What used to cost thousands of $$ can these days be had for a few hundred dollars. The best part is that the quality of your cheap website is the same as one which you can still buy for a lot of money. The main difference between them or the $250 Cheap Website deal you can buy right here is no longer in the scope of its functionalities but the organisation delivering the project. I am a sole trader and qualified Web Designer. What I do not have is a call center and 24/7 support with lots of staff and offices and meetings of managers. However this is not visible on your online presence, it looks just as professional and impressive as if you paid an organisation.
The big advantage of having a website is that even small business can look professional. While facebook may be important to your business it cannot help with building a professional image. I work with WordPress to create these cheap websites which keeps them functional and good looking. In 2017 30% of the top 1 million websites were WordPress websites. All those expensive websites you can buy are created with WordPress too.
Set and Forget Professional Small Business Website
Do you simply want a professional website functioning as your online point of contact? Let me set up a stunning contemporary business website to help you look the part. Often what small businesses need and want is a very simple straight forward online contact point for their customers. With a few photos and a short description of your business proposal we will have you look your best on the internet in no time. The most important aspect beyond looking professional is to tell your potential customer what you do and how you can be reached.
It is your choice to suit your own practice whether the visitor to your website is directed to place a call to you or whether you want them to contact you by email or contact form right on your business website. Let us make sure your contact choices match your daily habits, you will loose potential leads if you provide an opportunity for customers to ask for a quote by email – and you only check those emails every couple of days. If that is your habit let us make sure you receive calls or notifications to your phone. Nobody likes waiting and generally nobody does. A functioning, clear communication concept to your customer is the most important part for your online business card. It is one thing to look professional with your new website. It actually is professional to be available when business comes knocking.
Whatever your choice of communication concept is, I will set it up for you and we will test its functionality together. Done right once you can forget it and just let it work for you. The same is true for the way your website looks, all my business websites come with a guarantee to be designed until you like the look and feel of it. Unless you give me specific instructions to the look and feel you imagined I will simply have a go and make a draft design upon which you will tell me where to develop the layout to from there.
If you have a physical location open to customers I will of course implement a map to find you easily and make sure your opening hours are advertised prominently. What are the questions you are being asked all the time? If you have a list of what is keeping you busy answering the same over and over every day – it might just be the right idea to include the answers to those questions on your new website.
Cheap Websites for the Online Business Startup
Are you about to start your own online business and looking around for the best options? There is a lot of misinformation out there trying to take your money before you even get started. Don’t get drawn in by the multitude of “businesses for sale” for a lot of money. A cheap website will do just fine to start with and I will explain why. As always in life if things are too good to be true – they are. A lot of what is called a business for sale is really just a domain name and a newly set up website with all the best wishes for your success. Available for thousands of $$. A few things to remember:
- Paying for an excellent domain name does not mean you are paying for an established business. It will still have to be established in the marketplace before it returns any money on the investment
- If the business they are selling you is making so much money – then why are they selling it to you? Is it not fair to assume that if they made more money by keeping the website then by selling it to you that would be their chosen path?
- To avoid all frustration, if anyone is selling you a “business” rather than webdesign services insist on verifiable business data. You want to see their accounts and figures as is common practice if you bought any other business. Confirm these business numbers with visitor statistics to the website, assume no more than 1 sale for every 100 visits
And yet there is another far more convincing reason for starting from scratch. If you buy an expensive “business” rather than a cheap website like the one you can get here (for $250 including your online sales platform!) you are buying into an idea which was not yours. Your business will succeed because you are passionate about it. Buying an online wax candle store does not make you passionate about wax candles and you will not succeed.
If you are serious about becoming an online entrepreneur you will choose a business area suited to your interests. Products will sell because you have value to add which is information. You will find customers because you know your product, because it makes sense to you. Therefore, forget about the awesome sounding domain name with huge business volume you can buy for $20,000 and instead commit to a real business and put your money into advertising and generating sales rather than somebody else’s pockets.
I continue to find that in most cases the very basic cheap website deal I offer is sufficient for the startup online business. It gives you the freedom to create what you need and massive functionality through your own back end log in. 24/7 you can access your shop, create new products, add text and more – everything you need for your own particular online strategy.
Being an experienced webdesigner myself I am happy to help out by pointing you in the right direction. I do offer extra services like doing SEO for you but if you seriously want to get into it you want to do the hard yards yourself rather than paying somebody to do it. Thinking that all of this is already done simply because you pay a large sum of money for a website they call an established business is not always true.
The logical pragmatic way I recommend any online business startup is to start small and scale the webdesign services needed. As you see I sell website packages with higher level functions at higher costs. This can be added any time you need them and a custom quote is available when you need it. Gain some experience first, do the basics, establish a small business and grow with it. As you start doing business the real needs you have will become apparent and the cool things you were willing to pay for suddenly appear of no concern. Best of luck and looking forward to helping you get started!
Make Your Business Website do the Work
Do you need a website to represent your business? Do you think of a website as an online business card? For a long time an online business card is all you could get for small dollars and it was fine for a while, it still is fine if that is all you want. These days however you can have a cheap website which will actually do some work for you and bring customer functionalities, it can do real administrative work the small business owner often does himself on top of looking after clients and doing what you love best. Make sure you ask your web designer as to what it is that your website can do for you. The possibilities are endless, the deciding factor is your need. Make the right choices so your workload becomes lighter and your efficiency increases. Let us look at this very website you are looking at right now to give you an example of an implementation fully aimed at supporting a business workflow.
Remember that this website is an example of what I can sell you as a $250 cheap website. The first part is simple and that is aiming to look professional and visually appealing telling the potential visitor that yes I can create fine looking websites while at the same time allowing a lot of space for text elements. Beyond that I wanted a simple online store to sell my website options through my domain but also send out professional looking invoices with every order without me having to write those.
I really don’t like doing admin things like writing invoices and I am no good at it. If you get me to write letters they will all look different and each one is painful to put together. But not anymore, the chosen online store solution of my website does it all for me these days. I create only one invoice template and make it look the way I need it and give it a numbering concept – set up the basics. And now, every time a new customer orders one of my cheap websites he magically receives a perfect looking invoice with all the details for payment and accounting. I receive a notification in my email inbox telling me to start creating a website, not to do up an invoice. This is bringing a documented consistency to my invoicing process which I have never been able to achieve manually in the past. All my invoices automatically produced and stored in one place even providing me with clear sales performance overviews.
It is such a relief that my website now does the job I hate most. All I do is supervise the process. This is really just an example of what a basic website can do for you. For a little more money there is a lot more that is possible. What is it that you want your website to do? Do you want it to be your accounting software and not just produce invoices but do all of the accounting for you on top of it? It may save you buying a separate accounting software. Well I can only guess as to what exactly your specific needs are but you name it and I have it. Let me know what business process you want to automate and I will find the right solutions for you to choose from.
Set up and run an E-commerce online store
A function like an online store is included even with my cheap website deal for only $250. Running an online store means a lot of things to many people depending on what your product is or who your target market is. Upon buying one of my business websites we will match you with the store solution which makes best sense for your circumstances. The options are almost limitless and if you have a preferred shop module in mind let me know.
It is important to choose the right solution for its functionality to support your business model but also your website to workflow processes. A successful setup will integrate neatly with your existing efforts in book keeping, tax records and more. If you are new starting up an online business and thinking about how to do everything I recommend to start off with your e-commerce solution as a central starting point for everything you do will evolve around your online store. I will be happy to set up a few shop solutions for testing until we find the right one. I will put a good one on for you, you enter a few products and see how well the software works for you. Then you let me know about all the functions you hoped your online store would have but does not. The next store solution is only an installation away and with your feedback we find the right one for you before we finalize your website. It is easier sometimes to just try a solution and develop a feel for the options rather than defining your requirements up front.
Managing an online shop can be work intensive for the shop owner depending on how many products you sell, the promotions you run and the marketing activity you do. You need to stay on top of stock availability, incoming orders and more. If you only put up 4 products for sale the choice of store is not as important but if you have hundreds of products you probably have specific ways you want to import the data to minimize manual entry of product information. A lot of solutions offer direct import of data feeds. The best approach is to let me know up front in what format your input data is available.
Writing text to support your sales in your shop is just as important and equally time consuming. Don’t neglect the content of your website if you are starting an online shop. With all the time and work you invest into it, sometimes one forgets that it is the website which will be found by search engines and potential customers. Once your website is up and running and you are managing your shop I advise anyone who is serious about getting started to write new content on your website not just on a regular basis but every day. Spend as much time on writing relevant text as you do running your shop.
Cheap Website for Market Stall Holders
Are you a market stall holder earning your income by visiting markets and selling your product? A website can be an important part of your business, to help you advertise your product while you are not attending a market, making sales through your website and simply letting your customers know where you will be next.
Using my cheap website options I have tailored websites for market stall holders to suit their customer engagement strategy. For example I have produced an online store for a permaculture plant market stall holder. Now this stallholder hands out notes on how to grow the particular plant he sells. A simple link pointing back to the online store where all the growing notes are kept now makes it possible for happy customers to pass on specific product links to friends or look them up later as they have a question about the plant they bought. In this case I have integrated a QR code concept for each product the market stall holder sells. During market days he displays the product tag with the prices together with the product specific QR code. Customers simply get out their phone and scan the code and already are on your website. This is a simple way of generating extra sales from your market day attendance. How many times where you told that somebody will buy next time? Now you can simply point them to your online store.
Make the most of your market day presence, use your website to advertise where you will be next and what specials you have. Or run a newsletter to which potential customers subscribe to receive news about your offerings. Selling at markets you can have a great day and then the next you wonder why you bothered attending. Being able to promote your shop which is always open for business adds another crucial sales avenue to your toolbox and even bad market days can lead to business a few days down the road. Don’t miss out and don’t spend a fortune on your online presence, all you need is one of my cheap websites.
Payment Gateways Included with your Cheap Website
You notice that the the example of this very website describes a manual payment gateway setup. This is because the customer buying a product here does not normally wish to pay by Paypal nor does he need to be forced into an immediate payment. We are looking after business customers and most important is to provide proper invoices which are needed for proper accounting. Payment is guided to be completed directly into bank accounts which saves any fees for example from paypal. Designing inexpensive Websites I neither wish to pay those extra fees which I have to pass on to the customer nor is it necessary to use a third party in a business to business transaction.
However your needs may be quite different and this is to confirm that any payment method you wish to apply is included with every one of my cheap website deals. All services like paypal and the accepting of credit cards can be implemented seamlessly. This has for example been realized for this online store selling permaculture plants. The majority of the customers are private customers not businesses and while they need no invoice the option to use paypal reassures the customer and makes transfers simple. No chasing of outstanding invoices is needed. Any and all Payment gateways you ever heard of – if you want them they are included with your cheap website option. Let us discuss your needs and implement the best payment gateway option for your online presence.
How is it possible to provide such a Cheap Website?
I get asked how it is possible to provide a $250 website with any functionality at all. People are used to getting quotes from web designers ranging in the thousands of dollars. For starters I have a good wholesale arrangement for sourcing both domain names and hosting keeping these costs to a minimum. The main cost to any website just like most other things you can buy is labor, the work done for you. I can sell you a cheap website because I have a lot of experience and therefore get them done efficiently. Everybody has to get paid for their time so obviously I cannot spend a week on producing a $250 website.
By using the right tools and the right processes I achieve the efficiency needed in my work to keep prices low for you. In addition, the principle for all the functionalities I will produce for you is that you become the administrator of said functionality. If you just want a website that represents you and is an online business card for you – that does not apply, you need to do nothing much. However if for example you want me to set up a newsletter function for you which lets potential customers subscribe to it through your website you will have to do the jobs. I will set it up of course, then explain it to you and we test it together until you are happy. And then you work it. You produce the latest newsletter writing it and defining what it looks like by using the back end admin function – right on your own domain. You manage the list and all functions it has with the simple tools available. You don’t need to call me to do any of these things, but if you continue to do so, eventually we will have to talk about charging you for support hours I spend.
Therefore, if you are evaluating whether this is the right deal for you ask yourself how much of my time you are going to need. I am not talking about webdesign but support to get you started. Are you computer literate? Can you set up a new email service and link it to your outlook on your laptop? Have you used simple data entry software before? If your answer is no then you will probably struggle running your online store. If you want me to be the administrator of your online store activating and managing every single one of your products, putting it on sale when you run a sale or putting it on hold because you are out of stock – I can do it, we can talk about this and I will send you a custom quote but it will not be as part of a cheap website. My websites are built to set you free in terms of being able to fully control it yourself without incurring exactly these extra costs with your web designer. Most people who can use things like online banking and facebook or do their taxes online will be perfectly fine using this solution. If however you do not have such knowledge and you still want to get started please ask me for a custom quote so we can put together a more assisted approach which will over time and eventually teach you everything you know to work on your own.
I ask you to please be realistic and fair in your expectation when buying my extremely cheap websites and do not hesitate to ask me for the true costs of what you have in mind before we get started. I am happy to sell you a support hours package together with your website deal to cover more advanced support needs in running your content and functions. This being said 99% of all customers I deal with have no problem at all using the back end administration login and its functions.
All Cheap Website offerings are Fully Responsive
No matter which one of my cheap website offers you decide to purchase they are all created to be fully responsive to all device sizes. The question of having a responsive website has really come into existence with the ascent of the use of mobile devices to surf the internet. Due to the high and still increasing volume of data used by mobile users website owners can no longer ignore the question of responsive websites. Here some of the specific features of a responsive web design layout:
- Images automatically resize to fit the display they are viewed on, adapting to page dimensions and background
- Responsive websites have mobile specific menu features. You can see this as the screen resizes down the menu available goes from the traditional website displayed menu type to touch screen interfacing
- The website reorganizes its elements and the positioning of functions in order to make it user friendly on smaller screen sizes
Since 2015 search engines have implemented new search standards which disadvantage your website in search results delivered to mobile devices if your online presence is not able to deliver mobile friendly viewing. Is your current website mobile friendly? Test it on your own phone or tablet, see how it comes up. It may not be absolutely perfect but can it be used with a mobile device? If the answer is no, it is definitely time to upgrade with one of my website options which are perfectly designed to avoid any such issues. It is simply no longer an option to ignore the question of having a responsive website and as you can see there is no need to pay a lot of extra money to get one, even a cheap website can be fully responsive and assure you do not loose any visitors to your domain which could have brought you more business.
My Cheap Website on Your Server
I can work on your server of course however all of my website offerings include hosting on a professional server and also include a domain name. If you want me to work on your own server I will have to look at the available server environment and make you a custom quote. The reason I can work competitively is because I have standardized the server environment I use myself to make it very time efficient. Using a third party server means I have to spend more time on things which are already set up and ready to go on my own server and I would be resolving issues which I have already resolved. I find that I spend twice the time putting together a website on a server unknown to myself. If I have to spend twice as much time on creating a website the price will have to be double. It may sound strange but my websites are sold at a lower price with hosting then without.
Do you already have a domain name? Not a problem, ideally we simply transfer it to my provider so it can be linked with the server environment I use with all functionalities available. This transfer process will not cost you anything extra, it is included in all of my website package prices and the domain name of course remains in your name at all times. Alternatively you keep your own domain account and I give you the domain name servers for you to point it at.
How long will it take until my new Cheap Website is created?
Once payment for your chosen option has been received web design begins immediately. Except for more complex projects for which we would discuss delivery time lines in the quotation process your website will be online very quickly, first with a draft version for you to review and eventually approve. Generally the process takes about a week until you can take over your online presence. The time frame to deliver a website depends on you providing the required information, from text to photographs, brochures and logos you wish to see used. If your website need is particularly urgent let me know and you could be online within as little as 24 hours. If you have such an urgent need, please contact me before purchasing one of my cheap website options to make sure I am available to deliver it quickly, I may already be busy realizing another web design project.
Cheap Website Deal Pricing is for 2 years
Make sure you do the numbers right when comparing cheap website deals on offer. It used to be industry standard to sell business websites – all websites really – for a period of 2 years. Recently however domain name registrations increasingly offer one year options and web designers are starting to put out one year deals. As you compare pricing, take into account for how long the website service runs that you are purchasing and how much exactly the total cost is to you. All of my cheap website deals are priced for a 2 year period, this is 2 years including the domain of your choice, designed to your liking and fully hosted for the duration of these same 2 years. If you prefer to pay annual fees, let me know but most of my business website customers are happy not to have to deal with renewing their website on an annual basis. 2 years in my view is a good time period to run a website before considering a major overhaul to bring it up to date and match emerging industry standards.
Who is Behind Cheap Website?
In case you are wondering who is behind the cheap website offerings. I am a webdesign expert based near Bundaberg in rural South East Queensland. I am a sole trader with ABN 25 560 756 150 I started to design websites over 20 years ago and hold a Diploma in Web Publishing from the Swiss Institute of Information Technology which describes the diploma achievement in the following terms:
“The holder of this diploma has proven that he has the necessary knowledge to create business website concepts, layout and structures and is able to secure continued support and maintenance thereof. He is knowledgeable in the relevant principles of IT and is able to illustrate and implement means of supporting your business processes through your website.”
But that was almost 20 years ago now and the landscape of web design has changed dramatically. During this time I have been part of running a webdesign partnership of 6 years and I have continued my work on my own since then. Recently I have specialized in delivering complex word press websites and have been able to significantly increase the availability of functionalities to my customers by doing so. While web design has changed a lot and less coding is necessary due to the availability of agreed upon standard packages, it is still good to have an experienced web designer on your side who can still code if the need arises.
Not being bound by location and being able to do business anywhere is one of my favorite aspects of the webdesign trade.Using the internet, skype and other methods of communications I offer my cheap website design services to all of the Australian market and beyond.
