We make it easy to find what you need
You want the biggest return on investment and it begins with the proper research, plan and strategy. Websites, Digital Marketing, Content Management and everything is extremely confusing. Let’s make it easy and clear that up for you.[/TS-VCSC-Icon-Box-Tiny]
Why do you need a website?
It allows your customers to easily find you and the value that you offer them. It removes the obstacle of making it difficult for your customers to find information about your business and share it with their friends and family. If someone is going to recommend your business to a friend and family, this allows you to easily and quickly connect with that friend and family.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) simply makes it easy for search engines to connect your website with people searching. It optimizes your website for search. It starts with keyword research to understand your business and how people search for yours and competitors and then it ends with optimizing in order for you to rank high on the search engine results page. (SERP).
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that makes it easy for anyone to edit, add and create online. Instead of worrying about writing in HTML and formatting, it allows editors and authors to simply login to their account and write a page, as if they were writing in Microsoft Word. There is more to it, there are tons of developers that make it even more powerful and create custom applications (or plugins) that can do anything from changing the appearance, to adding a custom calendar, to taking payments and making a shopping cart.
What does Responsive mean?
Responsive means that the website will adjust to display beautifully on any device and screen, either iPad, iPhone, Android, Laptop, Apple TV, etc. There is nothing more frustrating that not being able to view a website properly, and making the website responsive takes care of that.
How much would it cost to do this yourself?
The prices vary greatly depending on your goals and amount of effort, but expect anywhere as low as $10/month if you shop around and do a lot of it yourself.
If you want minimum effort & don't really care about driving traffic and just want a website up, you can get away with anywhere between $10 - 20/month with those drag and drop and template sites.
If you want to host, throw up WordPress, register the domain and set up e-mail, you can get away with about $120/year. This is the most cost effective but time consuming. If you go this route, look at our resource page and blog to cut that time in half.
What is Hosting?
Hosting refers to the server (basically a computer) that stores all the information about your website and lets anyone connect to your website. We use a cloud based server that is optimized for speed and 99.9% up-time. These are things you want to look for in a server.
What's a Domain Name?
This is what people type in to find you, the business in "www.business.com". We can get into the technical about domain name servers and how everything connects, but really all you need to know is that you need to purchase the domain name, and it costs anywhere from $12 if it isn't taken, all the way up to thousands for premiums. No we cannot hijack or hack a domain for you.
You should know everything before you buy, and this is why our process is fully transparent. We ensure there are no surprises to make this as painless as possible.[/TS-VCSC-Icon-Box-Tiny]
I don't have a website, how do I begin? What's the process?
We know you're busy and have a lot of stuff to do. We adapt our process around what works best for you. Whether it's filling out a formal questionnaire, setting up a meeting, sending us some sites you like, or just sending us your business information and let us do work, what works best for you. After, we will design the website, get feedback, tweek it, launch it and then that's when the optimizing/analytics comes in.
Do you offer any discounts?
We've been known to help out where we can. We are a Veteran owned and operated company, and we are here to serve you. If you are a veteran, need a site for a charity, cause, project, let us know and we will look forward to the opportunity to working with you.
What if you don't like the site?
There is a few options for you, either we will continue to make the changes until you do like it, we show you the results from increase traffic and customers, or we can always give you your money back.
Where are you located?
We are located in the Connecticut, the state that is sandwiched between New York and Massachusetts. Currently, our base of operations is in Woodbridge.
Will you own the website?
You will always retain 100% ownership of the domain name. If you want to move your website to a third-party company, we will give you a full backup of your website.
How long does it take to get up and running?
Depending on the information gathering process, we can set up a sneak peak in about a week, and have it up and running in 2 weeks. However, depending on the scope, it might run up to 3 weeks but we will keep you updated.
Why do you cost so much lower/higher than others?
Website design and hosting varies greatly, however the price that we have listed is priced competitively and because we leverage technologies such as WordPress, and we are obsessed with only adding value, we are able to reduce any waste, which results in the prices listed.
You don't live close by, can we still make your website?
Absolutely, this is the digital age of rapid change, if you don't even want to talk at all and just send us e-mails, we can work with you.
I currently have a website, what can you do?
There are a few options, we can take over the website, update it and optimize it, we can completely redesign it or we can create an entirely knew one.
Can you do any digital marketing/content management?
Absolutely, while we do not have packages and prices listed just yet, we do manage some of our clients' social media pages, as well as run their digital marketing campaigns.
