What is Website Design and Development?

Website design encompasses the skills and tasks that are needed to create and maintain a successful website. This can includes focusing on various aspects of a site’s front end, including aesthetic, user experience, graphic design, and more. As for the development, the back end of the site should be built to be user-friendly, fast loading, and structurally sound.

The goal of building a successful website is to be easily navigable, accessibly, and enticing for conversions, ultimately drawing in more consistent traffic and a return on investment in the form of qualified leads and sales.

Why Does Columbus Business Need a Strong Website?

A well-designed website will help your company stand out against your competition. You can do so by creating and maintaining a website that is visually appealing, loads quickly, and includes strong calls to action throughout. If you do not have a strong and responsive website, potential customers will be more inclined to click off your site, resulting in a loss of potential business!

With the help of our website design strategists, developers, and more, we can offer the following benefits that some other agencies may not be able to provide:

Common Questions on Website Design Projects

When talking with current and potential web design clients, we are often asked various questions, and we’re happy to supply answers so customers can understand our processes better and expand their knowledge of website design and development. Here are some FAQs to help as you are looking into our services:

How Long Does it Take to Build a Website?

The length of your website build can depend on what website services you specifically need, as well as the size and scale of the website itself. So if you are looking for us to build a new website from start to finish, you are looking at the project being anywhere from 12-16 weeks in total depending on the size of the project. On the other hand, if you just need a few design for conversion strategies added to your preexisting website, that time frame can do down.

Do You Offer Both Design and Development?

Yes! We not only will design your custom website, but we also have the ability to build it out as well.

Where Do You Host My Website?

For the majority of our web design clients, we recommend that they host their website on SiteGround unless they wish to stay with their current hosting company.

What Platform Do You Build Websites In?

We build majority of our websites in WordPress given its highly customizable capabilities and easy-to-learn platform. Some other reasons why we love WordPress include the following:

  • The platform includes a built-in blog
  • Comes with thousands of themes to choose from
  • You can choose from several plugins depending on your company’s needs
  • Most themes already include a mobile-compatible format

What Are the Stages of the Website Design Project?

Some stages you can expect throughout your project include site architecture recommendations, wire framing, Photoshop mockups, staging site creation, content migration, and finally, launching, all while keeping correspondence with you top of mind.

What Happens After Our Website Is Completed?

After we have launched your website, we will work with you to ensure you are well-educated on the content management system so you can update your new site whenever needed. We’d also love to keep our engagement going by working with you on SEO, PPC, or any of our other digital marketing services.
