SEO

1WHAT IS SEO?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a method of making a website as friendly as possible to search engine robots so they can receive the ranking they deserve. Many websites have great potential to rank well for their target phrases but are held back by technical problems which prevent them from receiving full credit for the reputation they have established.
2HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO KEEP ONGOING SEO EFFORTS?
The best way to explain the impact of an immediate stop in SEO efforts is to describe a line graph based on the site’s activity. If all of a sudden the line chart shows a large reduction in activity, your ranking will likely fall. SEO in the long term not only pays for itself, but can help you expand your business.
3IS SEO CHEATING?
Ethical SEO is not about gaming the system; it is about presenting a properly coded, properly structured, fast loading website with solid content that is focused on “what’s good for the user.”
4MY WEBSITE BOUNCES AROUND IN RANKING. WHY?
Websites often bounce around on the first page of the results. In the Google results, it’s because they are testing the site in different positions to see where the users “vote” it to be the most important. For example, if your site is displayed in position #2 and receives more clicks (votes) than the site that previously held the ranking during that period (day, hour, month, etc), then your site is likely to stick in that ranking and push down the site that didn’t perform as well.
5HOW LONG UNTIL MY SITE IS #1?
The amount of time it takes to achieve top rankings varies. There are hundreds of factors that determine where your site will rank in relation to the other sites competing for ranking. We will work within the constraints of your budget to achieve top ranking as quickly as possible. Some of our clients have seen incredible results within the first couple weeks of implementing our recommendations, and for some clients it can take up to a year to achieve top ranking, if ever.

Web Design

1HOW IS THE COST OF A NEW WEBSITE DETERMINED?
Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost structure is based on the package selected, the complexity of functionality, the size of the website, and the need for marketing support such as search engine optimization, copywriting, and social media integration. Every project is unique and we try to make sure our pricing is based on your specific needs and not what we think the market will tolerate.
2HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE A WEBSITE?
The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website is based on several factors. Custom design work can take anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you require. The development phase requires an additional 1 - 6 weeks, depending on the number of pages, and the functionality required. Of course, these are general guidelines, and we will make every effort to meet the timeframe you have in mind.
3WHEN IS PAYMENT REQUIRED FOR YOUR WEB SITE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES?
For small projects, 50% of the estimated fee must be provided prior to beginning work, with the remaining payment due upon completion of the project. For larger projects, an initial payment representing one-third of the estimated total fee is required. The second payment is required upon the halfway point, with the final third due upon completion of the project.
4HOW MANY CHANGES CAN I MAKE TO MY SITE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL COST?
We give as much latitude as we possibly can. After you've identified the general format and color schemes of your preferred design, we'll complete up to 2 rounds of major revisions at no charge. All minor revisions are provided at no charge.
5DO WE NEED TO HAVE A FACE TO FACE MEETING PRIOR TO STARTING THE PROJECT?
In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs online via, our secure testing server for you to view the work in progress. This way we can have regular communication to ensure you are getting exactly what you expect from the Zinger team.

Misc.

1HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BUILD AN APP?
The Spheere framework enables our development team to build high-quality apps in a short time frame without sacrificing quality. From receiving the content to making the app available in the AppStore and Google Play for users to download, the development timeline is a seamless process taking as little as one month. While mobile apps requiring a significant amount of content or custom programming may take additional time, an Spheere specialist will be able to present a customized timeline for your specific project to ensure expectations are met and the finished product is available when needed.
2WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NATIVE AND WEB-BASED APP?
An app built specifically for a device is called native (as in native to that device), as opposed to a web-based app, which is essentially a website built to work in a certain way on a mobile device. Native apps are typically downloaded and installed from an app store (although it's possible to limit this to private access) – whereas a web-based app is typically reached in the same way you’d visit a website (you can pin them to your phones home screen just like native apps). Deciding which is right for your project will depend on a number of factors, your developer should be able to advise which is best for you.
3WILL I NEED TO TEST MY APP FULLY?
We have the testing team in-house and before submitting to client we test the things to make sure everything is upto the mark. But we always encourage our clients to test from their own perspective so that when application go live at that moment they have complete idea of what is happening. Most of the applications are having Admin Panel also which later on manage by client or their team so we request them to go through everything before making the things live.
4WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY APP WITH NEW OS RELEASES IN BOTH IOS AND ANDROID?
Generally iOS & Android do take care of the old functions so that your application does not stop working when there is new OS released but still your complete application or certain part of the application stopped working then you should create the list and contact the development company to get them fixed. Development company may fix the specific issue or have to recode the specific part; as that is completely dependent on how deeply new OS affect the old application.
5HOW CAN I MAKE MY APP SUCCESSFUL?
To make the application a success - you must have to review again with what purpose you got the application developed? Do you have solid marketing strategies for the users you are targeting? Do you have enough funding to manage the solid marketing? If you have above answers then based on the answers you can prepare the action plan and reach to the end-users.
