Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a website if I already have a Yelp (or Facebook) page.

A common misconception from entrepreneurs is that they don’t need a website because they’re on a social media site. Your customers need a static, reliable place to get first hand information about your business. Plus, why would you let the reputation and information about your business belong to a review or social media site? Control the narrative!

Please click here to discover the top reasons you need a website, even (especially) if you have other social media accounts.

What does "responsive" mean, for websites?

Responsive means that your website will “respond” and adapt to any type of device your customers are using. Your webpage will automatically adjust to look great on a phone, a tablet and a computer. Another word for this is “optimized.” You definitely need a responsive/optimized website otherwise it will be hard to navigate and your potential customers will likely get frustrated.

How do I know if my website is working well?

With each of our website packages you’ll get Google Analytics, which will help you determine how effective your website is. You can track all kinds of things on Google Analytics, including how many visitors you have, what devices they are using, where they’re from, what links they click on, how long they stay on your website, etc. You can also have a website-only promotions and you can see how many people are redeeming these promotions.

We recommend looking at your website statistics at least once a week. You will drive additional traffic to your website by having it cross-linked with your Google, Yelp, Facebook and Instagram pages.

What is hosting?

Hosting is an online service that stores all the data of your website. If your website is the house, your hosting is the property that it sits on. Hosting ranges in prices (from about $60/year to upwards of $300/year), depending on how much storage you need and how fast you’d like your website to load. Make sure to choose a reputable hosting company with minimal downtime and maximum processing speeds. 

Each of our website packages at least 3 months of free hosting, and we can certainly continue to host your website after that, if you’d like.

What is a domain?

A domain is your website address or URL (Uniform Resource Locator)… generally www.YourDomain.com. It is what people can type into their URL bar to get right to your website. Domains generally cost between $10 and $15 for the first year and $19 to $35 for each additional year.

You will need to choose a unique domain name for your website, and we can help you choose it and purchase it. Try to choose a domain name that is easy to remember, easy to spell, as short as possible, and very close to your business name.

How much will a website cost?

Websites vary greatly in cost. If you have the time and skillset (or are willing to take the time to learn), you can use a website builder program with hosting included for around $50/month. Most website design agencies charge $1,500 to $3,000 for a basic template website with 5 pages, with custom and/or large websites costing between $8,000 and $20,000.

Our mission at OahuConnect is to help every small business reach its customers, as quickly, easily and affordably as possible. Our basic website packages range from $499 to $999 and our more custom, larger website projects range from $1,000 to $4,000.

What do I need to have ready before I get a website developed?

Don’t put off getting a website because you don’t think you’re ready. You’re ready! Typically, we will collect some information from you about your history, your customer base, your hours, your parking situation, any good photos you have, etc.

How will a website help me?
