WHY DO YOU REQUIRE 100% OF CONTENT UPFRONT?
Your content is a crucial part of your site, so having it ready before development helps our team better optimize and build your site around the content that will be there.
Content is often the biggest bottleneck, so we like to be proactive in getting a majority of the content in place before we begin first steps in the process.
WHAT FACTORS DETERMINE THE COST TO BUILD A WEBSITE?
Two things: volume and customization.
Volume is simply the # of pages on your site. All things being equal, a 10-page website is going to be less expensive than a 95-page site.
Customization can mean …
Custom content. Do you already have written content for your site or does it need to be developed?
Custom design. Do you want a highly unique or unusual layout for your site that requires re-engineering the underlying site structure?
Custom images and graphics. Do your images and graphics require specialized Photoshop effects, above and beyond standard cropping and resizing?
Custom programming. Does your site require integration and rigorous testing with a 3rd-party application like a shopping cart or client scheduling system?
It’s fine if you want a high degree of customization. Just understand that it increases the cost of your project.

ARE YOUR WEBSITES SEO FRIENDLY?
Yes! SEO optimization comes as a standard in our web design approach.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE, TO GET ON THE FIRST PAGE OF GOOGLE?
Yes, your business could reach the first page of Google, it depends on how satureted is your industry and how hard is your cometition working. There is no clear answer to this question, as search engines change their requirements all the time. However, we have had clients get on the first page for their main keywords, within 2 days of launching and we have had websites that take 2–3-10 months for very competitive industries.
WHY AM I NOT RANKING #1 IN SEARCH RESULTS RIGHT AWAY?
While your site may be optimized for organic SEO, it takes a while for the bots that are crawling your website to see the changes and improve your rankings.
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO HAVE A GOOD WEBSITE?

CAN I FIX MY OLD WEBSITE INSTEAD OF STARTING A NEW ONE?
A website is more than just physical appearance. It is also the site architecture and technology behind it, both of which may be helping, or hurting you in Google rankings and users experience. If you are looking for graphic or content updates that’s one thing, but if your site is not hitting industry benchmarks (like site speed, mobile responsiveness, content architecture, etc.), then it’s a good time to evaluate your options.
