Why Us?Of course we strive to be friendlier, more flexible, and more supportive than any other provider. And we can usually get things done faster, for less money, than most of our competition. In special situations, we leap tall buildings in a single bound!
Two important areas where we can really help:
- Reduced Long Term Cost - Self-service saves money!
- Collaboration Tools (Multiple Site Editors) - Sharing the load on an active website
Long Term CostTo quote Groucho Marx on the cost of marriage..."It's not the purchase price, it's the upkeep".
Under traditional architecture and techniques, a typical site might cost $2000 or so to create, but that's not the end of the story. As your market and business change, and you offer new services to your clients, your site should adapt and grow with you. With most providers, you have to contact them to request updates, then wait for some unhappy period of time, then pay what seems to be an exorbitant rate. Maintenance for an active, well-maintained site can sometimes cost more than the purchase price each year.
But with 3 Step, when we turn your site over to you, we give you the keys to our maintenance system (the 3ngine - pronounced "engine"). Even without technical training, you can do 98% of normal day-to-day changes yourself, quickly and conveniently.
Or, if you prefer, we can post the updates for you and your cost will still be less, because the 3ngine makes it easier for us, too. (We wrote it for our own use, so we're pretty comfortable with it...).
Either way, you will save thousands of dollars with 3 Step.
