How much does a website cost?

 

The question all service providers dread because the answer always is that it depends on what you want – and it really does. 

Various elements influence pricing. If you are looking for a bespoke design, functionality, website management, CRM integration, eCommerce functions, and any other feature, it all affects the price of a website.  

Your best option is to work with a web design and development company to provide a website quotation that fits your aspirations, goals, and budget. Every website can be customized to fit your needs and company objectives.

How long does it take to build a website?

 

 

It all goes back to the planning phase and the elements you need to be integrated into your website. 

Building a website, in our experience, takes around three to five months. This timeline includes discovery, research, design, development, and content creation. Of course, creating a more complicated website with an immersive and simulation experience requires more time for optimal results. 

At the start of every website development project, it’s crucial to set up a timeline and define responsibilities to keep things clear.

What does responsive mean?

 

A responsive website adjusts to the browser/device where it’s viewed. 

Visiting a website from a mobile phone versus a laptop will provide you with a similar but not identical experience. The mobile experience will be slightly different, with adjustments to fit the small screen. 

 

Isn’t that the same as mobile-friendly? 

 

Nope. A mobile-friendly website is a completely separate website from its desktop equivalent. On the other hand, a responsive website adapts and alters the on-screen information to fit whatever device is viewing the page.

 

 

The online and mobile worlds are constantly evolving, and they have become inextricably linked. Every digital device nowadays is connected to the internet. Therefore, every website created should be responsive on different mobiles and desktops. 

 

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

 

Search Engine Optimization (also known as Search Marketing) is the process of altering and adapting the content of your website to improve its chances of ranking better on search engines like google. 

Applying SEO strategies eventually leads to more traffic, lead generation, and clients.

What is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)?

 

SSL is the industry standard for making an internet connection safe and secure while transmitting critical data.

Visitors to your website may be requested to create a profile or provide information about their payment method. An SSL certificate will protect this information from being compromised, corrupted, or stolen. 

To survive on the internet and deliver a good user experience, your company must have a highly secure website.

 

What is UX/UI?

 

UX stands for User Experience design. UX defines the user’s interaction with the website and its different sections. The ultimate purpose of “User Experience” is to create easy, efficient, relevant, and pleasant experiences for the user. 

 

UI stands for User Interface design. Unlike UX, UI is more focused on the design and aesthetic of the website. Its purpose is to create visual touchpoints that attract the user using a combination of colors, typography, animations, and imagery. 

 

What is web hosting? 

 

Publishing a website on the worldwide web requires an online server, referred to as website hosting. It’s essentially like renting a room to store your website online so the public can access it. 

 

What is a domain name? 

 

A domain name refers to your website address. It’s what customers type into their browser's search bar to visit your website. 

A domain name is unique and cannot be shared with other websites. For instance, gdrmediagroup.com.au 

It’s critical to choose a domain name relevant to your organization. It should also be brief, easy to remember, and easy to pronounce. You should also use a suitable domain extension, such as .co, .au, .net, and .com 

 

How can I increase my website reach? 

 

More website traffic means more customers!

Here are some ways to drive traffic to your website:

  • Optimize your appearance on search engines (SEO)
  • Regularly refresh your content 
  • Promote on social media 
  • Add social media share buttons to your website
