The First Meeting
The first thing we do is sit down with you and discuss what you want in a website as well as your social networking needs.
What audience are you looking to attract? Do you want a Facebook page? Will you promote yourself on Twitter or LinkedIn? Are you going to send out e-mail marketing campaigns?
We’ll help you set up a hosting account with a reputable hosting company. We recommend HostMonster Web Hosting because we have worked successfully with them for several years and they have excellent customer service. (Full disclosure: we get a small affiliate fee from Hostmonster if we sent them clients). There are several other companies that are acceptable as well, if you prefer.
Next, we will look at various website themes to see which ones you like best for your business. WordPress themes are so much fun – you can make your site look however you want and, when you want a new look, it is so easy (and fun) to change it. For example, look at these.
Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization begins on the first day – from the selection of your domain name ( for example, yourbusiness.com) to the content decisions you make. We will decide what pages you want on your site and what kind of content is appropriate for your business.
The words you use on your site are all-important. The best way to attract search engines is to make sure you use keywords throughout your site. We’ll talk about what types of keywords are important for your business and discuss ways to use them on your site.
We’ll set up emails for your business and your employees associated with your domain name (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org)
We’ll train you so you can update your website all by yourself. Of course, you can always call us to do it but some people like to be able to control their content all by themselves and WordPress is the ideal platform for folks like them.
We can also help you with those computer annoyances that everyone experiences. Need help getting your wireless internet up or working again? Can’t open that one document you really need on your computer? We like to solve those problems for you.
