When we meet with you it would be good to be able to see what promotional material you already have for your business or organization. If there is someone within your group who is involved with your marketing, or has previous experience with building and maintaining a website, it would be ideal to be able to meet with that person at the same time.
Someone in your organization will need to be involved with the project as the point person to help get things approved at your end... such as colour schemes, wording and what pictures you would like to use.
Webbit is located in Hamilton, Ontario. While the majority of our clients are in the Greater Toronto-Hamilton area, within about 2 hours drive of Hamilton, we have clients in New Brunswick and Alberta. We are able to do a lot of support over the phone and also using Skype's Screen Share feature which allows us to share our computer screen with you so that you can see what we are doing. Our Content Managment System (CMS) was written with remote technical support in mind.
You are never too old or too young use learn how to update your own website and social media if you are willing to give it a fair try. The age range of our users has been as low as 10 years old with several users who are in their 80's.
Most jobs are taken on for a fixed price base on agreed upon specifications. Occasionally where what is needed is hard to nail down to a list of requrements where we can estimate the time required to complete them. In those cases, we would bill hourly against an agreed upon budget so that there are no surprises.
After a major move of 20 websites in January 2019, all of our websites are now hosted in Canada at HostPapa. This means that we are operating under Canadian Copyright and Privacy Laws instead of trying to comply with both Canadian and US Law, which are not always the same. HostPapa offers excellent 7x24 telephone support as well as live support with an agent through a chat box. I have dealt with them for about 10 years and I have found their service to be excellent.
Pricing for Hosting is in Canadian Dollars so we do not need to worry about big swings in costs due to the value of the Canadian Dollar.
Most of our domain names are registered in the US through GoDaddy. For those who wish to have domain names hosted in Canada, we have a Canadian hosting provider. We do NOT recommend hosting your domain name with your website hosting provider as a basic sound business practice of keeping those services separate.
