What are Responsive Templates & Responsive Designs?

Responsive website templates are websites that adjust automatically to fit the particular device you are browsing the website. For instance, adjusting website resolution and widths automatically to properly fit and be viewed by a Tablet or Mobile phone. No doubt, this has become a major new website structure, as people are now visiting websites on all sorts of devices; at home and on the road.

Responsive website templates are well-suited for those developers who envision themselves having both fluid-width and adaptive website that caters for any possible screen resolution. This means that every single responsive template seamlessly serves different media formats and devices people use to enter the website that is based on this template.

TemplateMonster produces responsive web design templates that each has 4 primary layout options and a bunch of additional ones. So to accurately respond to the medium that is being used to view them, the templates become fluid and easily adapt to the width of the browser. To degrade perfectly down to smaller screen sizes responsive templates utilize changing font sizes, navigation menu, columns, text blocks and images that scale and change their position. To see the responsive designs in action, please check out the templates' live demos and play with the browser window width.

What is Drupal?

Drupal is a PHP-based open source content management system (CMS) which is also considered a module framework. It enables its users to create and organize website content, edit the layout, automate some administrative functions, etc. Even with its diverse interface, all of the functions can still be carried out with no programming skills. Some experts see Drupal as a "web application framework" due to its wide range of services and functions.

Drupal CMS is considered today to be one of the most advanced content management systems available on the Internet. It provides its users with a set of capabilities for the most sophisticated website maintenance needs and requirements. Still, it remains comfortable and simple to use due to how well organized the interface is.

Joomla! CMS is a free, open source content management system (CMS) for managing a websites' content through a simple and functional interface - you need no coding skills. The Joomla!

What is WordPress?

Many bloggers use WordPress, and the number is constantly increasing. Though there are many free themes for WordPress available on the Web there is still no manufacturer that produces new, unique designs for WordPress on a regular basis.

FAQs - Web development & SEO services

We are looking for a new website. What is the best process involved?

For sure you should do some research, and that way also better understand the web development process and what's involved, i.e. prices, services, requirements, etc. The more informed you are the better.

Web-Conceptions are always more than happy to offer a FREE and NO OBLIGATION consultation, to explain some aspects involved in web design, website development and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). In doing so, our team can also better understand your specific industry, company, business goals and in turn website requirements. This then puts us in a much better position to offer more accurate advice and direction on an overall website and digital marketing solution, as well as a better idea on prices involved.

"We regularly offer website and digital marketing advice to companies and individuals without even taking them on board as customers."

As website consultants, it is our duty to show a superior level of understanding and know-how in web design, development, SEO and digital marketing.

PRICES for website design, development & SEO services - can you offer an indication of prices on how much a website and SEO will cost?

Of course we always provide a fully customised quotation with every website project. This includes a fully customised website project proposal.

Indeed, price indications are quite ambiguous and ad-hoc. What Web-Conceptions provide, like all web developers, is very much service-based, and very much unique to each client - web design, development or any consulting orientated. Each project differs so much that it is impossible to pinpoint a precise price. There are so many variables involved with each website project, and such a huge difference in time-spent, complexity and resources utilised.

After an initial meeting/consultation we will all have a much clearer idea of what would be required, and therefore price range.

What can be guaranteed is that there will never be any hidden charges, or never any unnecessary expenses incurred with your website solution. Web-Conceptions work on a new-age honesty and respect model. It must be highlighted that Web-Conceptions ALWAYS provide additional services above and beyond initial price agreement, i.e. extra workload and services are always conducted on each project (whether you know about it or not). Our goal is to delver the absolute best website solution and best performing website possible; so we will not rest until this has been achieved.

As freelance website developers, Web-Conceptions can offer extra-ordinary super deals on quotes and end prices. Why? Well, we have greater flexibility and no over heads. Projects incorporate only Web-Conception's services and the Client.

What about website hosting and domain names?

Web-Conceptions host and fully maintain technical aspects of hosting websites. Affordable prices and added value, so you can be sure everything is running smoothly.

Regarding domains names, this is commonly purchased by the client, so it remains under their name. Of course Web-Conceptions offer assistance in choosing the right domain name - indeed this is part of an overall Search Engine Optimisation service - including industry and market research, benchmarking, key word and phrase analysis.

If you already have a domain name, it is simply redirected to point to your new website and hosting service.

Can Web-Conceptions fix/revamp my existing website to make it look like the examples in website projects page or Template Monster?

Web-Conceptions can fix your existing website and make it work better for your purpose. This can be either amendments to design, code and content, or a total revamp. In this case, it will certainly look like the amazing websites we have as examples. Some existing websites might have limitations however, either in the code, or the way it was originally designed.

In any case, it is usually a lot easier, faster, more practical and more powerful (i.e. for SEO) to begin with a new website project, and just utilise much of your existing content and ideas as a base start. This is what Web-Conceptions recommend.

It is best to start a website project fresh, ensuring the right structure and conditions are met.

Many companies now offer SEO service. How can I be sure I will get what I paid for?

Excellent question. At web-Conceptions we also get "spammed" by many companies around the world claiming they can help us boost search engine ranking. Be wary, double check, and speak to an expert in person before even replying./p>

In truth, it is very difficult (if not impossible) to guarantee high search engine ranking. It very much depends on your specific industry/field, how much competition is out there and the websites of these competitors. Even then, there are new websites entering the market on a regular basis, whilst others are constantly making updates and improving their own search ranking - SEO. Indeed, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is fast-becoming a cut-throat and very competitive industry. Of course this is because of how important it has become, and how much value it can bring to your website and end business. Appearing highly and credibility in Google will ultimately be, if not already, the most important aspect of marketing and PR.

Web-Conceptions never exaggerate about SEO or about what search results can be delivered with your website - only honest, well researched, and educated indications.

Web-Conceptions are always upfront and honest on what can be achieved in SEO prospects - always conducting in-depth research, competitor benchmarking and manual SEO analysis well in advance. It is also VERY important to highlight that building a website is only half the workload in SEO - Web-Conceptions build the web structure and platform from which to launch, setting you on the right path, and offering regular advice and direction. How you maintain it is the other half!

Can you boost my search engine ranking without making changes to my website?

This has become a very common question in recent days, as many people are only now realising the power of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), and rather then invest in a whole new website infrastructure, they rather just make some alterations to their exiting website. In many ways, we believe this is simply cutting corners, and is a big No No.

Having said that, it is not impossible. The simple answer is yes, it is possible, but we do not recommend it - success rate will be considerably less and much less assured. There are certain strategies and techniques we incorporate to boost search engine ranking, i.e. content, design structure and code, links, URL, digital marketing campaign, etc. The more of these you adopt, and the more specific they are to your industry and to your ideal key words, then the greater chance your website has of ranking highly in search engines. This is in addition to any Search Engine Marketing (SEM) and digital marketing you adopt. All of this is best to start from the beginning, ensuring all elements have been covered, and covered properly.

Think of property development. Once a project has started, another developer would not like to get involved to fix it and finish it, as they will not be so sure what has happened in the areas that matter most, i.e. foundations, wall structure, engineering, electrical. The same holds true with a website. Our programmers work specifically with their own code, and prefer to not get involved with other code. Its actually a lot more work!

What we can do however is make alterations to content, meta tags and external digital marketing, i.e. link-building and social media integration.

Web-Conceptions highly advise starting a website from scratch, allowing the development team to intentionally build an ad-hoc website, layer-upon-layer to ultimately build a structure that will work best for your SEO purposes.

I am not based in any of your contact locations. Can I still use your service, and how effective will the website project/solution be?

Of course you can. We encourage this. We thrive on this.

In fact, it has always been our main purpose and freelance web development philosophy; to work with anyone in the world, and from anywhere in the world. This is the Internet - a global community. Indeed, the Internet allows all sorts of communication. Online, we are able to easily brainstorm, share ideas, crosscheck, complete updates, uploads and of course transfer payment method. Everything is fast, easy and efficient - especially to the environment. If however your project is more complex and requires face-to-face interaction, then we will endeavour to reach out, and have one or more of our team members visit on site.

As a base model, Web-Conceptions work with anyone around the world.

This means we will visit you wherever you are in the world; Sydney, Auckland, UK, Germany, Scandinavia, South America, Asia, Africa, Middle East...anywhere.

Our contact locations are in Nicosia, Cyprus; Paris, France; and Melbourne, Australia. From here we can reach you.

Do Web-Conceptions only use website templates themes?

No. Web-Conceptions can design an entire website and brand from scratch, either by working with a graphics designer or utilising a fully unique web design theme - both of these will cost extra. Web-Conceptions support and highly recommend its partner Template Monster; using their website themes are the most efficient and indeed successful method.

Remember, Web-Conceptions customises both unique and non unique template themes in terms of graphics and content, so they essentially become unique in any case, and like no other around.

Just on this, Web-Conceptions also work with graphics designers for other areas, such as logo design and integration and banners.

Our website design themes are truly the most efficient and creative in the world. They work!

Our company already has a web master/developer. How will your service integrate with this?

Great! We always say that 50% of a website project is in the building, whilst the other 50% is in actual maintenance. So if you have someone to look after the website later, then you can be sure of a much greater success rate. A web master/developer will also usually have a better (and more technical) idea of your requirements, of our services and of the overall project. This only help and lead to a much more successful and efficient web development solution.

Thus, Web-Conceptions offer all web design, development and SEO services, whether you have an existing web development team or not. And also whether they are in-house or another external web design-development company. We work with everyone.

On-going website maintenance is crucial to an overall digital marketing campaign, maintaining online presence and search engine ranking.
