Small businesses need websites that work. Sites developed with visitors and future prospect marketing in mind. I can help with that.
I am not a web design specialist. I am an SEO, Social Media and internet marketing specialist. I develop small business websites with internet marketing in mind. Fancy graphics, all singing all dancing animations and so on, aren’t going to help you win new business. Honestly? These have little to do with marketing.
My view is that web design comes down to what works for your prospects. Most of them will be looking for information. Smart web design is a platform for structuring a user-friendly experience. It should be easy to navigate and the look and feel should strike a chord with your customers’ personae.
I get lots of email enquiries about web site building. But a site is not enough. Your small business web site should be built on the back of your future marketing plans. Therefore it makes sense to be thinking about marketing when designing your site. Even if you’re not, I am. It’s also essential you can update your site without having to rely on the person who built the site! I see no point in having a fancy site if you’re essentially locked out of it or unable to access it on all devices. That’s simply unethical suppliers taking advantage of small businesses. It can prove to be a costly error as with little control over a site, some businesses choose to start over.
How I Can Help
I have extensive knowledge of marketing platforms including Google, Facebook and Twitter and how they work with websites. Part of my job is to think like your potential customers.
My approach is always to be honest and brainstorm design ideas with you. If you have a vision and want a web designer to do whatever you say and create your vision regardless of it’s success rate I’m not the person for you. If you would like advice on the best way to build a site or discuss me building one personally for you please get in touch.
Your website has to have an equal balance of what you want to achieve, what search engines like and most importantly, what your visitors want. A confusing website will make your visitors leave, it has to be easily navigational. Customers hate being confused.
