Make a Great First Impression

Are you looking for a web design firm that can create a great website that will represent your brand effectively? At In Good Company Web Design I offer website packages that will fit all your website needs. From a simple blog, to a turnkey website such as your own custom social network, classified ads, or an integrated shopping cart within your custom web design package; I can create a custom website that is suited to your specific needs.

Web design isn’t just about having a a simple website (although there’s nothing wrong with a simple website). Web design about generating a feeling of security, trust, that is representative of your products or services. And to build that trust, your clients need to feel that your website has been professionally crafted. There are other factors that are in play when creating your website. The overall design of your website should be pleasing to the eye. Something that stands out, yet flows together seamlessly. Your website navigation should be easy and effortless making it so that your users never get lost or have to click the “back” browser button. And all the information on the website should be sorted and organized on your website so that it is easy to find.

Optimization

When planning a web design project, there are yet other factors to consider. Can the website be easily updated, does the web design reflect high rankings in search engines through search engine optimization, and are there extra costs after the web design project is finished and the website is live.

I use the WordPress back-end exclusively for all websites that I design. WordPress is a proven leader as a content management system that includes complete customization, upward scalability, and is safe. Once your web design project is live, you will be able to add extra pages, edit content including pictures, and customize promotional content; without affecting the overall website design.

What about SEO?

Getting higher rankings in search engines is called search engine optimization or SEO. This can be done in a few ways. The frameworks include what is called organic SEO, and that means that the code itself is made cleanly which is reflected in how search engines like Google, ranks your site. The amount of unique content plays the most critical role in ranking you higher in search engines. The more relevant content you have on your website, means higher search engine visibility.

When creating your content, its also important to include keywords that search engines will pick up on. I use an SEO WordPress plugin in all web design projects I create. Its free and easy to use. Its great for website pages that don’t have very much text, and can be used in addition to any great content you already have. This plugin allows you to create a page title, description, and include keywords so that search engines take more notice of your website for each individual page created.

WordPress makes it Easy!

I use the WordPress framework; so that once your web design project goes live, there are no additional costs. Included with your completed website will be video tutorials on how to add content and update your website.

I that believe in creating websites that are clean, expressive, and simple. When starting on a web design project, I adapt my design intuition to your wants and needs; always keeping in mind the functionality and the goal of your website. No matter which web design package you choose,my goal is to make your website and brand successful. After all, when your website is successful, so is mine.

In Good Company Web Design will create a website to fit your business needs and will represent the professionalism of your brand.

I create websites using the latest technologies so that your coding is current and so that your website loads quickly.

Website

Design Craft

Each website I design is carefully crafted to reflect your business interest, but also to increase lead generation through quality and ease of use. After all, there’s no point in having a great website if it doesnt generate interest and help you make money. My trade is solely built around the idea that people can innately tell quality when they see it. And that the quality within your website builds trust with your visitors.

We’ve all been to a website that though may have been an honest business, just wasn’t made well. And that kind of feeling comes from either the information presented or lack of a well put together website. After all, if they don’t market their website professionally, perhaps their product or service is not what you’re looking for.

In Good Company Web Design is not a casual website design service. There are a lot of do-it-yourself website products on the market that will use a template and make your brand fit within those boundaries. And that may be what you’re looking for. But a good percentage of people that have tried those “easy” solutions, have had me redesign their website. It takes a designer, someone with an eye for detail in design to really make your website engaging.

When completed you will be provided with a 600 dpi image files to use on the printed media of your choice.

Responsive Design

Designing a website that will re-size to display intuitively based on the size of the screen (from mobile, to large screen) is a process that increases the power and usability of your website.

Website Maintenance

There is a small learning curve to get used to WordPress and updating your website.  I also provide videos that walk you step-by-step in how do do this. But if you don’t have the time or inclination, I can update your website for you.

Facebook Cover

Its super important to have your social media pages reflect the same image across the board. So I can create a professional Facebook cover that truly engages your users and that reflects your brand.

Custom Twitter or YouTube

Slightly more intensive, the background for your Twitter or YouTube can really make your business stand out.  I suggest changing your design about once a year to keep your followers engaged, stimulated, and current.

Why WordPress?

All Websites are built using the WordPress Content Management System (CMS). The following are several benefits to using WordPress instead of a regular website built with HTML and CSS:

Easy Updates

You don’t need a web designer if you want to update or change something on your website. Once the website is completed, you will simply login to the CMS, and change whatever you want, Once you save the information, it goes live that instant.

Free Plugins

Plugins are areas of your website that can add functionality. Most plugins are free and available at WordPress.org, but there are also premium WordPress plugins, and the cost of those varies (but usually fairly cheap). These plugins do that, they simply are installed and plug in to you CMS and add extras. An example would be a weather widget, by installing this free plugin your users would then see the current weather for the location of your choice. There are thousands of different kinds of plugins and installation and configuration of several plugins are already included in your website package. Once your site is live, you can add any extras that you want.

Scalability

Once you have a WordPress website on your hosting servers, its very easy to update to more features.  As an example, if you have the Custom Website Package and want to have a shopping cart implemented into your existing website; the shopping cart would simply be added to your design, seamlessly working with the existing website.

FAQs

The Design Process

1. Initial Consultation

I have several types of  base websites to choose from and they act as a starting point to the design of your website. If you are looking for something special, maybe something that’s not listed; let me know and we can brainstorm something unique for your brand. After I get an idea for what you want with your completed website and once I settle on some basics, I will email you a website proposal, a website questionnaire, and a service agreement so I can get things started. From start to finish, a typical website will take between 2-6 weeks before the site is live on your servers.

2. Initial Payment

Along with the previous emails I have sent you, you will also receive a Paypal request for the initial payment.  The initial payment will typically be one half of the total website quote, and is due before work can begin. If your initial payment less than $500, your initial payment will be $500 and the final payment will be the remaining amount. Though this is the preferred method of payment, I also accept checks and cash. But please note that if you send me your payment via snail mail, this may delay the website project until funds are received.

3. The Visual Mockup

Before I begin coding the website, I will create a graphic representation (website mockup) of your website for your approval. Using the information from our email/phone correspondence, the visual mockup will be designed with WordPress structures in mind, so that the design will transfer to with little to no changes to the coded version. Once you are satisfied, I can then begin splicing and coding this design into your site. Please note that after the coding of the website has begun, and changes to the design will be billed at my hourly rate.

4. Make Remaining Payments

When I receive your email approval, I will send the final bill via PayPal. Then I will begin coding your website to In Good Company Web Design test servers.

5. Coding Your Website

From here I will begin coding your website onto my test servers. Please note that any text content that you want used within the site, including menu items and images will be needed to complete this step. I can provide this content for you, but its better if your content is written from someone who is an expert on the subject, you! If however you want me to write your content, I can do so at my hourly rate. The test site is located on the In Good Company Web Design servers and will appear exactly like it will on your servers when the site is live.

6. Approve Test Website

Any changes that you want made to the website should be done now. From how a menu is ordered to how a page is formatted, these little changes can be made to your specifications.

7. Website Transfer to Your Servers

To transfer the website to your hosting service, I will need the Hosting site web address, along with Login and Passwords. If you already have WordPress installed, I will need that login information. Since every web host is different, and though this process of transferring your site usually takes 24-48 hours to complete; it may take longer depending on how your web host and domain name is configured. But I will schedule a late night to make the transfer, so that if you have an existing site with an existing customer base, there will be little if any disruption in service.

30 Day Support

After your website is live, you may have questions regarding the use of your website. WordPress is fairly easy to navigate, but like with anything new, takes a little getting used to. I have created video tutorials that should answer any questions you may have. But in case they don’t, Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take?

This really depends on the kind of package you choose, but it usually takes between 2-6 weeks for a blog or custom website; but an ecommerce or integrated website can take up to 2 months.

When will you start my project?

I make it a point to initiate your and begin your project within a week of receiving your signed service agreement. This is when ideas are fresh and the best time to brainstorm ideas for your website. I will send you an email at the beginning of the project with an expected completion date, wherein the visual mockup will be completed by the halfway point.

Can you design my website faster?

On a typical website, I receive around 200 emails; this should give you an idea as to the amount of communication involved from start to finish. Depending on other projects I am working on, I may be able to quicken the design process, but the minimum time-frame is 2 weeks.

What WordPress framework will be used for my website?

I use various frameworks such as Genesis and Howling Dog as a starting place for all themes I create. We’ve found that they provide the most stable foundation, and ability to easily make changes to the website once it is live.

Are their other costs are involved?

I design WordPress websites exclusively and that means that once the website design is completed and live on your web hosting, you can update the website on your own (even from a mobile phone), and there are no additional costs. The only other aspects that require any kind of cost will be your web hosting and domain name registration. Web hosting and Domain name registration (http://www.yourname.com) can be purchased through the hosting service of your choice, but I prefer GoDaddy.

If you prefer for me to handle your hosting and domain registration, I can take include you in my hosting program. Ask me for details.

Whats all this talk about search engine optimization?

Search Engine Optimization or SEO is a way of getting listed higher in search engines. There are many ways of achieving this, and many of these options are included in the organic code of your website. There are little tricks you can do to help achieve better results, but it is my suggestion to simply focus on creating unique content for you website and update and add content to your website frequently. If you have a blog or an online store, this will help your website just by adding relevant unique content to your pages.

Do I need a logo designed for my website?

A logo is helpful for brand recognition, but its not absolutely necessary for your website. Many businesses use a header that includes the company name and some relevant symbols or images. When building your website, I will include a custom header with your website that reflects the values of your personality and your business. Logo design services are also available.

Will you write my content if I don’t have any?

If you don’t have your own content to use for your website, I can write content for you at my hourly rate, or at an agreed upon flat rate. However, you are more than likely the most qualified person to write unique content about your products or services.

 30 Day Support after site is live!

 The experts say that to be successful in web design, that you need to serve a niche, such as only designing real estate, construction, or health providers websites.

At In Good Company Web Design, I don’t subscribe to that nonsense.

I believe that success is more about people and less about numbers. I specialize in providing incredible support to you, no matter what your website is about.
