How Long Will It Take to Complete My Website?
The answer to this question will vary depending on the project, but generally it takes up three to four weeks.
We can give you an estimated timeline for your project, and if you need to have your site completed faster, let us know.
In general though, how soon your website work can be done done depends on a number of things, such as:
The size of your website
The complexity of your design
Any advanced features you need
When your content is ready
Our current client design schedule
Your timely feedback and input on our work
Do You Provide Mockups?
Yes, we do. We provide full-color mockups, via a test link to our clients for every project we agree to work with. These mockups are the first step in our design process.
Once we show them to you and come to an agreement about the website design, that will be the basis for your new website.
Can You Guarantee Me a Top Ranking in the Search Engines?
Our diligent work will certainly result in improvements but we don't guarantee that your website will reach a particular position on any search engine.
We do guarantee to work closely with you to develop a successful search engine optimization strategy for your business. Although we employ a proven method of website optimization, each site presents its own unique set of challenges and opportunities for long term success.
We do promise that we will not engage in SEO practices that violate search engine webmaster guidelines for honest and ethical standards.
How Long Will It Take For My Site to Make It to the Top of Google?
Comprehensive search engine optimization (SEO) work is a process that typically takes several months. The factors that influence the speed that your site advances in the rankings include the age of your site, the existing quality of the website and how it is optimized, your competition, and the skill of the firm who is optimizing your site.
That said, you should see positive change in your rankings within the first month. We have helped clients with brand new websites rank on the first page of Google for competitive keywords within one to two months.
My Brother in Law / Nephew / Employee Says That They Can Design My Website for free. Why Shouldn't I Just Let Them Design It?
Just because someone offers you a free service, that doesn't always mean that they're good at it. Especially if that's not their full-time job, or they have little experience.
When it comes to websites, plenty of people can build them.
But most won't know exactly how to get that site to show up well on search websites like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Likewise, they may not know the best practices with website design; have little knowledge and/or hands on experience to apply to your website.
Keep in mind -- at some point in time, you may want and/or need to make some updates / changes to your website. Will they be around and able to update your site, in a timely manner?
I have a friend that has worked on cars since he was a kid. If he tells me that he can fix a problem with my car, I trust that he will do a good job.
But if he offered to handle my taxes, just because he did it once for a relative, I may not take a chance with that.
A mistake with something like that can cost me money. Just like getting a website done by someone without internet marketing / website design experience can cost you potential business.
It usually pays off to simply hire a professional in the first place. Isn't Your Website Work It?
