What can a website do for me?

You can find hundreds of reasons, but there are a few general statements that may help you realize your needs. First a website can reach millions of people that might not otherwise be available. Second, customers can view products, services, or whatever you want to share from the comfort of their own home. No matter what type of business you are in, there are ways to grow and make money on the web for you.

Why does it matter how it looks as long as it works?

When you recieve a visitor to your website, they will instantly percieve the quality of your services or products. The first impression a customer or potential customer gets depends on the appearance of your website and how fast it loads. A visitor will be interested and explore your site if it is appealing and easy to navigate. You are marketing yourself and your business to the world over the Internet and it is important to show your best.

I don't think a website will do anything for me, am I right?

No, many people overlook the various products, services, or business processes they can include on a website. Any communication or interactions that happen within your business can be made easier and more effecient by the web. Your business will save money and time while appealing to a much greater audience, the world.

What does “Website Maintenance” or “Website Updates” mean?

This refers to changes made to your website after the initial design and setup. Keeping a website up-to-date is essential in having repeat visitors to your site. Updating the site with sales, articles, new products, newsletters, press releases, and links are all examples of website maintenance.

What is a domain name and how do we get one?

A domain name is a unique name that identifies an Internet site (i.e.: www.companyname.com). We can register your domain name(s) for you through our partner site. You will need to renew your domain name every year unless you originally register your domain for a longer period of time. A domain name should be registered before the design process begins.

What is web hosting?

A web host is a company that leases space on its server to hold all your website files and displays them on the Internet. A monthly fee is determined, depending on how much server space you require and what other special features you would require, such as how many mailboxes, SSL (secure socket layer for shopping cart to encrypt private information), etc. Your web hosting needs to be renewed ever year unless you purchased it for an longer period of time. Again, We can provide you with web hosting through our partner site.

Do you submit our site to search engines?

Yes, we submit your site to major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN as part of your website package. Once your site has been submitted to the top Search Engines, it may take several weeks to actually spider and list your web site in their directory.

Website Content - What do I put on my site?

That would depend on the goals of your web site. If you run a business, you would include as much information as possible about your products or services that your customers would need from you. A dull and boring website is no place visitors want to be. First impressions count!

How do I check the progress of my website during the design process?

You are kept abreast of the progress of your webiste through email. Once pages are completed, we will send you an email with a link to our website testing site for your approval and any changes you may have.

Do I own my website?

For all intents and purposes, yes. We'll ask you to promise not to turn yourself into a web design company and compete with us, but yes, if you decided at some point to part ways with A Fresh Approach Media, you'll be able to take your website with you - graphics, photos, website pages, etc.
