What is the process of getting a website through your company?

Initial Contact. When we first talk, it is usually required that we schedule a meeting to get some in depth details about a project. The meetings can be held over the phone, through video conference (via internet), or in person (preferably).

First Meeting. If you live in the area of Minneapolis or St Paul, the meeting will typically take place at a coffee shop or something similar in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. During our first meeting, we talk about things like who you are, what you do, and what a website will be able to accomplish for you. Then, we come up with some design specifications, a list of domain names, e-mail accounts, and graphics/content that will be needed.

Second Meeting. Before our second meeting, I will have created some designs for you to look at. You can pick through the ones you like and critique it as much as you like. Then, when we meet for the second time, I will have a proposal ready for you to look over. If you accept it, a contract will then be presented for you to accept. Once accepted, I will request a down payment of 50% of the agreed upon price.

Third Meeting. I will build the website between our second and third meeting. Before the third meeting takes place, we communicate throughout the development of the website before it is completed. This gives you the change to critique it, present content, photos, videos, etc, and let me know what else needs to be done. Our third meeting will conclude our business deal and tie up any loose ends or concerns with the website. I will also request the final payment for the website at our third meeting if other arrangements have not been made.

Future maintenance and web services. After everything has been completed, I do offer additional services and a life-time warranty of the services I have provided. If, for some reason by my fault, if the website malfunctions or goes awry, I will fix it free of charge. I can also make changes to the website upon request at an additional cost.

How long does it take for a website to be completed?

It depends on the scope of the project. Small brochure-type websites can be built within a day or two, while bigger websites which contain dynamic features can take anywhere from a few weeks to a month or more. E-commerce websites typically take the longest to build as there are many factors which must be considered.

What is included with the design of a website?

The design of a web site includes a domain name with e-mail accounts. A web page design service comes along with plenty of options for flexibility and power with a lot of different applications serving specific needs such as social media, e-commerce, engagement models, and more.

What is included in your SEO services?

Search engine optimization is best defined as creating quality content on websites to pursue higher ranked listings with search engines for targeted keywords that a person might search for. This service is offered with webmaster tools to track current SEO efforts along with Google Analytics to track where visitors are coming from.

Do you do logo design? What about other graphics?

We do logo design and help our clients find stock photos and create new graphics for their websites. We help choose the graphics and photos based upon the image our clients would like to present to their website visitors.

Can I move my website with another design company down the road?

Absolutely. If at any time you would like to move your account with a new company, we will be there to assist you and the new company in doing that.

I have a website through another design company. Can you transfer the domain and e-mail to a new host?

Absolutely. If you would like to transfer your domains and e-mail addresses to us, or require the help of transferring over a domain to somewhere else, we can help you with that.

What type of websites have you built?

E-commerce, service-based business websites, non-profit based websites, and blogs. We use a variety of technologies to help our clients with their needs. Whether those needs are content management systems, customer relationship management, or E-commerce platforms that enable clients to manage their online store front.

Can you design my website even though I'm located out of state?

Yes, we can do business strictly online if you'd like. Otherwise we are located in Minnesota in the Twin Cities area. If you are out of state we can set up a meeting via phone, skype or messenger service.

What other services do you provide?

Other services include copy writing, web marketing, and customer engagement models.
