Off-line Business

The “Ready to launch” business package for off-line businesses

If you have a ‘bricks and mortar’ business then an on-line presence is becoming increasingly important – a website, perhaps a blog as well, a social medis presence on Facebook and Twitter. You’d be surprised at the number of hotels, restaurants, bars, spas, language schools etc that are on Facebook and busy Tweeting away on Twitter.

BUT … you don’t want the hassle of setting up the business on the internet, and know that you should be working on getting in customers and doing what you do best and only you can.

We make it so easy for you because we will do everything for you!

Domain Name

We will guide you in your choice of domain name and how to buy your domain name.

Hosting

We recommend Bluehost for WordPress sites – they have a well-established reputation and we have always found their customer service staff unbelievably helpful.

Web Presence

Everyone is using WordPress as the platform for their websites and blogs and it’s easy to see why. We will build you a customised and branded website that includes all the built-in plug-ins and technologies that you’ll need. You will receive a guide to using your WordPress site so that you can make updates yourself and have full control over its appearance and content.

Newsletter template and autoresponders set up

To market your business you need to be able to communicate with your target audience. What better way than through the use of an e-zine or newsletter. We will put a sign-up box on your website so that you can capture the names and email addresses of people who consent to receive your newsletter (their opt-in is essential so that you are not spamming). In this way you can show your expertise in an article, share your news, tips and of course showcase special offers or new services. You need a lead capture system either through your shopping cart or an outside source such as Aweber or Constant Contact. We will set all of this up for you.

E-mail Setup

We will set an e mail system so that you all information from your support systems and customers are in one place that can be accessed via the internet. This means you can access it from anywhere in the world and have VA’s working for you.

Blog

A blog is a great way to communicate with your customers and gather feedback from them. We set this up on your WordPress site and can even helo you get your first posts written.

Social Media presence

A social media presence is critical to the success of your business. We will set you up on Facebook and Twitter. If you are there already we will ensure that you really are set up for business. You will also receive a guide to using social media for business. 

Coaching Calls

As part of this package, you have 2 one-hour calls with Gillian.  During the  first call, we will discuss your business and determine what aspects to profile on your website, what your current marketing strategies are, the type of customers you have and are targetting. 

Training Call

We do a one-hour live call in conjunction with training documents and procedures manuals.
