How long does it take to build a website?
You can expect your website to be completed within 5 business days unless otherwise outlined. Online stores (ecommerce), memberships sites amongst others require additional time.
What size companies do you produce web designs for?
We’re just as keen to work with small businesses as we are large ones, and as a local firm we’re ideally placed to understand the needs of growing organizations.
Do you redesign existing websites?
We most certainly do, however we approach redesigns carefully to ensure the project is an overall success from an ROI standpoint.
Do you work internationally?
We sure do. Video conferencing such as Zoom, and screen recording makes working with businesses anywhere in the world easy and straightforward.
Do you offer ongoing help with our new site once it’s launched?
We can help with web support and maintenance or we can will leave it to you. Avada on WordPress makes managing your website a breeze.
What does web support and maintenance include?
Our packages all include weekly updating, content and image editing, small design changes, color adjustments, to name a few. The technical aspects include weekly backups, performance optimization, on-site search optimization, content delivery network (CDN), and website and server caching.
Will my website work on smart phones and tablets as well?
Yes. More people are accessing the web via small screens and the trend will increase ten-fold in the coming year. Every website we create is mobile responsive and essential these days.
Can you help me rank high in Google?
We include basic on-site search optimization with every website. Advanced optimization is a lot more challenging and getting it wrong can affect your reputation. Our SEO experts can drive high-quality traffic to your website and have it generating real leads in no time.
Can you help with my social media?
We do not. We specialize in websites and website care and we’ve been keen to avoid becoming a “jack of all…” agency (ie: freelancer). If you’re after one of those, we’re not for you!
How much does a website cost?
“It depends on what you need…” is typically what you’re going to hear. At BOOM, we believe in creating efficient processes that save both on time and costs, while maintain a quality of standards.
Why not schedule a call with one of our account managers; we’ll know soon enough if we have a match-made-in-heaven.
Are there any other costs for my website?
There are no other fees unless you choose to take hosting elsewhere. Other than that, we always make sure we’re crystal clear from the get-go, so you know exactly where you stand.
What happens to the copyright of my website if I move to another agency?
All intellectual property (IP) rights belong to the client. If you decide to move midway through your term, no hard feelings, we get it!
What are the payment terms for the design and development of my website?
Payments are paid in advance, before development begins. There is no obligation to request a quote and discuss your options. Additional provisions can be made upon certain circumstances or when a website project exceeds USD$5000.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a free platform on which website designers and developers like us build websites. It provides all the flexibility and functionality we need so you’re easily able to keep your site up to date with new content. We love it, as do millions of business owners. We use it for all the different websites we create, from small business websites to ecommerce sites.
Can you convert my existing website into WordPress?
We sure can!! We can migrate your website to WordPress although we cannot guaranty a pixel-by-pixel copy of your old site. However, we can almost guaranty it will be better than it was 😉
If WordPress is free, why do I pay for your services?
WordPress is free to use as an open-source platform and requires some coding knowledge and server experience. We charge you for design and development services but once your site is finished, you don’t have to pay any ongoing costs for using the platform itself.
How long does it take to see results from SEO?
Google has personally answered this one for you. They say that in most cases SEO can take between 4 months to a year to help your business first implement improvements and then see potential benefit.
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is required to get your website online. It is the space that you ‘rent’ which houses your web files and allows users to access your site and the information contained on it.
Can I purchase my own domain?
We provide one domain free with all service plans. If you already have your domain, you can change the name servers to ours:
We will take care of the rest once you’ve made the change.
Why are you called BOOM?
Great question! “BOOM!” is the sound you hear when there is significant impact. We build high-converting websites that will have a positive impact on your audiences.
It also explains the exclamation point.
