There are multitudes of "Web designers"
on the web who give you a form to fill out and from that will build
you a site. Estimating or constructing a site in this way
is hardly professional. It is ludicrous. It is misleading,
if not completely unethical. It is like asking an architect
to give you an estimate from a crayon drawing.
If a site designer is offering
to build you a site for a ridiculously low price, or if someone
is offering to host your site for free, ask yourself this - Why?
How long will they be in business giving away their product?
A professional web designer is
like an artist. If you want an original painting for $20,
expect to hang four dogs playing poker over your fireplace.
You will be getting exactly what you are paying for. I know
of no professional designer that gives his craft away.
What goes into a successful site?
Planning and work. We design sites like an artist. We
put research, effort, and expertise into our creative process.
Before we would even begin to estimate a site, we would need an
extensive discussion concerning your desires.
What is the purpose of the site.
What is the desired audience? How will the site be publicized?
What is the budget not only for development but also for marketing?
If a database is called for, what must be stored and how will it
be maintained? Where will the database reside? What
is the database engine? Is the database designed properly?
Has the site been story-boarded? The process is
one of good professional planning and strong technically skilled
Even after a visually pleasing
site is designed, it still might not be successful. The most
beautiful site in the world is useless if no one sees it.
The follow up effort is just as important as the production of the
site. Getting a good position in search engine results is
not an accident, it is a planned outcome.
Each search engine classifies web
pages differently. To be successful, a site has to come out
with a high rank in the top twenty search engines. To consistently
get high ranking takes research, testing, tuning the site, re-testing,
and doing it again. Successful sites are worked on continually.
If you want a cut-rate site,
DMCons is probably not the designer for you. If you want a
web site that is successful, and are willing to commit to that end,
we will commit to your success too.
