businesses and organizations do not
understand the Internet or realize how a
website can help their business increase
revenue and productivity simply by being
online. Please review our web planning
checklist and f.a.q. below. Call or e-mail
you have any other questions.
(What we need from you)
A Domain Name
We will check the availability of the
name you choose at no charge. If
the name is available we can register it
for you (listing you as the owner).
Or you may already have a domain name
that you or someone else registered.
other websites for ideas only or
sketch out your own ideas
The layout and colors to use is an
important first step. The
additional pages of your website will
have the same look as your homepage
(colors, layout & logo, etc.) so
that your visitors will not become
confused. Easy navigation makes a
will your website accomplish
Do you want to sell gift certificates or
products online? Do you want a
website that is for informational
purposes only so that you can advertise
your text copy
Nobody knows your business better than
you do! Each page of your website
will need a few small paragraphs of text
for page content. Think like one
of your own customers! What are
they looking for? Your location
and hours are important. List all
of your services. List prices.
Let your visitors know how long you have
been in business and your experience
with that particular product or service.
If you are a restaurant owner, list all
of your menus online. This will
also help determine how many pages your
website will be. We can start
small and always add more pages at any
time as your business grows.
about other features you would like to
Do you want an online form that sends
the results of questions directly to
your email? Do you want to collect
your visitor's email addresses for a
information for us
We will need your logo, color choices,
font name(s), brochures, and any other
text information and photographs or
images that you would like to use on
your website. Or you can leave the
choices to us. Consider your
website as an online brochure for your
visitors. If you have digital
photos you can send them to us by e-mail.
We also have access to thousands of
stock photos online.
- Why do I need a Web Site?
There are many reasons for a business to
advertise online. To network, to
establish a presence, to serve your
customers better, to make all of your
business information available, to
heighten the public interest, to sell
things, to make pictures and sound
available, to answer frequently asked
questions, etc. Every day, more and more
people are looking on the Internet to
find goods and services, not only
nationally but locally as well. Your
customers expect you to be there and you don't want to let them down
especially if you know your competitors
are already there!
- Is it worth the money?
Website design does not have to be
expensive & it is actually the most economical means of
advertising today! You can have
the information on your website changed
quickly and easily and 90% of the time
we will change it the same day that you
request the change. You cannot do
that with print advertising. We
care about each and every business and
we make sure we give them MORE than
their money's worth!
What kind of information should I have
on my website? Think like one of
your own customers! What do you
think they would like to see? You
may want to ask them. We think the
most important things are: Hours,
Location (Map), Frequently Asked
Questions, Testimonials, Online Menu (for
restaurants), how long you have been in
business and basically anything else of
importance about your business.
Can you take photographs for me?
are a great addition to any web page.
We regret that photographs must be
provided by our clients. We'll be
happy to scan any of your photographs
although we do prefer digital copy. We also have access to thousands of
stock photos online.
How long will it take before my website
will depend on our workload and how
large your website is. We will let
you know when you contact us to discuss
your website. Typically we can
finish a 5-10 page website in a week or
less provided that we have received all
of the information we need from you.
- How will my customers find my
When we are finished with your website,
we make sure all the keywords & page
titles are in place and
submit your site to the major search
engines. You can also view our
list of Tips
on How To Promote Your Own Website Free
Your link will also appear in our
portfolio and on our community website.
- What if I don't want to sell products
all businesses have products to
understand this and we encourage our
customers to start out slow and and add
more later if desired. E-Commerce is a
terrific tool but it is not for
everyone. Several businesses just
desire an advertising presence on the

is bringing your business to the
consumer's doorstep so that your
customers will know where to find you
and how to call you. Your website is working for you 24 hours

name is still available. Let us check

- I only do business locally.....Do I
still need a web site?

looking for you online. When we design &

community website. Your
business will receive that local
exposure it needs & deserves!
