We know you are busy running your business….let us be busy running your website.
Setting up your website is easy and pain free with us. Our straight forward and simple process will lead you from VISION to REALITY.
Consultation – Tell us about your business and your goals for your website. Are you looking for a static website with contact info, products, and services listed. Do you want to have a blog feature with constant updates? Twitter or Facebook pages? Do you need help setting up your social media presence? Are you on Google Maps? We will cover all of these topics during our initial consultation and answer any question you may have.
Questions to think about before your initial consultation:
- Do you already own a web address (domain name)
- What pages would you like on your site. I recommend looking at similar companies’ sites and seeing what you like and what you don’t like
- What service do you provide?
- What keyword would someone type into Google to search for you on the web?
- Gather images, photos, and logos for your company.
- Do you have any customer testimonials?
- Do you want social media integrated into your site? (Facebook & Twitter)
- Does your company already appear on Google Maps? Is the info listed correct?
Online Business Listings and Social Media Footprint Development -During this phase we will have already discussed your current online footprint presence. If you choose to develop this footprint yourself, we will point you in the right direction. If you are having us perform your Social Media Footprint Creation and Business Listing Footprint Creation, we will stay in contact with you so that when we are finished, you will have full access to these new resources.
Your domain name (web address) – You website’s address, or domain name, is an important component of your online footprint. Whether you already have a domain name, or don’t even know what one is, we will lead you through the process of choosing your website’s web address, acquiring it, and configuring it to point to your new website. We will show you how to research which domains are available and what steps to take to acquire it. (We can also do all of this for you as well) If you already have one, we will walk you through the steps to transfer ownership or change setting so that it points to your new website on our servers.
Features of your website – Select the look you want for your site. We have hundreds of designs and layouts for you to browse, but sometimes that is a little overwhelming. Based on your initial consultation, we will show you several recommendations that will best fit your vision. We will also discuss what pages do you want and have you start thinking about what you want to say on each page.
Multimedia – Images, logos, header art, fonts and colors you would like to see on your site. Videos, images, and audio is part of what makes a website more useful for your customers. We can show you how your multi media can become an integral part of your new website presence.
Content management control panel training – Once your website is complete, you have the choice of updating your content yourself, or having us perform content updates at your request. Either way, this will help your message stay relevant and fresh. We will train you to use the content management panel for easy and quick updates, corrections, special & alerts, or blog posts. We of course also offer content updates as a very reasonable paid service, if you don’t have the time or desire to do this yourself.
