Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a short list of the questions we are asked most frequently by our clients, our FAQs. If you don’t see the answer to your question here, please call us at (800) 245-6042 or contact us.

  • Q.What do your websites cost?
    A. Our prices depend on many factors. To get a better idea of the cost of what you need, give us a quick phone call at (800) 245-6042. We’ll ask a few questions about your project, what features and interactivity you’ll need, who will handle content development, whether or not you’d like to sell online. After this short discussion, we should be able to give you a ballpark number. If you’re still interested, we’ll be happy to develop a comprehensive proposal that outlines the scope, process and costs.
  • Q. How long does it take to build a site?
    A. Once we have all the content (text and images), it should take 3-6 weeks for us to design and build a typical, small scale website of 8-10 pages. The most time consuming phase of any web project is collecting and writing the content.
  • Q. Why should we hire Godigi.net?
    A. We started our business in 2003, after each having strong and successful careers in computer programming, graphic design, and marketing. We believe that our strong portfolio and our solid reputation for producing quality work on time and on budget are our best sales tools. We provide a list of references with each proposal.
  • Q. Are your prices flat rate or time and materials?
    A. We offer both options. If you stick to the timetable and scope defined in our flat rate proposal, we can guarantee that the price we quote will be the price we charge. However, if you want more flexibility with regard to collecting materials, making changes to the design or even making changes to functionality, we are happy to work on a time and materials basis.
  • Q. How does the development process work?
    A. There are nine steps in our development process

    1.Discovery – If the project is a rebuild, we review your current content and make further recommendations for improvements. If it’s a new site, we start by discussing the subjects and functionality you envisage for your site and develop an outline for you.
    2.Content – You compile all the content for the website, including all text and images.
    3.Preliminary Design – We create a home page concept including colors, fonts, image style and layout.
    4.Organization – When we have received all content in its final version, we review it to determine the best way to organize the information. The structure of the site is based on this organizational scheme and must be approved by you.
    5.Design Revision – After reviewing the initial design, you have the opportunity to request changes.
    6.Implementation – Once we’ve received your approval on the design, we move on to implementation. This is where the approved design becomes concrete and where we add site-specific features.
    7.Page Content – When we have all the content that will be included on the site and an approved design, we will enter all the data.
    8.Testing – We run through a final set of tests to be sure that everything is functional. You have an opportunity at this time to test the site as well.
    9.Launch – Once we have your final approval, we launch the site. The marks the end of the project.
  • Q. What are your payment terms?
    A. Generally we require a one third deposit. The second third is due at design approval, and the final third at launch or 30 days after final testing begins, whichever comes first. If you choose time and materials, we require a deposit of $1,700 (about 20 hours).
  • Q. Are your sites mobile-friendly?
    A. Yes. Every site we have built, since 2012 has been mobile-friendly. The method we use to achieve this is known as responsive design, which ensures that the site works well on a wide variety of screen sizes, from smartphones and tablets through to small and large desktop monitors.
  • Q. Will my website design be Search Engine friendly?
    A. Yes. All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc. To gain maximum visibility by the search engines, we highly recommend utilizing our comprehensive SEO services.
  • Q. How do I update my website?
    A. There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up to yourself and your budget restrictions. Of course, Godigi is always available to help you with any future additions and changes you would like. We will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs. If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask Godigi to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependent upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present. We can provide an on line content management system where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. e.g. company news. Alternatively we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website in one action using spreadsheets etc. We can also add databases if you wish.
  • Q. Can I see how many visitors I’ve had to my website?
    A. Yes we can provide web tracking software which records where you visitors are coming from and which pages they looked at, which search engines are being used, which phrases are being typed into which search engines and many more interesting web tracking facts which you should find useful for future marketing campaigns.
  • Q. I already have a website and I need it updated, can you help me?
    A. Yes, we would be happy to look at your existing website and give you a quote for updating it.
  • Q. Will we need to have a face-to-face meeting to begin the project?
    A. In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs online via, our secure testing server for you to view the work in progress. This way we can have regular communication to ensure you are getting exactly what you expect from the Godigi team.
