You can build your own website with my assistance through one-on-one tutorials charged on a hourly basis at a very affordable fee. If you think that you would like to do that, contact me and explore the possibility. You will have the benefit of my experience at a fraction of the time it takes for you to gain that knowledge. The cost of your own website will also be considerably less. Consider the possibilities.
Ever wondered how many hits your website gets and from where? Which pages are the most popular? Can my website be optimised for search engines? Much of this can be accomplished through the use of Google Analytics for your website. I can manage this and send you weekly reports for a very small fee starting from $50 per year.
Your domain is the name of your website. However it does not need to be and can be other names as well. It is important to choose a domain name that relates to the type of business you are in so that search engines will find you much more easily. I can manage the purchase of your domain name and its renewal.
I make it a condition that all websites built by me are managed by me. Clients see the benefit immediately when websites are able to be updated very quickly resulting in considerable savings in time and costs. All my websites are hosted with Hostgator.com. Html and Flash websites hosting starts from a very reasonable $80 per year. CMS websites hosting starts from $200 per year.
CMS stands for content management system. Websites built with cms are capable of being edited by the small business owner without intervention of the website designer. It makes good business sense to have a cms website with costs starting from $1200.00. This designer favours WordPress as the cms system of choice because it is very user-friendly.
Flash websites are wonderful and very appealing to a business seeking to attract its customer base. Costs start from as little as $800 and are very affordable for small businesses. Flash websites however are website designer dependant for future editing as they are very complex to build and maintain.
You can have a basic website for as little as $600.00 with four pages that include Home, About Your Business, Products and Contact Page. This is a good start for a small business. The business owner is however dependent on the website designer for future updates which are costed on a hourly basis.
