Having a business website is one of the smartest things you can do to grow your business. Nowadays, businesses aren’t even considered “real” unless they can be found online! Seriously, most people use the internet for absolutely everything. So if, for example, a potential customer wants to find out your location or your hours, they’re going to go online to find out. If you don’t have a website, they’ll go to someone who does. Not to mention finding you to begin with. When people need a service or product of any kind, they search the internet first. If you’re not on the internet, you won’t be found. It really is that simple.
But when people ask the question, “How to make a website for my business,” I always cringe a little because “making a website” is easier said than done. You need to not only create a website, but make it functional, user-friendly, and NOTICEABLE BY GOOGLE and other search engines.
I’m a Website Designer and an Affiliate Marketer. I make my living online. You can view a few of the websites I’ve created HERE. I offer basic business websites at an affordable price. Listed below is exactly what’s included.
Basic Business Website – $500
Home Page – Address, phone, hours, map/directions, services.
About Us Page – History of your business, your mission, number of years in business, etc.
Contact Us Page – Address, phone, fax, email.
Blog Page – This is where you can post upcoming events, sales, etc.
“Find Us on Facebook” Button – (I’ll create Facebook page for you if you don’t have one)
Social Media Buttons – (for people to share your website on Facebook, Twitter, etc)
About Website Hosting – You will be purchasing your own domain (usually less than $15). A domain is your “www….” address. Once the website is created, you will have the option to have the website hosted anywhere you like (hosting means a company who maintains your website, keeps it visible and functioning on the internet). Or I will host the website for you for $15 per month.
Subscribe to My Mailing List Pop-Up – Lets you create a mailing list of followers who will automatically get any new posts/blogs you do on your website.
Website Updates, Posts, Etc. – If you’re new to having a website, I can offer help in learning how to do blog posts, how to add new products or services to your website, how to announce events or sales, etc. Or I can offer my services (starting at $25 per month) depending on the level of activity, to do these things for you. Don’t fret about this – your website will be beautiful and functional just as it is – it’s optional whether you want to add to it in the future.
I require 50% before work begins, then 50% upon completion of the website. I accept cash, checks and major credit cards.
