  • Do you work with local businesses only?
    We work with businesses from all over! However, some of our services are limited to only clients in the United States.
  • How long have you been in business?
    We started Forte + Family in Summer 2016 to the present day. We continue to grow our clientele all over the nation for the last 6+ years and have no plans on stopping any time soon!
  • Why are you called Forte + Family?
    Well, to be fair, the founder's last name is Forte (smiles). But no, in all seriousness, we wanted to portray a business that treats its clients like family - which we do. We genuinely want to see everyone WIN! Now, we know you may not like each one of your family members, but we treat you like the ones you really love and adore (bigger smiles).
  • What makes you different?
    From the very beginning, we have connected with each and every client – providing individual care to the needs of each project. We’re not cookie cutter and we’re proud of it! Additionally, we're affordable. Have you seen other web design and marketing companies? They won't even sit down with you unless you're willing to spend THOUSANDS! We wanted to offer the same professionalism, at a much lower price.
  • Who do you work with?
    The businesses who need us most! We have worked with local mom and pop shops to non-profits and medium-sized businesses.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    Upon agreement of the quote presented, we will accept Debit, Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Check, Money Order, Cash and CashApp.
  • How long will it take to complete my website?
    Our standard timeline is 3-6 weeks to complete a website, but this depends on the project since the size and pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you can provide during the initial stages, your feedback, how soon the content is provided – all this affects the speed of completion. The functionality and revisions required will also play a role in your timeline.
  • How do we get started?
    Complete our contact us form with your website details (current or new project), page breakdown, and any sample websites to reference. Upon review, we will provide an estimate for your project or schedule a call to discuss further.
  • Who writes the text/content for the website?
    We require that you provide all of the text content for your website. You are the expert on your business, so it’s always best if it comes from you. If you need assistance, we have a copywriter on our team who can help clean up or write original content for you at an additional cost of $100 per hour.
  • Is SEO included in my website build?
    No, the build of your website does not include monthly SEO. All items that we add to your website including text, photos and video can be seen by Google but that doesn’t mean you will rank #1. We do, however, provide top notch monthly SEO services with our team of specialists who are ready to assist with your SEO needs! Reach out today to learn more about our SEO packages.
  • Do you only create Wix websites?
    Yes! Wix is one of the most user-friendly and intuitive website builders out there on the market today. For clients with minimal web design experience, Wix makes it easy for you to manage your site on your own after we finish. Their template websites are to the point and they have custom website templates with specific functionality to achieve your website goals. We’ve worked on all sorts of websites in countless industries (all on Wix). Sidenote: Though we use Wix for the majority of our websites, we've built multiple websites on Wordpress, Shopify, and others with the same premium quality as the ones we build on Wix.
  • How much input do I have in the website design process?
    A lot! Your input and feedback is crucial to this website design and development process. We’ll start with a lot of questions about your needs, your likes, your wants and work with you to develop just the right look and functionality. We also request you to provide sample websites before we begin your project. Remember this is your website and we need your help and direction as to your final vision. We’re a team and look forward to hearing your ideas.
  • What is photo sourcing?
    If required, we will assist you in finding free stock images from websites such as RawPixel and Unsplash. Your assistance and direction will be required to find the perfect images, photographs, graphics, vectors for your website and your brand.
  • Will I be able to update the site myself when it's finished?
    Yes! We love it when our clients take control of their website and learn to manage the content on their own website. You will have full access to the backend of your new Wix website upon migration to make simple text updates, photograph changes, new products and pricing can easily be changed on your own. However, we do recommend a professional (developer) to complete more complex changes and maintenance such as plugin updates, design or structure changes, and complex functionality requirements. We provide hourly tutorials upon completion of your website at $100 + tax per hour if you are interested in learning how to navigate through the backend to make minor updates independently.
  • Will my website be mobile friendly?
    Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly website is more important than ever! We work hard to ensure your website is responsive on modern devices and browsers.
  • How much do you charge to build a website?
    There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components; we design and develop custom websites specifically for your business. We’ll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a price quote based on that assessment. Our smallest package starts at $250. Please fill out our contact us form to get started!
  • Do I have to be in New York to work with you?
    No, of course not! We work with clients all over the nation and can communicate by email, scheduled calls, and Zoom meetings. This isn't the 1950s!
  • Will you maintain our website for us?
    We can help maintain your website, or you can do so yourself with the more minor changes. The choice is 100% up to you. We provide on-going support for many of our clients but it is not mandatory and you will not be charged a monthly fee. You can contact us as you require updates to your website and we will provide an hourly quote based on your requests.
  • Do you work with new and small businesses?
    Yes! We work with all types of businesses – new, small, everyone. We are excited to work and guide new businesses who are passionate about taking their first steps into an online presence and making their vision come to life.
  • What if I need help on my site well after you've completed it?
    We are only an email away! We’re here to help you as much or as little as you need, and we’ll be available even beyond the launch of your new website. Our team takes pride in building a long term business relationship with our clients and we look forward to the opportunity to work on your future projects or growing your website further. We’ve been doing this since 2016, so we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Feel free to email us at to request a quote or ask a question about your project.
  • Do you provide website hosting and domain?
    No, you will be responsible for website hosting and domain. This will ensure that you will have full access to your website upon migration. Wix has amazing hosting packages that we will help you choose the best one dependent upon your hosting needs. We will also help you complete the migration to your new hosting package.
  • What is your design process?
    We use a very similar process on all of our design work. It's super simple! Check it out here at Our Process
  • Have you done any work in our industry?
    Most probably, however the specific industry does not matter as we adapt our skills, research, and process around the client's needs and industry.
  • How long does it take to complete design work?
    Honestly, the timeline for completion depends on the feedback and communication. Our design process is both collaborative and creative which does take time, but that's only because your vision is important to us and achieving what you will be proud of. That being said, design work can take anywhere between 2-3 weeks from start to finish.
  • What do you charge for all your services?
    To be extremely transparent, every service is custom pricing. It will be affordable, but it won't be cheap cheap (you know what I mean). You can choose to work with an incredibly cheap firm or you can choose to work with an affordable, reputable, and professional design agency like Forte + Family Technologies. We will find a price that works for you along with an ideal payment plan.
  • Do you only work with clients locally?
    We work with clients locally and nationally. We take pride in our work and our ability to connect with our clients all over the world in achieving their design goals.
  • Will I own all of my design work?
    Yes, you will own all of your design work. However, we do not offer any patent/trademark registration - this is a separate process that is optional on your end.
  • What happens if I need more revisions after my design work is complete?
    If you require additional revisions, that's always OK - these things can happen. We charge an hourly rate of $100 and the final price will be discussed with you once we go over the revision process.
  • What is the client involvement in the design process?
    Each design project is a collaborative process between Forte + Family and the client. We encourage the client to bring in any samples, color combinations/swatches, and ideas they may have to help us get an idea of style before starting to work with new clients. During the design process, the client is asked to review, provide feedback and revisions.
  • What type of design work do you do? Can you help with marketing?
    Please visit our services section on the homepage. We assist with marketing, as well as the design for the marketing material. We do it all!
  • Do I get vector, PNG, and JPEG files for my design work once finished?
    Yes, you will receive the finalized vector, PNG, and JPEG files for all your design work. With these files, your designs can be used to complete stationery and brand marketing - including, but not limited to business card, letterhead, envelopes, brochure designs, websites, mailing labels, presentation folders, and more!
