Websites

When it comes to websites I build each by hand, but in two very different ways.
If you are in real estate I hope you'll understand my analogy.

"The Custom Home"

With this option, you own everything from the hosting to the code. You'll setup your own hosting account.  You'll decide what you want and where. You'll also decide what options you want, if any.  If this sounds technical, don't worry, I'll walk you through it the whole way. Like a custom built home, once it's built it's yours to do whatever you want with.

Pros:
  • You only purchase the features you'll need.
  • Lower ongoing costs.
  • Security in ownership.
Cons:
  • Higher upfront costs.
  • You'll need to keep the site updated and maintained.  * There is an ongoing managed option available for this package.
 

"The Luxury Condo"

With this option, everything on the backend is managed for you. Every bell and every whistle is included. Hosting is setup on a fast and secure server that's optimized for Wordpress. There's three basic designs and all are move in ready. All you need is your content! All updates, backups, changes, problems and security are all covered and fully managed.

Pros:
  • Every option is included.
  • Nothing to worry about.
  • Backed up every week.
  • Lower entry cost.
Cons:
  • Ongoing maintenance fee.
  • Limitation in design.
 
* No matter which way you go, your content is ALWAYS yours!

The Managed EVERYTHING Website!

A great semi custom website, with great SEO, with great lead capture, with a lower entry cost.

For $499 and just $54/ month, look at everything you get!

Let's start with the included hosting.

ENHANCED WORDPRESS SECURITY

A Security First Approach to WordPress Hosting

Automatic Updates - Your WordPress core is kept up to date to keep your site protected. We'll also keep all your plugins and themes up to date.
Green Hosting! - Your site will be hosted on a server that sources energy from wind and solar! They have a 99.9% uptime rating and a negative 300% carbon footprint! How cool is that?
Brute Force & DDoS Protection - Your site will have the best tools to keep the bad guys out and keep you up and running!
Consistently Fast Page Loads - Only the best hardware is used on our servers to power your WordPress website. Your site will be built with speed in mind.
Real-Time Security Scanning - We’ll actively scan & block known vulnerabilities to protect your site plus real-time 24/7 server monitoring to pro-actively prevent issues.
Daily Backups - Your entire website is backed up daily to our off-site backup servers. (Amazon S3)

Mobile Responsive Design

Your site will look great on any desktop, tablet or phone.

Pick from one of three great modern designs - Parallax, Magazine, or Hybrid style. Choose the style that best matches your content. Change your theme on an annual basis.
Be found in Google - Did you know that Google will not list NON Mobile Responsive sites in the mobile search results? More than 1/2 of your traffic will come from mobile. Your site will be included in the search results!
Killer Lead Capture - You'll have all the custom forms that will allow you to have killer lead capture. You can combine them with landing pages or use them anywhere you like.
Better SEO - Search Engine Optimization comes with each of these sites. Your site will also have it's sitemap submitted to Google automatically!
Landing Pages - Run better Facebook ad campaigns by sending them to a targeted squeeze page. A squeeze page removes the header, sidebar and footer leaving just the content you want them to concentrate on.
Social Media - Your site will have social media icons for your readers to share your content. If you have a Facebook Page, your site will showcase that on the sidebar or footer.

Plugins, custom post types, and Features?

You'll get it all. FAQ, Testimonials, Newsletter... Everything!

FAQs - This custom post type allows each individual question (and answer) to be indexed by Google. That's a great SEO play as the title of each question more closely matches what people search for in Google. FAQs can also be split into separate categories and displayed in the middle of pages.
Newsletter - If you are writing blog posts you'll also have an automated newsletter. The newsletter will have the same look and feel of your website with snippets of each blog post. Each snippet will lead back to your website.
Facebook Tracking Pixels - Harness the power of proper Facebook advertising by using a Facebook Tracking Pixel. The Facebook pixel allows you to place a single pixel across your entire website to report conversions, build audiences and get rich insights about how people use your website.
Testimonials - A custom post type much like the FAQ but with a different focus. These too can be categorized and then displayed in a variety of ways. Buyer testimonials can be cycled inside a Buyers page, seller testimonials can be cycled inside a Sellers page.
IDX Integration - Bring your own 3rd party IDX to the party and we'll incorporate it into your website. Keep them within your site with "Search for Homes". Set up custom searches, dynamically display current properties.
Google Analytics - You can't rely just on Facebook. Knowing your audience and what they want is an important success factor for any website. The best way to know your audience is through your traffic stats and this is exactly what Google Analytics provides.
