Lost opportunities to connect with new customers online
Over 90% of consumers use the internet to find local businesses and services. Without a website, your business is essentially invisible to this large pool of potential new customers conducting online searches.
Less ability to build brand awareness and loyalty
Websites provide a platform to share information about your business, build connections with customers, and foster brand loyalty over time through consistent messaging and customer experience.
Lost sales opportunities
Without a website, your business misses out on the ability to sell products or services online. Even service-based businesses can provide online scheduling and payments for customer convenience.

How long will it take to get a new website?Typically, we can have a new website completed in 3-5 weeks from start to finish. The process begins with a kickoff call and planning questionnaire to gather all the foundational details we need to get started. From there, we'll develop an initial design mockup within 1-2 weeks for your feedback. With your approval, we'll work rapidly on site development and content population. Throughout the process we'll keep you updated with regular check-ins as we progress through each milestone. Within 3-4 weeks from project start, we'll be in the final stretch of quality testing and ensuring all is working smoothly. This also allows time for us to populate the site with any existing content you have. The final launch week involves final tweaks, linking the site live, and officially migrating your domain. And then your new, custom-designed website will be up online! We find this careful but quick process reduces headaches and keeps projects on track. Let us know if you have any other questions as we get started on creating your new website. We're committed to delivering incredible websites punctually.
Will my website be mobile-friendly?Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly website is essential these days, and making sure your site looks great and functions properly on all devices will be a top priority. When we design and develop your new website, mobile responsiveness will be built in from the start. Your site will flex and adapt seamlessly to accommodate smaller screens like phones and tablets. This means all the content will resize and rearrange itself for optimal mobile viewing. Features like navigation menus and calls-to-action will adapt so they are easy to use on touch screens. Site speed will also be optimized to load quickly on mobile connections. We'll thoroughly test your website during development to ensure mobile responsiveness. We'll check that interactions, navigation, forms, videos and other elements perform smoothly. This ensures a flawless mobile experience. Rest assured, your website will be just as effective on mobile as on desktop. You'll have one website that provides an exceptional experience for visitors no matter how they access it. Just let us know if you have any other questions!
Will I be able to the new website myself?Absolutely! We make sure our clients have full access to edit and update their own websites as needed. Our team will provide you with an intuitive content management system (CMS). The CMS allows you to log in and make changes to site pages, add new posts or content, modify images, update text and info, and more. We can train you on how to use this system during the handoff process so managing content is easy or you can sign up for one of our Website Maintenance packages! We’re always available for any questions or troubleshooting as well. We want to empower you to keep your site fresh and current. Let us know if you need help with anything!
Will you help create content or do I need to provide it all for the new website?We can create most of the content! As a full service marketing company, we are happy to handle the majority of the content creation and production for your new website. You can rely on our team to develop most of the website copy and assets you need. We’ll have in-depth conversations to fully understand your business, brand, products/services, and goals. From there, we will advise on the optimal website structure, pages, and messaging to achieve your goals. For any existing marketing materials or content you have, we are happy to reuse that where appropriate. Beyond that, our talented in-house copywriters and designers will develop all the required website content from the ground up.
Can you help register my domain name?Absolutely, assisting with domain registration is a service we provide. As part of our website setup process, we will do a domain search to ensure your preferred name is available. Once you've selected the perfect domain for your brand, we can purchase it on your behalf. We'll walk you through options from the major domain registrars like GoDaddy, Google Domains, Namecheap etc. and help select the best fit based on factors like pricing, reputation, and value added features. If you already own your domain, we can seamlessly transfer or point it to your new website as well. We'll handle setting up the domain, DNS configuration, security provisions, and more. We're here to provide ongoing guidance and support when it comes to your domain. Just let us know any questions!
How much of a commitment should I expect for a new website?Our aim is to make the process as streamlined and minimally disruptive as possible for you. At the start, we'll need about an hour for planning calls, questionnaires, and answering any initial questions. During the design phase, we'll need 2-3 check-ins to review and approve the look and feel. Once designed and created in the CMS, we will ask that you provide a final look over of the site and offer approval. After that, we launch the site! If you select a Website Maintenance package we will continue overseeing your site for any content updates and addressing any issues. All in all, you should expect 3-5 hours total of time commitment on your end to ensure this is a seamless and excellent experience!
