If you are paying for print advertising, or handing out business cards and do not have a website you are missing a crucial key component to your business. Today consumers want to be able to get a reassuring impression of your company before they make a phone call. That impression comes from your website. The first thing that a potential customer does after seeing your print add or look at your business card is go to your website for more details.
Websites are not as expensive as you may assume. A few hundred dollars can go along way especially if you compare it to some of the paper advertising rates you may pay.

There is no additional monthly fees from the design company unless you want constant updates, in which case a custom maintenance plan can be agreed upon.
