For many businesses – particularly home-based ones – the idea of shelling out for a website is not always top of the list of financial priorities. Increasingly, these small businesses are relying on Facebook instead in the early days, and this is something we’re noticing more and more when verifying and approving listings on Google Maps.
The other thing we hear quite often is “we’ll just throw something together in [insert free web builder here] for now, and get a proper site sorted later”. Let’s face it, there are plenty to choose from, which is why we’ve not named any specifically above. The likes of Wix, Weebly, Site Builder, etc have all got their place, but doesn’t your new business idea deserve something better from the start?
Don’t get me wrong, if one of these free builders will do all that you need, then go for it! If not, then why waste time and money starting again further down the line? Why not start with something that can grow with your business and do all that you need… bit by bit, as and when you’re ready?
Chances are you don’t need an all-singing, all-dancing, £500+ website today. You may just want a page or two to establish your online presence, with your own domain name and business email address, and then add more content in the coming weeks and months as the business grows and develops. That’s exactly what our “pay as you grow” website packages are designed to do.
We’ve worked with a few clients on this basis already as a trial, and are now preparing to roll this out as a formal ‘package’. Prices aren’t finalised as yet, which means there is some flexibility to set this up to work with your budget. It won’t be this way forever though, so if this is of interest to you, get in touch with us today.
