Frequently Asked Question
How much does a new website cost?
There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components; I design and develop custom websites specifically for your small business. I’ll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a quote based on that assessment.
How long will it take to get a new website?
On average, I shoot for a Four to six-week turnaround, but the pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you can provide during the initial stages, your availability with feedback, how soon the content is ready – all this affects the speed of completion. The functionality needs may also play a role – more complex sites will take more time to develop.
Do you only create WordPress websites?
Yes. WordPress is a great content management system that now powers more than 30% of the web. Its huge market share is due to its flexibility and ease of use. Don’t worry, we’ll teach you how to manage it and help you along the way.
Do I have to be local to work with you?
Nope! I work with clients all over the world. The whole team works remotely, allowing me to find the absolute best team for my business.
Will I be able to update the site myself when it’s finished?
Yes! I love it when my clients take control of their website and learn to manage it on their own. I’ll provide you with a set of comprehensive tutorials to help you learn your way around, as well as provide you with a training session to help get you on your way. (Note: I love to answer your questions!)
Will you maintain my site for me?
I can! I provide ongoing support for many of my clients With the additional costs.
When do I pay?
For most projects, equal payments are made at the start, midway, and the end of the project, but I can work with you to set up a schedule that meets your needs. I understand that this is a big investment and want to help you budget for the expense in whatever way possible.
How much input do I have in the process?
A lot! Your input and feedback are crucial to this process. I’ll start with a lot of questions about your needs, your likes, your wants and work with you to develop just the right look and functionality.
Who writes the content for the site?
Usually, that is you. You are the expert on your business, so it’s usually best if it comes from you. If you need help, I can recommend copywriters who can help clean up or write original content for you at an additional cost.
What if I need help on my site down the road?
I am here to help you as much or as little as you need, and I won’t disappear once the site is launched. I’ve been doing this for many years, so I am not going anywhere anytime soon.
