My favorite definition of marketing, is to get in touch with who you are and what you have to give to your people, and from there, to create a presence so that your people can find you. One of the ways to do that, is by having a website where you express who you are and what you have to offer.
Your first website does not have to be complicated or fancy and in my experience, a simple approach works best:
- Something that is easy and cost-effective to set up.
- AND, even more important, easy and cost effective to change, because I can almost guarantee that you’re going to want to start changing it before the proverbial ink on the first launch has dried.
That’s why I specialize in providing simple, but powerful solutions that will help you build your business without breaking the bank. And it’s why I’ve chosen to use the web-based tools that I use. Take a look here if you’d like more detail on the tools that I use and costs for each tool.
And here you’ll find links to some of the websites I’ve built for clients.
And now let’s get down to business and what you really want to know: what can I give you and how much will it cost?
