How Long Does It Take To Create A Website?
The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website is based on several factors.
- Custom design work can take anywhere from 1 – 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you require.
- The development phase requires an additional 1 – 6 weeks, depending on the number of pages, and the functionality required.
Of course, these are general guidelines, and we will make every effort to meet the time-frame you have in mind.
How is the cost of a new website determined?
Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization, copy-writing, and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs and not what we think the market will tolerate.
There are many, many factors that influence the ultimate cost of any given website, and we encourage you to refer our packages regarding Website pricing for more information and guidance in searching for your Website provider.
What kind of businesses do you work with?
We work with a broad range of company types [small start-ups, large corporations, nonprofits, B2B, B2C and more] across many business industries [technology, food, apparel, health + beauty, camps, travel, finance, arts, fair trade, and more.]
We’ve help businesses improve customer service, market their products, and attract customers. Functionality, requests range from basic to advanced. Our team takes the time to get to know your industry, organization, and competitors to ensure your site supports all of your goals.
How long does it take to build a website?
This is hard to say, as it varies greatly by client. A custom micro-site can take as little as four weeks and a large, complex B2B website can take three months. Similar to costing, the time-frame for implementation varies on complexity and the number of web pages and blog posts. In most cases, we are waiting on the client and the client is not waiting on us.
Do you offer customization to existing themes?
Of course! We have WordPress coders who are experts at the Genesis Framework from Studio Press and we love helping people with WordPress installation, theme configurations, customization, and plugin support. Whether you bought one of our premium WordPress themes or a Studio Press theme, we can help.
Can I See My Website While It's In Progress?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. We build your website on our development server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. During this phase, we encourage your feedback if something isn’t quite the way you envisioned it or if you’ve changed your mind. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, we release it live on your server and submit your URL to the major search engines.
How Many Changes Can I Make To My Site Without Additional Cost?
We give as much latitude as we possibly can. After you’ve identified the general format and color schemes of your preferred design, we’ll complete up to 2 rounds of major revisions at no charge. All minor revisions are provided at no charge.
Are Any Other Services Included In Your Web Design And Development Costs?
Yes. Our web design and development service includes configuration of your email accounts, detailed 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 from the ground up with search engine friendly technologies and methods.
When Is Payment Required For Your Web Site Design And Development Services?
For small projects, 50% of the estimated fee must be provided prior to beginning work, with the remaining payment due upon completion of the project. For larger projects, an initial payment representing one-third of the estimated total fee is required. The second payment is required upon the halfway point, with the final third due upon completion of the project.
What type of web development do you do?
The majority of our work is done in PHP in a Linux environment. Our Site OnCall system is built in PHP. However, we also have developers experience in .NET, ASP and JAVA.
When building websites, it rarely matters whether it is developed using PHP or another programming language. To the person clicking through your website, the user experience is generally the same. However, we do work with some clients who have a specific development platform need based on their business structure or other systems they use. We will work with you to determine the best solutions for your project.
