Creating a Website for Your Pressure Washing Business
One thing that many pressure washing business owners overlook is the importance of using a website to market their business. Most
undervalue the marketing power of a website or simply think it is too expensive to have one designed. The truth is a website will enable you to
reach far more customers for your pressure washing business than you normally would be able to without it. The reason being, oftentimes customers
will search for pressure washing businesses online, contact several different businesses and then ask them for a quote.

In order to get your website online you will need to go through a hosting company and a domain name. Hosting and domain purchases are
inexpensive, and are offered by services such as ipage and bluehost. These hosting companies also offer website builder services
making it easy for you to create your own website for your pressure washing business.
Another option is to hire a web designer, however, expect to pay around $500-$1000 depending on how many bells and whistles you want for
your site design. You will also have to pay for any updates you want to make to the site later on. In my opinion, it's better to learn how
to create a site on your own. If you are interested in learning how to create your own pressure washing business website without spending a
