How much does a new website cost?
It doesn't matter if you're just starting your business or have been in business for 20 years, we understand that cost is a huge factor in making your decision about creating a new website.
Weblii doesn't have a one size fits all solution because we build every website to be customized to your business needs and just as no two businesses are the same, neither are their websites.
That said, our website packages start at $499 for custom landing pages and go up to $6000 for custom eCommerce shops.
How long does it take to create a new website?
Time is money, everyone knows that. Our goal is to always deliver your new website as fast as possible, however, just as each website is different, the amount of time can vary as well.
We can get a custom landing page published for your business in as little as 24 hours, and basic websites in as little a 7 days.
We've created an easy and stress-free process for our customers. That's why in most cases, depending on the availability and complexity of the copywriting and design, a typical web project takes 1-3 months from start to finish.
How is using Weblii different than a typical web design firm?
There are a number of reasons that Weblii is different.
For starters, we have a simpler, more efficient process to get businesses online.
With most other web design companies, boring and complex steps, like mind mapping, wireframing, mockups, simulations, and approval meetings are standard in addition to complex price negotiations, long, elaborate contracts and restrictions on the use of your own website.
We are here to change all that.
Weblii has a stress-free web design process that allows you to have as much or as little input as you want. There's no complex contracts, required meetings, incomprehensible wireframing, lengthy approvals, or technical jargon to deal with.
We use the world's most powerful site building tools like Wix, combined with our 20+ years of experience, to build beautiful, effective business websites in a fraction of the time and cost.
Weblii is a small, local, family-owned business that's here to serve other businesses in our community. We provide outstanding customer service and guarantee your satisfaction with our services.
Why do you use website building tools, instead of developing the site from scratch?
Great question. In fact, what most people aren't aware of, is that web design firms often don't create sites from scratch. They use and re-use code and web parts from other designs and websites, then just customize them to your look and feel.
We also know that as a small business owner, it can be very stressful and time-consuming to build a website youself, even though you can DIY by using the same site building tools, most folks simply don't have the knowldge and expertice of designing effective websites for businesses.
Weblii is unique in that we offer the simplicity of a DIY site builder with the expertice of a seasoned web design company.
We take the complexities of DIY like formatting and spacing considerations, useage of colors and imagery and their affect on the reader, site flow, and content location, internal site links vs external site link, SEO, domain and DNS setup, and much more off of your plate to let you concentrate on what matters most - building and growing your business.
What's more, once your site is complete, we turn over full control of the website to you, or if you prefer, we can continue to maintain your website, for an even more stress-free experience.
What site builders do you use?
We build websites on several platforms. In most cases, we recommend using Wix.
In our experience we've found that Wix is the best platform for most small businesses. It offers great ease of use - making it a fantastic choice for busy business owners who choose to maintain the site themselves after we're done building it. It also has tremendous flexibility in terms of types of functionality that it supports, and a cost effective hosting plan that won't dent your wallet.
We also can create your site using Squarespace, Weebly, Shopify, and Wordpress. It's up to you, but it is important to understand the differences with each platform.
Can you maintain the website after it's built?
Of course! We offer monthly maintenance plans starting at $50/mo. There's a three month minimum, then month to month after that.
Maintenance plans include 3 minor revisions per month, uploading the sitemap to google search console (if applicable) after all changes, ensuring your site is running it's best and verifying that no images or links are broken.
Can I update the website myself once it's done?
Absolutely! We encourage owners to get involved in maintaining the website once it's complete. There's no reason you have to pay some one to update a few lines of text or to change an image.
After the site is completed, how much will I have to pay for hosting?
Different platforms have different hosting fees depending on the type of site you're hosting.
Most of our customers pay less than $20 per month or $240 per year for their hosting plans in addition to about $15-20 per year for the domain name.
How much input will I have in the creation of the website?
As much as you want!
We encourage owners to be involved and contribute to the overall design of the site by helping us understand their vision and their goals for the company. We want the site to be an extension of the business and thereby it's owner.
Who writes the content / copy for the website?
Typically, the owner or an employee of the business writes the content for the site.
You know your business better than anyone, however, in special cases, we can assist with creating the content and copy for the website for an additional charge.
