I’m new to this whole website thing, how does it work?

Check out my process page for more details but there are basically 4 steps.  1) You gather your information. 2) You and I connect and figure out exactly what needs to be done to be successful. 3) I build your website. 4) We launch the website.

How much does a website cost?

I don’t have a set price for a website because the time and resources it takes to build a site can vary. That all depends on the complexity of the project. A basic business site will generally start in the $3000 range and increase based on your needs.

How long does it take to design and build a website?

A basic site will generally take about 4 weeks from start to finish if the content is ready to go.  In my experience it is better to gather all of your photos, videos and text before you contact someone to build your site.

Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?

Yes, and I will help you get this set up if you don’t already have a website.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is your address on the internet…something like yourdomain.com

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is where your website is physically housed.  A hosting company is just a bunch of powerful computers connected to the internet.  Some are definitely better than others.

Do you offer email services?

No, but I can help you set up email for your business through Google.

Will my website work on mobile devices?

Yes it will. I use mobile responsive technology which simply means the website will adjust itself to fit any screen size.

Do you do ecommerce/Online Store websites?

Absolutely.

Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?

Yes.  I can help you set up and optimize any social media channel that makes sense for your business and help you develop a content strategy. However, you know your business best so you have to be directly involved in posting content and interacting with your customers and clients.

Paid advertising on social media is a very effective strategy today and I can manage those campaigns for you as well.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Search Engine Optimization is getting a higher listing on a search engine for a given search term.  Broad search terms typically have more people searching for them and thus higher competition. More focused terms have fewer searches but are easier to rank for.

There are hundreds of ranking factors that sites like Google use to rank pages.  The best thing you can do is have great content that answers the questions people are asking.

Do you write the content for my site?

Yes, I can help you develop the content.

Can you design my logo?

I stick with what I am good at and logo design is not my specialty.  I can recommend several graphic designers if you need help or you can check out 99designs.com.
