content management system is a great solution for a lot of small businesses. Custom database driven solutions are another great choice for our clients depending on their needs. Because we are truly experts in our field, we are not tied to one particular platform. We work hand in hand with our clients to identify the specific needs and present the solution that bests meets the needs of our clients.
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.
