Not necessarily. Our customers are located across the United States. With the Internet, email and telephone we are able to communicate effectively with you, regardless of your location. However, if you are close by, we will gladly meet with you at your business.
A domain name is where your customers will find you on the Internet. Like a physical address, a domain name is unique to your site. When someone wants to view your Web site they will type the domain name into the Internet browser to go to your site. An example of a domain name would be: www.your-company-website.com. You will also commonly see site domain names that end in .net and .org.
Web hosting is required for making your site available to people on the Internet. Your site will be uploaded to a hosting company’s servers, where it will be accessible to the Internet. The hosting company will also maintain the server computers that will be storing your site.
Many hosting companies charge either on a monthly or annual basis. Plans can range from as little as $6 a month for a smaller package to hundreds or even thousands of dollars for much bigger corporate packages. We will work with you to ensure you get the right hosting package for your site.
Goldstein Media has working relationships with a number of hosting providers. We will walk you through every step of the transfer process and help you get the best amount of space for the right price.
Currently, we do not have the server capacity to host your site. We will work with you to choose the right hosting company and the right hosting package for your site from our approved vendors list.
Like most things, sites need to be updated and checked regularly to make sure everything is running smoothly. Our maintenance packages enable your site to be constantly monitored and up-to-date. Plans start as low as $50 a month.

Search Engine Optimization
Yes. We have successfully helped many companies of all sizes get their sites ranked high in Google and Bing (the two major search engines).
It depends on a number of different factors. First of all it depends on the keywords you want to rank for. In order to determine the right keywords we need to do keyword research. This will allow us to see what your competition is ranking for and where we should concentrate our efforts. Second we need to determine how large of a campaign you want to target to start. There are a number of other deciding factors. Contact us and we’ll be happy to sit down with you and determine what is needed to get the best position in the rankings for your company.
Getting ranked in not an exact science. Sometimes, depending on the keywords and the competition, getting ranked high in the results will take a few months. Other times, getting ranked is much harder and can take up to a year. Our SEO contracts are set for a one year term. This enables us to get even the hardest sites ranked high in the search engines.
Social Media Marketing
The answer to this question is actually quite simple.
Social Media has grown exponentially over the last few years. Facebook alone is approaching 1 billion active users. That is almost 1/3 of the World’s population on one social network. Between the big 5 Social Networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and Linkedin) your customers are online talking about their experiences with not only your brand, but others. Without a Social Media strategy and presence your company is losing out out on millions, even billions of dollars and is missing out on key customer relationship opportunities.
Think of it this way. People are going to talk about your company with you in the conversation or not. Wouldn’t you rather be involved and know what is being said about you?
The first thing you need to do is contact us for a free consultation to discuss your needs and how Goldstein Media can help your company harness the power of Social Media.
