Empty Cabin Media was started in 2009, on the soul premise of helping small business owners get on the web, and be successful. We recognize that getting small business online isn’t easy, often very technical, and very time consuming.
We started then offering many of the same services we offer today, Website creation, website maintenance and support, and miscellaneous website services (basically whatever you need done, we’ll do it).
While there are numerous web site design and build companies out there, both local and nationally, we’re different! Here’s why:
- We aren’t hobbiest, or self taught web-developers. We’re trained and experienced professionals
- We believe in the customer service models of days gone by, where we go above and beyond to make sure you are 100% satisfied (we even have a guarantee). We will go out of our way to make your experience with us, exceptional. Our diverse, talented, and experienced team is here for one purpose, to serve you.
- We’re not a large company, and as a result, offer very personal and interactive service. No waiting in a telephone queue for 30 minutes, only to get someone that is difficult to understand and not very helpful.
- Website design isn’t our strongest talent, so we use pre-built web templates as a basis for your site, and customize them, to make them unique and attractive for your business. This only helps us get your site up and running faster, but for far less money as well (custom web design is expensive!).
We believe that you get what you pay for, and we offer a great price/value/quality combination. Again, we are training and experienced professionals. We know what we’re doing, and we won’t let you down.
What “Empty Cabin Media”?
We often get asked, “Why did you name your company Empty Cabin Media?” Well, the answer is pretty simply really – At the end of our road is an old and unique looking cabin.
Since we live in the mountains of Western NC, we wanted a mountain/backwoods type of theme. So we decided to use the cabin as our inspiration, hence Empty Cabin Media and the cabin/forest themed logo.
