It doesn’t need to be the best website out there (although it helps A LOT when your website makes an awesome first impression), but it needs to have some foundational elements to ensure you show up at the top of the page for search results when people are looking for cigar shops in your city and the surrounding areas.
There’s a lot we can do working with the website you already have, so we won’t push you to build a new one unless it’s going to be more cost-effective and speed up the results you want to see in getting more people into your shop and increasing your sales.
If you don’t have a website at all, we need to start by building one for you (separate from the monthly services seen on our pricing page).
Informational websites do as they sound – they give you information.
They don’t sell anything. Their entire purpose is to educate and inform your customers before they come into your shop.
If your top priority is getting more people in your brick and mortar shop, then an informational website is all you need.
If you also want to sell cigars, humidors, and accessories through your website then you’ll want an eCommerce website.
And fear not, if you’re not sure if you want to do eCommerce yet, start with an informational website and you can always add eCommerce capabilities later.
WordPress powers over 30% of the entire Internet these days. Literally one in ever three websites you go to will be a WordPress site. WordPress just means the platform or technology your site is built on.
The beauty of WordPress is you get the best of both worlds in what custom, hand-coded websites offer with unlimited design capabilities combined with the ease of use on the backend to update page content, like pictures and images, without having to know how to code.
We custom build all of our websites and come with a suite of extras, like an SEO foundation, best-in-class hosting, and an understanding of how the cigar aficionado looks for and uses a website when looking for information or buying a cigar.
