Web Design – Frequently Asked Questions

Q How Long Does It Take To Create A Website?

Web Design by A La Carte Solutions in Beaumont, Texas begins designing your website as soon as payment is received from you. You will get you a draft of the homepage in two weeks and a live draft within a month. We will meet with you and make any changes if needed. Your website is not set live until you tell us you are ready. This is an ongoing process with our first meeting being the longest because we are thorough when getting all of your business information, but after that, leave it to us. We know you are busy running your business, so we will try and take care of everything else.

Q Can I See My Website While It’s In Progress?

Web Design by A La Carte Solutions knows you want to see the progress, so we will provide you with a temporary URL live link so you can see your website as it is built.

Q Why do good websites cost so much?

With Web Design by A La Carte Solutions in Beaumont, Texas, we design unique amazing looking websites you will be proud to show off! It is a custom design with all the latest features in a modern design. We don’t want your website looking like everyone else’s! You need a unique look people will remember you by that brands your business as well as gives anyone going to it a unique and positive experience! Cheaper websites are template looking and just that, cheap! You get what you pay for and if you want to know your website is taken care of while you run your business, Web Design by A La Carte Solutions is who you want handling it! We take care of everything!

Q Why should you never have a “friend” or someone in your “family” design your website for free?

The same reason you don’t offer to spend about 40 + hours creating something for them and then they don’t have time to maintain it for you or make changes when you need it. Then, no one can find it or the information isn’t correct! Why? Because they are doing it in their free time and when was the last time you saw someone with free time? :) Seriously, if you have someone who knows what they are doing and has the time to dedicate to you, then by all means, have them design your website. However, I have never met anyone who said, “My friend/family member designed my website and maintains it for free, AND it is up to date and amazing!” In my experience, it never gets finished. They don’t have time to dedicate the hours every week to maintain it or make changes when you need it. You need your business to be represented ASAP online and to be maintained so people can find you, call you or find out what you do NOW or they are going to your competitor that is online NOW!  A great built and maintained website markets for you and is a 24/7 employee! What is that worth to you? Don’t miss out on the thousands of searches every day when people “Google it” and are looking for what you do because right now your competitors are getting all those customers and not you!

Q How much should a good website cost?

A good custom design website is very time consuming. People think that it’s a drag and drop and just enter the information like a form task, but it’s not. A good built amazing looking website with the latest features you can use as a resource as well as a marketing tool on the web, is not a small task! Instead of printing brochures and they just get lost or thrown away, you can have a 24/7 employee telling everything you want your customers to know about it even when you’re closed! What is peace of mind worth to you? The old saying, “You get what you pay for” is so true! If you want to worry about your website, not see your rep after the check is cashed and never get a return call when you need something changed or have a problem, by all means, go with someone else where the product is cheap! But if you want to be able to sleep at night knowing your website is taken care of and running perfectly, up to date and marketing for you, give Web Design by A La Carte Solutions a call today! We love providing excellent customer service because your marketing dollars should ALWAYS be well spent! Ask us about our 100% Money Back Guarantee!

Q How do I know you know what you’re doing?

The proof is in the puddin’! Go check out our Showcase page! We are Google certified so know what Google ranks websites for and how to get you to the top! Most of our websites rank on the first page of Google if not at the top and with our basic option! We do offer more aggressive SEO (what gets you to the top of Google when using keywords) Packages if you are in a very competitive industry.

Q How Many Changes Can I Make To My Site Without An Additional Cost?

The annual maintenance fee we offer to host and maintain your website includes 24/7 monitoring, updates, and always includes free changes on existing pages and content at no extra charge.

Q I had a new website built….what next?

Nothing, right now. Web Design by A La Carte Solutions provides basic SEO with all of our websites. After we get done taking care of all of the on-site SEO tasks, we will send it to Google and see where your brand new website ranks. If you’re not the first result at the top of the page on Google, we can talk about doing a more aggressive SEO campaign off-page for an additional cost. Most of our websites result on the first page of Google when people are searching for what you DO and DON’T know your name. We won’t over-charge you for SEO you don’t need before we know where your new website ranks. Especially if you purchased the Social Media & Business Listings Package because our websites and this package will most likely get you to the top!

Q: I Need Some Changes On My current Website, need help updating my website, or need help writing content. Do You Provide That Service?

Web Design by A La Carte Solutions in Beaumont, Texas does offer an hourly rate and would love to see what you’ve got and whether we can help. We won’t know until we speak with you and take a look at what you have currently. So give us a call today and make an appointment. We always offer free estimates and even if you just have some questions while trying to do a website yourself, information is free, so give us a call.

Q: Is it good to have videos on my website?

Yes! It is very good to have a video on your website because it just simply provides another option for a user to get the information about what you do or see it for themselves! Google ranks websites higher with videos on them. You don’t want too many videos because it weighs down your website page and takes longer to load. There is a right way and wring way and we do it right! If you need help with adding a video to your website, give us a call.

Q: Will you provide a full copy/backup of our site if requested?

We always keep a full backup copy of your website because it takes time to build these websites, and we are constantly updating them. Also, if for any reason you want to take your website down or move it to another hosting, we will be glad to carefully pack it up and migrated it over to the hosting of your choice.

Q What makes you different from your competitors?

Web Design by A La Carte Solutions works for you and wants you to have the best experience. They want you to know your marketing dollars are well spent! Many of our competitors hold their clients hostage by making them sign contracts, or you don’t actually own your website!

We want to earn your business 100% of the time and is the exact reason why we offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee and NEVER ask our clients to sign a contract!
