There are many advertisements on TV and You Tube, etc for companies who say it’s easy to set up a site yourself. And while it is true, now, with certain platforms anyone can build a website. However, not everyone can build a good quality and engaging website that will be found by customers. That is were I come in.
PRO'S OF USING WORDPRESS
There can be charges for Pro versions of plugins (that are often worth investing in) that extend functionality of a site but these are usually one off or annual payments and inexpensive.
WordPress does not charge a commission to sell.
CON'S OF DIY COMPANIES
Monthly charges and can add up as you may be charged monthly for Add-Ons.
Additionally E-commerce stores will take a commission of your product sale, as will the payment provider. These commissions can add up.
I don’t use templates and can create custom designs suited to your business needs.
WordPress offers complete flexibility to expand and there are millions of Add Ons available.
There are often limitations to what designs you can have as templates are used with limited facilities to change them.
Additionally, there may be limitations of functionality or Add Ons that are available.
I provide training and support on how to take your business forward on its SEO journey.
Large companies provide no training on your site on how to manage and administer your website and no Search Engine Optimisation (getting your website to show up on search engines such as Google) training.
With Sherbert Monkey you get a custom built site for your needs based on site planning that is completed for a pre-set budget. Many additional plugins are free, pay once or annual payments meaning you don’t have huge monthly costs. There are no limitations on the design and any design can be created for your brand. Most importantly at the start for any new online business you get support. Instead a generic customer service line you get my mobile and face to face training from a real person.
As an individual getting businesses online I actually do care about your website and will do everything to create a site that represents your business and help build your business as you grow.
