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).

How Unique is Your Business?

All business owners like to believe that their business is in someway unique or unlike any other business. At its core though, how different are small businesses really?

Adding SPICE to your ‘Contact Us’ page

When you want to find out where a company is located or how to reach a live person by phone or email, the Contact Us page is an intuitive first stop. But if your online encounters are much like everyone else’s, then you run into a lot of boring and redundant Contact Us pages.

Make Repeat Customers

You need repeat customers to have a successful long-term creative business.

Repeat customers are the easiest customers. Think about it, they know your product or service.

What’s the BIG FUSS about WordPress!

After all — you have to pay for most good things in life. The chair you’re sitting in, the operating system your computer is running on, many of the apps you use, and so on. WordPress is powerful enough to run just about any website you could ever dream of, and yet it is available to you free of charge.

Show Your Logo Some Love

Customers connect with memorable logos. Your logo represents your company and defines your brand. Creating a good logo takes time, a solid process and maybe even a few revisions before you have the logo you really love. It’s definitely worth the time and effort to create a logo your customers will remember.

“Branding” Your Business

Do increased profits sound good to you?

The Institute of Customer Service has conducted research showing that companies with a reputation for service excellence have on average a 24% higher net profit margin than same-sector rivals.

Online Videos, A Hot Commodity

I have a question for you. Would adding video (infomercials and video blogging) to our online marketing solutions be beneficial to our clients? Many of us linger on YouTube longer than we expect.

Logo Design Best Practices

A well-considered business logo design succinctly and accurately represents the promise, personality, and product of the organization. A logo serves as the face of a company, and getting it right makes all the difference in the world for achieving the recognition and marketing position you want.
