Common Myths & Misconceptions About Website Development

Are You Under The Wrong Impression?

When it comes to the process of website development there are certainly a lot of grey areas. The majority of people who build websites do so on just drag and drop CMSs like Wix or Weebly and the results really show it. Often times these websites come out clunky and the optimization options you have are very limited. So you decide to look into hiring professionals to get your website done, but the main issue is you don’t have any idea what they are talking about or what the work really entails. Well, we are here to shed some light on the topic at hand!

Myth: You Can Develop An Effective Website In Just One Weekend
While this would be the best-case scenario it simply isn’t something that’s feasible. It is common for it to take up to a week if not longer to get the full website up and running it all depends on how big the website is. The only time development could take about a weekend is if only a landing page is being built. Do not be under the impression that there is a ready-made template that will fit your website needs. Custom-built websites are the only acceptable way to build websites. 
 
Myth: Website Developers Strictly Write Code
While it does take code do write code that is far from everything that gets done on a website. Website developers are masters at optimization in many different forms. Here are a few things that web developers keep in mind while on projects:
  • Website speed optimization
  • Image Compression
  • Caching and server performance
  • Security
  • Design aspects to increase user experience
  • Evaluating the optimal design for optimized lead generation
  • etc.

Myth: Website Development Needs To Cost A Fortune 

A lot of other website development companies will probably hate us for this statement but it is the truth. A lot of the time clients of website development companies are being WAY OVERCHARGED. There are instances in which they will charge people for the smallest things. One of the most annoying things to us as a company is receiving a client that was being grossly overcharged by other development services. Those companies do nothing but capitalize on ignorance and it is a horrible thing to do. That is why we are crystal clear about what we are doing, how we do it, etc. Just to ensure we step out in front of the curtain and you can rest assured knowing we are working WITH the client in achieving their website dreams.
Myth: Developers Only Handle One Project At A Time
While sometimes we wish that was the case it is not, website development agencies are constantly bouncing around on projects to try and get as much done as possible as quickly as possible. If we are ever feeling burnt out on a website we will move our focus over to another one just so we can come back refreshed so that we can only bring the highest quality content!
 
Myth: Once A Site Is Launched You Cannot Make Changes
Reuploading websites with fresh new content is actually always an amazing thing to do! It shows search engines that the website is still active. With our services, we offer website maintenance services that covers any changes you want to be made to your website!
