Why Choose North Georgia Web?

North Georgia Web LLC, based in Ellijay, Georgia, is a distinguished provider of web hosting, web marketing, and web design services. With a rich history spanning over two decades, we have consistently delivered tailored website design and web development solutions to businesses and professionals throughout North Georgia. Our commitment to excellence is matched by our competitive pricing, a characteristic that often prompts the question: “What sets us apart from our competitors?” The answer can be found in our unique background and approach.

Our company has more than two decades of experience in constructing and promoting both business and niche websites. Following the sale of our publishing enterprise and a semi-retirement in the picturesque setting of Ellijay, Georgia, we discovered a deep-seated passion for the creative art of website construction. It is the joy of transforming concepts into something that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also highly functional.

In contrast to many design agencies that depend on specialized teams for individual facets of web design, we take pride in managing approximately 95% of our projects in-house. Our dedicated team consists of two seasoned web developers, each capable of overseeing virtually every aspect of the web design process, from inception to completion. This eliminates the need for expensive specialists in every task, allowing us to offer more cost-effective services without any compromise on quality.

In an era defined by specialization, where each individual focuses on a specific area of expertise, larger companies often maintain extensive teams dedicated to various facets of web development. However, at North Georgia Web, we stand as a unified team, underpinned by our extensive knowledge and diverse skill sets, enabling us to efficiently and cost-effectively see projects through to fruition.

Whether you are contemplating building your website independently or enlisting the services of seasoned professionals, we encourage you to consider the distinct advantages of partnering with North Georgia Web. We possess the expertise, experience, and unwavering dedication to bring your vision to life, all at an exceptionally affordable price point.

Should You Build a Website or Hire a Pro?

Although the question “Should I build my own website?” is not one we encounter frequently, it remains the foremost query for many of our clients when they contemplate a website for their business.

Building a static website may not be as complex as it once was (cue gasps from high-priced designers). Nowadays, with the availability of ready-made templates and user-friendly drag-and-drop web builders like our WebDawg Builder, virtually anyone can create and publish their website with a modest upfront investment and some trial and error. However, a successful website launch involves more than just its creation.

Here are some fundamental components that contribute to the successful publication of a website:

  • API services
  • Google Search Console
  • Google Business Manager
  • XML sitemaps
  • Analytics, along with other necessary integrations for a modern website
  • SMTP Mail connectivity

While it is true that many of these tasks can be accomplished with research and effort, it’s important to consider the time, potential frustrations, and potential errors that can result from managing them independently. Spare time is often a luxury that small business owners can’t afford.

Creating a website is akin to constructing a house; it frequently ends up being more costly than originally planned. While web development can be initiated at no cost or a low cost, ‘free’ themes and plugins often come with limitations, necessitating additional purchases to unlock full functionality. Premium themes, plugins, licensed images, and other enhancements may be necessary to achieve the desired outcomes.

Furthermore, optimizing your website for search engines like Google and Bing is crucial for its visibility. This encompasses various tasks, including web hosting, DNS and domain management, SEO optimization, schema markup, server speed optimization through caching, CSS and HTML validation, and more. Integration with social media platforms and Google My Business is also essential for establishing a comprehensive online presence.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Our hosting and emergency services are available 24/7. Our business hours are 9 AM – 5PM.

Yes! We love it when our clients take control of their website and learn to manage it on their own. We’ll provide you with a set of comprehensive video tutorials to help you learn your way around, as well provide you with a training session to help get you on your way. We also offer professional website management services if you’d rather we manage it. We can affordably provide on-going support for all of our clients.

Usually it is the client who writes the copy. After all, you are the expert on your business, so it’s usually best if it comes from you. Don’t worry if you’re not a great writer, North Georgia Web is owned by a master librarian, who will edit anything you write to make sure you look and sound like the expert that you are. We also offer professional copy-writing services for an additional cost.

No, but for the most part, yes. The simple truth is: WordPress is the best solution for well over 95% of the clients that we interview. WordPress websites, by far, offer our clients the highest success rates, lowest design costs and the easiest transition into self management.

This being said, NGW is a full service design company that can do custom builds that are hand-coded or using Bootstrap, ColdFusion, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Shopify, CS-Cart and more. If you are interested in an alternatively coded website, please call us at 706-972-7737.

The horrible answer:  It Depends on the project’s scope and depth.

The long answer: Our prices depend on so many factors, it’s impossible to say in one sentence. We do know this one fact about our web design prices, nobody has ever beat our prices when we are giving out bids. That day may come, but as of 2023 it hasn’t.

To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call. 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.

We have been building and marketing websites since 2008. First we designed and marketed our own websites through our company Aunica Media. In 2012 we sold Aunica Media and semi-retired in Ellijay Georgia. So we have been offering professional web services for hire since late 2012.

Yes, there are a few here. We are happy to give you more references when we speak.

Yes. We can handle all phases of web development.

What a great question! We offer two options for website design: custom-built and template designs. Our template designs are primarily used for our website leasing programs, while all other projects involve custom-built websites. The key concern for many of our customers is whether their website will have a unique look and feel. The answer, regardless of the design approach chosen, is yes.

Now, let’s talk about the reality of most “custom-designed” websites. As designers, we utilize pre-designed code libraries such as Bootstrap, JavaScript, and others. These libraries contain a wide range of ready-made elements like boxes, sliders, and more. It’s a cost-effective and practical approach that allows us to keep our production costs reasonable and remain competitive.

Unless your website requires a truly revolutionary design with unique functionalities or data handling, it’s important to understand that most websites are created by assembling prebuilt snippets and wireframes. However, the areas where genuine uniqueness shines in custom-built websites are the media, artwork, and written content. These elements are carefully crafted to make your website stand out.”

Absolutely! In fact if you do a Google search right now for “web design in Ellijay” you will see that our search results are spot-on. We can do the same type of search engine optimization for you and your business; and for less money than the competition.

When we develop your website, we want to be clear that once we hand it off to you, it becomes your responsibility. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Now, this may sound blunt, but it’s the reality for almost every web designer out there, except for a few exceptions like us. At NGW, we value transparency and ensure that our customers are aware of this right from the start.

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty: the cost of managing and updating your website. This is where we truly outshine the competition!

Since we take care of hosting, domains, and website design, we are able to offer management packages that are a perfect fit for 80% of the websites we build, all for just $59 per month. (Please note that our pricing may have changed, so be sure to check our website management packages here.)

When you choose us to maintain your website, you’ll enjoy free hosting, free domain registration, and free updates. If you compare our offerings with others in the market, you’ll see that we surpass the competition in this regard.

For leased websites (template websites) the average turn around is 2 weeks. For custom websites the average is 6 weeks. All of the above answers are wrong, because all websites are different and our workloads change frequently. However, they are pretty close.

At NGW, we don’t adhere to a strict “formal” revision policy like many other web design studios. Our approach is simple: we are highly motivated to execute your vision precisely as you desire. In fact, our policy is straightforward – we insist that you only make payment once you are completely satisfied. There’s no need for a complex policy when our goal is for you to be absolutely thrilled with your website, while also ensuring we receive fair compensation. It’s a win-win combination that drives our commitment to excellence.
