PageOne Rates Increase Letter

Dear Valued Client,

I hope that this email finds you well.

Beginning October 1st 2014 we will be enacting our first ever across the board rate increase on products and services.  PageOne opened up shop in the fall of 2005 and since then we have seen many cost of business increases as we are sure you have as well over the years.

Through that time we have held our pricing and provided an ever increasing level of service, provided technology upgrades to client websites, invested in our own personnel, equipment upgrades, software upgrades and continuing education to provide high level and knowledgeable service to our clients.

The rate increase on all services such as maintenance packages, domains, SSL certificates, design, consulting and marketing services will see a 20% increase.  For example, if you subscribe to a  product that is $49.95 per month, the new rate will be $59.94.  Our new standard rate for all services will now be $26.25 per ¼ hour (The average time used for simple website updates) or $105.00 per hour.

In light of this increase, until the end of this month (September 2014) we invite you to purchase blocks of time and/or maintenance packages in advance at the current rate, good for up to 1 year from date of purchase.  If this is of interest to you please put in a support ticket with your request or give us a call and we will be more than happy to take care of setting up the advance package for you.

Thank you for being our client and as always please let us know if there is any web or online marketing need we can help you with.

All The Best,
The PageOne Team

The Mobile Tipping Point – Mobile Is Now The Majority

Mobile-WebJust read this report about Amazon.com and an analysis of their customers over the holiday shopping season: http://www.mobilecommercedaily.com/amazon-meets-with-success-and-challenges-this-holiday-season

What it drove home for me was that, of all the shoppers that bought products from them, more than 50% shopped via a mobile device or tablet!  That is an incredibly high number!  It proves that mobile shoppers and web browsers are now THE MAJORITY, not the minority, and it is only going to increase from here.

If you are skeptical of where mobile is going, this should put that thought to rest…  What can you for your business?  Make sure you look good and are accessible to mobile devices.

Want More Business? Then Start Blogging…

Do you think blogs are only for people who want to vent their emotions and personal opinions? Or maybe that you have to be technically astute… up to date on all the new high tech gadgets to be able to write one? Or maybe you think that blogging is just for high tech pundits?

Well, nothing could be further from the truth. The main focus of bloggers today is to interact and attract customers. Most blogs are now written to improve a business or individual’s online presence and enhance their brand. And with the amazingly advanced yet simple blogging software, anyone can have a blog.

Corporate Blogging is now Big Business

Why? Simply- having a blog on a business site has become one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to reach customers and interact with them. With a blog a business’s message can be totally versatile and adaptable… affording the extra space every business needs to express their main message. Certainly  a company can now address subject matters that may just not warrant a press release.

Blogging Has Come a Long Way

Let’s look more deeply into the benefits. Here’s three big ones-

  • The ability to have your voice heard. You can talk about more informal topics that are not in the main “product page” on your site. It gives you a personal connection to your customers, business associates, and other contacts. For an entrepreneur, it’s a more intimate way to connect and interact with your clients or colleagues.  They’re people, just like you, and a blog allows you to make that connection.

  • A blog will assist in building a following of loyal fans. When you update your blog consistently and frequently, people will feel compelled to come back and get involved. But content is king only if your blog is engaging. Offering expert advice, sharing great new ideas and even selling your company’s products and services in a more personal way… that’s what will bring people back. They’ll become loyal to your brand, you increase your overall site traffic, and you keep your brand at the forefront of their minds.

  • Money…. If you can spend a fraction of the cost… spend thousands instead of millions of dollars on improving your online brand presence… that is one BIG benefit. Your ROI is looking a whole lot better. Thanks to the Internet, the rise of blogging, and the increasing popularity of social media, companies are much better equipped to take advantage of the vast consumer base and not spend lots and lots of advertising dollars.

In conclusion, whether you are thinking about adding a blog to your company’s site or you are an entrepreneur looking to improve your outreach, the benefits are incredible. Is there a better way to entice your customers to shop, research, learn and be involved. NO, not any more there isn’t!
