Is Your Website Working Hard For You?
What is Web Design?
Everything about your website is your web design, the content, visually how the website looks and the way it works is determined by the web design. Web Design is a process of concept, planning and putting together a layout that is going to serve your intentions for how you want the website to look and convey your business’s messaging. The colors, text and images should all represent and respect your branding and work together to promote your business. Proper Web Design helps your company appear credible online and gives you the opportunity to stand out from your competitors. As a Baltimore Web Design company we make sure we understand your business on an individual basis and what website design will serve your business the best and within your web design budget.
What are the Benefits of a Good Web Design?
STRONG FIRST IMPRESSION
There are many benefits to web design when it is properly performed. A quality web design gives you a chance to make a strong first impression, and in many cases is the very first impression people get of your business. An unprofessional website could leave the visitors thinking that your business is outdated, employees don’t take pride in the business or may possibly be closing soon. Think of the time you spend at your actual business making sure you are making a good impression for your customers, your website should be no different. Be very careful not to neglect the face of your business online by discounting the importance of a quality web design.
BETTER SEARCH ENGINE RANKING
Search Engine Optimization, more commonly known as SEO, is one of the biggest terms thrown around today when talking about a website. Search Engine Optimization is simply optimizing your website in order to rank better with the search engines, sounds simple but it is far from being simple. The organic structure of your website needs to be properly optimized to make sure that the search engines are able to see the key terms that you are trying to have noticed. When people are searching for these terms that suit their needs if your website is coded correctly and is providing the terms in the way that the search engines want to see them you stand a much better chance of ranking better and getting your business found online. Our web design process ensures organic seo best practices are implemented to help your business get found online.
GAINING AN ADVANTAGE IN YOUR MARKET
A well designed website allows your business to compete stronger in your market, even if you are competing against a much larger competitor. Think of it as you now have the opportunity to level the playing field online. If you have a five person plumbing business and you are next door to the largest plumbing company in town with eighty employees people driving by can see the obvious difference in the two locations and may be attracted to the larger outfit thinking they must be that big because they are good. A website gives you the chance to stand toe to toe with your competitor and appear just as good or better than the larger competitor. This is a huge opportunity to increase your market share if you have a properly designed website. Good web design is more than just a pretty face, it is built with purpose.
USING YOUR WEBSITE AS A TOOL
A website is a great tool to have for your business. You can direct customers to your website for additional details about your business, the services or products you offer and even have them print forms to fill out before their appointment if that applies to your business. You can have forms on your website that will send the message to your email, you can direct people seeking jobs to your website for an application, you can have videos on your website to use for customer education and retention and so much more.
What is included with the Web Design?
Everyone of our websites have a responsive layout, without exception . This feature is so very important, not only for the SEO Value that it gives your website but the viewing experience it gives your customers. The content in a responsive website will reconfigure itself to fit the device that is being used to view it. A responsive web design will be able to be viewed on any size monitor, tablets and mobile devices.
Having a mobile friendly website is so very important, it gives people on the go the information about your business. In the first quarter of 2015 Google announced that when people use their mobile devices to search for something if the a website is not mobile friendly it would rank it at the bottom, this is devastating for website that are not mobile friendly. Our websites have been mobile friendly long before then because we have always believed in providing a good experience for people on the go, and people are using their mobile devices more and more. This feature is built into out framework, it is not an add on or a patch, nor is it a separate mobile website like many other places. When it comes to web design it is mobile friendly or bust.
ORGANIC SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Organic SEO, also known as onsite SEO, is included in every website we design. This increases the likelihood of your website being found online, we incorporate proper Organic SEO best practices in our web design. Surprisingly most websites we see do not have proper Organic SEO and suffer as a result. Organic SEO is where we go in and properly setup your website with the phrases people are searching for and do it in a way that the search engines want to see. This has to be done the right way, no short cuts or games should be played here in an attempt to cheat the system to achieve better ranks because Google can penalize and black list your website if it determines that this is being done. Setting this up the right way gives your website much healthier and stronger growth with the search engines.
QUALITY STOCK IMAGES
The visuals of your website are so very important, quality stock images need to be used to get the viewers attention so they will want to stick around and explore your website. The images we use are free of any copyright issues protecting your business from being contacted for any copyright infringements. This is actually a big deal, many web design companies grab images from the internet and use them for business websites and then later on the business gets contacted informing them they owe hundreds of dollars for the use of the image, this amount typically starts around six hundred dollars and goes up from there.
What sets Our Web Design apart from the others?
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
So many things go undone on business websites simply because people can’t see them, like SEO. We learn about your business and make sure that your new website is part of your branding and conveys your message as it should. We also include Organic Structure within the website even though it can’t be seen, this is not an add on sale and is not skipped because you would never know any better. This is an important part of the web design that needs to be done, no exceptions. We also make sure the flow of information is good throughout your website, this allows you to have better control over how your customers are directed within the website.
BUSINESS AND CONSULTING BACKGROUNDS
We have a strong background in business consulting and running successful businesses, we use this knowledge in the design of our websites as well. This also helps us build from a business minded standpoint so we see the integration between the business and web design a lot differently than others do. This real world business minded approach to web design is a valuable asset.
What do You Stand to Lose?
Your website is so very important in so many ways, it really is the foundation for all of your marketing efforts. Many people stay with a bad website out of fear of spending too much money for a website that may or may not be good, they keep telling themselves that the old website will do for now and many other excuses for not making a change. If your competition has a good website you can bet they are taking more of the market share and will take more and more every month that nothing is done. If they don’t have a good website then now is your chance to be the one with the stronger online presence so you can capture that market share from them. Reach out to us and at the least have a telephone appointment so we can explain the benefits of having a good website and how those benefits would specifically apply to your business. No business wants an old run down sign in front of their business and a building that is in desperate need of repair, your website should be no different.
Making the Internet Look Good Since 2001!
THE EARLY DAYS
We actually started designing websites in the late 90s but made it official in 2001, not too mention the good ole days of creating servers and bulletin boards via dial up modems before there was any internet. We even fooled around with making video games back in the day, the cell phones now have way more capabilities than the computers we were using then (scary). Even in the early days of web design we were very focused on building websites with purpose and being visually attractive without all of the bells and whistles of the day.
Having a Small Business Isn’t Easy.
YOU WORK HARD, YOUR WEBSITE SHOULD AS WELL
Chances are you have put a lot of time and effort in getting your business where it is today, you should expect the same hard work from your website. We understand the struggles of business owners wearing so many different hats and trying to maintain a life in the process, we have gone to great efforts to make your website be something simple for you to manage. A huge part of our web design process is taking into consideration how easy it will be for you to manage your website content without taking valuable time away from your day.
