What will my website include?
All our sites feature responsive design — your website will detect what kind of device it is being viewed on, and respond by adjusting its layout accordingly. Your website will look good whether you are looking at it on your phone, tablet, or laptop. All sites include email buttons for viewers to easily send you an email, and phone numbers that can be tapped to dial on a mobile device. All our sites are Google compliant and Search Engine friendly. We’ll make sure your company description includes important keywords (see FAQ below) for your industry and location so customers can find you on the web. Social media integration is available if you have facebook or other accounts you’d like to link to. Your site may also include client testimonials, featured projects and/or photo galleries. We’ll work with you to determine which features will serve you best.
Will I see my website before it goes live?
Of course. You’ll have a chance to review and approve everything before we launch the site.
What are "keywords"?
Keywords are the words and phrases that people most commonly enter into search engines like Google when looking for something online. It’s important to include keywords so people have a better chance of finding your content among the search results. Built2Plan has researched the keywords for the homebuilding industry, and will help you incorporate them into your company profile.
What is the turnaround time?
Once we receive all images and text from you, and depending on the complexity of your site, your website should be online within 3-5 weeks.
What else do I need to know?
Owning and maintaining a website is a lot like owning a car in a city. There’s the initial purchase price of the vehicle, and the ongoing costs to keep it maintained and garaged. After talking with you and discussing your specific needs, Built2Plan will work up a cost estimate with line items for everything below, but in the meantime, here is an overview of the components: Website Design: The initial cost of your website, like a car, will depend on how many features you want. We don’t advocate “fancy for fancy’s sake,” and will work with you to find an economical solution. The cost to design your website is a one-time fee. Domain name: Your domain name (www.yourwebsite.com) is like your license plate — it allows you to drive on the road and it uniquely identifies your car. If you don’t already have a domain name, Built2Plan will help you buy the best available one. Your domain name will be an ongoing annual cost for the life of your website. Website hosting: A hosting company is like your parking garage — it both houses your website files and determines when you have access to them. If there are problems at the hosting end, your website may not be visible until they are resolved. We can help you get set up with a reputable hosting company with 99% uptime and quality technical support. Hosting your website will be an ongoing annual cost for the life of your website. Website maintenance: Like a car, your website needs to be maintained. Hackers continue to create new viruses while the software companies feverishly write updates and patches to safeguard against them. We contact our clients annually to update their website’s software.
