Question: How can I make updates to my site after it is published?
If your site is designed with a Content Management System, you should be able to make minor changes yourself. However, since we work for you our design team is available for unlimited updates within your Net Solutions Today hosted site. When you host your site with us, we provide additional design modifications at no additional cost to you. For a quick update to your site, simply call or send us a message and we’ll hop to it.
Question: How can I increase traffic to my site?
There are several methods for increasing site traffic. Pay-per-click (PPC) advertisements are great options but can be a bit costly if managed improperly. We’d suggest that you have all your ducks in a row in regard to design before jumping into a pay per click campaign. A great way to increase traffic is accomplished through organic search optimization and offsite links, the web’s “word of mouth”. All of our sites are developed with the organic approach in mind. So when we design your site, it already has the “guts” needed to gain search rankings. With our intelligent design, your site will have the guts and the brains to out-perform your competitors with first page local search rankings and lower cost PPC advertising.
Question: How long should I expect before my new site is up and running?
All sites require a slightly different amount of time for development. Generally, our development team will complete the “initial design” within 7-14 days or sooner. After your review, we’ll complete any requests for additions or modifications. A finished site should be achieved within 2-3 weeks. And remember, no hosting payment is due until your site is complete. (918) 921-6249 OR (866) 981-6851
Question: What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. You engage in SEO when you attempt to rank a page higher SERP’s (Search Engine Ranking Pages). SEO is used to increase organic traffic to a website.
Question: What is better, SEO or PPC?
Both are imperative for success. You can’t get traffic naturally without SEO but at the same time you can’t address specific demographics without PPC (Pay Per Click). To establish domain authority and promote branding, you should utilize both.
Question: What is on-page SEO?
On-page SEO refers to specific tactics used to rank a page higher on search engines. These can be anything from keyword content to HTML source code. This does not include external links or external signals.
Question: What if I already have a website with Go Daddy or Wix?
If you already have an existing website, we can take over the hosting and maintenance. We can also redesign and optimize your website while keeping your exisiting domain name. Contact Net Solutions Today to find out what your options are.
Question: Is a custom design REALLY better than an attractive template?
If your in a rush and need a site launched in a few days, a template can be used. However, a custom designed site will give you more options visually, as well as increased optimization. Therefore, a template should only be used in the short term and not an exception to the rule.
Question: Can my new website accept payments?
Yes. We can integrate payment software so that your clients can pay you via credit/debit card or paypal. We can also incorperate other features such appointment bookings, event listing, directories and more.
Question: What pages do I need for my website?
We recommend a home page, about page, services page, inquery page and contact page. A home page is the first page your customers will see and should include a strong design element and call to action. A contact page will tell your customers where to find you and increase local search results.
Question: What information do you need from me to get started?
We can set up an initial consultation to get to know you and your business. To streamline the design process, we will get to know you and your target audience. From this we can determine what key components and what content should be included in your website.
Question: When can I expect to see results?
There are hundres of factors that go into determining where your website lands in search results. Using proper keyword content and licensed images can increase the rate at which your website climbs. We often expect to see first page results within 60-90 days. We also perform monthly site audits and monitor analytics to improve ranking quality.
