With a fully managed website, you’ll have a unique hands off experience. We will maintain your website, your web hosting, your domain name and your professional email address.
We will monitor your website to make sure it stays up and running online. We’ll handle any technical issues or problems that you run into with your website. And, of course, we’ll design, build and setup everything you need to get your website up and running in a timely manner – all of this is included in one low monthly cost!
With the traditional web design process, you’ll usually give the web designer / developer your business info and files; pay a large deposit (sometimes up to 50% of the entire cost), and then pay the remaining costs.
On top of that you may have to pay additional fees if the project ends up going beyond the original scope of work. And you have to handle your domain name and web hosting yourself, unless you’re willing to pay more money on a monthly basis.
Every small business can benefit from a professionally designed website. But most small businesses and startups just don’t have the thousands of dollars it takes to afford a professional website built the right way.
Instead of paying the entire costs of your website upfront, Balloon Sites offers a simple pricing model – ‘Pay-as-you-grow’.
It’s like pay-as-you-go, except you start with a low fixed monthly price and, as your business grows over time, you can add more complex website features one-by-one for an additional low, always fixed cost.
When your website is completely up and running, you only pay for the first month of service at minimum, giving you the flexibility to free up your cash, and the freedom to focus on more important business tasks.
No complicated on-boarding process and no confusion!
The green pad lock in the browser ensures your visitors that your website is safe to use.
Your site is optimized to look great and load quickly on tablets and phones.
We won’t just build your site and leave. We will guide you after launch and work with you to continually improve on your site.
We know cash flow is important to you. Spread out your payments over time and add more features as you need them.
We make sure your site is optimized so customers will be able to find you in search locally and worldwide.
Perfect if you have a startup, a small business or a single product.

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 at (slightly higher than) DIY prices.
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.
