Do you need a website? Have you researched which features you need and which ones you don’t? Are you confident you know what price is fair?
I see entrepreneurs and small businesses get exploited every day by ambitious marketing and public relations boutiques. It’s become common for small businesses to pay tens of thousands of dollars for new websites, web copy, and SEO. For large corporations that are migrating and redirecting thousands of existing webpages, that makes sense. For small businesses that are struggling to get themselves on the first few pages of Google, it doesn’t.
What kind of websites do you build?
I build new sites with WordPress, a free and open-source content management system (CMS) that’s incredibly intuitive. It’s secure and updates automatically with the click of a button. Since you’re not licensing any software, you’re really just paying for my time and expertise. And because the CMS is so user-friendly, you should be able to make updates and edits by yourself, avoiding the annoying fees that are so prevalent with third-parties. I actually got into web development because I was tired of paying exorbitant fees for websites that never worked properly and programmers who were never accountable.
How do I get a website?
Contact me and I’ll help you buy a domain name, set up a hosting account, install WordPress, and configure your new website. You will supply the web copy prior to implementation. When your site goes live, it’s finished. Then I’ll show you how to login to WordPress and edit your site moving forward. I can usually turn it around pretty quickly if you have everything ready.
Is it really that easy?
That’s all you need to have a website up and running. It’ll be live and accessible to anyone with an internet connection. But if you’re serious about getting your name out there, you’ll want to integrate your site with Google. And it makes sense to also coordinate your message across social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and any other ecosystem that is pertinent to your business. Smart marketers go where their customers already are.
