AA WEB DESIGN SERVICES
ARCY Acres is now providing Internet Web Design and hosting services as a means to offer fellow Christmas tree growers, and other small business owners, an opportunity to have an Internet presence at a relatively low cost. In today's environment, a presence on the internet is a prerequisite to the operation of a successful and growing business. Almost all of today's consumers utilize the internet for a good part, if not all, of their unique shopping needs, either to purchase their items, or, at the minimum to locate nearby commercial enterprises that can fulfill their needs. An analysis of the last three years at ARCY Acres has shown that over 40% of our new customers during the Christmas season, have located us through some internet reference, either directly, or through links from other established Christmas tree sites (e.g. National Christmas Tree Association, TN Christmas Tree Growers Association, Pick TN Products site, or others). Without an internet presence, this figure represents a significant amount of potential sales which could have been lost. With many of our fellow growers in the TCTGA not currently possessing Web Sites in their arsenal of marketing venues, we are attempting to partner with them to increase their business potential through a low-cost internet presence by working with them to design and host a low cost option in today's electronic age of commercial enterprise.
Our package offerings include the procurement of a custom web domain (www.yourname.com), a custom designed web package (of a varied number of pages), and a complete year of internet hosting service (at a significant savings when paid in advance), with text and picture update of existing pages during the first year. Renewable hosting at one year intervals are subject to host server fees, but are expected to remain at the current rate. Additional pages are offerred at a stated price per page (currently $75.00), and may be any of a varied selection (text, picture gallery, market basket, etc.).
