Still not convinced? Check out more reasons:
To answer frequently asked questions
How much time do you spend on the phone or in person giving out information? Directions, your hours, services and products you carry. A website could be your trusted assistant handling trivia information.
People will look for you online
Sooner or later someone’s going to type your name or business into a search engine. If you don’t have a website then there search will end in the online yellow pages, or a review site. Yikes
Websites are the Ultimate Sales brochure
Just ask your competition because they have one. Whether you own a small business, restaurant, child care center, sell pies or cakes, or eBooks – websites are like brochures and they tell potential customers everything they need to know.
You’re open 24/7
A website allows your business, organization or church to be open 24/7. You probably answer the same questions for potential customers every day, all day. “What are your opening hours?” “How much do you charge?” “What is a cost?” Potential buyers can find this information on your website.
Click on my bookmark to the right and sign up with a great web hosting company that I use.
I selected this company because it takes just a few bucks to get started.
If you sign up for webhosting by clicking the bookmark with my picture on it, and follow the online instructions (only call customer service if you have questions, but make it clear that you want to register online through my link) – if you sign up through my link as a way to say thank you, I will write your homepage and About Us page web content. $150 value.
Why am I doing this? Because I’m an affiliate marketer for i Page, see link at bottom of the page.
The company hosts several of my websites.
Here’s why I prefer iPage over the bigger name companies:
They are offer the same perks and 24/7 customer service of the bigger companies and they offer a money back guarantee.
They offer affordable sign up rates because they do limited advertising.
Feel free to compare prices with any of the bigger webhosting companies. They want your house, car, and kidney.
Seriously, they have higher upfront fees and prices, fees average about $300.
i Page offer is great for two primary reasons:
They offer 2 year web hosting for about 40 or 5o bucks depending on when you sign up.
***IMPORTANT*** email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are NOT sure how to sign up for the hosting by clicking the i Page link on the bottom right hand corner of this page. It’s OK if you need to call the customer service number for help, but do NOT allow them to process your order over the phone, or I will not receive credit, and thus your bonus writing offer will NOT be valid.
