Frequently Asked QUESTIONS

Q:    In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for my new website?
A:    It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form. JPEGs, PNGs, EPS, TIF, AI, PSD, PDF, DOC are all acceptable formats. We also like to receive logos as vector art (EPS, AI files) or hi-res JPEGS, PNGs or TIFs. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.

Q:    How do I update my website?
A:    There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask Navesink Media to carry out these changes for you. If you plan on making more frequent updates, we can provide an online content management system (CMS) which allows you to easily update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. The incorporation of social media (blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc.) is also a great way to keep your homepage fresh.

Q:    Will my website design be Search Engine friendly?
A:    All our websites are created with search engines optimization in mind. All designs are compliant with search engine guidelines. Generally it takes around 4 weeks for a search engine to list your site (if it is not listed already), or 4 weeks before your rank improves and changes are reflected within search results. You should also be aware that search engines update their indices constantly. As a result, your site's position may fluctuate from month to month. The goal of our program is to achieve good overall visibility. It is also important to note that since search engines may change their algorithms and rules, our methods of optimizing your site may change over time as well. We adapt our methods to the changing search environment in order to employ the most effective strategies.

Q:    How long will it take for my web site to be designed?
A:    The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.

Q:    How much does a new, custom website cost?
A:    Many companies claim to offer cheap custom website design services, but true custom website design is a BRANDING process, not a DESIGN process. Each and every element of a your truly custom website design is planned and created specifically for your organization -- no templates, no cookie-cutter themes. Most of our custom websites cost between $800 on the lower end to $5,000 on the higher end. The large majority fall between $1,000 and $2,500.
