We gathered the questions people ask us all the time. FAQ icon

How much does a website cost:Answer

We build highly effective websites from as little as $495.
The price of a fully customized website, the only kind we build, is a bit more than a template based site.
The sites we build include SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and are scale-able to ensure they will operate as designed now and into the future as the web changes.
The price of your site is determined by the functions and capabilities we code into it.
If you think of it this way it may be more clear. What is the price of your house? If it is a one bedroom bungalow in a small town it should cost much less than a mansion on the cost in California.
We determine the fairest price for the sites we build on two factors:

  • How much coding will be installed
  • How long will it take?

Can you guarantee my website will be found on the first page of a web search? Answer

No reputable website design company can guarantee that your website will appear on the first page when someone is searching for a product or service on the web.
If you hear a web designer “Guarantee” that your site will appear on the first page of the search engine results you should run away from them as fast as you can.
If they really knew how to do that (it would require knowing the ever changing algorithms that search engines use) they would be selling the information instead of building websites.

We keep up with the ‘Best Practices’ on the web and incorporate all the latest tools to give your website the greatest opportunity of being found on the first page by your customer. This is one of the top reasons why we want to meet with you and gather as much information about your business and your competitors. We need to understand your business and your goals so we can build an outstanding website.
It may take weeks or months for your website to make its way to the front page when someone searches for your product or service.
There are many things that affect search results and the top search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo change their algorithms frequently to deter web design cheaters from artificially inflating the value of one website over another in the search results.
Your competitors are the next biggest obstacle to your websites success in getting to the front page. They may have a better looking website or better ‘under the hood’ things called meta tags and keywords. (Don’t worry if you don’t know what they are, we take care of those tags and keywords for you in every website we build.)
You competition may have more inbound links or more searches just because they do more advertising, trade shows or hand out more business cards.

I don’t live in Milwaukee, should I hire a local web designer? Answer

Not necessarily. One of the biggest advantages of web design over other professions is that it can be done from anywhere in the world. Whether you live in Milwaukee, Chicago, Minneapolis or anywhere in the United States really doesn’t matter as long as you’re able to communicate with us.

Spring Tree Web Design can do a terrific job without ever meeting you. For smooth communication we offer several convenient ways to contact us.

I saw a website that I really liked, can you build the same for me? Answer

Not exactly. We cannot duplicate someone else’s website because it is unethical and is also a violation of copyright laws. If you came across a website that you like, we will do our best to create something that falls within a similar design concept.

How long does it take to get my new website up and running?Answer

Typically it takes three to four weeks to complete your website but it may take up to six weeks if special programming or design work is needed. We will do our best to complete your website as soon as possible. If you have your content ready and are very clear and honest with us during the initial meeting we can complete your website more efficiently. Your website is your brand, your home on the web and we know it is more important to make it the best it can be rather than do it fast and get it wrong.

What if I only need a page added or something changed on my existing website? I don’t want an entire new site and I don’t want to pay a lot of money to have this done. Answer

Many of our clients have great looking websites that don’t need to be rebuilt from scratch. If you are uncomfortable about making a change on an existing website yourself or if your web builder is no longer available we can make the change for you.
Call Spring Tree Web Design today to find out how little it will cost.

Will you host my website?Answer

Yes we do host websites. Letting us do all the behind the scenes work saves you time and money. If you already have a website hosted somewhere we will take care of everything involved in moving it for you.

Do you have maintenance plans?Answer

Yes we do.  We believe in establishing long term relationships and many of our busy clients depend on us to keep their websites updated. Our maintenance plans ensure that your site is secure. We add new content regularly to help improve your search engine ranking and make recommendations to improve your businesses results.

What do I do if I want you to change or add a web page after the site is complete? Answer

Contact us and tell us what you would like to do. We will review your website and prepare a change order that will ensure the change will not affect anything else on your website. Minor changes can normally be accomplished in a few hours but it may take a day or two for more complicated upgrades. Our prices are very attractive and save you time.

If you are behind and you don’t do something about your website now you can only expect to fall further behind.

At Spring Tree Web Design we will do everything in our power using all the tools available to optimize your website but you should expect that it will take weeks or perhaps as long as two months before you see your website move higher in search engine rankings. Getting to the front page in the search results is a process that involves not just your website but all of your other marketing efforts.

We are a team dedicated to making your website work hard at driving business to your business.
We are proud of what we do and most of our new clients are referred to us be existing clients.
