When you’re choosing the web design company that you’re going to work with, there are so many things to consider. You have to make a wise conscience decision because a website is a long term decision. Most web designers don’t like to work with other designers sites. Mainly because every design company has its protocols and method. Walking into a job that someone else has started is very difficult. So most designers would prefer to just start it over. So let’s get to the important Questions To Ask A Web Designer!
What Platform Will My Website Be On?
The platform your website is of the most utter importance. There are many great options for you to choose from. We believe that WordPress is the absolute best option. The versatility and power that you can build into a WordPress website are unparalleled to any other platform. With extremely powerful plugins such as WooCommerce, you can build in powerful e-commerce with online checkout integrated. You can do just about anything with a WordPress site, if there’s not a plugin already built for your needs, we can actually custom code a plug in for you.
Do you offer Web Hosting?
This will vary from company to company. Some companies don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of selling hosting. Here at UltraWeb, we offer web hosting and actually prefer to have our clients on our servers. This facilitates any tech support that we may need to provide in the future and allows us to make FTP changes easily. Our servers are extremely secure and have a 99.99% uptime.
What will you need me to supply in order to make the website?
Many companies require that you provide every single word of content and provide every image that will be used on the site. We prefer if you can provide content for one simple reason, you know your business better than we do. But if you prefer that we write the content, we have content writers on staff that will do the industry research and write top notch SEO optimized content.
Can I edit the website content and will you provide training?
The best part about a WordPress Website is that you can easily edit text and even pictures with extreme ease. If your website is an e-commerce website with WooCommerce it’s extremely simple to add new products and edit existing product. We have videos that are very easy to understand so that you can get trained on your new website. On top of this, we also offer what we call blocks of time. You can pre-buy 10-hour blocks of our time and use it at your leisure. The best part is instead of paying $95 an hour you’ll only pay $75 an hour. These blocks never expire and you can use them for absolutely any of our services.
Will my website show up on the first page of Google the day after it’s ready?
The simple answer is… You absolutely can! Thanks to Google AdWords. With Google AdWords, you can be on the first page the very next day, but the catch is you’ll be paying for every single click. Now if you want to be there naturally or organically then you’ll have to be ready for a long term investment. But this investment could have a massive ROI. Our biggest and most successful client has been doing SEO for over 10 years and today rank nationally for massive keywords. Because of this, they do more than ten million dollars a year! The best way to think of “Natural” SEO is that if you don’t do it, your business will be paying for clicks forever.
Do you do periodic backups of the website?
Yes, we absolutely can. For a small fee added to your monthly hosting plan, we will backup your site daily! This means that if for any reason something happens and the site goes down, we have the backups to make sure that your website can be back up within just a couple hours. Giving peace of mind and allowing you to run your business.
