In the spirit of Halloween, this month I want to tackle some of the spookiest subjects that clients encounter when looking to build a new website. Starting a new website project can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are some tips for dealing with some of the more complicated issues that come with building a new website.
The Price to Build a Website
The scariest part of starting a new website project for many clients is price.
With so many different options for web design and so many different quotes, how can you know what you should really be paying for a website?
While the exact price point depends on what kind of website you’re looking for, how much communication you want to have with your design company, and how much support you’ll require once the site is live, you get what you pay for with website design.
Don’t look only for the cheapest price; make sure to evaluate your specific needs and find a solution or company which will best suit those needs, and one with whom you can develop a good working relationship. A good web design agency is looking to help you and your business grow online!

Web Design: The Ghosts of Internet Past
While most new websites coming out are using a minimalist, modern design sensibility, every now and then we still run into a site which clearly hasn’t seen any design changes since the early 2000s.
Clients who haven’t updated their websites in a long time may be nervous to start a new project, since it can be a large undertaking. However, rest assured that users prefer sites with attractive designs, which load quickly, and which work properly on their mobile devices. Statistics show that users will leave a page if it loads too slowly, doesn’t work as expected, or looks out-of-date (link to stats).
ADA Website Compliance
With all the ADA compliance suits showing up in our newsfeeds lately, it can feel like a scary time to own a website. How do you know if your website needs to be compliant? How can you test this? How can you guarantee that you’ve made every effort to make your website accessible to everyone who wishes to use it?
Regardless of what kind of website you have, you should make every effort to ensure that your site is accessible; accessibility benefits everyone! Not only does it help people using assistive technology to get all of the information your site has to offer, but it also ensures that all of your users will be able to have a smooth experience on your website. It’s also great for SEO (link to post)!
