As a pastor of a local church who believes and encourages outreach and community, sometimes it's hard to find a partner who can provide the marketing materials needed to get our message out. GLBAL media not only brings a new attitude to marketing but they also have a unique way of capturing what we need and they go above and beyond to make our products stand out in the crowd. Thank you GLBAL media for going above and beyond what we could ask or imagine!

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The “O” has been intentionally removed to symbolize our mentality of bringing the world together. As designers we like to remove the clutter and minimize as much as possible to get straight to the point. 

We work closely with each client to setup realistic deadlines, while also working to finish jobs in a timely manner. Most websites will take about a month from start to finish. Following acceptance of the proposal, the specific dates will be sent to you. 

The internet is continually adapting and in order to provide the best possible service for your customers, we’ve found that an ongoing relationship is required to hopefully avoid any issues while using your website.

Once the initial design is complete you will be sent a link with a login and password to view your newly designed website. Only those with access to the login and password are able to view the website at this point. This is a critical step in ensuring you are happy with the functionality and overall design of the website. During this time you may submit changes that you would like to see to the design.

Your website needs to be hosted by a hosting company that specializes in WordPress hosting. There are many companies that do this, but I recommend Siteground. Talk to us about hosting your website at a discounted rate.

WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers around 25% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customizable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. Your website may be built from a predesigned framework which allows me to keep design costs lower and deliver a high quality product. Furthermore the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap into this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.

We will be your first point of contact should something go wrong with your website. Our team will determine whether it is something the hosting company needs to fix or something that is covered by your website care plan.

Once your website is launched, we provide 30 days of support to ensure that you are confident using your new website. After the initial 30 days, any support and updates will be based on the maintenance package you select.

The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that we will implement to improve your visibility.

If you subscribe to the PRO SEO plan, we will install Google analytics software on your new website where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views, and the amount of time people are spending on your website.

Our team is flexible and responsive, so we understand change happens. Changes that fall outside of the original proposal and objectives may incur additional fees and impact the deadline of the final product.
