FAQs – Web Design

I’m not sure if anyone can build the website I have in mind. How do I know if you’re a fit?
We'll work with the design style you have in mind but take a look at our Portfolio and see the kind of work we do. Every client is unique, we'll apply our expertise and creativity to your needs and give you the look you want!

How is the cost of a new website determined?
Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs and not what we think the market will tolerate.

Do you offer customization to existing websites?
Of course! We primarily work with WordPress and love helping people with WordPress installation, theme configurations, customization, and plugin support. We can also help you with your current website, even if you're not using WordPress.

What payment options do you offer?
We accept checks or credit card payments via PayPal. All projects require a down payment of 50% to start and the remaining 50% at completion.

How long will it take to design and build my new website?
This is hard to say, as it varies by project. A small website can take as little as two weeks and a large, complex website can take up to three or four months. Once we know what you need we can give you a specific time frame.

What if I don’t have extra staff to keep up with the new website?
WordPress is really easy to work with, that's why we recommend it. But if you still think is too much work for you or you just don't want to bother with it... a simple monthly plan will keep our staff maintaining your information up to date.

Isn’t WordPress just for blogging?
Absolutely not! WordPress started as a blogging package, but it is now a full Content Management System (CMS) that is used around the world for creating both blogs and websites. You can learn more about WordPress at www.wordpress.org.

What kind of hosting do I need to support my WordPress website?
WordPress runs best on a Linux server with PHP capabilities. Most hosting companies will easily support these requirements. We'd be happy to provide hosting services if needed. Check out our Hosting Packages.

Can I update my website after launch?
The great thing about WordPress is the ease of use it provides. Each website design project includes training so you will be more than capable of updating and adding information as needed. If you don't want to maintain your own website, we offer ongoing maintenance plans.

I see you are based in Guatemala, do you just work with local Guatemala-based clients?
No way, José! We believe that talent is more important than location. We work with clients in and out of Guatemala. We are fully bilingual in English and Spanish and are available when you need us!

We don’t have a lot of high quality images so what do you suggest?
There are a number of websites that offer affordable stock images for use in website design projects. Just let us know what you are looking for.

Are your websites search engine friendly?
All of our websites are designed around Google’s guidelines for organic SEO. In addition to having a search engine friendly website, we will create a sitemap.xml file and submit it to Google and Bing upon launch. We will also create a 301 redirect file to help the search engines and visitors find the new pages based on the older pages that are already indexed.

I’m a horrible writer, so how can I possibly get content ready for website launch?
Don't worry about it! We can help you come up with all the unique content you need!
