Frequently Asked Questions
We at Johnny Flash Productions have been building web experiences since 2000 and in that time have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge. We crafted this FAQ page to answer many of the frequently asked questions we were asked along the way.
I’m new to this whole website thing, how does it work?
Never fear, that’s why we are here. You can learn about our time proven process in our web design process section.
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary. Though our website projects generally start in the $5,000 range for basic business sites and range upward depending on your unique needs.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A basic website typically takes around 4 weeks from beginning to end.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, we help you get this set up and we can work with your existing provider. We are not a web hosting company.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Yes it will. All the websites we design work on all devices. Depending on your requirements we can design and develop your site using responsive design so that the site is optimized for mobile devices.
What do you mean by “partners?”
We believe websites are never finished and that they require on-going care and marketing to be most effective. Therefore, we are looking for clients that want to partner with us for their design and marketing efforts. We don’t want clients, we want partners.
Do you do ecommerce/Online Store websites?
We sure do!
What is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection.
Do you provide training?
Yes! We provide all our partners with training on maintaining their website.
Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?
We sure can. As part of your project we can include social media and email marketing services.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key. You can read more about Search Engine Optimization best practices.
Do you write the content for my site?
We don’t directly write your content, however if you need help with this we can put you in contact with a copywriter who specializes in writing for the web.
Can you design my logo?
Absolutely. We have brand specialists who create amazing branding and logos for companies. You can view some of our logo designs in our graphic design portfolio.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.com
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer located in a data center that runs your website and email.
What is site maintenance?
Web maintenance consists of refreshing and adding content to the site, reviewing web site statistics and traffic on the site, monitoring the site for hacker activity, keeping an eye on server maintenance schedules or server errors. For some who don’t want to “mess with the website” having a team on call who can make changes to their site is the best solution. You can view our Website Care Plans here.
Can I maintain my own web site?
Yes, you can maintain the content. The web sites we develop are always created with your content management in mind. You will be able to manage the content including the addition of pages, menu items, blog posts, forms, and more.
Do you offer maintenance training?
Yes. It is part of the project fee. Plus, you will have a written manual.
