Hi, my goal is to assist small business owners by providing a website design service combined with offering advice & assistance for friends and acquaintances.
Having a PRESENCE ON THE WWW such as the websites I have designed above, does not have to “break the bank”! Review my client comments for their appreciation. For example, in Australia we have a range of providers, such as Netvirtue where you can purchase both Domain and Web Hosting for very reasonable prices. By following the link provided you can check out their most competitive Hosting pricing – E.G. – if you choose to have the 1 years hosting (nvStarter Plan) then for as little as $50.00 per year, you can have that vital web presence!
In our busy lives today and particularly with small business it is now of utmost importance to have a presence on the web. However, this does not need to translate to a complex, costly or time consuming impact on the small business owner – it can for instance, just purely be understanding the importance of ‘claiming’ your business presence on Google Maps & Places.
You may well ask, “How important is this Google Maps? “Well here’s a great example; Having moved into a new state/town – recently I wanted to buy a Brush cutter – I did a Google Map search for ‘Mower shops’, it listed 2 only, whom I promptly visited and got brochures. Driving home we needed groceries and yes opposite the turn-off is another Mower Store I was unaware of – will I or won’t I stop? Guess what; I stopped and they offered good service & product and I walked out with a new $550.00 Brush cutter!! Wow were they lucky to get that sale!
As a small business unfortunately they have no website or internet presence, yet a simple Google Maps listing would have ensured I knew they existed. More importantly at no cost, it would continue to actively market them & provide extra means to maximise sales potential! With today’s ‘smart phones’ it has fast becoming a ‘no brainer’ to not have a SEO optimised net prescence.
Twitter and Facebook are ideal platforms to ensure your small business is found, alive and well- there is literally NO Excuse for not becoming involved in your local community, letting it know WHO, WHAT & WHERE you are & HOW to find you.
