Small Business Web Sites
In today’s on-line world every small business needs an online presence. You are not only competing with the guy across town, in today’s cyber world, but you are also competing with the business across the country or on the other side of the globe. When someone is looking for a product they often go to their computer to search for it. Fewer people each year subscribe to newspapers, so they don’t see your print advertisement. Newcomers to the area often don’t know where to go for goods and services. A business website can help with all these issues. You can tell the world what you offer and how to get to your location to purchase your products and services. I know many of the manufacturer of products have shared websites many times at no charge. However, your business gets lost among the thousands of other business that manufacturer sells to. Suppose you want to run a special sale, then you would have to have to print flyers, and that can cost of hundreds of dollars. After the sale period, the money you spent is just thrown in the trash. With a website all you have to do is put the information on your website and then you are done. It cost you little to nothing and for the next sale just put the product or service up again on your site. No printing cost, no wasted paper, best of all no printing or advertising cost. If you still want to run a printed add then you can reference to your website, where your customers may find other products or services to purchase.
Want to sell directly on-line? I can set up an e-commerce site for you. Your customers can order and pay on line. It will calculate taxes and shipping and accept payment by all major cards and checks. In addition you have a record of those who ordered from you and you have a customer mailing list you can use when you offer a new product or service specials.
After you pay for your site design, you only pay for updates to your site and hosting fees which can be as low as $5 a month. If you want to learn how to update your own site, I can teach you how and you can save even more.
