I currently have a website. Should I consider redesigning it, and why?
Web technology is a constantly evolving organism! In order to gain competitive advantage over competitors we feel a quarterly review is beneficial to examine a website’s traffic flow and provide strategic updates as necessary. Plus, if your website is more than a year old – we find customers delightfully surprised at the modern design abilities, search engine optimization efficiencies, and affordable price.
Do I need a mobile website?
Yes. Mobile traffic is growing rapidly, and is more than 30% of all internet traffic. In short…yes. Search from mobile devices is increasing daily. If your website’s design is not mobile friendly, you are losing valuable customers to competitors!
Why is my business not showing up on google search results?
Being found on the web begins with having a well-crafted website. Implementing a search engine optimization strategy will help boost rankings and gain web presence. There are no shortcuts! Writing fresh content on a regular basis, and choosing the appropriate keywords consistent with your optimization strategy will support search engine rankings. We recommend clients become self-sufficient with handling regular content such as blog posts; however, we also offer social media and content management services to aid in SEO efforts.
Can you take/move content from my existing website?
Yes, if redesigning an existing site we can move the content to the new site if desired. Upon evaluation of the existing site’s content, design, and images, we will provide our evaluation and recommendation for transferring existing content into a fresh web design.
When should I submit final content and images?
It is preferred that all site content be submitted at the start of the project. However, you can submit additional content throughout the design phase. Please note that submitting additional content, or changing any content during the development phase of the project may result in implications to the timeline and price.
I don’t have written content or photography for my new website. Can you help?
Sure, we are able to meet with you to better understand your business and industry, and offer writing services as an add-on to any web design project. Also, our commercial photographer is able to shoot merchandise, projects, brick-and-mortar locations, and just about anything needed for your new/ re-designed website or social media campaign.
How long will it take for my website to become live?
Of course this answer depends on the complexity of the website, number of pages, images, written content, service add-ons, etc. We will provide a detailed process timeline in which we specify inputs needed from our clients, review dates, and deliverable dates. Please note that any change to our original plan may result in implications to the timeline and price of the project, though we aim to be as flexible as possible!
Will I be able to update my site when it is done?
Yes. You will have full access to the files on your hosting account. You can edit them through any number of programs. The Web Studio offers a one-hour training session with purchase of a monthly maintenance package.
