    What is a website good for?
     Advertising
    You know how important advertising is to your business. But think about where you advertise and how costly it is.  Your website gets delivered 24 hours a day all around the world. The Internet is some of the most cost efficient advertising you can buy.  With a web site you can have as much information displayed to your customers.  It’s the only way to go nowadays, and with Blais Web Creations we can get you started.

    Customer Service
    How many times per day do you or a member of your staff answer the phone and give the exact same information, over-and-over?
    Look what a website can provide "friendly" customer service. Websites are visual. It gives customers choice, and power to move freely. The customer doesn’t have to wait on the phone to listen to a recording or hopefully a person to talk to. They feel as though they are in control when they are gathering information from your website. They decide what information they are going to bring up and when they want it. And they can go back to it and reread it any time they want.
    Whether you are a retail business with products to sell on-line or a service business, a website can not only improve your sales, but it can reduce your costs.

    Do I need a computer?
    No, but you should to give your customers the best service. But one of the biggest misconceptions we run into is clients who think that they need their own computer hooked up to the Internet 24 hours a day in order to have a website. You don't need a computer at all,. Blais Web Creations has its own computers for designing and hosting your site.

    What about E-mail?
     You don't need an E-mail account to have a website, but we highly recommend it. If you don't have an E-mail account or access to the Internet, you can get a free E-mail account from companies like Juno. But if you have a domain name hosted with Blais Web Creations and have access to the internet, you will have your own E-mail accounts that will be on your own Domain host. That will really take full advantage of your Internet presence. By having an E-mail account and responding to messages you can take full advantage of your website, to develop new customers and provide service to existing customers.

    What is a "Virtual Domain Name" and do I need one?
      Websites have addresses just like the street address or p.o. box for your business. It is how people find your site on the Internet. For example, the website your are on right now is "www.BlaisWebCreations.com". We pay a $20 per year fee to the administration service of the Internet known as BulkRegister to keep this name, just like a p.o. box fee.
     You should have your own unique domain name. But if you are not ready to build a website yet, but would like to reserve the name, we can register the name for you and park the name for you on our servers for only $25 per year. There is a $40 fee for registering the name the first time you register it and it is good for two years. You will receive a bill from us for $40 to reserve your unique name for the first 2 years, then you will receive an annual bill for $20 to keep your name registered.
     Whether or not you need your own unique name is up to you, but we highly suggest it. If you are new to the Internet and just want to test the waters, you can have a domain name as www.BlaisWebCreations.com/yourcompany/ . Later on when you see how important the Internet is to your business, you may want to get your own domain name. But think about this, would you buy from a company that didn’t have the resources to have their own Domain name?

    Who will see my site?
      In our experience, the answer to that question is everyone!  People from all walks of life use it. Even senior citizens surf the net. There are many options out there for Internet access and now available at incredible speeds through local cable services. The Internet is going to make giant strides in the next decade. Many people who may not have Internet access at home have it available through their computers at work.

    How will people find my site?
      There are many ways people will see your site. The Internet has its own white and yellow page directories called search engines. These include such popular search engines such as Yahoo, AltaVista, WebCrawler and others. Different search engines index websites in a different manner and there are different search indexes for different types of websites. There are also local and regional directories that only list sites within their area. Specialty items can be advertised with link pages, message boards and web rings, so that other people can view those categories of interest.
    The other important way people will find your site is when you tell them about it. You should treat your Internet address and E-mail address as though it were as important as your telephone number. Print it on everything from yellow page ads, envelopes, business cards, stationery, brochures, marketing materials, and all print ads. Get Your Website Address Out There for all to know and see.
