Do I Really Need a Website?
The simple answer is…yes.
98% of businesses today are discovered either through a direct referral or online. The real kicker for this, though is, that when the average person hears about a new business, the first thing they do is look online. So, yes, if you have a business and you’re seeking growth in increasingly dynamic markets, you need a website.
What Are the Costs Involved in a Website?
There are four main costs associated with a website.
- Domain Name
- Web Hosting
- Website Design
- Updates After the Site is Live
What Else Can a Website Do Besides Just Advertise?
You should think of your website as more than just an online business card. Your website is your online portal for your business. Websites can be leveraged as online stores, provide portals and information for employees, list job applications, establish authority from curated content, and much, much more.
Can’t I just Build My Own Website?
You absolutely can. In the same way, you can install parts on your car or remodel your kitchen. It’s entirely possible and a number of services exist to help you do just that. But, just like these other examples, website design has a lot of fine point techniques and skills that can take years to fully master. Our team are experts at leveraging our over 25 years of experience to help you not just build a website, but build the website of your dreams for the business of your dreams.
How Long Does it Take to Design a New Website?
A new website will typically take somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks. This includes all aspects of the project from design to launch. Having content and ideas ready to go, of course, will reduce the timeline a bit. Additionally, we can rush a project for a fee.
Can I Make Changes After the Site Has Been Designed?
Absolutely! We have two easy options to help you make those updates that keep your site fresh and dynamic. Either we can teach you how to make changes yourself or, as most of our clients do, you can e-mail us the requested updates and we should have them answered within 7 days.
I Already Have a Site And Just Need a Few Changes…
Usually we can help with situations just like this. As a full web development and branding agency, we help people with all different types of digital marketing needs. As long as you have the original design files, we can help make any changes you need and turn it back over to you.
Can You Help Me With E-Commerce?
Yes, we absolutely can. From setting up your products online to helping pair you with a credit card processor, our team can help make e-commerce a vibrant part of your digital marketing strategy, streamlining online sales for maximum efficiency.
My Website is Losing Ranking On Google! Can You Help?
We absolutely can. There are a wide variety of reasons this could be happening, and a number of different ways we can fix them. Our team of experienced and skilled marketing professionals will be happy to perform a full audit of your current site and help you make the improvements needed to keep you high in the rankings.
Do I Really Need a Professionally Designed Logo?
Yes. Your logo is one of the first components of your brand that most people will encounter, and there is an art and science involved in designing one that will resonate with your customers. A common mistake for new business owners is the rushed design of a sub-par logo that rubs potential customers the wrong way. Our team can help you with all of this.
Can You Do Event Marketing?
Yes! Our team is one of the finest event marketers available, combining experts in multiple fields to build solid promotion strategies for you. Whether we are on-scene, actively executing everything down to the minute, or teaching your team to work with well-built resources crafted by marketing professionals, we’re the team you need.
I am a Real Estate Agent, Independent Salesman, or Sub-Contractor
A common belief for people selling under a larger company is that the company site and their agent page on it will be all that they need. The truth is that these pages are designed to check boxes and often lack dynamic design or authority strategies built into them. You need to build a distinctive brand, one that creates trust and value in your name. With multiple team members having extensive sales experience, we are able to help you do just that.
Why Should I Use Stingray Branding for My Hosting?
Stingray Branding’s difference in this arena is simple. Personal, effective, and direct communication with your hosting provider. When you have questions, we’re the ones you speak to directly, not an automated message or a random customer service rep at a boiler room desk.
Do You Offer Any Discounts?
Yes, we do. Our discounts are as follows:
- $50 off any service for all North Charleston Chamber of Commerce, Summerville Chamber, Charleston Business Group, Mt. Pleasant Chamber of Commerce, or Gator Collective Members.
- 10% off for all Active, Reserve, or Retired Military Service Members or University of Florida Alumni.
- Additionally, we offer referral fees to other marketing companies or professionals that refer clients to us.
