More than just a Blog:
Small Business Website
You’ve started your business and you’re ready to invest in a website but you don’t have a ton of money to spend right now.
You want a strategic website that fits your overall business goals and speaks to your clients needs. A website that will actually help your customers find YOU!
You tried creating a site on your own, but the design and tech options are just so overwhelming, there are too many choices and it makes your head spin.
You don’t have the time to research every variable to make sure you are selecting the right one. You need the help of a website pro, someone who can make smart recommendations and help you make the right decisions.
You understand that this is an investment in your future success and you are ready to take your business to the next level and start attracting exactly the types of clients you want to work with.
Your website is usually a client’s first point of contact with you and sometimes it may be the only one before they make the decision to buy or not. It needs to be a strong asset that communicates your value and describe how you can solve their problems.
You want to make a smart investment in your most important business asset so you can stop worrying that you look like an amateur.
Wouldn’t it be great to have confidence in the digital image you present to your clients? To not let your image hold you back from going after the opportunities you really want?
Imagine what it feels like to see new subscribers added to your mailing list, knowing that your blog is making you more visible with each new post you publish!
Your website can be making sales for you 24 hours a day, talking to your clients any time they’re ready and when you aren’t available.
You’re ready to take your website to the next level so your business can grow to meet your goals.
You’ll feel confident that your website reflects your professionalism and experience. You can sit back and enjoy . . . .
You can have this – whether you are just starting out or planning to take your business to the next level. You don’t need to spend a fortune on a website that looks professional and is both beautiful and effective.
I’m a website designer that works with clients who understand the importance of a professional website – at every stage of their business. My clients want a clean, fresh look but may not know where to begin.
I help you determine what you really need in a website and start with a site that will grow with your business so you don’t have to start from scratch later on.
When you choose the Business Startup Website Package
- Your website and blog will be built on a strong foundation that will grow with you and your business.
- Clients will be so impressed with your professionalism, they’ll never imagine that you might be just getting started.
- Your website will work for you to answer client questions and provide them with valuable information before you even talk with them.
- You’ll have a well- structured blog platform so you are ready to publish and share your message with the world.
Here is exactly what the Business Building Website Package Includes:
Questionnaire and Initial Consultation
Your website is a digital representation of you and you only get one chance to make a first impression so we want it to be a great one. We’ll talk about you and your business to better understand your goals and personality so the website you end up with will be a true reflection of your business.
Strategy and Planning Session
Your website will become a 24 hour salesperson for your business to speak to clients when they are looking for information. We’ll talk about how you relate to your clients and what they are looking for, so we can create a website that will be focused on what you do and effective in growing your mailing list and increasing sales.
Homework, Checklists, and Cheat Sheets
As soon as your project is scheduled, you’ll receive your homework assignments. YOU are the key to the success of your new website, but I’m here to help along the way in every way I can. I’ll provide you with a set of checklists for everything including logos, login information, images and page content. A content planner and schedule will help you gather or create all the copy and images to keep your project on schedule.
Design and Approval Process
Your website is a digital representation of you. We’ll utilize a proven design framework and template to fit your needs so it won’t be a cookie cutter design. Built in approval milestones will make sure we stay on track and you know exactly how your project is progressing.
Training and Support
Once your website has been launched, it doesn’t mean we are finished. We’ll schedule an online training session to go over the administrative side of your site and give you a basic overview of how your site works and any special features. You’ll also receive a “just for you” project close-out packet that describes the care and maintenance of your new website. This will provide you with important information on how to use all the special elements built into your website as well as how to keep things running smoothly and protect your site from unwanted security issues.
You can finally feel confident that you have a website that truly reflects the work you do and the results you can deliver.
