How long will it take before my site is completed?
Generally, the entire project takes about 1 week or less for The bronze package and 1.5-2 weeks for Silver & Gold packages from start to finish.
Do I need to pay all at once?
No, we require a down payment according to your specific contract terms. The login and password to your site Admin is released to you once you are satisfied with the look and feel of your site (within reason of course!), and final payment has been made.
Can I make a lot of money with my site?
Amount of profit obtained from sales is a function of how hard you work at marketing your site and converting sales. You are starting up a new online business. It may be a “business in a box” service, however you ARE taking on a new business, and with that, comes hard work. Marketing the site and obtaining market share is everything, just like any other business, online or off.
What if I have questions about my site? Where do I go?
Your site will operate off the Adult Shopping platform and a Hybrid off the Adult Shopping platform and WordPress (Where resources are WIDELY available)
Do you provide SEO?
No. We do not offer search engine optimization for our clients at this time. We avoid recommending search engine optimizers because of their return instability and product inconsistency. We can help optimize for SEO, but due to the search engine algorithms changing, we only get involved to a small degree.
How well do your past client’s websites perform?
All clients possess different work ethics, while utilizing diverse marketing strategies. Again, the amount of profit obtained from sales is a function of marketing your site and converting sales.
Are there any marketing strategies you would suggest?
We suggest viral marketing or social network marketing techniques coupled with SEO techniques, such as keyword placement and Meta tags. We can assist you with the layouts of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (Headers/Profile Images) to make the pages look graphically enhanced.
What is an affiliate site? Are you an affiliate site?
An affiliate site is a site that does not belong to you. You simply drive traffic to the affiliate site and reap a percentage of the profits. Affiliate sites are owned by another entity and are not your property to manage in any way.
We are NOT an affiliate program. We offer you a business of your very own. You are free to set prices, product availability, shipping preferences, and marketing strategies any way you choose. The website is 100% yours at the end of the project.
Are there any other expenses along with paying AdultDesignsDirect.com for its services?
Yes. Hosting (Around $20.00/mo for wordpress platforms (Silver/Gold) and Domain Name purchase (Around $11.00-$14.00).
It is the Client’s responsibility to secure hosting and merchant accounts at their expense.
Are there dropship fees?
No. We do not have dropship fees.
Are there any other services out there like yours?
Not that we have seen as far as value or amount of products you will be a host to. The closest services to what we have seen are above the $10,000.00 per site range. If you see pricing such as $50.00 or $100.00 or $500.00 for a similar site, it is simply a lie. There are holes in whatever service that would be. We have a design team led by Individuals who have over 20 years of design experience that will be working on your site. You will also have a team of IT professionals who are the best in the business.
Can I pay off my site payment as my site generates income?
No. We do not offer credit terms. Thank you for understanding. All Invoices must be satisfied first, before the Login and Password to the site Admin are distributed.
Can I consult with you over tips and tricks of how to get my site more customers/traffic?
We are not a consulting firm. As the site is being built, we will include tools that we have seen create exposure to give you a head start, but we are not a consulting/marketing firm.
What happens when my site receives an order?
Are there any monthly or additional fees to pay to Adult Designs Direct?
No! We do not charge monthly or yearly fees.
Who do you recommend for Hosting Services on the Silver and Gold packages?
We recommend Hostwinds Hosting. Here is the link: https://www.hostwinds.com/912.html
What is involved in site maintenance?
Your site should be autopopulated with the latest and greatest! No work on your end! That is the best part!
Will my site be operational throughout database or site updates?
Yes, your site will be fully operational throughout any database or site update.
Who will supply, distribute, and Dropship products for me?
Do I need to be technically advanced to own a website?
No, you do not need advanced technical knowledge, but you do need to be willing to learn about the order process of your site, WordPress parameters (In the case of Silver and Gold packages), and marketing your site in an Internet environment.
How can I reach you?
You may call or email via the Contact Us Form. Our phone number is 845-632-3240. Emails can be sent to email@example.com. Inquires are always answered within 24 business hours (if not immediately).
Why do you shy away from using Godaddy Services and suggest others do the same (In event of Silver or Gold packages)?
There are a number of reasons. In the past we have installed WordPress on godaddy servers and the massive database loads EXTREMELY slow on them. What the reason is, we will never know. It seems like the servers are entirely too shared out on the shared plans, and even on dedicated servers the database still loads slow. Also is the issue of COMPLETELY unnecessary sales pressure. We have issues navigating a site that is essentially one giant ad targeting people who they make feel that they NEED things, even things that they already have. You already get emails with your site, no reason to upsell emails and confuse the user into thinking they don’t already have email accounts. They also do not have a common cpanel like other hosts have, theirs is specific to them and is insanely difficult to navigate. Godaddy has a huge campaign running, not because they offer the best service and plans, but by selling uninformed users a sale that they didn’t really need, which generates more money to run that campaign.
