You know you need a website, but maybe you’re not sure where to start.
- Can I do it myself?
- Who do I trust?
- How much should I spend?
No matter what kind of business you’re in, a good website begins with thoughtful planning. First, you need to determine what the primary purpose of your site will be. This will help you decide if you should invest in professional web design services. Find a designer you trust by asking your friends, talking to different designers, reading testimonials, and taking advantage of a free consultation.
Let’s get back to the purpose of your website. Will your new site support an existing business, or is it going to be for a new business? Do you want to drive more customers to your physical location? Receive more phone calls? Sell more online?
When you know what you expect to get out of your new website, you can focus on how much to spend. Think of this in terms of the return on your investment (ROI). How much income do you expect to generate from your website? How long will it take to recover your investment? When compared to traditional marketing such as radio advertising or print media, a professional website is often one of the best investments you can make. Sometimes a little more money up front will bring a much larger return in the end.
You probably hear ads every day about how easy it is to build your own website. Many systems are available to help you build a website yourself, but they also have limitations. Generally, the more a system does for you, the less control you have over how it’s done. We can help you select a solution that balances your needs with your budget.
