Frequently Asked Questions

Web Design FAQ

Yes. Websites like Facebook, Amazon and Twitter are not like standard websites. They require thousands of hours of work just to get the portal or website launched. You’ll need a team of developers on hand 24 hours a day to keep the website running smoothly. Us at Southern Sons Group can assist you with bespoke Web Development Projects.

Yes definitely! If you want to expand your business, get more enquiries or become the go to person in your industry then you should have a website. In times of a global pandemic you might want to think about accepting online bookings or even expand into ecommerce.

Yes certainly. Your website will be fully responsive and will look great on all devices. Responsive Web Design is already included and we do not charge extra for it.

Great, you already have a website! That means we can build your new website whilst your legacy website is still online. Once you are happy with the design and we can then swap the old site for the new one. We will even cater for 301 redirects if applicable. It can take as little as 10 minutes for the new website to be visible. This means you’ll barely even notice a drop in your website traffic.

Yes of course. But to be honest we prefer making use of WordPress to build websites. WordPress is a CMS that’s easily accessible for our clients to update themselves and is search engine friendly. Another value add is easy to integrate with third-party companies.

We design your website from scratch using a number of tools. One of them is an open discussion with you and doing research on your competitors. You are also welcome to provide us with ideas or website you have on mind. We typically build your website using a platform known as WordPress.

It depends on the package you choose. We are happy to write the text for your website if you would like. We have a copywriter who will create the content for your website so you don’t have to. This may incur extra charges.

Yes absolutely. Once your website has been built we provide you with individual learning videos. We will also provide you with all the tools to be able to make website amendments. We make use of an easy-to-use platform called WordPress. Thus you can add edit and delete content without paying us to do it for you.

 

Yes, we can arrange a website maintenance package to suit your needs. This can range from 1hr per month to 40 hours per month. We can discuss a package that’s right for you.

We usually include hosting in our quotes. So it is easier for you to manage only one vendor. We offer a variation of hosting options starting from Shared Hosting to VPS and Cloud Hosting. We have access to Server Locations around the world which will be beneficial for your local SEO. In South Africa alone we have Server Locations in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

 

Yes, we split the payment into two. The first 50% is usually taken once you have accepted our proposal. The balance is to be paid on handover.

It all depends on what type of website you want us to build for you. All of this can be discussed during our discovery call before we start working together. Depending on which package we agree on we could need…

  • Images of you and your team
  • Images of your workplace
  • Content for the website e.g. text, PDFs, etc
  • Staff Profiles
  • Any Videos you would like to add to the website
  • Login details to your existing website
  • Cpanel or server access if not hosted with us

We are also able to transfer and migrate the content from your legacy website to your new website.

Before we start working together, we’ll usually have an initially chat on the phone or via Microsoft Teams or Zoom to discuss the project. Once we get started, most of the communication will take place over email.

This makes the process a lot easier as we will have all of the information saved and can come back to it later. Once the project is finished, we will arrange an 1hr digital marketing training session.

It takes approximately 4-8 weeks to build a website from start to finish, providing we have all the information from you. To be honest with you upfront: the website will only take a long time if we are still waiting for text and images from you. So the sooner you provide this information to us the faster we can do our job.

Onboarding FAQ

We’ll spend some time analyzing your digital marketing goals and budget, conducting research, and creating a winning strategy.

Once finalized, we’ll submit this plan to you and can then discuss whether you would like to proceed with it

Quotes are sent within 1-3 working days after you’ve gotten in touch with us (depending on the scope of what your brand is looking to accomplish.

Your onboarding officially begins!

Our onboarding process is purpose-built to ensure a smooth transition between sales, finance, and production. An easy and seamless client experience in this transition is of paramount importance.

Our process involves finalizing contracts, connecting with Accounting, assigning dedicated strategists, and conducting thorough kick-off meetings. 

Finalizing Contracts:

Upon receiving a signed SOW, your New Business Strategist at Digitopia will connect with the CEO of our company to review the contract, countersign the agreement, and send it back to you for your records.

Accounting:

Within 72 hours of receiving a signed SOW, our Accounting Department will be in touch with a request for initial payment. 

Dedicated Strategist:

For multi-service clients, you will be assigned a dedicated Account Strategist as your main point of contact. Unlike the typical “overloaded Account Manager,” your strategist only leads a handful of clients. This allows each strategist the time needed to immerse themselves completely in your brand. Your strategist will act as a seamless extension of your internal team.

Initial Audit & Kickoff Meeting:

Prior to the client kickoff meeting, the team will have requested access to all necessary platforms and reporting tools, which will be used to perform an initial audit of all relevant systems and past marketing activities.

Your account team will come prepared for the workshop-style kickoff meeting (3-6 hours) with additional questions and recommendations on how to prioritize your digital marketing opportunities.

In this meeting, all stakeholders will review a detailed project/service timeline as well as examples of deliverables that will be developed within the first 8 weeks. Additionally, we’ll work through a series of discovery and planning exercises that span subjects such as: sales process and performance, marketing goals and current performance, market segmentation, buyer personas, content marketing, advertising channels, and more.

You will have two main points of contact: your account manager and strategy expert.

Your account manager will be your main point of contact, handling your day-to-day queries and ensuring you are always up-to-date on your marketing campaign’s progress.

Your strategy expert is an experienced professional that specializes in a particular core service at SSG (e.g. an SEO specialist or web developer).

They are responsible for the execution of your online marketing campaigns.

You’ll be able to communicate with both your account manager and strategy expert in meetings or via email.

For longer status/reporting meetings, we will coordinate a frequency based on your preferences. This can be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Otherwise, during the ongoing running of your account, we will communicate with you (telephonically or via email) as often as is necessary. We understand how important timely feedback can be, so you can expect any email queries to be responded to within 1 working day.

We’ll also keep you informed about deadlines and task completions where applicable.

Ultimately, your satisfaction is what is most important to us. We want to help you, and we will – whether by partnering or by parting ways.

Should you decide that you don’t want to work with us, we will gladly refer you on to a different consultant or agency who might be better suited for your project.

Similarly, if we don’t think we’d be the right digital marketing agency to execute your campaign, we’ll put you in touch with one that is.

We’ve spent time developing connections with other marketing companies, and will only refer you on to those we trust.
