Frequently Asked Questions

The following FAQs are here to help you answer the most common questions we get from our clients.

It is by no means complete, but we hope it helps you out!

Feel free to jump to the questions that most interest you via the Table of Contents to your right –>

How much does a website cost?

The cost of a website can vary significantly depending on various factors. Think of it like a house, it all depends on how big it is, what you want in it and so on.

Having said that, our website projects generally start in the $4000 range for basic business sites and more, depending on what you specifically need.

How long does it take to design and build a website?

Depending on the size of the website required, it normally takes 3-4 weeks from start to finish.

This all depends on the content being ready (images, text etc) and available from the client (aka you).

Will my website work on mobile devices?

Yes it will.

All the websites we design work on all devices. We use responsive web design techniques, where the website adapts to the size of the device on which it is being viewed.

What does this mean in reality?

It means your site does not require that annoying “pinch and zoom” you get on your phone when a website is not mobile ready!

Instead, visitors will get a nice and clean layout, with a font that is easily read on a phone or tablet.

What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

Search Engine Optimisation is all about setting your website up so that appears higher  in the search results on websites such as Google.

The higher up the results you are (eg. page one of Google) the more traffic (and customers) you are likely to get.

We ensure your website is set up to achieve optimal ranking on Google and can show you how to write ideal content so that you will be found for the words your clients or customers are searching for.

What is a Content Management System (CMS)?

A Content Management System (like WordPress) is a piece of software or tool that gives you the power to create pages and blog posts on your website yourself, without knowing all the “tech” stuff.

All our websites are built using WordPress (a CMS used by millions) so that means you have control over all your pages and posts, and can edit them just like you would a Word document! Yes, it is that simple.

Do you do ecommerce/Online Store websites?

No problem. Just let us know what you need, and we can whip it up for you.

Do you provide training?

Yes we provide all our clients with training on how to use their website once it is complete.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is your website address on the internet. For example this website is madlemmings.com.

Yours would be something like yourcomany.com (or perhaps with your country ending if you are not in the USA)

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is a service that holds all the “tech stuff” for your website and let’s people view it on the web when they type in your address (yourcompany.com)

It is quite simply a computer (aka server) that is somewhere in a big building with lots of other computers, and it is set up and designed to run websites.

Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?

Yes you do.

We recommend you get your domain name ahead of time (preferably a .com), but we can certainly help you choose the best and most appropriate hosting company for your website.

We do not provide website hosting ourselves.

Can you help me with Social Media?

No worries!

We are very active on social media and know all the ins and outs of spreading the word online!

So if you need anything social media related on your site, or your accounts set up on social media, we can certainly help.

What about Content Marketing or Blogging?

These are more or less the same thing.

Modern blogging is often called Content Marketing and is all about creating “content” that will be found and enjoyed by your potential customers or clients.

To get found on social media or Google it is a great idea to always create fresh and relevant content to bring people to your website again and again.

Can you write the content for my site?

We can certainly guide you in terms of content (blog posts, video etc) and what will get the best results on social media and Google.

And if you need content written for your website or blog, we can also help you find the right person for the job.

If you need something simple, no problem.

We will also help you with the styling and colors on your website.

But if you are looking for a complex logo or complete branding, we can bring in a specialist who works in this area.
