Why Choose Us to Build & Manage Your Website?
We have been creating sites for 15 years.
We treat your site as if it’s our own.
No contract to tie you down.
No big up-front design cost.
We have affordable monthly plans.
You get good results.
We are easy to work with.
We are a Blaine WA website design company. We serve small business clients from Snohomish County up to the Canadian border.
We specialize in working with small local companies in Whatcom County and the rest of NW Washington to either start or improve their company’s online marketing efforts. Our objective is to help these businesses gradually grow their revenue each and every year.
Back in 1999, we started building and promoting websites.
But we don’t build websites for big companies. We specialize in creating small, affordable and reliable sites for small business owners.
If We Built Your Site — What Would It Look Like?
Your new website will probably look a lot like this one.
It will be set up pretty much like this one. Your site will have your own logo and images and content, but the overall layout should look similar to this one.
Your home page will have your company logo in the upper left corner. Your phone number will be in the upper right corner. It will have a few nice images and some bullet points that show off your service’s key benefits. There will also be a column of text that discusses your business, an email contact form and a bottom section that links to the other pages.
Your site will also have all the necessary pages — a home page, a blog page (it will be up to you whether you want to actually blog or not), a page that lists the locations you work, an about us page, a contact page, and the legal and privacy pages. You have the option of adding additional pages either right away or anytime as you go along.
We set your site up to accomplish two main goals. The first goal is to give visitors all the primary information about your business. These details include the hours you are open for business, the types of services you perform, and how visitors can get in contact with you.
The second goal is to actually persuade those prospective customers to see you as a good choice for them to do business with.
Are We Your Right Choice?
No Blaine or Birch Bay web designer wants to turn business down, but some types of businesses match up to our services better than others are. So it is in everyone’s best interest if we take on only those clients we think we would work best with.
So who aren’t we suited for? We aren’t the right choice for a big company. If your company is already past the small business phase, there are several design companies in downtown Seattle or Vancouver that will be happy to sign you up.
Second, if you need a really complex website, we may not be the best Whatcom County web designer for that. If you want to sell products from your site, or you want to have an online paid membership program, that’s not our specialty. We don’t normally build elaborate sites or shopping carts. Creating that style of site is not our specialty.
Our expertise is creating websites for small service businesses.
We offer effective and affordable options that can be perfect for local service businesses.
And we don’t mind just talking with people. Advice and opinions are always free. After discussing your project, if we don’t think we would be the best choice for you, if we don’t think we would be a great choice for your business — we’ll just tell you. And if we can’t do it, maybe we can recommend someone who would be a good fit.
Where Do We Work?
We live right in Ferndale. We think it’s great to have clients in the Blaine and Birch Bay area.
If it works out, maybe there is a way we can meet over a cup of coffee. It’s kind of nice to put a face to a name, but sometimes getting together isn’t always realistic.
We understand how busy your schedule can be, but it it’s convenient, maybe we could meet up.
Typically though, we can just discuss your business and our service on the phone. If you like what you hear, we can agree to a plan to move forward. Then we hang up and we get started.
What Does It Cost To Get a Website Designed in Blaine?
We’re a little different than most designers. We do not charge a big upfront design fee. We also don’t add on those extra charges for logo design, domain name or hosting. Instead, we just charge a flat monthly fee.
We have three monthly packages you can choose from:
1. $75 per month
2. $100 per month
3. $150 per month
Our $75-a-Month Web Package
Our basic site hosting package includes these features:
• A complete website (your site will like this one)
• Web hosting
• A Domain name (we use yours or get one for you)
• A Logo (we use yours or get one for you)
• Regular monthly site check-ins
• All images and graphics
• WordPress and Plug-in updates
• Email (your site email can be sent right to your phone or computer)
• Essential site security
Our $100-a-Month Package
Our middle Blaine web design and maintenance package includes everything contained in the base package, plus:
• Weekly site check-ins (rather than monthly)
• Advanced security
• Site backups
• Monthly reports to you
Our $150-a-Month Package
Our top package includes everything that is contained in our mid-priced package, plus:
• Daily site check-ins (instead of weekly)
• Two free hours of additional work every month. We can use this time to make site changes, improvements or additions. Whatever you want to do. This work could include switching seasonal promotions or adding coupons, changing open hours, adding new service areas, or making other changes or additions. This package gives you two hours a month to work with.
You Are Always In Control
Just because we build the website for you, you are always in control. You are never stuck with us. If you decide to leave us one day, you can just do it.
We will hate to see you go, and our feelings might get hurt a bit, but it’s your site, you can do what you want. You can move your site to a different host, let a different web designer take it over, or whatever you decide to do. You are in charge of it.
And while we are managing your site, you always have full access to it. We build it using WordPress, and you have all the site information, so you (or whoever you want) can login and make any changes you want. You can add a new post or page, edit a page, upload a new photo, 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 to do.
Not a Contract in Sight
We don’t think a contract is needed. It seems like an unnecessary step. Your word is good enough for us.
If some day in the future you want to stop using our services, you just call us or send us an email. You can cancel, upgrade or downgrade your plan whenever you want.
Call 360-746-8065 and Let’s Discuss It
We are both probably right by the phone anyway.
