What is web design?

Web design is a term that means the creation and maintenance of a website. Within the web design field, you'll find different specialties, such as graphic design, logo design, search engine optimization, internet marketing, copywriting. We work with a team of experts in each of these areas to build you a website that will power your company.

What is the difference between web design and development?

Web design refers to the way your website looks. Just think of it like the outside of your car and the interior where you "live." Web development refers to your site's backend -- like your cars engine, transmission, drive train, and all the other working parts that you don't see (unless you're a mechanic). We work with providers who build the best software using the most secure code to build you a rock solid "car" to drive your online venture.

How do I add click to call phone numbers to my WordPress website?

Are you wanting your website visitors to be able to click the phone number of your website to call you -- either from the computer or from their cellphone. With our Thrive Suites system, it's super easy. Just follow these instructions

How much should a website cost?

Web developers charge from $75 to $180 per hour, which means you'll end up paying a developer up to $10,000 to build a functioning website. Your web designer charges from $60-90 per hour, which means up to $10,000 to build a beautiful, user-friendly website. We work with experts in both areas to bring you a website experience that costs half of what you'd pay if you had to hire a developer and a designer. Additionally, we offer DIY options for those of you who want to use the tools we've built to create your own home on the internet.

What is a website builder?

A website builder enables you to add content and change the design of your site without touching any code or paying thousands of dollars in web design fees to add a page or product to your website. Costs for site builders range from $6 to $299 per month. We include Thrive Architect in all of our websites so that you can easily add pages, posts, sales letters, and other content to your website, whether we build your initial site and you take over or hire us for ongoing maintenance, or choose to go the DIY route for your entire project.

What are the steps in the web design process?

The first step in our web design process is an initial consultation where we discuss the ultimate goal for your website. We'll also talk about how you expect your website to function (what do you want your visitors to do when they arrive at your site) and how it will look. Finally, we'll talk about your budget. Once you hire us, we will install the software you need to make your website work and create a template design. You will have an opportunity to review and approve the template design at that point. What revisions have been made and you've approved the final template design, we'll begin adding content to your page: page copy, blog posts, images, products, etc. Your website will go through a round of revisions at your request, and then we'll hand the keys to you. At that point, either you maintain and update your website content yourself, or you hire us to manage your website for you.
