Let's get real.....
You need a website for your business.
A simple site to allow you to show your products and services to your customers, and hopefully gain more customers along the way.
If you are in business then YES, you do need a website, it is an essential part of doing business. However, you DON'T need the biggest, brightest and flashiest website on the net and you do NOT need to be ripped off.
We have met people paying way too much for their web sites every year and the pages are static, meaning they are rarely updated by the owner and have little or no interaction with the customer other than contact details or form.
Don't be trapped in a popular online template website that own the copyright on your work, keep you hostage by controlling your domain name and charging double or triple for your site after the first year is past. Shop around and ask questions.
Google ranking and Key Word searches are mostly a huge rip off for the average business. If you know how it works then you will understand that no matter how much money you pay, you might rarely be on page one of the google search, unless you have something unique to sell and if people are searching for that exact item.
We know of businesses paying between $1,000 to $5,000 per month trying to attract customers with promises of more traffic to the website. Is it really worth the cost? Surely there are other more effective places to use your adverising money.
Shopping Carts can be expensive, not easy to use and take up too much of your valuable time.
We have discovered you can have a simple format shopping cart, using PayPal, that is easy for your customers, easy for web maintenance updating and at a cost equal to your current eftpos charges.
