Working with Jon and Adam has been fantastic. We’ve partnered with them on several projects as our first experience was so successful.

The entire Emerge team was a pleasure to partner with on my website re-design. I cannot recommend them more highly! I could tell from the first phone calls with Allie and Adam that I was in excellent professional hands. Once Jon and the creative team got involved, they actually took time to learn about me, my business, and the services I provide to my clients. They listened astutely to the vision I had for my new website. Then BAM! they created it exactly how I was hoping, and even added enhancements I hadn’t thought of. Anytime I had a concern or question during the process, they all—Jon, Austin, Patrick, Adam and Allie—were so responsive and helpful. True problem solvers and solution finders! Both technical and creative experts. I also know that going forward, I can reach out to them with any new project or issue and will have their support, which as a small business owner, that means a lot. Emerge is the professional dream team in the website design and digital marketing world!

I originally reached out to Emerge with assistance in business startup. It was there that I connected with Jon who brought a lot of value during the initial phase. He helped me to dial in the focus and direction of the company through several conversations. Moreover, Jon’s experience and insight brought great value to my company. I would highly recommend Jon and the Team at Emerge for anyone looking to take their company to the next level during a time where the markets are constantly evolving and competition is high.

Allie, Sam, and Jonathan helped me make my very first professional website, and did an incredible job! Having a website built is one thing, but running, editing, and managing it is quite another. Their care and attention to making sure that I was comfortable and ready to take it over was stellar.

If your small business needs a website, the only team you should hire is Emerge Richmond. They led us through a discovery session that helped us vocalize our marketing needs and tailor our brand to our future customers. It was all based on what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. They're a top notch professional team & stayed in constant communication with us throughout the project's development life cycle.

From initial conversation to totally re-designed website, working with Anna, Jim, Jon and Patrick and the rest of the team from Key Web Concepts/Emerge has been a great experience. Having to meet virtually because of the pandemic was not a problem (we still have yet to meet in person). They came in on time and within the budget (important for a small non profit) and were very responsive as they led us through discussions about what we wanted for the new website. They continue to be responsive as questions arise about editing pages in Word Press. Great experience working with Key Web/Emerge.

Richmond web design questions

How much is a standard web design?

The cost of web design depends on your company’s goals.

Your website design cost is determined on how many pages and features you need. A simple brochure website could need only need a few pages and would take less time to complete than a website that needs to sell multiple products online.

A hundred-dollar website gets you what you paid for (revisions, wasted time and low quality). Small business websites shouldn’t need to invest tens of thousands of dollars either.

Emerge offers a discovery session to help you build what you need right away. This low-cost activity helps you understand what matters most to your business so you can invest in the most efficient website possible.

What is a discovery session?

Do I have control of my website?

 Absolutely! You paid for it, so you deserve to have ownership of your website without any strings attached.

When your website is ready to launch, you will be trained on how to operate it so you can update your  website without having to depend on us. The training session will be recorded so you can refer back to it to refresh your memory.

If you are too busy or too uncomfortable making changes to your website, we will be available to help via phone or email.

Can you design websites for any industry?

Emerge has years of experience designing websites for many industries. 

From construction to hair salons, Emerge helps create a path to success with our discovery phase.  This activity helps us understand your brand and its industry to design a personalized website that matches your audience and goals.

Is there still a need for web designers?

Web designers with business experience offer the best value for your website.

Emerge brings experience in business development with web design to the table. This is added value to helping you build a brand outside of your website.

While online website builders like Go Daddy offer convenience and flexibility, marketing experience and user experience strategy are key components to building a successful website.

A simple web builder will create something visual, but are you sure it is to the benefit of your customers without real marketing experience? Website builders let you build what you want, but how do you know that is what your customer wants?

Freelancers and solo entrepreneurs will preach savings with cheap web design solutions. Without a team on their side to back up other services relative to website design, your investment could be at risk for deep loss if you aren’t careful. Buyer beware is what we preach.

Your website deserves more than a cookie-cutter approach.

If you are building a website yourself, it could take you a considerable amount of time and resources that could be used to run your business. Not to mention, the results might not be what you had hoped for.

Emerge offers years of experience with a local full-service marketing team to take your website to the next level at an affordable cost that helps you meet your marketing needs. Get in touch with us today to see how we can help you grow your business.

How long will my website design take?

To be honest, it depends on a few factors:

  • How fast you can respond to us
  • The number of features you want on your website
  • The amount of pages you need for your site
  • Your ability to provide content (pictures and writing the website pages)

For small business owners, providing photos and written content can feel like a homework assignment.

That’s why we offer photo and copywriting services to help you get your website designed faster.

Schedule a consultation today to see how we can help create content for your website.

How do I get my website on Google?

Depending on your industry and services, there are tons of factors that come into play when you are trying to rank your website on search engines.

With Emerge, your website is at least designed to be Google-Friendly through initial search engine optimization (SEO).

If you’re going to spend money on your website, don’t you think your website should at least be ready for Google to see it?

While initial search engine optimization (SEO) is a boost to your website, it’s not a guarantee of first-page rankings. If companies promise you fast, first-page organic rankings for your website, please take caution, because not all that glitters is gold.
