Business Websites

We have been designing and building websites for quite a while, and our CMS (content management system) of choice is WordPress. At our fingertips is a vast library of plugins that can turn any website into a shopping cart platform, a directory, or almost anything else you can think of. This is why we build website (almost) exclusively using WordPress.

Looks really do matter.
Your business website has less than a second to appear credible, professional, and stand out from your competition.

That’s where we come in.

Studies show that your website visitors will will form an opinion about your business website in less than a a second. The way it looks, functions, and speed it loads is absolutely crucial in this day and age. It’s extremely important that your website is not only professionally designed, but is also responsive, and optimized for mobile users.

of your customers that will leave your website if the design is unattractive, outdated, or difficult to navigate around

of your customers will judge your business credibility based solely on the design of your website

of your customers that will head to your competitor after a poor experience on your website

of your customers won’t recommend your business if your website is poorly designed for mobile

Business Website FAQ’s

Closed
I’m on a strict budget. Do you offer any low cost options?
A business website doesn’t have to come with a big investment. We have been doing this for over 28 years and understand that not all small businesses have the budget for a website to showcase all of the bells and whistles.

Think of your business website like having a car. You have to be able to get from Point A to Point B, whether it’s in style or not. So, it’s better to have something just to get you where you need to go… it just doesn’t need to be a Ferrari. The same goes for your website. Your customers are looking for you online and if you aren’t there, they will head to your competition instead.

We offer a Basic 3-page Website for only $349 with seems to work well for a lot of businesses. It won’t be loaded with fancy options, but it will get your business online and will look good, too!

How much does a website cost?

There is no easy answer to this question. A website is quoted based on the needs of each individual business and each business is unique. We design and develop our websites specifically for your small business. We’ll ask a lot of questions, quantify your answers, and give you a fair and reasonable quote. 

All of our websites start as a Basic, 3-page Business Website (Home page, About page, and Contact page) that starts at a modest investment of only $349.

We find this type of business website is usually suitable for most solopreneurs, startups, and redesigns of older websites. If you need to add features, head on over to our Website Cost Estimator (not a firm quote) to see how much your website would run.

Do I have to be local to Southern California work with you?

Not at all! The beauty of the internet is that we are able to service clients from all over the United States. 

Will my new business website be mobile-friendly?

Yes! We spend time making sure your new website is responsive and mobile-friendly so it looks great on a variety of devices. 

How long will it take to build my new website?
The time it takes to build your new business website varies tremendously depending on the complexity, size, goals, functionality, and design of your website. But that’s only half of the equation… your responsiveness to our requests and the quality of your participation play a huge factor as well. We have a saying here… we work at the speed on client.

While basic business websites can take as little as a week to complete, larger more complex websites can take 2-4 months or more.

Who is responsible for the content of my site?
You are the expert on your business, so it’s usually best if all website content comes from you.

However, if you need help, we have copywriters who can help clean up or write original content for you at an additional cost.

Will I be able to update my website myself when it’s finished?

Absolutely… if you want to. However, since we specialize in fully-managed hosting, most of our Monthly Hosting & Maintenance Plans include website updates, so it’s must faster to have us do updates for you. However, we would be more than happy to provide training on how to manage your website’s content upon request.

I already have a website host... but can you host it for me instead?

If you already have a WordPress website, absolutely. We would happily move your current business website over to our servers and set you up with one of our many available hosting plans.

If you aren’t currently using WordPress, we are unable to host you on our servers unless you were interested in having us redevelop your site using WordPress.

After almost a year of enduring non-stop excuses, unfulfilled promises and an unworkable website from a large media company, I finally pulled the plug. Fortunately, I discovered Erik Allen Design and Marketing. We met and went over what I was looking for in a website. What a difference! Erik had a great website up and working in no time at all and at a very favorable price. Erik is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with. I am very happy with the results and would definitely recommend Erik to any small or medium business who wants a better presence on the web.

My company is an auto restoration business and new to the area. I originally ordered business cards and hand out flyers from Erik Allen's company and I was very pleased with the products. Our location needed some more attention, so I had them help with my logo and website development and we gained many more customers.

Erik did an awesome job creating my website. He took the time to sit down with me and understand both my product, and the type of customers I’m looking to reach. He was very patient with my lack of computer skills, and knowledge in getting him material. I have only heard good things about what people see online.

Woohoo! As good as it gets! In the past, doing anything website related has been challenging for me. When asked what I wanted within my website, I knew some basic things that I wanted to include, but not being tech savvy or well versed in current offerings, I was not sure of the options available—and what would be a good match for me and my business. Erik has been such a breeze to work with. He provided me with menu-like options, provided detailed descriptions, and made suggestions that are going to save me a lot of money in the long run. I have found Erik to be honest regarding what to start with now (and what to grow into at a later date), knowledgeable about new programs and plug-ins, a talented graphic designer, and someone who provides rapid work turn-around. Erik has experience and training in graphic design and website design. SCORE!!! (for me, anyway) He is very responsive whenever I have a question or need info about something. Erik gave me a “menu” to choose what type of services I wanted. When I was not sure about an item, I asked him to explain it to me. He is clear and patient with me when he explains tech. (That is HUGE for me cuz I am extremely tech-challenged—to say the very least.) Additionally, Erik is always extremely honest. Knowing that I was working with a set budget, he suggested what to set-up now and what I can “grow-into later” as my business and offerings grows. I feel lucky to have found Erik.
