Frequently Asked Questions
At 123 Simples we get asked very similar questions about our web design services from most clients. Therefore, we have put together a list of the most common questions and answers to help you make an informed choice about choosing one web design company or another.
Choosing us means you will be choosing a company that cares - a company that values loyalty and trust and has a caring attitude about its clients and its business dealings. We have put together many sites and webpages over the years, and those sites have set out what they were designed to do. Creating websites is a great challenge for us, and we love that challenge. We always aim to do our best to get your site up and running as quickly as possible, and we pride ourselves on our accomplishments. If you would like to view a selection of our customer feedback comments, then you can see why it makes sense to trust us with your site project.
To us a webpage is a page that generally will viewable in your monitor. However, that does not necessarily mean that it cannot be longer, and include scrollbars to the right hand side. Unless you have a television size screen, it would be pretty impossible to create a page that never needed scrolling (unless of course you wanted just a logo). So a webpage to us is the content that is aimed for that page. An example is this page. It will have scrollbars undoubtedly, but why spread it over "several" pages just so I don't need to use my mouse-wheel!
The timescale will depend on many factors, such as how much work are we currently covering, do we need to keep reviewing and altering page designs, and other factors that may crop up. Generally speaking, if the client has a clear idea of what they want, and we receive the necessary additional images and information from them, that they would like to appear on their site, we can probably turn it around in two to four weeks. Sometimes however, a site may be more complex, and it might take longer, but generally speaking the basics of a website can be done within 35 days.
In the majority of cases, there is no need for you to do this. Most of the work (especially if we are creating sites for people who are not local to us) is undertaken by means of email communications, perhaps phone calls, or even using Skype or MSN. Yes we have been visited by clients, or visited them, and held discussions face-to-face, but this is not a necessity, unless of course you want to pay for our travelling costs in which case we would gratefully accept.
Once your website is up and running we can offer you a full support package designed to help maintain and update as required certain elements of your website. Basically we can act as "agents" for your site, taking care of further updates, additional modifications if required, and report back to you on page rankings, visitors and the like. If we are taking care of your hosting for you, it makes the support even easier.
Help in choosing a web designer
How do I choose a web design company?
Basically you need to consider what it is YOU are looking for in a having a website. If you are looking for a brochure style website that gets your business noticed, then 123 Simples have designed many websites just like that. You need to know how long a web designer has been around, do they seem to have a good reputation, and can they show you any examples of current websites which are live and active.
Isn't bigger better!
Whilst a large web design company may seem to have the upper hand, the truth is you will be paying for the office staff, the building, the live chat, the freephone number, etc etc etc.
