Frequently Asked Questions
Website a new sales channel to your business which works 24 hours a day 7 days week irrespective of whether you are on vacation or busy with something. When you open an office or showroom, did you do all of the interior decoration by yourself or some one with no-brand? I am sure you spend lot of resources and got it done in the right way by highly qualified professionals. You did that because, that office/ showroom is the one that gets customers or sends them away. No matter how great products or services that you have, that office or showroom is very important. Isn't it?
Note that, you have some people working in that office or showroom to interact with customers where as on the website, it has to do on its own without a live person in the website, since it is virtual showroom or sales office. Just imagine how many efforts your sales person puts to convince the customer about your products and services, which the website has to do by itself without any human presence which indicates how much responsibility a website has and how important it is for your business.
Do you really want such a highly important task for your business, which is the heart of your complete internet sales channel for the whole world which should work 24 hours a day 365 days a year, get it done by a fresh college graduate or freelancer? Even though I am highly a qualified professional with noted experience in these services, I did not do dotWeavers.com myself, rather our office did it by taking it as if it is a customer project and by going through all the international standards and our company strict quality control process, because it is important to our business.
Website is the image you present to the Internet world. Either it brings more customers or even turns them away forever based on what and how you present it to the customer. If you think you have a great brand offline and can afford to have any kind of website, you are wrong. Having a great brand offline and lousy website will turn away the smart customers who use latest technology. They not only skip buying via your website since they know that you are not competitive in using latest technology effectively, they may also turn away from buying offline thinking you are still using ages old technology in all aspects of your company operations or they think you are technophobia.
When you hire Nutrient Solutions, you can peacefully focus on your core business while leaving your online business strategy to the experts.
Yes, you can do it yourself or get it done in-house if you feel you are able to accomplish the things listed here on getting successful on the Internet. However, we strongly suggest enlisting the talents of a professional.
Your Website is your "24x7 salesperson to the whole world." It is the only persuasive element of your website. Website content—if written properly—is what reaches your customers on a personal level and shows them how you are the solution to their problems. Words are our sole source of communication. They trigger our emotions and are the defining factor in most of our decisions (especially our buying decisions). A professional copywriter understands how to blend emotion, the communication style of your target customer, and the details and facts about your business into a harmonic flow that is well received by your clients and triggers a desire to buy.
In addition, if good search engine positioning is of importance to you, you need to realize that the selection of effective keywords and delicate balance of keyword saturation in your copy is absolutely vital to success.
For Web design, we use Macromedia Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver generates very clean HTML code that meets W3C validation standards compared to other products. In addition, we also use several in-house developed software to fine tune the code and to make sure it meets our company web design standards..
For Web graphics, we use Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia Fireworks and Macromedia Flash, because they provide clear, compressed graphics that load fast so as not to keep your visitors waiting. Unlike the competition and freelance web designers, we use all licensed software.
It varies from website to website based on the requirement. In the initial consultation, we will provide you the timeline estimates for your project.
If you have the content for your site written before the design process begins, it will help in completing the project quickly. Content should be in electronic format. Not having your copy completed before the design process can significantly delay the completion of your website.
Once you place the web design order, customer service representative will be in touch you. Project Manager for your project also will also work with you closely. Account executive will be in contact with you all the time.
No, it is not required to host with us. Typically we recommend that our clients host with us because we have standardized our servers to handle all of the services that may be needed for the project deployment. Majority of our clients do host with us and very few choose to keep their existing hosting companies. We will work with you on any scenario.
If you really want to have, it can be done, but we strongly discourage these pages. They're both outdated and redundant. People simply click on the 'skip intro' button or get frustrated that there's an extra step before they can see your website. It's far better to have a Flash header or have a Flash intro incorporated in the home page.
One more reason not to have them is because of search engines. Content of home page is very important. Search engines calculate how deep each page is from the home page, the deeper the pages are the lower the rank is. By having Splash or Entry page, basically you are pushing every single page on the website one level deep for absolutely no valid business reason.
