Questions are good.

Why do I need a website?

A website is like your online storefront, open 24/7 to the world. It’s essential for showcasing your brand, products or services, reaching out to a broader audience, and building credibility in your industry. Whether you’re a small business, a freelancer, or a large corporation, a website can help you connect with customers, enhance your brand’s visibility, and drive growth.

Should I build a website from the ground up or use a CMS?

Deciding between building a website from scratch or using a Content Management System (CMS) depends on your specific needs. Building from the ground up gives you complete control and customisation but requires more time and technical skills. Using a CMS like WordPress or Joomla makes the process easier and quicker, especially if you want to manage content regularly and need a flexible, user-friendly platform. Consider your project’s complexity, budget, and long-term maintenance when making your choice.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a popular Content Management System (CMS) used to create and manage websites. It’s known for its simplicity, flexibility, and a vast library of themes and plugins that allow for extensive customisation. Whether you’re setting up a blog, a business website, or an online store, WordPress offers tools that make web design and content management accessible to everyone, not just developers.

What is Strapi?

Strapi is an open-source, headless CMS. It’s designed to give developers the freedom to create customisable APIs in minutes and manage content easily through a customisable admin panel. Unlike traditional CMSs, Strapi provides more flexibility by separating the back-end from the front-end, which means you can use it to manage content for mobile apps, websites, or other platforms, all from one place.

How will my website be secured?

Securing your website is crucial to protect against threats and data breaches. At Black Sails, we implement multiple layers of security, including SSL certificates to encrypt data, secure hosting environments, regular software updates, and robust firewalls. We also follow best practices for coding and data storage to ensure your website remains safe and trustworthy for your users.

What is on-page SEO or technical SEO?

On-page SEO involves optimising individual web pages to rank higher in search engines and earn more relevant traffic. This includes using the right keywords, creating quality content, optimising your headlines and images, and improving your site’s loading speed. Technical SEO, on the other hand, focuses on the technical aspects of your website such as site structure, mobile-friendliness, indexing, and crawlability. Both are crucial for improving your site’s visibility and performance in search engine results.

How long does it take to build a website?

The time it takes to build a website can vary widely based on several factors. It depends on the complexity of the site, the number of pages, custom features, and the level of customisation required. A simple website might be quick to set up, while a more complex site with custom applications and integrations will take longer. The development process also involves stages like planning, design, content creation, and testing, all of which contribute to the timeline. Collaborative communication between the client and the development team is crucial to keep the project on track and meet deadlines effectively.

How much does a website cost?

The cost of a website is influenced by various factors, making it difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all answer. Key considerations include the type of website (e-commerce, informational, etc.), design complexity, custom features, functionality requirements, and the content management system used. Additional costs can arise from services like SEO optimisation, content creation, hosting, and maintenance. It’s important to discuss your specific needs and expectations with your web development provider to get an accurate estimate that reflects the scope and scale of your project.
