Oklahoma City Web Design

You need a high performing website to grow online.

Just two words can make all the difference between a visit and a sale.

When we say "high performing," we don't just mean visually appealing or responsive, although those are key aspects of a high performing site.

What a "high performing" website actually is:

Checkmark Icon
Visually appealing, responsive, fast, and functional
Checkmark Icon
Easy to discover in search engines like Google
Checkmark Icon
Specifically designed to convert visitors into customers

Having a website that meets those criteria will help your clients discover you, trust you, and ultimately purchase from you.

At Carbon Creative, our focus is creating high performing websites with clean, custom design, compelling content, and effective SEO.

Why work with us?

Why should you partner with us for web design?

When it comes to choosing an Oklahoma City web design solution, businesses often have two choices:

bad x cross icon
Hire a big, expensive agency, who most likely doesn't have the time to dedicate to their small business clients
bad x cross icon
Cheap (but not really) DIY platforms like WordPress and SquareSpace that take up lots of your valuable time as a business owner and deliver lackluster results.

We think there's a better way to help small businesses grow online.

At Carbon Creative, we're hyper-focused on our core services, which allows us to design, maintain, and optimize exceptional custom websites for small businesses at a price they can justify.

Ditch your old website and let's build you a new website designed to get the results you need to achieve your goals. It's a no-brainer to partner with Carbon Creative for your Oklahoma City web design and SEO needs.

Every website we build is...

Visually Stunning

In today's online landscape, you need to stand out from the rest. If your website looks plain, boring, or doesn't convey trust, expertise, or originality, you're really selling yourself short.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to build a website?

On average, we shoot for a 3-6 week turnaround, but the pacing of each project depends on the size and depth of the project. Additionally, the client sets the pacing of the project, so the amount of feedback you can provide and your availability to provide feedback will be the biggest factor in designing the website.

Will I be able to update my site myself when it's finished?

Yes, we encourage you to update your website when it's finished. At the conclusion of each project, we'll provide you with access to Carbon Creative University, which is our onboarding and training platform designed to train you to proficiency with how to use your website. It's got video and text content explaining how to update the content of your website, publish blog posts, add portfolio items, and a variety of other web design tasks. We'll also give you a video training over Zoom or Skype showing specifically how to use your website, and we'll answer any and all questions you may have.

Will you maintain and update my site for me?

For clients with monthly plans: Yes, we will maintain and update your website, up to a certain amount of hours per month. Each tier has a different number of hours per month, and you can view the allotted hours above in the price tiers. Included in these hours is website maintenance/upkeep, and changes requested by you.

The former includes search engine optimization, analytics reports and tracking, updates, browser testing, all of which we do by default, while the latter includes things like design changes and copywriting, which are requested by you. Also included in these hours are any conference or Zoom calls or in-person meetings requested.

Should you request anything that takes longer than is budgeted, which usually does not happen, we will invoice you for $75/hour for each hour that exceeds the original budgeted amount, rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes.

For clients with upfront plans: No, we do not include maintenance hours with your plan, other than ensuring that your website stays up, hosted, and the domain stays connected. We optimize your site for SEO at the start, but do not update or change your site unless specifically requested. If you need us to make changes to your website after it's been launched, we bill these hours at a rate of $100.00 per hour, rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes, and will invoice you after we've finished making modifications.

Will my website be mobile friendly?

Absolutely! As more people are using mobile phones to browse the internet, we believe that it's critical to have a mobile site in order to reflect well on your company. Rest assured that your website will be completely mobile friendly, no questions asked and for no additional price.

What's the payment structure like? How do I pay?

For clients with monthly plans: After we finish building your website, we will invoice you for the first month of services. You have two options: we can automatically charge your credit card (with written permission) every month, or we can automatically invoice you instead. If you pay your first invoice on the 12th, for example, you'll be charged or invoiced (your choice) on the 12th of each month. Once we've received payment for the first month, we'll connect your domain and launch your website, beginning the recurring optimization and maintenance phase of the project.

For clients with upfront plans: We understand that a website is a big investment in your company's online presence, so we offer multiple plans to help you budget for it. Our preferred payment structure is 50% down and 50% on completion, however we offer many different options (like six automated monthly payments) and can customize the structure to fit your needs.

How much input do I have in the process?

You have a lot of input in the process, this is your website and we want to make sure that it comes out exactly the way you envisioned it. Your feedback is crucial to this process. We'll provide our expert opinion where it is needed, but will defer to you because you know your business better, and you have the vision for the website.

Who writes the content for the site?

Usually, you would be responsible for writing the content for the site. You know your business best, so the highest quality website will have content straight from you. Content includes photos, videos, text, blog posts, portfolio items, etc. If you are in need of photos or videos for your business, we offer photography and videography solutions that we can discuss in the proposal process.

How does hosting work?

For monthly clients, hosting is included in the total price you pay. We'll handle all the nitty gritty, and make sure your site stays up and running, and compliant with industry standards. With our hosting, you get amazing benefits that you won't find anywhere else. You get a free SSL certificate, managed by us, a content delivery network (CDN) to ensure lightning fast load time, and state of the art Amazon Web Servers, an industry standard.

For upfront clients, due to the nature of the Webflow CMS we use to build our sites, we'll bill you $25.00 per month to host your website. With this, you get the same amazing benefits as our monthly clients. If you need your site exported, let us know in the proposal process.

What if I need help on my site down the road?

We're just a call or email away! We're here to help you as little or as much as you need.
