Managed Web Design
If you’re not completely satisfied during the process while we’re building your website, we will refund 100% of your deposit with no obligation.
Get your website online fast! From idea, to design, to review; your website to go live in as little as 10 business days or less!
Long term commitment without the long-term commitment. A month-to-month payment plan gives you the option to cancel anytime without penalty.
With the traditional web design process, you’ll usually pay a large deposit (sometimes up to 50% of the entire cost), and then pay the remaining costs which could be between $2,000 to $5,000 for a standard website.
On top of that you may have to pay additional fees if the project ends up going beyond the original scope of work. Also, you’ll have to handle your domain name and web hosting yourself, unless you’re willing to pay more money on a monthly basis.
Today, every business needs a professionally designed website. Instead of paying the entire costs of your website upfront, we offer a simple pricing model – ‘Pay-as-you-grow‘.
It’s like ‘pay-as-you-go’, except you start with a lower fixed monthly price and, as your business grows over time, you can add more complex website features one-by-one for an additional cost.
When your website is up and running, you only pay the set-up fee, giving you the flexibility to free up your cash, and stretch out the total costs of the web design.
As a growing business you need more than just a pretty website. Your website should work like a hired assistant in the background of your business all day and night.
Marketing is all of your off-site channels like social media, word of mouth, community events and the like. Once you have a stream of people interested in your services, your website’s job is to convert them into paying customers.
Small businesses don’t always have the luxury of a dedicated sales team. That’s why you can’t afford not to have a website specifically designed to address all of your potential customer needs.

DIY website builders are good if you need a really simple, small site with only a limited amount of features; and if you have the time and the knowledge to build it yourself.
Balloon Sites bridges the gap by offering agency level professional design with a more flexible payment structure that allows your business room to grow.
Design agencies will build your site for you with more custom and complex functionalities if you’re at that stage. However, this comes at a much higher price.
We strive to make your online business a hands-off experience by designing and managing your website so you can focus on the things that matter – sales, revenue, customers, marketing, etc.
It’s our business to help you succeed over the lifetime of your online business.
We aren’t just building websites, we’re building an investment portfolio of small businesses. How well your business performs directly affects how well we perform as a business.
Not only do we design and build your site, we give you lifetime value by investing in your business over the long term, or short term – it’s really up to you.
Balloon Sites is for small business owners that don’t have an established online presence. This service is perfect for you if you’re a new business or even if you’ve been around for a while.
It’s never been more important to have a professional appearance online because that’s where your customers are looking for you!
Our mission is to help small businesses build and grow their businesses online at an affordable cost.
A website is made up of two major parts – the part you can see (the frontend), and part you can’t see (the backend).
When you look at a website, the text, photos, videos, audio, and even the layout and the colors are just files sitting in a folder somewhere on a computer (called a server).
Since you don’t own this computer, you’re renting the space to use this computer to hold all of your website files.
Fortunately for you, this cost is included in all of the plans we offer so feel free to check them out!
The setup fee is a one-time, flat fee to cover the initial costs associated with building out your website like registering your domain name, setting up web hosting, and the time spent building out your website.
With a typical website you have the design phase, which is choosing the layout and the overall theme (colors, fonts, styles, etc.) of the website.
Next, all of your content is added to pages within the website to fit that design.
Then, all of your contact forms, payment systems, account and general settings are set up.
Lastly, your website has to be thoroughly tested and checked to see if everything is working correctly.
The setup fee covers the some of these costs and your plan covers the rest!
If your website is not built on WordPress, we’ll need to rebuild you a new website. If you will be using your same website domain URL, we will need to transfer it away from your domain registrar to ours.
You can still reuse your same content from the old website.
So you would just choose one of the plans in order take advantage of the low upfront cost.
With our unique service you’re not locked into any contracts or long term commitments.
While we think you’d love this service too much to go, we know that sometimes things happen.
Cancelling your service is simple. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (803) 999-7483 to request to cancel your service.
Remember, canceling your service will immediately take your site offline, and it will disable all email accounts associated with this service.
Your domain name URL, your emails and all your website content still belong to you.
If you need help moving your website somewhere else, we offer migration services at an additional costs. Contact us to learn more.
