Small Business Website Design
Websites are possibly the most disregarded vehicle of advertising for local small businesses. Yes, every small business needs one. Every doctor, lawyer, and accountant needs one. Every cafe, restaurant, flower shop and hair dresser needs one.
I’m not suggesting that all these small businesses need to actually manage business online. I’m saying that everyone listed in the phone book or advertising in print needs to also be available on the internet today – it’s where your customers expect to find you and your website.

If you’re thinking you might not be able to afford a website, think again. For a simple well designed website, a budget of $500 to $1,500 for design and construction and $35 to $100 for monthly maintenance and updates should cover it. Robust sites with streaming video, opt-in subscriber functions and other design upgrades and extras can run between $1,500 and $4,000 for design and construction and $200 to $1,000 for monthly maintenance and updates. I will do a free “requirements” analysis for an exact quote.
When accurately constructed, a well designed website will allow your customers to gather the information they need from the privacy and convenience of their own computers. What are the questions your clientele ask virtually every day? And how, exactly, would your best employee answer on his or her best day? This is the information that needs to be available 24/7 on your small business website.
People in Atlantic Canada are looking for convenience in today’s hectic world. They are looking for the quickest and easiest way to get information, or they simply like to have all the facts before they come to you with questions. Forty-eight percent of your customers strongly prefer to know what they’re coming to buy from your business before they walk in your door. And even the additional 52 percent of your target market will appreciate an informative website that functions during all those hours you are not open for business.
Don’t think for a moment that your customers aren’t already online. Several times a month, I am on the phone contacting potential small business customers. And I always ask, “Have you used a search engine within the past seven days to research a product or service that you were considering purchasing?” 80 to 90 percent of the people I talk with tell me that they have. Can you afford to not be on the internet with your small business website?
Do not make the mistake of thinking that the internet is something that only the young generation utilizes. Weather your business customers are located in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or any where else in Canada. Your customers are online and they are looking for your website, let me help them find you.
