What does a website do?    Having a website is an excellent advertising tool to have whether an individual, organization/business (regardless of the size), it’s an electronic brochure, think of it as your internet business card to the world.  It allows people to find you on the internet, creates awareness that you exist, establishes credibility and presents your information, your image, and products to the internet.

How long does it take to create my website?   After all the required materials are provided for the site to the designer, it usually takes 3-4 weeks for a simple informative site.  Some sites are more detailed than others, in that case, more time will be required.

Can my existing website be improved?    Absolutely.  We can always redesign your current website.

Do you use website templates?    Yes, we can, at the client’s request, however, we strive to highly personalize and customize the templates.  And at times we design our own templates to create a unique and special feel to our custom sites.   In either case, we cater to our client’s specific want and needs.

Do you create your own graphics for every site?   Yes, we can.   Every client is different and requires a special touch in order to successfully be different amongst the crowd.

How does the designer come up with creative ideas for a site?   Keep in mind Web Designers are artists with expert computer skills.  We study our client’s needs and organize all their provided materials (photos, images, content, etc.), we then begin the creative process.  During the creative process, undivided attention is given to the project.   We go from an idea to an image, to visuals, to creation and then to publish the site.  The magic is created between the designer and the computer.

Is it important to update information on my website?    Yes, it is.  Absolutely important.  You want to make sure your site is current with up to date information.  Keeping your content fresh is critical, not doing so, can reflect poorly on your site’s reputation.

  1. Business tip, make sure you have your business plan ready to go, a website is only part of your marketing plan.
  2. Get creative, create the best name that identifies with and describes what you do.
  3. Do not share your strategy with anyone, till you have something set in stone that will commit you to your venture, some people close to you are ready to snatch your dreams, plans, and goals, trust no one till you have accomplished this 1st step.  You can trust us of course, because we work for you and your best interests, and we keep everything confidential.
  4. Once you are 1000% confident in your name, purchase your domain immediately.  Purchase your domain for at least 2 years.  We highly recommend you purchase your domains from, we’ve been clients since 2005 and love them, they have excellent 24-hour customer service support, offer great products and have our backs, they always go the extra mile to help out.  Yearly domain names should cost no more than $16 per year to register.
  5. When you are ready to move forward with your online presence, get a hosting plan that fits your needs.  Again, we highly recommend you purchase your domains and hosting plans from, they are your one stop shop with excellent customer service.
  6. Once you have your domain, your hosting in place and your content is ready to go, the fun visual creation process begins.  You will be given many options as to how/where to publish your content.  You will need a place to publish your website, we highly recommend Wordpress because it’s excellent, it’s provided for free with your hosting plan, it’s an open source content management platform made by the people for the people, most fortune 500 companies, journalists, public figures and celebrities use this platform, it’s a great place.   Thus, WordPress has a major learning curve that can take up to a year or more to master, it’s absolutely wonderful, they offer thousands of templates and pluggings for those who are not seeking to do their own work.
  7. If you prefer a custom website from scratch we highly recommend using page builder, it’s our favorite and what we use.  It’s an excellent modern and highly customizable builder, with endless web design capabilities to fit your needs, Themify offers excellent email customer support with tons of great youtube videos for knowledge.
