Follow Up Questions for your Website Designer

Your website designer has finished your project, you’ve made your final approval and the website is launched, looking and functioning beautifully. Many business owners would safely assume your website is complete, the leads & sales will start pouring in and no more work needs to be done. But there are still some follow up questions you’ll want to ask the website design team. Often times, your website development company offers follow up services in order to completely SEO optimize your website and get you highly ranked in the search engines. Total Web Company has highlighted the 6 follow up questions you should ask your website designer after launch.

6 Questions for your Website Designer after Launch

Do you offer services to promote my website?
If you’re just looking for a branded website to highlight your services, than this may not be an option you want to pursue. However, many times a business wants to use their website to generate new clients, sales and leads through search results and social media. Be sure to ask your website designer if they offer digital marketing and SEO services in order to get your site ranking highly in Google.

How long will this platform be relevant for?
With technology and design trends constantly changing, you want to get a good idea of how long this new website will last, depending on your industry. At Total Web Company we build all of our websites on the most up-to-date platforms to ensure our clients get the most out of their websites.

Is my website compatible across all devices?
While this is a question that should be asked before your website design project begins, it is important to reiterate the point again afterwards. Do your due diligence and be sure to look at your website on a desktop, tablet, laptop and mobile device. If something doesn’t look right to you, be sure to bring it up to your website designer.

Can you continue to expand my website?
As your business grows, your website needs to grow with it. A good rule of thumb: your website is never complete. Ask your design team what options they offer to continue to grow and expand your site through blogs and landing pages. Many Total Web Company maintenance packages include at least 1 additional page added to a website monthly.

How long until I start showing up in the SERP (Search Engine Result Pages)?
An age-old answer to an age-old question: it depends. There are many factors that play into how well and how quickly your website will rank: industry competition, keyword search volume and site content. If you launch a website and never touch it again, the likelihood of you ranking amongst your competitors is low. However, if you invest in an SEO & website maintenance service to constantly update and improve your website, content & SEO you can begin ranking highly within 3-6 months.

Can I access my website stats?
Your designer should implement tracking software (Google Analytics) onto your website and walk you through how to read the data and analyze it. Once they do, you can access the stats through your analytics account at any time.

How can I track my website progress?
Besides an analytics account, there are other softwares you can subscribe to that will track your rankings and progress in the SERP. However, most business owners do not have time to take on these tasks by themselves and hire a digital marketing company to handle such tasks and data analysis. Ask your website designer if they offer SEO and digital marketing services.

Keeping in mind the mantra that a website is never done, if you want to truly maximize on the website you just invested in it is a good idea to maintain a relationship with a website designer that offers SEO and digital marketing. A website is an asset to your business and something that would be constantly worked and improved upon.
