FAQs Frequently Asked Questions about Website Design

What do you want to know about web design?

What Does a MEANit Website cost?

Marketing-Website-Design-TeamThis is the most common question. And, usually the worst one to ask. The truth is that this varies depending on the competitiveness of your industry. And how well your competitors are doing. If you want to out do the competitor, then you need to do a better job on your website than they do on theirs – simple.

See our Pricing page for guidelines HERE.

However, in short for us to give you any sort of accurate quote for designing your website, we would need to talk with you.

This is to get to understand you and what you want to achieve.

  • Do you want to look professional?
  • Increase sales?
  • Compete with some competitor?
  • Save time?
  • Recruit staff?
  • Who is your target market?
  • Do you already have a website?
  • What is it not doing for you?
  • Do you have a brand, a logo, a look?
  • Are you looking for a Dacia Duster or a Lexus RX? They will both go from A to B, but the performance is different, as is the road holding, how it looks to people and how comfortable it is to drive. And the budget is quite different.
Do you have an hourly web design rate?

MEANit-Business-GrantsWe do have an hourly rate for Ad Hoc work which is €125 whereas our rate for our clients is just €75.

Generally, we do not look to do Ad Hoc work on sites we did not develop, as we do not know what is behind the scenes.

Clients must be on one of our Care Plans otherwise how can we work on a site that is not being cared for.

 

There are generous grants of 50% available for building or upgrading or marketing a website – ask us about them.

How long does a website take to design and develop?

MEANit-Small-Business-Website-DesignAgain, a very common question. The answer is we can design in a week and develop in a week or two, so in theory it is two or three weeks.

Short answer:
One week to do the actual development – maybe two depending on the size of the project.

Longer answer:
4 to 8 weeks on average. Initially, the chosen web design agency needs to ask loads of questions about you, your company, the services or products you offer, your market, what problem do you solve and for whom. How will this website benefit you or your clients? Why are you building it? What results do you expect?

The agency has to determine if you need a website, what type of website do you need at this time, then write up a simple proposal with an estimate for you to consider.
Then if you take them on, they will write up a Brief or plan for you to approve. Then draw a wireframe or sitemap or layout for you to approve. Then they move on to do a mockup design or prototype for your approval, before the go to actual development.
We schedule a week within the 4 weeks from the date we get the final content.

During all that time, you need to gather all your website content as in photos and text, whilst they will be doing discovery for you.  You might engage them, just to do the Discovery initially. They cannot or should not start any development until you have given them all the content you want in the website – text and photos for all pages. That content is your responsibility to gather, unless you want to engage them to do that for you too, as an extra service, IF they offer it.

Imagine the web design agency is the builder, so they build the house based on the agreed architects plans or layout, but you have to bring the furniture, as in the content, photos and text etc.

Once the site is built and all the content is added, they move on to testing before actually doing the search engine optimisation before going live and testing

 

 

 

Do you have a Website Design Process?

MEANit-Small-Business-Website-DesignWe have a very defined 10 step website design process, which is explained in detail at https://meanit.ie/our-process/

In short it takes you from where you make an initial enquiry, to us having a short meeting to work out if we are a good match for each other.

If we are a good match, we send you a Proposal for your consideration.
Upon your approval of the proposal, we arrange a longer meeting to get all the information we need from you about the project. We write up a Brief for your approval.

Then draw a Wireframe or sitemap or layout for you to approve. Then they move on to do a mockup Design for your approval, before the go to actual development.
We schedule a week within the 4 weeks from the date we get the final content.

Do you offer ongoing website support and maintenance?

Relationship-selling-Advice-Ireland

Yes – we offer ongoing website support, maintenance, training and search engine optimisation. Tell us what you would like us to do for you.

In theory anybody can build or develop a website of some sort, there are loads of free or low cost options. No, they are not all effective. However, with over 20 years experience and a great Irish web design team, we know and understand the wed dev tools. And which ones to use for you. We never build poor websites or deliver a poor website for small money. We have to be able to stand over our website work. Is that old fashioned? Maybe so, but it is our way of working. We do not cut corners. We value your trust.

 

 

 

Do you offer ongoing SEO Search Engine Optimisation?

MEANit-SEO-Costs-Tools-and-Tips

Yes – we offer initial and/or ongoing SEO Search Engine Optimisation. This is what gets the website found in the first place. And managing it on an ongoing basis will help improve the website more and more.

Without ongoing SEO work the website just drops down the rankings, as your competitors work on their own seo.

Ideally our clients keep us engaged at some level to manage their ongoing SEO – see our SEO Plans HERE. It depends on how much business you want to generate in any given year.

 

 

 

Do you offer eCommerce website design?

Online-Payments

We can do eCommerce for Manufacturers and Professional Services Businesses, where we can guarantee a return on your  investment.  However we avoid eCommerce for Enterprise or Retail or Enterprise.

Unfortunately, whilst we can build such sites, we find that it is a very compettive market for retailers, so it is hard for us to ensure a good return on your investment.

You would be competing with so many massive platforms from Amazon to Google, to Facebook and many more. Therefore the required investment is usually a lot more than most people can envisage.

The eCommerce sites we do develop, perform well, deliver a return on investment and are the right option for each client.

Can you guarantee more sales ? Will we definitely make more money ?

We may be able to generate more traffic, better traffic, more enquiries, however it is ultimately still down to you to make or close the sale. If we get 100 more people a month to your door, how many can you convert?
