6. Do we have to have a meeting in connection with the website
Usually you would meet in person once with the web designer, however it is
not absolutely necessary. Many websites are completed with contact via
email, and/or telephone. Throughout the design process, I will email you a
private link, so that you can watch your site design as it progresses, and
contact with changes or suggestions as necessary.
7. Do I have to have a local Website designer?
We can create websites for clients anywhere. By using email and
the internet, it is possible to communicate, and for the client
to review everything along the way, so that the end result is
exactly what is wanted. A review of our portfolio shows websites
we have designed for clients in many parts of Newfoundland, as
well as Nova Scotia, North Carolina USA, New York USA, Alberta,
Greece, Brazil etc.
8. How long does it take for a site to be designed and completed?
Normally this is dictated by the client. It depends upon the size and
complexity of the site. When designing a site, an anticipated launch date is
noted, and we strive to meet that deadline. Generally most sites can be
finalized in 3-4 weeks.
9. Will my Website be available on Search Engines?
Your website will include keywords and meta tags with search
terms relative to your specific website. Your site with a
related site-map will be submitted to all major search engines.
