We Will Provide You with as Much Help as You Want and Need so You can Focus on Your Business and Making More Money!
Some business owners want "hands-on" when it comes to maintaining their websites, and some prefer to do what they do best and hire us as affordable experts so they can be free and "hands-off".
We will work with you either way. You can subscribe to our super-easy website editor (CMS) or you can phone in or email us your website change requests.
We leave it up to you.
We Can Take Your Ideas and Turn them into Beautiful Realities
Our website design platform uses our own themed technology which is completely versatile. It is not a static and clumsy "templated" solution! We can design your site to look like anything you want and you will still be able to edit it using our website editor (CMS - Content Management System) if you want.
If you have a two or three example websites that you can point us to and can tell us what you like about them, we can incorporate any element you see in them into your own website. Note: we don't COPY code, we re-write it so it is clean and compliant (and NOT stolen!)
On the other hand, if you have no idea what you want, we can put something together for you with what we have gleaned from our phone consult and show it to you.
Custom Programming? No Problem!
Our team includes expert programmers and coders! If it has anything to do with website development or internet marketing, we can do it and we can do it well!
Most websites are "brochure-type" sites that include information: images and text descriptions. Brochure sites also typically make use of web forms. Web forms are easily included in our brochure site designs.
Many brochure sites also include simple shopping methods as well. Our CMS includes a super-easy to use online store at no additional charge that authorizes via PayPal.
However, your site may need or may be made more effective by using custom programming.
We can integrate custom programming into your site, and you can still maintain it (if you want to) using our awesome, super-duper easy CMS (Website Editor).
Our Website Designs work on All Devices! (Including Android Smart Phones and iPhones)
Do you already have a website? Great!
Is it responsive to mobile devices (iphones and android phones)? No? Not so great.
Nowadays, nearly 50% (or 70% or more for hospitality sites and restaurant sites) of your users will be trying to access your website using their smart phone.
This is really bad news for you if your site is not "mobile ready", because nearly half of them will immediately click away if your site does not offer them a good experience.
If you site is NOT MOBILE RESPONSIVE, it needs to be redeveloped. FAST! Let us help!
Moblie-responsive sites are not simply visible on a smart phone, the layout and function changes for phones to ensure that users have a great experience.
Check out this site on your smart phone if you have one and see how it responds!
So, What's Better than a Portfolio? A Free, Custom Website Demonstration!
We've created LOTS of websites. We could show them to you. However, we'd rather show you YOUR SITE instead. That's right, we will create a custom website demo (YOUR WEBSITE) for your review.
If you like it, you buy it.
If you don't like it, then walk away! 100% Risk Free.
Why Do We Do it This Way?
Because we used to do it another way, and it didn't work so well for us! We used to do a consult, draft a contract, accept a down payment and then present the site to our clients. This worked ok most times, but sometimes we thought we did EVERYTHING that they asked for and the still did not like it.
So, we found a better way.
1) No money down. We don't even ask for billing information until AFTER you have seen your site and tell us you WANT to buy it.
2) No contracts.
3) We still do a free consult first. We can't hope to make something CUSTOM that you want without talking to you about what you want.
4) You tell us how much you want to spend on your site, - we don't care that much about the amount of your budget, we just need to know what it is so we can adjust your website demonstration accordingly.
We do sites starting at $100. We've done LOTS of sites for $500 or so and many sites for a few thousand dollars. It all depends upon what you want.
We need to know if what you want fits realistically into your available budget.
Most often, we have discovered that our clients are willing to spend quite a bit more than what we charge.
5) We'll create your demo for your review and go over it with you. You may want a few minor adjustments. We can do most of these WHILE YOU ARE ON THE PHONE!
If we totally miss the target (you honestly don't like the demo at all), we'll take responsibility for it, so don't worry. You're not on the hook. We can't say, "You're off the hook! ... because you were NEVER on the hook to begin with.
You started with no risk and ended that way. We wish you well and no hard feelings!
6) However, if you are like the overwhelming majority of those that we create custom demos for, you will love what you see and will be surprised that it cost you less than what you have budgeted!
7) We'll accept a down payment and complete your site, usually within 3-4 days and then we will require the balance payment.
What if What I Want Costs More Than What I've Got?
Easy payment plans to the rescue. If you really want the site, but it is outside of your ready cash, we are happy to offer you an easy payment plan.
All we ask is that you make as large a down payment as you can, and then YOU TELL US how you would like to pay off the balance. We want you to draft your own payment plan, KNOWING that you can fulfill it.
Hey, if it's not something crazy like, "I'll give you $100 down and $10 a month for 10 years", we'll more likely than not accept it.
We'd rather leave it up to you so you can comfortably pay for it.
If you can pay within 90 days, we'll do it for you same as cash!
Will Your Site Be Search Engine Friendly?
Yes. Every site that we develop includes traditional, on-site HTML markup that includes conventional, acceptable (white hat SEO) search engine optimization.
Search Engine Optimization (also called SEO) is so much more complicated now than it used to be, but the basic elements of good, on-page SEO have not really changed.
If you are somewhat internet savvy, you may know the difference between "white hat" and "black hat" SEO. We only employ acceptable SEO practices. Results may not be as quick as trying to "fool" the search engines, but they will never get your site banned, either.
What is Meant by "On-site" and "Off-site" SEO?
To have good rank in search engines, the fundamental first is to have relevant content on your site that utilizes proper HTML markup and SEO practices. However, that is not enough to achieve good rank with search engines that yield results based upon complex indexing algorithms. (such as google)
There are external (or off-site) factors as well. In other words, content that is not on your website that in some way links back to your website has a lot to do with how highly your site is ranked in the organic search engine results pages.
Internet marketing is all-inclusive and refers to any type of marketing online including: advertising on other sites, article creation and distribution, pay per click advertising (search engines), directory listings, social media marketing, local search marketing (paid), email marketing and more.
We can advise you about what kinds of internet marketing would work well for your business and within your budget.
Local Search Marketing - Mobile Search Marketing
Local search marketing or mobile search marketing? They are essentially the same thing.
Local Search Part 1
Search engines know that over 40% of searches performed from desktop or laptop computers have local intent. This means that even if the searcher does not type in locality (city name, for example) as a part of the search string, they are still looking for local results.
Because of this, the major search engines have forged partnerships with traditional data aggregators because they have been collecting local business information long before search engines were created.
Search engine results pages now contain information from the search engine's indexes PLUS results pulled directly from data aggregators. There are several data aggregators in the USA. Among the more prominent are: infogroup, neustar (localeze), axciom, and factual.
Local Search Part 2
In addition to searches performed from traditional devices such as desktops, laptops and notebook computers, the mobile-enabled devices in use continues to grow each month.
Mobile-enabled devices are pads and smart phones (iphone and android phones).
When mobiles are being used to conduct search - and over 50% of ALL search traffic is mobile already, the dependence upon data aggregators becomes more prevalent. In fact, in most cases it becomes primary and traditional search engines become secondary.
Local Search Marketing is Imperative for Local Businesses
If your business is a local business and you are serious about having visibility in local search, you must participate in a local search marketing program. You are a local business if you publish a business location or if your market is your immediate city or county, for example.
If your business is strictly internet based and you are not dependent upon a local market(s), then local search marketing won't do much for you.
Basic Local Search Marketing Program
Our basic local search marketing program covers all the major data aggregators and is a great place to start. We also develop five additional keyword based pages for our client's websites as a part of the setup process for basic local search marketing.
Advanced Local Search Marketing Program
Our advanced Local Search Marketing Program covers the major data aggregators as well as feeding your business's citation or NAP (Name, Address & Phone Number ... plus more business info) to over 300 directories.
