Frequent Questions About Web Services
What is pixel-perfect design?
We aim to provide you with a great user experience that feels perfect on every device – from small phones to big iMacs. The technologies we use allow us to adapt the content in a way that is visually perfect. Our attention to detail has no awkward spacing or type styles, an adapting user interface, and layouts that are separately optimized for conversion rate. The Starwheel treatment means it looks perfect, not sloppy.
How long does completing a website take?
We generally say 2 months for a medium-sized 5-8 page website. If all of the content was ready and there were not many revisions, we could probably get the site done in 1 week. We’ve done smaller websites in a few days. However, we recommend taking time to have the right messaging and allowing us time to experiment. During our initial call, we’ll decide and stick to a reasonable time frame. We meet our deadlines.
Who will be working with me?
You will be working with Bernard, the owner of Starwheel and project manager. This isn’t a big web design agency where you get a receptionist and have to wait for a callback. Simply email, call or text. He has great people skills and experience working with a wide range of different businesses and organizations. So whatever questions you have, he’s heard before and likely solved a similar problem. You get a one-on-one open line of communication throughout the whole process.
What is responsive web design?
Responsive web design means that the layout of a website will change based on screen width. Generally, mobile websites are a more simple layout. Most layouts are 1 column. This is because the content would be very squished if the layouts behaved like larger screens. Desktop layouts are more complicated with layouts that span between 1 or 5+ columns. Layouts on the tablet could be any of these or something in between.
The way we code this is that there are certain screen width dimensions where layouts change. This is called a breakpoint. If the screen width is 767px and above, we are at the tablet and the layout will change. If we are at 1024px and above we are at Desktop and the layout will be the most complex.
What techniques do you use to convert visitors?
We specialize in conversion optimization. You want to communicate/convince/manipulate ‘why’ someone should buy from you. And make it easy to buy. Here is what we generally do:
- Have a clear simplified message on the home page. This should communicate what you do and the ultimate value you provide.
- Highlight features and benefits – stressing benefits which is what the customer really cares about.
- Incorporate your unique value proposition in a headline
- Communicate empathy by highlighting pain points and proposing your product/service/organization as the solution.
- Show products/services/pages with an ability to learn more. This is good for users in the research phase.
- Establish trust. This can be done with testimonials, show logos of affiliation like as seen on TV/websites/publications etc. or memberships.
- Use ‘by the numbers’ to show accomplishments.
- Have a good call to action. Make this very prominent and easy to access.
- Outline step-by-step process showing the customer how to get started. This complements the call to action.
Can't I just do it myself?
Some DIY solutions have some pretty decent tools. This is good if you’re on a really tight budget and have good computer skills. However, with DIY, you’re still doing the marketing, design, SEO, etc. A true web professional would do a much better job.
WordPress can do so much more. And the Elementor page builder for WordPress is far superior. We rarely code it’s all visual now too. So the “you don’t need to code” applies to WordPress design too. I would say if you wanted to do it yourself, stay away from WordPress. The initial learning curve is too much. But as a client, our WordPress-based system is the most user-friendly out there. So by hiring us you get the most powerful, user-friendly, and robust option.
I would say if your budget is around $500, that you’re in the DIY category. Maybe hire us later with a larger budget or ask about one of our payment plans.
