In the competitive landscape of Belleville web design I stand out with the quality of my service and a commitment to friendly client care. I won’t just build you a website, I’ll also put it on the search engines’ radar, and ensure you get the best website design for your business.
Website Design and Web Marketing Services in Belleville
My web design service is as modern as it is customizable. It depends largely on the the unique goals for your website design, as well as your preferences and the amount of content you’re able to provide. In a typical website contract it is the client’s responsibility to provide all content. This is the most cost-effective option, however it may not be the best for you.
Creating website content takes time and expertise which you may prefer to outsource, and if it isn’t optimized to pull the almighty eyes of Google, it won’t get the kind of attention you’re hoping for.
Pricing varies depending on the project, as well as whether or not you subscribe to ongoing management. A number of factors including the type of website you want, the marketing services it requires, and the competition it will face. For example, it’s usually easier to rank a local business in Belleville than the same business in Toronto, because Toronto has so much more competition.
Varying levels of competition is just one of the truths of digital marketing, but if you have a small local business it’s my goal to help you get more customers for your company.

That’s where SEO writing differs from posting similar media on social platforms. While social is great for immediate exposure and building relationships, nothing can bring your brand authority like powerful SEO.
My general recommendation for businesses that are just getting started online is a 3-5 page website with basic brochure functionality. This is quite literally like an online brochure which you can show to anyone, anywhere simply by providing a link, for example via email, social media, word of mouth, or business card. If you want people to organically stumble across your site using a search engine, however, you’ll need to some SEO to capture the spiders’ hearts.
Website Maintenance and Care – Get Peace of Mind
While you do have the option of buying your website outright and performing maintenance and care yourself, it’s my recommendation that most business owners should outsource these activities. The nature of web design and development is that, until you become something of an expert, the process can be long and painful. In most cases I find that entrepreneurs benefit much more from focusing on their own business rather than worrying about resizing images and matching colors and creating custom landing pages.
While the beginning of a client-developer relationship is always interesting in web design, within a few months of regular communication you’ll learn the vocabulary and be able to more effectively communicate your desires. At the same time, I’ll be learning more about your taste and style. This will make the creation of additional web pages in the future easier and faster, and allow us to focus on the important considerations such as content and SEO.
Small Business Web Design: Common Questions
What do I need to get a website?
There are essentially two components to a website: the domain name, and the hosting environment. A domain name is the URL of your website, and I recommend getting yours from https://domains.google.com.
Hosting is the server space in which your website actually exists, and there are more web hosting providers in Canada than you can shake a stick at. Because of this, I recommend that my clients let me host their websites for them. I’ve put significant time and energy into finding the best hosting for my websites, and I would hate to see a client’s site compromised by an uninformed choice.
WordPress vs. Wix: Which is better?
If you want my honest opinion, a self-hosted WordPress website is the best option for your small business website design. WordPress is much more flexible, professional, and closer to the cutting edge of web development. It has better SEO tools available and more options artistically, which would be enough for most developers on its own.
However, Wix is not without its merits. For some Belleville businesses, a low cost is the most important factor when considering web design and maintenance. If this is the case for you, Wix may work better as a starting point because they have slightly less expensive month-to-month costs than the website care packages I provide.
