Nanaimo has a population of 90,505 people (per the 2016 report from the United Nations) so you want to make sure your business has a useful, functional website to help stay competitive.

Designing modern Nanaimo websites starts with deciding which CMS platform is best for you. This allows us to better understand the needs and goals of your custom web design project.

From there, we'll go over questions to ask any Nanaimo website design firm to help make sure you're working with the right one. We will even discuss with you the process of our custom web design service for Nanaimo businesses to help you better understand the deliverables and timeframe.

In addition to UX website design, our award-winning team offers services like digital marketing, web hosting, and website maintenance.

Throughout the custom website development process, you'll be so glad you chose us instead of an alternative small-business Nanaimo web design service!

Determine Goals for Your Nanaimo, BC Web Design Service

Before proceeding with the selection of a custom website design firm for your Nanaimo business, it is important to understand what the goals are for your website project. These are the most common goals we see for Nanaimo web design projects:

  • To create a website for a new Nanaimo business.
  • To move an existing website into a modern website design to give a better first impression to visitors.
  • To improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • In order to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • To fix website accessibility issues, or perhaps receive a web accessibility certificate.
  • To improve your lead generation capabilities by having a better website that delivers more leads and better conversion opportunities.

We have experience delivering on such website goals, which should be of great help to British Columbia web development clients, such as yourself. Let us help you determine the goals of your custom Nanaimo web design project and ensure everyone is satisfied with the end result!

In addition to designing Nanaimo-area websites, our website design firm also offers Vancouver, Surrey, Burnaby, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Victoria, and Chilliwack small businesses and large corporations a custom web design service.

The Best CMS Platform for Nanaimo, BC Websites

The foundation of your Nanaimo website is the content management system you choose for the design project. Even though our top website designers are well-versed in multiple platforms, we only use WordPress for new content-based website projects.

More than 40% of websites in British Columbia and the rest of the country are powered by WordPress.

We specialize in WordPress not just because it's the most popular CMS platform in Nanaimo, but just because it's the best for a custom web development service. While there are dozens of content management systems to consider, we've found WordPress to be the most scalable platform for designing websites.

Benefits of WordPress for Your Custom Web Design Project

  • You can add functionality to your website without custom programming with WordPress plugins.
  • WordPress has a large community of contributors helping to improve the platform's functionality, stability, and security.
  • WordPress is huge among custom web design companies and freelance web developers, so you can find a local Nanaimo website designer to work with you.

Custom Design vs a 3rd Party Template for Your Nanaimo, BC Website

We are a full-service website design firm with a large staff of in-house web designers. Our website design team is separated into two groups, each focusing on either custom or template web development services.

Custom Website Designs for Nanaimo Businesses

As a custom web design company, we prefer to start every Nanaimo web development service from scratch.

This allows our team to design custom mockups specific to your branding requirements, to show you the look and feel of your future website before website designers start their work. Best of all, those mockups can be revised until you're happy with the design concept and are ready to move forward.

After you approve the custom website design mockup, our web development team will integrate it into a completely custom theme. There are many benefits to a custom theme, including a simplified codebase that often has better page speed and usability since it was developed specifically for your Nanaimo website.

Template-Based Website Designs for Nanaimo Businesses

If the cost of a custom website isn't within the budget of your Nanaimo businesses or organization, we offer template-based websites that can save you money!

Instead of creating design mockups and developing your website in a custom theme, we'll hand-pick several website templates that closely match your desired look and feel. Don't worry though, you'll be able to select your desired template for us to install on your development site. From there, we'll customize the template to match your color scheme and load your content into the template's layout options.

Nanaimo Website Development Pricing

For a web design using a customized 3rd party template, our starting price is $3,750 with a 2-3 week turnaround.

For a custom website with design mockups, our starting price is $9,500 with a 8-12 week turnaround.

Questions to Ask Your Nanaimo, BC Web Designer

There are several important questions to ask your Nanaimo web development agency before proceeding with your project. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked before starting a custom website design or web development project:

  • Does the website designer outsource the website project? Because we have our own internal team of professional website developers, we don't outsource custom web design projects to other companies.
  • Do the professional website designers plan to create 301 redirects to keep search engines happy? For any Nanaimo custom web development project that will replace an existing website, we plan out 301 redirects early in the project
  • Does the web designer plan to create a mockup, or provide template samples, before starting the website? We find it is easier to create a design mockup for Nanaimo website projects to help everyone understand the design direction before the website build gets too far along. However, that is only possible if you choose a custom website design service. If you opt for a template-based website, we'll provide several template samples for you to review instead.
  • Which CMS platform does your Nanaimo web developer plan to use on your website project? We prefer WordPress because of its popularity, scalability, and ease-of-use.
  • How fast is your Nanaimo web design service? We typically finish website design projects in 2-3 months.
  • Does the other custom website development agency have a good history delivering creative solutions to clients? As a full-service website design firm, we love a design challenge! Simply reach out to set up a phone call to discuss your needs!

Alternatively, if you chose a template Nanaimo web development service, we'll discuss your preferred design styles to help us find and suggest a few third-party templates for the project.

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
