Can I have a site that looks like this?
Actually, making it look like anything you want is not much of a factor. We'll start with your initial direction and then work with you to refine it.
I see a lot of your websites are flash based? My website targets a serious and mature audience. Can you make clean HTML and non flash corporate websites?
Sure, in fact we design very good professional websites, we have experience in working with clients from different fields and we understand their different taste. Our portfolio is just a partial list of our clients.
What is your typical turn around period?
Due to the high level of custom work and the collaborative process involved in each website we build, it's difficult to predict an exact turnaround time. We will work together with you to complete the Web Design Project in a timely manner. We agree to work expeditiously to complete the Web Design, but delays can occur if any milestone that requires your action, such as approving design mockups or web design changes. As an example, a 5 page website can be finished anywhere between 1-6 weeks after we've received all content and feedback from you. It's a safe estimate to expect at least a month for your project, though it could be much quicker or slower, depending on your input and design. Ask your sales agent or project manager for more information.
Can I use my existing website address if I host with you?
Yes, we can help you retain your old domain name on our servers or register a new one for you.
After you have designed our website, can we manage it ourselves easily?
Absolutely! You'll have several options for managing your site after it's completed. When we're done constructing your new website, you will own it and have full access to it. You will be able to make any changes to the site if you have any web editing knowledge. You can also opt for an editable website package, this way you can inform us to make changes to any non-Flash content on your site. Any time you want an update it will be completed within 12 business hours at no additional charge (for retainer customers only). Just make sure you let us know you would like this option before you sign up. If you do not purchase a retainer contract, these updates or changes can be made at a standard hourly rate.
I live in New York, you are in Florida, how can we work with you? Should I not look for a local Company?

Everything that you need to inspect is put up on the web as it's worked on, and materials and communications move easily by calling, Emails, Faxes, and Instant Messenger on a routine basis.
