You just got your new logo design, the foundation of your business branding and marketing. Before handing out that first business card or brochure though, you need a Website. And as competition (in every industry) grows exponentially, your business will lean on it more and more to tell potential customers, "My stuff is better!"
Getting that message out and generating solid sales leads will be difficult and frustrating with a DIY Website design or overused template - they're both pretty easy to spot. My Website Design solutions are 100% unique - you'll stand out in a crowd of copycats - and just as important, can scale as your business grows.
The first step is Discovery - we talk ideas, your needs, products, target audience, domain name and hosting. Basically we get an understanding of the project basics and what to expect from each other.
Next I present you with a concept - it may be an illustration or single-page version of the Website. Just something to wrap our eyeballs around as you tell me what you like and don't like.
At this step a live version of the Website is available for you to interact with as a visitor might. Adjustments are made, then we rinse and repeat.
The last step is Deployment - your new Website goes live. Now start selling some stuff!
Too busy to manage your Website content?
I'm here to help.
Creating your Website content and publishing it for everyone to read, is as easy as typing. All the functionality you're accustomed to is at your fingertips to add text, links, photos, even a video!
You now have the freedom to manage who sees your content and when, all from one place.
Whether you just opened an auto repair shop or food shop, you need a quick and efficient way for customers to find you, and the Basic Package is that way. We start with a catchy domain name, establish Web hosting, then build your online presence. The Website landing page lets everyone know who you are, along with some contact information and details about your services.
Optional features can be added as needed.
This is how most small businesses start their comprehensive marketing strategy. The Website and physical storefront compliment each other, attracting more customers to both.
Do you have a specialty, such as photography or crafting? Does your company need to train customers about varied and often complex products? Does your organization need to provide compliance training or skill building? The Teach Online Package is a robust solution to satisfy almost any need for an engaging learning experience.
Regardless of how many products you have, the Storefront Package has the E-commerce components to manage your conversions and sales goals, all in one place. From Home page to Checkout, customize every aspect of your online store, providing customers a unique and frustration-free shopping experience.
You were there and watched it happen. Now what? The Content Management Package takes you from being at an exclusive event to sharing the experience online, even from your phone. Log-in to your Website, create a catchy title, craft an exciting story, place photos from every angle, and make it public.
This package is flexible enough for enhanced features, such as Event Planning, Image Galleries, even a Directory of businesses or people.
Short answer: "how much" depends on so many factors, it should be impossible for anyone to declare in one sentence, "Your new Website will cost this much..." Seriously though, if you went car shopping, you probably would be shocked if the sales person threw out a price immediately after introducing herself.
Long answer: Let's talk about...
Then I can provide a fair and reasonable quote.
This is difficult to answer when I don't know what they're offering, or what you're expecting to get. If you need a single-page Website, this might be just enough. However if you budgeted only that much for a Website you expect to grow with your business, you're in for a frustrating experience.
Whatever someone charges for Website design/development has to cover time to collaborate with you, 'sketch-out' a concept, then design, develop and deploy an online presence for your business. Your Website has to be found, it has to be engaging and it has to generate an e-mail, phone call or sale (sales lead). When you look at your Website as an expense instead of a long-term investment, it no longer holds any value, and 'going cheap' becomes easier to justify.
Successful businesses invest heavily in their Website for good reason; it's their most profitable advertising platform.
Nope, my quotes are detailed enough that you know exactly what you're paying for. Regardless of who you hire or how the fee is structured, you will have to pay for at least three things, some on an annual basis.
Something to be aware of though, a lot of companies offer 'packages' with all of these services under one fee - know exactly what you're paying for. Ask for details, specifically whether the Web hosting plan is on a shared system or private. There's a huge performance difference (and cost), which may affect how your Website performs as features are added and it attracts more visitors.
Another consideration is ownership - I can make suggestions and guide you through the process of domain registration and sensible Web hosting plans, but only you should pay for these services. I receive my share of phone calls from the friend who let the ex-friend (business partner) pay for the domain registration. That ex-friend still 'owns' the domain.
Absolutely! I offer Copywriting as a service, but would need to see your copy before providing a quote. This service includes grammar, sentence structure and readability improvements.
Ideally this is done in conjunction with Search Engine Optimization, to improve the readability and keyword density of your pages.
