It is an important decision to make and there are Frequently Asked Questions for Website Design that clients need the answers for. Below I have answered some of the more frequent questions I get asked
I love designing websites. It keeps me creative and I enjoy figuring out different aspects of a website.
Red Poppy, me, and you the client need to chat about your needs for a website.
What do I need to start with your website?
As a customer I need you to give me what type of website and the funicaltilty you need from a website. Let me know if your website is just getting your name out there. Or do you need a directory service? Or a booking calendar for a hotel or restaurant. Or perhaps you need a subscription site. And the list goes on.
So decide what functionality you want your website to have is top priority.
You may just want a simple informative site. But if you want something extra, you may need a paid subscription to be added to your site. Yes you can give the free part of the addition/plugin ago. But it won’t give you the full functionality that you would like.
Frequently Asked Questions for Website Design: Another question would be who writes the content?
No, I am not an expert in what you do. I don’t know the ins and outs.
I will use the information you give me and optimize it for search engines with headings, change words etc.
How long does it take to complete my website?
It is a give and take here. I can complete 3 pages in a few days. But I will give you two revisions to make changes along the way. As long as the designer and the client have a quick turn around we can get it done quickly.
This is not the same for e-commerce sites. This depends on how many products you need loaded. My standard is 10 products and I will train you on loading your own products. Then it is up to you. An e-commerce site needs more work than a straightforward site. But it can take about a month or more if you want products loaded on to the site.
I offer 20min free maintenance with my hosting, what does this entail?
This entails checking on the website, and making sure everything is up to date.
I can offer further maintenance or management of your site if need be. See here.
