Seller’s Bay has reasonably priced websites that are good for small businesses. Here’s a few reasons why Kirbyworks websites are better:
- Kirbyworks websites use Responsive Design. That means every part of the website will work on any size viewing device, whether it is a computer, tablet PC, or smart phone. Seller’s Bay advertises their photo gallery as being iPhone compatible but what about the rest of your website and what about other devices? If it’s not responsive design your whole website won’t show up correctly and it won’t work on all devices.
- Kirbyworks guarantees Google page 1 for your website, for at least one of the top 5 searched for terms used by people looking for a business like yours. Seller’s Bay offers no SEO services or guarantees with their more economical offerings.
- Kirbyworks offers the WordPress Content Management System. Seller’s Bay uses Joomla!, which is a great platform, but WordPress is the world’s leader in Content Management Systems and offers more plug-ins and you will have a better chance of finding someone locally to work on your site in the future. 55% of the one million most visited websites that run on a CMS run on WordPress, and 18% of all websites run on WordPress. WordPress is being used by more websites than the next 20 most popular CMS’s COMBINED, more than 6 times more than Joomla!. Additionally, WordPress started as a simple blogging platform and is still considered more user friendly than either Joomla! or Drupal which were designed for developers, not the general public.
- Kirbyworks uses Premium WordPress themes which are gorgeous, highly functional, feature rich, and save the designer many man-hours in building a custom website who is then able to offer a high quality website at a great price point.

- Kirbyworks websites are better looking. I know that’s a matter of taste but Premium WordPress Themes are developed by world-class artisans and have better looking typography, color coordination, and overall appeal. Just compare the 60 responsive themes in live demo mode here with the Seller’s Bay portfolio here.
- Kirbyworks websites come with profile set-up on three Social Media websites, whichever makes sense for your business between (but not limited to): Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, Pinterest, etc. Seller’s Bay does not offer any.
- With Seller’s Bay you are given the customary 5 pages: home, about, services, FAQ, and testimonials page. With Kirbworks you are only limited to what makes sense for your business, such as a separate page for each of your service categories, which makes for better Search Engine Optimization. Beyond that, you are given the tools to add as many pages as you want in as many categories or sub-categories as you need and several different page styles to choose from. Adding a page is as easy as adding a blog post, which on this website, for example, the page you are reading now is just another one of hundreds of blog posts. I’m adding pages every day by way of posting on my blog. Eventually I will have a website with thousands of pages, not just 5. That provides lots of content for Google to find and put in front of people using their search engine to find what I have to offer. You can do the same with your website.
- With Kirbyworks you get QR (Quick Response) codes generated and tied in with your website landing page which is a stripped-down, to-the-point page for driving traffic to your site. You can change the contents of your landing page to reflect your current promotional offer.
Seller’s Bay and Kirbyworks offers very similar products and services at similar costs to you, which, by the way, are the most competitive you’ll find anywhere, but Kirbyworks offers a superior package and better value for your money.
