Frequently Asked Questions

Will the site you build for me fit on phones, tablets and laptops?

The answer is yes.  Wade's Web Design websites are responsive.  We will build your site so that all visitors to it will have an optimal viewing experience.  Your site will easily resize to fit any device - from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors.  We will carefully craft versions of your site for viewing and easy navigation on differently sized laptop and notebook computers. Your web visitors will love the site we build for you.

We want a site that is easy to change and update ourselves. Are Wade's Web Design sites easy to update?

Every site we build is unique and designed specifically to a customer's exact specifications.  Each site has its own CMS (content management system) which is password-protected.  It is extremely easy to use and allows customers to add pages, pictures and graphics, change text, add blog entries and articles, manage store inventory, customer orders, a mailing list and newsletters - and many other things.

Do the costs generally go up in the design process?

No.  Once a site is given a quote that is all you will pay.  Our terms are $200 at the time the site is confirmed to start and the balance when it is completed. Once the site is done there is be a period of 30 days when corrections and adjustments within the original scope of work are done to the site at no charge.

How long does it take to build a site?

Generally it takes 2-3a few attempts to get the design that matches your objectives and projects the right brand image you want.  Usually it can take anywhere from 1 to weeks from the start of the design process to site completion.

Where will our site be built?

We use a server that we find to be cheap and reliable though if you already have hosting we can use that server too.  The only requirement is the selected server must have PHP 5+ and MySQL installed.  The inexpensive Linux-based hosting plans provided by most large hosting providers all have PHP and MySQL installed by default. We can help you make the right choices in setting up your hosting plan. We can also walk you through the hosting setup process.

What browsers will our site work in?

We try to build our sites to be compatible with all popular browsers and operating systems. We check our sites on both PCs and Macs, and all the major browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. We try to make our sites as compatible with various browsers as possible. We will help troubleshoot any issues that might arise due to a particular configuration.

We are familiar with the latest advances in web technologies and how they may appear on different platforms.

What if I don't completely know what I need in my website yet?

We realize that the requirements for sites evolve as we discuss the details and the design process is underway. During the development phase the website will change and evolve; we will work with you as an active partner to suggest improvements and enhancements to the site to make it work better.

Does it matter if we are not in the same location? How important is face to face contact in the development of a website?

Many of Wade's Web Design clients are outside of Mandurah.  It doesn't matter where you are, most website development meetings are held over the phone. We create unique designs for every client and build the draft site in a private location on the web where you can view the progress and make any changes or corrections you want. your social media marketing partner
