I put this at the top of the list because this is where to start. You can lose a social media account at any time due to hackers or just from people who make false complaints about your business. You never lose your email list. Having a monthly email blast may be the most cost-effective and safest way to build a business.
There’s a myriad of choices out there, so I just focus on the top priorities. I recommend LinkedIn profiles both for your business and for your own personal networking. I can help create and maintain your business Facebook page with a vanity URL to engage with your customers. Targeted local Facebook ads are an extremely affordable and effective short-term strategy. I can even help create an Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest page if it makes sense for your business but be cautious about being in too many places. You really want to focus your efforts on just a few platforms that make sense for you.
I partner with the best and most affordable web design companies to help you create a professional looking website. We focus on a clean, mobile-friendly responsive design that looks great, is easy to navigate and search engine friendly. Our top website designers strive to make the process as painless as possible. Your custom website will be effective in attracting new customers and easy to maintain.
Ok, I am big on the premise that you must have a great web presence. Most web designers I have worked with will try to sell you proprietary software to run your website. I prefer open source so anyone can work on it, including myself. I do my own web design when needed and can help collaborate on bigger projects because I hate to get ripped off by designers.
Many business owners who lack a strong computer background have to trust their web design firm to treat them fairly and end up spending too much money on their website and getting too little for it. I work with your website design ideas and work to create the best custom website design for your money.
Not only can I help design an effective and affordable website, but I use web hosting packages that have some of the lowest rates in town and I prefer companies based in the United States.
