Over time, I have answered many questions regarding website design. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions Prime Website Concepts receives on a regular basis:

 

I want to put my business online, but have no idea where to start. What will I need to do first?

Call Prime Website Concepts! I will guide you through the entire project, from securing your domain name to going live. Even if you decide to build the site yourself or hire another design company, I will give you the information you need to get started.

How much does it cost to have a website designed and developed?

Design costs vary from site to site with many determining factors. I offer for basic sites and am always happy to supply a quote to fit your individual needs. Call me at: 724-332-1792 or .

How long will it take Prime Website Concepts to build my website?

This depends on the size and type of site. A small website can be finished within a week, whereas a larger site can take a few weeks. I will always give you an accurate estimate during the quote process.

Can you use my existing logo or printed brochure in the design of my website?

Yes. I can usually get a good digital file to start with from your printer.

I have a new business and this is my first website, can you help design a logo for me?

Yes, I would be more than happy to design a logo for you!

My company is service oriented, will a website help my business?

Absolutely! A website can truly highlight the service you offer. Your potential customers can read important information you would like them to know, see pictures (before and after if appropriate for your service), read testimonials from other customers, send a quick note asking you to contact them and much more. This is something that can't be accomplished in any other form of advertising for such a small price.

What is website maintenance and why do I need it?

Website maintenance is how we refer to regular updates or changes to your website. It is important to keep your site current, correct and fresh. Simple changes from time to time will do this. For e-commerce sites, maintenance may also include price changes, removing discontinued products etc.

I have worked hard to establish my company. How much input will I have in the design of my website?

I know your website is a reflection of you and your business. I will work with you 100% to make sure your site is what YOU want.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes we do.

How does your design process work?

I start by designing a sample layout or two and publish them in a special location on the internet. I will then contact you with the url so you can view the layout designs. I respect your vision and will create more designs to show you until you are satisfied with "the look".
Once the basic layout design is decided, I start adding content - showing you page by page as we go and making any changes you require.
If you ever request changes or additional content that will affect the price you were quoted, you will be notified for approval before it is added.

Do I get a chance to view and suggest changes to my website during the design process?

Absolutely! This is YOUR web presence and I want you to be extremely happy with it.

Once my website is finished, can you help me get listed on the search engines and suggest alternative ways to promote it?

A large part of any professionally designed website involves the optimization of search terms to insure proper placement on the search engines. There are also many additional alternatives to help promote to your site, such as social networking, adwords, banner ads, print advertising etc. I want your business to grow as much as you do and am happy to help you. Once your site has gone live, there may be an additional charge for some services that you may wish to add later. It can take up to three months for your website to get listed in the search engines. Don't waste another day!

 

You may be thinking that I cannot afford a professionally built website... if that's the case there are FIVE things I want you to Know! 

1- Your website is your most affordable and effective form of advertising. All other forms of advertising are great, but your website will provide you the greatest return on investment. Check this out, if I purchase a full page ad through a local traditional newspaper (which I fully endorse) it could cost me anywhere from $40,000-$150,000 per year. I can build you a great website that will reach more customers, for the same amount of time, for significantly less!

2- A website is like hiring a full time sales person, but without the payroll headaches. Even your entry level sales associates can cost you 22,000+ a year. With nowhere near that investment you can produce your super salesman that will keep working evenings, weekends, and holidays!

3- EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR YOU ONLINE. We live in a world that does not use phone books anymore, they use internet search. If you type your name into Google right now, what shows up? Make sure you show up.

4- Display professionalism. What would you prefer to be, you@yahoo.hotmail.gmail.com or you@you.com? Having a professional business image starts with having a real name. (Those are just made up emails, but I know you get the idea!)

5- What do your customers see. Your customers are judging your business by your website, just like your judging me right now. Is your website actually telling your customers the truth about you or is it vastly outdated/homemade? Let me help you ensure that your website is up to your standards so that you are making the money you deserve.
