Hello, my name is Steve Combs and I live in San Angelo tx. I recently retired from the local newspaper after 25 years working in the advertising department. I have decided to build simple affordable websites for small businesses like yours. Since I am just getting started I am offering a terrific deal. There is a company advertising on T.V. that they will build your website for free and then you pay hosting and support. They start out at $114 monthly. I am offering the same deal, I will build your website for free and offer hosting and support for only $199 for the YEAR! If you already have hosting I will build your website for only $99. You will pay nothing up front. I will put your site together and if you like it then we will move forward and if not, no harm no foul. Let me know if you are interested. Feel free to call me anytime at 3253740315. Please leave a message if I do not answer. I will return your call promptly. Look forward to hearing from you.

You can pay $10,000.00 for a website or get a free website but if no one sees it... what does it really matter? And if your town has all the big services.... good luck even with a professional. The big name companies spend more on SEO in 1 year than you will probably make in profit in 10 years. There is always the exception.... but I don't like throwing my money in the air and hoping to be the exception.

And nowadays who ever builds the site kinda needs to do the SEO. But I bet that's the catch. That person builds the site for free then wants to charge for SEO and maintaining it.

couldn't agree more. People these days give SEO way too much credit. I doubt it has any significant boosts for cleaners like us.

So as far as I understood this offer is only for companies, not private clients?
I am interested to hear at first about my website and then further discussions can be possible if you are interested.

Ummm - I am sure there is a catch. My wife owns a small business marketing company and they see this type of offer all the time. Unfortunately, people buy into it because it sounds great. A cheap website - and it is great if you only intend to put it on your business card or your van to solidify that your business is "well established".

If you don't want to get new business through a website, then this is a good deal. If you want a website to provide you with an avenue to new business, this is not the right deal for you. Find a professional marketing company that offers web design, optimization and most importantly business consulting. It's not enough to give you a good website, your marketing partner should be just that - a partner who works to help your business grow (not just online).

If you are looking for the real deal - my wife is always happy to help small business owners. Her business is Sprout Digital Ltd in Dayton, Ohio but she works with people all over the globe. sprout-digital dot com.

Well, it has to be done right. And it can be done very well for any cleaning company! We have a Miami hood cleaning company that we were able to get to the top of Google Search in 90 days. Now we get 8-15 calls every day for quotes.

So, SEO can make a difference. You have to have great content and pages that drive potential clients to actually CALL YOU. That, is true MARKETING over SEO, but you need to do that too. I've seen countless cleaning company websites where it is actually hard to find the companies phone number or the only way they can make contact is through a webform (that may or may not work!).

Try our SEO out. Go to Google and search for anything related to hood cleaning in Miami. Watch how well miamihoodcleaningpros.com ranks for the important search phrases:
Miami Hood Cleaning
Miami Restaurant Exhaust Hood Cleaning
Miami Restaurant Kitchen Hood Cleaning

Miamihoodcleaningpros.com is solid for SEO and if you look at our page, either on a computer or a mobile phone, it's very easy to find our phone number and call.

ls this offer still available, building free website?
They were talking about how WIX would build the site for free, but then hold the site forever and make you pay through the nose for it later.

My buddy Terry in Sioux Falls just got away from them but he had to get a whole new domain. So he now has siouxfallshousecleaningservice.com It's a little long - but he seems to think it will work better than his old WIX site.
