There’s an old saying…”If you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backwards”. And that’s especially true when it comes to your business’s online presence. You have to stay ahead of your competitors AND keep up with technology. You have to make it easy and enjoyable for consumers to become your customers.
You have your OFFLINE location all set up and working hard to bring the local customers/clients through your front door. That’s awesome, but you also NEED to establish your business’ presence ONLINE as well. You NEED to have a great website so consumers both local and world-wide, who are searching online for the products or services you offer, can find you. Just as your brick and mortar location is your business’ presence in the PHYSICAL world, your website is your business’ presence in the DIGITAL world!
Some businesses may do very well with a basic website that simply introduces the online world to your business. Others may need a more sophisticated, high-end website that serves a larger purpose, such as a storefront to sell your products online!
We will sit down with you and discuss exactly what you would like to accomplish with your website. We will explain all of the different options you have available, show you some websites we’ve created, and take a look at some of your competitor’s sites as well. We will discuss branding-related topics such as logos and color schemes. We will help you figure out the kind of website your business needs. Whether the best fit for you is basic, high-end, or something in between, we’ll create the website that works best for your online goals, and meets your business’ needs.
If you happen to have some extra time on your hands, you can create your own WIX website, and get something up on the web for “free”. Just remember to take into consideration your time (a pretty steep learning curve for most people), creativity, frustration level, and anxiety. You’ll be asking yourself a lot of different things like: “Does this look right?” and “Why does this picture look stretched?” and “Will my prospects find me online?” and “If I build it, will they come?”. Those are just some of the questions you’ll have! You will eventually find yourself repeating a few phrases like “Oh, the heck with it!” and “That’s good enough!” and “Wow, my head hurts!” and “I really need some sleep!”.
But it may work out for you, and more power to you if it does. After you experiment for a while, call us. For those on a limited budget, we will build your website for you and make sure it’s coded correctly, linked correctly, and submitted to the search engines correctly. Every page will provide proper SEO links and content to help you get traffic from qualified prospects. We will install a dashboard control panel so you can add content and interesting articles that can help rank you higher in Google searches. Or, if you like, we can do these services for you as well.
You get what you pay for. If you have a premier strategy for your market and niche, do not do a WIX website, or any other so-called free website. First of all, you don’t have the time to waste on it. You are a business owner, and that means you are dedicated to serving your patrons and clients. Do this the right way. Set a budget and shop for a company that has extensive knowledge of your market and can do the research to ensure you end up with a website that is masterfully created. Host your site on a dedicated server that has 24/7 telephone support.
Look, you are a business owner and an entrepreneur! Your time, energy, and efforts are much better spent developing and growing your business…not trying to figure out how to build a website!
So stop struggling trying to do everything yourself, and relax. There is a reason we are here…We provide the services your business needs, relieving you of the worry of having to do it yourself! And for the few dollars you budget to have a QUALITY website created, you will reap infinitely better rewards.
