Website Simpler provides a suite of small business-friendly website design, graphic design, video production, and digital marketing services.

“As small business owners ourselves, we understand the need for affordable website design and digital marketing solutions,” said Sean Hakes, Founder of Website Simpler.

For as little as $1,295, small businesses can get a stunning new website that is designed to outperform the competition in major search engines like Google but also be an unmatched experience for potential customers and visitors alike.

“We’ve taken our 21+ years of experience in the business and simplified the process based on feedback we’ve received over the years. Our sites don’t take months to complete most customers can get into a new site in a week or less,” Hakes added.

Website Simpler has not only simplified the website design process, but they’ve also simplified marketing allowing customers to tap into search engine optimization, email marketing, geofencing, social media marketing, and other important digital marketing strategies for much less than a traditional agency or even freelancer.

“We want to make the process as easy for our customers as possible. This is one of the reasons we opened up a retail location in Pawleys Island.

Webmaster Cafe

Litchfield Collective is pleased to announce our first incubator project, Webmaster Cafe. Located inside Litchfield Collective at 14361 Ocean Hwy, Webmaster Cafe will cater to a growing need for digital media support services.

There are unlimited stores dedicated to helping repair computers, but what about a storefront that caters to business web needs such as broken websites, suspended social media pages, graphic design, Google maps, and more?

For months, we’ve met with local business owners frustrated there wasn’t a local shop where they could sit down with a real person and discuss their web-based challenges. That’s when Webmaster Cafe dreamt and was created.

Effectively, business owners can immediately walk into the Webmaster Cafe and get support to simplify the ever-changing landscape of web, social, digital marketing, design, and more.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to launch Webmaster Cafe,” said Sean Michal. “This is a new concept I’m certain will be a hit. Business owners are tired of speaking with overseas support teams and want real interaction, from a real person that can address and fix their digital media needs,” he added.

Webmaster Cafe will operate Mon-Fri from 8 AM to 9 PM. While walk-ins are welcome, call and set up an appointment by calling (843) 279-4558.

You can cancel your subscription anytime if you’re not satisfied. Often, the best part about a coworking space is that you can try it out for free and if you like it, you can continue to use it. However, if you aren’t satisfied, you can simply end your membership and move on.

Another major benefit of coworking spaces is flexibility. Most of them have flexible hours, which is important for creatives. Not only does this make it more comfortable, but it is also a good way to stay away from the rat race. While coworking spaces can be a great place to work, they are not always suitable for everyone. While they are beneficial for many business owners, they can hinder productivity. Therefore, a well-designed office should be designed to encourage creativity and collaboration among small businesses.
