What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
At My Favorite Web Designs, our web design services are billed at $60 per hour. For SEO and marketing services, we charge $30 per hour with a minimum monthly budget of $300.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When working with a new customer, we schedule an in-person, phone, or virtual meeting to discuss SEO, online marketing, and web design goals.
Your individual account manager works with you, walking you through each step, so we can get you started on a monthly SEO program.
For new web design customers, our web designers consult with business owners on design elements and goals. Rather than editing your current site, we provide you with a test domain to review the new site's look and feel. After revisions are made and the new design is finalized, we take ultimate care to retain the value of your domain during the transition.
What types of customers have you worked with?
At My Favorite Web Designs, we provide web design & SEO services. This means our service makes the most sense for you if you intend on promoting your website at some point. If you really do not care to promote it, we may not be the ideal company for you.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure your SEO is white hat. Make sure they understand the new SEO penalties. Make sure they include social media in their approach. Make sure the SEO company reports their time and content built, and look at the quality you are getting in the content relative to the time.
For the website portion, make sure it is the same company doing the web design. Make sure they are not outsourcing it, get that in writing. If they are outsourcing your web design, make sure it is not to another country, or it is likely communications breakdowns will ensue, it is inevitable.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Before starting on SEO services, we would recommend looking for a local company to work with that avoids outsourcing work and black-hat SEO techniques. At My Favorite Web Designs, our company practices no outsourcing, automation, or black hat marketing techniques. All of our Arizona SEO strategy is white hat and is performed in-house by experienced SEO specialists.
