Web Design Faq's

Similar questions frequenty arise as we begin a new Website design project so to be “proactive” and save you from having to ask, here are the answers to the questions we hear the most frequently.

  1. The #1 question we are asked is... What does a website cost? Unfortunately, since each website we build is custom built for each client that's a difficult question to answer. Each project is unique and is tailored to that specific client's need. While our minimum project fee is $2,500 some projects have exceeded $50,000. Your goals and desires for your website will determine the dollars necessary to complete the project. Bigger and complex sites obviously require a larger budget than a simple “on-line brochure” site. For most projects we provide a free estimate that will detail the tasks to be performed and the number of hours we estimate it will take to complete.

  2. The 2nd most frequently asked question is... How long does it take to build a website? Again, this depends on how large and complex your site will be as well as our current work load. Both of these factors will affect the time required to build your website. Simple projects often take two   months, complex projects rarely are completed in under three months. Of course the most frequent delay is that we have to wait on content such as text and photos from the client when we aren't developing it for them. We’re pretty good about nagging to get it, but sometimes clients can't give it to us in a timely manner.

  3. Clients also often ask... How long before search engines rank my site? Much like getting a new phone number and waiting for the phone books to print the new directory with the number listed, search engines need time to “publish” a new database that includes your site. Due to our successful tactics for marketing your site, the dominant search engines, Google, bing! and Yahoo will normally pick up a site in a few weeks now. The site will likely not rank highly in the beginning, but can generally be found for your company name. Ranking at the top of the search engine results can take over a year depending on the search engine and whether or not a monthly SEO Campaign has been implemented. Google in particular seems to have a strange approach to rankings. We have documented them ranking a site on the first page of the results as quickly as two months, only to have them push the site back to page three or four for the remainder of a year. Google also appears to favor older domains, seemingly penalizing newly registered domains. While the number of inbound links to a site often affects the rankings, these delays seem to go over and above that.

  4. Is there a monthly or annual fee for having a website? Yes, the monthly fee covers the hosting of your website. Website hosting can be easily compared to telephone service. You pay AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or CenturyLink so if someone calls your phone it rings and connects the call. Website hosting is similar... when a prospective site visitor searches Google and clicks on a search result, or even types in your URL (domain name) into their Web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.)  it’s the website hosting service that connects the site visitor to our Web servers where we deliver the requested page to them. Your monthly or annual fees also pay for nightly off-site backups of the site, reports of traffic and visitors to your site, storage space (in Gigabytes) the site takes up on the server and the monthly bandwidth (Internet traffic) the site uses.

  5. How do I know if anyone came to my website? Monthly or daily on some plans, we analyze the logs from the web server (that record every visitor to the site and which pages they view) and produce a detailed HTML report (apx. 40 pages) of the sites activity. It includes the number of both normal (people) visitors as wells as search spiders, the pages that were viewed, which order the pages were most commonly viewed in (paths through the site), to a limited extent anymore which search engines drove traffic to the site, and which keyword phrases were used to drive that traffic (again limited since Google and Bing! started encrypting the searches with https we no longer get much of that data). These reports can be accessed through your website and we e-mail you a zipped copy of them.

Wana RV Achieves Success With BANG!

  • I'm a guy with a lot of ideas and I like to bounce those ideas off their team. They tweak my ideas, adjust the page or graphics, and it’s ready to go. In a good news/bad news scenario, the Web site proved almost too successful. I aggressively advertised a product on his site, garnered phenomenal national sales; however, the manufacturer thought that my low pricing was too aggressive and asked me to “tone down” my marketing because other dealers were complaining. I use that experience as an example of the power of the Internet as it relates to increased sales.

    I'm always getting compliments about my Web site. Others comment about how easy it is to read and the prices are right on the same page. They don’t have to do a lot of ‘clicking around’ to find the information they want. My Web site generates more sales than any other marketing venue. I also use radio, the Yellow Pages, television and newspaper, but I’m cutting back on those. The Web is my best tool and gives me the most sales. - Gary Miller, Wana RV & Engine Center
