We’ve recently begun offering starter websites for small businesses who are just starting out, or who want to get online in a fast and affordable way. As a new business, getting online and being visible in search engines like Google is your best bet for finding customers.
Did you know: 97% of searches for products & services begin online?
Many local business owners think that advertising in the local paper or the Yellow Pages will give them all the visibility they need. But, think about how many ads you see every day.
- How many billboards do you pass on the way to the office?
- How many ads really stand out for you in a local paper that is full of them?
- When is the last time that you searched for a product or service in the Yellow Pages?
The marketplace is changing. Small business owners are making the shift to online marketing. Traditional advertising costs are extremely high when compared to online marketing with a website. Just one ad in the local paper can cost over $400, and the Yellow Pages? Forget about it. $1500 for a tiny ad amongst hundreds of competing ads – how can that be effective? That’s where websites for small business come in.
Google is where it’s at now. Savvy small business owners are looking for ways to get their business online in a fast and affordable way. Our new starter websites for small business are perfect for small business owners. For just $47 per month ($197 sign up fee), you can have:
- A professional website design that uses your colours and logo
- An easy to update website that you can manage yourself, no IT guy required!
- Hosting, maintenance & all the no-fun technical “stuff” taken care of
- Help with updates, if you don’t have time to do them yourself (additional $30 per month fee)
- A website that’s ready for mobile, search engines and social media integration
- Personalized service & marketing tips to help you grow
We love small businesses – we have one ourselves! Our favourite projects over the years we’ve been in business have been with small business owners who have turned their passion into a way to make a living. We love the excitement and dedication that it takes to start a small business, and we’re passionate about helping these businesses grow.
Our websites for small business are designed to meet the needs of the startup business owner, or those who want to take their business to the next level. When you start a business, you’ll usually find that most of your first customers come from word of mouth. You can enhance the power of word-of-mouth marketing and kick it up a notch, by getting a website for your small business, so that interested customers have a place to find out about what you do. It’s easy to share websites with friends through email and social media, so that word of mouth network you’ve begun to build can grow with the help of your website.
