HOW SOON CAN YOU START WORKING ON MY PROJECT?
It all depends on our schedule. Being a boutique firm we only take a limited amount of clients at a time.
I’M NOT LOCAL, CAN WE STILL WORK TOGETHER?
Yes, we have clients all over the India.
WE ARE A NON PROFIT, CAN YOU DO OUR WEBSITE FOR FREE?
From time to time we do some charitable work but due to our overhead we are limited to what we are able to do.
CAN I GET AN ESTIMATE BEFORE WE DISCUSS MY PROJECT?
Sure, please fill out the Quotation and we’ll try to give you a ballpark. Keep in mind the greater the detail the better.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
Yes, once you decide to work with us, we'll draw up a contract which will list the terms of payment.
WHAT IS A CMS AND WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND IT?
CMS stands for Content Management System. We highly recommend adding a CMS to your website. The CMS will save you not only time but in the long run money. You will easily be able to update yourself in a matter of minutes.
WHY DO I NEED SSL?
Having an SSL certificate for your site lets your customers know that their personal data is being sent to a legitimate organization and that their personal information will be encrypted while it is transmitted. Site abandonment rates are high for ecommerce sites without SSL certificates. This can lead to lost revenue, unhappy customers, and effect your reputation.
CAN YOU REGISTER A DOMAIN & HOST MY SITE?
Yes. We can register domains & if you would like we can also host your site. We have a dedicated server.Fees are dependent on the size of the site & are billed yearly.
WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME AND WHY DO I NEED IT?Every Web site must have a domain name. A domain name is your Web site’s unique address on the Internet.As an example, the domain name for MAXBURST Web Design is http://www.maxburst.com. The most common domain names will end in .com, .net, or .org, but there are many more to choose from.After your registration, you will be given full access information to your own, personal domain name control panel. In many cases, our clients request us to manage, update, transfer or change their registration information so they don’t have to worry about learning the technical aspects of web maintenance.
HOW MUCH DOES A WEBSITE COST?
We do not use templates or pre-made design themes we build your site from the ground up. Much like building a house it all depends on the size, structure & features. Before we can adequately give a rough estimate we would need to know what the architecture & features for the site will be as well as the size.
I HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT MAKING SURE YOUR SEO IS GOOD. HOW DO YOU DO THAT OR DO YOU OFFER A SEPARATE SERVICE?
We build websites using best web practices, this is the first & foremost most important aspect in raising your SEO. Some firms are either using such old development technology or they'll simply give you one giant jpeg as your whole site and it's horrendous for your SEO. Why would they do that? It's quick & they'll make more money taking short cuts. That being said we do also offer an added SEO service in which we'll run reports, do submissions of your site to crawlers etc.
DO YOU DO MOBILE APPLICATIONS?
Yes, we create a mobile apps that are not only visually interesting but utilize best practices for User Interface.
I HAVE A WEBSITE ALREADY BUT I CAN'T LOCATE IT WHEN I SEARCH FOR IT. I NEED HELP WITH MY SEO (SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION) IS THAT SOMETHING YOU DO?
Yes, we can help you with your SEO. Please note however there is no magic pill for SEO. Companies claiming they can have you at the top in a matter of days are misleading. What we can do is look at your website code, run reports to see what steps need to be taken to increase your SEO. If your website was developed using poor web practices we may have to either fix the code or recreate the website. An example of this is they could have developed a web page as a single image with no live copy. Terrible web practice & I'll be honest there are several small firms here in New Orleans that do this often.
I KNOW A GOOD WEB DEVELOPER, IS THERE A REASON I NEED MORE THAN THAT?
Most web developers are strictly coders and not creative's. We happen to have several developers that are both and have dual degrees but that is rare. When you are launching a website you need to have a team working together that consist of marketer/strategy, front end UI design & web development. It may also be necessary to have a writer & a photographer.
I SEE WEBSITES ON THE INTERNET OFFERING A WEBSITE DESIGNED FOR ₹3000, WHY SHOULD I PAY MORE?
We get calls every week from people that have tried to go the inexpensive route only to find they have a broken website or a website they paid for but never received. A website is your face to the world & is the single most important marketing piece.
I WAS TOLD I NEED A MOBILE SITE AND A WEB APP IN ADDITION TO MY WEBSITE, DO I REALLY NEED ALL OF THAT?
No, a firm that tells you need a website & a mobile site is either not up on current web technology or they are trying to sell you the same thing twice. Your website should be developed using responsive design so it automatically resizes & reconfigures to the browser size. You absolutely do need a site that functions for mobile but it’s unlikely that you need to have two sites and even more unlikely that you need an app . As of 2011 69% of mobile users accessed the internet on their phone daily & one out of four smart phone users access the Internet solely from their phones.
WHAT IS RESPONSIVE DESIGN?
WHY DO WEBSITES COST SO MUCH?
Web technology changes rapidly. Our developers spend much of their waking hours outside of work keeping up with technology, they attend webinars, go to conferences it's a never ending process of education. As soon as you learn one language the next version is on it's way and in the case of our developers they are experts at multiple languages.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A WEBSITE?
It depends on the size & features. There's much more that goes into building a website than what one might think. That being said it’ll likely take 8-12 weeks once we get started.
WHY IS DESIGN & WEB DEVELOPMENT SO EXPENSIVE?
Our rates are below the national & regional average & yet we like to think we are among the best of the best in the south. Our creative director is involved in every project and with over 22 years of professional experience you'll be in good hands. We also have some of the best designers, developers & illustrators in the south. What has happened is anyone can learn a little web development or call themselves a designer bringing down the perceived value and also pigeonholing designers as flakey or incompetent. It's VERY important you find out what the firms background is. It's not uncommon for someone to open up shop & call themselves an expert. MAKE sure they have a degree in Design, Marketing &/or Development from a good college. And make sure they had at least 7+ years of experience prior to opening up their own firm.
IN WHAT FORMAT SHOULD I SUPPLY THE CONTENT ?
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form – for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.
I’M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT I NEED, BUT CAN YOU OFFER ANY RECOMMENDATIONS WHEN IT COMES TO MY BRAND/ PROJECT?
Yes, we can set up free business consulting and a strategy meeting.
I HAVE AN IDEA FOR MY LOGO CAN I JUST HIRE YOU TO CREATE WHAT I HAVE SKETCHED OUT?
When hiring us to create a brand we spend a lot of time researching your industry, competition, analyzing your business & needs before we decide on the correct direction for your brand. In general we recommend allowing us to come up with ideas to make sure you have the best outcome for your brand.
DO YOU PROVIDE PRINTING?
While we are not printers we can recommend & handle printing for you.
WHAT IS THE CLIENT’S INVOLVEMENT IN THE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT PROCESS?
We are your partner. We share comps and show you development process as we go. We ask questions & listen.
