How I learned the right way to build a small business web site

by Lou Bradbard

 

Lou & Andi at Sunapee HarborHi! I'm Lou, the webmaster for Lake-Sunapee-Living.com. Here I am with my fiance Andi at Sunapee Harbor.

I want to tell you the story of how I started Lake-Sunapee-Living.com. I use a very powerful web site hosting system called SiteSell to build this web site and several others. If you have any interest in using the web to promote your business, or using the web to run a business, I urge you to take a look at the video at the bottom of this page. Even if you don't bother to read this article, PLEASE skip to the bottom of this page and click on the video. You will really be amazed at what this powerful web site system can do for your business.

Lake Sunapee Living.com was created by my company Wild Goose Web Design as an internet portal for all businesses, artists and craftspeople in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region. Our goal is to promote the region, provide information to visitors to the area, and provide the highest level of web site service to local businesses using the SiteSell method to build and promote our web sites.

Why do small businesses have so many problems with their web sites?

Before I discovered SiteSell I didn't know what I was doing. Imagine that a 20 year veteran of the high-tech industry could not build a web site! I knew the technology, but not how to use it to promote a small business. I tried to find a successful small business web site to use as a model for starting my own web site.

I talked with a lot of small business people and heard a long list of problems from a lot of very unhappy folks whose web site efforts had all gone wrong somehow.

“I can put up a billboard and get calls the next day.
I put up a web site and nothing happens.”
                              

There were problems at every step – unresponsive & overpriced webmasters, hosting providers’ relentless up-selling of more and more web site features and services, and no useful information available to the owner to help correct what was wrong with the site.

If they could eventually get their web site built, they ended up with no traffic & no sales, but a stack of bills & an e-mail inbox overflowing with spam. Even the smartest folks who ran very successful businesses were frustrated. Some had spent thousands of dollars with no visible return.

When I tried to build a small business web site I felt like I was stumbling around in the dark.

I learned that nearly everything I studied in my computer career was completely useless for building an effective small business web site. I know the technology inside and out but that didn’t help me at all. I needed to learn how to make the right decisions.

The possibility of starting my own web site business was looking pretty dim

Then I found a better way. I learned there are two kind of web sites - regular web sites and effective web sites.

In my former career as a software tester for IBM, I learned to identify missing pieces of a puzzle. When I stumbled on SiteSell I was skeptical of their guaranteed claims but I kept reading and eventually realized that this was what was missing from the small business web site puzzle – a complete system for researching, planning, building, and monetizing a web site for any type of small business.

They have thousands of successful sites to use as examples, an arsenal of essential tools, and a library of information including specialty articles for the most common types of businesses, and they even show how to write for the web!

The SiteSell web hosting service includes everything you will need to run an Site build it boxonline business for a single fixed price - less than a dollar a day! SiteSell's web site builder tool called Site Build It is very easy to use and will handle all of the technical stuff for you.

SiteSell is perfect for non-technical people and for those with computer skills. If you can use e-mail you can use SiteSell to build your passion into an online business.

The web site design business is currently like the home construction industry was 100 years ago, before the building code was created. There is just no set of rules to specify the right way to build a web site. SiteSell has created those rules and built them into a fail-proof system.

You can do it too!

All you need is an idea! If you don’t have an idea, find someone who does. That is how I partnered with Tyna to create this Irish food web site. She creates the content and I build the web site and follow the SiteSell method.
