How May I Serve You?
Yes, I know it's a question you don't hear much anymore, but it's honestly how I approach every project on which I work. I want you to feel like you are my only client by knocking your socks off with my service. It really is what sets me apart. Let's face it - there's lots of web designers and web developers out there with whom you could be working. Some will charge more and some will charge less, but NO ONE will provide better service...I guarantee it!
It's my personal philosophy that website design is like an NFL referee - the better it is, the less it is noticed. What do I mean by this? It's simple - your website's content and information should be the attention getter - not the design. After all, your visitors are looking for information, right? That being said, I'll provide a design that perfectly complements the information by enhancing the content - not distracting from it. After all, your website is quite often the first impression for your organization and you never get a second chance...well, you get the idea.
This is where Cristers Media comes in. You'll get an exceptionally designed website that sends the message you want it to send. The goal for the design is to complement the message of the content - nothing more and nothing less.
A great design is a good start but your website needs to perform. You'll get a website that functions the way it should with the features you need for it to engage your visitors. Cristers Media readily develops websites with features such as blogs, slideshows, photo galleries, contact forms, RSS feeds, forums, and much more. The bottom line is, if you need it, it can be done.
Expect to spend a minimum of $1,200 for a basic website with several pages and basic functionality and features. Ecommerce websites start at about $2,500, but the price of a quality website can certainly vary - so please request a detailed quote for your particular project.
What good is a website if it gets little or no visitors? If you are serious about making your website go to work for you, it will need to be marketed in a way that pays you back. Your website is your very own 24/7 sales team - it never takes a day off. Let's be realistic; website marketing is an investment - Invest a little and expect a small return. Invest a lot and you'll reap a bountiful harvest.
I can set up and manage one time or ongoing search engine optimization campaigns, pay-per-click campaigns and social networking campaigns so that your website adds big revenue to your business or organization.
Expect to spend at least $500/mo for a website marketing plan customized to your needs, goals and budget as well as an additional setup fee.
What is website hosting? Good question! Most people know they need a domain name to have a website. If your website were a house, your domain name would be your address and web hosting would be the real estate your house sits on. When your website is published on the Internet, it needs to be placed on a powerful server that is connected to the Internet so everyone in the world can access it using your domain name. All the text, images, forms, videos, and other files that make up a website, has to have a central location where it can be downloaded and viewed from anywhere on the Internet - this is where website hosting comes in.
