Helping Businesses Get Off the Ground
The Nowspeed Essentials Website is an affordable solution for companies looking to get a web presence that helps support their marketing or lead generation, without breaking the bank. You get our expertise to support your goals, for a price that makes sense.
No Forcing Square Pegs Into Round Holes
Our starter websites aren't like most. We don't ask you to choose a template or then fill in the blanks with your content and photos. We work with you to understand your goals and design a custom look to best tell your story and meet those goals. For example, if you're looking to show off a portfolio, your website shouldn't look like a lead generation website. So, we craft the experience to best fit your needs.
Our Web Clients Love Us
Over the years, we've formed long-term relationships with partners all over the region. Our commitment to strong communication, customer advocacy, and quality work has helped us gain the reputation we've got. We invite you to check out our web design or marketing work and contact any of our clients to ask what it's like working with us!
You Still Get the Benefit of Working with Our Expert Web Development Team
While our traditional web projects get a more robust approach to the discovery, design and development, our starter websites still benefit from our expertise. Our marketing backgrounds are baked into the DNA of everything we do, so you can be sure your website will be done thoughtfully and thoroughly. All starter websites are still fast, work on all devices, setup with SEO best practices in mind, and built to covert the goals you set out to meet.
A Plan for Growth Customized to Your Website Needs
No one website plan looks the same. If you're looking to focus on SEO, you may have a content-heavy approach. If your main source of traffic is Google Ads, you're going to focus on landing pages and conversions. And if your website is your 'virtual business card', you're going to be spending time adding new projects and trust signals. So we craft the 1 year plan to best suit your needs. Below is an example of the first six months of a plan for a general business website.
|End of Month 1||Home Page and Back End Complete|
|Month 2||Service Page|
|Month 3||PPC Landing Page|
|Month 4||Blog Templates and Section|
|Month 5||Review and Adjust for Conversions|
|Month 6||New Lead Magnet Creation|
A Website Price That Makes Sense
Working with us, there won't be any surprises in budget and timing. The price we sign up for is the price you pay - nothing more. Our Nowspeed Starter Package costs $400 a month, and requires a 1 year contract. Once the year is up, the website is all yours to manage and own yourself!
Our Websites Compliment Your Marketing Efforts
Being a full-service digital marketing agency, we make sure that your website is built to integrate and support your marketing campaigns. We build in HubSpot, Google Analytics, and conversion tracking for all projects. We also provide a real-time reporting dashboard where you can see all data for the website and other marketing channels. If you're investing in a website with us, we want to make sure it's fully able to do more than just sit there - but actually do something to grow and support your business!
We're always excited to dig into the details of your company and what strategy can help you meet your goals. So let's talk and lay out a plan for success!
Details and Commonly Asked Questions
We want to make sure you're as informed as possible so you can make a great decision on what web design company is best for you. Below is our FAQ about our process, details and more.
We develop all our websites on the WordPress CMS. Being the post popular web platform out there, it allows us the flexibility and support to ensure that your site is future-proof and stable long-term.
We don't use pre-made themes for our websites. Instead, we custom design your site to best meet your needs and tell your story. We then use a modular page builder to allow you to edit the site content, sections, photos and more as you need changes in the future. No coding skills necessary!
We're all about understanding what design styles you like and what supports the story you're trying to tell the best. Our clients typically trust us to translate their eye into a compelling design that employs our best practices, but we always allow you to review and offer feedback. With the Nowspeed Starter Package, you are allowed one design review after we present the home page to you.
No. All work from design to development is done by the team you meet with in our office. We believe that a lot is missed when you're working with a remote team and it's not worth the savings to sacrifice quality and communication.
With the Nowspeed Starter Package, we ask that you provide all content to us about your business and services. We'll adjust the content to fit a good narrative and meet SEO best practices, but you'll need to be in the driver's seat.
Currently we do not offer photography. However, we can recommend photographers to you, or if you already have high-resolution images to use, we can incorporate those into the designs. Just note that phone images or older digital images don't usually do the job on modern screens and devices.
For the first year of the plan, you are not given access to the back end of your website. But, every month, we offer 1 hour's worth of edits to you and are happy to handle them. After the end of the first year, you are welcome to migrate your website to your own hosting platform and manage and edit it yourself from then on out.
Yes. For the first year, we offer 1 hour per month of website changes and edits. You can purchase additional edits at our hourly rate of $125.
Additionally, we cover the cost of updating plugins, managing bugs and errors, and ensuring the website is operating properly.
For the first year, yes. After that time, you are able to have your website hosted with another provider and we will help you transition it over.
We do guarantee that your website will be delivered to you bug-free and fully as expected. And will correct any errors that result from our initial coding right after launch.
While our websites last, on average, 4-5 years before major updates are needed to keep up with changing technologies, we can't offer a long-term guarantee for a few reasons:
- If we're not hosting or managing your website, we can't ensure it's up-to-date and secure. There are too many changes in code and hack vulnerabilities for us to be responsible if your website breaks while not under our watch.
- If you or somebody else is managing your website, it's very easy to accidentally change code or functionality while not knowing the full scope of how things are built. If you install a Ford Fiesta transmission into your BMW, it won't exactly work.
If you elect to have us host and manage your website, we do guarantee that your site will be up 99.9% of the time and kept fully up to date and secure. In that case, we cover any issues or errors that popup.
And, we guarantee that any time you need, help, you can reach out and we're here to help.
Not on our end. Once you have a contract, that's the price you pay. The only exception would be in the very rare case of a major change in scope after the site has been reviewed, developed, and approved (say you have a major re-brand after we've already developed the site). This has happened once or twice in the 10 years we've been in business and both times the client was fully informed and aware of the cost of the change they requested.
On average, a website will have a shelf life of 4-5 years before it needs a major upgrade to keep up with changing technologies. Think how websites had to change dramatically when smart phones became commonplace; we can't always predict what's coming.
We build all websites with SEO best practices standard. By default, we include proper header tags, meta descriptions, sitemaps, speed optimizations and more. Almost every site we launch outperforms its predecessor out of the box.
If you want ongoing optimization and support to turbocharge your SEO, talk to use about our digital marketing services!
Yes. We design and develop all websites responsively to fit and work well on all devices. We believe the customer experience should be the same regardless of how they get to and view your site.
