Professional Website Design by Frank Jones
Having online visibility is important. Beginning with your website, it’s vital to position yourself online with a strong, professional destination that gives customers the impression you mean business and the motivation to want to engage more with your business.
In regards to a lead capture page system (and subsequent follow-up messages), they most definitely have their place in the grand scheme of things, but a lead capture page can’t replace (or be a substitute for) a website.
Without a website, you’re missing out on opportunities for customers to identify who you are and if they want to spend money with you.
I can help you build a polished looking website (and lead capture page system) that functions easily and offers customers easy navigation, strong photo images, professional quality content and an overall experience that engages them enough for them to want to do business with you.
What about website traffic?
As far as building traffic the right way, the first step would be to optimize your website, which I would do as I build it. From there, there’s many things we can do to drive traffic to your website and help it rank higher in search results, but I won’t go into those details now as obviously, your budget will also dictate how far we take it.
Why Don’t Have a Business Website Yet?
I must admit being surprised that in this day and age a small business owner (and even affiliate marketers) would consider a website not relevant.
Even if someone gives your business a personal referral, the first thing a lot of people do is go visit a website!
- You want to look current, not out of date.
- A website provides the opportunity to say who you are and what you’re about.
There is no such thing as a business that is too small to establish an online presence anymore, especially with an estimated 85 percent of consumers using the Internet to find local businesses and some 81 percent of shoppers conducting online research before making a purchase.
Today, a website has to be part of your business plan.
It DOESN’T need to be fancy, expensive, complicated, or even mobile friendly … but it NEEDS to be there.
Any company that does not have a website should seriously consider developing one — even the simplest, low cost, one or two-page website — in order to have a greater online presence. Besides, chances are your competitors already have some sort of online presence… and if they don’t, now you’re one step ahead of them!
I realize that as a small business owner, you have your hands involved in many different areas of the business and web design is often a daunting task for any small business owner. Perhaps outsourcing the work to a professional web designer (and marketer) may be the most effective solution to get your website up and running?
I can offer you a complete turnkey solution.
More and more consumers will rely on websites and other online functions to make purchasing decisions. Even if your product or service cannot be sold online, it is important to establish a presence online — even if you only list your address, a phone number and some basic information — to engage current and potential customers.
If you’re not doing this as a small business owner, you will only fall behind your competition. Avoid becoming a statistic of defunct companies, building a website is a good start.
Here’s a small sample of some my website design work
Designed with passion and coded to perfection, I create and design every client’s website as if it was my own and always over deliver, no matter the size of their budget. Even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a website, you’ll get a lot of value for the money. Always.
No Website Means Losing Business
By now it’s clear that if you don’t have a website, you’re missing out on opportunities for customers to identify who you are and if they want to spend money with you. This said, if you have a bad website it is better to have no website. While no website equals missed opportunities, a bad website can actually be worse since it literally makes your business look bad. If you can’t proudly promote the website you have currently live and available for the world to see online, take it down. A bad website is far worse than no website – but let’s be clear… both are bad for business.
Whether you are a one man or woman show or operate with 100 employees, your website should appear as if you have a team dedicated exclusively to keeping your online presence strong and noteworthy. The key here is “appear” versus actually having someone updating your website everyday.
For most small businesses and affiliate marketers, this is simply not necessary.
However, having a professional, polished looking website that functions easily and offers customers easy navigation, strong photo images, professional quality content and an overall experience that engages them enough for them to want to do business with you is key.
The bottom line
There is no such thing as a business that is too small to establish an online presence anymore, especially with an estimated 85 percent of consumers using the Internet to find businesses and some 81 percent of shoppers conducting online research before making a purchase.
