Below are a few common questions we face when starting a new project or maintaining an existing website.
A simple 5 – 10 page website usually takes between 4 – 6 weeks. What speeds up the process is having a good content plan. The larger the site (ie the more templates that are required) the longer it takes. Ecommerce and websites with complex functionality take longer to build as we spend more time testing.
Tools like Squarespace and Wix make it easy to build simple websites. But if your business relies on being competitive online, generating leads and sales – you should hire a professional to design and develop your website. We know what makes a site perform well and rise above the rest.
Yes! All websites should be regularly updated with new content and code maintained in order to keep them secure, performance & search optimised. A website is never finished.
This is a good question. It largely comes down to your business goals and how the website will need to function to achieve those goals. If you have clear idea of what you want to achieve online a web developer can then recommend a CMS that would best provide the functionality to suit. At The Fold we work with a handful of CMS’s (WordPress, Craft CMS & Shopify) – each have pro’s and con’s which we discuss with our clients before we build.
This might be a tough pill to swallow – but the average lifespan of a website is 2 – 3 years. Does that mean you need to replace yours – no. We provide an audit service to gauge the health state of the site looking at performance, usability, security, search optimisation. If it’s performing well enough – we can improve it.
