I know you have questions about the web design process and how to get started.

Here are the common ones.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

How much will it cost?

I know when you are looking for a designer to create a website for your small business 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.

How long will it take for my website to be done?

Timeframe really 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 including files, images and business details 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. I want you to be 100% happy with the final product and will work with you to make sure you are!

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 (true story). 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 of marketing these days, and using this as your main marketing strategy requires an SEO expert who would monitor and adjust your SEO campaign on an ongoing basis. There are over 200 so called 'ranking factors' within the Google ranking algorithm and it's not a set and forget situation. It's something that needs to be monitored and adjusted on an ongoing basis to really see those results.

But don't panic! You can do other things to market your business, such as social media ads and other organic (free) traffic building - it just takes time and some knowhow. I implement the appropriate on page and on site level SEO optimizations to get you started, submit your site for indexing to Google and make your site SEO friendly.

What about website aftercare + website maintenance?

I will build your site on a third-party platform such as WIX, Shopify or Kajabi (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.
