serva frequently get asked questions, here’s what we say
Here at serva we get asked questions about website design, we hope it will help. Have a question that you don’t see here? Please contact us.
How much do you charge to design a website?
It’s a little like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ Obviously the more you want from a website, the more pages, the ability to do more within the website, shopping carts etc. these all add to the cost. We develop websites on average for around the $1,000 region, but they all vary. So, as we’ve said, for more extensive websites, the cost is going to go up, smaller and simpler the price is going to keep lower, but our quotes are on average well below half what most U.S. website design companies charge.
My brother in law, my nephew, a friend says that they can design my site for free or at least a lot cheaper then your company. Why shouldn’t I just let them?
Would most people be able to prepare and examine financial records, manage staff salaries etc., for a large business?
Most people can do math and there are several programs out there to help you, but if you’re honest, the answer would be no, there’s more involved to it.
Simply ask yourself if the person offering to create your website has:
- Graphic Design training and years of design experience
- Knowing how to get sites to rank well on Google
- Comprehensive knowledge of available CMS programs
- Dedication and business reputation
Your website is like buying a car. You can find a used car for $300! It may even get you where you’re going, but you know it will eventually need repairs and probably gallons of oil to keep it on the road. You will spend more time and money getting that car fixed than if you had simply bought a more reliable one in the first place.
So, if you care about how much new business your website will bring you, have it designed professionally and save a load of time, money and hassle.
My business isn’t in your city, can you still build my website?
Our firm has developed websites for clients all over the United States & England. Distance is no problem.
How long will it take to complete my website?
Most websites are developed in only 1 to 3 weeks, but it really depends on you, the sooner you give us the information, the sooner we’ll get it done. We’re also able to create a professional site in as little as 24 hours, when immediate promotion is needed.
I already have a website. Why isn’t it listed well on Yahoo or Google?
This is because most companies can create a website, but most don’t have experience in getting those sites to rank well on search engines like Google. Even if you have the best looking website in the world, it won’t matter if people can’t find you. The key to ranking well on Google and Yahoo is to find a design company that is experienced with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). By using a variety of techniques, an experienced web design company such as Serva can improve your business exposure.
