We get it, this stuff can be confusing.
Anything and everything! We will create as many pages as you need as well as custom graphics, an integrated blog, stock photos (we include $20 worth of stock photos for free), contact forms, basic search engine optimization, and more.

No. Flash technology is not viewable on iPads and iPhones, so if one of your potential clients uses one of those devices to view your site, they will only see a blank page. However, we can create similar “flash-like effects” using jQuery, which is viewable on iPads and iPhones. To see jQuery in effect on your iPhone or iPad, check out www.epicstone.net.
Not a problem! We start by learning about you. We will discuss your company’s personality and character, as well as your goals and the image you want to portray to your potential clients. We will probably ask you to show us a few websites you like to give us an idea of designs that are visually appealing to you. We then build a clean, modern and professional site based on that information and incorporate your logo into the design for a nice, cohesive flow.
We structure all of our websites to be Google friendly, and we consult with each client on how they can best optimize their site going forward.
We understand that SEO is never complete, so we get our clients going with the proper foundation and are always available to answer their questions and help them keep their site optimized.
To increase your online presence and boost Google rankings, we recommend the following:
• Content and blog writing, to provide education and information about your business and industry
• Press releases for announcements, sales or new products
• Email marketing
• Video marketing
• Social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Yelp
There are many different ways to market your business online. At Website Muscle we stress that our clients focus on the highest ROI activities first, such as the ones listed above.

The time frame depends on several factors, including the size and complexity of your site, as well as our current workload. Most of our websites are launched within one to two months of commencement, but some take up to three months. Our Proposal will include an estimated date of completion. One thing is for certain: we won’t leave you in the lurch. We communicate with our clients and will provide regular updates on the status of your project.
We will try our best to expedite the process if you’re in a rush to get something up and running. We can also upload a “Coming Soon” web page while we are building your site.
We provide pre-designed websites (built by Website Muscle) for you to choose from starting at $2,000 and completely custom, ground-up websites start at $4,000. Most businesses we work with prefer something in the middle – a little more customization than the pre-built sites provide, which would fit with our $3,000 option.
To further optimize your online presence, we do offer monthly content writing for $75 per hour.
