[fa icon="plus-square"] What ecommerce platforms do you work with?
Pretty much all of them. We tend to shy our customers away from open-source solutions since they can be insecure and easily hacked.

Our personal favorites are 3dcart, Bigcommerce, and Magento.

Each platform has it’s strengths and weaknesses. We can help you find the best solution for your business.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do you develop your own software?
Most of the time, we don't need to. However, we do write custom plugins and extensions for ecommerce platforms like Magento or WordPress sites when a client needs something unique.

Honestly, the wheel has been invented. In 99% of cases, there’s already something out there to fit your needs.

We’re great at creating solutions – so tell us what you need, and we’ll figure out how to do it. If it requires custom work, we can help you too.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do I need a Content Management System (CMS)?
Most of our clients do use a CMS for their website. However, it all depends on how often you will be updating your website. If you’re a plumber who wants to add a few testimonials and job pictures every year, then the additional expense isn’t worth it. You’d be better off paying someone like us 30-60 minutes a year to update your HTML site.

If you’re a large company with a lot of news, awards, events, and new products and services – then absolutely. A CMS will save you from paying a developer to do the work for you and you’ll be able to update your website whenever it’s convenient for you.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What CMS should I be using? WordPress? Joomla? Drupal?
Above all, we love WordPress. We’re not talking about WordPress.com – we’re talking about WordPress.org, a self-hosted open source CMS and blogging platform. WordPress has 1000s of plugins that can help make your website more interactive, and it allows for total customization of the design of your site. Additionally, it’s probably the easiest to use and most future-proof.

However, if you simply have to work with a different CMS, we work with all of them. From a development side, they are apples to apples to us…
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do I need to Blog?

About 5 years ago we'd have said no... But now its content that rules Google, and one of the best ways to increase your search rankings is by creating blog content.

To be effective you need to do it at least 4-6 times per month, so if you need help, that's where Meticulosity comes in. We offer full Inbound Marketing services and have quality US-based content creators that can help drive traffic to your site.

[fa icon="plus-square"] Where are your websites hosted?
Most of our ecommerce clients host with their platform providers. However, our HTML and WordPress-based websites are hosted on our really awesome server at Rackspace's datacenter in Austin, TX.

We have daily backups and our own dedicated firewall. Rackspace also offers some of the best customer service in the hosting industry, so if we have issues, they are extremely responsive.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Mobile apps are all the rage. Do I need one?
We hear this question a lot. In most cases, ABSOLUTELY NOT. If someone is trying to sell you one, they might be trying to take you for a ride.

Yes, there are almost a million apps out there, but about 20-30 of them actually get used. We can’t say who, but a certain large client of ours spent over $30k on an app and they’ve made about 9 sales with it in the last 2 years.

Apps make sense when they provide something better than a website. Often times, a mobile-optimized version of your website will return better results than an app ever would.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How much does a website cost?
The price of a website varies from project to project. Basic websites can run $3,000-$8,000 while complex ecommerce systems with multi-channel and 3rd-party integrations can run upwards of $100,000.

When we meet with you, we’ll discuss what your expectations and goals are, and help you find the right combination of features and design to meet your budget.

By the way, we never over-sell you. If you need a Chevy, we won’t try and sell you a Rolls Royce. It’s just not how we do business.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How much creative control do I have in my website design?
We will work with you to make sure you have as much or little control as you feel comfortable with. Believe it or not, we often have clients who simply don’t know much about the web and they trust us to take creative control. Conversely, we have clients who are very particular about their site and want us to tailor the design to their vision. Either way, it works for us. Our professional designers have years of big agency experience and will work with you to create the best website you can imagine.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Who will create text content for my website?
Most of the time, clients will provide content for their website since they know their business better then anyone. However, if you just don’t have the time, we offer professional copyrighting services.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Who owns my website?
You do. As soon as we receive your final payment, all rights are transferred to you. You can take your site and content at any time and move it to a different provider if you wanted to – we won’t try to stop you!
[fa icon="plus-square"] How long does it take to design a website?
The time it takes to complete a website varies from project to project. Less complex websites such as a 5-page “business card” site might take 3-4 weeks, but a complex ecommerce website with 3rd-party warehousing and CRM integration could take 6-8 weeks. Whatever the project, we’ll work with you to get your site up as fast as we can while still doing things the right way.

Often, the time it takes to launch a website is in the hands of the business owner or decision makers. If we provide you with website design concepts and it takes you 2 weeks to respond with your feedback, then the project has been delayed 2 weeks. We’re not saying you need to make hasty decisions, but if you have certain expectations for the launch of your website, then you’ll need to work with us to make decisions in a timely fashion.
 
[fa icon="plus-square"] Is Meticulosity a real word?
Yes! It’s one of 61 different words that end in “osity,” and it was actually the winning word of the 1950 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

According to Webster’s dictionary, meticulosity means strict attention to minute details or the quality of being meticulous. We think it really speaks to our mantra.

Other fun words that end in “osity” include hyperviscosity, scrupulosity, and anfractuosity!
[fa icon="plus-square"] Where did you come up with the name Meticulosity?
Actually, it all came from a very special mug. On Christmas eve 2009, Dave's wife brought home a mug she had received as a gift at school: a Starbucks Spelling Bee mug. On it was the word Meticulosity. Dave, who had always had plans to name a bakery Deliciosity (when he’s done with computers; he wants to bake the worlds finest cupcakes and brownies), knew instantly that Meticulosity was the brand name he had been looking for. He ran upstairs, checked GoDaddy, and registered every variation of Meticulosity there was.

It was a good Christmas that year.
