Frequently Asked Questions
Getting more customers can be a challenge. We know you have a lot of questions. Here’s a great place to find answers.
Questions. Questions. So Many Questions.
We have the answers (And, we don’t even have. to make any up!)
As a business owner means that you juggle a lot of chainsaws. At Make It Loud, our only job is to find ways to make you more money, but in the meantime, you’ll have a lot of questions. Here are some of the ones we get most often. Feel free to contact us and we’ll answer any you may have.
How Much Do You Charge For Web Design?
This depends upon the size and functionality of the website that your business needs. We can tell you that the average price for a professionally designed website around Atlanta is in the $5000-$8000 range. We start much lower than that.
For e-commerce websites, the average price depends on how many products you plan on selling.
The best thing is to call us and let us talk to you about what type of website makes the most sense for you so that we can give you a specific price.
What Do You Charge For Your SEO Services?
This also depends upon several factors such as the competitiveness of your industry and the size of your service area.
For example, it’s “easier” to rank a website in Buford, Georgia than it is for all of Gwinnett County or all of Atlanta, or the entire state, the South, or the entire country. The bigger the pond gets, the more competition and more work involved in getting your site. to page one of the search results.
Also, it’s much harder to rank a real estate agent’s website or divorce attorney’s site for even Buford than it is say a church furniture store or something else that isn’t as competitive.
What Niches Do You Work WIth?
Great question! While many digital marketing agencies specialize or niche, we have avoided that for one primary reason. We get bored solving the same Rubik’s cube over and over.
In the 15 years we’ve been around, we’ve helped a wide variety of businesses make more money. If we tally up all the sites we’ve done alone, we’ve worked with a lot of different industrial-type websites, service-based businesses (HVAC, plumbers, roofers, etc.), as well as many others.
We started the company building websites for “mom & Pop” shops, so we love working with small to mid-sized businesses.
How Much AI Do You Use?
Honestly, the world of artificial intelligence is moving at light speed, so we’re learning as fast as we can. We use AI tools for idea generation, some content generation (although everything is edited by a real human before. it goes on a site!), an AI chatbot, and some AI tools for organization and productivity. If you’re interested, call us and we’ll help you identify some AI tools that could help your business.
Are Google Ads Effective For My Business?
Honestly, it really depends on what business you’re in. There are certainly times when we advise against it.
For instance, if your average customer only pays you $50 and to be competitive in your industry, you need to spend $1,000/month on Google Adwords, we’d tell you that it’s not a good way to spend your marketing dollars.
That being said, our digital marketing agency is Google Certified, so we have the experience you need to guide you down the right path for a solid ROI using Adwords. We don’t take on projects we don’t feel really good about.
How much do you charge for Google Adwords campaigns?
Unlike some of our competitors, we charge a flat management fee (vs a percentage of the ad spend). This fee depends upon how big your campaign is, but you will be very clean about how much money goes to us and how much is spend on your monthly ad spend, so call us for exact pricing.
Do you do social media marketing?
We do! From consistent posting on your social media channels to Facebook/Instagram ads, we can help you maintain an active presence for your business.

Find out how we’re different than the typical digital marketing agency.
- We’re Honest
Some agencies offer big promises with abysmal results in their digital marketing efforts. Whether it’s your SEO strategy, social media marketing, or display ads, we’re honest with what you can expect and how we’ll make it happen. In fact, we won’t work on SEO if your website isn’t up to par.
We’ve refused to work on SEO for clients with significant website issues. The reason is you won’t rank well without fixing technical errors on your website first. We won’t lie to you to get you to spend more money if we know we can’t deliver on our promises. We can, however, work with you to fix that website first!
- We’ll Work with You
If you haven’t navigated the world of digital marketing on your own, there’s a lot to learn. Plus, digital trends come and go all the time. It’s a full-time job keeping up with best practices! We’ve got that part covered so you don’t have to. We want you to be able to worry about business operations and revenue while we provide up-to-date digital marketing expertise.
But we want you to win! To do that, we’re going to work with you, so you understand how social media marketing, paid ads, and SEO is helping your bottom line. We don’t believe in taking hostages in our digital marketing or web design process. We’re transparent and want you to be involved in the process every step of the way.
- We’re Ready to Talk
Say goodbye to unresponsive and flaky agencies. Many of our clients have been burned by agencies that aren’t responsive or transparent enough in their process. Don’t let them waste your time anymore. We’re only a quick phone call or email away during regular business hours.
If you prefer to talk in person, we can do that too. Let’s have our consultation face-to-face! We also have a physical storefront in Buford, Georgia so any of our customers can come to visit us.
