Web Design FAQs
How do I find an affordable web designer?
Look for a company that has very low overhead and does not require a fancy office. The smaller marketing agency that has taken on fewer operating expenses will be able to offer services to you that are much more affordable.
How much does a new website cost?

Why do you only create WordPress websites?
WordPress is the industry standard for content management systems and has the largest network of developers and support available. WordPress now powers more than 30% of the web. WordPress is flexibile, secure, and easy to learn. WordPress is the best choice for a user friendly interface that you can easily manage.
Do you outsource your website design work?
We do not outsource any of our projects. We only take on what we can handle. In the more than 20 years we’ve been designing websites, we have never outsourced any of our work to another company or to freelancers out of state or abroad.
Who will update my website when it’s finished?
We build websites that our clients can manage. WordPress websites give you the ability to take control of your new website. We provide hands on training so you can manage and update content on your new website.
Do I need a website that’s mobile friendly?
Yes, especially since Google is focused on mobile first. Websites we develop are fully responsive and look great on all devices. There is no charge extra for a mobile friendly website – it now comes standard.
Where should my website be hosted?
WordPress need a Linux server with PHP 7 capabilities. We are a reseller of CenturyLink hosting and our plans easily support these requirements. Our preference is to manage your hosting with our reseller plan. This makes it much more affordable and offers far more services for the price. However, you are not obligated to host with us. If you prefer your own third party host such as GoDaddy, we can work within your parameters; we just won’t have as much control when it comes to control panel settings and timely support.
What payment options do you offer for website projects?
We accept checks or online payments can be made with a credit card. All website projects require a down payment to start which is typically 50% with the final 50% payment due before new website launch. If the scope of a project is larger, we will break payments into three installments of 40%|30%|30%.
What is search engine optimization?
SEO is how we maximize the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine. We use techniques that make your website authoritative and credible in the eyes of search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo). Your website needs to be easy to find in the search results someone is making.
Will my website be optimized for the search engines?
Yes, we develop all websites with search engine optimization techniques for today’s web. It’s our obligation to our clients to make sure websites are visible online. Websites are 100% SEO friendly.
Do I need social media marketing for my business?
Since social media is one of the fastest growing forms of digital marketing and your activity affects your search engine optimization efforts, the answer is yes.
