Launching a new business and need a start-up website? Not sure what direction you’re heading so you don’t want to invest a fortune. We understand. We’ve been there and 17 Designs has helped many entrepreneurs by creating a micro website (a.k.a. microsite).
Another case for a microsite is a short-term functional need. For example, each year your company offers a sales incentive bonus vacation and you need a microsite to post sales achievements. This microsite will only operate for one year. Charitable / fund raising campaigns, real estate developments (for a housing or condominium project), a property for sale – each of these would benefit from an inexpensive microsite.
It’s a Hobby Business / Stepping Stone / Just a Small Business
… and it doesn’t matter because not all businesses are large. In fact, many small businesses operate on a limited budget, have other priorities, or have no current need for a major website expense. We service all of these clients. This Microsites web page is always changing and some sites listed below remain under construction indefinitely as certain projects have no definite end. Other microsites are ready to grow and we are here to assist them when the time is right.
We can also help your new business with the following tailor-made services:
