Website Related - FAQ
Is it difficult to work long distance on a web site project?
Nope - it's very easy and we've done it for clients across the U.S., Canada and Europe for over 3 years. In fact we've never met over 85% of our clients in person . They usually find us through our web site.
What kind of web services do you offer?
Design Strategies provides web design, custom programming, web hosting and site optimization to help your site rank higher on web searches. We also offer photography, illustration, logo design and copy writing services as required.
What does a web site cost?
Web sites vary considerably in price due to many different factors such as: How many pages will your site have? Will you need custom drawings, artwork and photography or stock photos? Will your site need custom programming, an online catalog or database connectivity? All these things can have a major impact on the time and effort that goes into creating your one-of-a-kind site. We never use pre-designed templates or cheap-looking clip art. After discussing your needs on the phone or in person, we will send you a written quote with exact specifications so that you will know exactly what it will cost and what you will get. Everything is up front and in writing so that there is no confusion over what was ordered or what you'll be paying.
How will I know I'll like the design you come up with?
After thoroughly discussing the project with you, a basic design will be created for a single page. It will show the navigation bar, basic graphics and general layout so that you can see exactly what it will look like. We can then discuss the design and fine tune it to your satisfaction. Only after you're pleased with the look and feel of the sample and give us a final approval, is the rest of the site built - with you in control every step of the way.
What is the best way to send text and photos to you that will be used in the site?
We prefer text in Microsoft Word format (Mac® or Windows®). You can also fax us hard copy or mail/FedEx it to us (see address and phones below). Photos can be emailed to us as JPGs or burned to a CD and mailed/FedEx'd.
What if I need you to photograph products?
FedEx them to us and we'll do all the custom photography to make your products look great.
OK, so how do we get started on the project?
Give us a call on (91) 080 4161 6370 and we'll discuss your company, your products and services and what you're looking for. We'll then send you a complete quote and on approval, we'll get started on your site. Alternately you can fill out our online form including info about what you need and we'll call you.
What about payment?
We require a 50% deposit at the beginning of the project with the balance due at job completion. We accept Visa, MasterCard and AmEx and checks made out in U.S. funds.
