    Yes. Your website is designed by Wix with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind. All of our Wix websites feature a sitemap, SEO-friendly HTML formatting, meta descriptions, responsive design and much more. More advanced search engine optimization settings are available as well, such as alt tags on images and page-specific descriptions. We complete the SEO work in the initial design. You have the option (as the website owner with full admin access) to hire someone, hire your designer, or another company to do more advanced and continual SEO work. SEO never stops. The best thing you can do for SEO as the owner is to get a free Google Business Profile by visiting https://www.google.com/business/. This will verify your business with Google and help your website stand out and get ranked on Google. Then, log into a Google Search Console and start improving your performance on Google Search.

Second, choose a price that fits your budget. We recommend the $299 design. After you purchase a website design, you'll receive an email with a questionnaire that you'll use to send us all of your business information. Once we receive your business information, we begin working on building your new website and will send it to you within the next 10 business days for your initial review. We work with you for a few rounds of edits & updates until you're happy with the design (3 rounds for the $299 Design, one-on-one meetings for the $999 Design). You can add any additional logos, certifications, photos, sample reports etc. After the final edits are made, we will transfer the website to your ownership in your own Wix.com account. The website can go live on the internet whenever you are ready. You own and control everything. This makes it easy for you to track analytics, manage your blog, post on all your social media platforms from your dashboard and update your website as you please.

    Yes. Just send us what you have, and we'll get to work on the design. You can keep sending us the information as you get it. We will work with you until you're happy with the website design.
