FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Simple Straight Forward Answers
What is the number 1 reason I should use Launchpad Legal Marketing?
We combine all essential functionality needed for your website. You do not have to keep track of your website builder/manager, hosting company and domain registrar. We are one company and a single point of contact for everything related to your website.
What if I already have a website?
No problem, we can either develop a brand new design to replace it, or depending on your current configuration, we can update and maximize the look of your current one.
From start to finish....How long until my website is live?
As a worst case scenario, we try to launch your new website within 30 days. Often times it is a lot sooner, but because we present and obtain approval from you each phase, it can run all the way to deadline to ensure you have the exact website you want.
My new website, the content, the pictures...Do I own it?
It is all yours. Everything we purchase is in an account we set up for you. This includes the design elements, pictures and anything else. Licenses are all in your name. We don’t pin you down with anything.
I've seen hosting for as low as $20/month...What makes your subscription cost more?
Often times hosting that cheap is simply that…hosting. When you add on SSl certificates for encryption (an internet standard), malware and virus scanning, cloud back-ups and other features you will get well beyond that price.
Also, those hosting plans do not include daily manual review of your website. Aside from our daily cloud back-ups, included SSL certificates, full suite of premium software integrations and more…we also have a real person check the vitals of your website each and every day. They make sure that the back-ups ran and synced, that software is up to date as well as front-end functionality is in place.
While our plans are not the cheapest, it would be hard for you to find a package similar to what we provide, and if you do, it won’t be cheap.
How often will my rate be increased?
We are a firm believer in easy pricing. That means your rate will NEVER be increased. As long as you’re a customer, your rate is the same.
How do you handle billing...when do I pay my bill?
All our payments are monthly recurring. Your invoice is automatically generated and debited from a credit or debit card of your choice once a month. Your first invoice starts after your website has launched.

Yes there is. A lot of clients have multiple websites and each additional is 50% off the subscription fee. You can choose any subscription level for each website and each one still gets the full list of features within that subscription level.
What happens if I want to cancel services?
No problem, we know that depending on your business circumstances you may want to go a different direction. If you do, everything we have done for you is yours. This means the website, any blogs/articles we’ve created as well as all digital licenses associated with your website. As long as your term is over, we can help you transition in any way possible.
Why do you charge a setup fee? What is that for?
No ploy here, our setup fee goes directly to all the digital licenses for design elements, images, software purchases and more that go into your website. The good thing is that you own them all. We purchase them all in your name and the licenses are only used on your website.
Is your hosting as good as if I were to purchase it myself?

Whats does "Daily Cloud Backups" mean?

If anything ever happens to your website, we can always revert back earlier in the day or beyond, depending on the subscription you have.
Are there website size limits...how big can my website be?

This could be as seldom ad once a month, or multiple times a week. No matter what you have the most up to date applications on your website possible.
