How long does it take to make a website?
If you want a simple website with five pages and you have your content ready, the website design could take a couple of days. If you want an extensive website with technical functions, it will take longer. If you send us an outline brief, we can give you an idea of how long your particular project would take. The timing will also depend on how long it takes you to provide the content and feedback.
What system do you recommend for my website?
We specialise in a content management system (CMS) called WordPress. We recommend this system because of how user-friendly it is. This system accounts for 30% of websites worldwide.
What is a CMS?
A CMS is a content management system which allows the user to upload content through an interface without having to be a coder. It is essentially a way to organise your content online. The aim is to provide content in an easy way for your customers to understand and view.
I have an idea of what I want my website to look like, how do I make it happen ?
It’s always a good idea to send us links to websites you love that show what you like regarding design or functionality. We would always advise that your site is original and not a direct copy of a competitor’s website. You need to take into account your company/brand logo since this will dictate the core colours of the site and the font. We can provide you with a rough mock-up either using a WordPress template or graphic design visuals which you can approve before we create the website.
I have a new website, how long will it take to rank on Google?
New websites can sometimes take up to 30 days to start displaying in search engines, but most of the time it does happen faster. Ranking on search engines depends on many factors such as website speed, SEO content, content length, photographs properly named and your SEO plugin completed with all the information. Competition from websites in your business sector who have established websites will also affect your ranking.
