Creating and Maintaining a Website: Questions and Answers

It is important to me to explain technical terms in a way that you can understand easily. I will try to understand your wishes, think ahead, and implement them sustainably.

What are the benefits of a custom-made website?

There are digital construction kits and content management systems, and some people rely entirely on social media. This may work well at first, especially in the start-up phase. Still, the limits of such solutions are usually quickly reached: third-party vendor dependency, missing customization options, or rising costs as soon as your requirements exceed the minimum. Having your own website gives you control over how you want to present your business online and who you want to work with.

When creating a custom website, we can still use standard elements and modular systems, but we will customize them to fit your needs. This allows us to save costs and enables you to do many things yourself. In this case, WordPress would be a popular option.

How can a long-lasting concept reduce your running costs?

If you have a vision or a clear idea of what you want to achieve with your website in the long term, we can prepare it right from the start. Choosing suitable technologies, setting up a structured software architecture, technical documentation and automated testing contribute to the goal of making websites and web apps last longer and become easier to extend. As a customer, you benefit from lower maintenance costs, optimized performance and successful customer communication.

How can we combine environmental protection, economic efficiency and social sustainability?

A digital sustainability strategy includes privacy protection, accessibility and eco-friendliness. Accessibility and device compatibility can open up new customer groups for you. Energy efficiency and short loading times can help increase turnover and reduce operating costs. Specifically, we pay attention to suitable technology from the start and review critical aspects like image file formats and their amount of data or the server's performance and availability. Ecologically and socially sensible decisions can often also save costs and help promote ecologically committed customers' loyalty to your brand.

What's the difference between websites and web pages?

The site hosts the foundation and framework of your internet presence. We can create websites that are easy to add new web pages and edit their content. You can also delegate this task to others and they don’t even have to be professional web developers. It might be your social media manager. So, you don't need to have any "pages programmed" when we have prepared a suitable foundation.

Do you need a web developer on-site?

That´s completely up to you! I have developed and reworked many websites without meeting their owners in real life. Thanks to video conferencing, email and digital data exchange, we can do everything online, no matter where you are!

On the other hand, working together on-site can be helpful and pleasant, be it in your office, in a coworking space or with a coffee in the cafe. As a web developer in Berlin originally from the Rhine area (Cologne/Düsseldorf), I can also come to another city to participate in a meeting.

How does the creation of your new website work?

We will always start with a non-committal preliminary discussion to clarify your needs and expectations, if there is existing material we can use, and if we need to find professional partners to work with. If necessary, I can get you in touch with experts in graphic design, copywriting and search engine optimization.

Once the requirements have been clarified well enough, I will try to estimate how long it will take me, what it will cost and when I will have time to do it. I will create an offer or cost estimate, usually with a range "from ... to" and the hourly or daily rate we agreed on.

I often provide a preview version of the website under construction so that you can see intermediate results and we can be sure to pursue a common goal.

What does it cost to create a website?

The costs depend on the scope of the order and the nature and complexity of the requirements. My current default hourly rate is in the "pricing" section of my homepage. Non-profit organisations and ethical start-ups can request discounts. Individual price agreements are also possible for long-term cooperation and invoicing according to daily rates. I would be happy to create a precise offer or a cost estimate.
