FAQ

When it comes to web design and the internet there are ALWAYS questions that come up. Many Saint Louis small businesses don't know where to get the answers. Or for most family owned businesses, they just don't have the time to ask the questions.

Here at Local Web Creations, we have the answers! Commonly we're asked questions like "How much does a website cost?" "I've done without a website for years, why do I need one now?"

The following is answers to some of these commonly asked questions. Should you have a unique question, feel free to contact us ! We would be glad to help!

Q: Does my business REALLY need a website?

A: Of course! Consider a website as your giant public bulletin board, where anyone in the world can find out where you are located, what you offer, what makes you unique, and how to contact you. Keep in mind that a website is not just advertisement, but a multi-functional communication tool. A site gives you the ability to reach customers that would otherwise never knew who or where you were.

Q: How much does a website cost?

A: There are three basic costs to a website.
• Domain Name
• Hosting
• Web Design

A Domain Name is the unique web address users will use to find your site. (www.yourbusiness.com) The cost to register a domain name is about $35 per year.

Once a site has been created, it must be hosted on a public server so users can access it. Costs vary from one company to the next. Prices range from $10 - $79 per month. Pricing depends on the services selected.

The design of the site is the most expensive, as well as the most important. The amount of pages, the content used all factor into the cost. Keep in mind that once a page is created...it's yours to use and does not 'expire', unlike other forms of advertising/communications. At Local Web Creations, we have a budget to fit most any business. Be sure to contact us for a personalized quote!

Q: I don't sell product online do I still need a website?

A: Of course! Just because you are not selling items online, does not mean you don't need a web page for customers to find you. The 'Yellow Pages' are becoming a thing of the past. More people search for businesses online through serach engines like 'Google, Bing, or Yahoo'. These search engines search the internet for a match to the search term. If your not 'online' with a website, you may not ever be found!

Q: I already have a web page on a an organizations site.

A: If your like most businesses, you may have your name referenced at your local Chamber Of Commerce or a other similar site. This is not enough. Just because your contact information is listed amoungst hundreds of other businesses this doesn't help users find you or what you have to offer. The reason to have a unique site is to stand out. Show the world what you have to offer and why they should come visit you and not the competition. Your customer is out there looking for YOU, why not make it easy on them!

Q: I only need help with Social Media.

A: Local Web Creations has packages just for you! If you already have a website that your satisfied with, but want to explore other growing media outlets....social media like 'Facebook' is the next step.
