Would you like a web site of your own but are afraid of the cost? For less than the price of a phone book ad (and with a much bigger audience and longer shelf life) you can have an entire web page of your own, sitting on millions of local cell phones. Whether to advertise your business, your latest invention or simply a place to share recipes. You CAN have a site of your own - and for much less than you'd think.
Call or write now (before someone else takes your name) and I will be happy to explain how easy it is to get started. See below for an estimate of the cost.
It's Easy As 1 - 2 - 3Step 1. Choose a website name ($9.99 - $29.99) Step 2. Add a web page - start with just a single page + a custom email account. Step 3. Send me content and I design the site to your needs (starting as low as $100.)
That's right! Have your own website up and running for under $150*. If that sounds unbelievable, it's because unlike most other web design services, I do not add any markup to the actual costs from the web provider. I only ask for money for my design work. The time I spend setting up the service for you is free. So I only make money if you are happy with my work and hire me to design more.
* Full disclosure, there will be many opportunities for spending more money on your website. I know businesses that spend thousands of dollars every month. You could add more pages, buy optimization tools to drive more traffic to your site, add an online store and a shopping cart feature to process electronic payments, but generally these are not needed and I will not push them on you. In fact, I don't even sell them. If desired they can always be added later... after your site starts generating income.
Note: I've created dozens of unique websites. Because the samples above were created as subpages on my own website, they are constrained by the template built for this site. Thus the banners, headers and footers are the same for each. They simply give you an idea of what can be achieved. Once you purchase your own web site, dozens of different design templates can be chosen. I will work with you on selecting the best look for your particular needs. Below is an example of an independent completed site I created.
But isn't my business too small to need a website???NO! Do you advertise in the phone book or in the weekly shopper? Do you use mailers? Well I have news for you. No one is reading those anymore. They use their computer or smart phone.
But don't I need a big fancy website??? NO! All you need is one page. On that page you give your name, address, phone number, hours of business, and a link to a Map for driving directions. Then describe what you have to offer. Finally, add a few pictures. That is all you need to draw lots of traffic. All for less than the cost of an advertisement.
Who says I need more business? I'm already too busy. Okay, so it sounds like you could probably use more time to service all your customers. Well how much time do you or your secretary currently waste on the phone answering questions like, "How late are you open?" , "How do I get there?" or "Do you offer...?" With a website, you get only serious, knowledgeable customer calls. Plus, you can drive their questions to your mailbox, to answer at your convenience.
Can I really have a website with only one page? YES! Look at this one page and how much information is delivered. You've learned everything you need to know to make your decision from just this one page. To be honest, Sweetg.com started as one single page, and as I saw the response it got, it just grew from there.
Would you consider trading for services rather than cash? YES! You will still be responsible for any website fees from your the internet service provider, but I could be willing to trade my labor for your services.
Can you help with a blog? YES! Check out this blog I created for the Open World Conference in San Francisco ---> http://mwruggersworld.blogspot.com/2005_09_01_mwruggersworld_archive.html What else can you help with to update my promotions and improve my business appearance? HOW ABOUT: Custom Business Cards, stationary, brochures, or menus. I can print them for you, or give you the template to update and print them yourselves. Not only does this enhance your company's appearance and improve sales, but it can even save you money.
Or have you considered a Company Newsletter? It can require minimal work and for little more than the cost of postage (free if only emailed) can gain added respect for you and your business. It helps build customers and develope leads, as well as retaining existing customers. And don't forget, as Sy Syms always said, "An educated consumer is the best customer."
