What do I need to start building my website?
- A domain name: This is what your visitors will type in the address bar to find you (for example: www.marresmit.nl is my domain name). You can do a quick search for a domain name at www.instantdomainsearch.com
- A hosting company: This is where all of your website files go. If you don't know who to use as a web hosting company, let me know, I can assist you in finding a good one.
- A professional web designer: Your business is professional. Why would you settle for an amateur website?
How many pages can I have on my web site?
You can have as many pages as you want. Most websites have the following pages: Home, About Us, Products or Services & Contact Us. In addition you’ll want some complimentary pages to explain more in depth what it is you do or offer. We can discuss together what might be best for your business.
How long does it take to build a web site?
A website as offered in the Bronze Plan can be done in less than a week. You would need to have your content ready before we start. Most clients underestimate the work that goes into producing the right content - so be aware of this before you start. It all depends on how quickly these decisions are made. When we are creating content together on the go, and you quickly respond to the questions I might have, the whole process takes a month or two.
Will we need to have a face-to-face meeting to begin the project?
Although I always prefer to meet in person and chat about you and your business - it is not necessary. The majority of my websites are completed with contact via email and telephone only. I place suggested website designs online and you can view the work in progress with a special login.
How much does a website cost?
This is the million dollar question! Good web design does not have to be very expensive. My WordPress sites start as low as €600. Of course you can give a couple of 100 euros to your neighbors brother-in-law, but don’t expect much if you do. With the help of a professional webdesigner generating content for your business, you’ll earn your money back soon. And then some.
Do I have to stay with you to keep my website?
No. After your website is ready and live on the web, its yours! I can send you the files and database (for WordPress sites) to take to another web designer. Should I purchase your domain for you, I always make you the legal owner of the domain.
Do I get an email account with my website?
Yes. Depending on the hosting you choose you can make two or more email accounts.
Can you update my current website?
Yes, I can. I just need to have the FTP login information, and the admin login and passwords for your CMS as well.
What other services do you offer besides web design?
I offer web site maintenance, marketing, domain registration, graphic design and print. Need a business page on Facebook? Copywriting or SEO optimizations of your text? Consider it done. Management of your Instagram profile? I've got you covered. For advanced technical and custom projects I work with a team of some of the very best people in the field around the world. Questions?
