The best part is you don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars or lose valuable business hours on a new website.

Show off your services in Chesapeake, VA with a new website

Many potential clients know what services they need but don’t know what business they want it from. That’s where your website comes in.

When people are searching online for what they need, your website can be there to tell them exactly how you can help. 

Emerge makes it easy to show off your capabilities. Our team will build a website that includes your services, industries, markets, locations and more. You won’t regret taking the chance to tell people why you’re worth working with.

Building a brand that speaks to your audience in Chesapeake, VA

Your website is more than just a domain and some buttons to click – it’s the face of your business. You can proudly display your who, what, when, where, why and how on your site.

Emerge gets to know who you are during our Discovery Session. You’ll walk our team through how your business works and what you have to offer.

Don’t be shy about your niche or confusing industry. Part of our web design process is learning about your company and markets. Whether you’re a contractor, engineer, financial advisor, teacher or preacher, Emerge can help your business succeed.

Your feedback is used to develop a creative marketing strategy that starts with your new website and grows from there. This can include choosing website features, discussing future marketing goals and creating spaces for feature reviews, contact forms and more.

By choosing a one-stop-shop marketing agency you can grow your digital presence quickly. Your website project includes a consultation, branding, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and invaluable advice.

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.

Optimized and professional website designs for small businesses in Chesapeake, VA

Owning a website for your business shouldn’t cost you tens of thousands of dollars. Branch out your business with a cost-effective website for your company.

Personalizing your professional website through our proven process

Many small business owners think a top-notch website is out of the budget but that’s not the case. You can get a WordPress website fully tailored to your colors, imagery, content and goals without sacrificing all of your money.

Your website still gets detailed and unique design without having to pay for development costs. Emerge makes sites affordable by using a buildable website theme that has endless options for your business.

Your  website is designed piece by piece through our discovery session. This includes all of the pages, images, logos, forms, menus and content your Chesapeake business needs. It works so well, we used it for our own site!

The best part? Once your website is public, you can make your own updates and additions. Your business can keep up with calendars, share new events, add more services and update contact information. If maintaining your website is eating up all of your time, Emerge can jump back in and help out.

Get a responsive website design that works for you 

Everyone has wasted time on sites that are too slow or don’t work on their phone. No matter how many times you click or refresh, there’s no helping an outdated and overloaded website.

Don’t scare away potential customers with pages that don’t load on their phones or computers. Emerge works to make sure your site is fast enough for even the busiest of online users. 

For the people that are too busy to even open up a laptop, your website will be mobile-friendly. Our responsive website designs work on smartphones and tablets to help you reach more people than ever before.  

Reach for Google’s first page with SEO services

Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the best ways to set your business apart online. Google wants to offer users websites that contain the quality content they’re looking for.

You can grow way beyond the competition by having a well-written and optimized website. Many businesses have outdated websites or never even knew they needed to have optimized content.

Emerge takes care of the basics when it comes to SEO. From the way pages and photos are labeled to how the URLs are written, everything is created with your customer searches in mind.

Your website will be made search-engine friendly by using terms that real people are actually using to find services like yours on Google.

Our initial SEO process is a great foundation for growing your business and expanding SEO efforts down the line.

Website design questions

How much does a website design cost?

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 an website that needs to sell multiple products online.

Emerge offers a discovery session to help you build what you need right away. This is a low-cost activity that 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.

What is a Discovery Session? →

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.
