Frequently Asked Questions
What platform do you use for the website?
What are the prices like for hosting and domain?
How do I know if the domain I want is available?
What if I don't have a logo or branding?
Branding is mandatory before we start designing your website. It's very difficult to create a site that sells if you don't have your brand identity established first, so you have two options:
Can I get an email address that matches my website domain name?
Yes! After we launch your new site, you can purchase an email address to match your website domain right from your Wix dashboard. It's very easy to do and you will be guided through the set-up process on Wix.
How does the personalized Wix tutorial work? And can it be saved/recorded?
Absolutely! You will always have access to watch the video again later and you can always reach out with extra questions that you might have - I'm happy to record more training videos if needed.
We can do the tutorial together live on Zoom or I can record a training for you and upload the video to our shared Google Drive.
I usually cover things like: dashboard overview, how to edit your website settings, sending branded invoices through your site, how to make website content changes, how to create blog posts, etc.
Any other website costs I should be aware of?
Just the price of my services, the price of your yearly Wix platform (most of our clients use the combo plan (Wix Pricing Info), the price of your domain hosting (around $20 USD per year), and the price of your professional email (if you choose to do that).
Given your timelines, what specific things should I have in place before we begin?
We are going to help you with all of the website copy, so the only thing you might want to have ready is your professional photos. I would suggest having at least 4-6 photos of yourself. They don't all need to be professional, as long as they are clean and bright - nothing blurry or fuzzy :)
Do you have some stock images I can pick from for extra photos on the site, or do I need to purchase these separately?
You shouldn't need to purchase any photos unless you want to. If we need to use a few stock images on your site we usually get them from these two websites and they are free to use:
Once the branding is complete, how will I know what files to use?
We will provide you with a file reference sheet and this explains what all of the different branding files are for and where to use them. You can always contact us if you have more questions :)
What does SEO stand for?
The acronym stands for Search Engine Optimization.
What exactly is SEO?
SEO is a part of digital marketing that focuses on optimizing multiple factors on your website to rank organically on search engines such as Google. Search Engine Optimization is considered a long-term digital marketing strategy and works to increase good quality website traffic over time.
