Website & Sales Funnel Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have questions about our website and sales funnel package? Check these Frequently Asked Questions to learn all the details about our builds. If you still have questions we haven’t answered, reach out to us and we can go into further details.
What happens after the first year?
We have a rule that all websites go live within four months from the time the build begins. It can be one month or two month and will be definitely four months regardless of where we are with the build.
What this means is that if a website has begun to be built January 1st, on May 1st the website will go live regardless of whether all the pages, posts, and products are in place. The pages, posts, and products which are not complete will be placed into draft until the content is received and be completed within our monthly optimization program, making it possible for the website to go live and be presentable to visitors.
At Interlace Communications, we make every effort to adhere to deadlines. Sometimes, for whatever reason, we are unable to obtain the content needed to complete the site within a timely fashion. When this happens, it becomes necessary for us to proactively help you begin to be found on the cyberspace and place the site into monthly optimization (MO). The changes which need to be made to the pages in draft become part of MO and additional costs are incurred. In other words, they are no longer part of the build of your website.
Monthly Optimization, or MO for short, is a monthly system we provide where we manually conduct searches of keyword phrases for your website to find out how you are performing with organic reach. A report is sent to you each month showing where you are lacking in traffic on the first page of Google. Along with the search (which is just one part of MO), we physically go into the Administrative end of your site and update CORE components, themes, and plugins. From time to time you might have some simple changes to the site and not have the time to do them, MO is the time when we can make those changes for you.
This is an example of the manual searching we do with your Monthly Optimization time. We create a list of keywords based on your current services and locations and put them in Google to see where they are found. Ideally you want to be on the first page, but anything after the third page will likely never be seen by people browsing.
The keywords that cannot be found on the first three pages are in red as that’s something that needs worked on via blogs, revising wording on the website, or other work.
Keywords with a page number and a white background are on either the second or third page. This means there is progress in improving SEO and/or the words aren’t in bad shape.
What we try to get you is keywords with a green background. The green background with the number means your website is on the first page of Google results for that phrase. Our goal is to get you to green on every keyword and keep you in green.
As we build your website it is not visible to the search engines for a reason. We don’t want to confuse the heck out of the search engines. When you’ve approved the website and it’s ready to go live, that is when our work begins. We go through a process where we register your website to the major search engines, set up your Google Analytics accoun
t as well as your Google My Business account and the Search Console that connects to it. There is some techy, geeky stuff that happens and there are some activities for this that will involve you.
We appreciate DIY clients who like to make simple changes to their sites and leave the tough projects and SEO to us. We have a series of training videos from start to ecommerce, which we provide access to following the website build. Clients have the limit of a month to view them for two reasons.
- We have found that people procrastinate on watching the videos. By limiting the time to watch the videos we provide a value to making it a requirement.
- We are in an ever changing online world and change our videos accordingly. If we didn’t have a time limit to watch them, you would be viewing new material that doesn’t match your website’s infrastructure at the time of the build.
That’s when all the fun begins. Actually, the planning will begin long before the website and sales funnel are completed. We will be building out all the channels you will need to promote your website. We’ll create a strategy calendar with you and help you, should you need assistance, to find the right client.
