Typically, most website builds take between 6-10 weeks depending on the number of pages, photography/videography needs, and how complex the project is. If we have the content and creative assets upfront, we can move very quickly and complete the project in 6 weeks or less. If we are developing everything from scratch, it will take longer, but generally speaking, web design projects should not take longer than 10-12 weeks at the most.
A big part of what we do is help you figure this part out. Most people think they need more when in fact they need less. We recommend fewer pages, but the important thing is that they are intentional, well designed, and curated to speak directly to your target audience. Our starter websites are between 1-4 pages. Business sites are 5-7, and custom projects are up to 10 pages, but typically don’t need to be more than that.
Yes! In today’s world it must be. All our sites are designed to be completely responsive, which means that they will look great and function well on desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile.
We will ask you upfront if you intend to do SEO after your website build. If so, then we will build it out strategically to incorporate the pieces we know we need for SEO. If you aren’t sure, then we will build the site to attract your target customer, and then return to the SEO conversation when the time is right to continue development. SEO is a crucial component for some businesses, and it’s not the right fit for others. We can help advise you on whether or not your business should pursue SEO.
Yes! Many clients know what they want to say, but are paralyzed by the idea of having to figure out how to say it. Putting pen to paper can be a tough thing if it’s not what you do every day. We can help. Our project managers are skilled in these areas and can assist with content creation, curation, and photography/videography production as well.
Cost will vary based on the number of pages, and what we’ll be helping you with. If you want a 3 page site, and you already have photos, content and design assets, that will be very different than if you want 10 pages with complete content development, photography, videography, integrations etc. After we have an initial call with you to assess your needs, we will put together a quote for you.
Yes! All sites need hosting, security, and maintenance, and that’s why we offer website care plans. After we build your site, we can move you to a website care plan or an SEO package depending on your business and your needs.
It depends on when and how your website was built. If it is a WordPress site that was built last year, that’s a completely different story than if your website is 10 years old. We will evaluate your website’s overall condition and health and make recommendations regarding if you need a rebuild, or simply some basic care, maintenance, and content/creative tweaks.
This is a question we get a lot. Your domain is simply the name of your website, and address you are sending people to. You might already have a domain name or several, or you might need help finding one, and we can assist with that. Domains are typically not expensive to purchase, and have to be renewed yearly to continue ownership.
Hosting is what happens when your website goes live. In order for people to see and interact with your website, it has to “live” somewhere or “rent space” online in order for it to work properly. What we do with our plans is manage this for you, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about. Similar to the domains, this has to be renewed on an ongoing basis to keep your website live. For all of our sites with managed hosting, we also provide maintenance, security, and support so that your websites stay up and running without any issues.
Although we have in the past, and have the skills to do so, at this time we do not build e-commerce sites. They are very time consuming to build and maintain, and we recommend working with a provider that focuses on this on a daily basis.
Yes, we work exclusively with WordPress. The reason for this is that it’s a dependable platform to build in and then use to manage and maintain your site. And it’s also SEO friendly which is incredibly valuable for our clients. Other platforms can be good if you are building and maintaining a very simple site yourself, but there can be many issues. For high-quality, well developed websites that can be SEO optimized and function well for the long haul, we recommend WordPress. If you have a site that you are happy with, but are experiencing issues because of the way it was built, we can rebuild it in WordPress to resolve this.
You have an ideal customer. And that customer searches Google. SEO is essentially figuring out what they are searching for, and putting your website in front of them so they can call you instead of your competitor.
For some businesses, an amazing website and successful ongoing SEO campaign are the only marketing tools you need. For service based industries like plumbing and roofing, it’s a no brainer.
For other businesses, there might be more pieces to the puzzle and in that case, we can do a one-time SEO Discovery to see if it’s a good fit for you and if SEO is valuable enough to pursue. If it is, then we’ll make recommendations based on our findings, and if it’s not, we’ll tell you so you can spend your money elsewhere.
Regarding short and long term value, running Google ads is like renting a house, and organic SEO is like buying one. Google ads can be a great compliment to your overall SEO strategy and help generate some immediate leads while we build your organic search volume, but it’s not good to use as a standalone tactic especially long term.
If you have more detailed questions about using both organic SEO and pay per click ads as part of your strategy, let’s talk more.
Results vary greatly based on location, industry and how competitive the market is. Generally speaking, 3-6 months is the average amount of time it takes to see results, and then growth will continue steadily as time goes on.
The ultimate goal is to get you ranked on the first page of Google for your target keywords. But, since it takes time to get there, we measure important milestones along the way.
All our clients get access to our SEO dashboard which measures your keyword rankings, website traffic, user engagement, and much more. We also send out monthly reports and offer monthly consultations to review your campaign and track your progress.
Our SEO packages start at $750/month, and prices will vary/increase depending on location, industry, and level of competition. Each month, we have tasks to complete to increase the value and visibility of your site. Once you are ranked, there’s work we have to do to keep you there. Our SEO experts keep a watchful eye on your competition, update and monitor your website, and make adjustments to keep you on top.
Our initial SEO agreement is for 3 months, and after that you can continue on a month to month basis. However, we recommend that all clients commit to a minimum of 6 months to a year for optimal results. Many of our SEO clients have been with us for several years, and there’s a reason for that. SEO is best used as a long term commitment, and the investment will pay off for years to come.
