Frequent Questions

 

HOW LONG DOES THE WEB DESIGN PROCESS TAKE?

It depends on the details of your project, and if you already have your brand established. Being collaborative, the project timing also depends on your responsiveness, in gathering materials and in giving feedback. An estimate is 9-12 weeks.

I can work with many themes, but I typically recommend the Genesis Framework or Pro Photo. After getting to know you and your business, we’ll decide together what backend will let us to create the right look for your brand.

 

WHAT ABOUT SHOWIT?

For years, we have said no to Showit. We turned down business with this decision, but always felt good about it. In late 2018, a client came to me looking to launch a second website but wanted to go with Showit. Being a repeat client, I’d told her I’d take a look. After a full evaluation I had to admit I was impressed with the changes over the years. It is now a good solid platform that I can recommend.

We are excited to official start accepting Showit clients, and even partnered with an experienced Showit developer for any expertise that is needed beyond my current skillset in building the design we create.

 

WHY WORDPRESS?

I could go on for hours about why I love WordPress, but I promise I won’t. If you’d like the long answer, read Why I am a WordPress Geek. In short, it’s extremely versatile, search engine friendly, and easy for to maintain. WordPress is regularly updated to keep up with changing technology.

 

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Typically our wait list is between two and ten weeks. It sounds long but truly four weeks seems to be the ideal time most clients need to gather images, review content and get ready to kickoff. My assistant will guide you through the process.
