Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to build a Web site?
Like anything, a good Web site takes time. Because our focus is on custom solutions, we need to work with you to develop your site to meet your needs. It's a very interactive process that will evolve into a fantastic web site for your organization. That being said, to build a Web site properly and thoroughly, you can expect an average timeline of 6-12 weeks. Many sites will take longer due to their complexity, but one of the first things that we deliver is a detailed timeline for the project. With solid communication from our clients, we meet each stage of the project and deliver our web sites on time and within budget.back to top
Why can't I find pricing on your site?
Global Marketing builds a wide range of web sites, and each site is custom built. That means custom graphics and custom functionality - specifically for your needs and built for your audience. So naturally, we need to sit down with you and truly think through your web site (with you!) before we can deliver a proposal with a cost estimate. Contact us today and set up an in-person or phone meeting to learn how we can help you with YOUR web site. Besides, the initial meeting is free, so give us a call! back to top
Is my business/organization too small for your company?
Not at all! We work with some pretty big organizations, but we also work with a lot of small and medium sized businesses. Some of our best and most successful clients started out as one-person companies! Of course, one of the big advantages of partnering with Gloabl Marketing while you are just starting off is that you won't have to shift companies as you get larger. We know what works and what doesn't, so we can help you grow according to YOUR schedule.back to top
Does location matter?
No. Global Marketing is located in Belize City. Whether you're near our offices or not, we are happy to be your web development partner. Indeed, as evidenced by our international clients, being in the online industry makes it both possible and easy to work together regardless of physical location. Moreover, traveling is very common. At any point in time, if traveling is necessary please give us a call for possible arrangements. back to top
Where can I submit my Request For Proposal?
All RFP's can be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, via fax at +501-223-4078, or via postal mail to P.O.Box 2591, Belize City, Belize. Once received, an account representative will follow up with you in response. back to top
Do I own my Web site?
For all intents and purposes, yes. If you decided at any point to part ways with Global Marketing, you'll be able to take your web site with you - web files, programming, databases, etc. as stated in our agreement. back to top
After launch of my new site, how long will it take to obtain visibility in the search engines?
In our experience, new domains typically achieve search engine visibility approximately two to four weeks after launch of the site. Our partners at MyBelize.Net allows for new sites launched to be placed on their portal for quick indexing. Your site may obtain visibility in Yahoo! and MSN prior to Google, due largely to initial aging delays that withhold new Web sites from Google for a length of time before indexing. While Global Marketing develops Web sites to be compatible with search engine indexing technology, there may be unavoidable delays in obtaining organic visibility. During this delay, focus on your offline and pay-per-click advertising to drive traffic to your site.back to top
What kind of technology do you support?
Do you host sites as well?
Yes. While it is not a requirement, our partner company BelizeHosting.Net hosts about 95% of our clients on their dedicated servers, which ensure the reliability and security of our clients' Web sites. All servers are backed up nightly and, in case of any outages, they have battery-powered and natural gas generators to power the centers indefinitely.back to top
Do you provide search engine marketing services?
Yes, Global Marketing does provide search engine marketing services. Any development work undertaken by us will be built in accordance with current search engine indexing technology, in an effort to obtain the highest natural placement possible. Additionally, our search engine optimization services can extend to Web sites that we have not developed. Where organic results may be unpredictable, we also provide pay-per-click services to manage your paid advertising campaigns through Google and Yahoo! Overture. Contact us today!! back to top
