I’ve put together a list of the most commonly asked questions to help you better understand my web design process and services. If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for, feel free to reach out to me directly. As a one-man show, I’m always happy to chat and provide personalized answers to your questions.
How much does a new website cost?

There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components.  I design and develop custom websites specifically for your business.

How long does it take to build a website?

On average, websites will launch 4 to 6 weeks from project start, but that is up to you. The most common reason for a delay in launch is not providing me with your content timely.

The functionality needs also play a role i.e. more complex websites take more time to develop.

Please let me know if you are trying to meet a specific deadline so we can explore the best options for you.

I already have a domain name. Can I use it?

Yes, this is actually preferred as it allows you the freedom to take it with you should you find that you are dissatisfied with my services.

I will simply port the domain to my servers and manage it on your behalf.

Do I need separate web hosting?

No,  Your hosting is included in all my plans. 

Do you offer email accounts with your web hosting?

Yes, but my hosting company only allows 2Gb of storage.  I recommend using Google Workspace or Microsoft 365.  Both services provide great email hosting as well as direct integrations with office software, collaboration tools, and file storage.   I personally use Google Workspace for this ( domain. 

Can you revise my current website or finish my incomplete website?

No. My process is specifically designed for the websites that I build, however, if there are elements of your existing website that you wish to retain we can explore recreating them on your new website.

What types of businesses can you help?

I’m a great fit for businesses who provide a service for consumers, operate in a local or regional markets. I have done websites anywhere from local AC repair businesses to multi-million dollar medical supply companies.

Do you build eCommerce websites ?

Yes,  With WordPress.  I have had the best results using WooCommerce.  It offers plenty of add-ons (at additional cost) to ensure you are ready to sell your products online.  

Do your provide search engine optimization (SEO)?

I include on-site technical search engine optimization that ensures search engines can easily read and rank your website. For some businesses, this is enough to reach your desired search rank. Others may need additional services like Search Engine Marketing (SEM). 

I can be thought of as a General Practitioner who focuses on overall SEO health. Depending on your competition and market, you may need to work with a search engine optimizer that specializes in your field to meet your goals. I am more than happy to make a referral for specialized services, if needed.

Do you outsource your projects or send work overseas?

Nope, it’s just me.  You’ll get 1 on 1 attention from start to finish. 

Do you offer a satisfaction guarantee?

Yes..  on the web design.  That’s why I don’t collect a dime up front until we launch the site.  If you’re unhappy with my service for any reason, you are free to terminate your contract at anytime.   My service also includes on-going maintenance to keep your website running in the same or better condition as the day it launched.

Do you only create WordPress websites?

Pretty much…. WordPress is a great content management system that now powers more than 43% of the web.  I have no interest in dealing with a Squarespace or Wix site.

Do I have to be local to work with you?

Nope! I work with clients all over the US and a few overseas.

Will my website be mobile-friendly?

Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly website is more important than ever! I’ll  ensure your website looks great on all devices.

Do you write the content for the site?

No, that is on you. You are the expert on your business, so it’s usually best if it comes from you.
