How long have you been buiding websites?
Approximately 15 years ago, I discovered an interesting button in Netscape browser called, View Source. After doing some investigation I realized that all of these characters and words translated to the raw code of the web page. Since that interesting evening I've been manipulating and dissecting code both professionally and as a hobbyist. I LOVE building websites!
Do you have a degree?
I have a degree in Business Management and a couple of quarters in Interactive Media. I have plans to go back and finish my second degree but as of now between my family life and you folks, I'm terribly busy to pursue that as of now! Rest assured though, if my knowledge translated to a degree, I'd have a PHD in the field of Multimedia Web Design!
How long will it take for my job to be completed?
We do not guarantee a time frame when it comes to the completion of our work due to so many parameters involved in each and every multimedia project. A lot of the time frame will depend on how fast you hammer down all the information you want on each and every page. On average a website will take 5-15 days to complete, greatly depending upon the size of the website and how fast you deliver us the information we request.
Will we need to meet in person in order to build my website?
In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. During the building process we will communicate a few times per day in order to provide you details of our work. Also, we will provide you with temporary links (only accessible by us and you) in order to check on the progress and make changes as we go. This makes the approval process and the time it takes to get your site live much quicker which we find is better for your business.
Once my site is complete how much support do you offer?
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that your website need never get out of date plus we can help maintain the website for you or you can hire us to teach you how to edit your site on your own.
Do I have to keep my website with you forever, or can I move it to another supplier to host it if I wish?
You may move your website to another web hosting service at any time. Once your website design has been completed, at your behest we will send you a copy of the website on CD. This copy of your website is for your retention. However, we offer very inexpensive hosting and I don't think you'll ever need to go elsewhere. We keep your site active on our hosting servers for just $50/year. Average cost of our competitors is much higher than that.
Will my site be Search Engine friendly?
All our websites are developed with search engines in mind and are closely key worded to assist in the population of your page on them. We work directly with Google and Bing to make sure your site is listed on both.
What is a CMS and do you offer one?
A CMS (short for Content Management System) is a web utility that holds all of your programming language and code in an easily accessible space. Their designed so that after your website design is completed that you can make changes and additions on your own with little to no experience.
Why should I choose Develop Dreams over your competitors?

Unlike a lot of our competitors we are very inexpensive for the work we produce. We back all of our projects up with our "Satisfaction Guarantee" which will make you feel comfortable in knowing that your project will be perfect for your business needs.
