Why does your business need a website?

We've included the top 5 reasons we believe it's important for your business to establish an online presence.

  1. Make your information available

    What do you do? How can someone contact you? What are your hours? Where are you located? What methods of payment do you take? You can tell customers about today's special, today's press releases, and even next week's sale information.


  2. To better serve your customers & clients

    Making information available is an important way to serve your customers and clients. Using web technology, you can help them more efficiently. With website information, anybody, anywhere, who can access the Internet is a potential visitor to your website and a potential customer.


  3. Sell your product or service

    You could consider an e-commerce facility. Before people decide to become customers, they need to know about you, what you do, and what you can do for them. Then you can turn them into customers.


  4. Establish a presence and network with others

    Approximately 310 million people worldwide have access to the Internet. That's 310 million people that you can't afford to ignore. Your site is networking with millions of businesses and customers.


  5. To open international markets and to create a 24-hour service

    Your website can bring international opportunities your way. Business is worldwide but your office hours are not. Websites serve the customer, client, and partner, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

 
What is website design?

Website design is a process, We will guide you through that process. No two businesses are alike and no two web sites should be. Maxwaie uses the latest web design technology to design our Web Sites. Every site is custom designed and priced for each client. Not only will we make your site the way you want it, but we will make sure it loads fast on many different types of internet connections and computers. It is important to not only have a site that visitors want to come back to, but also one that they can see it quickly. If a site takes to long to load you may loose visitors and they may go to another site.

 
What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a way to identify and locate computers connected to the Internet. Each organization has its own domain name. A domain name must contain two or more components separated by dots.
For example:
   yahoo.com
   abc.net
   singnet.com.sg

 
What is web hosting?

A website gives you the opportunity to be seen on the internet (world wide web). It is a physical space on a computer (web server) that is connected to the internet. A Web Hosting Plan is where you store your web pages that make up the content of information about your business or organization. Through the domain name, such as www.yourcompany.com, anyone can access your site and learn about you and your business. Visitors will have access to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 
Why should I register a domain name now?

Each domain name is like your home address, it is unique and only those living with you in the same home shares the address. Anyone may register any number of domain names they wish and more than 65,000 .com, .net and .org domain names are registered every day!

Website promotion

Even if you already have a beautiful, easy to navigate and professional web site you may find that you can't find your company when searching any of the major search engines - and if you can't find yourself in the listing new prospective customers won't find you either. Search engine placement is an excellent, low cost way to market your on-line business. You can attract new business from across the country and from around the world when your site is found consistently by others using search engines to locate information and services.

Unfortunately, web site owners often don't take full advantage of this important marketing opportunity. They either don't bother submitting their site at all or use one of the many "free" site submission services available. Even though each search engine has their own requirements for the way in which information should be submitted the "free" services typically submit your site in a single generic submission. Site owners are often bewildered when, several weeks or even months after their site has been submitted, they still can't find their company through any of the major search engines.

We strongly recommend that you take a very thoughtful approach to this effort, with careful attention to each search engines unique specifications. If you submit your site incorrectly the first time you may not get another chance. For instance, Yahoo, the most often used search engine on the Internet, is very unforgiving to improperly submitted sites. They do not allow multiple page submissions and will ignore your attempts to resubmit your site if your first submission was ineffective.

To further complicate this challenge, each week tens of thousands of new sites are submitted to the major search engines causing existing sites in the directory to move up and down in their ranking. Sites submitted using all the legitimate techniques available will appear and then move up in the search engine listings while those submitted improperly may never appear.

Because it is so important of your site placement we also offer extended service plans to help you submit this important marketing opportunity.
