Phantom Farms

We’re planning a road trip to this place. My mouth starting watering the second I looked at their bakery and candy selection. This website will be a place for visitors to not only review what the farm has to offer, but also a listing of their lastest events.

Your Web Related Questions Answered!

Never again do you have to feel foolish when a group of your web-geek friends are chatting about the latest technology, or throw some words you have never heard around.

We’ve put together a simple list of questions that we’re often asked, in an effort to empower our customers. Being knowledgeable can give you the power to breeze through the topic of your project, and not get stuck on a phrase or get lost in the conversation.

It is never our intention to make anyone feel dumb and if you have more questions or want to know, in easy terms, what something means…ASK AWAY!

Web Design – Per Page Charge!??? Seriously?

After checking out a new web design firm’s website, I found something that appalls me…they CHARGE BY THE PAGE!! Plus, they actually put “publish site to web” in their list of features.

If you’ve commissioned a website design, isn’t it assumed that the developer is going to at least publish the site to the web? Why is it that business after business is being pitched features that either are no-brainers, or include words that you need a PhD. to understand? If you feel like you’re being talked into a used car that “runs great, don’t worry about those 200K miles on her”, get a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th opinion.

BEWARE!!! BEWARE!! BEWARE! of developers saying they will give you “X” but then later tack on a charge for a contact form, stock photography, to resize images, for something as fundamental as including drop-down menus in your navigation. Options, such as these, should be included in a website quote. The initial few hundred dollar investment so boldly advertised, could be inflated into a number that boggles the mind if all the small print isn’t read.

Don’t just agree to a $500 site without talking to the developer about things like:

  • What do you want the site to do?
  • What are your expectations?
  • Who are you selling the site to?
  • Are there any special features you want in the site?
  • How the developer is going to accomplish these things?
  • Is the developer going to be available after the site is launched?
  • How are people going to be able to contact you?
  • What are ALL of the potential costs?

Services like Google Analytics and a complimentary amount of hours of maintenance shouldn’t cost ANYTHING! Certain options like a content management system, custom functionality, e-commerce, and items like these should be extra and outlined in your proposal. But only AFTER a lengthy conversation with the developer. The developer is the expert in web development, should make educated recommendations, and deliver a fair, realistic proposal. Don’t fall for listed items just to bloat an “included features” list.

Understanding that a business is approaching a service professional for their expertise and looking for professional, ethical guidance is something every business should embrace, not just web design.

Start a conversation, not a sales pitch with us for reasonable, effective web development services, info@graphxevolution.com.

The above article is the opinion of the “Diva”…someone who believes only ethical, professional, and honest talk is what will propel a business forward and not be a “flash-in-the-pan” company.

Unorthodox Web Design

Unorthodox website design…what!? How many studios have you called to only get their sales pitch of how “we have these custom website packages to meet our client’s needs”? Seriously, “custom website package” should mean only what you need or want, not what the design studio wants to sell you to make a handsome profit on features you’ll never use.

Your web developer should listen to you and what you need. Only recommend what they think would work for your company and let you decide. Ask your developer to give you options or to break the project into phases. This way you can decide for yourself what’s the best road to take.

graphXevolution will have a conversation with you, not sell you, and after the conversation we’ll put together options. That doesn’t mean we’ll say you can get by with a 5-page static site alone, it means we’ll give you advanced options, a lower-end option and everything in between. If you tell us “hey that sounds awesome but we can’t do it all now,” we’ll work with you.

Yes, we’re in business to make money, feed our children and have a warm place to program in, but we’re not in business to rip off our customers.

Our form of unorthodox website design consists of actually caring about your project, being as passionate about it as you and delivering a product we’d be proud to put our name on.
