What is web development?

Web development is website design combined with back-end programming. The typical goal of web development is to produce a website that is database driven. Some of the largest websites in the world rely on databases which allow the site owner to add, change, or delete what is stored in their database without having to open each individual file. The programming embedded in the website then takes care of updating the hundreds, if not thousands, of web pages.

However, web development is an evolutionary process for every individual client. Some business may require more basic catalogue style website's whereas; larger businesses may feel that an Intranet or an E-Commerce style web design is more appropriate.

The Website Marketing Group can help you tailor a business solution that meets your business requirements. To learn more, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.

What is a web application or web based application?

A web application is a program that runs on the web. Typically interactive, the application accepts input from the web user, processes the input, and displays the results. Web applications usually have a multi-tier architecture and use technologies such as ASP, XML, and database connectivity to perform the data processing. Web development firms should have certain plans and procedures for web based applications. Read more about the web-based application services we offer.

What is E-Commerce?

E-Commerce is a general term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information and funds across the Internet. This covers a range of different types of selling, from consumer-based retail sites through auction and music sites, to business exchanges trading goods or services between corporations.

What is E-Business development?

E-Business is slightly more than e-commerce. Doing business between suppliers and vendors or partners can be done online. The complete business transaction can be done and controlled by an E-Business site.

Isn't web development and web design the same thing?

All websites are created using web design techniques but web development, or Web programming, is only used when a site needs to be interactive, dynamic or perform a function that is outside of the realm of static website design.

Why would I want web development or a database driven site?

If your site has to be updated frequently, even on a small scale - A database driven website will allow those without any design or development experience to make changes, updates, additions or deletions thus saving money on maintenance contracts.

If you're planning on having your website interact with the user in any way other than simply displaying your web page's information, you'd want a database driven site. Web programming handles everything from a simple feedback form to a complex e-commerce system.

What else do I need besides a professional web developer?

That will depend on the purpose of your site and the type of interactivity it offers. You may need secure hosting, SSL certificate, a merchant account or an online transaction provider. We will discuss your requirements with you and provide the web consultancy necessary to help you determine exactly what is necessary as well as the best method of obtaining it.

What web application programming languages and technologies does The Website Marketing Group use?

ASP, ASP.NET, Visual Basic, PHP, JavaScript, HTML, MS SQL, MS Access MySQL, XML, DHTML, etc.

Are your web developers properly trained?

Our professional web developers have all received training in web development languages and we have an ongoing training program to ensure that our knowledge is kept up to date. They attend regular seminars conducted by Industry experts. The Designers have, at minimum, a Degree and the Developers are Engineers and Master degree holders in Computer Applications from reputed universities in Australia. We also give them professional Project management training, team building, knowledge sharing practice and classes, which helps us to work together with a good relationship. We know what we want the end result to be, but we don't know what needs to be done to achieve it.

Do you use ready-made website templates?

NO and YES. We know you have a unique business and need a unique website to reflect your business. So, we prefer to give you a solution designed for you alone. However, although we do not recommend ready-made templates, if your budget requires such, we would work with an agreed upon template with you.

What options do I have for maintenance of my site?

The Website Marketing Group's web solutions can offer you a complete Web Maintenance Support Plan. From minor to major changes, a support plan will offer you the convenience and flexibility of updating, modifying or adding to your website with the relative ease of a phone call or an email to TWMG. In addition, a support contact can offer you the benefits of Online Marketing and hosting services for improved website performance.

Alternatively, should you wish to manage your own website, a custom built web editing software (Content Management Solution or CMS) will be created for you.

How long does it take to complete my website?

An average site of 5 - 10 pages would normally take 2-4 weeks. However, this depends on the complexity of the pages and also on the participation level of the customer. It is crucial for the customer to provide The Website Marketing Group with all requested information on a timely basis. We will involve the customer as much (or as little!) as they desire. Some prefer to be part of the process along every step, while others would rather let us use make decisions based on our past experiences.

Can I edit my own website?

Yes, if you request to have our easy to edit web application (CMS) installed, this would be an additional cost. You can easily log into a web browser to make changes to your own site. This is a very popular option for businesses that would prefer to save money by making their own site updates.
