SUMMER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
For many of us, winter is the season for planning our New Year. But, even when we have the best of intentions, sometimes things just don't work out. The "free-time" that we anticipate for winter is often spent on the holidays, going to bed early after dealing with wintery weather, or we simply didn't get around to "doing what we wanted to do." The reason(s) for the procrastination seldom matter. But, there is still some time left...
The real key to success on the web is advance planning. Whether you are thinking about building a new website, or breathing some fresh ideas into an older one, the time to take action is today! If you have an idea of what you want to accomplish, or if you are not really sure what the possibilities are, making a move forward is the only way to get the ball rolling.
The webstudio offers free initial consultations, and I encourage you to take advantage of that. It only takes 2-3 weeks to build a website, but it can take months for that website to be viewed by your site-visitors, glean some recognition in social media, and gain authority and rank in the search engines. Now is the time to be planning your early-summer website (or updates). Always remember, you need to first build (or revise) a website before you can accomplish anything with it!
“There are seven key qualities
to a successful website...”
For those that landed here for the quick answer to the most popular question...
The average costs, for a simple full-featured 4-5 page (“from scratch”) website, is in the neighborhood of $350-450 USD. That price includes assistance in content gathering, graphic design, best practices html site building, copy/content writing and/or editing. If you supply a majority of the site content (words/images) it can reduce the costs involved. Otherwise, we work together in compiling the content and it is included in the price. All new websites are built in a adaptive format – they are mobile-friendly. If you go full guns, it includes an initial Organic SEO, along with an assurance of full-first-indexing by the Google© search engine, establishing an analytics account (so you can monitor how your website is doing in the future), and guidance in establishing Google/Bing Local Business Listings (to get your website in front of potential site-visitors).
Ongoing/longer term, and more in-depth SEO, website development, and web/traditional marketing services are also available. For those interested in learning more, I encourage you to explore the website and to contact the webstudio. If you are interested in a website that is less involved, do feel invited to call. It is entirely feasible that "we can get you can get on the web" for under $200.
Mobile web browsing became more popular than desktop browsing for the first time in 2016. Chances are that over 85% of all web browsing will be done on smartphones this coming year. That simple fact implies a lot – for those that do not have mobile friendly websites and for those that do!
The webstudio has been busy working on website conversion projects this past year – moving them from the older static html format to mobile-friendly. It is a time-consuming, but relatively inexpensive and painless process. It averages out to about $20 USD per page for simple, smaller (under twenty page) sites – whether they are traditional html, PHP or created using a website builder like WIX, Weebly or anything similar. If you are giving it some thought, or have questions... let's talk about it. Click/tap here for more information on mobile-friendly conversions.
A RECENT PROJECT: In the late autumn of 2018, we began work on updating the (ten year old!) website of All Aboard Restaurant in New Milford CT. At first, the idea was to just update the menu and prices, but – once we talked about it for awhile – the project became a little more interesting. Not only did we do the menu and price updates, we made the website mobile-friendly. Also, we integrated the website with EDC Online Menu Systems for online ordering for pickup and delivery. It was something the owners had wanted to do for awhile. All in all, it was a very significant and cost-effective upgrade. To see how it works, visit the All Aboard Restaurant website. And, if you are in the New Milford area, order yourself a pizza or two!
For years, the webstudio has handled the social media, online marketing and traditional marketing activities for a variety of clients. It has been a "best kept secret," and pretty much taken for granted by the limited few. With New Year 2019, it seems appropriate to pull the candle out from under the basket. For those that did not know, “Yes, the webstudio handles ’that stuff‘ too!” Both online and in print, from program books to posters and banners, business cards to mailing lists, photography to video – the webstudio is here to be of service!
