Frequently Asked Questions

Here’s some of our Web Design questions and answers.

Our smallest package starts at $2,500. To get started please tell us more about your website needs or contact us at [email protected]

How long will it take to complete my website?

Our timeline is 4-6 weeks to complete a website but depends on the project since the size and pace of any project is set by the client. We will ask for your feedback through different stages of the project. Along with you providing photos and text if you choose. All this is a factor in the timeline and completion of your project.

Do I have to be in Twin Cities to work with you?

No. We work with clients from all over and can communicate by email, phone and Zoom meetings.

Will I be able to update the site myself when it's finished?

Yes. We give you access to your website on completion with a WordPress user login. We also provide you with 1 hour of training so you can make updates with adding photos and text. Our developers are available for more complex items or if you are too busy to make the updates on your own.

Will you maintain our website for us?

Yes. The choice is yours or reach out to us as needed for updates. You can contact us as you require updates to your website and we will quote hourly based on your requests.

Will my website be mobile-friendly?
Yes! All websites we build are mobile-friendly and this is more important than ever. We work hard to make sure your website is fully responsive on modern devices and browsers.
Who writes the text/content for the website?

We require you to provide all of the text content for your website. You are the expert on your business. We can also take current copy from your old site or print material and place in your website.

If you need assistance, we have a copywriter on our team who can help write original or clean up existing content at an additional cost.

Do you only create WordPress Websites?

Yes! WordPress is the best content management system that powers more than 62% of the world wide web. “409 million people view 21.2 billion WordPress pages each month.” It’s due to it’s flexibility and ease of use. From minimal, informational template websites to custom websites with specific functionality you can do it all with WordPress.

What if your website is built on Joomla, Squarespace, Shopify, Wix, etc? We can convert your website to WordPress.

Is monthly SEO included in my website build?

No, the website build does not include monthly SEO. All items that we add to your website can be seen by Google but that doesn’t mean you will rank #1.

We do however provide the proper structure in your webite build with h1, h2, h3, meta data, and alt tags on images, etc. Not included in all website packages.

What is photo sourcing?

If required, we will assist you in finding free stock images from websites such as Pexels and Unsplash. That can then be used in your website if you  have no photos of your own.

What forms of payment do you accept?
Upon agreement from the quote. We accept Cash, Check, Credit Card, Debit, Paypal, Stripe, and ACH Bank Transfer.
