Web Design and Development For Small Businesses

How can HomerunDesign help with your web project?
HomerunDesign specializes on building great web sites for small businesses and individuals. Although primarily serving local business in Scranton, Carbondale, Clarks Summit and Pocono area, the actual distance is no limitation.

After all, HomerunDesign is helping with business needs of its clients, and they certainly are not limited to geographical location. And neither are the web design services HomerunDesign offers! You will always receive not only a great web site designed with you in mind, but also a customer service that will make you come back to HomerunDesign with all your future web design needs.

Remember, your web site represents your business. Just as everyone recognizes the importance of a packaging, your web site acts the same way for your business image. Nice web site is not going to help a poorly ran business, but a bad web site can certainly damage otherwise well-ran business. But imagine to have a great web site and a great business. Now that’s a match in heaven.

Do you need a web site?
You may wonder if you really need a web site. You do not need to use your web site to sell your product to benefit from your online presence. In fact, most web sites do not sell anything, or at least do not process online payments. But the major advantage of a web site, no matter how small your business is, is that people simple expect you to have one. They want to see what’s going on with your business, they check to see information about special in-store offers, they want to check your store hours…..they simply want to stay informed.

Plus, do not dismiss the potential for national, or even international orders the Internet provides for your small business! Have you seen all that crazy stuff that sells on Ebay, and is bought by people worldwide? No matter what product or service you offer, the chances are, there is always someone online searching for information about exactly that product or service. So why not to utilize this power to your advantage?

The bottom line is, that if you are not on the Internet, people outside of your area will not know about your business, and people within your area will wonder, why they have to call you on the phone to see when does your store closes…..

What do you get?
That depends on the service needed. However, should you decide to go for a custom web site, you will get:
