Frequently Asked Questions
What digital services does Sonic SEO provide?
At Sonic SEO we concentrate on 3 main areas of work:
Web Design | Search Engine Optimisation | Social Media Marketing Campaigns
If you have anything that sits within the field of computer design, we’d love to discuss how we can help you further.
Does Sonic SEO offer value for money?
Compared to other website design companies, we offer so much more that we don’t even consider charging for, even though we could easily do so.
Items that we offer for FREE with every website include:
- Setting your company up on Google My Business.
- Free logo design and company graphics packages.
- Social media account set up: Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest.
- Banners, posters and other advertising features for website and social media.
- Lifetime updates, support and advice with every purchase from Sonic SEO.
How long does it take to build a website?
Each project is different, which makes it hard to give you an exact time. For a small business website of between 5 and 10 pages we estimate between one and two weeks.
This of course depends on our workload and providing we have all the necessary information to complete the project.
How much do you charge?
All our services have different price points, hence it is hard to give a list of prices. Instead of having a one-size-fits-all approach, we give a detailed breakdown of your project and the associated costs.
We try and price our work fairly and competitively, plus we work hard in order to get you great results, so looking at the bigger picture we hope that you get awesome value for money.
Why should I trust Sonic SEO?
At Sonic SEO we pride ourselves on the quality of our work. We’re perfectionists and won’t stop working on your website till you are happy with the result. It’s as simple as that.
Do I need to buy my own domain name?
We can use your existing domain name if you already own one. Alternatively you can either buy one yourself, but if we’re going to build your website it makes more sense for us to buy it for you.
Whatever we buy on your behalf is still registered in your name and you are the legal owner.
What about web hosting?
We only work with the best names in the industry, that’s why all of our websites are hosted on Bluehost servers. They’re recommended by WordPress and have a tone of professional features that make your life easier and less stressful.
We usually charge a monthly fee for web hosting depending on the package you have.
Cloud hosting, which is what we use, is faster than a traditional shared server. When traffic gets busy on a shared server your website slows down. With cloud hosting your traffic is moved to another server, then if that one gets busy it moves to a third one.
Advantages of cloud hosting are: Security | Speed | Reliability
Although we use cloud hosting, we still use two CDNs – content delivery networks – StackPath and Cloudflare, who have servers all over the world so rest assured you website should always be available.
If your website uses AMP technology, you still have web hosting as normal, but if someone finds you through Google search, then Google will serve the page from the AMP cache. You won’t be charged by Google, though. AMP cache is free.
What makes Sonic SEO different?
At Sonic SEO we only use industry recognised products. We want you to be assured that your website won’t crash in the middle of the night so you don’t miss out on any revenue.
Companies that we trust are:
- Bluehost – for hosting your WordPress website.
- Cloudflare – for security and content delivery network.
- StackPath – were MaxCDN – for content delivery network.
- Themify – our main WordPress theme provider.
Can you get me on the first page of Google?
Any company that promises they can get you on the first page of Google should be treated with caution.
To get on the first page of Google means you have to satisfy the Google algorithm, which has approximately 200 ranking factors. Main things to consider are:
- Number of quality back links to your site.
- Age of your website.
- Social signals to your site.
- Are you in a crowded niche?
- Do you have high quality content?
What will happen to my emails?
If you’re already using email, such as Outlook 365 or Gmail, you can continue using this as normal. Otherwise we will set you up an email account, such as email@example.com.
We can make a web form and forward any emails on to an address of your choice.
Can I edit my own website?
The main reason we choose to use WordPress as a content management system is that it’s easy to use for clients, not just web design professionals.
You can set up as many accounts as you wish and give people access as necessary.
