You’re Probably Thinking To Yourself…

My business is growing slower than I anticipated.

I make just enough to cover my monthly costs, but not enough to go on holiday when ever I want.

I could really do with a constant flow of new clients and a fatter bank balance.

What I really need is a whole lot more exposure for my business to get my name out there.

Well you wouldn’t be alone in your thoughts, many brands and business’ face this dilemma.

So what’s the golden answer to this question? Keep Reading….

Yes You Guessed It

By now you probably figured out that it’s best to get a website.
This way you could find hundreds of new clients, get rich and retire in the bahama’s.
When you’re finished day dreaming reality sets in and the brain starts to churn out a million questions:

  1. What are the costs involved to get a stunning website ?
  2. How long will it take to get it designed ?
  3. Who should I trust and use for this project?

Sounds like a plan, so when do we get started?

After going on the internet and searching for terms like “website design” a sea of results pop up for you to sift through.
The more you sift the more confused you start to feel.

  1. Why are all the prices so different ?
  2. Do website designers actually speak a language I understand?
  3. How do I know what package to choose?

Through all the confusion this is what many people do….

Maybe I can try my hand at building my own website. You’re thinking a website for free !(Now theres a great idea).
You search again and this time for the term “free websites” and find there are plenty of websites that provide service and promise the world.
You design your free website using the free point and click controls.
As you’re designing your own custom website you discover some restrictions.
Its free BUT… you can only do so much or some features are only reserved for premium users.
What ever happened to free?

At the end of it all your website doesnt look nearly as nice as was initially promised.
Free & Easy I think not !

The honest truth is….

You going to have to outlay a little capital to get a decent website presence.
Nothing comes for nothing like all things in life.
If you want something worthwhile you are going to have to invest some time, effort and capital.
The great news is there is a solution that you can start with and build on in time.
A solution that can be eventually developed into a fully fledged website that looks good like what you hoped for when you started out.
