What is a Content Management System?

A content management system (CMS) is online, web-based software that helps you write and manage the content (text, images, and media) for your website. The CMS on which we design our sites is called WordPress.


Why Do You Use WordPress?

Why Do You Use a Premium WordPress Template?

A premium template makes the design process more cost effective and they speed up your site development than if you were to custom code the entire website from scratch.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of free WordPress templates available…however…they come with a myriad of problems in their coding, security, and design. We will only build your site on a premium (paid) WordPress template. This ensures the template is well coded and continually revised to ensure security and compliance with the latest versions of WordPress software.


Are Your Sites Responsive Designed?

The WordPress templates we build on integrate contemporary CSS coding that ensures that your site is “responsive”. This simply means that the code in the site will automatically adjust the screen size, menus, and images so that your website will display well on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.


What is the Site Maintenance/Security/Backup All About?

It is all about security.
Backup: We add this set of features/service on to every site we build. This ensures that your site is automatically backed up every day so that should something happen and your site becomes infected with a virus or it gets hacked, we have a backup from which we can reinstall.
Firewall: In addition to the firewall that is in place on the hosting server, we install a secondary firewall around your website. You can never have too much protection against hackers!
Site Maintenance: We do all the heavy lifting for you. We take care of keeping your site compliant and updated with the latest versions of WordPress, your template, and all software plugins and modules. You never have to worry – we do all the updates for you!


Why Do I Need a Domain Name?

Every website on the internet has its own unique domain name or website address. If you have not already purchased one, we can take care of that registration process for you and we will do all the setup to sync it with our servers to get your site online.


How Long Will It Take To Build My Website?

An average website will take anywhere from 6-9 weeks to build, depending on how quickly you provide content and feedback.


What Is SEO?

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the process where we code your site with keywords and phrases, create an XML sitemap, and register it with Google, Bing, and Yahoo so that your site will be more easily found when people go searching for your product or service.


What is Google Analytics?

Google Analytics is free software that provides you with statistics on the number of visitors and the activity they perform on your website. We will set up your Google Analytics account for you and sync it with your website. Then you will receive a PDF via email every month so you can see how effectively you are reaching people.
