Helpful Questions and Answers

Are all of your websites custom?

Yes, we always start from scratch with all of our web design projects and craft you a website based on other sites you like, features you wish to have, and more.

Will I be able to make changes to the design?

Of course. We will be in close contact with you throughout every phase of the project to get your approval and feedback and will make changes based on your comments.

Why do you work with WordPress?

We love WordPress for a variety of reasons. With its customization, easy-to-learn interface, and ability to help your SEO, it has been our #1 choice for web design and development for over 10 years.

Do you write content to accommodate a new site?

If you’d like to have our writing team revamp your content or craft completely new content for your redesigned site, we would be happy to discuss options for making that happen.

What happens after our website is done being built?

After you have approved the final version of the website on our development server, we will plan to push your website live on your desired hosting platform, implement all the tracking codes you need, and give you logins and access to your new site once it is fully launched.
