Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Here's the bottom line. Today, web development and Internet marketing solutions don't need to cost thousands of dollars and here's why: TECHNOLOGY. The technology we have today allows anyone with a basic understanding of how web development works to build a great looking design. There are thousands of content management systems and web building platforms that make comprehensive knowledge of code unnecessary. Granted, having that knowledge definitely helps in creating a more complete and customized design. But you can still get a great site without shoveling out big bucks.
That's why we at SetMySite are so passionate about small businesses and helping them get online. Small business websites don't have to be complicated and they don't have to be expensive. They can be easy - easily created, easily managed, and easily marketed. That's why with SetMySite, you never pay a design fee and you never pay a per-hour rate. You only pay a low monthly payment to handle the month to month maintenance and administration.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. At SetMySite.com, we focus on delivering the most impressive designs at the most affordable price. You never get a template, cookie-cutter design. Everything we do is customized to your exact specifications. The majority of the work we do is custom design + hosting and management, meaning, we design the website from scratch and we then host and manage the website for our clients so they can focus on their work. Most of our customers are business owners and they're too busy to deal with their website. That's where we come in. We take over the management aspect of their website so anytime they need an update or a change on their website, we handle it for them. That's a big difference between us and our competitors. Most professional designers will charge you a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars up front, and then simply hand the website over to the business over and let them manage it. We have found that it is very common for business owners to simply not have the skill or time to take on this added task. We help business owners by give them an entire "web team" not just a website. Our customers will have a professional designer, dedicated account manager, hosting technician, webmaster, and marketing consultant all on-call for anything they need, for a low monthly fee.
Set My Site is your BIG PICTURE partner. We get your business online and visible. Our websites make your business look professional and legitimate and help you get found by new customers.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love talking to all kinds of business owners. Every business is unique and requires special attention. And that's one of our core competencies. SetMySite.com representatives are available to respond to your website questions and concerns. We're not happy until you're happy. And we'll continue to modify your website design until you are fully satisfied.
One of the best parts about my job is getting to see the smile on my client's faces (or hear the joy in their voices) when they see their finished design. But more rewarding than that is knowing we're helping our clients by giving them a custom design that truly expresses the brand and identity of their business.
Most of our clients either never had a website before or have had only a minimal web presence. It's a great joy for us to give them something they can be proud of. One of our clients told us recently, "I'm so happy I no longer need to feel embarrassed when I refer one of my customers to our website!" That's why we're in this business.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Most of my customers ask me... "why do I even need a website? I'm a tiny business." My response is simple. Today's world is a digital one, and it's pretty much expected that any professional that takes themselves seriously has a website. When a customer refers your service to friend, where's the first place that friend goes to find your business? It's not the Yellowpages, I can tell you that much. If you can't get found online, you're virtually invisible. And if your business isn't on the Internet today, people who are already actively looking for your products and services won't buy from you because they simply cannot find you. Be visible, be professional, be smart and get a website from Set My Site!
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. It's not complicated. Our pricing is simple and simply affordable: $29.95 per month - cancel any time.
There are a few instances where the monthly subscription rate may be higher or lower than our core price. If you have any questions about our pricing model, simply call us and we'll be happy to speak with you about your needs.
