Do I need a Web site & Why?
A website is your 24/7 virtual salesperson. When you have a website it exposes your business to the world with possible customers that have an interest in your product. Your website can also be used to improve credibility, show more information than you would have at your brick and mortar. Website's increase sales and clients.
Does the Design Firm need to be local?
No. With today's technology of extranets, email, phone and the Internet, websites can be successfully created and published, even when the design firm and client are in the same city or thousands of miles apart.
How long does it take to have a web site designed?
The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site design, and our current client design schedule. We also work on your deadlines if they are within reason of the complexity.
What is a domain name & How do I get one?
A domain name is a specific web site address that you choose and register with a registrar such as AllDomains, Register.com. Domain names end in .com, .net, .org. edu, .biz .gov and more. Sky Web Works can register your domain name for you. We also handle your billing, so you don't need to worry about 2-5 different invoices from different companies.
How much does a web site cost?
Without knowing the all of the needs or the complexity of your unique project, it' is very difficult to quote an accurate price. You'll find those cheaper web design firms offering templates, cut and paste work, etc. Sky Web Works guarantees a hand made custom design so you're getting (and paying for) the original…one you will never see duplicated on the Internet.

Do I own my web site once it's finished?
Yes! All payments must be made and paid in full before we release any contents or backups of your site.
Can you write the content for my web site?
Sky Web Works can write your content, however you may not like the additional price that comes with this. We have found that 98% of our Pioneer Companies have already created most or all of their content for the website. Sky Web Works does edit copy if it needs it. Faxed content is not a good way to send content. Microsoft Word is awesome.
I'm not sure exactly what my new site needs. What do I do?
We're happy to help you through this process. Start with looking at your competitor's sites. Then, look at sites that appeal to you, whether or not they are in direct competition with you. Simply look for color, font, how the navigation works. Next, complete our request for proposal and a representative will phone you back.
Can I see my site while it is under development?
YES OH YES! We require it because your involvement and approval is essential throughout the all stages of your site and ensures a successful publishing. Sky Web Works has developed a client extranet just for this interaction along with one-on one attention.
Do I need a brand?
Brand recognition is an important factor in your business, the simple answer is yes! Typically with brand design, we implement this and will not skip over this important factor due that a brand has so many places to be. A brand belongs on everything from your envelopes to your invoices and marketing promotions. A brand shows who you are, and what you mean. For more information about Branding click here.
Do I need website maintenance?
Site maintenance means minor changes to your web site. Minor changes is a for example request to change out a sentence or your address. This does not include addition of new pages or major revisions, such as an entire page revision or revisions that go past ½ hour. If your web site will require at least one change a month, a maintenance agreement is more cost efficient than an hourly rate.
What is a Web host? Do you provide this service?
A Web host provides you space on a server where your web site will live and breath. Sky Web Works provides outstanding website hosting. We are not a reseller for another company which in turn saves you money. With our hosting accounts, you the client has access to web statistics, web mail, *control panel, email accounts, unlimited email alias. To review our Hosting, please click here.
