My Web Design Process
Every web designer has their own process. I have refined my process to be very efficient and provide excellent and results for my clients. What it comes down to is really good communication, honesty and experience. I work really hard to listen to my clients and understand in their words what it is that they want to build. I then advised them on best web design practices as well as the pros and cons if they choose to deviate from those best web design practices because ultimately it is your website and the client is always right. As far as the actual process of building the website I use the rapid application development method which never requires any long meetings and continuously improves and refines your website for excellent results.
Web Design Budget
I have been running my own business since 2003. Like any small business I know what it was like to struggle in the beginning. I always treat my client’s budget like it were my own trying to never waste money or time. I know that when my clients are successful I am successful. My goal is to always be the best value in web design even when compared to international web design companies. Since I have a low overhead and do all the work myself I still haven’t found a web design company that can compete with my value.
Web Design Timeline
I manage around 80 clients monthly. In order to do that well I use a project manager, plan well and always finish my work on time. The truth is I usually have to wait on my clients not them wait for me and that’s okay because I’m here to help you and work on your schedule.
I do my very best to not waste your time. If you need to invest too much time in building your website then you’re getting pulled away from dealing with other aspects of your business and we know your time is important. I know what questions to ask and how to make the design process fast and easy for you. I have a flexible schedule, provide online meetings, video tutorials and I’m always available in person, on the phone, text and of course email.
Best Value in Web Design
I take pride in everything I do and give 110% for each of my clients. I’m not a fortune 500 company but if you compare my work to other web development agencies Green by Design Marketing will usually cost 70% less and still build a better quality site. My average budget is from $500 to $1200. Some other companies that I have been compared to start at $10,000 minimum to build a website.
Website Support You Can Count On
I received phone calls every week from companies that their web designer, web developer or marketing company either isn’t answering their phone or will no longer make changes to their website once it’s built. I think that is completely wrong. As long as you will have me I will support your website and your business. I charge $50 per month which includes hosting on my dedicated server and support. I do everything from security updates and patches to helping you understand your website report such as Google analytics or Google Webmaster tools. I am constantly updating myself with new technologies so whatever help you need with your website I can most likely help you. If you don’t have your own in-house web developer or online marketing director it’s probably the best $50 a month you’ll spend.
Strategic Web Design for the Future
Some things knowledge is enough others were required wisdom. To be a Webmaster requires experience because some things can only be understood through experience. I have had the good fortune to build many websites over my career and work with many brilliant developers and designers who have helped me improve myself. When we talk for the first time I know the questions asked and how to help you build a website that is going to serve you in the future. It doesn’t mean you will never need to rebuild your website. It does mean that we will stay on schedule, your website will do what you wanted to and you won’t have surprise expenses at the end of the website launch. With my experience I have not gone over my estimate in over seven years.
Building the Website Your Business Needs
Many of the times that of rebuilding a website when I ask the owner there likes and dislikes of their website they tell me they don’t really like anything about it. That the web designer just did whatever he wanted without much input from the company. When we are going to talk about your website and what your business needs from your website I’m going to get a clear picture of how it should work and how it should look. I am also going to get your input on the website throughout the building process to make sure it’s exactly what you wanted. I will say here that some business owners do overthink their website. It is important to build for user expectations and to give the client the information that they are looking for not necessarily what you want to tell them. But like I said before I will advise you and the choice is ultimately yours.
Actionable Website Reporting
Are you getting business from your website? When I say that I don’t mean how many visits are you getting to your website, I mean are you actually getting business from people finding you online. Many business owners that I talked to don’t know if their website is helping their business at all. By creating useful reports as well as asking the actual customers either over the phone or on your intake forms how they found you. You will be able to find out which people are converting to customers. Are they coming from a Google search, if so what was their search? Did they come from social media? Was it free or paid advertising? Are you paying for Google ads and not getting any business from it? If you’re going to spend your time and money on the website and/or advertising you should make sure it’s working.
Marketing Your Website
Some business owners think that once you build your website you will suddenly have a ton of business. Sadly that is not the case if not I would be a millionaire. Once your website is built I will submit your site map to Google as well as other search engines. But that is just the start, there are many ways to market your website to get relevant traffic which will ultimately convert into customers.
