Let's Talk About Your Website!

Do you need your first website?

Does your current website need a makeover?

Is your website delivering for your business?

Is your website lost in cyberspace?

Is your hosting service giving you a value-added advantage... or is it just cheap? (or even worse, maybe it's not giving you any advantage and not inexpensive either!)

Your website is your "Brochure to the World"! It should become the very hub of your marketing plan. All advertising materials (business cards, brochures, print ads, flyers) should lead back to your website. Same with social media. The demise of websites has been highly overhyped (often by social media sellers). Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, as well as email campaigns, and even old-school marketing like mailers, all have a place... but they, too, should drive traffic to your website, where everything is conveniently and efficiently laid out for your visitors to easily find.

Don't you think that "Brochure to the World" should be designed and maintained by true website professionals?

But all website design and hosting services aren't created equal. Since 1995, GigHarbor.Com has been the preferred website professionals for hundreds of Gig Harbor, Tacoma and Pierce County businesses! While other designers have come and gone, we've built more web sites than just about anyone in the area. Our experience and strategic advantages are the primary reasons GigHarbor.Com is chosen so often by area businesses to create, maintain and host their websites. Not only can we build you a great looking site that truly reflects the character and style of your business, we can support your site like no one else.

Be very careful choosing a website designer!
Website designers are a dime-a-dozen these days... and they come and go like the fog. Anyone can download a program and start calling themselves a website designer. We even joke that we are in competition with 12-year-olds. They may mean well, but these eager beginners don't know what they don't know. Soon they learn that building websites that actually work for the client (rather than just looking good) is more tricky than they thought, making a living building websites isn't easy, and there are a lot of responsibilities toward the client that they didn't expect. As a result, quite often they get bored or annoyed with the whole thing and drift off to new horizons... which sometimes means the demise of the website they built. Be very wary of the kid down the street, or the new website designer in town offers a cheap deal on your new website. You may save a few dollars, and pay a painful price in just a little while. ALWAYS ask to see a portfolio of the websites they have designed themselves. If they only have a few (or if you are the first), politely decline their offer. Your business should not be anyone's guinea pig or learning curve. Also, ask how long they have been in business building websites. If less than 3-5 years, there's a significant risk that they will disappear on you in short order. We routinely get calls from clients who need their websites "rescued" from neglect or abandonment by the prior website designer.

Then there is the opposite extreme. The "Big City" website designers don't even want to talk to you if you don't have a budget of at least five grand or so. They can certainly build you a Taj Mahal of websites. If you need that, great. But small businesses usually do not. Don't pay for way more than you need. We can get you up and running with a great website for a fraction of that amount. And even the Big City guys can't offer you some of the advantages of GigHarbor.Com.

Lastly, there are the "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY) website operators. There are jillions of these systems out there on the web. Some of them prominently advertise on television and the internet. Their "come-on" is how EASY and CHEAP it is. Why pay someone for something you can do yourself, right? Turns out these are usually not so easy, and certainly not cheap when you factor in how much time, effort and energy you will put into building a DIY site, and then, most likely, end up with a website that doesn't actually bring you any business. That can be the most expensive website of all! Don't take our word for it. Go ahead, try one of them out. Watch your valuable time tick away as your frustration increases with the "easy" DIY system.

The smart, cost-effective, and efficient way to go is to find a qualified website designer who you can depend on - now and in the future - to build and maintain a website that will actually work for you.

We are glad you found us. Our clientele is usually small businesses, with a limited budget. No problem. Your working website is on the way!
