Affordable Airdrie Web (www.affordableairdrieweb.com) offers a great option for businesses or organizations with small budgets but still needing an attractive web presence.
What most people don't realize when they see ads for free or cheap web design is that those programs are just template layouts and you have to do all the work - find most of the images, crop, size and optimize your images, write all your text exactly as you need it to show up, etc! In addition, they contain pretty much none of the parameters required by Google and other search engines to help you be found through internet searches.
We have been offering a low cost web design alternative for over 20 years - a professional looking informational "online brochure" where your clients can read about your business and find contact information.
Although these starter websites are too small to be able to incorporate " all the right stuff " to be found through internet searches like we do with our full-size custom sites, we still add as much as we can, as well as including your site in our portfolio of clients, which really helps in internet ranking.
Starter Sites include 4 pages of content. The cost of a starter site is a one-time cost only. Should you need updates at a later date, we only charge you for the time it takes to do that update to the website that we created for you.
This price is based on receiving the following supplied from our clients in an electronic format (on a flash drive, in an email, through Dropbox or Google Drive):
Please note: we may need to edit the content and images as given by the client in order to ensure a good fit with the layout.
Additional costs for all websites, from starter to custom, are domain name registration ($25 a year - may vary slightly for other extensions) and yearly hosting (equates $10 a month). These are the only recurring costs once your initial design has been paid for.
