But we also know that writing professional articles requires proper research, a good pensmanship and basic knowledge of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to make sure your articles are being read.
With our blog posts we always promise to be accurate in the cases of non-fiction articles and conduct proper research. We also comply with the industry standard of at least 500 words, add relevant images, author bio, etc.

This doesn't include an E-Commerce cart integration.
This module allows you to take credit card payments or donations based on outstanding invoices or charity. This is especially ideal for a local service provider such as physical therapists, mechanics, not-for-profit organizations such as churches and contractors.
Because often the cost varies based on the service provided, but will allow you to collect payments online. We can also help you integrate with bluetooth or wireless Point-of-Sale (POS) solutions such as Square.
The online donations are not only for churches but also charities and crowdfunding projects such as videogames or new innovations. If you are not happy with a solution such as indiegogo or kickstarter - why not just have it happen on your own website?
This module includes 1 payment gateway of your choice (Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.net, etc.) - we will just need your login details or have you provide us with the API of your desired service. Alternatively we can set everything up for you.
With the E-Commerce or Online Shopping Cart we will also create up to 10 products for you that will have professionally edited descriptions and integrations with whichever modules you want us to - i.e. Google Shopping.
We also provide 1 custom product template, or if you want the choice for multiple templates we can provide you with those for a small additional fee.
We can integrate shipping, but this custom module only includes free shipping (which can be over a certain minimum order) or a flat-rate fee. If you want accurate live quotes from FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, etc. then you should also look into our shipping integration module.
For your information, we are also integration specialists when it comes to XPSShip and similar services.
With the main E-Commerce integration you get up to 10 professionally created products. But if you have more than 10, we can offer you for a small extra fee additional products up to a total of 50 products at a time.
The price listed is per additional product.
Some E-Commerce stores might be good with just free shipping, flat rate shipping or perhaps downloads.
But in a competitive environment like online shopping you might need more accurate shipping quotes or different services such as expedited shipping. And to make sure you don't lose your shirt, you need accurate cost.
If that is the case for you - then this is the integration you are looking for. We can include live quotes based on your FedEx, UPS, DHL or even USPS account. Or help you even set one up in case you don't.
We are also XPSShip integration specialists, if you are interested in an all-in-one solution.
The price listed is per shipping service that you want included.
A lot of Online Stores use WooCommerce as a WordPress Shopping Integration. And so you might want to make sure your site stands out from all the others. Or perhaps you want to switch colors around, add features such as shipping insurance or other custom checkout add-ons like gift wrapping.
Well in that case - you should look into our customized checkout module. We can do anything from forcing billing and shipping to be the same. Change the colors, highlight certain fields, remove, change or add new fields.
Perhaps instead of just a checkbox you want the terms & conditions to pop-up. Perhaps you would like to let your customer know that you don't take American Express or even a special thank you page instead of the typical template. Coupons for their next order can also be easily added into their order confirmation, as a pop-up or otherwise.
There are hundreds of ways to customize the checkout experience. Especially if you like the checkout process from a competitor or popular store like Amazon, eBay and Walmart - we can make sure that your process feels the same.
No website by default has review solutions that for example show up in form of stars on google or bing. But we can make sure that you get a service and integrate it which will.
Be it TrustPilot, ResellerRatings or any other platform / service that will meet your parameters - we can make sure that people will be able to find reviews about you and make sure that you are a legitimate online seller.
The other reason why you should look into a third party integration is because while you can offer reviews without any solution on your site - how does your customer not suspect that you might have fake reviews up, or simply copy-pasted from Amazon and other sellers?
Provide trust into your brand and services to maximize your profits.
The price provided is per month and assuming that we setup your review integration solution and manage it from start to finish.
Everyone can register a GMail, Hotmail or Yahoo e-mail address. But only you can have one with your domain name in the address.
Make your sent e-mails more trusting by having your domain name included. Especially for e-mail blasts and quotes it raises the trust into you, your service / product and brand - thereby, making it less likely your e-mail to get straight out caught by a spam filter or deleted by the recipient.
The price listed is per e-mail you want.
Quotes & Invoices go hand in hand and allow you to send customized cost per line item to any customer. A quote is of course pre-sale while an invoice should be submitted either after providing the payment for the provided product / service. You will be able to also show partial payments on an invoice, in case you have payment plans for your customer.
Other features include to choose from multiple templates, include your logo, download as PDF, print right from the interface and much more. It is yet another tool to not only help you manage your business and sales, but make you look more professional.
The listed price is for the basic package, premium features and designs might require a higher fee.
Search Engines such as Google and Bing are scanning websites with automated protocols, there is no human analyst involved and that is why it's important to optimize your website for these protocols. Especially since these protocols have an estimated 2 major updates in a year. These can range from anything of all images requiring to be a minimum size for the google shopping feed, over new ways meta information has to be provided or to remove all watermarks from your website.
Many of these updates give you only 1-3 months to make the changes prior to going in effect. And to stay on top of that while maintaining the other aspects of your business can become a headache quickly. So let us help you to comply with the guidelines of the search engines to ensure your website can be found and is more likely to be on page 1 of these search websites.
One other thing we would like to educate about are these 'guaranteed first page on google/bing' emails you might be getting. Don't trust them, because there is no way anyone can guarantee you to be on page 1 as there are literally dozens of variables that calculate on which page you show up. We have years and years of experience getting websites higher rankings - but we will never promise something that we cannot guarantee, unlike service providers outside of the United States.
E-Courses or also known as Online Courses grow more and more in popularity. Sure there are established services such as Coursera, Lynda and Udemy - but you are hosting your valuable lessons on their sites. Why not take full control and only pay once to host your own e-learning classes the way you want to?
We have many solutions for your needs to make sure you get the online teaching platform you want. We can do anything from membership plans that are billed monthly or annual to affiliate programs. Free intro classes. Downloadable certifications, grading systems, achievements that students can gain as they go through your class and so much more.
And the best thing is that once we are done setting up your course, you can make changes and additions based on our template on your own accord.
The pricing listed is per individual course, as each is completely individually built to your desire. We will build the online course based on your material. If you want us to create the online course for you based on your idea, we will require a rough outline and it will cost around $250-500 extra, depending on how extensive you want the course to be.
Achievements help your students to stay motivated and give them a boost of accomplishment when they reach milestones within a course. It also validates their hard work and they may brag about reaching said milestone on social media which in return might give you potential new students.
The certification of someone who completed a course is as important as the course itself. How else can they prove their new learned skills and knowledge? With this solution of ours you can implement professional certifications that your students that completed the course successfully can download for their records.
The price listed is for both the achievements and the certifications.
Customers hate being on hold on the phone lines. The same counts for having to wait forever to get a reply through an e-mail sent to customer service. So companies started to utilize the power of live chat. You get the responsiveness of phone calls combined with the written responses of an e-mail.
On top of that our live chat solutions make it easy for representatives to help customers and clients with pre-saved macros, a list of online customers, the ability to save chats, have ended chats automatically send a copy to the customer and even the options to either not display the live chat when all representatives are offline, or to show that nobody is currently available but to leave a message - which will send an e-mail to the support team for the company's earliest convenience to reply to.
We can integrate third party services very easily in case you know a live chat service you would like to use already, or we can suggest you one that will fit your needs.
The price listed is assuming us choosing and integrating a free live chat service on your website.
Tickets are a more efficient and flexible way to stay on top of customer support than e-mails. Not to forget much safer, too! Support tickets have all the advantages of an e-mail, plus they are contained on the website accounts which are far more secure and reduce the risk of malware and spam that one might have to deal with from e-mails.
Additional to that, you can easily track the status of every individual customer and their issue. With colored status labels you can identify whether a customer is waiting on a reply, if a representative is waiting on the customer or the issue has been resolved. On top of that you can have internal notes that the customer cannot see - no more sticky notes on a desk that can be lost. And for supervisors or managers this system allows easy quality control, as well!
A forum is only as good as it's moderators and hosts. However, you can use this to build your own community and keep full control over it. We especially recommend it if you run an e-learning platform and split it into two areas. One for pre-sale potential students to ask questions about billing, the courses, etc. And one for participating students to make learning groups or simply discuss the course itself.
But the forum module also has use for niche industries for customers to discuss product lines, pros and cons or even just a way to troubleshoot their products or the use of your website. We would set the forum up for you whichever way you want and also leave you with admin and moderator rights along with anti-spam measurements in place to make sure that you can focus on your visitors conversations and not fighting spam posts.
One of the most effective ways to retain customers, readers and visitors is with a Newsletter program. Even if you don't have an e-commerce platform, there are ways to use newsletters to maximize your visitors and market share.
Be it to let your readers now that you posted a new article, to update your students that a course got updated, run surveys or perhaps that you have a sale going on for your services. You can collect the e-mail when a customer checks out, perhaps offer a sign-up form right in your sidebar or footer or have them added to your e-mailing list when they send you a message through a contact form.
Depending on your needs and intended third-party service to utilize we can offer different services, including to migrate from one service to another. Be it MailChimp, Constant Contact, Get Response or any other service.
The price listed includes 1 newsletter integration and 1 sign-up form.
Websites are gaining more and more international views and although it can seem overwhelming to offer multiple languages, it is actually quite easy with the tools available today. And the great thing is that once the tool is setup, you do not have to worry about translating new content as it automatically translates your content for you.
But it still is a hassle of finding the right working tool that is not turning everything into gibberish and while no tool in the world can promise a 100% accuracy unless you hand translate, there are definitely automated translation services which will get the point across and make your site accessible enough for visitors that do not speak or read your language to know what you offer and navigate your site.
The price listed includes automatic translation into 1 language.
Do you wish your website to have a functionality not listed here? Then feel free to let us know about it and we will see if we can do it and what your exact cost will be. But we are never afraid to face new challenges, after all we are PBC Online Solutions and to find yours is our objective.
The price listed is an estimated starting price for your custom solution.
