Moreover, it is search engine friendly. Selecting the best platform for your project will help you achieve best results.

How long it takes to design a website is depends on how soon you can get us the content.  Most of the time we are waiting for customers to provide us content for their website.  Once we have discussed the initial concept with you and you have provided us with the material we give you a wireframe/design within 10 days.  We request your feedback and as soon as the design concept is finalized we start building the inner content.  The whole process is hassle-free.

Before we start your website we will ask you questions about your likes/dislikes, color preferences, types of websites you like, etc.  Then we will create a design and wireframe for you.  We will discuss the design with you and tweak it to make it exactly the way you want.

Yes, we build eCommerce websites.

We can build an eCommerce website for you.  We can also help you set up payment methods and shipping options.

We have worked with several eCommerce platforms.  Opinions differ, however we have found WooCommerce for WordPress one of the best and scalable platform for eCommerce.  Since it is popular you can extend the functionality with additional plug-ins.

WooCommerce is an open source software, therefore is the least expensive eCommerce platform. ZenCart and OSCommerce are also open source eCommerce platforms.  However, it is time-consuming to upgrade them.

Shopify, WIX, Go Daddy Website Builder are proprietary software, therefore cost more.  In the long run, they can be expensive depending upon the options you select.  Also, there is a limit to how much you can customize them.

NetQwik is a one stop web solution company.  We will set up the following for you before we start building your website:

  1. Domain name
  2. Hosting
  3. SSL

No. Nobody can give you that guarantee. Beware of companies who make these false promises.  We will create a search engine friendly website for you by following the guidelines recommended by Google.  We can market your business and help you with search engine optimization.  However, there is no guarantee that your website will rank #1 on Google. However, whoever tells you that they can place you #1 on Google is not trustworthy.  We strictly do white hat SEO.  Some marketing companies may play gimmicks to gouge customers, making false promises and telling them there are errors/issues with your existing website.  Do not waste money on such companies, most of them are frauds.  Even Google gets emails telling them that they will put on the top.

No, you will not lose your SEO when redesigning your website.
