Got Questions?

Wondering what's right for you about website design, website development, and SEO?

About Website Design Project?

Q: How long does it take before I can expect results?

This may be our most common question, and it’s a good one. The type of results and the time to see results are going to vary based on (1) the services you are using and (2) the aggressiveness of your marketing efforts. More comprehensive marketing strategies tend to yield better, quicker results and will always be recommended by CH Web Media. However, if you have a very specific goal, then certain services may provide results faster. An example would be Pay Per Click as it can be activated and delivering traffic to your website within hours of setup. Search Engine Optimization and Social Media services can and do take weeks, sometimes months, before any direct results are noticed.

Q: Why do I need to market my business online?

With over 80% of all transactions starting from an online search, it is almost impossible to ignore the importance of a strong web presence these days. No matter what your business is selling you can almost be certain that your prospective customers will be going online to learn about what you sell and the best companies to choose from to get started. If your business cannot be found, then your competitors that can will be taking a lion’s share of these opportunities.

Q: Why do I need to work with an agency like CH Web Media?

Although you are never limited to working with an agency, we do highly encourage and recommend it. If you do not live and breathe online marketing and web development like we do, then there is no way that you can specialize in it and provide yourself with efficient and effective results. You would not try and build a house if you have never done it before would you? Online marketing and website development is too important to try to do piecemeal. On top of that, it can get very expensive and time consuming if you don’t know what you’re doing. Focus on what you do best, running your business, and let someone like us help you grow.

Q: Will I own my website?

Yes. All CH Web Media websites are owned entirely by the customers we designed and built them for. Although we have yet to have a client move their website to someone else, you most certainly have the option to do so at any time.

Q: What access do I get to my website?

All of our website clients get full access to their website. This includes control panel access, Joomla administrative access, FTP access and database access. We do require customers to sign a waiver of liability though if and when they request this information as we cannot be responsible for anything that goes down or breaks as a result of someone else’s error.

Q: How will you be building my website? Using an existing theme? A custom theme?

Depending on what your budget is we will determine which option is best suited for your business. All of our custom sites are built on custom themes developed specifically for your business. All of our template websites are built on pre-built themes we’ve developed for use with template websites. If you have a particular theme that you’ve purchased, then we’re happy to work with that as well.

Q: How will you make it easy for me to manage the content on my website?

Before any website project enters the build stage we completely plan out how the approved designs will be coded into a working website. This process helps us to make as many elements of the website easy for any user to edit.

Q: What SEO features/fundamentals will be included with my website?

Since we build the majority of our websites on Joomla, there is not too much we need to do to make a website SEO friendly out of the gate. That said, there is some additional optimization work we include like proper setup of a recommended SEO plugin and assistance with setting up and verifying accounts with Google and Bing webmaster tools.

Q: What will you be doing to keep my Joomla site secure?

If you select to take advantage of our website service plan, then we will not only host your website, but also perform regular checks and updates to keep it secure from any malicious behavior. And, in the rare instance, your website does get compromised then our specialists will work to resolve the issues until they have been completely eradicated. If you choose to opt-out of our website service plan, then any and all security and maintenance will be your responsibility.

About SEO Services?

Q: What is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is a service that involves the process of optimizing a website so that it meets all the criteria of the search engines. Doing so properly, in turn, gets your website listed higher on the search engine's results page, after a user conducts a search for a keyword or keyword phrase that your website uses to get found. SEO companies extensively research search engines' criteria. Then they optimize your web pages to meet that engine's requirements.

Q: Why do I need SEO services?

SEO services help your site rank better in the search engines organically. Better rankings in relevant terms will drive more traffic to your site, creating the ability for better exposure and revenue streams.

Q: What is the best way to determine my online marketing budget?

Determine your potential return on investment. Online marketing tactics help bring more traffic and business to your site, raising your revenue. There is always a need for online marketing; and we are always be sure to present you with quantifiable results.

Q: How long does it normally take to see SEO Results?

When a browser conducts a search, they will be confronted by both organic results and paid results (those which are highlighted and usually placed on the very top or right-hand side of the page). While Paid Advertising is a great way to get you in front of people quickly, it is the quest of every business to achieve first-page, organic-SEO results because you no longer need to pay every time someone clicks on your site.

Q: What is a Landing Page?

A landing page puts your customers close to the final sale. A good landing page offers intriguing copy an opportunity for your visitors to make a purchase or desired conversion depending on the desired end result. Landing pages are typically associated with Paid Campaigns like Google Adwords, because they can be customized to fit with the ad copy to improve quality score.

Q: What's the difference between organic SEO and Paid results?

Google Webmaster Tools is a no-charge web service by Google for webmasters. It allows webmasters to check indexing status and optimize their websites. It has tools that let the webmasters submit and check sitemaps, generate and check robots.txt files, list internal and external pages linking to the site, view statistics related to how Google crawls the site, disavow links, and more. Google WMT’s is a must-have for any site looking to optimize.

Q: Why do I need a copywriter for my web site?

“Content is king” when it comes to the Web. It almost sounds cliché now but it still hold true. Remember that the Web’s purpose is to provide information to users; having fresh, unique, useful copy implemented regularly on your site is one of the best ways to achieve good rankings. Not only does it intrigue visitors to visit your site and provide new content for the SE’s to crawl but sites with great content are more likely to be linked to by outside sites, improving its overall strength online.

Q: How can Social Media be used for SEO?

Social media presents opportunities to acquire backlinks and social mentions to your site’s pages, articles, press releases, etc. Social media campaigns are a popular and ever-growing aspect of the Web and are a great compliment to an SEO or SEM campaign. Engaging in social media presents a unique opportunity to build up a community around your particular product or services allowing you to stay connected and provide messaging to your most loyal purchasers.

Q: What is Page Rank and is it important?

No one is completely certain as to the ‘exact’ science of how page rank is formulated, but it is understood that a number of elements such as age, number of backlinks, and amount of content are used to formulate it.

Years ago, Page Rank was a way for Google to determine a web pages search rankings but now it is just one of 200 ranking factors Google uses to determine a page’s popularity. While still relevant, it is no longer the driving force for determining rank.
