Each and every day we have to make hundreds of choices.
What to wear? What to have for breakfast? What groceries do I need? What to cook for dinner tonight? etc. etc. and that is all before leaving the house.
The mind can only sort through so many options and make so many choices before it starts to run out of steam. That is why I thought I would take away the pressure of yet another decision and tell you why you should choose me to build your website.
hmmmm…this is starting to sound like a sales pitch….well I guess it is….
My target market are small business owners – the electrician, personal trainer, GP, small retail store – all starting out, needing a website but not having the huge budget to pay for all the bells and whistles. I am a small business so I understand. Working from my exterior home office, I have minimal overheads, and don’t have any staff to pay. By working this way I am able to offer affordable quality web design services.
#2-Easy as 1-2-3
My website design process is constantly being tweaked & perfected but after 12 years of running my own business and working with business owners to craft effective websites, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t.
I choose to build my websites with easy content management systems like WordPress or Joomla. These CMS have been tried and tested over and over again. I provide my clients with site specific management guidelines, so once the website is launched they can take control -if they wish 😉
#3 – SEO
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a huge part of having a website. I handle the fundamental basics for you when I build your website. The keywords and description, alternate text for photos, and page titles all play a part of how the search engines find your website. I build those things into your website during the design process. I register the site with Google, too.
Of course there is some other things involved, but I can’t give away all my tips and tricks 🙂
I can say though, that I myself have NEVER paid for advertising – I rely solely on a google search for business (that and referrals from happy customers). I pride myself in gaining prime position for my chosen search term (and variants of) “Wollongong website design” and I work very hard to achieve the same result for my clients. I certainly can’t guarantee that it is a sure thing that I can get your business on the front page of google without advertising (no web designer can do that) – however I certainly try my best and have achieved prime position as many of my clients can attest.
#4 – Great design
You need an affordable website but you don’t want one that looks like a high school computer project! Your website should reflect your business.
#5-Work with an actual person
I am the business. You and I will work together from start to launch. I bring years of experience as a marketing professional and a website designer so I am always looking for ways for you to use your website to enhance your business. You get my marketing background experience/advice free as part of the design process!
This is my business. Once we work together and launch your website I am on call (well email) for you. Question or concern? I am here for you. Always.
