With a fully managed website, you’ll have a unique hands off experience, giving you the flexibility to control your cash flow, and the freedom to focus on more important business tasks.
That means we’ll take care of your website, domain name and email hosting. We’ll 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 site. And, of course, we’ll design, build and setup everything you need to get your website up and running in a timely manner – all included in one low monthly cost.
You’re building your business. So we don’t want to cut into your cash flow because that’s an important factor in growing your business.
That’s why we offer a month to month subscription plan so you can make low, easy payments each month for your website, instead of a large lump sum fee up front.Making small payments over the long term is a better option because it gives you an almost immediate return on investment for your online business.
With smaller monthly payments, the money you invest into your website will begin to pay for itself much faster than if you paid the entire cost up front.
Even though your website is fully managed with us, you’ll still have the option to make small changes to your site. If you notice a misspelled word, need to update some information, or even if you need to upload a picture – you can easily make those changes on your own without the need to ask and wait for us to do it every time.
Your website is built on top of WordPress, a content management system that allows you to make quick changes, and to update your live website.
When you feel like you’ve outgrown Balloon Sites, or if you just want to call it quits for whatever reason, you can cancel at any time.
If you do decide it’s time to move on, we’ll help you move your domain name and all of your website files and content to your new web host for a low migration price of $399.
Just like we put you first as our customer, we make sure to design your website to cater to your customers’ or clients’ needs. We always design with a customer focused approach so that when people visit your website, they won’t leave because they had a bad experience.
This is what’s called conversion optimization.
We follow a proven process when we design your site that allows more of your online visitors to covert and become paying customers.
Based on your goals, we determine the most important action you need visitors to take so that you can reach those goals. What’s the one thing you want visitors to do once they get to your website? This could be “get a quote”, “call us”, “chat with us”, etc.
We design a layout that is optimized so that people who visit your site will be more likely to take that primary action.
Next, we include any secondary actions in the design to help lead visitors to, eventually, take the primary action you want them to take. Ultimately this will help you to reach your main goal.
Once we have decided on the primary and secondary actions, then we need to find out what real problems your ideal customers have and exactly how, what you have to sell, helps them to solve their problem.
After we identify the real problem, that will tell us what words and images we need to use to show people who are dealing with that problem, exactly how your product or service can help them directly.
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 follow proven steps to design a great user experience to increase visitor engagement and sales.
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 professional service or trade, a small shop, 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.
