It depends on what you want. Some companies can build you something cheap for under $1000 and others can cost over 100K. Most of the sites I've built are between $4000-6000 as they tend to be small sites although I've build big ones too. It depend, call me at 778.980.2711
and I'll chat with you about it.
It depends on if you do a flat-rate build or go on my monthly content retainer plan. A flat-rate build can take between 30-60 days depending on my schedule. The general process is as follows: discovery (3-4 one hour meetings to determine your core business plan, design and develop, and finally launch and testing. My retainer plan is a little more involved and can take as long as 12 months to complete the whole process.
Absolutely. I built my first 10 websites on Wix and I still use it for little projects from time to time. The service I provide—apart from building a website—is helping small and medium-sized businesses come up with a digital marketing strategy that rivals any large business. I also work on WordPress which gives me a little more versatility when it comes to design capabilities. But I would have no problem recommending any CMS (content management system) that will help you grow your business.
People access the internet on all sorts of devices of many different shapes and sizes (not to mention browser technology, etc.) Responsive design mean that your site will work on everything from a Desktop PC to a Kindle Fire to an iPhone X and all points in between.
In order to maintain trust and accountability with you clients and customers it is important to keep up with the times. Having said that, if your site is working for you, there is no sense in fixing something that isn't broken. In my experience, site design seems to last anywhere from 3-5 years, but that it all really depends on what business your in and how savvy your users are.
