Why focus on your website?
Marketing Information $$$$$$$
By Bill Chambers
These days, everyone is online searching for information. They look up product information, compare companies and then make their decisions based on this research. Is your company being researched online? Are people checking out your services online or comparing your products to your competitors? If you answered no to either of these questions read on!
Do you run print advertisements or radio spots to bring in customers? Consider the costs involved. A typical 3 month radio spot can cost $5,000 to $10,000 and are only good during that time frame. Print advertisements are also very expensive and are only good for the lifespan of the publication and we all know what happens to those postcards and brochures you mail out. They end up in the trash! Websites are very cost effective when compared to traditional advertising. A website can cost anywhere from $500.00 to $5,000.00 based on your needs. They are easily updated and cost effective. Yearly fees are generally less than a few hundred dollars.
A website can be as simple as a brochure or as complicated as a complete online store. What you need to be competitive is where we come in! Lawton Networks, Inc. offers full service web design and development. From consultation to deployment, we will work with you to take your brand online.

Virtual Server “Whats that?”
Is Virtual Server Right Your Business?
A virtual server in a nut shell is the ability to have multiple individual server operating systems running on one physical hardware server. The days of a room full of servers are numbered for alot of business’s where it makes sense. Business’s that have multiple servers now, or are moving onto programs that will require their own server are thinking of ways to reduce cost and space. This makes virtual servers sound very attractive, and it can be. It is a very exciting technology as long as you understand the advantages and challenges you may run into.
Businesses cannot keep moving when they need space, same for server rooms. With Virtual servers as your business needs change you are able to install a single hardware source to operate multiple server guests inside it. Consideration for this technology can have its challenges also. With all the servers being in one hardware device you can run a risk of access to critical data if the hardware goes offline, which possibly would have been available in a traditional server environment. On the other hand, with the correct redundancy in place, a Virtual Server recovery is a much faster and has safety factors built in to reduce the return to full operation in much less time.
Ultimately it gets down to your needs and your budget as your business changes. This is why it is important to have the facts before moving forward in the changing server environment. Lawton Networks, Inc. will be there to step you through the options available to make your business network, work for you.
