If you want a pretty website, you can get one. Bam! And it’ll make you happy every time you look at it.
But it won’t make your business more visible.
Your clients won’t be more likely to recommend you.
Profits won’t suddenly soar.
A clean design and modern font won’t lead to “business success”
And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Let’s say you ask me to design you a website. I could do that – no sweat. It would look gorgeous, be easy to navigate, and conform to all the relevant web standards. Google would ♥ it.
But a new website alone will achieve next to nothing if it doesn’t have a strategy behind it.
How will the right people find you?
What kind of messaging will speak to them?
How will you turn website visitors into customers?
A pretty website is part of a much bigger solution
Unless you’re a celebrity with crazy fans who’d buy used teabags from you if they could, you need a fully fledged web strategy – everything from branding and marketing to ensuring your site makes it easy for visitors to act.
Otherwise? Your site launch will be a bit of an anticlimax.
And that’s why, if you want to hire me as your web designer, I insist we work on the strategy too.
There’ll be tough, thought-provoking decisions to make, and plenty of hard work – but it’ll be worth it.
Want my help? You got it!
Warning: you’ll be expected to work WITH me on this. Not actually in the same room or anything, but in regular contact over email, Skype and online chat.
It doesn’t matter where in the world you live, but you’ll be involved in the process of getting to grips with your online business strategy. For my part, I promise to make the experience hugely fun!
By the time we finish working together, you’ll have both a pretty website AND adoring clients who are overjoyed to have found you.
