What makes SLGD different from web development competitors

Hello Potential Client,

(Hi Samuel, we are meeting with a few people before we make a decision.  Will keep you posted.  Thanks.)
That’s understandable.
What makes Samuel Little Graphic Design different from the rest is that we offer marketing consultation free. We make suggestions on how to market your business and how to get a better return on your investment. You will find that when comparing apples to apples that Samuel Little Graphic Design provides a better value for the price than our competitors. Web development is not a hobby for Samuel Little Graphic Design. We are out in the market everyday knowing what makes you visible to your customer/client/patient whether it be web or print. Remember, you’ll get what you pay for.

We have a lot of competitors but most are non-direct competitors. Here is an example .
A hobby web designer will only provide a minimal level of service and skill. Putting pretty pictures and text (word for word) on a web page and linking the pages together is not sufficient. You’ll pay minimal price for the site that will not do nothing for you. In most cases it will take longer than expected to design, with no support or customer service. The designer has the keys to your site and you’ll never see or hear from them again. (See our web site recovery service below.)

Our other competitors are web development companies that do web development but don’t provide the marketing component. Then there are web development companies that do provide the marketing component but their rates are 2 to 3 times higher than Samuel Little Graphic Design.

Samuel Little Graphic Design has over 25 years of print design/marketing experience and over 14 years of web site development experience.

Samuel Little Graphic Design provides a better return on investment because Samuel Little Graphic Design is in-tuned with the market and what marketing opportunities are available to small to medium size businesses. Trying to decide on what web development to choose? Choose Samuel Little Graphic Design, you’ll be glad you did.

Lost your web site or webmaster?
Samuel Little Graphic Design provides a Web Site Recovery service.

Web Site Recovery service:
Some come to us with “My site is down and I don’t know where it is or how to get to it”. This happens with webmasters that fall off the face of the earth (when life gets in the way) and web hosting companies that merge and get bought several times over…then you just fall through the cracks.

Samuel Little Graphic Design researches and investigates the findings of your web sites’ hosting, domains and other services in order to return them and their credentials to the proper owner. Once this is determined Samuel Little Graphic Design will get your web site back on track to continue its purpose with our expertise in web development, hosting, email, online marketing and other services. In a panic? Contact us from here: http://www.slgd.com.

Improve your company brand by using a domain e-mail address

Potential Client: Here’s a potential client that says we can’t spend anything on advertising because of the down economy. Wellll, you’ve got to start somewhere and here it is. This potential client’s email address is: MyName@hotmail.com

One inexpensive tip:
Just think about this.
Every time you send out an email which is about how many a day (I sent out 39 email today – 021810)?
You’re advertising for hotmail (aol, comcast, verizon, earthlink, etc.) and not your company by using a hotmail email acct. and not your own MyName@MyDomainName.com

One small step…one step in improving your brand.

You may ask…Well, Samuel how do I fix this?
There’s not a way to get around it in Hotmail…they still get their plug in on the bottom of every email.
You need to move to Gmail (free) or Yahoo Plus (19.99/yr.)
I’ve been with Yahoo Plus for several years and it’s worked great for me, however Jan. 2010, I moved to gmail because of the new smartphones and I use their online calendar…Google has a lot of free services and products available. For me, they rank right up there with Apple. You think it…it can be done.

So, where do you start? Purchase a domain from http://www.slgdhosting.com and we’ll do the rest for a set up/training fee.

Benefits of having a domain email address:
-Your email address never changes as long as you renew your domain.
-Your email address can be whatever you want: services@, Joe.Jones@, work@, Me@, etc.
-You can forward your email to another email address which is what we are recommended above (I can explain later).
-You brand your business with every email that goes out and in.
-If people can’t remember your web site address they can assume that it’s the same as your “domain” email address.

So, if you want to look smart, never have to change your email address, build your business brand…contact Samuel Little Graphic Design at 804-545-7503 or visit us on the web at http://www.slgd.com. We’ll get you started.
