Impressive Impact Domains is a subsidiary of Impressive Impact, LLC., and is a micro site focused on domain name registration, website development, and website marketing for small business entrepreneurs in the LGBT Community.
Impressive Impact Domains is a micro site, a subset of our more full feature corporate website www.impressiveimpact.com. IID was specifically designed to help simplify the website development process for our clients and website visitors.  Instead of

being bombarded with extraneous menus and content not directly related to the primary task at hand, our customers can better engage with our core product and services being domain name registration, website development, website hosting, website marketing, website monitoring and account administration. In other words, ‘less is sometimes more’, we didn’t want to overwhelm our clients with all that we’ve got if their focus at the time was to build or maintain their website.

Our IID micro site is tailored to building, marketing, and maintaining a professional website. We created a main navigational menu that establishes a step-by-step approach to help walk our customers through the processes required in successfully launching a website. Moreover, by removing content not directly related to the primary task at hand,
we hope to keep our customers from becoming frustrated and thus abandoning their efforts at building a website.

Our corporate website boast much more content related to our in-house team of designers such as our interactive portfolio that showcases our projects spanning all of our services such as Corporate Identity Packages, Motion Graphics, Website Design, and more.

Simply put… we know what we’re doing and your business will benefit from it. We are highly educated and experienced professionals in a concentrated scope of skill-sets often required to be a success, long-term, in website production. We not only have the creative expertise, but the technical  and marketing expertise as well.

Our support staff is ready to assist you 24/7 if need be and our data center provides 99% website up-time with full backups of your data.

All that is required is a basic knowledge of word processing and internet skills such as how to upload photos, input and edit text. What really stops people is not understanding all the pieces-parts required to make a website operational. Therefore, they get half way through the process and hit some areas that are foreign to them, they begin to think they don’t know enough to be successful in this endeavor and thus abandon the process.
Our website builder process spells it out for you ‘the least you should know’ and isolates each piece of the puzzle as it’s own, digestible task. If you have the patience to do some reading and apply our techniques and suggestions then you can be a success. Each step-by-step process allows you to save your work so you can work on it over time.

One of the things we provide that will help you the most is BEFORE YOU GET STARTED, we let you know what items and content to have ready and approximately how long it will take to complete that portion of the overall task. Ever started taking an online survey and wondered how many pages do I have to commit to before this thing is finished? Can I save my work or do I have to start over? Ever gone to get a Driver’s License or Passport and not been made aware of all the required documents to complete the process only to have to take another day off work, to come back and stand in line all over again?

We’ve got your back!

The most common website configurations for both small and medium sized businesses have the same types of recurring operating expenses. Most expenses are incurred monthly with the option to purchase a year in advance with substantial discounts. Here are some of the more common recurring fees to be aware of:
  • monthly web hosting server fees: aprox. $5-$20/month
  • domain name renewal fees: aprox. $7-10/year
  • ecommerce shopping cart renewal fees: $5-10/month
  • online marketing via vendors like Facebook Marketing or Google Advwords $20-$50+/month
With the advent of much improved internet technology, it is quite possible for the average person with novice computer skills to be able to build an effective, entry-level website on their own with the online tools we provide having little or no experience. Most entry-level small business websites range from 5-20 pages of online information consisting of text, images,blogs, video clips, photo galleries, portfolios, and contact forms. We recommend planning out the pages for your website on paper first. Then, gather the images and content needed for each page and upload it. From there, massage the look and feel of the page layout and color scheme. Test your website and have others proof read your content and provide you feedback as to the flow of operations. Make any adjustments necessary and begin marketing your website by submitting it to search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
Having said that, if you have a serious business endeavor we recommend that you hire professionals like our in-house designers to help you make the most out of your business investment.
Many people just need to just GET IN THE GAME and build a website in a weekend using our Website Builder. Once your entry-level website has become moderately successful and more demands are being requested for additional functionality, then it’s time to upgrade your website to a more robust platform capable of providing goods and services more efficiently and effectively while being able to scale for future growth. We recommend when that time comes that you, the small business entrepreneur, focus on what it is you know and do best concerning your business and let us be your ‘go to’ consultants for all things concerning your website, social media campaigns, and online marketing initiatives.

CMS stands for ‘Content Management System.’ Basically, it is a database that stores the content of your website and provides a easy to use front end interface to make updates with rather than having to edit each webpage by hand and upload it via FTP Client software. Some of the most popular Content Management Systems are WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. WordPress is widely used and well received and evolved from its primary purpose which was to provide a blog platform that anyone could use. WordPress is great for small websites and is easier to learn and maintain than Joomla and Drupal. Joomla is the next step up when needing more features and scalability than WordPress can provide. Joomla is a little bit more robust and has somewhat of a steeper learning curve. Although beginners can typically achieve success with Joomla it isn’t typically recommend to novice computer users. Drupal is the most flexible and robust of the three CMS described here. Drupal is for advanced users that have database and SQL experience because the structure of the CMS engine provides the greatest ability for customization. Large businesses often use Drupal for an entry-level CMS and it typically requires full-time webmasters to maintain it.
