How long will it take to design, develop, and optimize my website?

For many projects, designing, developing, and optimizing your website may take between 2 and 3 months from discovery to launch. Some are quicker and some take more time.

The design and development process depends on your project’s complexity and unique requirements.

Can I update the website on my own once it’s launched?

Yes, you’ll be able to update your high-performance website on your own once it’s launched.

You should always be in control of your web assets before, during, and after development.

However, if you don’t have the time or technical know-how to update your site, we’ll be available to answer questions and provide customized solutions and ongoing support via our comprehensive Website Care Plans. 

Will my website be optimized for mobile devices?

Yes, in line with the latest accessibility guidelines, your website will be fully optimized for mobile devices as well as tablets, laptops, and desktops.

Can you manage complex websites that require third-party integration?

Yes, we love solving complex web challenges and third-party integration such as e-commerce, memberships, and event management features.

Our WordPress powers cover a range of customizable e-commerce solutions as well as membership and event management tools to suit your needs. 

How much does a custom website cost?

It depends on the website. All websites are custom-designed to fit your business, your users, and your workflow.

Custom-designed websites are priced on a variety of factors, including size, complexity, design needs, custom programming, content, and strategy. Most custom sites start at around $10,000.

If you’re interested in our web design services, please tell us about your project for an estimate.

What does it cost to make improvements or add custom functionality to my existing site?

Of course, the cost will depend on the project scope. If the scope of your project is well-defined, we can usually provide a rough project estimate quickly.

If the scope of the project is less well-defined, we’ll either suggest some paid discovery to help scope the project, or recommend purchasing a block of retainer of hours based on a rough estimate of the known project scope. We’ll then work with you to evaluate and prioritize the most valuable updates to make your websites work better for you and your users.

Tell us about your project for an estimate.

What if I need e-commerce?

We love e-commerce sites and are experts in creating effective selling sites powered by WooCommerce and event management plugins like Event Espresso and The Events Calendar, to simpler solutions like donations or simple event registration forms using Gravity Forms.

I need custom functionality for this plugin . . .

We can create and customize the functionality of all sorts of plugins and themes.

Some of our favorite customizations are for WooCommerce, Event Espresso, The Events Calendar, and Gravity Forms.

How involved will I have to be in my website creation or customization? What will I have to do?

We won’t kid you: putting together an effective website is a lot of work.

First, we’ll need your help getting to know your business, what makes it unique, and how the website will figure into your daily operations.

We ask a lot of questions, and we listen closely.

We also ask our customers to be involved in strategy, design, copywriting, and imagery decisions.

Some customers write and submit their own content and rely on us to edit and webify their text. We also offer copywriting services if you need help creating content.
