Alice's WebStart helps you create your own simple website for:

Alice's WebStart is for people who want to create their own websites but who need some help with concepts, design, technologies, and process. We do whatever it takes to get you from thinking about building a website to actually building the site. Our specialty is providing you with the kind of individualized help you need in a time frame that suits you at a cost you can afford. If you need some additional computer or Internet skills or knowledge, our PC Jumpstart program can help you with that.

In addition to making sure the work gets done, we help you make informed decisions about:

Steps

  1. First of all, you call Alice at (508) 481-9094 to discuss your situation in a free phone consulting session.
  2. If it sounds like our service is a good match to your needs, wants, and background, we will schedule an initial WebConsult session (usually one to two hours). The session can be at any location convenient to you. In that session, we will decide together if a WebStart is really suited for you and what prerequisites might be needed. If our WebStart service is not suitable for you, we can probably recommend other services or ways to proceed.
  3. If you want to proceed with doing the work yourself, we'd schedule WebStart sessions as needed and work out some cost estimates. We might assign "homework" to help you strengthen your understanding and skills. We will work with your time schedule, with your resources and budget, and in a style that suits your individual needs.

For a WebStart to be effective, you should be comfortable with using a computer. You should also be familiar with using a web browser and with searching for things on the web.

Read "What can you expect from a WebStart?" for further information.

Payment

Payment for a WebStart is by the hour.

We offer a money-back guarantee for our WebStart service. That is, if any WebStart session does not meet with your expectations, you do not pay for that session. Understandably, if you are not satisfied, we will not schedule any further sessions. Your payment is evidence of your satisfaction.

Phone consulting (not guaranteed) can be arranged on an "as needed basis" once we have established a good working relationship.

Style

Our work style is informal and cooperative. We enjoy being partners with our clients in helping them achieve realistic goals. We help our WebStart clients learn by doing their own work. WebStart is a combination of tutorial and project management, with some technical support. WebStart projects can be great fun for our clients and for us. Our WebStarts work best if the project is not "mission-critical" so you can concentrate on acquiring knowledge that you want.

Our success is in transforming our clients into knowledgeable web site owners who have the foundation for expanding their website as their enterprises demand and their resources allow. We can get you going and then teach you or your assistants to maintain and enhance the web once it is initially published. You might also use your knowledge to make wise and realistic decisions about hiring a web developer or helping others contribute to your web.

We also consider it a success to help people discover that they don't want to do the work themselves or even that they really do not want a website after all.

Read "How to do your own web site or choose someone else to do it" - an essay on choosing a web advisor to help you get started (from Women Unlimited magazine, April 1998).
