Why Choose Us to Build and Manage Your Website?
We have been creating sites for more than 15 years.
We treat your website just like it’s our own.
No set up fee, just one affordable monthly invoice.
You’ll be happy with the results.
No long-term agreement to sign or tie you down.
We are there to make your site successful.
We’re pretty easy to work with.
We are a Lynden WA website design company.
We work with small, local companies around Whatcom County and the rest of upper Western Washington. We work with these companies to establish and build their online marketing efforts in order to grow their business.
We got started with building and promoting websites back in 1999.
We don’t build every kind of website. We specialize in creating small, affordable and effective sites that are designed to drive new customers to a business.
Your New Website – What Will It Look Like?
In most cases, your new site will probably look quite a bit like this one.
Sure, you will have your own logo and the pictures and the written content will all be different, but the overall layout will probably look similar to this site.
Your new site will show your company logo in the upper left corner, your business phone number in the upper right corner, some nice images, bullet points of your company’s key features and benefits, a column of information and sales copy, a contact form for email and a bottom section that links to your other pages.
Look, online marketers have experimented with page design extensively over the past 20 years, they know what type of page design works best. There is no need to try to reinvent the wheel.
Your site has two main goals. The first is to provide the basic information about your business, such as the types of services you offer and when you are open for business. The second goal is to make the argument to prospective clients or customers that you are a good choice for them to contact and do business with.
Are We the Best Fit For You?
No Lynden web designer wants to turn a potential job away, but we know some companies are much better-suited to our services than others are. So we will only take on clients we know we can do a great job for.
For instance, we aren’t the best fit for big companies. So if you are already a good-sized company, there are several website design firms in downtown Seattle that will be happy to sign a contract with you.
And if you want to sell products through a shopping cart on your new site, we’re not the best Lynden web design company for that. Our specialty is not in setting up product databases and selling through a shopping cart. Building that style of site is not our main specialty.
Our designing sweet spot is small service businesses.
If you offer a local service, we have an affordable and effective web design package that is perfect for local WA service businesses.
We offer free advice and tips. We can chat on the phone and if we don’t think we would be the best choice for your project — we’ll just tell you. We might even be able to recommend some other firm.
Where Are We Working?
We live right in Ferndale, Washington. We think it’s pretty great to have our clients in the Whatcom County, but, realistically, we can work with someone no matter where they are from. There isn’t a need to actually get together face-to-face.
That being said, it is kind of nice to meet over a cup of coffee at Wood’s or someplace else. We can probably work something out.
While it’s nice to get together, we understand you’re busy and finding a couple of free hours in order to meet isn’t always possible. Again, it really isn’t necessary for us to sit down in the same room. This isn’t difficult like rocket science.
Most likely, we can just talk on the phone and work it out. If we agree to a plan for going forward, we hang up and just get started.
What Will Our Design and Hosting Service Cost?
Unlike most designers, we do not charge a site design fee or set-up fee. Most designers charge a bunch up front, and then when the site is done, you’re pretty much out on your own.
And if your site doesn’t work very well with pulling in new business, what are you going to do? You’ve already paid the designer. It’s your problem now.
We don’t do that. We don’t charge any design fee. We just charge a flat monthly price and we take care of everything for as long as you want us to.
We have three price packages you choose from:
1. $75 per month
2. $100 per month
3. $150 per month
What the $75-a-Month Package Includes
Our standard website development and hosting package includes:
• An attractive, fully-functioning website (much like this one)
• Domain name (use yours or we get one for you)
• Web hosting
• Logo (use yours or we get one for you)
• All necessary images
• Email (you get site email sent to your phone or computer)
• Essential site security
• Monthly check-ups (when something breaks, we fix it)
• WordPress and Plug-in updates as they occur
What Our $100-a-Month Package Includes
Our mid-priced web design and maintenance package includes everything from the standard package, plus:
• Advanced site security
• Site backups
• Weekly site check-ups (instead of monthly)
• Monthly security and health reports
Our $150-a-Month Package
Our top package includes everything already in our mid-priced package, plus:
• Daily site check-ins (instead of weekly)
• Two hours of additional work each month. The work could consist of making site changes, improvements or additions. Typical projects might include swapping out seasonal coupons or promotions, changing work hours, adding new pages or improving existing content.
You Control Everything
We build and manage your site, but you will never be stuck with us. If you ever decide you want to leave us, you can do it.
Of course, we will be sad to see you go, and it might hurt our feelings a bit, but it’s your site, you are able to do what you want with it. You can take your site and move it somewhere or give it to a relative to manage or some other web designer. Whatever you decide to do is fine. There are no issues.
And while you have your site with us, you always have full access to your it. Since it’s built on WordPress, you can log in and make changes anytime you want. You can add posts or pages, make edits, upload a new photo, or do whatever you want.
Or you can have us do it. It is totally up to you. You have the option of doing as much or as little work as you want.
What is the Contract Like?
That’s our trick question. There is no contract to sign. We’re not some big city firm. We live in Ferndale. Your word is good enough for us.
If one day in the future you want to stop using our service, you simply call us or send us an email.
You can cancel or modify your plan at any time.
