In this blog post, we will be covering some of the Frequently Asked Questions that our web design team receive regularly. 

Hopefully they will also answer some of your queries surrounding website design as well!

  • How long does a website take to build?
  • How much does it cost?
  • How long is a website designer responsible for the site that they have built?
  • Can you give my website more ‘movement’?
  • I already have a site, but I want a new design. Can you help?

How long does a website take to build?

This question has a mulitude of answers but in short, it really does depend on what you need your website to do.

A miniature website build can take up to 8 weeks but if you want a bigger, more complex site, it could take a lot longer. 

The best way to figure out what type of website you want, what you require it to do and what it needs to achieve for your customers to be satisfied, is to book a free consultation with one of our website designers.

How much does it cost?

There are a lot of variants surrounding this question.

It depends who is building your website, when you need it by and how complicated the overall design is.

Again, you would need to book a free consultation with a website designer to get a break-down of how much they charge. 

Asking how a website designer charges is a completely different question.

Usually, they charge by day or by the hour.

How long is a website designer responsible for the site that they have built?

Treat your website designer like a genie.

They are great and they can do amazing, magical things with your site.

But you don’t get infinite wishes. 

You and your website designer can determine the time-frame of website support through a contract. 

It’s important to check this formal agreement so you are both clear on what your website needs and if your website development needs a little more time.

However, more time will more often mean a higher price…

So make sure you establish these details before signing the contract.

Can you give my website more ‘movement’?

When a client asks for more ‘movement’ on their webpage, it generally refers to anything that will make your site more interactive for the customer to use. 

The most asked-for features are usually to have an image rotate or to make scrolling more effortless.

However, we are living in a time where the sky’s the limit!

You can create any animation, transition and other forms of amazing effects using CSS and a touch of Javascript.

‘Movement’ can mean just about anything, so remember to specific with your web design team.

I already have a site, but I want a new design. Can you help? 

Yes, of course! 

If you have some ideas on how we can improve your site or you just need to rebuild your current one, we can help you with that.

It doesn’t matter what size your company is or what industry it is in. It is pivotal that you have a strategic plan when it comes to redesigning your website.

Not having a clear, accessible website design can be overly harmful to sales and lead conversion. 

Your website can be the first interaction that a client has with your company.

That’s why it should be a top priority to establish trust among your users through a seamless user experience.
