Why should we hire WizeWebz?
We love what we do. There’s nothing more fulfilling for us than working with companies to help them grow. WizeWebz has experience with multiple front-end platforms and languages and has years of creative problem-solving exeperience. We strongly believe in the quality of our work and our ability to achieve the goals of our customers.
I’ve seen some highly advertised web services out there. Why shouldn’t we just use one of them?
These highly advertised website services have limited options and are generally referred to as “brochure” websites. In contrast, WizeWebz works with clients that are interested in engaging with their customers to produce specific results. Often we hear requests for updated designs to match branding, leaner performance and admin processes, search engine optimization, and marketing strategies that both drive traffic and engage visitors.
How much do your services cost?
All of our websites begin with an assessment of the goals you’re trying to achieve. This makes it very difficult to put together any set pricing structure. However, please reach out to us and we would be happy to put together an estimate for you.
What size clients does WizeWebz service?
WizeWebz works with a variety of clients ranging from individuals to growing businesses and agencies.
What type of development does WizeWebz provide?
Do I need hosting space? Does WizeWebz provide hosting?
Yes, all websites require hosting space to store files. Some web development companies group these costs in with their packages and some bill it separately. WizeWebz offers separate packages for hosting; We’re more than happy to work with you if you would like us to serve as your hosting provider.
We already have a website. Can you help us improve it?
Yes! Do you get the feeling your website is not generating the results it should have originally? This is on the main reasons WizeWebz is in business. We love turning projects around to achieve the goals our clients originally had in mind.
It’s also important to keep your website aligned with your growth. Are there operational tasks your website can handle, freeing your employees for more important tasks? Contact us for a whiteboard session; we’ll help you identify how your website can work harder.
What elements should my website include?
High Performing Websites will include:
- Connecting the company’s Reason for Being with their target customers’ Reason for Need succinctly above the fold
- Operational relief for employees; your website can shift routine tasks and content distribution from your employees freeing them for more important, higher skilled, tasks
- Customer Segmentation through logic pathways (optimal for companies targeting multiple audiences)
- Non-lead lead elimination; provide your employees with strong leads that have been qualified by your technology
Additional elements every good website should include:
- Simple Navigation
- Quality Content (e.g. message and images)
- Call to Action (e.g. email signup)
- Contact forms
- About Section
- Search Feature
- Web Fonts
- Whitespace/Relief (Don’t overwhelm your audience.)
- Informational Footer
- Google Analytics
- Email Client (stores collected email addresses)
- Additional Elements based on your goals
- SSL Certificate (Warning: Search engines will knock you without them)
Can WizeWebz help me get found in search results?
Yes, we can. To the extent we can bring you to the top of the results page depends on several factors. Search Engine Land does a great job of illustrating each of the criteria that collectively determine rank:
It’s also important to note that search engines, such as Google, periodically announce requirements that must be met to achieve or maintain rank. See our blog to learn about the November 2015 requirements.
Are WizeWebz sites mobile friendly?
Yes, all of our websites are responsive and work seamlessly across all devices.
Can you give me an overview of the process?
WizeWebz is big on communication and we treat our customers as if we were in their shoes.
We may be reached via phone, email, or text, your preference. A new client login was recently added to allow our customers to view their project status and important information at a time convenient to them. We hope our clients will find this new feature helpful if they choose to use it.
For all projects, we will begin by asking you a series of questions to get to know your company, competition, customers and goals. WizeWebz will then provide an outline (wireframe) of your website or project for your approval. Then, we’ll move on to type, color, images, and other content to achieve your desired aesthetic. With your approval, you’re done until we reach out to you with questions or the completed project/phase.
How long does it take to build a website?
You guessed it; it depends. It depends on the complexity and size of your project. Under normal workload most WordPress websites designed without complex integrations can be completed within 2 -3 weeks. Ecommerce websites may require additional time depending on the number of SKUs, sales channels, and platform. Magento websites generally require a minimum of eight weeks to develop and can go up from there, again, depending on the design and complexity. Feel free to reach out to us if you would like a time and cost estimate for your project.
How does the payment process work?
WizeWebz requires 25% of the total project fees and our signed proposal/contract to begin work on your project. Halfway through the project another 25% is due. The remaining 50% is due upon completion of the project.
In the event you decide to cancel your project with us, project fees are due proportionate to the amount of work completed. We’ll be happy to provide you with the work product.
Will you show me how to maintain my website?
Of course. If you would like to maintain your website post development, we’ll gladly walk you through the steps required to keep it up-to-date. Then, it’s all yours!
We also offer training or maintenance options dependent upon your level of desired engagement.
Will WizeWebz backup my website?
If you choose to host with WizeWebz, we’ll gladly backup your website on a regular basis. You can rest assured if you need us to revert to an earlier version, we’ll have backups. This is excellent peace of mind, especially, for clients who wish to maintain their own site.
Will WizeWebz help us refine our messaging strategy?
WizeWebz specializes in helping our clients create messaging hierarchies that succinctly tie their Reason for Being with their customers’ Reason for Need. Web viewers are conditioned to scan, both on desktop and mobile. Succinctly articulating your key benefits and purpose in bite-size pieces will create greater engagement and viewer retention. An effective website builds upon this key content.
Will you provide images and videos for my website?
Images and videos are considered content and are generally provided by the client. However, if you need these services, WizeWebz will help you create this content. Stock images are always an option, but are typically less effective than company specific content. Video is an effective way to add engagement to your website and social media. We’re happy to discuss ways to add this content.
What type of web servers does WizeWebz use?
WizeWebz uses dedicated servers. This means your website will be hosted in a secure space with other WizeWebz sites only. No other outside websites will be stored in these servers. This greatly limits the potential for malicious attacks on your website.
Can you provide a backup of my website if requested?
Does WizeWebz offer consulting?
Yes! We offer a variety of consulting services from business strategy, messaging strategy, design, development, customer engagement, social interaction, and special projects.
Can we monitor the progress of our project?
Yes, WizeWebz will provide a client login for you to monitor the progress of your project. From within the login, you’ll be able to view timelines, task lists, and messages; you can be as involved as you like.
How can we get started?
Reach out to us. After we discuss your project we’ll provide you with a timeline of your project as well as cost details. Work begins with deposit on the project fees and the signed contract.
