Why would I need a Custom Form and what is a field?
Website forms enable you to capture valuable information from your prospects, it could be an enquiry form, survey or sign-up form.
We use Gravity Forms for all website forms. Gravity Forms is arguably one of the best premium WordPress form plugins available and can be extended to more complex forms that can have conditional questions or even accept payments.
A form field is simply one of the data inputs, so for example in a contact form, where you enter your name or email is a field.
Will my website show up in Search Engines?
To be completely honest with you, No. It is not likely, at least initially.
If you select Yoast and Google Search Console Installation in your package then we can submit your site-map to Google which will help.
Depending on your industry you will really need an SEO and Content Marketing Strategy to ensure you are ranking near the top of search results. It really comes down to what your competitors are doing.
Is Speed really that Important?
Yes. Speed is a critical factor in your users experience and as such plays a huge factor in SEO, Paid Search and Paid Social.
If your website has a slow load time, people will ‘bounce’ (most likely to your competitor) and not stick around waiting for your page to load.
Website users tend to have the attention span of a Goldfish, so if the page hasn’t loaded in 3 seconds, they’re gone.
What is Yoast and why do I need it?
Yoast is one of the most popular SEO plugins for WordPress. Yoast helps you cross the T’s and dot the i’s and ensure that your content is optimised for your selected keyword in search engines.
Yoast comes in 2 options, Free and Paid.
Why are we charging for a Free Plugin?
We are charging for the time it takes to install and configure it correctly.
What is the difference between the Free and Paid version?
The free version of Yoast SEO will suit 95% of businesses, it provides everything you need.
Yoast SEO Premium gives you features like smart suggestions for links, target multiple keywords with each post, social media previews, 1 year support, the ability to easily redirect old URLs to new one. With Yoast Free you can optimise your content for a single keyword.
What is a Plugin?
A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.
They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress website.
What is an SSL Certificate and do I need one?
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private.
We provide a free Let’s Encrypt SSL.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. It is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
This is perfect for most websites, however for an Ecommerce website we recommend a paid SSL for extra security.
Will your Legal Documents cover me?
We can’t guarantee that they will cover everything you need them to. The The only way to be certain is to have your lawyer review them and add in any additional information pertinent to your business.
What is you refund policy?
If for some reason you are unhappy at any stage please let us know immediately, if we cannot rectify the situation we will refund your payment minus any costs incurred.
