Your website will be finished within days of this first meeting, in most cases.
What happens to my old website if I get a new one?
You can delete the site, asking the current hosting and developer to remove it from the web. Most likely you’ll use the same domain name as your current site leaving your current website in the virtual heap of Internet space. You can also keep it and have us link it to the new site.

This is entirely up to you. While we encourage your participation in your custom website design, it isn’t necessary. We carefully listen to your needs are so you are satisfied with the end result.

We find that most people cannot get their creative juices flowing until they actually see something; that’s okay, and an expected part of the development process.
What is the turnover time to complete my website?
This depends upon how quickly you can provide any and all information necessary for us to create your site. Graphics and photo editing can slow down the website development process, but never a delay. Your specific ideas and vision must also be accounted for. A website can usually be completed within days and up to a couple of weeks after payment is received. Note that many projects have exceeded this time and many have been completed much sooner. What’s important is that we work together to develop the best website that meets your standards and requirements.
How do I know people are viewing my site?
We provide site counters for each website. Remember that you will receive business offline as a direct result of the information obtained by the customer from your site. Your website will become the most important single piece of marketing in your business plan yet the cost will be far less than most of your current advertising.

SEO isn’t cheap but as with all our products, we’ll beat the competition on price. We do everything possible to offer all our clients “back door web optimization”. SEO and search engine ranking is not an exact science and any SEO company guaranteeing results is not on the up-and-up. Please visit our E-Marketing page to find out more.
Do you provide e-marketing?
Yes. This is often a very affordable, effective means for marketing and driving traffic to your website. It can also indirectly affect your site’s web ranking in a positive manner. Please visit our Internet Presence/SEO page to find out more.
Does my website provide exposure on its own?
No and this is unfortunately a common misconception leading to stress between website developers and the client. That brand new company vehicle isn’t going to do a thing for you unless you post a sign on it. Advertise. Your new restaurant will sit barren until you post a sign and some type of attractive banners on it. Advertise. You must advertise your website with the sole purpose of driving traffic to it. Where else can you give your customers the best information available 24/7, from the comfort of anywhere they’d like to be?
What should I do to market my site?
You can cut your advertising budget in half immediately yet increase business by concentrating on driving traffic to your website.
