Website Setup, Content, and SEO Packages for Small Business Marketing – PRICES
Getting Started Package – Three Month Duration
This package gets you online and begins the process of getting you found by searchers. You get a professional WordPress theme that stays current and updated. I need about an hour of your time to understand your business, your customers, and your goals. After that, your website will typically be launched (or updated) and ready for business within one week.
Even if you aren’t concerned about developing sales or leads online, having a website makes you more legitimate in the eyes of your customers. When you have no (or poor) online presence, chances are high you’re losing business without even knowing it.
Here’s a question to consider: If you want to succeed in business, how can you NOT afford a professional design, content, SEO, and marketing strategy?
