    Frequently Asked Questions

    I have been building web experiences for over 10 years. In that time I have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I crafted this FAQ page to answer many of the frequently asked questions I were asked along the way.

    How much does a website cost?

    The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary. Though my website projects generally start in the $5,000 range for basic business sites and range upward depending on your unique needs.

    I am happy to discuss your requirements and provide a quote at any time.

    I run a small- or medium-sized business and want an online presence to promote my business. What's the first step?

    You need a domain name, a Web server and a professionally developed website. You also need the website to be uploaded to your host and promoted to search engines. I can help you with all aspects of getting a website up and running.

    What kind of businesses do you work with?

    I work with a broad range of company types [small start-ups, large corporations, nonprofits, B2B, B2C and more] across many business industries [technology, food, apparel, health + beauty, camps, travel, finance, arts, fair trade, and more.]

    Over the years, I’ve helped businesses improve customer service, market their products, and attract customers. Functionality requests range from basic to advanced. I take the time to get to know your industry, organization, and competitors to ensure your site supports all of your goals.

    How long does it take to build a website?

    The time it takes to build a site depends on the complexity of the site.

    Standard websites take approximately 60 days to create. E-commerce (online store) websites take approximately 120 days to create.

    If you have a deadline, I will work hard to meet it. The most common cause of delay is the content (text/images) from the client.

    Who will I work with during the project?

    This is a great question to ask and you should ask it of any Freelance web developer you are considering. Many freelancers will farm out work to other junior level freelancers or interns. My clients work directly with me and I stay involved from start to finish whether I am working on small part of the project or the whole project.

    What platform do you build your websites on?

    I build all of our websites on the open-source Content Management System (CMS) platforms i.e WordPress and Magento.

    Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?

    Yes, I can help you update your existing website that another web firm built.

    Do I own my website?

    YES! Everything that I build will be 100% owned by you. Most of my clients stay with me for the on-going maintenance for life of the website.

    How does the payment process work?

    The project starts with a 10% deposit and then weekly installments of the project balance over the course of development. But of course we can discuss about it and can proceed according to your comfort.

    How do I update my website?

    There are many different ways to update websites. If you have a small website of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask me to carry out these changes for you.

    Other methods are largely dependent on how much data or information you have and how you store this information. I can provide functionality so you can upload your entire product catalog to the website in one action using spreadsheets.

    What is the difference between a static site and a dynamic site?

    Static Web pages always look the same and the content rarely changes. To make a change, you must create the page yourself or request a Web designer to do it for you. The newly created page and any images must then be uploaded to the Web servers.

    Dynamic pages are the opposite. They can change every time they are loaded (without anyone having to make those changes), and they can even change their content based on what your website visitors do.

    The dynamic page can be created to respond to information entered by your site’s visitor. They usually store and pull information from an underlying database.

    Dynamic sites can reduce ongoing maintenance costs if you don’t want to change things yourself with a Web page editor. They usually cost more to develop, as they require more complex coding. A content management utility also needs to be developed to help you manage your site.

    Many clients have a combination of dynamic and static elements in their sites. For instance, they might use dynamic pages for a product catalog where they have to change information or pictures regularly. The “Contact” and “About Us” pages are often left as static pages.
