Why should I create a website?
Times are changing; today just about everyone uses the web for news and specific information, to conduct business, or to contact and locate services. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunities this can bring you. Also, not only will your local exposure and brand awareness increase, now with a website you can reach a global market.
Will this cost me a lot of money?
First I can honestly say no. Don’t let sticker shock get to you, focus on the big picture. The amount of money you pay for a new website will be very small in comparison to the amount of new business and/or contacts you will gain from your new site.
What kind of things can I expect from having a website?
First is brand awareness; get your name or brand out there so you can be found. Secondly, earn trust and respect by being a leader in what you do. Offer up some good information, tips, ideas or products and people will come back to your site often. Not only will you gain traffic but you’ll create followers that will turn into contacts and/or customers.
What information do I need when starting a web design project?
First you’ll need to hire a good professional web designer or web design business to do the job. There are many to choose from and you can find them by doing internet searches. I recommend you look for a service or designer that you can trust. This can be hard but go with what you know. Browse their website and read up on them. If you feel they’re professional, personable and appreciable you have found a good match.
