If you search online you'll find a plethora of services offering tools where you can build a website for a few dollars a month. We would even bet you have a teenage nephew who has the skills to build a website in minutes. So then, why would you hire a professional?
That's the big question. Firstly, think about the value of your time. Is it worth your time to learn to build a website using an online tool? Should you be learning to operate software that you will only need to use once? We think you should be running your business. You're the expert at your job and time that you spend not doing your job means you are not making money.
What about your nephew's web design skills? Sure, he probably has the technical knowhow. But does he understand marketing? Can he make sure that your website stands out from the crowd in a crowded Internet?
We have been building websites since the 90s and we know what it takes to get value out of your Website. Big or small, we can get you there.
So, you invested in a great looking website that tells your customers everything they need to know about your business. It's a wonderful marketing tool - full of details that should sell your product or service with ease. But... does it get any visitors?
In the competitive online environment you can't rely on people stumbling upon your website. You have to actively work at attracting visitors. The first, and usually least expensive, way to get new visitors to your website is organically, using Internet search engines like Google. But, to get any traffic from Google, they have to decide that your website is more relevant to visitors than all of your competitors.
That's where Search Engine Optimization (SEO) comes in. It's impossible for anyone to fully understand how a search engine decides which Websites deserve to be on the first page of their results. That's Google's trade secret. But, us professionals who have been doing SEO work since the inception of the Web, know many of the concepts and tricks that are necessary to optimize Websites for maximum exposure.
In many cases, simply setting out a game-plan and making a few changes to your website are all that you need to see an increase in visitors. If you already have someone managing your Website a short consultation with a SEO expert may be all you need to increase your site's ranking. And, if you are thinking of building a new site, we can help you get started on the right foot.
It's a simple fact that if your website uses older technologies that do not display properly on mobile devices, that you are losing visitors and customers. The statistics tell us that the vast majority of Web traffic is on smartphones and tablets and most of those visitors are making buying decisions.
In addition to the prospective customers that you lose because they are not willing to scroll and stretch your website in order to see it, you may also be giving the visitor the impression that you are not as progressive as you should be. And, if you are relying on search engine traffic, they are far less likely to list your desktop only website in their search results if the visitor is searching from a mobile device.
Today there are many simple website frameworks that are responsive allowing your website to display properly on any device. If you are happy with your Website's content but it doesn't look right on a smartphone, it's time to upgrade.
Have you Googled yourself lately? Go do it now - type your business name and your city name into the Google search engine.
