Frequently Asked Questions

Many people say that they have been there, done that and it didn't work. What can you do to help me?

Contact us for a free consultation if you see yourself in any of the following comments:

  • I spent lots of money developing my website ... I can't see that it has generated any profit or interest.
  • My website was designed years ago and it looks 'old fashioned'.
  • My website loads much too slowly and we've had complaints.
  • My website looks like it was made with a cookie cutter approach. I need a custom solution.
  • My website is just a "brochure" and now I know we need to do more.
  • My competitor's website is much better than mine.
  • My website has few visitors and is generating no leads.

How will people find my website?

Internet surfers will generally find your website in four ways:

  1. By using a search engine/directory service such as Google, Yahoo, AltaVista, Lycos, etc.
  2. By finding you through links or banner ads from other sites.
  3. By word of mouth (if the site is good the word will get out).
  4. By seeing your web address in conventional marketing/advertising materials developed by you. Your Web address should be included in every piece of paper that leaves your organization and every conventional advertising campaign you launch.

We will help you with all of these approaches. We will see that your site is listed with all the major search engines and will work with you to develop reciprocal links with established websites. Our goal is not just to design your website but also to make it successful by keeping it updated with new material and by generating the traffic to your site that will result in increased sales.

Does my website need a facelift?

Suppose your website has great content and was on the cutting edge two years ago. Now, however, it looks dated and stale. Perhaps your content has outgrown your old design and navigation system. Can visitors navigate your website without using the back buttons on their browser, are they complaining about the blinking text? These are examples of problems that indicate a redesign of your website is in order.

Do my graphics/pictures take too long to load?

How long does it take your website to fully load? Most visitors will click off a website without viewing the content after a 30 seconds because they are tired of waiting for the graphics to load. Although we would all like to have Broadband connections like DSL, Cable, Wireless or Satellite only 30% actually have a fast connection. With this in mind we will design your site to load quickly and still display your graphics. Ask us how we can fine-tune your existing graphics and pictures for faster loading.

I think I'm ready for an e-commerce/e-business website. Can you help me?

A few years ago, most Web sites were simply online "brochures" but now the Web is an integral marketing tool; for some companies the Internet is their top marketing consideration. E-business encompasses all the ways that a website can improve communication, distribution, customer support, marketing, etc. Often e-business is directed more towards reducing costs (e.g. reducing mailings of catalogs) or improving productivity (e.g. applications and content aimed at sales force support) than direct sales.

Web Site Maintenance

Why do I need a maintenance plan?

It's vital if you want more than just the simple updating of text. Seering Media will take care of your website maintenance including: installation of new scripts, upgrading and fixing existing scripts, implementation of design changes, updaing content and analytical reports describing website improvements. The cost for this work depends on what work needs to be done. Our basic plan starts at $35.00 per month. Contact us for a quote.

How often should changes be made to my website?

How often you change your website depends largely upon your business. Some businesses update catalogs and price lists once per week while others just need to make periodic updates. Seering Media will tailor the maintenance program to your specific needs.

Application Development

How much does it cost to have a custom application built?

Cost varies widely depending upon the complexity of the site, number of pages, whether databases are required, etc . Contact us with a list of requirements and we will provide you with a written estimate.

What material should I provide to get my web site started?

The main thing is to send us all the information you would like to see on your site such as marketing materials, newsletters, etc. Although we prefer that the information come to us in electronic form, we can scan graphics and perform data entry for a nominal fee

Why do I need a website?

There is literally no company in the world that cannot benefit from having a web presence. Even if it's just to list the location of your business, it will help. More and more people utilize the web daily to search for information and shop for products. If you want to be competitive you are must compete.

How much does it cost?

Since every web site and every client is unique it's difficult to say *exactly* how much your website will cost. The good news is, the majority of websites that we design begin at $900 and Seering Media offers packages suitable for any budget.

Will having a web site be worth my money?

The main thing to keep in mind is that you need to send people to your site. You need to to put your website address on your stationery, business cards, and signage. Seering Media will do its part in helping you to succeed by promoting your site with the search engines and help you obtain reciprocal links with established websites.

What if I already have a web site?

Websites get outdated pretty quickly, so Seering Media offers packages that can help you get your website current and up-to-date. Many of our clients have not gotten the support they deserve from their web design firms and therefore have come to us looking for fast, thorough updates, and help in keeping their site dynamic and up-to-date. We have also been asked to add functionality to sites that lacked it before.
