Simple & Memorable
What constitutes a “good” web design? In the time that it takes you to read this sentence, the average Internet user will have already decided whether to stay on your website or to continue searching on another website. A good design will, ultimately, encourage the user to stay on your site and click through several of your pages, and make a buying decision, or at least get the information they were looking for! In the ever-changing world of web design, however, design standards and functionality are constantly evolving in tandem with web standards.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it really matter if my website looks dated?
When you receive a visitor to your site, they will instantly perceive the quality of your services or products. The first impression a customer or potential customer gets depends on the appearance of your website.
A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing, easy to navigate, and offers useful information. You are marketing yourself and your business to the world over the Internet and it is important to show your best.
Do I really need a professionally designed website?
Websites have come and gone over the years but what people really want is information presented in a professional way so they can quickly get answers to their questions. When you have a professional web design, the information is set up in a way that users can navigate through your website easily.
We recommend certain tactics that call the user to action. All this wrapped in a great-looking professional web design package will tell users that you take your business seriously and they will feel more comfortable doing business with you.
Do you write my website content for me?
No. Nobody knows your business, your products, and your clients the way you do, so preparing the body text is something that you will need to do.
How should I supply the content I want on my website?
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form – for example, the files output by a digital camera and the copy in MS word or similar format.
All content should be proofed and checked for spelling and grammar errors before given to the web designer. There will be a copywriting fee if you require us to check your spelling and grammar, which we will do upon request.
I Need Some Changes On My Web Site Or Template. Do You Provide That Service?
Yes! For one-time changes, we will provide you with an estimate before beginning the work and charge at our standard hourly rate.
If you anticipate regular needs for maintenance, one of our Ongoing Maintenance Plans may be more cost-effective for you.
Do we have to host with you?
No, unlike other companies we don’t make hosting with us mandatory. However, choosing to host with us is a BIG advantage for you.
You don’t have to worry about any technical aspects of managing your hosting account and the servers, we do it all for you. Plus you just have a one-point contact for your web presence. If there is a problem it is always better to call a single reliable company who can take care of everything while you concentrate on your business. We will make your website one less worry for you.
How long will it take for my project to be completed?
The timeline of a website design project is often left up to the client. If you have a deadline to meet, we will make every effort to have your site done by that date. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) from the client.
For most projects, we try to work within the 4-6 week time-frame.
What is the average cost of a website?
It is difficult to quote an average price, due to the enormous range in requirements for a site. It all depends on what the client’s needs are. Sometimes there is a fixed price for a basic site, other times there is a fixed base price, with an hourly fee added if you have a lot of picture manipulation.
So – to put it bluntly, there is no one price, it all depends on what is needed.
Are there any other services include in your web design development costs?
Yes! Our web design and development service include adding and configuring your email accounts, setting up your google analytics monthly traffic reports, and basic search engine optimization services. Basic SEO includes submission of your site to the major search engines, and the setup of your primary metatag information (Page Title, Description, and Keywords). Additionally, your site is built with search engine-friendly technologies and methods.
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer website maintenance, web hosting, SEO and marketing, domain registration, and graphic design and print. We have you covered.
Are there hidden costs in your design services?
No. We discuss your website requirements and then price accordingly. Once you put your deposit down for your website design with us, we work hard so that the outlined price given to you is strictly adhered to. Web design is very much an evolutionary process and often clients change the scope of a project once underway. If the need to alter the price quote arises, we will communicate this to you before any extra work is started.
You may incur added fees for hosting and domain name. These fees are separate from your web design quote., and will be included in your quote as a separate item.
Can you supply hosting and domain name management?
Yes – we are your one-stop-shop providing all your web services. No more – not knowing who to call if you have problems – we can register your domain name – design your website – provide your web hosting and arrange your email accounts for you.
Do you charge a monthly fee for a website?
Yes, the monthly fee covers the hosting of your site. Web site hosting is similar to telephone service. You pay AT&T or Verizon so when someone calls your phone number it rings and connects you. Web site hosting works along the same lines… when a prospective customer searches Google and clicks on a link to your site, or even types in your domain name directly into their web browser, it’s the hosting service that connects them to our web servers where we provide the requested page to them.
Your monthly fee also covers weekly, or nightly backups of the site, monthly reports of traffic and visitors to your site, the storage space your site occupies on the server, and the monthly data transfer (Internet traffic) consumed by the site, as well as your domain name if we purchase it for you.
Any and all fees are clearly stated on your quote.
