How do I get a website / domain
R.J.M. & Associates will work with you to find an available domain
name that most represents your business and we will purchase and
maintain all records of this domain for you. We register all domains
with Network Solutions. We use Network Solutions to assure the
utmost in security and professionalism.
Who decides what graphics and colors
to use on the website?
This is strictly up to the client. We will assist in this endeavor
if the client wants, we will take
care of the entire process.
As the client, what do I have to
provide R.J.M. & Associates for the website?
We will meet with you to determine the content of your website.
these meetings you will be
responsible to supply us with the appropriate text
needed for the website, logo artwork, photos and any other art work
necessary for completion of the website. We do have the
capability of providing you with digital photography as well as logo
design by graphic artists we utilize. We would be pleased to quote
you for these services as well.
|How long will it take to complete my
- Depending on the content and requirements of the
website, work can be completed in a couple of weeks and up to
several weeks for a complex website. As part of our quote, we
will quote you exact production times. As we build your website,
we will publish it on a hidden website that we maintain, so you
may watch our progress and also provide input as we progress.
Once completed, you will be required to view this "hidden"
website and approve it. Only after your approval will the
website be published to your domain name.
|What are your payment terms?
- Our normal payment terms are 50% down payment to
start the website and the balance due upon completion of the
website. Our terms are Net 10 days. For larger, more complex
websites, that tend to be more expensive we can work with you to
setup a payment plan over a period of one year. I am sorry, but
we do not accept credit card payments.
|May I contact the principals of your
- Absolutely! As a matter of fact we insist on it. We
recommend that you contact the persons listed in that website's
contact page as they are usually the persons we worked with to
develop their website. A majority of our work is generated from
referrals of existing clients. We also have numerous
testimonials on file that may be viewed at any time.
|After the website is completed, how
long will it be before my website appears on the search engines?
- Once the website is completed, we will use the
latest state of the art software and methods to load your
website. Depending on the search engine, indexing can take from
two days to several weeks. We submit your website approximately
every 45 days on a continuous basis. We do however advise all of
our clients that there are absolutely "no guarantees" in respect
to indexing and positioning on a search engine! If anyone
"guarantees you "Top Ten" positions on all search engines, grab
your wallet and run away as fast as possible. The search engines
make absolutely no guarantees, unless you are paying that search
engine for positioning and those types of search engines are a
minority of the engines and can become very expensive!
|What if I want to add to the website
- As our client, we consider ourselves a member of
your team! In the quote we provide you our costs for work to be
performed after the website is published and running on the
Internet. Also, this type of work takes precedence over new
websites being developed.
|After the website is completed, will
we be able to contact you?
- This is the most often asked question from
prospective clients. Once you become a client of R.J.M. &
Associates, you will have our business and home phone numbers as
we are available to you 24/7! Yes, even if we are on vacation.
Remember, we are here for "YOU - THE CUSTOMER!"
