How long will it take for my website to be done?
Timeframe varies depending on the project, so I will discuss your deadline with your from the start and I will always meet a deadline that is promised.
I will get your website completed (and live) as quickly as possible after I have all the information I need from you.
Average turnaround after I have all of the info 3-4 weeks.
How much input will I have into the design of my website?
Working with a freelance designer means you will be part of the decision-making process as much or as little as you want. And it doesn't have to be complicated. #pinkypromise
How much will it cost?
I know when you are looking for a designer to create a simple website you want to know how much it's going to cost. I offer fixed pricing so there are no nasty surprises for you! I will provide a full quotation before I commence so you know what the cost will be.
What is website hosting and do I need it?
Websites are hosted or stored, on special computers called servers. When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Without hosting, no-one can see your website! So yes you need it.
What is SEO? Explain it to me like I'm your 62 year-old Uncle
SEO is Search Engine Optimisation. It's the name given to the things we do to OPTIMIZE your website in a way that helps it to be found by search engines (like GOOGLE). It's super complicated and somewhat secretive (as nobody really knows the absolute formula to how to rank on the top of Google). But there are some basic rules to follow and settings to implement to at least get started, and help out with getting your site found in search.
SEO is a specialist area and using this as your main marketing strategy requires an SEO expert who would work on your site on an ongoing basis. But don't panic! You can do other things to market your business, such as social media ads and other organic traffic building.
What about website aftercare + website maintenance?
I will build your site on a third-party platform such as WIX, Shopify or Squarespace (depending on your needs).
This enables you to take complete control of making updates quickly and easily (if you want to).
You will have complete ownership of your site which means you have full control. I offer optional training sessions at the end of the project to show you the basics on how to make updates and you will be on your way!
If DIY is not for you, aftercare packages are available.
