How much does a website cost?

How much does a website cost? This is a good question but there is not a one size fits all answer. If you went to a store and asked them how much TVs cost, they would ask you "which one". This is the same with websites. A website is dependent on many things like the requirements, scope and features. Example: How many pages? What kind of content? Are you needing e-commerce? or e-learning? Etc. We would be excited to learn about your project. Book a FREE Consultation.

How long does it take to build a website?

The length of time it takes to build a website depends on the size of the site. The smaller the website, the shorter the construction time. Within 30-60 days, a small site can be up and running, but large sites need 3 to 6 months to complete. Our full web design process is broken down here.

Do I need to have a website?

As digital marketers and website designers, we believe the answer is a resounding Yes! Word of mouth can be great, but a majority of consumers find and research companies online before making any purchases. Your website will help them find you as well as create authority and relevance, as well as boost brand awareness. Websites are an avenue for endless marketing strategies, including e-commerce, online customer service, and consumer engagement.

Why is having a website important?

It is true, that your business’s website, regardless of industry, can have a massive impact on your success. Your company has 2 seconds to gain the attention of a website visitor before they are off to another site.

We create quality websites that are high-performing, responsive, and support SEO integration while meeting our client’s functionality and user requirements.

We have a highly skilled in-house team with a diverse skill set ensuring we’re able to provide a specialist for each stage of your website.

Will my website be responsive on Tablets and Phones?

Responsive websites drive more traffic and elevate you in the search engine rankings. Responsive web design—the use of a single website and its design to respond appropriately to the device from which it is being accessed—is not new, but many organizations have yet to adopt this standard for their sites.

Since so many people use smart phones and tablet devices to use the internet, businesses can lose significant traffic flow simply by having an unresponsive website. Poor conversion rates are a natural consequence of this issue. Our Eugene team will make sure that every page on your site is responsive and functional, thereby providing the best experience to each user.

Can you update my website that was designed by another web company?

Unfortunately, we do not offer support for websites that were created by another web development company. We adhere to this policy because there are issues of liability due to not being there on the ground up. We can’t for sure confirm that a website is stable and has the ability to not crash or have issues that we were no privy to due to not being a part of the original design team.

Do you offer website hosting?

We help our clients with setting up hosting with their own provider that we recommend. This gives our client’s control with their hosting. We do offer website maintenance for both websites and hosting.

Can you make my website accessible?

By implementing website accessibility best practices, you are also improving the usability of the site for all users. Making your website accessible is a good way to demonstrate inclusive company values and makes it accessible and easier to use for people who have disabilities in their vision, hearing or motor skills.

There are a number of ways to make your website more accessible. If you are looking to add website accessibility options to your website, we are certified to help you with your options.

How often should I update my website?

If your website has not been updated or improved in a long time, it’s unlikely to attract interest from new customers.

Although a static website technically qualifies as a website, it is more like a brochure than anything else; it will only appeal to people who are familiar with your business and have already decided to do business with you but won’t bring you new business.

Google and other search engines give priority to websites that are updated often with good quality content. Plus it keeps it fresh so that when people come back they have something new to see or learn.

What if I don’t like the website?

We have never had that happen before, because we build a general mockup in Photoshop before we build out your website. This the perfect opportunity to give us feedback so that you will never say to us “I don’t like my website” after it is designed on the web. You have complete say about what you do and don’t like. We will partner with you to create the perfect website for you.
