Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take for my website to be finished?
We'll email you a link to your new website in five business days. By close of business on the fifth business day, you should have an email that includes a link and other onboarding information to your brand new, "done-for-you" website! Your site will be "live" on the internet at that point. When you attend your Zoom meeting, we'll walk you through connecting it to a ".com" (URL) of your choice.
Will I have easy, complete control over my website once you've designed it?
ABSOLUTELY! Part of how we can make these smaller sites so economical is by giving you access to our designers with YOU actually managing the site yourself. Once we build your site, we'll send you an email with the link to the new site and information about changing it and making it your own if you like. We will not retain any ownership of your site. It belongs to you!
Will my site have a web address (URL)?
YES! When you first receive the link to your new world wide web home, it will display a really long Wix.com address. If you elect to upgrade your site to their hosting, you can choose to connect any web address that belongs to you or purchase the address of your choice. During your Zoom training, we'll show you how to accomplish this and point you in the direction of further assistance should you need it.
Can I change photos and information on my site?
You will absolutely be able to add your own photos and change or add any information you'd like to your new site. Once your site is designed, we'll send you a link to view your new site and email invitation to transfer your new site to your ownership. You'll then have access to an incredible variety of video and written instructions to grow your website in whatever way you need to! You'll also have access to (literally) world-class customer service through the Wix platform, right here in the United States, should you need further assistance.
What customer service is available after my website is completed?
You'll have access to an incredible variety of online video and written instructions to grow your website in whatever way you need to! You'll also have access to (literally) world-class customer service through the Wix platform, right here in the United States, should you need further assistance. If you're stuck, we're a phone call away!
How will I know when my website is finished?
Expect an email in up to five business days from the day your payment is processed. This email will give you access to your new site and instruct you in the next steps for gaining full access and control of your site.
What happens after I pay for my website?
You'll receive a confirmation email and our designers will immediately get started creating your website! Once it's finished, expect an email in up to five business days from the day you sign up. This email will give you access to your new site and instruct you in the next steps for gaining full access and control of your site. You'll also receive instructions for attending a Zoom meeting that will educate you on how to maintain your site.
What platform will my site be created on?
We use Wix, an international, content managed (think "do-it-yourself") website building platform. It's completely Google friendly, SO easy to use and gives you as little or as much control as you want over your site. You can create dynamic content in HTML or CSS or you can take it easy and stick with what you're used to when you use Microsoft Word or Gmail. It's the most versatile, reliable platform available in the market today with an amazing reputation of innovation and creativity.
Do I have to purchase my URL (web address) through your company?
If you purchase your URL (your web address) through Wix, it's extremely easy to connect to your site. But even if you snag a site address from GoDaddy or anywhere else, you can connect it to your website. You'll have access to videos and written instructions to walk you through the process. If you get really stuck, you can always reach out to Wix's amazing American-based customer service via chat or phone.
How much will my site cost after it's designed?
The great news is that, once we design your site, we don't charge you for a thing - EVER! You will need to pay Wix for your hosting, which usually ranges from $5 to $25 per month, depending on your choice of services. You can pay a small amount monthly or save a little mullah by paying yearly. The choice is yours. You will not pay US anything else for your site!
