What’s the process involved to build a website?
We need to gather your content first.
This includes text and images and anything else you have in mind, if you’ve had any previous marketing done this is something we can review as well – so we can get an idea of where you’ve been visually over time and make sure that your new website will reflect any previous and existing branding.
Then we will review your potential competition online. With your content and some ideas from you as to what you’d like to see in your own website, we start working on the initial designs.
We keep this process simple and easy – and make sure you are involved in the design and styling of your new website.
We’ll make sure it adheres to any current branding you have and that you love the final designs.
We’ll guide you through this process every step of the way, and only when you’re 100% satisfied with the final design do we set your new site into production.
What happens once I approve my website design?
Once you approve a final design we start building your website.
Final step before launch is to provide you a final demonstration of the finished website and we can make any final minor adjustments prior to launch.
This allows us to fine tune your website and make sure you’re completely happy with the end result.

What should I be looking for in a web design company?
Find a web design company you feel comfortable with.
Call their offices and get a feel for who you’re going to be dealing with.
If you need help with your website you’re going to want them to answer the phone or return an email within a reasonable timeframe, make sure this is happening during the initial discussions.
You should also ask them for samples of their recent work and check out their reviews online, do they have current or past customers that will vouch for them?
Do your research before engaging with a website design company to make sure you’re confident they will deliver the best outcome for your business.
Anything else to consider when choosing a Web Design Company?
Web Design Companies offer so many different packages so it’s important to know what you get for your investment.
It may seem like a great value with promises of ‘Unlimited Pages for XYZ’ but it’s worth asking what the conditions are first. If it seems too good to be true, it may well be!
There’s also Web Design Companies that will add on excessive mark ups.
Get a breakdown of cost so you can see what they’re charging upfront.
Some Web Design Companies will set a low price point and add on extra charges for every little item.
Make sure your web design quote is upfront and complete – so you know exactly what you’re getting. Are you locked in, is there a contract – do you have to stay with them once the websites complete? What if you sell your business, do you physically own the website?
How much will they charge you to change something on your website – what if you need to change the text you supply during the design process – you can find some will charge you $240+ for a simple ‘revision to content’.
This can all quickly blow out an initial Cheap Web Design offer and turn it into a very sour experience.
Getting your business online should be a great time and an enjoyable process, just make sure to ask any questions you want at the start, any good web design company will take the time to answer anything you’d like to ask.
