Got questions? Here are the most frequently asked ones from MAGI clients.
Your time is valuable. We’ve compiled common questions into a FAQ for your convenience.
How much will my website cost?
We like to keep things simple, therefore charge a single, predictable monthly fee for your website that’s easy to budget.
This includes building your website, maintenance & hosting, plus a bevy of complimentary, enterprise-grade services.
Additionally throughout the year, we roll-in value-added perks to help our clients grow their online business (ie. custom training).
Optionally, for those looking to put their online presence into overdrive MAGI Web Design offers à la carte add-on services.
Space is limited as we give each client the focus they deserve, therefore our monthly rate will ultimately increase for new customers.
Your monthly fees are locked-in at time of purchase for the length of your stay with us.
How long will it take to build my website?
The speed of development varies based on the complexity of your website.
We believe quality is a crucial aspect to the success of any online business looking for scalable growth, therefore we ensure quality code is implemented & properly tested.
For a standard 5 page website, the process may take 30+ days, whereas larger websites with an e-commerce store & other complex needs may take 120+ days.
We’ll factor your desire to launch within a given window & work with you to meet your goals.
Included with your website plan is Advanced SEO services, which requires a lot of work on our end to help you dominate your market’s search results.
We also focus on the customer journey, so your call-to-actions are as effective as possible. Through analysis & fine-tuning, we optimize your website for conversions.
How long has MAGI Web Design been building websites?
Some members of our team have been building websites since the internet was in diapers.
Our Marketing Director has grown many successful websites since the early 90’s, building several multi-million dollar businesses in the process.
The MAGI Web Design team has grown to include talented coders, marketers, designers & copywriters who are all experts in their field.
If a quoted task proves beyond our expertise in your specific case, we contract the best experts for the job without charging you additional fees. We eat the cost as a value-added service.
Our top priority is customer satisfaction. You’re in good hands when you work with us.
What kind of businesses do you work with?
MAGI Web Design works with small-to-medium sized businesses & entrepreneurs who are growth-focused.
Our mission is to help you build a solid brand, strategize its growth & implement those strategies for optimal market impact.
We also work with clients who have established websites & a solid brand reputation. Our à la carte add-on services are available as stand-alones to any business looking to grow their online presence.
For instance you may wish to utilize our Videos service to populate your social media feed with highly-engaging content, or refresh your website’s visuals with our Photography service.
For more details, reach us using the Contact Form above or call us toll-free.
Who will I work with during the project?
During the initial discovery process & the project itself you’ll have two points of contact — our Marketing Director & Lead Developer.
Both will be made available to you should you have any questions (technical or otherwise) during your stay with us.
You may occassionally communicate directly with other MAGI Web Design team members or outside contractors, depending on the task.
We try to limit the frequency of these external interactions so you can enjoy a seamless, unified experience from a recognized voice you trust.
How does the payment process work?
We take great pride in our simplified pricing model. Here you won’t find confusing & restrictive multi-tier plans or steep one-time fees.
At MAGI Web Design we offer a single, affordable monthly plan that gets your brand online & selling.
Work begins with your first monthly installment & we require a minimum 6 month commitment.
For those looking to accelerate their growth, add-on services are available as either one-time or monthly fees, depending on the service.
Our services come as a single monthly invoice for your convenience. We accept all major credit cards & offer additional payment gateways for ultimate flexibility. We also accept automatic payments, so you can set it & forget it.
What platform will you build my website on?
MAGI Web Design utilizes the most powerful Content Management System (CMS) for web development available, WordPress.
WordPress powers over 30% of the web & is fully customizable. As an open-source platform, WordPress is constantly updated with new functionalities & security features.
We’re experts with the platform & understand how to best shape the experience for your needs.
We’re also experienced with simplified CMS platforms like Shopify, Squarespace & Wix, but they do not offer the level of control we require & depending on the service, take a percentage of your online sales. Additionally you do not own your website with these simplified platforms.
At MAGI Web Design, you own 100% of your investment.
Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?
All of our client websites are custom-built in-house, so we do not update existing websites created by external web firms.
We stand 100% behind everything we craft & can only do so knowing who crafted each element.
Additionally, we wish to avoid issues of liability when multiple programmers touch the same code over time.
Despite this policy, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss a website rebuild. Our monthly plan goes well beyond building you an awesome website & we’d be happy to discuss your situation.
Can you help me write content for my website?
Our Website Copywriting add-on service is there for those who’d like a highly-skilled professional to take their concepts & turn them into high-converting, SEO friendly webpage copy.
This service is specific to static webpages & we do not offer a service for blog article writing. We believe the strongest way to gain authority in your industry is by writing dynamic content in your own voice. This fosters a deeper relationship with your customers.
We may however from time-to-time offer free or reduced-rate courses for our clients who wish to develop their writing skills.
Included with your monthly plan is a Brand Identity Narrative, which helps you design your brand’s story & a guided review to identify the optimal customer journey through your website.
Can you help me with photos for my website?
Absolutely, we feel strongly that your website deserves world-class imagery.
Our Photography add-on service is available on a per photo basis.
Along with access to millions of beautiful stock photos, we employee professional photographers to capture the essence of your message in multiple formats, such as corporate headshots, studio portraits & editorial profiles that showcase your business on the move.
Do I own my website?
After your initial 6 month commitment, you 100% own your website. This means should you wish to end ties with us, you’re free to do so.
We build our client websites with this possibility in mind, so there’s a process in place for a swift & painless hand-over of the keys to your kingdom.
MAGI Web Design would be sad to see you go, so we offer value-added perks throughout the year to keep clients happy with their investment, but we understand business goals change & life happens.
It’s your business, your website.
