Why Call Us to Build & Manage Your Anacortes Website?
We have been building sites for 15 years.
No contract or long agreement to tie you down.
No big site design charge.
We treat your website just like it’s our own.
You get good results and a manageable price.
We work to make your site successful.
We are really easy to work with.
We are a close-to Anacortes WA website design company. We can serve small business clients from the northern suburbs of Seattle up to the southern Vancouver suburbs.
We work with small local companies in Skagit County and the rest of northwest Washington to start and improve their online marketing efforts in order to gradually grow their business each and every year.
We got started building and promoting websites back in 1999 or so. (Seems like a long time ago.)
We don’t do everything. We specialize in creating small, reliable and affordable websites that help bring more customers to a business owner.
What Would Your Site Look Like?
Your new site could probably look quite a bit like this one.
Your site would be set up pretty much like this one. Yours will have your own logo and the images and the written content will be different, but the overall layout might look similar to this one.
Your site will show your company logo in the upper left corner, your phone number in the upper right corner, a few nice images, bullet points that showcase your service’s key benefits, a column of sales copy, an email contact form and a bottom section that links to all the other pages.
Your site will have all the necessary pages — a home page, a blog page (you do not have to write a blog if you don’t want to), a service area page, a contact page, an about us page, and the legal and privacy pages. Plus, you have the option of adding additional pages either right away or as you go along.
Your site has two goals to accomplish. The first goal is to provide the necessary basic information about your business, such as what hours you are open for business, the types of services you perform, and how someone can get in touch with you. The second goal is to persuade prospective customers or clients you are a good choice for them to consider.
Are We the Right Choice For You?
No Anacortes web designer wants to turn any business away, but we know some types of businesses are much better-suited to our service than others are. So we really want to take on only those clients we think we would work well with.
To start with, we aren’t the right choice for big companies. If you’re already a growing company, there are several fancy site designers in downtown Seattle and Vancouver that will be happy to take you on.
Second, if you need a really complicated website, or one that requires a shopping cart because you want to sell products online, we’re not the best Anacortes web design company for that. Our specialty is not in elaborate sites or shopping carts. Building that style of site is not our specialty.
Our sweet spot is designing websites for small service businesses.
We have effective and affordable options that are perfect for local service businesses.
And we offer free tips and advice. After talking with you, if we don’t think we would be the best guys for your project, if we don’t think we are the best choice for your business — we’ll just tell you. And if we can, we may even recommend someone else.
Where We Do Our Work
We live right in north Bellingham, Washington. We think it’s great to have clients in the Whatcom-Skagit area, but we can work with you no matter where you live.
If there is a way we can meet over a cup of coffee, that’s kind of nice, but it isn’t always realistic.
While it’s nice to get together (if it’s convenient), we understand how busy your schedule can be. It really isn’t necessary for us to get together in the same room to work something out.
In most situations, we can just discuss your business and our services on the phone. If things work out, we can agree to a plan for moving forward. Then we hang up and we get started.
What Is the Cost Going To Be?
That’s a common question. Unlike most designers, we do not charge that big initial design fee. We also don’t add on those additional charges for logo design, domain name or hosting, etc. We just charge a flat monthly fee.
We have three packages you can choose from:
1. $75 per month
2. $100 per month
3. $150 per month
What Our $75-a-Month Web Package Includes
Our basic site development and hosting package includes these features:
• A fully-functioning website (pretty much like this one)
• Logo (use yours or we get one for you)
• Domain name (use yours or we get one for you)
• Web hosting
• Monthly site check-ups
• All necessary graphics
• Email (send site email right to your phone or computer)
• WordPress and Plug-in updates and fixes
• Essential site security
What the $100-a-Month Package Includes
Our mid-priced Anacortes web design and maintenance package includes everything listed in the base package, plus:
• Weekly site check-ups (rather than monthly)
• Advanced security
• Site backups
• Monthly reports
What the $150-a-Month Package Includes
Our top package includes everything that is mentioned in our mid-priced package, plus:
• Daily site check-ins (instead of weekly)
• Two free hours of additional work each month. This additional work could be undertaken to make site changes, improvements or additions. Typical examples of this work could include switching seasonal coupons or promotions, altering open hours, adding new service areas, or any other changes or additions you would like to make. This package gets you two hours a month of free work.
You Are In Control
Just because we build this website for you, you are never stuck with us. If one day you decide to leave us, you can easily to that.
We will hate to see you go, and it might hurt our feelings a bit, but it’s your site, you can do what you want. You can move your site to another host, let some other web designer work on it, or whatever you decide to do. You are in control of it.
And you always have full access to your site. We build it on WordPress, and you have all the site information, so you can make any changes you want. You can add pages, add posts, make edits, upload new photos, whatever you want to do. Or just have us do it. It’s up to you. You have the choice of doing as little or as much as you want.
We don’t think we need a contract. It seems like an unnecessary step. Your word is good enough for us.
If the day comes when you want to stop using our services, you just send us an email or call us. You can change your plan or cancel it whenever you want.
