Frequently Asked Questions
No, we are not a web agency. We don't make false promises to get you ranking in a month. Nor do we pretend that we will take care of your social media, ad campaigns, email lists, and dog grooming for you.
If you want to dominate your market's online presence, you need to work hard at it. Cedar Studios will give a website that checks all the SEO boxes and all the knowledge you need to get started.
Our development time ranges from a few days to a month, depending on how busy we are. We have streamlined our onboarding and design process to be as fast as possible. You can reduce the timeline by promptly responding to questions and design reviews.
Our subscription pricing model is designed to help small businesses get a website without a large upfront cost. Included in your monthly fee is website hosting, maintenance, and personal customer service.

When you cancel your subscription, we will return your domain name to you. You will have to leave your website with us and start over with another company. It can take 6–12 months for a website to properly rank in Google, so we only work with businesses that consider their website to be a long-term asset of their business.
Maybe! Some markets are not strongly affected by website design, and some even have customers who do not reach out online at all.
However, all websites are subject to search engines' ranking factors, which determine how high your website appears in the search results. DIY page builders will jumble your codeand make your website slower and harder for web crawlers to read. This causes an unneeded limitation on your website's search performance.

The 10 Principles of Good Website Design
Great design is equal parts creativity and convention. If your website is too plain, your business will be overlooked. Too different and you confuse and alienate your users. You must learn the rules of good design before you can break them. Here is a list of the 10 principles of good website design that we adhere to at Cedar Studios.
How to Setup a Google Business Profile
If you want your business's website to show up on Google's first page (you do), there is no better way to get started than by creating a Google Business Profile page. Google Business Profiles are the boxes that pop up when you search for local businesses. They include important information about your business, such as your phone number, website, hours, and more.
What People Are Saying
Incredible results, speedy, and my website is already performing well on Google. I love the detail that they put into the website design and that Ryan took the time to make sure everything I wanted was on there, and added in some awesome ideas that I wouldn't have even come up with. The website is easy to navigate and both functional and attractive. 10/10 would absolutely recommend!!
Ryan made having a website for my small business so easy and seamless! I would highly recommend Cedar Studios for your small biz website needs!
