Frequently Asked Questions
Below, you’ll find some of the answers to some of the most common questions we receive.
Sharp Guys’ specializes in providing lead generating B2B websites for industrial, manufacturing, and software companies. We also have had the fine fortune of working with some of the best nonprofits around! Regardless of niche, we work with companies from California to Rhode Island. We find the clients we are the best fit for are looking for:
- A web design that sets them apart from their competition both visually and functionally.
- A website that helps them drive traffic, engage visitors, get leads and ultimately drives revenue. We are incredibly focused on setting up Analytics and a great foundation for SEO.
- A relationship with a company that doesn’t outsource web design and is always willing to go above and beyond for clients, even if it is years after we designed their initial website.
We also want all of our clients to have the ability to take their ball and go home. We detest hearing of developers that ‘lock’ a client into their system and never let go. Often you’ll see these web design companies create a website on the cheap for a client only to mandate that the company they made it for has to pay them forever. Not with Sharp Guys’ websites. 100% of all of the websites we build for clients are owned 100% by our clients. While we do offer ongoing maintenance and support, we train 100% of our new website clients using custom built screen capture videos on how to make updates to each and every aspect of their website. These custom training videos created on the newly designed client website seem to be a favorite with nearly all of our clients.
We love having clients start making changes to their websites as soon as we are done – a website that doesn’t change is basically dead to Google and even worse, visitors.
We get this question a lot, so we created a full page to answer it properly but we will still provide a basic summary here as well. Here in Indianapolis, we find our web design costs are pretty on par with most of the other designers you’ll find. But we have to be honest – we are offering a premium service. According to Google, we have the best (and most) reviews of any web designer in the area. We never outsource our work (all of our web designers are highly skilled, based in the Indianapolis area, and have years of experience), so it is likely we’re on the low side based on what the market will bear.
So how much do we charge for a website? That depends on the size and complexity of the project. A simple business website might start at around $7,000 (nonprofits always receive a 10% discount), while a larger or more complex site could cost $25,000 or more. Of course, every project is different – we created a resource of some of the questions we ask to get a better feel for how we may be able to serve our clients. Speaking of serving our clients, we feel our web design process really helps set us apart from other folks in the market. You can read all about it here.
Each and every single client website we build has a entirely custom created training video that was built using the new website. On this custom training video, we’ll take you through how to make changes to every aspect of your new web design. That way as new website users come onboard at your company, you’ll have an easy place for them to start. Over the 200+ website projects we’ve done, this is one thing we hear a ton of good things about – people love it!
For those interested, we do offer ongoing WordPress maintenance and support. It is not required nor expected and many of our clients handle their websites entirely on their own only occasionally reaching out.
Typically 2-3 months on standard projects but it could be a bit quicker or slower. Typically it depends on the level of communication we get from our client. We also do not outsource website design work so you’ll be working with the same designers you spoke with throughout all steps of the process.
We build all new client website with lead generation in mind. We also provide a limited number of clients digital marketing (SEO/PPC assistance). Our clients have seen a measurable 10-20x ROI on their investment – in some cases, this is several hundred thousand dollars in the first couple years.
Yes, upon request – however, it is completely optional and many of our clients use the hosting companies they are comfortable with. However, we recommend SiteGround. They provide very fast hosting, a free SSL license, automatic daily backups that can be restored in mere minutes, and many other awesome features. Many of our clients have used it for over a year or more and we have had correspondence on many occasions with their support team. Compared with many of their competitors, they are heads above the rest.
Unfortunately no. Sharp Guys’ is not a good fit for everyone. We work best with organizations that are ready for change, ready to look like the market leaders they are or aspire to be, and want a website that will help them drive leads and ultimately revenue. We often aren’t a good fit for companies that are simply looking for a ‘brochure’ website. We find marketers love working with us. Maybe it’s because when the website is all done, they can create content and manage their website easily without being forced to pay when they want to make an update (like they often had to with their previous web developer). With the drag and drop page building editor all of our designs have and robust number of settings we build into every custom website, they have the power to implement any marketing campaign they can dream up.
We do not have an hourly fee unless you are an ongoing maintenance and support client. All web design projects are priced with a fixed fee and all projects are all outlined entirely before we move ahead. No surprises and no ambiguous hourly fees is our goal.
Potentially. We would love to hear more about your goals. Please reach out using the form at the bottom of the page.
Instead of talking your ear off about how awesome we are (we’d be happy to if we didn’t think it would be insufferable), please read our recent clients reviews. Feel free to reach out to any of our clients – in the 10+ years Sharp Guys has been around, we have had extremely few bad experiences. We are fortunate to still work with many of the same clients from those early years.
