We have provided a few of the most common questions asked
of our staff. The answer to these questions may prove beneficial
in choosing your web design team.
Many businesses look for the cheapest way to get online.
Although cost does play a factor, most often than not a business
gets what it pays for in a web site. Many businesses claim
to have a computer expert on the premises that can build the
site in-house. This may be so but developing a successful
web site takes more than simple HTML and some graphics. A
successful web site is a big part of the overall marketing
strategy of a business. A web site is successful by focusing
on the business target market, integrating existing marketing
strategies into a uniform campaign, effective user navigation
and a host of other technical and design issues.
Professional developers can give you:
- Design knowledge
- Graphic design skills
- Technical skills
- Advanced interaction
- Knowledge in what does and does not work
- Marketing know-how
- Dynamic content
- Experience how the web works effectively
Letting a professional design and development team such as
Grizzly Web Designers build and maintain your business web
site gives your business an advantage over those businesses
who do not hire a professional. Knowing the Web, how it works,
and how to communicate effectively using the Web will make
your Web strategy successful.

us by e-mail or telephone 403-304-7690.
Whatever your business requires, count on the team
at Grizzly Web Designers to have the skill, know-how,
and ability to cover all your web site needs.
Finding a reasonable price for your web site is a challenge
in itself. We believe that prices should be related to costs,
value and work involved…not invented. So what does a
web site cost? Well this all depends on whether you want a
Volkswagen or a Lexus and the choice of options you require.
Web sites are no different in the multitude of styles and
options. Depending upon your marketing budget, you can have
a basic presence on the Web or you can have a fully functional
database driven eCommerce site.
Before you decide what type of web site you need for your
business we really need to sit down with you or discuss
your project over the telephone so we can accurately assess
your web site needs and functionality required. Our project
manager would be pleased to discuss your web site needs
so please call 403-304-7690 or use our contact

on the design, developing and marketing of your business
web site. To start the process, just give us a call at 403-304-7690

- Define Scope And Objectives
We need to determine, through our meeting with you and your
staff, the scope and objectives of the project. Defining
what you your web site needs to accomplish, what kind of
impression you want to portray and what technologies might
be required to accomplish the established objectives. Depending
upon the scope of your web site we then create a site map
highlighting proposed structure and site navigation.
We then create a proposal detailing exactly what your project
entails, the cost of developing your project, who the contacts
will be, turnaround times and deliverables.
We will conduct a competitive analysis to see if the competition
is online and if so, we will use our expertise to do an
in-depth inventory analysis of their web site's strengths
and weaknesses. From that research, we will build your site
based on the competition's weaknesses using creative techniques
that will appeal to your target audience and encourage them
to visit your site again. Using the competition's weaknesses
as your strengths, we will keep your site on the cutting
- Design Process
With the web site structure being finalized, the creative
design process begins. After an initial design discussion,
we prepare design concepts for your review, discussion and
selection. The designers work closely with you and your
staff to ensure complete satisfaction with the design concepts.
If revisions are required the concepts are then re-worked
to your satisfaction and the general look and feel of the
site is established.
The content is then decided upon with a focus on marketing
your products and services. Photos and imagery are then
discussed, created and finalized. If we are writing the
content we will outline the content requirements. Our copywriter
will work with your staff to collect the information and
details we will need. Your text will be prepared for your
review and acceptance.
The actual development of the web site has begun and you
will be able to view the progress of the site online in
a special client’s web site directory. You will have
an opportunity to review the site page by page. Once the
project meets with your approval the pages are uploaded
to your web directory, the marketing strategies begin.
- Site Promotion
All of the web sites we design receive free web site submission
to the major search engines. But this does not guarantee
a high ranking. This depends upon the search engine placement
- Ongoing Support
Once essential marketing and promotion is underway for your
web site we are still here to provide you with ongoing support
for your web site. We are always available to perform a
simple text edit or add a complex e-commerce system to assist
our clients. We are only a phone call away.
If you have any questions about our design and development
process we would be glad to answer those questions for
you. So please call us today 403-304-7690
or e-mail us to chat about your
new design project or about updating your current web site
or the marketing of your web site.
Yes. There is little point in placing your web site on the
web and then forgetting about the site. If your site never
changes, there is really no reason why someone should come
back. You need to keep your site updated to attract potential
clients back by adding new material, new features, new resources
and new information. By continually revising your web strategies
visitors are more likely to become clients or customers and
they are more likely to recommend your site to others.
There are no hard and fast rules on how often you should
update the information on your web site. Constant experimentation
is the only way to determine what is necessary. Whether you
update your site on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis,
the amount of updates you propose, will be ultimately dependent
upon your business objectives, your budget and the success
of your web site.
You need to determine some guidelines that you will use to
measure the success of your web site such as the number of
customers you serve, number of pages viewed, which pages are
viewed the most and the number of sales generated through
your site. Then analyze your findings as to which approach
brings the most orders, what strategies are working, improve
upon them and drop the ones that are not working. You won’t
know what works until you try them so plan on continuous,
incremental improvements until you achieve the results you
Depending upon your needs we can provide you with a written
proposal on your updates or we can provide you with our hourly
rates for our services depending again, upon your needs.
Enlist our team, utilize your plan and let’s give
it a go. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. So drop
us a line so we can establish
a meeting to discuss your plans. We’d be delighted
to hear from you.
Our web design team is well aware of today’s fast-paced
business processes. Your web site design time frame will be
determined by 5 factors; the size of your web site, the amount
of graphics and complexity of your site design, functionality,
and our current client design schedule.
The bottom line is how quickly and also on how 'finished'
your material is when you send it to us. In other words, firm
written ideas put on paper translates immediately into Web
ready content and design for online publication. When you

we will give you an estimated completion date before we begin
