WEB DESIGN WITH YOUR BUSINESS IN MIND

STRATEGY

We’ll ask focused questions to get to know your business, where it’s going, and what image your clients will respond to. We’ll build a unique plan that shows clients your value to them, and creates a strong desire to buy your products & services. We’ll research the competition, look at inspiration, and partner with you to create a design direction.

DESIGN

You’ll see multiple phases of design work. We’ll keep what you like, and improve upon the rest. We’ll combine strong content with your approved designs and develop the final project that speaks directly to your target audience.

TEST

It’s not enough to just assume that branding works. You’ll want assurance that the finished result truly works as intended. We’ll refine the overall look and function of the site through browser and user tests. Based on user feedback, we’ll celebrate the positive, and adjust anything that could work better.

frequently asked questions

WHAT PLATFORM ARE YOUR WEBSITES BUILT ON?


We use the WIX platform or WordPress, depending on your business needs.

WIX provides everything you need for a complete website — the builder, the web space and a domain — all in one service.

WordPress may be ideal if you need a website with more pages and want more customization options.




HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HOST A WEBSITE?


A WIX account runs between $14 - $25 per month. There’s also an annual cost of a domain name which is roughly $10 - $20 per year. With a yearly WIX account, the domain is free for the first year.

A WordPress website requires a separate hosting provider, which ranges from about $3 - $14 per month.




DOES WIX OFFER THE SAME SEO BENEFITS AS OTHER PLATFORMS?


Yes! WIX has been recognized as being equally effective for SEO.

There is some debate and even several misconceptions about one website builder being more effective for SEO than another. It’s important to be informed with the facts. SEO does not solely rely on what platform a website is built on. Whether we’re talking about WIX, Squarespace, WordPress or any other platform, the selection of a website builder will only have a marginal impact on search engine ranking.

SEO is most influenced by the quality of your content and getting authority websites to link to your page. When you work with us, we make sure that your site is properly formatted for SEO.




WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOUR TEAM?


You’ve seen countless websites and brand images that don’t measure up. You’ve worked hard on your business, and you want branding that meets the highest standards.

We combine good taste, a strong sense of business, and the most current technical knowledge to meticulously craft your brand to look it's very best.

Success demands it: a thorough understanding of your business, products, services and clients. We believe that effective branding requires viewing the experience from your client’s perspective, asking the right questions, and transforming problems and concerns into solutions and opportunities.

Our Creative Director brings 20 years of experience in the corporate world. She has a passion that spans the worlds of branding, design, retail, luxury goods, fashion, customer service, event planning, coaching and personal development. Her support team shares that passion.

You’ll receive an email that details each of the project’s stages to let you know exactly what to expect over the coming weeks.




HOW MUCH DO I PAY?


50% of your plan price along with your signed contract will be due up front. This reserves your project on the calendar and makes it unavailable to others.

The remaining 50% will be due at the end of your project, right before launch.




ONCE THE WEBSITE IS DESIGNED, HOW DO I MAKE CHANGES?


Your business will grow and change over time, and the content of your site will need updating.

You have 2 options to make any updates :

  1. Make updates on your own as needed. A huge benefit for entrepreneurs when using WIX, is that changes can be made and published immediately, with no lengthy development delay. At the end of your project, you’ll have all of the info you need to log in to your account and make adjustments.

  2. Hire us. We’ll keep your site up-to-date and looking great. Our hourly rate is $100 per hour.




CAN YOU ADD A CUSTOM EMAIL WITH MY DOMAIN NAME?


After you're subscribed to a plan, and your domain name is connected, WIX offers the option to get a custom mailbox through GSuite by Google Cloud. Gsuite Mailbox prices are about $5 per month.




DO YOU WORK WITH CLIENTS OUTSIDE OF RALEIGH, NC?
