Frequently Asked Questions

I've been building digital solutions since 1998. In Internet terms, that's a rarity, but for my clients its a good thing. Over the years I've found that new clients often have the same questions. Here are a few I get asked a lot.

Where do I start? What do you need from me to begin?

Great question! To see the process I use and how to get started, take a look at my Process page.

How much does a website cost?

Just like buying a house, the cost of a website varies depending on the scope of your project, and the unique challenges I'm trying to solve for you. Typically, my websites start at $7,500 - $10,000 for a basic Website & marketing strategy and go up from there.

How long does it take?

The time it takes to produce a website and online marketing strategy depends on the size and complexity you require. The amount of content you have ready to go also plays a part in how fast I can deliver. Once I complete my Initial Consultation, I'll provide an accurate timeline to help your project stay on course. Typically the process takes about 4 weeks

Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?

Yes, but don't worry I can help you register your domain name and setup hosting with a Managed Website Hosting Company. My client sites are hosted exclusively with a hosting provider that guarantees a secure, managed hosting solution to protect your site once it goes live.

Will my website work on mobile devices?

Yes! I specialize in Responsive, mobile first websites. That means I design my sites for mobile displays first, then design them to work on larger displays. This ensures the most consistent, user-friendly final product possible.

What is a Content Management System?

The Content Management System I use allows you to easily maintain the pages of your website yourself, or have your own staff take care of site content for you. It allows you to add, edit and delete pages, images, video and blog entries without the need for me to be involved. I provide training sessions and free video training to ensure trouble free editing. No additional software is needed. All changes take place right in your web browser.

Do you provide training?

Yes! I provide training sessions and free video training to ensure trouble free editing.

Do you help with Social Media and Email Marketing?

Absolutely! As part of your overall marketing strategy, I can include both Social Media and Email Marketing services.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Search Engine Optimization involves making sure that best practices are followed in the development and content of your website to make sure that you rank as high as possible in Search Engines such as Google & Bing. The higher you rank, the more visitors you get, and we'll help you track them too :) One of the most important factors in SEO is your copy. Focusing on keyword rich, appropriate and well written content is the key.

Do you write the content for my site?

I don't write content, Its just not my forte. I do however work closely with a copywriter who can provide these services for you.
