Tropical Site Design
Your "On Call" Website
Just by visiting Tropical Site Design today you have taken the first step in bringing your business to the forefront of our community here in Tampa Bay! "Our own Tropical Oasis!"
So I am sure you have lots of questions and concerns. Well we are here to answer your questions and alleviate your concerns. Let's list a few here.
- 1. How much is this going to cost?
There is no simple answer to that question. Still we will give you a price, A Guaranteed Price before we start working on your project.
- 2. I see companies advertising online all the time, "Websites for $200." or some such thing. Why should I pay you more than those guys?
Well that one is fairly simple. Remember the old adage "You Get What You Pay For" Well that is so..soo true in the world of web design. The online only guys always want money up front. Then you get what they want to give you. If you are not happy.. Well that is an extra charge.. We will not ask you for one penny until we produce a working prototype of your site, and all design matters are finalized. Then you will only pay for the extras that you want included in your site. Final payment is never due until your site is finished, and you are fully satisfied that it is what you ordered, and more importantly the site is what you want, and what you need.
- 3. I do not know anything about websites. Who is going to take care of this once I pay for it?
Simply put...We will! For the small monthly maintenance fee we handle all security updates, up to 2 hrs a month of content updates, (Depending on plan and your needs). There is a reason our motto is "Your On Call" Design company. We are real people, who live and work right here in Tampa Bay. We give you our cell phone numbers as well as our office phone number. And we will take your call 24-7 to fix any problem you may have. (try that with the online guys!)
- 4. Well what if one of my kids takes over and they want to run the website themselves?
Again "No Problem" Once the website is paid for, if you want to host it somewhere else and have someone else handle the maintenance, we will happily transfer the site to wherever and to whom ever you say. "No Questions Asked!"
- 5. I do not want to look like all my competitors. What makes your designs unique?
Now that is a great question! What makes us unique is that we have been small business owners ourselves for over 30 years. Our founder has owned, successfully run and sold for a profit, Florist Shops, HVAC Contracting Companies, and A Roofing Company among other businesses. Bud is also a published fiction novelist and advertising executive. Let's just say that we know what works and what does not in putting a small business's Best Foot Forward!
- 6. Will I get to choose from different options, or is this a one site fits all type of thing?
Believe it or not, that is what most so called "Website Design Companies" offer. Not here at Tropical Site Design. We will give you option after option until you "Fall In Love" With your website...Only then do we feel that our job is done!
- 7. I keep hearing about SEO, and Code among other things. It just seems so Complicated! That has been the main reason I have never bothered to get a website. After all my business has been doing okay without one up to this point.
Please do not feel bad, you know we hear this all the time. SEO is the standard abbreviation for Search Engine Optimization. This is a vitally important part of our services. Let me ask you this; How often do you use your phone or your computer to find a service or company? How about for directions? If you are anything like me the first thing I do when considering doing business with someone is check them out online. If I can not find a website then I am highly unlikely to patronize the establishment. Well we concentrate on your SEO. With our goal being to get your site to show up on the first page of the search results on Google, Bing, and Yahoo. (How often do you go to the second page of search results?) We will tie your site to your Facebook page, Twitter account, and other social media sites. (If you do not have them we will also build them for you.) Next we will make sure you are tied into YELP the rating service that has taken the country by storm. Our only measure of success is "Your Success!""
- 7. This sounds great! What's the next step?
I am really glad you asked! Together we will take your business to the next level and beyond! Please look around the rest of this site. There are many more of your questions that will be answered, as well as links to sites we have built and are currently maintaining.
