No worries! We can help. You can learn about our process on our website services page.
Just like the cost of a house can vary, so does the development of a website; it depends on many factors. Our custom website projects start in the $20,000 range and go upward depending on your unique needs.
We are a small business and as much as we’d love to finance our clients’ websites, it’s just not realistic for us. We do understand the need to break payments for our clients and have a standard payment schedule that applies to all of our projects. We begin work on a project as soon as we receive a 50% deposit. After that, we invoice twice upon completion of key deliverables.
- 50% deposit up front
- 30% installment once functionality and design has been agreed upon
- 20% balance once the application has been tested and it is ready to go live.
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have prepared. We have a very thorough process and sites typically take about 3 months from kickoff to launch. That timeframe includes strategy, design, copywriting and development.
You do need your own domain name, but if you do not already have one we can facilitate this. We do offer hosting as part of our maintenance packages so you do not necessarily need to do this yourself.
Absolutely. All the websites we build are developed mobile-first and are responsive so they work on all devices.
Yes, we do. We have multiple copywriters on our team that focus on creating search-friendly web pages as well as writing meta descriptions for each page to optimize for SEO.
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like: yourbusinessname.com.
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. Simply put, it’s a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website. Typically, we host sites through WPEngine which specializes in WordPress websites.
A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without having to know how to code. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog posts on your website. No additional software is required. You just need a web browser and an internet connection.
Our preferred CMS is WordPress. WordPress is the most popular open-source CMS in the world and has thousands of developers constantly improving it and contributing plugins to extend it’s functionality. We can also build HTML sites.
We do indeed. In addition to providing you with a customized training session, we also include a library of website training videos in your WP Admin panel that you can access 24/7.
At it’s core, SEO is about getting people to your website. The higher you rank on Google or other search engines, the more traffic (or potential customers) you are likely to get. There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO. But the most important aspect is the content (words) on your website. When it comes to SEO “content is king”. Having well written, keyword appropriate and authentic content on your site is key. In addition to that, creating content on a regular basis is also important. The days of static websites are over.
