What is your process?
Understand and Design : I will send a questionnaire to find out more about you and your site. I will then follow that up with a phone call, email, or skype to make sure I am clear on what you are looking to gain from your site.
Build : I will then work on the build of the site. This is the technical phase, where I’ll be needing all your content and images (if you’re providing them).
Final checks : Because all my sites are mobile friendly this stage is really imporant. You get to check that you’re happy with everything, but we also do bug checks on all major devices to make sure your site looks beautiful everywhere
How much time it takes to see my site live?
Once I am ready to work on your site it usually takes 2 to 4 weeks to build. This time frame varies depending on how complex your site is and if you have everything ready to go, it came made little quick if you provide all the necessary content in time. If you are in urgency we can prioritize as special case depending on the availability of resources.

Hosting and Domain Name:
This is an annual cost, all websites have to cover. I include it in my costs so you don’t have to worry. I use a host which is designed specifically for WordPress sites. This means that your site will function well and run fast.
Frequent Back-end Updates and Backups:
Websites need to stay updated in the back-end. As new updates in back-end s/w may provide more security that prevens the site from vulnerable to attacks. To make sure that doesn’t happen its important that the back-end stays updated. This you can do by your self or you can opt for AMC with us. Which may vary depending on the type of maintenance service you may need.
Why do I have to keep running my website on latest web technologies?
- To make it mobile-friendly : Mobile web usage is growing by leaps and bounds, so you need to make sure your website can be viewed on a wide variety of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. By incorporating responsive design into your new website, you’ll be assured of reaching a larger audience than you would with a website that’s not mobile-friendly.
- To incorporate social media : If your website doesn’t feature social media in some way, you are way behind the times (and probably behind your competitors, as well). Including links to your social network profiles is the bare minimum you should include – even better is adding social sharing tools that make it easy for users to share, tweet, or pin your content. Redesigning your website can help make it easier for users to connect with you socially and spread the word about your business via their social networks.
- To add new functionality : If you want to add a blog, forums, e-commerce, or other major features or tools to your website, a redesign is probably in order. That way you can ensure that everything flows seamlessly throughout the website.
- To improve usabilityIf your site visitors can’t find what they’re looking for, they’ll leave ASAP (and they probably won’t come back for a long time). If that’s the case, you’ll definitely want a new website design that’s user-friendly and keeps your customers and prospects happy.
- To incorporate rebranding : If your business has undergone rebranding, you’ll most certainly need to redesign your website (along with your other marketing materials). And rebranding isn’t always just about a new logo and colors – it often will require an update to the content of your website, as well, so don’t forget that aspect of your website makeover.
- To keep it up-to-date : The web world is always changing, and web technology that was cool and cutting-edge a few years ago may be out-of-date today (Flash, anyone?). With a website redesign you can take advantage of the latest technology that web-savvy users expect.
- To shake things up : It happens to everyone – sometimes we just need a change. If you think your website is starting to look a little tired, chances are your site visitors think so, too. A fresh design may be just what you need to stir up a little excitement about your website.
In a world where research, shopping and purchasing are done virtually, your website is your storefront.
What are the indicators that your site is old and stale and it is time to redesign?
Few indicators that your site is old and stale and it is time to redesign:
- website cannot be viewd on mobile or tab: With nearly 50% of web traffic coming from mobile devices, your site absolutely needs to be mobile device friendly!
- A poorly designed menu navigation system.
- A site using FLASH or completely built using FLASH.
- Small pictures – left over from the days before people had high speed bandwidth and pages would load slow with large images.
- Narrow pages – your website might have developed very long back that is suitable for the olden days’ computers with very small width, which look completely disguising on present day systems.
So trying to save on a website redesign, is actually costing you money in lost customers and lost sales. Often times your website is the first impression people have of your business. And if you’re an online business, it is the only impression they get. So it is vitally important your site looks GREAT!
