FAQ

Can I pay for the site outright instead of monthly?
Our plans are designed with ongoing maintenance in mind. You are welcome to pay ahead, but we generally don't accept payment for a website in one flat fee as this is not our business model. We prefer to partner with our clients for their long-term goals rather than to sell websites. Our busy customer's find this type of website partnership affordable and effective.  Contact us for more information.
What can UpEngine help me to accomplish?
UpEngine's services are designed to increase your visibility online. We create modern sites, and then we empower them through search engine optimization an advanced conversion techniques. So in short - If you want your site to have visitors AND you want your visitors to become customers. We can help.
How is UpEngine different?
As Will Smith would say - "We make this look good." We are designers first, and creative sites are what we are known for. Too many web agencies today churn out plain ugly and disappointing sites that were out of date years before they were made. These designers usually build websites that are based on templates and usually deliver Wordpress sites because it is the easy way to do things. At UpEngine we create each site from scratch, using your input and elements unique to your brand.
Secondly, our process is built around the expertise of different departments. Our design staff is not the same as our development staff which in turn is not the same as our SEO staff.
1. Our designers are adobe, sketch and even charcoal experts. They are disciplined in both UI and UX principles and understand how effective design changes by industry.
2. Our developers can make any design into a reality. And they enjoy putting dynamic life into the layouts.
3. Our SEO staff is probably reading right now. Research, apply and repeat.
We believe in enabling our team to do what they love and what they are best at.

And we are honest and practical. We don't bite off more than we can chew. We will not accept every new project that comes knocking. Once our workload is full, we disable signups for the services we cannot provide. This is important because we allocate a certain amount of time to each of our client's websites on a monthly basis.
Will I need to be involved in the website?
We will need your input throughout the design and development process. We will need photos and content direction to make sure your site represents your company well. However, our plans are set up to minimize continued efforts on your part. Your website will not require a lot of ongoing involvement. Our clients hire us to handle their website while they focus on running their business.
Do I own my website?
The website we build for you will be hosted on our servers and made available for export after 12-18 months of ongoing service, depending on your plan. This makes the cost of our plans more affordable and the implementation of your website more effective. Compare this to a traditional design firm who will charge $3000+ up front for a comparable website or some of our competitors who release their sites after 36 months.
