Belleville Web Design and Development

In the current competitive landscape of Belleville web design I stand out with the quality of my services and a commitment to proper client care. I won’t just build you a website, I’ll treat it like one of my own, and ensure you get the best website design for your business.

Website Design

My process will depend largely on the the unique goals for your website design, as well as your preferences and the amount of content you’re able to provide. In a typical website contract it is the client’s responsibility to provide all content. This is the most cost-effective option, however it may not be the best for you. Creating web content takes time and expertise which you may prefer to outsource, and if it isn’t optimized to pull the almighty eyes of Google, it won’t get the kind of attention you’re hoping for.

My general recommendation for affordable web design for businesses that are just getting started online is a 1-3 page website with basic brochure functionality. This is quite literally like an online brochure which you can show to anyone, anywhere simply by providing a link, for example via email, social media, word of mouth, or business card. If you want people to organically stumble across your site using a search engine, however, you’ll need to some SEO to capture the spiders’ hearts.

Website Maintenance and Care

While you do have the option of buying your website outright and performing maintenance and care yourself, it’s my recommendation that most business owners should outsource these activities. The nature of web design and development is that, until you become something of an expert, the process can be long and painful. In most cases I find that entrepreneurs benefit much more from focusing on their own business rather than worrying about resizing images and matching colors and creating custom landing pages.

While the beginning of a client-developer relationship is always interesting in web design, within a few months of regular communication you’ll learn the vocabulary and be able to more effectively communicate your desires. At the same time, I’ll be learning more about your taste and style. This will make the creation of additional web pages in the future easier and faster, and allow us to focus on the important considerations such as content and SEO.

Small Business Web Design: Common Questions

What do I need to get a website?
There are esentially two components to a website: the domain name, and the hosting environment. A domain name is the URL of your website, and I recommend getting yours from https://domains.google.com. Hosting is the server space in which your website actually exists, and there are more web hosting providers in Canada than you can shake a stick at. Because of this, I recommend that my clients let me host their websites for them. I’ve put significant time and energy into finding the best hosting for my websites, and I would hate to see a client’s site compromised by an uninformed choice.

WordPress vs. Wix: Which is better?

If you want my honest opinion, a self-hosted WordPress website is the best option for your small business website design. WordPress is much more flexible, professional, and closer to the cutting edge of web development. It has better SEO tools available and more options artistically, which would be enough for most developers on its own.

However, Wix is not without its merits. For some Belleville businesses, a low cost is the most important factor when considering web design and maintenance. If this is the case for you, Wix may work better as a starting point because they have slightly less expensive month-to-month costs than the website care packages I provide.

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing a platform for your business’ website design and development, and I’m happy to discuss the options in a free initial consultation. Email me at alex@alextucker.ca to set one up!
