How much do you charge for building a website?
Though web design fees start at around $1500 for straightforward projects, fees vary according to complexity and scale of the design. Call me and let's talk, or if you would like a rough idea first, please have a look at sample Web Design Fees.
Do you redesign existing websites?
Yes, I most certainly do. It usually involves as much work as does building a whole new website and so costs accordingly. Of course, if all content of the existing website is top drawer and image files high quality and high enough resolution, it might be possible to get things done with more bang for less. Let's talk.
How long does it take for a website to go live?
This depends on the same factors that determine the price tag on your website. The average being four weeks, a small simple website could go live in as little as three weeks, while a complex web design project could take six weeks. You should have a pretty good idea about the timeframe required for your project after we first meet for your no obligation consultation and quote.
What steps are involved in the design process?
The Web Design Steps page has the answers to this.
Do you set up websites at no additional charge?
Yes. Set up, spell-checking, link checking, and initial troubleshooting is included, as is your one year warranty.
Do you offer managed hosting with website content updates?
Yes, I do. $25 a month gets you a managed hosting account, help with setting email addresses up at your domain, and one hour of my time twice a year reserved for website changes that you request or support issues; or if your needs are such, $30 monthly gets you similar but with half hour of my time monthly. Similar account for dynamic (CMS) websites is $35 a month. Please visit my www.digibee.net for details.
Is there such thing as web design warranty?
A one year warranty is included; errors both technical and typographical attributable to my work will be corrected free of charge within a period of one year of project completion.
Do you submit websites to search engines?
All websites are submitted to major search engines. These include Google, Yahoo and Bing. Inclusion is not guaranteed and could take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
Can you get my website to list first in search engine results?
A lot of people are working hard to stay on top of what search engines are doing. Because the algorithms change often and differ a great deal from one to the next, no one can guarantee your certain placement in the search results.
Nonetheless, there are ways to improve your website's findability, reach, popularity, search engine friendliness and thus its positioning in search engine listings. In addition, there are paid advertisements - some of which can appear at or near the top of the search results.
