For a free, no-obligation estimate for building your Website, please e-mail me.  I do a lot of work without the need to meet face to face with my clients.  That's the wonderful convenience of the World Wide Web.

mmarshall@spaciousskies.us

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Estimates are no-obligation; however, they are given with the understanding that the billing will be for actual charges.  I try very hard to stay within the estimate, but it's not always possible to meet the limits.  I will keep you informed if it appears that the costs will exceed the estimate.

Why should I have a Website? 

Tell who and where you are and how to contact you. 

  Establish a presence in the on-line community.  You'll find that you are expected to have an on-line presence these days.  If you do not, you'll be considered "old fashioned" and out-of-step with not only the business community, but by your peers as well.

Communicate your message to current and prospective clients and customers. 

  Provide educational links for your clientele. 
 

What we will consider as we develop your website 

1. Purpose for your website. 

2. Name of company or organization, location, phone numbers, fax number, e-mail addresses. 

3. Who are your customers? 

4. In what way do you serve your customers? 

5. Does your company have a statement of purpose?  If not, do you want to develop one? 

6. Recognition in the community - have you won any awards? 

7. Does your company support any charities? 

8. Are there other websites in your industry which would interest your customers and other web surfers, but wouldn't help your competition? 

9. Do you have a logo? If not, one can be designed - extra cost to you. 

10. Do you already have some printed brochures and/or newsletters from which we can work? 

11. Will you want photos on the website? Do you have them already? Who will take them?  I recommend that you have them - people will feel a connection to you if they've "met" you.

12. How about small photos and resumes of key staff members? 

13. Do you want one page or a Home Page with sub-pages? The addition of sub-pages will be more expensive to develop but will allow you more flexibility in providing information. 

14. How often do you plan to update your page? 

15. Do you want a response form on your Home page, or will an e-mail click-on be sufficient? 

16. "Bells and whistles" are nice and impressive, but only if you have a fast browser. More people than ever do, but still not everyone does, so using java applets, music and/or animated graphics may not be advisable; surfers will move on if your pages load too slowly. Relying on text for your the main points of your message will provide you with wider readership than will a lot of large photos and animated graphics. 

Requirements: 

A. You will need to sign up with a local Internet Provider (IP) and purchase enough space for a business site.  you might see if you can start small and only purchase more space if it becomes necessary.  If you want a dot.com (that is, your own "domain"), I can assist you ... there are additional costs involved. Example of a "domain" - mine is spaciousskies.us. 

B. Your IP must allow uploading from remote locations. 

C. You may want to arrange for more than one e-mail box on your site. 

Basic services include: 

1) Home Page, with sub-pages if desired. 
2) Hits counter, if desired. 
3) Registering with the best search engines. Monitoring the registration. 

Additional services are available.

Hints from Marge

How will people find my Web site?  

(1) Take advantage of the power of search engines by registering your page with your favorite ones. 

(2) Send the link to your page to all the people on your list of e-mail addresses.  Ask them to look at your page and then pass the link on to all their contacts. 

(3) Most e-mail programs have a way for you to add a "signature" to each message you send out, so put a link to your page in your signature. 

(4) Put your link on your business card, on your letterhead and in your ads. 

Who can put pages on the Internet?  

Anyone!  Businesses, churches, nonprofit organizations, individuals, families, schools, clubs - you name it and it can be done. 

You don't have to have a very big budget, because you can even put up a page on a free site, such as Angelfire, Tripod and GeoCities! 

There are many reasons to create Web pages; for example, here are two children's memorials which I have put on the 'Net.
