What sort of website can I get for FREE?
A real website made in America by real people. A marketing expert will supervise the process, the site will be written by a great writer, custom designed by a professional and creative graphic artist, and built by an experienced web coder. You will also receive up to five (5) email accounts branded to your business and a domain name that you 100% own. Again, you will receive a real website, with up to six (6) pages, on your own domain name. It’s your website, you have full control, and you have it for FREE.
Is the site easy to update on my own?
Yes! Your new website will be a simple-to-operate finished product that will allow you to easily modify the site on your own. You can edit or delete pages at any time. You can add photos to your galleries and edit text on all of your pages. You can change your hours, add a phone number or list a new address with ease.
How long does it take to create my new website?
After your production meeting, we’ll design and launch your new site in about four to six weeks. This is a simple process that will require very little of your time after the initial twenty minute phone call.
Is it a problem if I already have my domain name?
No. This is both not a problem and very common. When the site is ready to go live, we’ll launch it on your current domain name so that you don’t have to change it.
How long are your contracts?
On The House Websites plans are paid monthly, but we require that you stay with us for at least 3 years.
Do I need another web host?
No. All On The House Websites plans include our fully-managed cloud hosting, ensuring your website remains available at all times.
How do I cancel service?
Cancelling with On The House Websites depends on where you are in your contract. Contact us to determine what your situation is.
Can I switch plans or upgrade?
Yes, at any time, just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll get back to you to discuss options.
Can you help me with Search Engine Optimization?
Yes, we specialize in getting people to visit your site. This is done through a variety of SEO methods but we don’t stop there. Of course we implement the necessary keywords and site descriptions. We can take things to the next level as there are multiple ways to attract people to your website.
Can you explain how hosting, security, and upgrading a website works?
Sure. A website is like a car which has to be parked in a parking lot. This is what hosting is. For years people just bought a car (a website) and parked it. However as the skills of Internet hackers advanced it became clear that sites needed to be secured at a higher level. This is done to protect your website and you and your customers. Finally the web has advanced to a point where, like your computer, smart TV and your phone, upgrades are available on a regular basis.
These upgrades are to your website what changing the oil and tires is to your car. And in the same way these upgrades will cause the site to last longer, operate more efficiently, and perform better on the information superhighway. We will update and backup your website once a month.
As marketers we know how important it is for your site to function properly…we consider hosting, security, and upgrading the site to be as important as building the site itself.
How are you able to do this for free?
This is a good question as most folks we speak to have been quoted prices for a new site in the thousands of dollars. Our approach is unlike other web companies. We consider the building of the site to be the engagement…not the wedding. We strive to build you a site you love so much that you will ask us to do more work for you. Most people we work with want marketing help and beyond.
What else can you do to help my business succeed?
A lot. We are considered experts in email marketing, Google and Facebook ad campaigns, Search Engine Optimization, print design, logo design, social media, and blogging. All of our marketing plans and packages allow you to walk away anytime you wish. Unlike most Internet marketing companies, we put our money where our mouths are. If you don’t like the results, just say “Stop”. It’s that easy.
What is the On The House Websites difference?
For starters, the website is FREE. Also, we are going to build you a site that begins with the idea that you are trying to make more money. This is accomplished by simply placing the site into the hands of a sales/marketing person as opposed to a creative or techie person. We have great artists and awesome programmers, but they do not quarterback the projects. People who know how to make you money do.
Our sites build value, credibility, and showcase your unique value proposition. Finally our marketing copywriters drive people to your point of purchase. Most web coders and graphic artists don’t even know the meaning of the phrases above, let alone have a clue how to execute them.
We have found that web coders and designers know how to bake pies but not how to sell pies. Your business doesn’t succeed when you turn on the oven; your business succeeds when a customer buys the pie!
Why should I choose On The House Websites to build my website?
Well, for all the reasons we listed above. Beyond this, we will make this process easy. We know how busy you are. We understand that you want a new site but don’t want to get drawn into a long process. With that said we will make this fast as well. Building your site should be fun. We will create a new site for you in two weeks from the day we receive your materials. We will do all the work for you.
Our approach is both affordable and easy.
