Your website is pivotal to your businesses success, so you want it to shine and entice business like an ever present salesman. But at the same time you want it to be simple, secure and as inexpensive to create as possible. I understand. I’m a small business owner too. I’ve put together an outstanding web design package that will not only but is also affordable. Here’s what you get:
1.You Get 10 years+ Marketing Experience
A lot of web designers are just that – they are great at making your website look good. But they fail to correctly engineer your website so it achieves its objective – whether that is to generate inquiries, calls, subscriptions or sales. So in the end you just have an expensive website that looks good, but doesn’t achieve its potential.
And that sucks for you. You want a website that converts like a 24/7 sales representative.
75% of the success of a website, comes from its layout and ease of use – not its design and pretty pictures.
When I create a website for you I use my marketing experience in big business and small business marketing to ensure the look and structure of your website is geared towards achieving your website objectives.
Yes, it will look good. The design just won’t get in the way of your websites information.
2. You Will Get a Custom Built Web Design Solution
This is a biggie. I custom design websites from scratch for every client.
Some designers use templates. Templates that thousands of other designers use. They then squeeze or pressure you to conform to these templates.
This immediately puts you at a disadvantage. Your business shouldn’t be forced into a cookie-cutter template. The design needs to support your story, your point of difference and your products.
I take the time to work with you to sketch up proposed layouts and imagery before I start building your website. This approach gives us both total flexibility to create a website that best reflects your business and achieve its online objectives.
You will be proud to give out your domain name to potential customers. Checkout my small business website portfolio for examples.
3. Google Optimised For Your Market
When building your website, I will build your site on solid SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) foundations. You want your website to be found by people who are searching the internet for your products and/or services. I will ensure that your website fundamentals are search engine optimised, allowing you to strongly compete in your industry.
I will also configure Google Analytics for your website, so you are able to track your websites performance against number of visitors and key searched terms.
Be aware that anyone that claims guaranteed Google ratings are lying, or at least bending the truth. Don’t be taken in.
For best ongoing results, you may wish to consult an SEO professional. SEO is a forever changing beast that requires constant vigilance. SEO is not set and forget.
4. Social media & blog integration
I will connect and where necessary integrate your social media content automatically into your website. This includes updates from your business’ Facebook and Twitter profiles. These can be as integrated or as separate from your website as you wish. When in doubt I will provide you with a recommendation.
5. Mobile Friendly Design
Your website will automatically resize to fit multiple screen sizes, including phones, tablets, PCs and Macs. This provides a positive user experience for both your customers and potential customers. Statistic about usage across these devices.
6. Secure Robust Design
Your website will be built according to robust online security standards. These techniques will strongly safeguard your website against unverified user activity. For even further security, see our hosting benefits (further down the page).
7. $0 Ongoing Licensing Fees…Ever
Some web design agencies will charge you ongoing monthly fees for the ongoing use of their work – because they lock you into their copyrighted system… Ouch.
And each month you’re asked to lay down fees to pay for the privilege. Then before you know it you’re being slugged hundreds of dollars to use their code. Hearing these stories really annoys me.
Rest assured, I will create your website using an open source and freely available content management system.
After I complete your website you will own the design to your site outright and will pay no further ongoing website licensing fees… EVER. You can also be safe in the knowledge that another web designer will easily be able to edit the site in future without trouble.
8. Easy to Update Website
An easy to update website is so important. Your website will be free and easy to update through an internet connection.
In the majority of cases updating your website will be similar to editing a Microsoft Word document.
Also, as a hosting bonus I even include simple to follow step by step videos showing you how to easily update your website.
9. You Get Full Website Control
When your website is completed you will have full access to your website code and hosting cPanel. Not sure what this means? It means that you have full read/write and coding access to your website.
Some web designers lock away your website and insist that they perform any of your requested ongoing changes for a fee. I don’t do this. I give you all the keys, meaning you have complete control of your website.
10. 100% Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee
This one’s a biggie. My 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. I hang my reputation on my work. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your website. If you are not 100% satisfied, I will give you a full refund, including the deposit.
ADDITIONAL HOSTING BONUSES
Every website needs website hosting. There’s no getting around it. All websites need to be hosted on external servers that computers plugged into the internet can access. These servers make your content accessible to anyone around the world at any time. Without hosting, no one would be able to view your site on the Internet.
My Website Hosting gives you access to $130 of monthly critical information for $19.95. Check these out below
I offer small business website hosting from secure servers. In fact, I only offer these hosting packages to my clients. This keeps my pricing competitive and the hosting servers as secure as possible. It also offers me the opportunity to offer the following jaw dropping additional benefits, for platinum packages.
These benefits far exceed anything I’ve ever come across. They are not worthless. They are the extensions that Pros pay for separately. And you’re essentially getting $130 of monthly value for $19.95 per month.
Check out the hosting benefits below:
11. Generous Disc Space and Bandwidth
You get between 1-5GB of hosting space. This is plenty. Most websites only require about one quarter to halfof this. And if you need more, just let me know and I’m sure I can allocate you more.
You also receive between 5-50GB of bandwidth. The more people visit your site and access your content, the more bandwidth you will need. Again, most websites will only need one quarter to half of this. And if you need more, just let me know and I’m sure I can allocate you more.
Check out the full website hosting specifications.
Value: $12 per month
12. Installation of Future Updates For Free
Did you know that the number one reason websites are hacked is because website owners fail to update their website coding? Ouch. By hosting with Small Business Planned, I handle all this for you so you don’t have to lift a finger or get bamboozled with geek speak.
There’s no need to worry about ongoing website maintenance. I will install and activate all future website updates for you automatically. This keeps your website as secure as possible and ensures that its performance is top notch.
Value: $25 per month – Platinum hosting only
13. FREE Instructional Videos
This is an outstanding bonus. Once your website’s complete, most designers toss you to the curb and provide no training. You’re on your own.
Not with me. You will have ready access to premium instructional videos that show you step by step how to update your website. These are easy to follow videos that I have personally shot and narrated.
I will also update them to keep them relevant.
Value: $19 per month – Platinum hosting only
14. FREE Secure Full Website Backups
I will take full backups of your website and store them securely, multiple times a month for free.
Be aware that some backup processes out there only copy your website database or selected content. And other processes store your backup on the same server as your main website. This is a huge no-no.
My secure backup service does much better than this. I will continually securely backup your entire website including all databases, images and content all for free. For added piece of mind, these will be backed up to a location separate from your website.
Value: $15 per month – Platinum hosting only
15. FREE Website Recovery
Should the unthinkable occur and your website becomes corrupted and unusable, I will restore your website from your latest backup for free.
Some webhosts that offer this service charge an additional fee – however this benefit comes to you for free with a Small Business Planned hosting package.
When needed, your website will be brought back on line with the highest priority.
Value: $65 (When needed) – Platinum hosting only
16.FREE ‘Finger tips’Password Sheet
Upon completion of your website, I will create and send to you an easy to understand sheet outlining all your logins and passwords. This simple sheet will make your life easier. No more searching and trying to remember what your username and passwords are.
Just remember to keep this sheet in a safe secure location.
In addition you will also receive a diagram explaining the meanings of website hosting, content management systems and domain names etc – and how these all fit together.
Value: $49 (once off) – Basic & Platinum Hosting
17. SEO Peformance Reports
In another special benefit, you will have access to an SEO specialist weekly report to track three of your most important keywords (search terms that potential customers enter into Google looking for your services).
I commission these SEO reports from the reputable company Market Samurai. These reports will constantly track how your website rankings are fairing for your most important three keywords.
These reports will be delivered straight to your inbox to ensure you are kept abreast of any key ranking changes.
Value: $50 per month – Platinum hosting only
18. Eye Tracker Reports
In another outstanding benefit, three of your key website pages will be monitored for ‘eye tracker’ activity. That is – you will see heat map reports showing where people are clicking and where they are not. I commission this service through the consumer behaviour experts, Crazy Egg (yes, strange name, but excellent company).
You can use these reports to fine tweak your content to maximise your enquiries and sales.
Value: $9 per month – Platinum hosting
19. Free ‘Ask Me Anytime’ Ongoing Support
Once your website is complete, I won’t ride off into the sunset on my temperamental brumby. If you’ve got a question – I’m there. Simply email me.
I’ll answer your question and provide a recommendation all for no charge. If you need me to provide some coding changes to your website, there may be an additional charge. I’ll always be 100% transparent in my costs.
Value: Priceless – Platinum hosting
20. Discounted Future Website Changes
Want me to do further work on your website? If you have Platinum hosting with Small Business Planned, you will receive a 20% discount on my standard hourly rate. This will save you a bundle.
