How many revisions are included in my design?
We start with a lengthy discussion about your likes/dislikes and also request examples of sites you like prior to designing a site draft for your review. 90% of our clients are excited about the draft we provide and we continue on tweaking that design to refine it for the client. On the rare occasion where you simply don’t like the design, we do without question provide up to two additional designs for your review with up to 10 design revisions for the selected design.
It’s our goal for you to be happy with our work and your website and we work with you to ensure that.
Is my deposit refundable?
In 99% of the cases, it is not refundable. There are rare occasions where we will agree to a refund or partial refund however the bulk of design work is done at the time of creation and deposits are taken to ensure everyone is fairly compensated for their work and effort. As we noted above, it is our genuine goal to make you happy so we do have open communication and dialogue and address any issues or concerns as soon as they are presented. We want you to have a great experience and we really want to develop a lasting relationship with you.
Why are SEO Services due upfront?
SEO is a very time consuming task that requires a great deal of industry research prior to doing the actual work. Proper optimization also takes a great deal of time and needs to be monitored and adjust regularly to be effective. We have incredibly affordable SEO prices and you’re welcome to compare our pricing as we are often 50% less than the competition and garner the same results.
We are also transparent with what we can/cannot achieve based on your industry, your current position and the competition. Getting to the first page of google is hard (if it wasn’t, there wouldn’t be a front page) and we have successfully achieved multiple ranks for clients on the first page for their respective industry by doing solid white hat SEO. We never promise quick fixes nor do we make first page in 30 day claims. We are transparent with all clients and clearly advise what expectations can be and provide regular reporting on all SEO packages.
