Let's Get Your SmallBusiness Online Today!


YOU NEED A WEB SITE.


First Things First


If you want to get your small business online, well, the first thing you need is a business.

Now, we are not trying to be flippant here. So many people start off with “I want to make a ton of money online.” Or better yet, “I wanna do e-commerce,” and that is the extent of the thought process.

The web is just another marketing medium. It works in addition to TV, radio, print ads, direct mail, and the all-important word of mouth.

There are no "Get Ranked Quick Schemes” for search engines and there are definitely no get rich quick schemes that we’d endorse.

You use the web as just another tool of business, not a gimmick.

And honestly, if you are looking for that sort of stuff, you may want to just exit our site right now, because we are only interested in helping serious entrepreneurs.

Success is hard. It requires perseverance, determination, and realistic expectations.

So, first, you need a business. If you do not have a business, you at least need to have a business plan and know what products or services you plan to offer.

BY THE WAY - This is a long page. You may want to grab a snack and beverage of your choice. Long, but worth it. Your business may depend upon you knowing this.

Or just Contact Us today and set up a consultation to get your small business online

Domain Name


You'll need a domain name, like yourbusinessname.com (or .net, .org, .us, and so on). These run anywhere from a couple dollars per year to $35 or $40, depending upon which company you buy from and the specials they are running.

Some domain name registrars to consider:

Most people think that many of the good domains are taken, true. But, there are still plenty of creative choices available. We can help you find a domain that will be part of your marketing message.

Contract with us and we take care of all of the details for you, for only $10 per year (first year free with each web design package).

NewDrone.com charges $10 per year for domain names for sites that it designs. Our cost is $8.95, so the mark-up of $1.05 per domain is just a small administrative fee.

You don't need to have your domain registered with us for us to do your web site. There are cheaper offers out there by bigger companies. If you have the time, shop around.

You need to own your domain. Don’t let anyone own your domain but you. When your web designer has completed your site, your web designer should tell you what the username and password is at your domain registrar. We will.

Hosting


When we do your web site design or re-design, we include the hosting for the first year.

If you are a do-it-yourself type of person, then you may prefer to design the web site yourself, and just use our services for hosting. We can do that, and we offer a simple plan just for that.

Frankly, if all you need is hosting, and you are willing to do much of the tech work yourself, or you just enjoy it, then you may want to look to some of the big companies.

"Why would we send business away?" you may ask. Well, we're not, really. Here's the catch. yes, there is a catch (bet that's the first time someone was up-front with you like that, eh?).

We are affiliates with several of the BIG hosting companies. We get a commission on every person that signs up for their services through one of our links.

Since our $30 per month hosting isn't the best solution for the die hard do-it-yourselfer, we decided to go a different route.

Order hosting by clicking on one of the links below, and we'll give you 50% of our commission. You win, we win.

EMail


You'll need an e-mail address like john.doe@yourbusinessname.com. You could use an AOL or Yahoo account. But an e-mail account that matches your business and your domain name will look much more professional.

We offer POP3 accounts as a standard offering. But, we also offer IMAP accounts.

We are one of the very few affordable web design and hosting companies that provide IMAP. It is so rare that you probably have not heard of it. This site provides an excellent explanation of the difference between POP3 and IMAP.

If you need to access e-mail on the road, IMAP is the way to go. Plans start at $5 per month, Contact Us for a quote depending upon your needs.

Design


Yea, finally, way down on the page, we get to what most people think of when they think WEBSITE.

The design is the look and feel of your site, as well as the architecture and navigational structure. Ideally, the best place for design ideas for your web is from your existing marketing material (fliers, brochure, or even your business card can provide a skilled web designer with inspiration).

If you don’t want to spend the money on a custom design, then go with a template. It probably won’t be the best online representation of you and your brand, but it will get you online for a very affordable monthly fee.

Good Places for Templates and Design Inspiration

You can use MacroMedia's Dreamweaver, Microsft's FrontPage or Adobe's GoLive to layout and setup your site. There are also many Site Builder tools that let you build a web site from a set of canned templates, and yes, they look canned.

We offer custom design that tells the story of your business. Your web site is another advertising medium, just like TV, radio or newspaper. You should make it professional.

We can help. See our web design packages for more information.

E-Commerce


E-Commerce, or electronic commerce, is the buying and selling of goods and services online. It offers many promises as well as perils for the small business.

The promise is that you can sell to a global customer base (that's right, 5 billion people) without needing a traditional brick and mortar store front. You are no longer bound to the demographics and market area of where your business is physically located.

The peril is that many businesses can be pulled into pie-in-the-sky schemes, built upon unrealistic expectations, that can doom you to failure.

We've provided a few links below to start your reading on e-commerce.

The subject is voluminous.

We can help.

If you are interested in selling your products or services online, contact us today!

We offer special deals on merchant accounts through our partnership with e-online data. We have off-the-shelf shopping carts and online store tools to use with your web site, plus we can always custom-build to meet your specific needs.

Maintenance


The ability to make changes to your text, links and photos when you need to is called content management by web design folks.

You’d be surprised the number of times that we hear small business owners lament about how they can only change their web site once a year, or they have to wait days or months for their web “guru” to make simple changes.

In response to this demand, we provide our own content management system, EditBEE™, which we provide as an add-on to any web site we build. It gives you as much control as you want.

But, time is money, always. And you may not have the time to handle the content changes yourself.

We can help there as well.

We offer a monthly maintenance agreement in lieu of EditBEE™.

See what all we offer with our web design packages.

Search Engine Submission


I've always wondered if you can gauge when something is smoke and mirrors on the web when it becomes an acronym.

Search Engine Optimization (or SEO) is one of those things. There are millions of companies offering to Get Ranked Quick Schemes (google "seo company" and you'll get 10,200,000 results). Some of these are legitimate, but they are costly.

Bottomline, nothing beats good, old fashioned common sense and good content.

There are many companies out there specializing in SEO. We do to.

In Closing


But, if you want a custom look that matches your business image, and if you want someone who will be a phone call away, then you want NewDrone.
