All of the websites we create are built on a “responsive” theme framework. This means the design of your website displays the content in a format suitable for the screen a user loads it up on; whether its a phone or a 30 inch monitor.
We don’t expect you to know much about websites. That is why you hire us! Our process for building websites makes it easy for you to understand. We lay out all the moving parts in an easy-to-follow workbook covering everything from what should go on your homepage to SEO. We help you fill out the workbook with great advice.
HTML is for the birds. You will be able to edit your website with a simple content editor that is similar to Word or other word processors. Part of the planning process includes deciding what things need to be edited and defining the best way to manage it. We outfit you with a handbook and spend time showing you how to manage your site.
Well, it’s for a couple of reasons:
1. We use open source technology.
That means our developers along with thousands of others have created software that we all use and maintain. This means we don’t have to spend our resources on maintaining out of date proprietary software and we can pass the savings onto you.
2. Robots and web scripts work for free so you only pay for the parts that require a human.
Most of the features on your site have been done before. You pay for the time spent on configuring the look and feel of those features, tailoring them to be the most effective in attracting new customers or sales leads.
3. We are focused.
Buy focusing on offering websites as our one core service we have become really good at it. All of our systems are designed to make it more efficient and as a result, more cost effective for our customers.
You should provide page content for your site if a content add-on was not purchased. Investing in great content, photos, or video can make a world of difference in the success of your website.
We have a network of copywriters, photographers, and videographers that we work with to help create the content you need for you site. All have different rates and skill sets so we work within your needs and budget to outfit you with the best vendor.
If you have an in-house copywriter, we help layout exactly the type of content you need to write, as well as the pictures you need to take in our website planning workbook.
However, we have access to stock photography at no extra cost to you.
We wish we could call Google and make this happen; but its not that easy. There are a few fundamentals that can ensure you show up in the top spot on google. Quality content is the most important and it turns out that is what humans prefer in a website as well.
If you’re looking for a SEO plan to list in search engine rankings, we recommend our on-site optimization add-on.
You will only have ongoing feeds for your domain and hosting.
Domain fees range from $9 to $20 a year; however pricing can increase from these amounts depending on the domain you are wanting to purchase.
Hosting fees range from $15 to $50 a month and we recommend a hosting package to fit your needs. If you already have a hosting provider we don’t require you to get a new package; however we will review over your current hosting package and recommend an upgrade if needed.
First, it is important to know your domain could be managed at one company and your web hosting at another. Not sure what’s what, we’re here to help you figure it? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your web address and we will do our best to find out the details for you free of charge.
If you do know where your domain is managed at, we ask you provide us with your login credentials and we manage the transition for you.
That sounds awesome! However, I don’t know if we would be the right fit for you. We really do our best work building websites that market products and services. Websites that are more services than promotional sites are best left to another team. If you give us a call we would be glad to point you in the right direction.
Once you are ready to get started you can pay online or send a check in the mail. We require 50% to begin the project and the remaining balance when the site is published. We do accept all major credit cards.
