Is Metal Potato the right web design company for you?

Yes! Well, we think so, anyway. To discover the answer for yourself, delve into the FAQs below.

Metal Potato has a wide range of capabilities and can build everything from eCommerce websites, immersive multimedia experiences, to clean, crisp online homes for businesses or organisations. Our clients include online businesses, manufacturers, media companies, one-person companies, celebrity brands, governments and more.

Despite the wide array of websites in our portfolio, we will begin your project the same as we have for every website we’ve ever built–by taking time to understand what makes your company or organisation unique, as well as your mission, goals and ‘personality’.

From there, we develop a customised website solution, including estimated costs and a time frame for launch. Most importantly, you should know that your project will launch on budget, on message and on time!

Yes. Our projects are nearly always built from the ground-up. Metal Potato will develop your site based on your needs, not on our capabilities. And, for what it’s worth, we don’t believe in overcomplicating the web design process by suggesting gratuitous bells and whistles.

Although Metal Potato sites have style and attributes that have proven effective over time, your site will be designed based on your needs and preferences. Do-it-yourself websites are a dime a dozen, but Metal Potato builds custom, mobile-friendly websites that are specifically tailored to the needs of our clients.

We won’t know until we know more about your particular project. Our costs are based not only on design, but the various needs and functions related to your site. We will engage you in a thorough process to help us understand what makes your company or organisation unique, as well as your goals–often times our clients learn a few things too!

These steps are crucial to the success of your website, which is why we provide individual quotes for all projects. After reviewing your brief, our team will provide you with an estimate and a timeline for launch. Request a quote today.

After launching your new website, we offer a range of services to continue supporting you in the form of Potato Care to ensure the success of your website (see more on Potato Care below). Also, ongoing content maintenance and SEO services are available at an additional charge.

We know how important ‘peace of mind’ is when it comes to your website. That’s why for a modest fee we offer Potato Care, so that your site is equipped with the ever-evolving code and plugins that keep your site mobile-friendly, secure and working to its full capacity.

Potato Care includes ongoing hosting, monthly inspections for updated plugins and software, and full security, including back-ups that virtually eliminate downtime. In short, we’ll take care of your website while you take care of your business.

You may have noticed that Metal Potato values its long-term relationships. We don’t just slap together sites and throw our customers to the wolves. You will be able to inspect your site before it goes live to make sure it looks and functions the way it is supposed to. Also, if it turns out that there is a problem, it will be fixed right away.

We have extensively tested our process over the years and are confident that you will be thrilled with the initial design we create for you. Our thorough research enables us to understand your preferences and deliver a design that aligns closely with your vision.

We have never had to redo a design because it has failed to meet expectations. In the rare event that this should occur, please be assured that we will put every effort into rectifying the situation to your satisfaction.

On average, a simple WordPress website with, say, five pages and basic features can be built in a few weeks. More complex websites with multiple pages, custom plugins and themes, and a large amount of content may take longer. Most importantly, unless you make changes or additions along the way, your site will launch on time.

For WordPress web design and development projects, we require a 50 percent deposit at the beginning of the project. The remaining balance is due 10 weeks later or upon completion of the website, whichever occurs first. For hosting and maintenance with Potato Care, you will be charged monthly using a credit or debit card of your choice.

No, we build sites for everyone. Geography does not limit our ability to deliver successful websites. Thanks to modern technology, our team can work with clients worldwide. For reference, the United States accounts for 40 percent of the websites we build and host.

Yes! We understand that each project is unique, and we are committed to providing personalised service to meet your needs. This includes working with your designer(s) or third-party or outside agency to help bring your vision to life.

Metal Potato builds WordPress sites exclusively. WordPress is the premier platform for crafting professional and intuitive websites that are effortlessly customisable and capable of scaling to meet the needs of our clients.

As of 2023, WordPress powers 43.1 percent of all websites–more than 714 million!

Absolutely! We’ve heard the horror stories about web developers holding sites and url’s hostage, and that’s not how we operate. After payment and launch, the website and url belong entirely to you, and you are free to host, manage and maintain it on your own.

That said, Metal Potato hosting includes our Potato Care service, which offers numerous benefits that many other providers do not have.

Specialised email providers are typically the best option for handling email. Our customers often use Google Workspace or Microsoft 365 as they are well-known and dependable. Metal Potato can help to set up your email with either provider. Once in place you may work directly with them for your email services.

Clients choose to work with Metal Potato because we have a reputation of launching websites on time and on budget, and of being a trusted and reliable website services partner.

If you currently have a WordPress website, Metal Potato offers a free migration service to move your website to our hosting platform, Potato Care, with minimal downtime. Our team of experienced developers will handle the technical aspects and test the migrated website to ensure its functioning properly. Contact us to get started.

Our team is always available to assist you with any questions or concerns regarding your website needs. When you reach out to us, you will have the opportunity to speak with knowledgeable and friendly individuals who specialise building world-class websites. Why wait?
