Building an new website in Kelowna? I would love to help! Lets connect after the following is prepared.

I am setting up new projects at $50 per hour. How many hours does it take to build a website? It takes 20 to 100 hours depending on the content and design enhancements.

If the following is completed, depending on how many pages and to what degree we customize the pre-made web designs listed below, it could take as little as 20 hours but if your website has more portfolio items, blog posts, special pages etc, it will take longer. We can also create special web apps, programs, email marketing systems, video and animations.

The 20 hours would include the set up of the host and domain, email and Google My Business. This basic business package will enable your business to have a professional website, get reviews on Google and have a professional email set up that merges with your existing email habits.

The first stage of Search Engine Optimization set-up of many SEO elements on each page of your new website will also help your search engine rankings. Your site does not come with any guarantee of Google search ranking but if new content like portfolios or blog posts are uploaded on regular basis, the site could rank very well. Also, to get good rankings on Google, it requires that links from other websites link to your website. Worried about how you will upload portfolio posts or blogs? You’ll have that taken care of because with our basic website package, we always include training the business owner or staff in how to use the new website!

The best way to begin acquiring back links is to sign up for free listings in local business directories like Yellow Pages and KelownaNow, Yelp etc. You can do those things but First Page Solutions also has the perfect package to provide an effective push for that initial ‘off-site’ optimisation.

Our Off-Site Optimization package, or Local SEO package is an integral part of every new digital marketing campaign and it is included in our monthly website package called TOAST. The Local SEO package can also be purchased individually for $1000 (20 hours of work by First Page Solutions local SEO team.)

Ok, here is step one in building your Kelowna business website.

  1. Choose one of these designs that suits your business vision or a combination of them.
    Choose the page layouts / sections of a page that you like from any of these designs. We can mix and match the pages of each design you like the look of to make one whole website. (These designs showcase the body of the site, we will develop your header which encases your menu items and logo)
  2. Provide the colour selection you want to use by selecting a colour scheme from this website
  3. In an email or several emails with descriptive Subject titles, attach images with file names that describe what the images are and then in the email note the web page you want it on. For example, – stress massage picture for top of the services page.
  4. Review the sample pages that are listed on the sample website layout that you chose. Note that each sample layout includes text that is place holder text or “lorem ipsum” text that has no meaning. For each section place holder text that is shown on each page, email us the text that we should use in your website. We will review your text and help write more content if needed.

    For example your first email for text instructions could include instruction such as:
    Home page
    Section One:Title: bakers dozen – Sub title: schones muffins and cupcakes – content: bakery, coffe shop and applie pie. An American dream ….
    Section Two: – you get the idea

    Just write the most descriptive text you can and as much as you can. Brevity is not the goal. More text will help search engines understand the who what when where and why of your business more effectively.

    Finally, a local address is crucial to ranking. (It is the only way to effectively get into Google My Business)
    You can create a unique address from a street address or home address. For example, if your home address is 1500 Kalmalka Lake Rd, you can create a new business address such as 101 1500 Kalmalka Lake Rd.
