Think Different

We thrive on the creative and bring that enthusiasm to your website design project! For our Midrange and Top-Shelf offerings (see below), we go for the gusto. We start by understanding what’s important for your site—then we start “crushing” it. That might be dynamic displays, magnetic headlines, or innovative page designs. Maybe it’s a beckoning Call-to-Action, a Lottie animation, or a simple layout upgrade.  While we love “different,” sometimes a simple solution is the better choice.  We’re fastidious about aligning your objectives with the right solution, so when creativity is called for, we are free to unleash our innovative thinking to deliver cork-popping experiences to help you stand apart from your competition.

“In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is failing. Not standing out is the same being invisible…”

Web Design FAQs

Do you build WordPress websites?2021-11-02T08:53:54-04:00

Yes, we only build WordPress websites. WordPress is now the most popular content management system (CMS) on the planet. Currently, over 75 million websites are powered by WordPress (over 37% of the internet). Used by large and small businesses alike, WordPress has the flexibility and options that allow businesses to get all the features they need without custom code. The WordPress interface is easy enough for just about anyone to go in and make changes, giving business the ability to easily update content as needed without having to depend on an IT person or web developer.

Can you build me a mobile-friendly website?2021-11-01T19:44:52-04:00

Yes. In fact, we only build mobile-friendly websites. In order to get the best return on investment, your website must be responsive and easy to use on all-sized devices. Otherwise it will be penalized and devalued by search engines, and your hard-earned money will be wasted on a website that no one sees. We incorporate best SEO practices in the building of our websites so our clients have the opportunity to compete in their niche.

Do I have to be in Boston in order to work with your web design agency?2021-11-01T19:40:26-04:00

Absolutely not! In fact, we have built websites for clients all over the world. We also create multi-lingual websites for international organizations. As long as you are able to communicate with us via video conference, email, and phone, we are happy to partner with you to build your amazing new business website!

How much time will it take to build my website?2022-02-21T15:54:06-05:00

We generally aim to finish a website within 6-8 weeks, but that depends on the size and complexity of your website project, as well as the amount of content you will be providing. Typically our clients set the pace. The more involved they are with the process, content, and revisions, the more quickly the website will be launched.

How many pages should my website be?2021-11-01T16:45:51-04:00

That’s determined by your products/services and objectives.  At a high level, most websites have separate pages for Home, About, and Contact, and separate pages for each of your key products or services.  For example, an Auto Body Shop would have a separate page for Auto Body Work and Auto Glass Replacement, but maybe their other services are “secondary” so they do not need separate pages for them, such as brake or tire repair.  In general, if you want your services to rank well with search engines, they should have their own page.  We can assist with this.

How much does it cost for a website?2021-11-01T16:43:08-04:00

Our pricing is on our website, so please check it out.  You can expect to pay what you see–no hidden fees, no trying to sell you things you don’t need.  We give you our best assessment of what will help your business, and then you can decide.

How do I know if my website is a good value?2021-11-01T16:49:05-04:00

There are two ways to answer that.  Our process will aim to solve your business problems.  You might need more customers; want to save time by answering fewer phone calls or more efficiently handling form submissions; or improving your company’s reputation.  You can then place a value on those things and determine if your website investment is worth it.

The other way is by calculating website Return on Investment.  Let’s say you pay $8000 for a new website.  Now think of how new sales you need to recoup the $8000.  For example, if your net profit on sales is 10%, that means you need to generate $80000 in new sales to pay for the website.  We recommend that you view the “payback period” the 12-24 month period after the site goes live.  But keep in mind an important fact: A new website must be effective to yield results.  If you open a beautiful new retail store but it’s on a side street and many people don’t ever see it, the effectiveness is decreased.  Still the concept is the same–you would calculate any of your investment over a period of time and compare that to results of the website.  If you’re interested in learning more about this, we love crunching numbers–just ask!

Can I update the website myself?2021-11-01T16:51:53-04:00

Yes, we install WordPress as the content management system and you can use this to update your website.  If you need training on using WordPress, we can recommend some free self-tutorials.  We also offer tutorials as an optional service at $90/hour, and we can typically show you how to use the site in 1-2 hours.

Furthermore, we offer a Custom Admin Documentation service that goes through your particular site and provides step-by-step written or video instructions for the key areas of your website.  That’s a one-time cost of $500.  Read more here <ADD LINK>.  Lastly, we provide website updates as part of our website hosting and support services.

Can the website be hosted wherever I want?2021-11-01T16:58:10-04:00

Yes, if you have a place to host the website, we will transfer it from there or provide you with the files as part of our website design service fee.  For those who know little about “website hosting,” this refers to your website needing to be set up on a server (computer) so visitors can get to it.  There are hundreds of hosting companies out there, and making a decision exclusively on price can be a big mistake, especially if you encounter the need for support.  If you look into third party hosting companies, you will find a wide variation in cost and services.  We’re happy to educate you on this if needed. We also offer hosting and support services, but you’re not obliged to use them.

Our Approach to Pricing.

We’ve compared our prices with others. There are independent freelancers who charge less than we do. Some are talented. Yet there will always be a limitation of a “one-man band.” On the other side, large agencies have large teams, offices, and overhead, and prices to match. We’re a “small agency” that gets big results, and we can add resources as projects dictate. We go the extra mile to delight customers, and we believe this offers exceptional value for small businesses.
