Common Website Questions
How much does a new website cost?
The cost of a new website can vary depending on your needs. Our average website is in the $4000-6000 range. However, costs could be lower or higher depending on the requirements of your website. For example, a large website with an ecommerce database would cost more. Alternatively, a simple website that showcases your services and contact information would cost less.
How long will it take to develop my new website?
Typically, we aim to have website projects complete in 8 weeks. The size of your website will affect the time it takes to build. A small website might be completed in under a month. A larger website with more complex functionality may take several months.
There are a lot of moving parts when building a website. Your initial input on design decisions and content creation (and the time it takes to get that feedback) can often slow things down. We provide a clear timeline ahead of starting the project to help prepare for this.
Are there maintenance costs for my new website?
This depends on whether you host your website on our server.
If you host with us: All of our website hosting clients receive 24/7/365 support. We are responsible for your website functionality, speeds, up-time, back-ups and security. No additional fees are required to maintain or perform small updates to your website. Learn more about our website hosting services here.
If you host elsewhere: If we do not host your website on our server, we do not have the access needed to guarantee proper maintenance. You and your website hosting provider are responsible for the functionality, speeds, up-time, back-ups and security of your website.
Will my new website be mobile friendly?
Of course! Our developers are Google Mobile First certified, making mobile-friendly development a standard part of our process. This means that your website isn’t just “mobile friendly”, but looks pixel-perfect on all devices. From the largest desktop screen to the small smartphone, and every screen size in between.
Will I be actively involved in my new website design and development?
Yes! Particularly at the very beginning of the project, and again towards the end.
Initially, we will meet with you and ask a long list of questions about your business. This is a tried and tested process developed from years of building websites for small businesses. You will be given the opportunity to give your input on design, messaging, content, and much more.
Once we have a final draft of the website developed, we come back to you again for your input. Looking for any final tweaks we can make to the design and content to ensure you are 100% happy with your new website.
Can I write the content for my new website?
Yes you can. Although, for several reasons, this is not something we usually recommend.
Our standard process is to meet with you and obtain the information we need to design, develop and write an amazing new website. Sticking to this process allows our team to work efficiently and produce the best results. Our in-house content specialist will write content for your website that speaks to search engines and also encourage conversion actions.
When do I pay for my new website?
Our usual process for payment is to collect a $500 deposit at the beginning of the project. The remaining balance is invoiced at the end of the project, and payment is expected ahead of taking your new website live.
We also offer a 10 month payment program. The total cost of your website is split into 10 monthly payments. Contact us to learn more about this program.
I have a strict website budget, are there low-cost options?
Yes, we have a few different pricing options available. We realize a new website is a big investment for smaller businesses, and we strive to ensure that we are an professional option for those businesses.
Our standard website pricing is extremely competitive so we rarely find ourselves in a position where we need to discount our services. However, some small businesses like to take advantage of our 10 month payment program. This helps split payments into more manageable monthly invoices.
As part of our core values, we also offer discounted services to non-profits and businesses that care for animals. Depending on the situation, we will occasionally donate our services to these businesses for no charge. If you have a non-profit or animal care website project, contact us today to see how we can help.
Will my website be built in WordPress?
It depends! WordPress is our go-to content management system. It’s the most popular website platform in the world, and it’s open-source software creates endless opportunities for functionality. But it might not be the right fit for you.
We choose a platform that suits the custom needs of your business. If you are building an ecommerce website, we might recommend Shopify. Or if a high-speed website is essential to your business, we might build it in a JS React framework. However, in most cases, we will build your website in WordPress using a WordPress theme that our developers created themselves.
What if I want to update my website in the future?
Our support team is always available to help implement any future updates to your website. You are also provided with access to the backend of your website. This means you can post blogs, update text and images, or make other small changes to your website.
