What questions can we answer for you?
What does Buzzquake do? Do you build websites?
In addition to building websites, we offer many other services. Please see our Services page for more details.
What is your process for building a website?
How much will a new website cost?
There are so many factors that go into building a website created to satisfy your organization’s goals that it is impossible for us to quote a price without talking to you more about your project. Please contact us to tell us more about your desired website so that we can give you an accurate quote.
Do you help with Social Media?
I looked at your project profile form but I’m unclear on my business goals. Can you help with that? Can you help organize my website?
Yes, we often facilitate discovery/content workshops designed to help our new clients determine what their website goals should be. The discovery process helps organization’s structure their websites, including menus, so that visitors can navigate them easily. For more details about Discovery process, check out our Web Design Process page.
Isn’t just having a web presence enough?
Some people view their websites as electronic brochures. They don’t expect to get any sales from them and their expectations are usually met! It seems like a shame to us to spend the money required to make a website look good and not take the extra steps to receive a return on investment (ROI). We build Calls-to-Action (CTAs) into your website to encourage site visitors to take action to submit a form, schedule an appointment, contact you, etc., thus putting your website to work for you and providing you with a return on your investment.
If Buzzquake builds a website, who is responsible for the content (text and images)?
We work collaboratively with our clients on content development. The images used in our websites are often a combination of images we choose to create an impactful design plus images provided by our clients of scenes at their business or their clients’ businesses.
For more details about content development and designs, please visit our Website Design page and our Content Development page.
Do you provide consulting services independent of a specific project?
Yes. We are frequently called on to provide expertise and guidance and enjoy providing solutions for website projects.
What’s the first step I should take if I want to work with Buzzquake?
You can contact us one of two ways:
- If you would like to talk your project over with us then please contact us so we can set up a time to talk.
- If you are confident in what you are looking for, please complete and submit our Website Project Profile form. When we receive your form data we will reach out and schedule a time to talk with you.
What platform do you develop your websites on?
We have over 10 years of experience working with the WordPress platform and continue to feel that it best suits our clients’ needs. As of January 2022, WordPress is used by over 43.2% of websites on the internet, up from 39.1% in 2021. WordPress is used by 65.2% of all websites using a Content-Management System (CMS), which is a huge market share. The second most popular CMS — Shopify — has a market share of 6.6%. Wix, Squarespace, and Joomla are next, with 2.8%, 2.7%, and 2.6% market shares, respectively.
What is included in the Buzzquake Care Plan? And what is the cost?
Please see our Website Care Plan page for more details on our coverage. If you are interested, contact us for our current pricing.
How quickly do you return phone calls and email?
We typically return emails and phone calls within 24 hours of receiving them. Messages received on Friday or over the weekend will be returned on Monday.
Is it better to post on my website or on my social media pages?
What should I do with my website after it's launched? Do I need to blog? If so, why? My website doesn’t seem to be getting many visitors. What do you suggest?
Content is king! One of the best ways to increase your site’s search rankings is to add new content to your website on a regular basis. If you are contemplating creating a new website you need a plan for how you plan to add content to it moving forward. For other methods to drive visitors to your website and increase your overall site traffic, see our Traffic Amplification page.
Where do you get images for websites?
Clients can provide them, or, with client permission, we will source them for a client. If you provide us with an image, we ask that you be sure that you have permission from the owner of the image or hold a license that allows you to use that image on your website.
Can you add text and images to my website for me?
Do you provide web hosting?
We do not provide web hosting services, but we recommend WordPress hosting from SiteGround. We ask our clients to purchase web hosting on their own and then provide us with the relevant information.
I don’t have a domain name yet? What do I do? Can you help me with that? Do you help with branding and logos?
Yes and no. We help companies perform domain name searches and advise them on which domain names would be best. While we do not design logos or otherwise brand companies we have partners who do and would be happy to make a referral for you. Contact us for more specific information.
My website is really slow. Can you help me get it to run faster?
Yes, there are a number of things we can do to speed up your website. Learn more about how the page load speed of your website can affect your conversion rates.
How can email marketing help my business? Can you help me create a template for my email marketing campaigns?
Email provides among the highest ROI of all marketing. After a website, it is the most important form of marketing for most organizations. And yet, most organizations don’t do it very well. You can learn more about our Email Marketing services on our Traffic Amplification page.
I don’t understand Google Analytics. Can you help me with that? How do I know whether my website is achieving my goals?
We are strong believers in using Google Analytics data to make decisions aimed at improving your site’s (and organization’s) ability to meet your goals. Please contact us to discuss how we can help you interpret your site’s analytics.
