Website and App Development Common Questions

What do your websites and apps cost?

The short answer: Our prices depend on so many factors, it’s impossible to say in one sentence. Avoid any web developer who can answer this question without a long talk. The long answer: To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call or send us an email. We’ll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we’ll be able to give you a ballpark figure. If you’re still interested, we’ll come up with a firm quote. If you talk to a web developer who gives you an instant quote, run away! Imagine telling someone you want a car and having them immediately giving you a price for that car. Any fair and honest car salesperson would want to know the make, model and engine type of the car you’re looking to purchase, right? The same goes for building web sites. Depending on the features you want for your web site, the cost can be anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few million.

Another company says they can build a website for us for $xxx. Why shouldn’t we use them?

We’ve seen those ads on the side of the road, too. Be wary of anyone who says they’ll build you a web site or sell you a car for $xxx. There’s a possibility they’ll take your money and run. What’s more likely is that they’ll take your money and then build your site with a template. They may have a lot of templates to choose from, but they’ll all be rather generic. They’ll ask you for five pages of text and then slap it into a template and that’s it. You can’t have custom graphic design; you can’t have any interactivity; your site won’t be optimized for search engines and it will look like a $xxx site. Remember, a consultation with Rovetek is always free and we just might be able to prevent you from wasting a thousand bucks.

How long does it take to build a website?

Again, this depends largely on the type of project and how complex it is. Just send us an email and we will schedule a phone conversation to answer all your questions.

Can you help me write content for my website or app?

Yes. We include copy writing and editing in all of our proposals. We also build your sitemap and help structure the foundation of your website in the planning stages.

Can you help me source photos for my website?

Yes. We can help you source stock photos from sites such as www.istock.com and www.unsplash.com.

Do I own my website?

YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.

Will I find my website on the search engines?

Yes. We always design websites to be search-engine friendly but cannot guarantee that you will be at the top of the search engines for your preferred keywords. If any agency gives you a guarantee run fast, they will most likely take your money and never do a single thing to get you at the top of the search engines, nobody can guarantee results period.

How can I accept credit cards on my website?

Due to regulations accepting cards online for the cannabis industry is very restricted but we are happy to say that we can help, we work directly with The Vault which at this point is the only american company authorized to accept payments online on your behalf.

I already have a website and it needs updating. Can you help me?

Yes. We are happy to look at your existing site and give you a quote for updating it based on your requirements.

Are there hidden costs with Web design services?

No. We discuss your website requirements and price accordingly. Once you have placed your order with us, we will adhere to our quoted price.
