YOUR WEBSITE SHOULD "BE LIKE WATER"

In 2020, making sure your website is fully responsive, looks and functions flawlessly across all devices is not only more important than ever before, but an absolute must!

Year after year, more and more people are increasingly browsing and shopping solely on their mobile devices. Your website must adjust to these changes or be left behind in the past.

We believe a good website development team should deliver the best possible user experience across all devices. Websites should be fast, have clear prompts, relevant content and should effortlessly adjust with every gesture across all screens. To paraphrase Bruce Lee, the inspiration behind our company’s name and our web design philosophy. Your website should "be like water".

WEBSITE DESIGN FAQ

How much do web design services cost?

Web design is a tricky industry when it comes to prices and costs because it can range from very cheap to very expensive. As a client, we feel your pain trying to navigate costs and figure out how to budget for it! Our prices are listed above and are based on which package you're interested in. We're quite transparent and honest about our pricing, unlike many web design agencies who prefer to keep it hidden and basically make up a price when you call them, based on how much they think your business can afford to pay :). Based on our research, costs for a simple static website can range from $500 to $20,000 depending on which company you speak with. Crazy huh? Why such a humongous difference, you ask? It's because there are several ways to design a website.

 

Here is what you want to know when you're talking to a web design agency in Toronto or anywhere else:

 

Question #1: are they designing the website from scratch or using a pre-existing theme? This is especially true if they are using WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or any other CMS. Designing a website from scratch takes much longer than using a pre-existing theme, but the advantage is that you end up with a 100% unique layout that doesn't exist anywhere else.

 

Question #2: is the agency designing the website in-house or outsourcing the design and development of it? Its way cheaper to hire web designers in New Delhi or Karachi than it is in Toronto.

 

Question #3: is the agency or company you're working with offering professional advice when it comes to what how your website should be designed for maximum conversion rates and ROI or are they simply executing your orders without offering their expertise? That's a big one. We at Little Dragon Media will bluntly tell you if we feel like your idea sucks, and will recommend best practices to ensure that your website brings you business. Our goal is for your website to pay for itself basically. If your website is not bringing you any new business, we won't be happy. Be careful if you choose an agency that simply asks you to provide a mock up and executes it without offering advice or feedback.

How long does it take to design a website?

It can range from a few days to a few weeks. It basically depends on how quickly you can send us all the materials we need such as your photos and textual content for your website such as information about your company, services or products, testimonials and anything else you want to put up on your website. Once we deliver a first version of your website (password protected so that only you can see it online) then it might take another few days or weeks for revisions.

Should I go with WordPress, Shopify, Joomla or any other CMS for my new website?

Or is it better to design a website from scratch? If it's a static website, we recommend using WordPress for your web design project. The reason 80%+ of ALL new websites in the world use WordPress is because it's easy to use/maintain and gives you a lot of flexibility when it comes to how your website looks and behaves. Now, if you want to have an e-commerce website, we also recommend Shopify which is even easier to use and maintain, but gives you less flexibility than WordPress, and unlike WordPress which is free, Shopify has a monthly cost to it. We recommend avoiding other CMS'es such as Joomla or Drupal because they're more complex to use and less popular in general.

There are so many website design agencies in Toronto! How do I choose the right one?

We feel your pain! We totally understand that there are a lot of options in this city and that you might be struggling to choose the right one for your business. The reality is that it depends on many things, such as reputation/reviews, price, previous work examples and how comfortable you felt with them on the phone. You also want to make sure you hire a local Torontonian company and not a company that "pretends" to be here but outsources all their services offshore.

 

You want to be able to speak to the developers directly and not have to deal with communication or time zone issues. Check the agency's reviews and ratings online from its previous clients too. It never hurts to speak to a few different companies before making a decision. We at Little Dragon Media are totally transparent when it comes to our physical location, and you can find our prices, reviews and examples of our work on our website as well. Nothing is hidden! We're confident about our abilities and are one of the rare companies that have a 100% satisfaction or money back policy.

Are there any other costs I should know about?

Yes, there's your domain name and web hosting. We at Little Dragon offer FREE hosting and domain name if you also buy a web maintenance package from us, which includes malware protection, daily backups, uptime monitoring and core security updates to ensure your website is always online and doesn't get hacked. If you choose NOT to buy a web maintenance package, budget an additional $150 per year for domain and hosting which you'll buy from an external company such as GoDaddy, Hostgator or any other reputable company.
