Quick Tips For Small Businesses
Website Questions and Answers
We have been in the website business for quite a while now. As the years go by and technology and marketing techniques change, we still get the same questions from clients interested in our web services. So we decided to share the top 10 website questions.
10. WHY NON-PROFITS AND SMALL BUSINESSES?
We get the majority of our business from the referrals from our existing clients. We have built a reputation in the startup, small business, and non-profit communities as the go-to trusted web design company that can get the job done within their budget.
9. DO I NEED TO BE A PROGRAMMER TO WORK WITH MY NEW SITE?
No programming experience required! You don’t even have to be geeky or nerdy. If you know how to use Microsoft Word, then you know how to manage your website. It’s that easy.
8. HOW WILL I KNOW HOW WELL MY WEBSITE IS DOING?
We have built in web statistics that will give you a graphical report on how many visitors are coming to your site, what pages they are going to, what part of the US they are in, what type of device they are using, and much more. You will be provided with more than enough information (reports) to keep you informed regarding the performance of your website.
7. DO I REALLY NEED AN ADVANCED WEB SITE?
No. You do not NEED an advanced website, but it will benefit your business or organization to have one. For businesses, it will increase your potential customers’ ability to find you on the internet. If your competition has a good website, then Google, Yahoo, and Bing are working hard on pushing traffic to their website instead of yours. For Non-profits, it will make managing events, contributions, and volunteers much easier. It will also give you the credibility that can increase donations received. What is the cost for you NOT having an appropriate online presence?
6. CAN YOU CREATE A CUSTOM FEATURE?
Yes. Most clients need (or would like) a custom functionality that is specific to their business. We offer custom programming that makes our clients’ business ideas become reality.
5. CAN YOU TAKE OVER AN EXISTING WEB SITE?
Indeed! Over half of our web projects are redesigns. The story of a church friend of someone’s second cousin who designed their website is all too common. The good news is that we have provided cost effective solutions for those clients when they are ready to upgrade.
4. WILL MY WEBSITE BE A CUSTOM DESIGN?
Each web project idea is birthed from collaborating with our clients. We then turn their ideas into reality. All of our work is custom designed to have its own unique look.
3. CAN I START WITH SOMETHING SIMPLE?
Of course! Many of our clients start simple, then gradually improve their website as their business grows. Building your online presence is an ongoing process. The success of your website depends on the foundation you lay in the beginning.
2. WHO CAN MAKE CHANGES AND UPDATES TO THE SITE?
Anyone. This question is similar to question #9. We use the platform referred to as WordPress. It provides a seamless interface that will allow you to easily manage your website. If you do not have the time to manage it, we offer management services to do the work for you.
1. HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST ME?
Most web design companies charge thousands of dollars to create an advanced custom design website. Most small businesses and Non-profits do not have a budget for web design. That is why we create a solution to offer the same level of service at over half the price by eliminating a lot of overhead cost to us. You can get your custom design advanced website starting at $650 ($565 for Non-profits).
