Frequently Asked Questions
Do I even need a website?
That depends on what you're trying to accomplish. If you just want to share vacation or family photo's, connect with friends, or just be social, then other alternatives would better suit you. If you have any kind of business, at least have an online business card with contact info.
Why should I hire you? My nephew / son / cat can build a website.
The old saying of you get what you pay for, holds true here. You can probably paint your own house and change your own oil as well but why don't you? Because other professionals have the time, tools and expertise to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Your company says it does SEO. What is that?
SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. Simply put, it is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's unpaid results — often referred to as natural or organic results. The better optimized a webpage / site is, the higher up in the search engine results page (SERP's) it will be, and drive more traffic to your business.
I already have a website. Can you just maintain it?
Of course. I have different levels of maintenance agreements if you wish.
SEO! Oh Our secretary does that, when she has time
I actually had a GM for a cabin rental company say that to me. If you're serious about your company or business, SEO is not an afterthought your temp does during slow time. As nice as this lady was, there was a reason why I hadn't heard of them even though her company was only 2 miles from where I lived for 10 years.
Do you gaurentee first page listings in Google search?
No. It takes time to do it right so any company/individual that tells you otherwise, is either uninformed or plans to cheat the search engine (known as black hat SEO). Google uses about 220+ criteria to rank your site so growing your site organically requires patient methodical steps.
I heard I can pay to have a higher listing
You are referring to Google Adwords. You build an ad with certain keywords, then let Google know how much you're willng to spend to have your ads run in a certain page position. You are in total control of your budget. You can budget by keyword, ad or time frame. If you exceed your budget, your ad stops until your stated budget resets.
I heard it's expensive
SEO can be monetarily expensive but it doesn't have to be. The expense comes in investing the time in doing it right. Code, scripts and images must be optimized for fast load times, links must be built, local and regional competition must be checked out, keywords must be identified and incorporated, Google Analytics / Adwords traffic closely examined, and a host of other details to keep your business relevant.
