The reason con artists get away with what they get away with is, their victims are ashamed of their own blindness and their own gullibility, and they tend to just quietly go away.
The lack of knowledge by business owners is still exploited every day by someone with a good pitch. This happens in the web development field as much or more than any other. In web design, there is a big difference between a custom designed site and the various $25 templates and instant site creators like Wix, Square Space, Go Daddy, etc. out there for $10 per month. These “website in a box” solutions come with many shortcomings that are not immediately obvious to the small business owner. Unfortunately in this area of business what you don’t know can hurt you and cost you a lot of money.
In addition, too many businesses give no thought to why they want a website other than they were told they should have one and it is some item on a check list to do. So, most business owners give a designer a brochure and the “web designer” will buy a template for $25 and put the brochure on it. Most businesses will pay a lot of money thinking they got a great website because it was expensive. Thinking if it was expensive it must be good. Maybe they find a high school “techie” kid to do it on the cheap and think they got a deal. They are wrong on both counts.
Most business will then check off the list that they now have a website and move on. They never update them again and often forget about it altogether. Sadly, nobody ever finds these sites or visits them. Sites like this provide zero value to the business and might as well not exist at all.
Today having “a web site” is not enough by a long shot. At a bare minimum, a website needs to be:
We were really impressed with your ability to listen to our needs, even when we weren't entirely sure what they were, and translate that into an incredible Internet marketing strategy and web site!
Our company can build you a completely customized website that meet these criteria and many more that you probably didn’t even know you needed. We can build everything from simple websites to large complex sites including, but not limited to:
We utilize a variety of different platforms and technologies to create a website that is unique to you. It will display your brand, perform well, provide custom functionality and improve your business. In short it will bring in more leads, sales and profits. If you can think it up we can design and build it.
We have a unique process that we guide our customers through that will define exactly what they need in a website and the content that will be on that site. When we are finished with the planning process you will have a precise blueprint of what you need and why. We include a detailed timeline for delivery with specified milestones and resource requirements from you and us. Our process ensures that you get what you paid for and that we stay on time and on budget.
We wanted a comprehensive, interactive and user-friendly website that would allow us to promote our businesses, as well as provide a vehicle for the business community to interact with G-2000, Inc. We started with just a few basic ideas and Michael Temple took it many steps further!
Our pricing falls into 2 basic models depending on the customer and their needs: Monthly Retainer and Project Pricing.
If you choose our monthly retainer at a minimum all support, hosting, and maintenance is included. If something breaks or doesn’t work your monthly fee covers it. If you choose an upfront project fee instead we still supply support but we charge an hourly rate for that support. It can be provided on a “as needed” basis or in a monthly agreement.

Our company is pleased with our new web site and it has certainly enhanced our firm's marketing and sales efforts.
