I’m sure you’ve enjoyed fastfood before, who hasn’t? If you’re in a rush, it can serve its purpose. But if you needed to impress an important business client, would you setup the meeting to sign off on a huge deal at a fast food restaurant? Of course NOT! It would reflect terribly on you and your business. So this illustrates an important point; choose a website that’s appropriate for the kind of customer or client you need to impress. “Build it yourself websites” can serve a purpose, but they mfay not be enough to impress potential clients.
I am in the process of rejuvenating my current website. I have someone out of house running it remotely, but want to switch to run it in house myself. I’ve decided to run it via Wix.com, simply because I found it easier to use. However, in some of their more premium (and expensive) packages, they offer x amount of email campaigns with the more expensive packages.. I already have four email accounts set up via the pre-existing website and don’t want these to become void.. I own the pre existing domain already (and want to keep it, which is possible via Wix). Will my pre existing email accounts remain viable even if I switch to a new website company? Can you give me some clarity on the repercussions of switching to Wix.com (I am planning to pay the minimum which allows me get rid of any Wix adverts) will have on my pre existing site in reference to the email accounts already set up.
For businesses that aren’t brick and mortar — a graphic designer working out of their home, for instance — list your office hours and time zone so that customers know when you’ll be available and answering emails/calls/etc. This will help prevent 7 pm emails from customers expecting an immediate response. It will also help you separate work hours from actual life hours — something that can be difficult when you work out of your house.
The creative talent pool at OuterBox is impressive. Their partnership approach to project management truly has clients thinking ‘out of the box’. They quickly become part of the ‘team’. As a client, I have genuinely appreciated their thorough evaluation of each project, their fresh creative perspective and original solutions. All-in-all, just a wonderful team. - Anchor Hocking
They don’t need a lot of info or a complicated, multi-page encyclopedia about you. Just a few simple pages are usually more than enough, as long as it has basic information that’s tailored to their needs and very easy to find. And, most importantly, it should be accurate and up-to-date, since out of date info is one of people’s top pet peeves when it comes to using local business websites.

Everyone knows how important reviews can be – we found that 75% of small business shoppers think it’s important to read them before visiting a business. But what if you are in an industry where your customers don’t always want to broadcast that they’ve visited you? While some clients might hesitate to put a review on Yelp about how helpful your services have been for them, they might be open to leaving a testimonial on your website.
I was giving a speech on the impact of the internet on small business at an association luncheon in Montgomery, Alabama. Back in 1998, which was decades ago in internet years, the future of e-commerce was anybody's guess, but even the most negative futurists agreed that all the signs indicated that a large portion of future business revenues would be derived from online transactions or from offline transactions that were the result of online marketing efforts.
Having a business website gives you an automatic online presence. Think of it as an online billboard. Instantly you have another chance to introduce people to your products and services and another way for people to find you. (Of course, how many eyes your billboard attracts will depend on your conscious marketing efforts to get people's attention, such as Search Engine Optimization, blogging, using social media, and online advertising.)

Having a website also allows your local business to sell more often to existing customers and reach additional customers. If you offer products and services for sale on your website, you give your customers a chance to buy on their own time and on their own terms. You can improve customer retention by offering personalized accounts that include customer profiles, transaction histories and product recommendations. Plus, your local business may have the chance to become a state, regional, national or even global business if you are willing to ship products to customers outside the local market.
The way a lot of people think about getting a new website is, they have a certain amount of money and they think, “If I pay less money for a website, I’ll have extra money left over, therefore I win”. And so they’ll go and get a Square Space or a Wix or a Go Daddy website, and they’ll think because they’ve saved money they’re coming out ahead of the deal.
You should put relevant items on the website. For example, if your website is about giving advice, you might want to add a blog about the most important questions. If your website is about selling merchandise, you should add some of your contact information, like e-mail or phone number. Also try to make your website popular by connecting it to search engines like Google, MSN, Yahoo, and social media sites.
Yes, there are places where you can build “free” DIY websites, but a) they really aren’t free. You pay fees to remove ads, to get a decent domain name (a “dot com”), hosting, and to make changes or get help. Those fees are usually quadruple what a single individual would charge, and this practice is what usually hobbles most new business owners. I’ve seen lawyers with “free” DIY sites that are costing their practice(s) thousands per day in lost cases that their competitors are free to snatch up. I’ve seen restaurants making $10 to $20,000 per day go with “free” DIY blank template sites and then wonder why no one is placing orders online or no one can find them in local Google searches. The reason major companies don’t have “free” DIY sites is that they want results - more customers- and are willing to pay a few grand in order to increase their overall long term profits. My other point, b) is that you get what you pay for. “Free” websites don’t teach you how to incorporate a marketing plan into digital marketing assets, how to analyze your local demographics, won’t write professional-level copy for your site, or help you establish yourself. It’s the difference between reaching a goal and chasing your tail. It’s the difference between your phone ringing with new leads versus the sound of crickets chirping.
Hi David, Thanks for your comment and the analogy! As we say in the article, there are times when we definitely recommend a website designer. But for entrepreneurs, sometimes this isn't a realistic option. We truly do believe you can help your business grow and succeed by using a website builder - we've been there and seen it happen! While there's certainly a time to hire a web designer to make the most of their expertise, website builders are great for opening up the possibility of success to everyone. We believe nobody should be stopped from creating a website because of technical ability, and the same goes for financial situations. Website builders create more options for more people to promote their business online, and we think that's great! Thanks for reading and for joining the discussion, I hope you've found it interesting - Lucy
The FAQ page is your space to answer the most frequent questions you are asked. The frequently asked questions (FAQ) page will tell everyone – on one page – what they need to know. This will save you time answering those same questions on an individual basis. Provide honest answers for each one. Your answers should be a call to action, and persuade a potential customer to take the next step and buy whatever you’re selling.
Now obviously I can not build a massive website cheap, nothing like Facebook or Ebay for $399. But I can build a website advertising you or your business depending on your needs, including publishing it on your hosting plan (server). If your new website requires credit card processing or affiliations with merchants then it would be considered complex and, therefore would cost extra. When you contact Build Websites Cheap, we will give you all the costs up front so there are no surprises.

A web site is like your giant public bulletin board where people can get information on how to find you, where you are located, what you have to offer, why your service is unique, and what's new in your company. It also is easily updated and changed frequently, and is a communication forum through which your customers can communicate back to you with questions, concerns and feedback on their needs.
If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended.

Even if you decide to build your own website, consider having professional graphics designed for the site; at the very least a logo or brand developed. Using these professional elements can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel. It also wouldn’t hurt to have a professional look over the content on the site to check the quality of the copy, ensure relevant information is positioned correctly, and the user is led through the site in a way that will increase the likelihood of sales.

Consider Your Fonts — Papyrus may look cute on your kid’s 5th birthday party invite, but it doesn’t look great on your website. Luckily, most website builders themes will only use fonts that designers have already vetted for readability and looks. One important tip: Sans-serif fonts — the ones without the extra little flourishes — are generally easier to read on the web.
A) It's okay if you don't have content written for your website. We can proceed immediately by building the website and since we give you up to 30 days to send us content, you have time to write your content after the website has been built. As long as you send it to us within those first 30 days, we'll add it to the website for free. Don't worry if you go past 30 days and still need to add content. With BannerOS adding, editing and deleting content can all be done easily yourself.
Building a website from scratch is a lofty goal, but unless you’re really looking forward to investing in the process, it can be a big drain on your resources. And remember, your time counts as a resource when you’re bootstrapping a small business. If you need a responsive, professional-looking website — and you need it fast — Remixer is the tool for you.

Only you can determine if your company needs a web site. While making the determination, you want to consider that a web site is multi-functional, and is a communication tool — not an advertisement. If your business is organized, all of your clientele is local, and you have a back-log of customers waiting to be serviced —and you can handle that service effectively — you may not need a website.
This guy is right on! You should learn new skills that are critical to your success instead of focusing on your business. Just making a website is easy, making one that is easy for your users to navigate, captures your users' interactions, feed that back to a CRM so you can act on it and setting up automation to handle each one properly so you don't lose the customer is not. (And do not forget, the design of your site is critical to the effectiveness of Google and Microsoft Ads. Without them, no one will ever see your new, beautiful site.)
