You run a business. It might be a small business running for awhile, or a start up. Your “to do” list says “Get website”. You think: lots of money, fast talking salesman, technobabble, anguish. You go and do something else instead.
I’ve spoke to a lot of people who have been there. They are very good at what they do, but don’t know much about the internet beyond Facebook. They think that talking to a website design agency is going to cost them a lot of time, money and confusion.
It doesn’t have to be like that.
For a start, Vapour Trail is a small business. We don’t employ salespeople, you talk to the person who will create your website. We are a small business, so we know that value for money is important. We want to build a relationship with our customers so we don’t start off by confusing you. We want to create you an affordable website and see it grow with your business.
We don’t try to sell you what you don’t need.
This is a key point, so let me explain further. If you are a big brand, you want all your marketing (including your website) to be unique to you. You will be spending a lot of money to create a totally unique brand identity. And it will be lot of money because top quality design work is expensive.
An affordable website
In most cases, this is not an appropriate approach for a small business. You want to be distinctive and get your message across, but not at any price. We take readily available, often free to use components and combine them with original imagery and text to create a distinctive, but affordable website. We are big fans of the WordPress Content Management System. This is an Open Source product which means it’s free to use. There are hundreds of free themes to control the appearance of the website. These can be configured to create a distinctive look for your business website.
