What can a web site do for my business?

It’s different for each business. In general, a web site can reach millions of people who might not otherwise become familiar with your business. Customers can view your products, services, or message from the comfort of their own home. No matter what type of business you own, there are ways to grow and generate income on the web. Recent research has shown that the majority of consumers search for a business online before they open their local Yellow Pages. If that’s so, small businesses like yours can gain exposure even within their local communities by having a web site.


Why does web site design matter?

When visitors come to your site, they instantly perceive the quality of your services or products. Their first impression depends on the design - the look, feel, and content of your web site. You are marketing yourself and your business to them, so it is important to look your best. A consistent presentation of each and every page of your site instantly gives a potential customer the impression of quality, and the feeling that you care enough about them to present your business in a way that is easy for them to use. You can keep visitors interested enough to explore your site if it is appealing and easy to navigate. There are many individual elements that go together to create a quality design, which reflects your business in the best possible way. A good design will lead your visitors through your site like a tour guide, explaining your products and services, or establishing your message, and ultimately help them decide to make a purchase or take an action.

What else is necessary besides a good design?

Besides the design phase, there are three main parts to a design project:

  1. Domain Name Registration: This is the universal remote locator (url) or the web address people use to access your web site (www.yourcompanyname.com). Once we determine that the domain name that you want is available, the cost to register a name is about $18.00 per year.
  2. Web Server Hosting and Set Up: Your server is where your site ‘lives’ on a host system that is always connected to the Internet and serves your web site to anyone who wants to see it. Prices for hosting vary, depending on the amount of disk space your site needs. Our hosting services start at under $10 per month on a server that is large enough for most small business sites. Web sites with e-commerce or a large collection of images require more disk space at a slightly higher monthly fee.
  3. Search Engine Optimization: I consider the promotion and indexing of your web site while it is being designed. The content of each web page needs to reflect the appropriate search terms for your site so in the final phase, I add keywords, page descriptions and other code to your pages; you don’t see this source code, called meta data, but Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines reply on it.
