Let's cut to the chase...
You're looking for someone to do a web site. You want the best price you can get. However, you also realize that it's about more than price...
A web site is an advertising investment - meant to bring a return in a cost-effective manner. It should not be, nor be thought of as, a COST. There is a lot more to a web site than what you see on screen. Even free isn't cheap if you don't get results!
The three keywords for a business are: Location, Location, Location. The same is true of a web site - where the location is the URL. I advise my clients on effective URLs and even their e-mail addresses. Site quality is important - but being found is more important! "Invisible" elements of a page have an effect on having it found - as does the content and layout of the visible portion. And, web surfers are an impatient bunch. A site needs to be optimized to load quickly while presenting comprehensive information.
Design & Create
I provide the hosting for all of my clients. This way I know exactly what the capabilities of the web servers are. I also know I use top quality, state of the art servers that stay up and running 99.9% of the time... any server will be down briefly, occasionally; the ones I use have the best up-time and some of the highest speeds available.
A Little Extra Clout
Every website I do is promoted briefly through the Toledo-Bend.Com website. Search engines visit Toledo-Bend.Com very frequently because it is a huge, high-traffic website (about 1.25 million hits expected for 2010). This will help your new site get noticed by search engines. And, our Toledo-Bend.Com visitors will see it listed on the home page and visit it, too - giving you an initial shot of potential customers - off to a fast start!
Search Engine Placement
No one can guarantee you results on where your site will be placed by search engines. I can guarantee your site will be noticed and helped by getting listed briefly on Toledo-Bend.Com's home page and a permanent link somewhere within the site - a link from a powerful and popular website will help boost yours. We have some companies that place subtle text ads through agencies on Toledo-Bend.Com and pay as much as $1,000. so their sites will be better noticed - that's the clout this site has!
Depending on your business, there are various ways to promote your site through Toledo-Bend.Com.We offer Banner Advertising (50% discount to website clients, too!) as well as an area Directory of Business & Services. I want to promote my clients so their websites do well... if your site does well, so do I.
I do the photography for my sites using high-end equipment. As of March, 2010 that is a Canon 7D DSLR camera with a selection of lenses including: 8mm Fisheye, 16mm Fisheye, 10-20mm Wide Zoom, 17-35 Wide Zoom, 24-135mm Zoom, 28-105mm Zoom, 70-200mm f2.8 Telephoto Zoom, 70-300 Macro Zoom, 120-300mm f2.8 Telephoto Zoom, 2x & 3x Teleconverters.
Virtual Reality Photography is also available.
