Q: I am totally new to this “website thing”. How does the whole process work?
A: Never fear, that’s why we are here. You can learn about our time-proven process in our process section.
Q: How long has AuthorFellas.com been building websites?
A: AuthorFellas.com was recently founded in 20019 but our designers have been building websites since the internet was young.
Q: How much does a website cost?
A: The cost of our standard template websites is $49/month which includes the template, hosting and customizing the options on the template. The cost of a fully custom website will depend on what you specifically need in your website.
Q: How does the payment process work for a fully custom design?
A: The project starts with a 50% deposit. After design sign off and before we move into programming, we collect 25%. Once we have completed and fulfilled our scope, the final 25% is collected and your website is then scheduled for launch.
Q: What kind of businesses do you work with?
A: AuthorFellas.com currently works with authors, agents and publishers to create websites that promote books.
Q: How long does it take to build a website?
A: Our standard template websites can be completed in about 7 days if we customize if for you. If you choose to do the work yourself you can probably do it in less than a day. A fully customized site may take a little longer.
Q: Who will I work with during the project?
A: This is a great question to ask and you should ask it of any web design and development firm you are considering. Many firms will farm out work to freelancers or interns. Some firms give little or no access to client’s who want to speak directly with their designers or developers. Our clients work directly with our tight-knit crew of 5. Who that will depend on your project needs and what stage of the process you are in during the project.
Q: What platform do you build your websites on?
A: We build all of our websites on the very popular WordPress platform.
Q: Do you work with other platforms like MODX, Joomla, Drupal?
A: No. We are exclusively a WordPress firm. In choosing to build with one platform over the past 10 years, we have become experts in WordPress and can create extremely custom solutions for our clients.
Q: Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?
A: No. We only support websites that we have fully built or host on our servers. We have this policy so that we can 100% stand behind everything that we craft. There are issues of liability of multiple programmers touching the same code over time.
Q: Can you help me write content for my website?
A: Yes. We include copywriting and editing in all of our proposals. We also build your sitemap and help structure the foundation of your website in the planning stages.
Q: Can you help me source photos for my website?
A: Yes. We will help you source stock photos from sites such as www.crestock.com and www.istock.com. We also have photographers and videographers available to produce custom photography and videos for your website.
Q: Do I own my website?
A: YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.
