Frequently Asked Questions About Professional Website Design

Everything you want to know about custom websites & digital marketing

 HOW MUCH DOES A CUSTOM WEBSITE DESIGN COST? 

Custom website design costs are based on the scope & complexity of the overall project and volume of content. You’ll need a domain and premium hosting services to publish your site and allow visitors to access your website. An average business website of up to five pages can require a minimum of 18-24 hours or more to design plus additional time to provide proper website monitoring, maintenance & optimization. Our pricing includes everything you need for a high performance business website - custom website design, premium cloud hosting with SSL security certificate, regular website updates and changes - completed the same day, Google Analytics, Google Search Console and more.

You should expect to invest a minimum of $2,800+ for a quality, custom website design. Beware of lowball website design prices which often reflect inexperience, insufficient and/or inferior work. The shortcuts on bargain websites are difficult to detect and can negatively impact your business or even blacklist your domain on Google.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A WEBSITE DESIGNED & LAUNCHED?

At Flair Communication, we make the website design process easy for clients. You provide your website content via a simple website design questionnaire & provide photos and your logo (if available) and we take care of the rest. If needed, we can provide high resolution stock images and professional website copy editing (included). Custom logo design is available to website clients for an additional charge.

Our entire custom website design process can have your new business website completed and launched in 3 weeks or less!

CAN I USE MY OWN DOMAIN?

Yes, we can connect your custom domain to your new website if we have access to your domain account settings. Generally, we recommend clients purchase their own domain so they will have complete ownership and control over it now and in the future. 

Tips: Be sure to set your domain account to auto renew and make sure your payment method is up to date at all times. Your domain provider will send email reminders and ICANN regulations require verification of your domain contact information on a regular basis so make sure your account has a valid email address you check regularly (and a backup email address).

 

If you prefer, we can purchase a custom domain to use with your new website. We would take care of domain renewals, contact verification and other tasks. Your domain is full transferrable with your website should you choose to take over your website maintenance and management in the future. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY WEBSITE RANKED AT THE TOP OF GOOGLE?

Website ranking continuously changes. There are many variables that affect website ranking, including design quality & proper use/placement of design elements, how long the website has been online, website content, website optimization quality, external links that connect to your website, marketing services and competition.

Flair Communication follows best practices for search engine optimization (SEO) and website design to ensure your business website ranks well for your potential customers searching for your type of business and services. All of our client websites are instantly indexed on Google but it can take four to six months or more before Google can scan and catalog all of your website content details. There are no shortcuts but be assured that our clients’ websites typically rank on page one within a few months - even in highly competitive industries.

CAN I USE MY OWN DOMAIN?

Yes, we can connect your domain to your new website with login access to your domain account. Generally, we recommend clients purchase their own domain so they will have complete ownership and control over it.

Tips: Be sure to set the domain account to auto renew and make sure your payment method is up to date at all times. Your domain provider will send email reminders and ICANN regulations require them to verify your contact information on a regular basis so make sure your account has a valid email address you check regularly.
