Website Built For You

Creating a website that is the right fit for your brand or business

Create a website for your brand/business requires a lot of steps, this document is designed to give you a quick overview of why you may want to have a website, what is needed to make a website, and Arbornex estimate costs for creating a website for you.

Benefits of Owning a Website

  1. The website becomes your own platform. Unlike instagram, tiktok, twitter - all of those platforms are not yours, that’s why you can’t post certain things or could even get suspended for going against their policies. If you own your own website, you are in full control.

  2. A website can work for several different purposes:

    • eCommerce: sell stuff online

    • Booking: sell services online

    • Portfolio: display all of your work, art, etc

    • Resources: make all of your resources available

    • Landing Pages: Place for people to learn about your brand/service

  3. Makes your brand official and stand out better

  4. The website never closes, it works for you 24/7

  5. Helps you reach audiences around the country, around the world

What Is Needed to Have Your Own Website:

  1. Web Hosting

    • This is the location where your website lives. All websites need to be stored on a web server in order to be accessible online. Web servers are available through different web hosting providers.

    • Providers usually have an annual cost to these

  2. Website Address (domain name)

    • This is what people type to find your website (www.google.com)

    • Owning your domain name has an annual cost

  3. A website designer

    • This is the person who builds your website and makes it look consistent with your brand/business.

      • This comes with the cost of service/labor for the designer

      • This may come with additional costs depending on extra features your site may need

  4. Media Elements

    • Your website may need photos, written content, graphics or visuals that you created or own. For example if you’re selling products/merch, you will need to include photos of the products/merch 

    • If you don’t already have your branding set up, a website will also need to reflect your brand.

  5. A website operator

    • This is the person who updates and manages your website once it is set up and ready to go

      • If it is an online store, this person manages orders

      • If it is an online booking website, this person manages appointments

      • If it is an business/information/event website, this person is responsible for keeping that information up-to-date

        • Ideally this person should be the owner. If it is someone else, this comes with service/labor cost for that person.
