A website build takes around 2-3 weeks at Creative Mantle, designs and layouts take more time because we do not use pre-built themes like others sometimes do. Sites are created for each client’s needs and are designed to be as fast and as efficient as possible given each client’s circumstances. Some of the factors that impact the time of delivery or launch include:
Scope and Complexity:
The size and complexity of the website play a significant role. A simple blog or a small business website may be quicker to develop than a complex e-commerce site with advanced features.
Custom designs and intricate layouts will take more time than using pre-built themes.
Functionality and Features:
The features and functionalities you want on your site can significantly impact development time. For example, integrating e-commerce functionality, membership systems, or other advanced features will take more time than a basic informational site.
The time it takes to create and gather content for your website, including text, images, and multimedia elements, is a crucial factor. If you have the content ready, it can expedite the development process.
Customization and Coding:
If you require custom coding or extensive customization of themes and plugins, this will add to the development time.
Client Response Time:
The time it takes to build a website is also influenced by the responsiveness of the client in terms of providing feedback, approvals, and necessary information. Delays in communication can extend the project timeline.
Testing and Revisions:
Adequate time needs to be allocated for testing the website on various devices and browsers. Additionally, there may be revisions based on client feedback, which can add to the overall time.
Hosting and Domain Setup:
Setting up hosting and configuring domain settings can take some time, depending on the hosting provider and the technical requirements of the project.
Updates and Maintenance:
Ongoing maintenance and updates, including software updates for WordPress core, themes, and plugins, should be factored into the timeline.
