Frequently Asked QuestionsAnswers to the most common questions we get about our website design & support services and our company here at Websites For Anything.
The Website Design & Build Process
Can you show me some websites you’ve done?
We sure can! You can see tons of our latest work, updated monthly, on our Website Portfolio page.
How long until my website is ready?
What’s included in a website project?
As part of your website project, we will:
- Design your site based on our Website Design Dialogue with you and several Client Reviews.
- Build out content pages using your wording or (optionally) our writers.
- Perform foundational SEO (that many other’s skip!)
- Launch your website on our Professional Hosting.
- Provide ongoing Advanced Support and more!
When your project is complete you will have a world-class, professional website – working for your business 24/7. Of course there are a lot of details in between each of these steps – and we take care of all of them. No hassle for you!
Will we come up first on Google?
An important part of our Launch Process is "foundational SEO" so that search engines like Google will see your website code is doing the right stuff.
Getting to the top of page one on Google is hard, expensive work. In most industries you need to spend at least $18,000 per year, every year, to even compete for a page 1 spot. If you have the budget for that, great!
The reality is that micro-businesses survive and thrive on word-of-mouth and referrals. What you should be doing is building a website that helps you connect with and capture new referrals. One that supports all the things you already do! For a micro-business, a relationship website is a more practical fit than rolling the dice on SEO. That's what we specialize in - relationship websites.
For more on this important subject please check out a blog article we wrote about where your website will rank on Google.
Which package is right for me?
- If you need desperately need to be found on Google Maps, choose Google Starter.
- If more reviews would help your business grow, choose Google Starter.
- If your business is heavily built on once or twice a year recurring customers, choose Relationship Builder.
- If you can’t benefit from, or are already taking care of the first 3 points, Social Media is the next step.
Of course, these are generalizations and your mileage may vary. For a more detailed answer, please visit our blog post “Which website package is right for me.” Or, get in touch with our team and we’ll be happy to help!
How long is the agreement?
For a more in-depth answer, please visit our blog article “How Long Is The Contract?”
How many pages can I have on my website?
We will create your initial pages for you as part of your project. You can add hundreds or thousands of pages from there (and we’ll be happy to help.)
Is there anything I need to do before we first meet?
In fact, we have a carefully curated plan for that first conversation. We want to make sure we understand your business and exactly what you’re looking for, so we can give you the best product and a rock solid price. We call that our Website Design Dialogue. We will use our Website Design Dialogue to make sure we understand your needs and your goals. If you like, you can fill out that new website questionnaire right now.
If you want to get a jump start, here are a few things you could do (completely optional though!):
What if I don't like the design?
We also do a lot to prevent this from ever happening. Here’s a few things:
- We begin every new relationship with our extensively curated and constantly updated Website Design Dialogue meeting to ensure we understand your goals, vision, and style.
- Your project is led start-to-finish by a Client Representative whose JOB is to make sure you LOVE your website!
- Each project starts with a detailed Kickoff Meeting where we go over sites you like, uncover the reasons, discuss the layout together, and more!
- Each website design package includes meetings where we review the design together to get your feedback.
We’re confident we can design a website that you’ll love! If we don’t get it right the first time, we’ll work really hard to understand what we missed and build a website that meets your expectations.
What do you need from me as your client?
- Be honest. Tell us what you like or dislike. Share with us your goals, dreams, concerns, ideas, and opinions.
- Be communicative. If you need more guidance, let us know. If you need more time, ask for it. If you’re unclear on a request, speak up. Respond to calls and emails in a timely manner, so we can help you better.
- Be proactive, especially with content. Schedule dedicated time to work on writing your content and organizing your images.
