Basic Information Essentials

Curb Appeal?
Curb Appeal?

What is your vision for a website? Remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A website appeals to each and every individual in different ways. One may see something catchy and browse for a while. Another may see nothing and leave after the first open. Then again, another viewer may inadvertently find something interesting in the blog post – who knows? The combination of possibilities go on.

So what are we saying? Yes, you got it… there is not one website that pleases everybody. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Therefore it is best to stick with the purpose, the aim, the goal, the objective or the reason for the website. On the first page, the question why must be answered:  Why this website? Then we follow with who owns the site, and what products the business sells, or the services offered to the public? Followed by where the business is located and how can the business be contacted. That’s it. Basic information with just the facts.

After the basic information is presented, we can include pages for customer comments, feedback, a guest book, a blog, even a gallery of photos.

The possibilities are endless. Get a hold of us and we will build you a website with curb appeal, that will speak highly of you and your business.

The Purpose of a Website

No job too small
No job too small

You’ve heard the expression, “Curb Appeal”. Realtors insist on curb appeal. This is one factor that brings prospective buyers to look at the property listed.

The same goes for a website. Eye-catching, filled with good information, easy on the eyes, beckoning, user-friendly. All these terms are great. But, bottom line is – what is it that you want your website to do for you?

Why a website? Well, a website could be a personal page – where you write down thoughts as a matter of daily routine. This kind of website you can do quite easily yourself. You can use Google, Yahoo, GoDaddy, Weebly, Bravenet, WordPress – there are many good service providers out there – mostly FREE.

Then you could have a personal business website. Approached with seriousness, this kind of website speaks for you and your business, your product, your contact information, your services offered, rates, etc. This kind of website you still can do yourself – quite easily – but then, as your business takes off, do you have time to maintain it? Time to keep the information fresh? Updated? Relevant? I doubt it. Would you ask your smart phone savvy 6-year old to maintain your business website for you?

Here is where we invite you to consider our offer to design, create and maintain your website. We can do a great job for you without breaking your piggy bank. If you have a service to offer, product to sell, a home business you want known, we will create your site, maintain it with decent, well-written content. At Web Buenavista no job is too small.

Sure You Can… But

Friends call and ask me, “Hey, how hard is it to build a website?”

I reply, “Not hard at all.”

“You think I can build my own business website?” my friend continues.

“Sure you can. What’s holding you back?”

“Work. But I need to get my woodworking shop on the Internet and soon.”

Wonderful. Great. More power to you. Go for it Dude.

A couple of weeks pass. My friend calls me, “Hey, business has picked up. I’ve got a dozen orders and some new products. I need to show the pictures. Also show some modified products for a slightly higher price. I need to change some of the old prices and post photos. Man, I didn’t know how much time this takes. Just to post photos. I need to be in the shop. I’ve got orders for picnic benches, chairs, and stools. Man, I don’t have time for this.”

The above scenario is not unusual. Nothing new here. So why don’t you just – at the very start – let us make your business website for you? We have a couple of slots left. By this we mean we are not taking on anymore new customers. We want to keep our turn-around time short for all requests: changes, additions, deletions, alterations, updates and what not.


WEB Presence

Life's Road
Life’s Road

Imagine a customer searching for information, or a service, or a product. This would-be customer isn’t going to open up the yellow pages, go over the fine print, or rummage through last Sunday’s paper to find the information. Nope. No Sir. But they might call a friend on their smart phone and ask questions, or ask an operator to direct them, or even wait in line until the next agent becomes available.

Welcome to today’s brave new hi-tech world. Pen and Paper you say? Pencil and napkin? Na-ah. More like notes posted on a smart phone or a voice message reminder recorded on a smart machine. Then what… well, that is where the world-wide web comes in. It is the Internet folks!

Is your small business online? Are you on the Internet? Because if you aren’t, folks are liable to never find your business. The solution is simple. You need a website for your small business.

Buenavista built brand websites are simply the best. Why? Because we custom build each site to fit your business. Sure there are free website providers out there. They will entice you, cajole you, make you feel like a fool for not taking them up on their offer.

We don’t do any of that kind of selling. We want you to want to have a website. We want you actively involved in the content. We want you talking to us long after the website goes online – to update the information, to give us feedback, etc. We want you to seek us to build you a Buenavista website and be proud about it.
