Our Services &
Offerings: We offer a full range of website
services. We specialize in helping small businesses find
ways to make their Internet presence work better. We
provide fast affordable solutions for all your website
needs and we communicate.
WHAT MAKES THE WEB PAGE MECHANIC
DIFFERENT? OK, there are
about 50 million other people out there
offering website services.
Why The Web Page Mechanic?
What makes The Web Page Mechanic
different than anyone else?
WE ARE DIFFERENT THAN THE REST. We have
been providing website services to
clients all across the United States since commercial
websites (as we know them today) first
appeared on the Internet. We have seen
the changes evolve and learned along the
way what it takes to be successful and
we've learned what pitfalls to avoid. We know what can
be achieved with an Internet presence
and what can be expected from search engine
success. I do not know of any other
company offering faster or better
service or a quality of service that
equals ours for a price that comes
anywhere close to our rates.If there is one single thing that
really separates us from all our
competitors it's our "ANNUAL WEBSITE
MAINTENANCE" package. I don't know of
another company offering anything like
it and we provide it at no extra charge.
WHAT IS A WEBSITE MAINTENANCE
AND WHAT DOES IT COST?
First of all it doesn't cost you
anything. You get it with your website
design purchase. Very simply it's
website maintenance for the entire year.
In short, we not only create and post
your website on the Internet. We make
your basic changes and edits all year
long at no additional cost to you. This
package alone could save you hundreds of
dollars a year. Most people have a
website built and finished and done and
a month or so down the road they start
finding things on other websites that
they want to add. Things that they may
not have thought about on their original
design. Maybe they want to add a photo
of the interior of their business, a
Google Map to help customers find the
place, add some products for sale that
they did not carry when the website was
started and any of dozens and dozens of
other ideas that they would like to add
to their website.
DO OTHER WEBSITE
DESIGN COMPANIES OFFER FREE MAINTENANCE
not, and here's why.
There is really no money to be made
accommodating minor changes and edits
all year long. Most website designers charge
outrageous rates for such changes. The
problem is that they
have lots of employees including sales
people, operators, receptionists, the
actual designers and code writers,
janitors and that's just the start.
Beyond that they often have high
overhead, advertising and a lot of other
costs that have to come out of the profit
they make designing websites. That means
they have to spend much more time designing websites for big buck and
little or no time doing little fixes and
WE WORK OUT OF OUR
HOME AND HAVE ALMOST ZERO OVERHEAD
At the Web Page
Mechanic I work out of my home. There's
no additional overhead. I am the
salesman. I am the designer (my wife
helps on some of the designs). I am the
code writer. I am the janitor and
everything else. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? It
means very little or no overhead and a
lot lower price to you but more
importantly it means that I'm easier to
contact because I'm the only one you
ever talk to. There is nothing lost to
interpretation when a salesman tells
another staff member who then tells a
code writer who then asks the manager
who says "that cannot
be done" and nothing is lost or
misinterpreted because it went through
so many people. When you call, I answer
the phone and respond to your inquiries. When you
email us, I answer
the e-mail and I am the one who answers
your questions. My responses are quick
and reliable. There is never any time when you will
need to wait for 2 or 3 weeks for a
return phone call from a salesman who
either cannot answer your questions or
will likely not know the correct answers
or worse yet, make up what he thinks the
answers might be. But the best part of
all is that when you contact me for
changes to your website there are no
almost never additional charges for the
work you request. If your work requests
are substantial there may be additional
charges but in those rare occasions I
will always give you an EXACT price
quote on the spot and that will always be the
total cost. Over 90% of the change
requests I get are accomplished at no
additional cost to the customer.
We design new websites from scratch. You give us
the basic information and we take care of everything from there.
We include use of your existing logo or design of a new logo if
needed at no extra charge. Some people pay more for a logo alone
than we charge for a website design and like the logo we make
even better! We also include purchase of domain name (or use
your existing domain name), hosting for a full year, custom
navigation (those buttons that link to other pages in your
website), billboard animations, slide shows and a whole lot
more. There are so many aspects and possibilities to cover that
it's difficult to list everything we offer but it's very likely
that is you've seen something on another website, we can do it
and it's included in our basic price.
Package: Our most popular offering is our
annual website maintenance package. We will maintain your
website all year long for a one time annual fee. We make
all changes, corrections, edits, additions of new materials,
removal of dated items and postings of special events and sales.

all the necessary tweaks to help your website work the way it
We can remodel your existing website and make it look so good

everything and make it a very simple process for one very low

Vancouver, Washington. Since Dan MacNeil built our website
our phone order/take-out business and catering business has
more than doubled. He regularly makes changes to our menu
