What kind of website do I get with Creative Canvas?

What if I already have a domain name?

No problem.  If you already have a domain, we’ll help you update the settings when it’s time to activate your Creative Canvas website.  If you don’t have a domain, you can register one through us – no problem.

Do you build online stores?

Yep!  Our basic e-commerce package includes up to 10 products, but have worked with clients that have over 1,000 products. We will evaluate your core needs, and come up with a plan that fits your business perfectly.

What do I need to do to get started?

You can either Schedule Your Free Consultation, or call us at 563-499-8332 to speak with someone first.  Initially we’ll focus on your core needs, so we can build an effective website that accomplishes all of your goals.

Can I update my own website?

With your CMS it’s easy to edit text, add pictures, videos, galleries, hyperlinks, downloadable documents, contact forms or whatever else you need.  We have created a list of documentation on our Support page to help clients with questions they have along the way.

How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?

The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google). however, there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimisation fundamentals built-in. Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise.

We are happy to talk to more about your search engine strategy if we haven’t already.

How will I know if anyone is visiting my website?

We will install Google analytics software on your new website and show you how to log into your Google analytics account where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including the number of visits, page views than the amount of time people are spending on your website.

Once you subscribe to one of our website care plans you will also receive more detailed analysis about your website performance and recommendations on how to improve.
