We have a strong design philosophy when it comes to our websites, “Sophistication in Simplicity”. Our Sarasota web design websites are clean, effective, and present your message clearly. The ultimate goal is to convert the visitor into a paying customer.

Speed optimized web design

improving your user experience

The speed of your website greatly impacts the user experience. Our Sarasota web design services are highly optimized for fast loading speeds. We ensure that we do everything we can to minimize the amount of data being transferred in order to render the website. This includes image optimization, reducing any scripts that would need to be loaded, enabling features like lazy load which only loads images once you scroll to their position instead of loading everything upfront, and enabling fast caching. With a lot of users browsing the web on their mobile data, it is a necessity for your website to load quickly. A tool that we like to use to measure website loading speeds is GTMetrix.

Our Sarasota web design process depends on the size of the website and the required functionality. On average, it usually takes us between 1-2 weeks to design and develop a small business website. Larger websites can take up to 3-4 weeks. A major factor in completion time comes down to how quickly the client can provide us with the necessary content.

What is your Sarasota web design process?

Once you’ve decided to hire us for your website design needs, we’ll schedule a call to collect some information about your business to aid in the website design process. We’ll ask you to find a few websites that you like which we will use for inspiration as well as general questions about your business, the image you want to portray, and any branding guidelines you may have.

From there we will send you your first bill. Once it has been paid we will begin designing your website on a development server which you’ll be able to access at any time to view changes in real-time.

Once the website has been fully developed we will send you the link to the website for your final approval. Once approved we will send you a bill for the second half of the payment if you chose the one-time payment option. Then we’ll migrate the website over to your hosting provider and make your brand new website live!

Will I be able to update and maintain my website once it’s built?

Yes! All of our clients will get login credentials for the website so that you will be able to maintain it yourself. We’ll even help you understand how to maintain and update your website.

If I don’t want to update my website myself, can you do it?

Yes! If you chose a monthly website design package, one of our website maintenance plans are included! Check out our website maintenance page to view what all is included with those services.

Do I need to buy a domain name and hosting?

We urge businesses to buy their own domains and hosting services. While many companies will provide those for you, they end up owning the domain and the website. If you ever choose to switch to a different website design agency they may hold your website hostage or make it extremely difficult to transfer to another company. If you own the domain and hosting it eliminates most of the stress of having to switch companies and possibly changing the domain of your website.

Can you help me promote my website?

Absolutely, we wouldn’t be much of a marketing agency if we couldn’t! Our SEO services will help you generate organic traffic through search engines like Google. Our PPC advertising services will help you push initial paid traffic to your website. If you are looking for all of these services, we offer a Digital Marketing Starter Package which includes website design, SEO, and PPC to help ignite your business.
