Okay, so you've been thinking about putting your business on the Internet for sometime now, but you still aren't convinced it's the right move to make or the right time to do it. If you're like most traditional retailers, you have a lot of questions you need to find the answers to before you make the big move to the 'net. You may have questions like:
Do I really need a web site?
How can a web site help my business grow?
How much will a web site cost me?
How do I know I'm not being charged too much?
How can a web site help my business grow?
My friend's son says he can make a web site, should I hire him to do it for me?
How can a website help personnel outside the home office do business more efficiently?
Can't I just buy one of those Web Design programs & do it on my Gateway at home?
No need to go anywhere else,we do it all, and we do it right!
Trying to get straight answers to these questions and others can be very difficult. As a business owner, it sometimes seems like everyone you talk to is only interested in one thing: PUTTING YOUR MONEY INTO THEIR POCKETS. If it's answers you're looking for, you've come to the right place!
Example Technologies, understands e-tailing and the special needs of businesses that are making the jump into cyber space. We're hoping, of course, that when you do decide to make the move to the World Wide Web, that you'll hire us to develop and maintain your company web site for you. As you can see, the quality of our work is second-to-none, and our prices are very affordable. Let's look at some of the issues you should be aware of before you make any decisions.
Let's start out by talking about something that concerns all of us: money.
Large corporations spending tens-of-thousands (or even millions) of dollars to develop their websites. Example Technologies will design a web site that will fit into your allocated budget. Site design costs can range from about $1000 for a simple, mulitple page site with graphics and some flash text to as much as $4,000 to $8,000 or more for a very elaborate site (complete with sound, animation, chat rooms, java applets, shopping-cart programs, etc.).
The good news is that it's only a one-time investment. Once it's created, it's yours forever.
Many websites start out small and evolve over time, paying their way as they go. If you are considering another web site designer, be aware that most retain ALL of the rights to the site (read the fine print on their contract). Simply put, this means that they own the site and all of it's contents.
Example Technologies, upon completion of your site design, ALL of the programming code is burned to a CD ROM, or other non-volatile media and shipped to you. At that point all rights are turned over to you. It becomes your intellectual property, as we believe it rightfully should. However, our stand on turning over the rights to the customer has not been well received by other web site design companies. Regardless, it is our belief that the site you pay to have designed should become your property, not the design companies'. That's our policy and we're sticking to it!
Domain names, and how to get one...
If you'd desire your own unique domain name, like "www.YourCompanyName.com",
you'll need to register your domain name with Internic (the regulatory agency
that monitors and registers domain names). They charge about $70 for 2 years
to make sure nobody else uses your domain name. You can choose to register the
site yourself or Example Technologies can include this service in the cost of
your site. To see if the name/domain you want is available, click here
to go to our domain name search page.
If you choose to go with Example Technologies we can either design and transfer your site to a host of your choice or we can design and arrange for your site to be hosted with us. As such, we can be your complete Internet source. Stepping you through the process; guiding you all the way. Either way you choose, Example Technologies can design, launch, and maintain your site anywhere!
What about changes or updates for the future & how much does that cost? A web site that never changes is a site that won't attract repeat visitors, but do changes cost more money? The issue is simple: most web site design companies charge you a fee to design the site, then you must pay in hourly charges for ANY changes or edits in the future, no matter how small! So, what if you don't want to pay for or can't afford someone at $45 to $195 an hour (or more) to make those changes for you every month? At Example Technologies, we charge a single yearly fee that covers ALL charges*.
You see, when you hire Example Technologies, you're hiring an entire Information Technology Department, dedicated to serving your needs. We do what we know - maintaining your site, so you can be freed up to do what you know - running your business.
Proper site maintenance is more critical than it may seem. Constantly monitoring links and updating your files are only part of our exclusive web site maintenance service. Let us keep your site "Lean and Mean", and give you the maximum return on your investment. We offer comprehensive, affordable site management to assure your site's functionality.
We stay current with emerging technology, as a result-so does your site.
