Frequently Asked Questions include:
The starter page is designed to be a "business card," "post card," or "flyer" on the weba way for people to find you and learn a summary of what you offer. Starter sites contain what is needed and may certainly be found in search utilities, however, they are not optimized to any great deal. You may renew the starter page for a second year for the same price including up to a one-hour "round" of updates. Green Mountain Reproofing is an example of a business with a niche market, and the starter page renewal has been more than adequate for their needs. We encourage you to plan to take the next step, however. Most businesses will find it beneficial to expand their web marketing and customer service. A great examples of this is Windy Ledges, accessible above, where you can view the original starter page and the website into which it has grown. The reality is that within 3, 6 or 9 months you will become more familiar with the internet, will see some results from your initial starter page presence, will get excited about having your business on the web, and will want to begin growing your website.
Growth of your website will involve two or three cost components. Development and initial marketing are typically one-time up-front costs. Hosting your site will become an ongoing fee. Realistically you will also need to maintain your site and may need to allocate additional funds towards marketing/promotion on an ongoing basis.
The starter package was essentially priced to allow an hour or two of development time including acquiring your materials and purchase of your domain name with hosting being discounted. Hosting an active websitemore than a static business cardwill use additional resources and include more robust services including greater bandwidth, traffic measurement software, additional email options, FTP access, and MadRiverWeb marketing where possible.
