Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we help clients write their website content. Your website content is a crucial piece of the puzzle — it is how you communicate your value to your website visitors and convince them to get in touch with you or buy your product.

Our professional copywriter has over a decade of experience writing professional content for websites, working with large brands like P&G as well as dozens of small businesses. We can either write the content for you, convert your rough outline/bullet points into full website pages, or work with you side by side to write the content over Zoom.

Over the years, we refined our process to be simple for you and effective for everyone. We use a system called the “Content Worksheet” that allows us to easily organize content in a single document, accessible to everyone working on the project. If you want to get a preview of our process or have questions, feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your website.

After the website is launched, you have an option to either get training on how to use your website (via Zoom and pre-recorded videos) and/or leave the website maintenance up to us via our monthly website care plan. Feel free to contact us if you’re interested in discussing your project or if you have any questions about website maintenance.

Many of our clients prefer to outsource their weekly and monthly website maintenance tasks to us. Our website maintenance plans include: 

  • Website hosting
  • One hour of any website edits per month (more, if needed)
  • Server and website updates
  • Security patches
  • Monthly technical and analytics reports 
  • Monitoring your website for any bugs
  • Daily website backups
  • And more! Get in touch with us to discuss the details. 

We are a fully remote, friendly team of nerds with headquarters in Toronto, Canada. While all of us work from our comfy home offices, we work with clients across Canada and the US (and overseas!). In addition to our North American clients, we’ve also had the pleasure of working with wonderful clients from Singapore, UAE, Malaysia, France, and many more! We’re a remote-first company and love working with clients across the globe.

The bulk of our communication is done through Zoom, emails and optionally a website commenting system which allows you to leave feedback directly on your website. Regardless of where you’re located, we follow the same, proven step-by-step system we crafted and refined over the years. Modern technologies allow us to provide the same quality of service to clients regardless of their location. 

Get in touch with us to learn more about our services and to get your custom quote/proposal.

Step 1 –  Setup & Strategy Zoom Call: 

We create an outline of your website and discuss the content, page structure/layout, and aesthetics. 

Step 2 – SEO Research & Content Writing

We collaborate with you on writing the content for your website. If any specific content or graphic assets need to be provided, we will ask you to send them over. If you decide to purchase our SEO package, we will first do SEO research and give you website layout recommendations based on what your potential clients are searching for on Google. We prefer a data-driven approach to design. 

Step 3 – Homepage Design

We create the first draft of your homepage. After receiving your feedback, we make revisions to the homepage. 

Step 4 – Full Website Design & Development 

After the homepage is finalized, we proceed to build the rest of the website. 

Step 5: Website Launch & Training

We launch your website and either A) provide training on basic website management/editing or B) sign you up for our monthly website care plan if you prefer us to handle the website edits/updates/security. Either way, we got your back and will be there to answer any of your questions within 24 hours. 

Yes, we typically offer website hosting as part of our monthly maintenance package. Website hosting can make or break your users’ experience of your website, as it significantly affects your website’s speed and security. We recommend Cloudways.com managed hosting due to their lightning-fast speeds and excellent support, security and uptime. This is what we use ourselves to host our clients’ websites. 

While we prefer Cloudways’ Vulture High-Frequency servers, there are many other great web hosting providers, such as Kinsta, WPEngine, Flywheel and more. We prefer when clients use our web hosting as it makes it easier for us to maintain their website. However, we’ve also worked with IT teams from 500+ employee companies who preferred to host the websites on their own servers. It’s up to you — we’re flexible!

Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or to learn more.

Investment varies depending on the features you need, number of pages, the type of website (e.g. eCommerce vs. small business website), etc. This is why we always have a call with every client to discuss the project in detail, and come up with a custom quote. Building a website is similar to building a house — each is unique and needs to be customized depending on your needs and preferences. Get in touch with us today to discuss your website get a custom proposal.
