    Answers to Your Questions

    You likely have a number of questions about the Internet and your business, so we've provided answers to some of the most common questions:

    How much does it cost to establish a web site?

    Each web site we create is unique and is customized to your specific business and needs. The cost varies depending on what you wish to do with your web site.

    Most of the small business web sites we build range from $1000 to $2500. Sites that are very simple can cost as little as $500 while more complex, database-driven sites may run up to $5000 or more.

    To get an estimate of the costs for your web project, please complete our request for a proposal form and we'll put together a plan and cost breakdown that will suit your specific needs and budget.

    For a detailed analysis of the costs you can expect, read our article Costs of Establishing A Web Site.

    What do I need to know to establish a web site?
    All you need to know is how your business operates and who your potential customers are. A web consultant such as AFAB can work directly with you to combine your knowledge of your business with our experience on the Internet to produce the most effective web site possible.

    How long will it take to create our web site?
    The time to develop a web site varies from project to project, however, with AFAB we'll be able to create an average-sized site within 4-6 weeks from when we receive the information for the site from you.

    Aren't there cheaper options for building a web site?

At AFAB, we have over 10 years of experience in design and marketing to ensure that you will get maximum results from your web project.

    What is the Internet and how does it work?
    The Internet is a collection of computers around the world that are linked together through an international network. This network is relatively unstructured and is growing at a dizzying pace. The actual operation of it is complicated and more than you need to understand to become involved. You may think of your web site as a collection of files that is stored on a computer that is permanently connected to the Internet's network. This means that your web site is "open for business" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    What is a "web site"?
    An Internet web site is a collection of pages that are placed on the World Wide Web for viewing by anyone with Internet access. These pages are "hyperlinked" together to provide easy viewing and navigation. Each page may contain text, information, pictures, graphics, video, sound, and interactive programs. A web site may also be known as "web page," "home page," or "Internet site."

    Who uses the Internet?
    The Internet, and especially the World Wide Web, is used by a wide range of people with differing backgrounds and educational levels. Although the typical users have traditionally been young, educated males, the demographics have been evolving rapidly and there are a significant number of users from almost all demographic groups. There chances are great that there are enough of your potential customers online to make the Internet a valuable resource for your business.

    Isn't the Internet used mainly for finding dirty pictures and playing games?
    Absolutely not. The Internet is an information resource where the companies that provide the information are the ones who are gathering the customers. Many of the most successful companies in the world now maintain an Internet web site... just flip through any magazine or watch the television and you will see the large number of companies that promote their web site address.

    Are people really making money on the Internet?
    Yes, but only those who have put the time, money and planning into ensuring that they take full advantage of this medium. To get the results you desire from your company web site, we recommend that you also take the time now to plan and design a site that appeals to your potential customers.
