Question - Why do I need a website?
Answer - There are many answers to that question. One reason
is that a website can be a good way for your customers to
find you (Just like when customers use the Yellow Pages).
Another reason is that a good website will help your customers
learn all about your products and services. Websites make
great electronic brochures and can answer the same questions
that customers ask again and again. You are able to put
a lot of information and photos into your website - far
more than in newspaper advertisements for instance. Finally
a website continues to work long after you quit for the
day. A website can continue taking orders or answering questions
Question - Can I afford a website?
Answer - Compared to advertising in other media, a website
can be very cost effective. After the initial set up of
your website your monthly costs can be as little as $20/month
and the number of potential viewers can be very high.
Question - What do I have to do to get started?
Answer - Creating a web presence can be broken down into
four basic steps. Step one is to decide what dot com name
you want to use and determine if that name is still available.
To see if the name that you would like to use is available
here. The second step is to gather up all the materials
you will need to create the website. Materials that you
will need include written text to describe your company,
products or services, your company logo, pictures and any
graphics you would like to use. If you need help with any
of these materials we can write text, design logos and take
pictures for you at an additional charge. Step three is
