Consultation and Guidance
Preparing to have a website created is often a daunting task for people. Decisions involving functionality, organic search engine results, color palettes, branding and an overall look and feel for the site can be really frustrating and confusing. Add to this the many possibilities for hosting, templates, add-on services, paid advertising, and feature rich frameworks and there’s just a lot to know.
And if all that weren’t enough, the technology industry is full of people trying to monetize everything. We talk to people every week that are paying for services they never use that were recommended by a previous web developer or a salesperson.
We always encourage people to create a wish list of what they’d like for their website. Included should be at least a couple of websites you really like. You can show these to us when we meet and point out what it is you like and what you don’t like. This saves a ton of back and forth and quickly gets us on the same page. This simple exercise will also save you money.
If you already have a website which you’d like to embellish or rebuild altogether, we always recommend an exploratory.
An exploratory works like this: We start with your wish list and go into the back end of the site to inspect the current code and look the template and design over carefully. This usually takes 2-3 hours. A comprehensive written report of our findings, along with recommendations and a proposal, is then generated and delivered to you within 48 hours.
We then will encourage you to study the report before making any decisions. Unfortunately, some of what you’d like your site to do is impossible with its current framework or making the necessary modifications would be more costly than just creating a new site altogether. Considering the number of details and importance of your personal or business website, consultation from a seasoned professional beforehand is always a good first step. If for no other reason than you learn what your options are.
We provide this type of comprehensive consultation and most of our clients come from referral.
