From time to time you need a website fast. This article is about a local business that needed an Auction website built. By Auction website I mean a website for a business that wanted to let people know about an auction they were having. In this case it was a closing down sale. They come to us on a Friday we had them up and running before Monday.
The website is a very basic site but it had one use. It had to collect email addresses for potential Auction attendees. So that the Auctioneer could keep them up to date with the status of the auction. In this case the small business did not have a website or name. They had an Idea on what they wanted to do but no Idea on how to implement in the Time frame they had. We had a quick sit down interview , but this could be done by phone.
Results of our Auction Website Customer Interview.
After our initial meeting we narrowed down the exact things this customer wanted. We ran over some ideas to settle on a Domain name and then implemented the strategy. Here’s what we would do if you wanted a website for an auction or closing down sale. In this particular case the customer was quiet internet savy so he did some of the work himself. We built and uploaded the website made a logo, helped him with choosing a business name and created an advertising clip.
These steps are for those that don’t already have a website. To use as a template for their own closing down sale.
- Customer interview.
- Register Domain
- Create Mail Chimp Account to collect emails.
- Add Form to website
- We make Website Live

We offer a full and fast service, that we guarantee will get you live in 3 days. The cost of an Auction website will depend on what function and design you need. in this case the website only had a basic design that was targeted to let people know the date and take their email addresses.
