What can a website do for me?
A website can introduce your product or service to millions of people that you might not otherwise be able to reach. All with very low overhead costs to your business.
Second, customers can browse your products or services from the comfort of their own home any time, day or night. Your website is a brochure of your company or service. This brochure introduces potential customers without the high-cost overhead of what would normally take a store front or sales staff as well.
So no matter what type of business you are in, the cost versus value return of a website can be a low cost but huge value asset to your business or company.
Looks don't matter as long as it works, right?
When you receive a visitor to your site, they will instantly perceive the quality of your services or products. The first impression to potential customer is crucial and depends strongly on the appearance of your website.
A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing and easy to navigate. You are marketing yourself and your business to the world over the Internet and it is important to show your best.
I want an effective website, where do i start?
The four easy steps we provide below will guide you in the direction of a professionally designed, developed and marketed Web site.
Step One: Domain Name (URL) Registration -- This is the address people will use to access your Web site (www.yourcompany.com). Once you have determined that the URL you wish to use is available, the cost to register a name is anywhere from $8.00 to $35.00 per year. A domain name needs to be renewed every year.
Step Two: Design of the Web Site -- This is where the look, feel, and content of the Web site are determined and created.
Step Three: Hosting Your Web Site on a Web Server -- This is basically where you rent space on a computer that is always connected to the Internet. Price will vary, depending on the amount of disk space you will have and the connection to the Internet.
Step Four: Marketing Your Web Site -- You should be thinking about the marketing of your Web site as it is being designed. The content of the site needs to reflex the search terms if you want your site to appear on search engines.
