Frequently Asked Questions

What can a professional website design company do for me?

The answer to this question is neither short nor easy. With a little research and thought you can find hundreds of reasons, but there are a few general statements that may help you realize your needs. First a professionally designed website can reach millions of people that might not otherwise be available to you. Second, customers can view products, services, or whatever you want to share from the comfort of their own home. No matter what type of business you are in, there are ways to grow on the web!

 

Why does it matter how it looks, as long as it works?

When you recieve a visitor to your site, they will instantly perceive the quality of your services or products. The first impression a customer or potential customer gets depends on the appearance of your website. A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing and easy to navigate. You are marketing yourself and your business to the world over the Internet and it is important to show your best.

 

I don't think a website will do anything for me, am I right?

No, many people overlook the various products, services, or business processes they can include on a website. Any communication or interactions that happen within your business can be made easier and more efficient by the web. Your business will save money and time while appealing to a much greater audience, the world.

 

I have heard that my website can be a place to help my employees do their jobs, is this true?

While most businesses view the Internet as an opportunity to expand their sales through traditional e-commerce, few people are aware of the opportunities of increasing efficiency and reducing expenses. Placing business processes, especially those done daily, on the Internet is possible for all types of businesses.

 

What is a website architecture?

It's something that will help us visualize all your website sections. This its very helpful as it will help the development process. You as the owner, will know what areas your website will cover; a web designer will know exactly what pages he needs to build and the content developer (writer) will know what content he needs to build for each specific areas.

 

What is a page layout?

Page layout is the geometry of a page. It will help us to define how many regions will appear and how they are visually organized.

 

Why we need to define website architecture?

Building a website without the website architecture its like building a house without a blueprint. We need to write on paper your ideas with our knowledge and suggestions before we start coding. We'll then code as planned. Otherwise imagine how difficult it might be for an architect to add or remove columns to a house and how expensive it might also be for you to pay for materials and resources each time the architect add or remove a new column. When we keep things organized it helps the process to get it complete quickly.

 

Do Flash movies affect my Search Engine rankings?

In theory Google can index Flash movies, but we don't think Flash movies/content get indexed very well. With things being as competitive as they are right now for keyword /key-phrase optimization we don't recommend using them. However, if Flash animation is important to you and you're up to the challenge, go for it.

 

Why is validated code important when designing a website?

There's a lot of competition to get good spots in the search engines for some specific keywords or key-phrases, so proper html syntax and a clean code help toward better rankings. Let's say we have two competing sites, both are suitable for the top spot and the search engine has a tough time deciding who to put first. Chances are that the validated site with proper syntax will be the winner. Validation of the html code on your site alone will certainly not guarantee or secure you a high rating, but as with so many other things it will help and might even be the contributing factor to get you across the line.

 

Why are Privacy Policies and Terms of Use important for a website?

People who visit your website deserve to know what you're doing or what you will do with the information you ask from them online. Respect that privilege and tell them why you're asking for some personal or business information on your website. Serious people do serious things. Terms of Use are the rules people should know to navigate your website. It usually contains information about price and/or content changes on your website, it must advise people that information on your website might change without having to inform all your visitors about those changes and that you're the owner so you set the rules.
