Website building, maintenance & training for Block Island businesspeople

Block Island is unique in many ways, and doing business here has unique challenges & rewards.  As a businessperson on the island, you know that the intensity of the summer season is matched only by how short it is. While you are always happy to see Labor Day roll around (so that you might finally get some sleep), sometime in October you realize that a few of the things that you meant to do in the Spring or Summer simply didn't happen for lack of energy and time.

One of the items on that list is probably the website that you've been meaning to do, or the updating to your current website. 

If you don't already have a website but think that you can't really afford one, you should know that web hosting rates have come down considerably in the past few years, to prices under $150 per year - much less than the cost of a print ad.

If you don't think that you need a website because your business is very small and open only in the summer months, you may want to consider the fact that having a website with your hours and the times that you are open during the year can be as important as your phone number to attract additional business.  A website can also allow you to reach your customers when they aren't on the island, especially during the offseason.

If you own a larger business, and your website hasn't been updated for a while, it becomes harder for you to compete with other accommodations / dining places with newer, classier websites. 

When you put all of your effort into making your business the best that it can be, your website can and should reflect that effort.

Anyone from a slick Boston firm to your brother's best friend's cousin's high school kid can put up a website for you.  But to do it the right way - your way - you can have the services of a firm right here on Block Island.  I spend most of the year out here, and owned my own summer seasonal business on the island for over 10 years.  I know what it's like, and I'm here to help at any time.  To sit down with you, at your convenience, and be sure that your site reflects your individual business.

I can build your website inexpensively.  Pricing depends on many factors, but a single page starts as low as $175.  I can update your old website for a simple hourly fee - no contracts - you just pay for work actually done.  I can also maintain your site, whether you need a yearly update or a daily menu.  Maintenance for any type of website is simply payment for time used - no contracts, no monthly fees.  I can also train you or your staff to maintain your own website on your premises.
