A recent Google survey highlighted just how important a business’ professional website is to its success.
Nearly 70 percent of survey respondents (adults ages 18 to 64) stated they were more likely to purchase products and services from a business with a website.
Yet, 36 percent of small businesses reported they don’t have even a basic website in place. Why is this?
Running a small business is hard work. In many cases, there simply isn’t extra time or knowledgeable personnel to get a website up and running.
But that lack can cost you customers you don’t even know you’re losing.
In this post, discover how easy it can be to get your own small-business website operating before another new year arrives!
Cost Is Not An Obstacle to Launching a Business Website
With a little extra time and some basic tech savvy, you too could be on your way to populating your own corner of the world wide web.
But how valuable would your website be, given that your area of business expertise likely lies elsewhere? “Not too valuable” is the honest answer.
We’re not talking about launching a placeholder website. We are talking about a bona fide professional business website – one that actively drives new customer prospects to you and generates a continual stream of useful data to help you turn those prospects into loyal repeat customers.
What if you could get a small-business website for your company for less than $85 per month? Would you consider it? Would you perhaps even jump at the chance?
Go From Break-Even to Profitable with an Affordable Business Website
It is one thing to look at the straight-up cost of launching a new business website. We totally get it: when you are running a new business on a shoestring, any added expenses can often look exorbitant on the front end.
But what makes the cost of launching your business website not just affordable but profitable is what happens next.
Remember, your website isn’t just a checkmark beside an item on your to-do list. It is your active marketing partner all day, every day.
While you are busy tending to your customers and marketing your business locally, your website is doing the same for you online.
A well-built, well-maintained, active business and marketing website is going to earn its keep and then some. No one would ever launch websites if they didn’t help business owners increase business!
So if you launch a business website and you don’t see an increase in site visits, new customer inquiries and prospect-to-customer conversions, something is wrong.
This is yet another reason why you need to put your best foot forward the moment you establish your business presence online. The goal is launching a well-designed, fast-loading, seamless, straightforward business website that greets customers like you would greet them if they walked in your door.
Do this right the first time and you won’t have to backtrack to repair your online reputation and attempt to recapture customers who were unimpressed with your company’s online presence.
If These Small Businesses Can Do It, You Can Do It Too
Here at OSM, we are a small business ourselves. We just happen to specialize in website design and hosting, SEO (search engine optimization) advertising and online marketing.
Of course, we built our own website, and it is doing a great job for us!
We have also built sites for many other local businesses that are seeing great results from our affordable yet deeply customized and rigorously tested website designs.
Here again, if our own website wasn’t holding up its end of the bargain, it wouldn’t still be operating, and neither would we. The same holds true for each of our customers and their websites.
We have helped businesses in all stages of growth and at all levels of operation, from libraries and hospitals to residential communities, HVAC companies, consulting firms and nonprofits.
While our customers stay busy growing their companies, we build websites that become essential marketing partners for their success.
An Affordable Website Bundle for Every Small Business
Our Websites Bundle Offer is tailor-made for new and emerging businesses as well as businesses at all stages of growth and expansion.
The Bundle Offer includes everything your business needs to begin seeing results from claiming your internet presence.
It costs a little less than $85 per month (or $999.99 in one lump payment). To consider what this might look like in terms of return on investment, think of your least expensive product or service offering.
Let’s say you sell heating equipment. If you sold one new maintenance plan from launching your website, that would be $150 back in your pocket and two months of website services paid for.
Or perhaps you sell consulting services and your hourly rate is $100. Just one new consultation and your website has already earned its keep!
But you don’t just get a website with our Business Bundle. You also get website hosting (including professional business email) and our introductory marketing package – it is all included!
We do this because we don’t want you to launch a website and then wonder why you did it. We want you to experience the power of a focused, targeted, customized website from day one.
With our Bundle Offer, you get all of this:
Customized business template website design optimized for mobile and desktop.
Introductory hosting plan with lead-capture, analytics, ads, shopping carts and more.
Introductory marketing package with SEO optimization across Google, including business directly, analytics, traffic tracking and more
