It depends on the size of your website. Smaller websites which don’t require muchprogramming typically take 30-45 days. Larger websites requiring a good amount of programming and database work can take anywhere from 90 days on up, depending on how large it is. Actual time to develop a website will vary from project to project and depends on client approval times.

WordPress has a variety of plugins that create “pseudo flash” right within WordPress.These images can easily be swapped out after launch if needed. We prefer this method because it is inexpensive; can be updated by the client after launch, and iPads and iPhones can actually see the images. Flash is not loved by Apple devices, so we typically avoid it if possible.
Our website design company provides a wide array of website services, from design to development and custom applications. Our website company specialty is with search engine optimization, SEO. Our most popular service is to design and build custom search engine optimized websites but we also offer logo design and other graphic design services.
With the search engines there is never a guarantee. Our website company takes advantage of as many factors as possible to get you the best possible search engine ranking. However, no one knows all the factors used to determine ranking so there is no possible way to guarantee where you will rank.
It’s hard to say. Every site is set up differently so the reason why your site is not seen in the search engines is going to be different than another site. If your site was not designed and built to show up high in searches it is usually hard to get a good amount of traffic to the website.
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors. Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization, copywriting, and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs.
To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure.

This is a great question to ask and you should ask it of any web design and development firm you are considering. Many firms will farm out work to freelancers or interns. Some firms give little or no access to client’s who want to speak directly with their designers or developers. Our clients work directly with our Technical team. Who that will be depends on your project needs and what stage of the process you are in during the project.
No. We only support websites that we have fully built. We have this policy so that we can 100% stands behind everything that we craft. There are issues of liability of multiple programmers touching the same code over time.
“>YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible.

Absolutely not. If the client is not a good fit, the opportunity is not quoted. Creating a new website is a big endeavour, so the website designer and their client need to have synergies for the project to launch successfully. The same is true for customizations of existing themes. If we don’t feel that we’re a good fit or that WordPress isn’t a good fit, we’ll quickly tell you so.
Absolutely not! WordPress started as a blogging package, but it is now a full CMS that is used around the world for creating both blogs and corporate websites. Over 25 million people have chosen WordPress to power their website or blog. Most notable users of WordPress include the likes of CNN, The New York Times, Katy Perry, The Ford Story, Michigan State University, MTV Newsroom, Mashable, and WSJ Magazine. You can learn more about WordPress at www.wordpress.org.
Absolutely. There are sample testimonials on our website for review. References can be provided prior to signing contracts. As a courtesy to existing clients and to limit unnecessary phone calls, references are not provided until we are the chosen website designer.
Every website our website company designs is laid out and looks completely different than any of other websites. Without actually designing your site we can’t tell you exactly what it will look like, but we can determine what it will feature. We work with you to determine what you like and don’t like in designs and use your feedback in our design concepts. Once your design is created, our website design company will work with you to determine if anything needs to be changed and will make as many changes as necessary to get your design perfect!
There are some small changes that can be made to some pre-existing websites to get you a better ranking. You might see small changes in your search engine ranking with SEO changes made. However, the best possible website ranking is always seen with a website that is designed and planned to be search engine optimized.
All websites that SpikewayTechnologies created must live in our servers. However, if at any time you wish to move to a new web firm + web host, we will package up your site at no cost to send to the new firm. Though at that time, we will no longer be able to support your site.
Yes and at no cost! You 100% own everything that Spikeway Technologies creates for you and if requested we will provide a one-time full backup of your website.
Unfortunately we do not offer refunds on our web hosting
WordPress runs best on a Linux server with PHP 5 capabilities. Most hosting
companies will easily support these requirements. If you have any concern on your hosting company’s support options, we are happy to investigate your existing hosting package and provide assistance with new hosting if needed.
Spikeway Technologies backs up all of our client’s websites daily, weekly and monthly on rotation to a 3rd party secure server out of the location of our web server.
We are often asked this question on different stages of design process as well as when we present various concepts. And the answer is that we DON’T provide any service of coding and development.
The answer to this question is based on the audience you want to cover for your website. Would you like your users to use your site from any device and feel it positive, useful and convenient anyway? Sure, every customer would be aware of growing popularity of mobile devices. And in this case we should answer with confidence: yes, you obviously need responsive web design for your site. The idea behind responsive web design (RWD) is that the content and layout of a website should efficiently adapt according to the sizes and technical abilities of a device it is opened at.Nowadays making the site non-mobile-friendly means to lose the part of audience which likes surfing and using the internet sources “on the go”. It’s vital to consider that this part of the audience is mainly the most active part, non-afraid of technologies, fast in browsing necessary information and options, easy-going in making internet purchases and try new products. That’s why neglecting the idea of RWD can bring real loss to the product which otherwise could be highly efficient and bring high conversion rates.Creating responsive web-design for a web-product means making it pleasant-looking, clear and functional in different sizing with optimal navigation that provides high level of usability.
This question is one of the top. The further the customer stands from the sphere of design, the more he or she will be inclined to ask this question. There are also some variations such as: “Why should I pay for UX?”, “Why should we waste time on UX?” and the like.The UX stage is about how the website or application works while UI is how it looks. Both these stages include work on successful interactions, but UX deals more with logic, connections and user behaviour while UI stage provides visual representation of all the concept. It means that ideally designer should first work on UX part with concentration on layout, making it more powerful, thought-out, clear and easy to use. Without this vital work you highly risk creating pure mess out of the user interface.
A quick conversation will enable our team to find the best possible solution,the functionality and platforms required, any goals to monetize the app, and other factors determining the overall scope of the project. In turn, we can provide a highly customizable plan fitting almost any budget. Contact us to speak with a Spikeway representative and receive a quote fitting your exact needs.
Our native apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices cache content upon the initial download and installation process, meaning the bulk of your application’s data is saved and ready for offline use. Content such as Twitter and RSS feeds will need an internet connection to receive the latest updates, but core content can be made accessible regardless of an internet connection.
Spikeway handles 100% of the technical work, including developing the app and submitting the finished product to the AppStore and Google Play. We also provide complete assistance in determining the content and graphic requirements for the app. A specialist will walk each client through the entire process and be available for any questions or concerns from the moment the development process begins through the life of the app.
Spikeway offers a graphics service and works closely with clients who choose this option to determine the color scheme, graphics, and even smaller details such as app icons. We use logos and other supplied branding to ensure the app is entirely branded for your organization or company.
We provide a full set of download statistics and app analytics to every client. The number of downloads can be charted over time, as well as by device and platform. Analytics range from time spent in the app and total number of page views to details such as the number of views for specific content in the app, all of which can be used by our clients to improve content.
The Spikeway framework enables our development team to build high-quality apps in a short time frame without sacrificing quality. From receiving the content to making the app available in the AppStore and Google Play for users to download, the development timeline is a seamless process taking as little as one month. While mobile apps requiring a significant amount of content or custom programming may take additional time, a Spikeway specialist will be able to present a customized timeline for your specific project to ensure expectations are met and the finished product is available when needed.
Spikeway provides both mobile apps and mobile websites as a complete mobile app solutions provider. While a mobile website is important to ensure all attendees have access regardless of device, our focus on native apps for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices is a reflection of the significant benefits a mobile app offers over its mobile website counterpart. Mobile apps are more reliable and engaging, with the ability to access content offline and take advantage of features unavailable on a mobile website.
In a few words: total control! Spikeway works with clients at the onset of the development process to establish a navigation structure, or hierarchy of content, to determine tabs in the app and generally how everything fits together.
A dedicated Support Specialist is assigned to each client. He or she, through sustained interaction with a client from the moment a contract is assigned through the event and beyond, gets to know the event planners tasked with readying the app, any requirements and long-term goals of the app, and most importantly the app content itself. The Support Specialist serves to explain the entire development process, ensure milestones are met, and generally be the go-to contact for anything app-related. Extremely technical issues or concerns are quickly escalated to a developer, resolved, and communicated back to the client, ensuring a seamless line of communication.
