Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Why should I hire a web designer?
A: To establish a strong professional image on the internet. A web site designer can create your web site quickly and efficiently, while also optimizing your pages for maximum search engine results. A common mistake among small and medium-sized businesses is to create their site themselves as a cost-saving measure. What they don't realize, though, is that a poor design on your web site can drive people away from doing business with you.
Q: I would like a web site for my business. Where do I start?
A: The best place to start would be to provide any current marketing literature, especially with your company logo. If you don't currently have a domain name (such as www.scorchingweb.com), then you should contact us as soon as possible in order to reserve your place on the internet. If you're starting your business from scratch, and don't have a logo, we can help with that too!
Q: I have a limited budget for my nonprofit organization.
Can I afford a web site?
A: Scorching Web Design & Marketing offers substantial discounts to nonprofit organizations. This is one of our ways of giving back to the community.
Q: I already have a web site, but I don't show up on the search engines.
Can you help?
A: Yes. We can examine your site to determine the problem and implement the solutions. There are several factors that influence search engine rankings. Check out our Web Site Marketing Services for more information.
Q: What is the difference between web design and web maintenance?
A: Web design is the actual creation (or re-creation) of the web site. Web maintenance is making changes or updating the content that's already on the site.
Other useful information
Here are some things to consider to minimize our involvement, thus decreasing the cost of your site:
• Decide on a general layout for your site.
• Are there specific colors you'd like to use (such as company colors)?
• Is there a web site that is almost "exactly" what you want? If so, just provide the URL address(es). We can pattern your site accordingly.
