Take A Deeper Dive Into Our Website Development Process & Product
Read through the answers to some of the common questions we get asked about our website development services.
Do you develop using a widely available premium WordPress theme?
We do not build websites using premium themes; instead we use our own in-house WordPress theme. Through our decade working in the industry, we have found that premium themes often have significant shortcomings and so our team developed our own theme – Blueprint. As a result, we have full knowledge of the theme and are able to make certain customizations to meet client needs.
How much does a website cost?
Although very simple and straightforward projects can be significantly less, most of our website development projects usually run between $5,000 and $15,000. This includes everything in the website development process, even copywriting.
How long does a website take to build?
Most of our website development projects take three months to complete. In this time, we take a deep dive into your brand and your goals and undertake a 10-step, 200-task process to build a website that provides your business with an impressive and effective digital presence.
What platform do you build on?
We work exclusively on the WordPress content management system.
What is the difference between working with an agency vs. a freelance web designer?
Our in-house process was developed over the course of a decade, incorporating many elements we often see missing from websites developed by freelancers. Freelancers are usually good at a couple of parts of the website development process but as a single entity it is difficult to fully master all aspects of a website build. For example, a freelancer who is skilled in the development portion of a website may not have the copywriting skills to effectively optimize your site for SEO while clearly getting your message across. Working with Anania Media, you have access to a full team, with each member playing a key role in the different parts of your website’s construction.
Can I use a different host for my website?
Not using Anania Media hosting for your website is not a deal-breaker, but we do strongly recommend you host your website with us. Primarily, this is because it makes it easier to ensure your website is a part of our maintenance program. Hosting with us also allows our team to add performance and security features to your website. If you do opt to use a different host, there will be an additional $300 migration fee.
Does a website built by Anania Media need to be maintained?
We generally find that monthly maintenance is overkill for most of our clients and recommend updates to their website be done once a quarter. We advise updating on a regular basis to patch for any new performance features and to protect against any security threats.
