is a difference!
Many start with simply listing their business on various
sites. Doing some advertising on the Internet. The
Creation of a Web-Page Program is key and eventually
leads to developing a Fully Functioning Web-Site.
Your Web-Page can be hosted on The Edmonton Bulletin
& Bulletin International Site Or another business/personal
site of your choice with consent of the host. Our
only caution out-side of our control, is that you
make sure the host you choose provides the option
of access to your information and understands you
are owner. In today's age a written agreement or statement
stating these facts is a good idea.
Taking the time to create a Web-Page is important!
Despite what others may have told you, Page and Site
creation is a "building process" that is meant to
enhance your business presence on-line. We take the
time and sit down with you to produce the type of
design that will best suit your needs and work well
for your business or organization. All the Pages we
have been involved with are totally "user friendly"
and can be viewed by virtually all browsers. Companies
of all shapes and sizes are coming to us because of
our willingness to learn about their business and
present a number of drafts before the information
is loaded to a site or host server. The process allows
for the total control of the Web-Page and it's design,
to remain in the hands of the business we are working
with! Today this is becoming a very important issue.
A Web-Page consists of Your Logo/Crest, Two Pictures,
All pertinent contact information and a FULL Write-up
on your business. We add hyper-links to connect you
to other related Pages and Sites and ask that these
Pages and Sites link back to yours. Additional pages
can be added to enhance your program and form the
basis to develop a Full-Fledged Web-Site.
A Page or Sites Completion: Depends on the work involved,
number of pages in the program, amount of information
to be keyed in, there's the creativity aspect, and
design or graphic artwork required to complete the
job. The drafts and layout of your information can
be an excieting process. You get a preview of how
your business will be presented on the internet. Ideally
we would like to get final approval before the Page
Program or Site is loaded to the server that hosts
your information. On adverage, if everything goes
according to plan, this process alone can run anywhere
from (4) four to (6) six weeks.
This is not a process you would want to rush, as webmasters
do need time and freedom to create. Especially in
the area of Custom Design. The time element is largely
dependent on the number of products & services you
are offering. Content, Graphics, Pictures will also
determine the size of the Web-Page or Site Program
and what format would work the best.
Effectiveness & Results
Depending on the nature of your business will have
a direct effect on results once you are up and running.
There are seasonal issues, costs associated, a number
of factors that may generate interest in what you
are offering, effecting the delivery of the appropriate
results. In these cases, more investigation and research
may have to be applied. We are limited as to our efforts
are centred around your needs and funds invested.
Results vary from business to business. There are
a number of factors that influence productivity or
effectiveness. Much depends on how actively you promote
the Web-page or Site. There is the strength of your
business and how well known or established it is!
Is your Web-Address on your business cards, customer
receipts or purchase orders? We take a great deal
of pride in our efforts. Much of our success has been
built around our willingness to Understand and grasp
the nature of your business.
You can find more interesting information on this
subject in "FAQ".

saving you time, money and maximizing your investment.
This is why our services are becoming more and more
appealing to businesses looking to build on the Internet.

We have the resources to assist you in the development
and hosting of a Stand - Alone - Independent - Web-Site.
Stand - Alone - Independent - Web-Sites require the
registration and clearance of your own Web-Address
or Domain Name. We have a number of options that will
assist you in this procedure. Registration of a .com
or .net domain name is done through Internet Solutions
and costs 70.00 U.S., for two years or 109.22 CDN,
and 35.00 U.S., for every year following. As to the
many number of Domains being registered, we can expect
a wait before approval is obtained and you must have
a server to register them. If you are a provincially
or nationally registered Canadian business, you can
apply for; .ab.ca or .ca domain names. The wait time
on these are longer, however, Once you obtain this
name, it is yours for life and currently there is
no cost. Applications are being processed anywhere
from 6-8 weeks. The Registering of a Domain Name's
is largely to indicate that you are the owner of this
name and site. For your protection, make sure you
are listed as the Administrative Contact. You have
an option of allowing us to screen your mail or you
will need a line/cable connection, and can choose
the one best suited or available. To host your site,
you will require A SERVER. See "HOSTING" for all the
options. Overall, the costs for Page & Site development
have dropped considerably over the last three years
making "The Internet", a serious consideration for
home, small & large businesses.
Many businesses are making the statement, "The Internet
is quickly becoming a very effective and efficient
tool. If your not on it, you'd better get to it or
you'll be lost in the shuffle!" From the point of
attracting and doing business to e-mail communication
The Internet is the way to go, there's no argument.
Cutting down on long distance costs and the delivery
of important graphics or pictures not adequately displayed
by Fax or Photo-Copy.. A Facsimile is quickly being
replaced by e-mail, no more wasted paper! Many businesses
are only utilizing fax machines for hard copy quotes,
requests, purchase orders and memos. E-mail is becoming
the total information source and delivery system.
