All of the sites we build use the WordPress CMS platform. WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder and at the time of writing, well over 30% of all the websites on the Internet are built with WordPress.
Usually the whole process takes around a month, but that will depend on your own response time to questions that may be asked by our team and providing us with your feedback. We take care of everything from designing and building the site, all the way through to adding the content. Of course you can provide us with your own content, but we find that most people just don’t have the time to do that, so we usually put in the base content and allow you to make your own edits in your own time.
Once full payment has been made you completely own the website. We don’t dictate where you host the website, you can choose whatever host you want. And because the site is built on the WordPress free-source platform, it means you have ownership of all the files and folders that have been used to build your site, so you are free to move it to another host any time you wish.
Yes, absolutely you can! You will need to have a domain (along with a hosting company) before we launch your site, so it can be one that you already own, or you can purchase a new one.
No, we’ll take care of that for you! Unlike other templates or website builders you may find on the web, we don’t provide you with a template and then expect you to suddenly become web designers overnight to set your website up to the way you like it. Obviously once you decide you want to have a website, you really want it going live asap so that it can start attracting new clients. So with our system, you select a base design and tell our team what design changes you want and they’ll take care of it all for you…at no extra charge*
*This does not include adding new custom features.
Yes, of course! You are not limited to the pages that we build for you. Even after we launch you will be able to add new pages yourself, and we will provide video tutorials showing you how to do this. We would suggest you let us know all of the pages that you’re going to want initially so we can build those for you though.
Once you have paid for the website we don’t impose any additional charges, so you are free to manage your website yourself, or you can hire us or any competent web designer to manage the site for you. It’s your choice really. We provide free training on the most basic things you will need to do to manage the site e.g. backing up your website, updating plugins and themes, etc., and we’ll show you how to use the page builder to edit your content and add new pages. You don’t need to have web design skills to manage your site once it’s up, but some people simply want to focus on what they’re best at – real estate photography – and let others with more experience manage their sites. We don’t want to handcuff you, so we leave the choice up to you.
If you mean will your website automatically rank in the search engines once it is launched, the honest answer is…”it depends”! Search engine ranking doesn’t only depend on what you do with your website, but it also depends on what the competition is doing to rank their own sites. If there is a lot of competition, as there is likely to be in really large cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, etc., then your chances of ranking outside of the box diminish quite a bit. If you are in a small town or city where you only have a handful of real estate photographer competitors, then your chances of ranking will increase. We include our own proprietary SEO Boost at no extra charge when we launch your website. This is designed to give your rankings for both your website and your Google My Business listing, if you have one, a nice little kickstart, and you should start to see some rankings showing up in Google within the week. Of course we can’t guarantee it, but at the time of writing, we haven’t built a website that hasn’t achieved this target.
