Websites are CHEAP!

I see a lot of cheap websites being sold these days. You can have a website from a simple template setup and running within a few hours if you know where to go, and you could spend less than the price of a pair of theatre tickets.
The problem is much like the dilemma of printing. The actual product will vary a little when you spend more or less, but if you are building a business, the real value is in the words and images you use, which is usually measured in the response you get.
So even if you are limited to buying a cheap website, be sure you have the content set up to give you the return on your investment. That comes from choosing the right people to build your content and marketing plan.

good luck! read more

Telemarketing about website security

Some marketing plans are not really thought out too well.

I had a very intelligent client who thought clearly enough when a telemarketer rang recently claiming to be from Netregistry. They said, “we scan all our customers web hosting, and found that yours does not have security installed.” Presumably the next sentence was going to be ‘we can move your site and host it for you on our secure server’.  read more
