Like the rest of us, expectant parents and their support network are on the Internet learning about adoption. What you may not realize, however, is that they also use the Internet to find and learn about adopting parents like you. If you do not have an adoption website, then you are missing opportunities to more quickly connect with the right birth family.
If you lack the technical skills, time, or both, let us take care of this for you. Those template-based site builders you may find out there are OK, but they lack the necessary design flexibility and metadata that will get your adoption website noticed.
Ready to get started with our website development service?
Please note that the price for this service does not include the 2-year cost of your domain name and hosting plan. That combined cost is less than $199 and includes free website changes for the 2 year period.
Do you need help developing the content for your website?
If you need help putting together the best set of photos and complementary text for your website, add this Adoption Profile Coaching Service to the Website Development Service. You’ll also gain access to our eLearning course, The WHAT and HOW of Adoption Profiles, for free (a $99 value). This service does not include hard copy, printed profiles. If that’s what you need, check out our Profile Coaching & Graphic Design Service.
Our websites are responsive! This means your website layout and functionality automatically adjust based on your visitors’ screen size. The result is easy reading and navigation with minimal resizing, panning, and scrolling. Have you ever visited a website on your smartphone and had to pinch and slide all over the place? That won’t happen with your website!
In addition to providing a much more user-friendly experience for your website visitors, Google also favors mobile-friendly websites when displaying search results. This is incredibly important!
At no extra cost during the first year, we will change out photos and tweak your text whenever you ask (within reason, of course). We’ll also update the underlying software that makes your website work securely and bug-free, for as long as your website is active.
Other companies create adoption profile websites “underneath” their own website instead of creating a standalone site for you. For example, your website address may be something like yourname.businessname.com instead of yourname.com. Not only are those companies unlikely to get your profile in front of enough potential birth parents (these companies work with adopting parents, not expectant parents, after all), but this also results in ridiculously long website addresses.
We’ll also create an email address that matches your website address. You won’t need to create another Google or Yahoo! e-mail address if you prefer something like Info@SueAndMattAdopt.com or Family@RhondaToAdopt.com.
We’ll take care of the technical details to ensure that the major search engines know about your adoption website and can easily crawl it and understand it. We know Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for adoption better than anyone because we also run online advertising campaigns for adopting parents. This gives us visibility into exactly what potential birth parents are searching for when looking for adopting parents for their baby!
Your website development service includes weekly reports that show data about the number of visitors, the states from which they visited your site, how long they stayed on your site, how many pages they viewed, how they found your site (e.g., paid search, organic search, directly, or through Facebook or other referring websites), and much more.
To purchase a website address you need to provide your name, street address, and telephone number, but did you know that this information is available on the Internet for anyone to easily find? We make sure you protect your confidential information so you don’t inadvertently share more than you want to share.
You don’t want to put your adoption website on a small business owner’s server in a closet someplace. We’ll help you utilize a professional hosting service so your website is always available, loads quickly, and is secure. Website hosting is not included in this service and costs approximately $85 for your initial year (this also includes the cost for your domain name).
