An Affordable Online Presence for Sole Proprietors and Small Businesses
Take advantage of the latest design trends for your site. Websites today don't need to be complex with lots and lots
of pages. Single scroll sites (like this one) prove effective in most cases. And, don't forget about the mobile-friendliness of
your website. Most of your web traffic will probably come from mobile devices.
Thanks to the WordPress content management system (CMS), websites don't need to be difficult to update and maintain. Easily create and
repurpose content, manage images and other documents, and keep your site secure. Be confident with WordPress as it
is the CMS of choice for close to 20% of all websites on the World Wide Web.
Have stuff to sell? The most customizable e-commerce platform for building your online business is WooCommerce. It was made for WordPress.
WooCommerce is now the most popular e-commerce platform on the web (stats from Builtwith),
so you can rest assured you're in good company.
Did you know there are now hundreds of TLDs (domain extensions) available? Chances are there is one specific to your business. Beyond the
.com, .net, and .org are .catering, .coffee, .attorney, .dentist, .insurance, and .law for example. We can do the necessary searches and
find the domain right for you.
Your website must live somewhere on the Web for people to be able to access it. That's where hosting comes in. We recommend Bluehost
for their speed and reliability. Bluehost is officially recommended by WordPress.org, and Bluehost powers over 2 million websites worldwide.
Does your website need to be secure? Probably. If you are selling stuff, for sure. Even if you aren't selling stuff, Google now ranks
sites that do not have https:// lower in search results. Not to mention having https:// and the padlock in the URL bar of the browser
gives an extra sense of safety.
You may already have an established business email address, or you may be starting your website and business email from scratch. Either way,
we recommend G Suite by Google Cloud. Their service includes Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Calendar for business. We can easily migrate your existing
email accounts or set up new service so you have firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your new site is up and running, it is time to have it work for you. Your new site should have a form for people to be able to
sign up for a weekly or monthly e-newsletter. We have partnered with MailChimp to effectively send out e-newsletters so list management
is easy and you will be in ICANN compliance.
