Hello and welcome to our site.
LocalBizWebsites is a small business specializing in helping local businesses gain a dominant presence online through smart web marketing and social media optimization. We genuinely want our clients to succeed, so we offer a range of services via our colleagues and partners.
The business is owned by Trish Findlay, who looks after building the websites and installing content, both from the client’s information and from her pool of resources. She has many years experience in the technicalities like pointing your new domain to where it will be hosted, uploading the files to the host server, whether our own or somewhere else. There are always changes, maintenance and backups to schedule too.
Kathi Fowler is a Management Accountant and principal of The Bean Countess. She is a wizz at business plans, office and management systems and running an office “in the cloud” which means that an isolated location is no bar to a successful enterprise.
Kathi was the winner of the “Best Business Leader” category in the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce Awards 2011. She assists LocalBizWebsites.com.au with sales and website content.
We both have a team to call on for different and/or specialized tasks such as graphic design, e.g. making logos, business cards or customized web page graphics.
More than 80% of small businesses fail in their first two years. Don’t let your business be one on them; do proper planning, know who your target market is and know how & where you can reach them. There are very few products or services for whom the target market is everyone, so save yourself future heartache and identify before you start what sector to spend your time and money on.
Interact with potential customers; be where they are. Sadly, most local businesses leave it up to the customer to come back to their business, visit their website, ring or email or take any other action to find out about your services and products. You have to make it happen!
