Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
At Keith Dream, I have been building web experiences since 1997. Over the years, I’ve helped many people go from no online presence to enjoying healthy web based businesses. I’ve been asked a lot of questions along the way and decided to put the most frequently asked questions here for you in this FAQ section.
I’m new to websites and online stuff, how does it work?
Don’t worry, we have a process to guide you through every step of the way.
How much does a website cost?
Just like a house or a car, a website is an investment and the amount a website costs varies depending on all the factors and details you want to put into it. You also tend to get what you pay for. For a basic business website, our projects will generally start out at about $4,000 and vary upward depending on the specific needs of the business.
How long does it take to design and launch a website?
The time to build a website from inception to launch varies upon the size, unique specifications and preparedness. In general the whole process will usually take 4 to 8 weeks to get it done right.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, you will need a domain name like www.yourcompany.com and a hosting server to house your website on. We provide hosting and have a seamless process to get your website up and running on fast, secure servers. If you already have name, that’s great! Your hosting service is very important to your website’s success, so if you already have a server, we’ll evaluate it for you and offer our advice.

Web hosting is the whole service of putting your website files and software on a server in one or more data centers around the world so anyone with a computer can see your website.

A Content Management System (CMS) is tool with a an easy to use interface that allows you maintain and update your website yourself. You don’t need to any coding skills or technical background. Our CMS of choice is WordPress, which is so easy to use, it powers over 34% of the internet. You can edit and add pages, blog posts, images, videos, products right from within the dashboard that is already installed on your website.

We can help you with almost everything related to the success of your website. If we don’t have the specific skills that you need, we have resources to refer you to for just about anything.
What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Also referred to as SEO, search engine optimization is what we call the process of getting your website to show up as high as possible when people perform searches in search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.
The higher your site shows up in results, the more traffic you’re likely to get, increasing your potential customers.
The biggest key here is to have well written copy (text wording) that is interesting to the people you want to attract.
Do you provide the content for my site?
We don’t write the copy (wording) for your site, as you know your business best. That said, we can hook you up with a great copywriter to produce the professional image you want to convey.
We can also help with graphic design, which will be either built into the project scope or billed hourly.
Can you design my logo?
Yes we can. We can also introduce you to some great designers for all your branding needs.
