I get the question in many meetings to compare why thousands of dollars spent with Five Technology is better than using one of the template web design options or a packaged web solution. Of course you get what you pay for, but here is a little question I fire back. Would you go through a drive-thru to order a website from McWebsite’s?
It’s right up our alley to produce high end web designs for our clients, but what about our offline image and marketing? I decided it was time to get some Five Technology apparel to keep us looking good offline for client meetings, events and so forth. We worked with Peggy Jindra and Great Garments Plus, a promotional products and apparel company out of Rogers, MN. Peggy and her staff did a fabulous job in helping us pick out the right product lines, quality and colors.
Most small businesses have heard of blogging, some read a few blogs and others have jumped into business blogging already. You might be wondering if you should start a blog for your small business. Most small business owners or management I talk to have some misconceptions on blogging. These “blog fears” are often a combination of misinformation from uninformed sources and their own inexperience.
To date this year, Five Technology has donated our web design services and content management solution for two different local organizations. The first was to the “Vote Yes” committee in Delano for their efforts in getting two school referendums passed. The second website has just recently been released and is for the non-profit Buffalo, Minnesota Food Shelf.
I work with clients from time to time that are basically ashamed they have never taken the opportunity to acquire permission to market to their customers via email. It’s not a big deal, and it’s better to start today then to wait another week, month or year!
If you are a service based business you need your website to create, build or maintain a high level of trust. Whether you are a service for consumers (lawn care, electrician, chiropractor, mechanic) or a service for businesses (consultant, accountant, web designer, bank), you are after the user’s trust.
