General Questions

I saw this cool image on another website… can we use it on mine?2019-08-14T09:56:16-06:00

Even though we know that imitation is the highest form of flattery, the law doesn’t always agree. We can’t usually pull images straight from a competitor’s website (unless you’ve gotten permission!), but we are glad to help you track down something similar through the proper channels.

Will my site work on a mobile device?2019-08-14T09:56:06-06:00

Yes! All of our sites are responsive (they adjust based on the size of the device) and will look lovely on most current phones.

Can you design my logo?2019-08-14T09:56:23-06:00

If you don’t currently have a logo (or if you have one your second cousin designed for you using clipart in 1996), we highly recommend going through a logo and branding process. Not only does it give you a much more professional look, it’s also a great boost of energy for your business! We love designing websites, but for specialized projects like this we’ll introduce you to a designer we partner with regularly and love working with. Once you’ve landed on a logo and brand that fits, they’ll hand the design files to us and we’ll splash it all over a shiny new website.

Do you all write text for websites?2019-08-14T09:57:15-06:00

While we always end up being a tiny bit involved in editing and tweaking copy to ensure it fits the website and appeases the Google gods, writing is not our gig. But we know people. We find that clients either love working with our favorite professional copywriters (they’re total word ninjas), or love writing their own copy (this is a great option if you’re a strong writer and want to keep costs a bit lower).

Custom Website Projects

Do I need a logo?2019-08-14T11:44:14-06:00

Yes, you’ll need a logo and a few other things before we can build your site: brand elements (fonts, colors, patterns, etc.), photos for the website and all of your website text. If you don’t have these we are happy to recommend designers, photographers, and writers.

How long will it take to build my website?2019-08-14T12:00:16-06:00

Since each website is a unique creature, we’ll have to gather the project details before we can answer that… but timelines for a basic site generally start at 4-5 weeks.

Why diy + dl when I can just diy?2019-08-14T10:28:53-06:00

We thought you’d ask that 🙂 In short, you’ll save time, cover all your bases and get a professionally-made look. For the full response – read here.

Why Squarespace?2019-08-14T10:53:48-06:00

We build these sites on Squarespace because they’re (1) very user-friendly and easy to update, and (2) inexpensive – only $26/month or $216/year. Click here for more information on Squarespace pricing.

How long will it take for me to build my website?2019-08-14T10:07:53-06:00

The time depends mostly on what you already have prepared, such as branding, images, etc. It will likely take about 6-8 hours to build the site once you have your elements in place.

What do I need before I begin?2019-08-14T10:35:28-06:00

Technically, you don’t need anything. But, the process will be a lot more smooth if you have a logo and as many brand elements as possible. Don’t fret if you don’t have these, though – our workbook includes steps to come up with brand fonts and colors.

Is the workbook actually a book?2019-08-14T11:04:42-06:00
