Yeah, it can be confusing!

Your web site is a lot more than just words and pictures on a computer screen somewhere -- it is an introduction to your company and an invitation to do business with you. As such, your web site should reflect your passions, your vision and your values, not the artistic integrity of a web page template.

At Internet 6, we don't simply build web sites; we focus our efforts on helping you build your business. We begin by providing professional web site services at very reasonable prices. Once your web site is built, we host your site and submit it to search engines. Then we maintain it for you, updating your information when you tell us it needs to be changed, and resubmitting it to search engines when appropriate.

Since 1997, Internet 6 has helped over 100 companies and independent professionals establish their web site and web presence. Our structured approach to site building starts with a strong foundation, then adds features and depth as your needs increase.

We don't just get you on the web -- we get you found! A great web site is important, but so are visitors. We submit your site to the top search engines and periodically resubmit it so that your search engine information stays current and your web site gets visitors.

All of this is less expensive than it sounds. We have reasonable pricing plans that get your web site built, hosted, optimized for search engines, submitted to search engines, and maintained for just a few dollars a day over the course of a year.

Still not sure if you should have a web site? Take a look at our top ten reasons to be on the web and see if makes sense for you.

What We Do

Your web site may be the first view of your company that a potential customer has, so it ought to reflect your passions, vision and values, not those of the web site design company. That's why we tailor every web site we build to your needs, not ours. We work with you to design the site -- and you know what's happening every step of the way. There are no surprises.

Here are the steps we take when we build your web site:

  1. Listen and uncover what you want your web site to do for you

  2. If you don't already have one, we'll register a domain name for you

  3. Create a flowchart with some creative ideas

  4. Listen to how you feel about our suggestions

  5. Develop a draft copy of your web site based on your feedback

  6. Optimize your web content for search engines based on our discussions

  7. Test your web site in all the popular browsers to ensure consistency of look and operation

  8. Post your web site on the internet so you can see what it will look like

  9. Listen to how you feel about the web site we've developed

  10. Make necessary modifications based on your feedback

  11. Put your web site on-line and test it to be sure it does what it should do

  12. Submit your web site to the major search engines

  13. Maintain your web site and make changes when you need them

What Do You Want Your Web Site To Do For You?

Before you hire anyone to build a web site, you really need to decide what you want your web site to do. Answering these four questions will help you make that determination.

1. Who do you want to visit your web site?

    Assuming that everyone with a computer and access to the internet will be interested in your site is probably a mistake. It's far better to have fewer people visit and make their experience the best it can be, than to try to be everything to everyone. Knowing who you want to attract will drive the content of your site; if your product or service appeals to a specific niche market, make sure you meet their expectations for content.

2. What do you want them to find out about you, once they are there?

    Ever sat and waited for a web page to load, only to discover there was nothing of value on it? Make sure that every page tells the person viewing it something they need to know. Eye-catching graphics and photos should accentuate your page, not bog it down so heavily that it can't load reasonably fast. When you answer question #1 you'll have a good idea of the speed of access to the internet that your clientele will have. If most are dialing in from home during the evening, go easy on the fat files (photos and graphics) and make the pages load faster. Your audience will appreciate it and they'll read your page.

    By the way, I'd like you to know that Internet 6 is the best value on the web for web site design, hosting, and maintenance. (We follow our own advice.)

3. Now that you have them, what do you want them to do?

    What's the call to action? Being perfectly honest, my goal is to get you to call 1-888-432-4357 and find out about setting up a web site. But if this is an inconvenient time to call, you can just send an email and ask us to call you.

4. Do you want them to come back? Why should they?

    OK, that's really 2 questions. If your site is selling a product or service you probably want repeat visitors. So give them a reason to return. It might be a quote of the day, tip of the week, or monthly schedule of special deals. But whatever reason you choose, be sure to keep it updated - there's nothing worse than old links that don't work.

If you've answered these questions and are ready to move ahead with web site design and construction, feel free to call or email us and see how we can help you.

Top Ten Reasons to Be On the Web

  10.   To make basic information about your company available. Think of the best yellow pages ad you ever saw, then ask yourself, "what else did I want to know?" That's what a good web site will do for you. It will tell your customers and potential customers who you are and what you do, and it can show and tell them why they should do business with you. And it tells them all over the world.

   9.   To reach viewers looking for a specific good or service. That's why you're in the yellow pages, right? But print limits you by geography and time. The web is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Potential customers can always find you and determine if you have the products or services that meet their needs. And you can tell them what's on special today, tomorrow, and even next week. Better yet, you can show them!

   8.   To catch casual browsers who might not otherwise know you exist. If you want to serve more than your local market, you need a presence in every city and town where your customers might be. The world wide web does that for you.

   7.   To answer frequently asked questions. Got a question for one of your suppliers at 8:30pm on a Thursday night? The web is a quick way to find an answer. Your customers can find answers, too, if you have a frequently asked questions (FAQ) page on your web site. This will also cut down the time you and your employees spend on the phone answering the same questions, over and over and over and over......

   6.   To make changing information available as soon as it changes. New products, new uses for existing products, changing specifications or special deals can all be handled by your web site. What better way to get vital information to all your customers at once? This information will draw your customers back to your web site and help cement your relationship with them.

   5.   To create 24 hour a day, 7 day a week service. You aren't always in the office. But your office can be open every hour of every day if you allow your customers to place orders, ask questions, or browse your catalog on-line. The web doesn't need to be tied in to your systems for these things to happen - you just need a well-designed web site.

   4.   To get feedback from customers. You need to know what your customers are thinking. Adding a feedback page to your site allows your customers the chance to say what they think. Amazon.com lets readers rate the books and offer advice to potential buyers. You can see if a book is likely to meet your needs by reading what other buyers had to say.

   3.   Your customers are already on the web. They're out there looking for deals and checking out your competitors. If they can't compare your current prices with the competitions', you lost.

   2   Your competitors are already on the web. Maybe not the folks down the street, but the ones who think the whole world is their market and can ship products just as easily as you can. They're there, and your customers are looking at their products and prices, and they might just be ordering on-line.

   And the Number 1 Reason to be on the Web:

   To sell more stuff. That's the reason you're in business to begin with, right? You want to sell goods and services to people who have a use for them. The web won't replace your current way of doing business, but it will offer you the opportunity to expand your market and get your business known outside your current geography. Call or e-mail us and we'll help get you started.
