Frequently-Asked Questions

1) WHY DOES MY COMPANY NEED A WEBSITE?
A well-designed WebSite is a powerful tool for improving your business and provides an opportunity for local and global exposure. A WebSite is increasingly becoming an essential tool for doing business nowadays. A carefully planned WebSite helps you to connect with your current and potential customers, by matching their needs with your services.

2) HOW DOES A WEBSITE HELP MY BUSINESS?
When you compare the impact of a WebSite to traditional advertising, you begin to realize its remarkable potential. A WebSite can do much more than promote your business. It helps you to penetrate your local market, or introduce your business to the entire world. Having a WebSite makes your traditional advertising more cost-effective as well. It also provides an opportunity for your competitive suppliers to reach you.

3) WHAT IS THE COST OF A WEBSITE?
In comparison to the great waste of money involved in scrapping out-of-date brochures, it is very cost effective to add current information to your WebSite. Hosting a WebSite for an entire year is a far more cost-effective alternative to a one-time large ad in your local newspaper. You need not spend thousands of dollars on a static phone book or newspaper ad; instead, get a smaller ad that points to your beautifully designed, interactive WebSite!

4) WHY NOT DO IT YOURSELF?
That is an excellent question. Some people do build their own WebSites. There are hundreds of web construction tools available in the market and each one of them claiming to be the best. It is so tempting! How hard can it be? Well, the answer depends on how professional you would like the finished product to be, how much money you're willing to spend, and how long you're willing to wait. A combination of the best software tools alone will cost you a fortune. Then you'll either need a training course or two on how to use them all, and use them together to achieve the desired results, or you need to spend at least a few dozen hours with trial and error. A course on your image-editing package is a must! You'll also need to read a book on good site design to avoid "beginner" mistakes. Another book on HTML, Scripting... Also you'll need one that covers how to design pages that look good on any browser, on any platform, in any resolution, at any color depth. And don't forget to build a few sites for practice... there's no substitute for experience! With four to six months of your time and several thousand dollars spent, you'll finally be ready to begin building your own "professional-looking" WebSite. Although we might exaggerate certain elements a little bit, it should show you that you need to spend lot of effort and money before you are able to layout and build your very own WebSite graphics and html codes.
