BELLETTIcreative builds customized WordPress sites that are easily managed, fully responsive and optimized for search engines. If you don’t know what any of that means, that’s OK too! If you need a new website or want to replace your old one, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been building websites for over 20 years, and I’m happy to walk you through the process so you know what to expect.
Unless you need premium functionality like an online shop or a membership-based site, most of my small business customers spend around 1000-2000 for a beautifully-crafted, personalized website with all the modern features like hero sliders and animated effects. Annual hosting rates are highly competitive and often provide faster speeds & better service for much less than you’re used to paying.
Because every website is different, I’ll provide a written estimate after we determine your specific needs.
*BELLETTIcreative requires new builds to use our preferred hosting provider to ensure compatibility, speed, security and performance. You may choose to move your site to another provider at any time, but the first year’s hosting fee is non-refundable.
I’ll guide you in making design & content decisions such as choosing colors, fonts, layouts, photos, and page structure. I can also assist with domain name selection and registration if you do not have an existing site.
2. Content Collection
Content & graphic files will be collected from you before work begins. I can often use existing logos and copy if provided in the required formats. Or, I can provide professional graphic design and photography services for an additional fee.
3. Demo Site
A working demo site will be presented for you to visit and experience your new site before launch. All BELLETTIcreative websites include up to 5 basic pages. For example: Home, Contact, About, Gallery, etc.
4. Site Launch
The remaining content, plugins, forms and any add-ons are completed. If I’m replacing your existing website, I’ll work with your current host to make the switch when you’re ready.
Add-ons & Upgrades
Every website I build is created using SEO best practices. The SEO+ Add-on takes it a step further with a thorough review of your website content, keywords, sitemap, image optimization and more. I’ll make changes to your site to improve Search Engine Optimization, and I’ll submit your sitemap to Google for referencing. SEO is an ongoing process, and I’ll make recommendations on how you can continue making improvements to your site to get better rankings.
Google My Business
It’s essential for small businesses to have a complete Google My Business listing. Visitors searching the web for local businesses will often find listings on the Google Map display, and a great Google My Business page is more important than ever. I’ll create a profile that complements your new website and link them together to drive even more visitors to you.
Google Analytics is a fantastic tool for tracking your website’s performance and reach. I’ll create an account for you and insert your specific tracking code into your website. Google Analytics provides a wide range of reporting options so you can see who’s visiting your site, which pages they are viewing, how they are finding you and how well your Google ads are performing. It’s an essential tool for making sure your site is useful for your visitors and that your marketing efforts are paying off!
Google Ads Management
When you perform a search using Google, you’ll often see “Sponsored Ads” at the top and bottom of the page. I’ll set up a Google Ads account for you and help you determine the best strategy for marketing your business to your customers. I’ll create a series of ads to run within the budget you set. Whether you are a new business or well-established, Google Ads can help you get highly targeted placement directly in front of the customers you are trying to attract.
Want to make money on your website by selling products or services directly to your consumers? I will create a customized WooCommerce online store for you. I’ll set up your shopping cart, create product or service listings and show you how to track orders directly within your site.
Changes, Additions & Other Editing
You’ll have complete access and control over your new website once it’s complete, but you may prefer to have BELLETTIcreative handle your editing & updating for you. If so, changes are simply billed at an hourly rate. If you have extensive changes, I’ll be happy to give you a quote so you’ll know exactly how much you’ll be billed.
