If you own any type of business, a restaurant, store, salon, or if yours is a home based business having a website is a must. Right in your city there are likely hundreds, or thousands of businesses offering similar products and services to yours.
People are looking for what you have to offer, and if they do a search online and don’t find you, they’re choosing your competitor instead.
Taking your business online with a professional website will help you gain visibility, exposure, traffic, engagement, and customers or clients.
Establish your business and brand online with WordPress
Hello, and welcome! I’m Stephanie Sterling, a small business owner and entrepreneur for the past 20 years. I help individuals and small business owners of all types take their business, or interests online, get results, and do it affordably.
The websites I create are SEO ready, or optimized for the products, industry, and demographic of your ideal customer.
I also help you easily have control over your website, without having your hands tied when you want to add content, or edit what you have using the userfriendly WordPress platform.
Why WordPress Websites?
WordPress websites are the standard today, and adding new content is like typing an email. When you want to update to reflect a change, it can be done in minutes, not hours! Your social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc can be integrated and help you gain more followers, multiplying your presence and your results.
WordPress is SEO friendly too. With WordPress you can start getting found in days, and when you publish new blog posts they can sometimes start getting traffic, and bringing results in mere minutes!
LOOK at the traffic on one of my websites right now. Those are real people LIVE right now on my website, and I don’t spend a dime to get that traffic, it’s free from mostly Google search! They are looking for what I offer, and getting the information they need to make a decision to purchase my products, or do business with me.
That’s leverage, it’s creating the content one time, and having it bring new, fresh results, hour after hour, day after day, year after year!
WordPress Website Installation & Set Up
Are you ready to take your business, name, and brand online?
When I wanted to go online with my business, and didn’t yet have the skills to do it, I struggled for months. I wanted to hire someone to create what I needed to get started, but it was going to cost between $800-$3,000 for just a simple website to get me up and running. I didn’t have that kind of money, I was just getting started in my business!
For less than $200, I can help you get your WordPress website and business online, including basic pages, navigation menus, SEO and other top must-have plugins, and integrate your social media platforms.
Here are just a few Samples of WordPress websites I’ve created.
What I do provide are affordable websites, that are functional, that you can easily edit, update, and add new content, are SEO optimized, and SEO user-friendly, and effectively get results that translate to traffic, sales and profits.
What I don’t provide are custom designs, that run from $4,000-$50,000, require a lot of coding, and special maintenance and updates that keep you tethered to an expensive web-designer for life. Most custom designers create beautiful websites, but they are often not SEO friendly, and you may end up needing to consult with an expensive SEO expert to learn the basics, you could learn and apply for free.

Are You Capturing Your Website Visitors and Keeping In Touch?
If you have a website, aside from making sales, and gaining new clients, customers, or business partners your primary objective is to collect their name, and email address to keep in touch. It takes on average several follow-ups to complete a sale, or gain a new client the majority of the time.
Think about it… When you set out to purchase a product, or most services don’t you do research or compare different vendors, or businesses? What happens when someone is doing research is they often forget how they found some of the websites they’ve visited, or they get distracted, or interrupted and leave.
You do need to capture the email address of your visitors and stay on the top of their mind! You can do this through a newsletter, or offering helpful information they can receive by completing a form to subscribe. aWeber also gives you the tutorials and templates to easily create attractive web-forms.
If you have a business, your inventory is not your product…
your inventory is your list.
Without a list you are leaving money… a lot of money
on the table every week, month, and every year!
You don’t want to send emails individually to your contacts because you could get in trouble for spam, or you will become overwhelmed because you will have thousands of contacts over time.
Having a professional email list service provider that is compliant with laws regarding email marketing, automatically does follow up while you sleep, play, work, etc gives you leverage and time freedom. It also ensures you don’t lose important potential customers, and provides a way to keep in touch with your current customers.
You’ll also have the ability to create special promotions, introduce new products, sales, etc and then send out your offer to your entire list with a click of a button.
This is how I communicate with thousands of people who requested information from me. When we have a special, or I want to promote an affiliate product like a book, a course, or membership I can go to my list and generate hundreds or thousands of dollars in sales in minutes, or hours after I send out my email.
This is not something you do all the time, but selectively, thoughtfully, and periodically as you develop trust with your readers.
The service I have used for over 15 years is called aWeber. They are the most reputable, affordable, and easy to use email list provider I have found.
Their tutorials can help anyone create their first email list, web-form, and welcome message within minutes. They also have an extremely helpful customer service and support department, which is another reason why I have stayed with them for so many years!
