Do I Really Need a Website?
Yes! word of mouth can be great, but a majority of consumers find and research companies online before making any purchases. An online presence gives your company credibility and boosts brand awareness. Some people think that because they have a Facebook business page they don’t need a website. That’s not the case because you have no control over the social media platforms. Their algorithms change often and they determine who sees your posts. On your website you determine the content and if your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is done well, you will rank high in the Search Engine Results Page (SERPs) and a lot of people will see your website.
How Much Does a Website Cost?
This is probably the most often asked question and what I can say is that it depends on what you’re looking for in the website. It’s like asking how much is a car or house? The cost to create a website for a small business depends heavily on whether your company builds your site in-house or with the expertise of a professional web design agency.
Typically, do-it-yourself web design with a website builder costs $0 to $300, while professional web design costs $2,000 to $10,000. While you may pay up to $300 to create your site with a website builder, you’re also paying with your time. It’ll take time for you to learn how to use the website builder, as well as read up on critical factors, like basic web design rules and best practices for SEO, which helps people find your site. The question you must ask is, “Do I have the time and skills to develop a professional looking website?” We can help your business create a beautiful and functional site that helps your company attract new customers.
Keep in mind these are only estimates and that you get what you pay for. You’re going to spend money or time and the right answer is the one that’s right for you and your business.

I Don’t Have a Login to . . .
If you don’t have the login to your website, Google Analytics or something else then speak to your web developer, or members of your staff. Without them, all I can do is review what the public sees, which still gives me great insight into your online presence, but I can’t go in and change anything.
One of my clients had this issue and he was unable to get in touch with the web developer. The result . . . I had to design a completely new website. A better website, but still I had to start from scratch. Why pay for all that time? Make sure you have all your login information in a secured location.
