Those of you familiar with the metro Detroit area here in Michigan, may have recently come across this article on buzzfeed.com showing 30 photos of the revitalitzation taking place here in Detroit. If you know anything about Detroit, it is probably negative. Those of us who grew up in the surrounding areas, grew up with a fear of the city. But things are changing, slowly but surely, and this revitalization has attracted a lot of young professionals to the area like Josh and myself.
As I write this, I am sitting at Avalon International Breads in midtown Detroit, one of many businesses that didn’t exist in the area just a few years ago. The housing market in midtown is now very competitive and the community is bustling. While not all parts of the city are seeing this kind of growth, this example of revitalization shows us how changing and updating can bring new life and in the case of a business owner, new business.
If you’ve read any of our blogs or looked at our website, you know that we have a passion to help small businesses and start-up companies have a great presence on the web. We do this in 3 ways:
1. There is no down payment, only low monthly payments.
Don’t have thousands of dollars for a website? No problem. Our sites start at $129.95 a month and they include hosting and monthly updates to your site. Because we have a developer and designer on our team, our websites look good and work properly.
2. We make our websites mobile friendly.
More people have mobile phones than toothbrushes. People check their cell phones over 110 times per day. Over 40% of online searches are done on smart phones. See my point? If you want your potential customers to find your business, you have to have a web presence and people need to be able to view your site no matter what type of device they are using.
3. We will redesign/refresh your website every 3 years for no extra cost.
Web technology is constantly changing. If you had a website designed as early as a few years ago, it probably isn’t responsive and doesn’t show up well on mobile devices. Who could have anticipated how mobile technology would revolutionize our lives? Since we unfortunately can’t tell the future, we can’t build you a website with technologies from the future. Although, that would be awesome, right? Bottom line, we don’t want you to get stuck with an outdated website. What we can do is stay on top of the next trend and we can make sure that the web presence for your business keeps up with the next trend in web technologies.
Having an updated and revitalized web presence is more important than ever when it comes to growing a business. Creating a great, mobile-friendly web presence for new and growing businesses is our honest and sincere passion in life.
