Do I need to know a lot of technical info before contacting Bennumedia?

Not at all. We don’t expect everyone to know exactly what they want or need before contacting us. We’ll explain the different types of web design services we offer and help you decide what will work best for your individual needs and goals. Whether you know precisely what you’d like, or want to weigh the options, we’re here to help.

How long does it take to complete a website?

On average, our websites can take 2 – 4 weeks to complete. However, timeframe’s really depend on the size and complexity of the project.  We work with you, and we need feedback and content from you as we progress. So, you are a big part, if not the biggest part, of the timeframe equation. We make every effort to complete our web projects in the most timely manner, but we don’t cut corners. We spend a bit more time than most on the design layout and aesthetic look of your website. We pride ourselves in creating unique websites that are memorable to their viewers. We also ensure properly written code so that your website displays flawlessly on all platforms and browsers. We believe that taking the time to design and develop quality websites is far more important than knocking out as many sites as humanly possible… We’re all about quality, not quantity.

What sort of SEO (search engine optimization) do you offer?

We optimize every website for search engine recognition using all organic methods (or non-paid methods). We utilize all methods of search engine optimization, including effective meta data creation, keyword correlation, alternative image text, descriptive file names, non-bloated coding practices and more.

Although Google is very secretive about the exact characteristics of their search algorithms, we make a point of keeping informed and up to date with the latest in SEO strategies, and apply these techniques to all of our web projects.

Additionally, every custom website is hand-coded to the standards set forth by the W3C. This results in streamlined code that is more easily digested and parsed by Google’s search bots. In other words, Google can easily recognize the keywords and search phrases peppered throughout the content of the site.

Do you offer e-commerce solutions (online stores, classified ads, etc.)? 

Yes, we offer several solutions to meet your individual goals and budget. From entry level to enterprise online shops, we have the right e-commerce solution for you.

Is a website going to cost a fortune? How much should I expect to pay for a website?

Our web design and development service costs are determined on a case by case basis. We have base fees for our standard websites, WordPress websites, and online shops. However, every client has different needs and our prices are adjusted accordingly. We work with your budget to create a plan that maximizes the features and SEO benefits for every project. Our philosophy is that everyone should have a web presence, whether it’s a simple digital business card, a comprehensive corporate site, an online shop, etc… We offer solutions for everyone.

What do I get with a website from Bennumedia? 

Well, it really depends on the particular project. Each project is tailored specifically to each clients individual needs and goals. However, there are some design and development staples that are included with every site.

What are hosting & domain names?

With any website, a hosting account and a domain name are required. Essentially, a hosting account is a rented space on a server; it is where the website resides and is displayed on the world wide web. The domain name is the websites unique url, or web address (www.bennumedia.com, for example).

Do you provide hosting & domain names? 

We do not provide these services directly, but we’re happy to help you setup a hosting account and select a domain name.

What sort of SEM (search engine marketing) do you offer?

Although we don’t specialize in SEM, we do provide effective tools that can significantly boost a websites exposure on the web. Namely, the WordPress blog, which is included with our standard websites.

We also give our websites a HUGE exposure jumpstart, in terms of traffic, backlinks and networking. Our qualified websites are submitted to web design award, showcase and design inspiration sites, including the IAB Mixx Awards, Webby Awards, The Best Designs, CSS Awards, and many more. Accepted websites gain dozens of backlinks, and exposure to thousands of potential clientele.

Finally, we include a lot of social networking elements in our custom websites.
