Your Website Is Your Shop Front
Your business website is, in effect, your sales counter and shop front.
Think of the lengths shopkeepers, store owners and shop brands go to in creating attractive window displays so as to grab the attention of their customers as they pass by.
If the passerby happens to stop to look at the window display, they are more likely to enter the shop and buy something.
This analogy works perfectly for website and in a similar way you need a developer that can create pages that are visually appealing and contain well written content and relevant high resolution imagery.
If you have an existing site and you're not sure about the quality, we offer a Free Audit that will advise you accordingly. Apply here:
Getting Your Website Found In Google & Search Engines
So how will your prospective customers find your site in the first place?
You may well be asking 'What is that and how does it work?'
Well, firstly they will search Google for the services or products that your business and other service providers (your competitors) offer.
Secondly they’ll most likely click on one on the top five search results on Google’s first page.
So, to summarise, your site will need to be readily found on the first page of Google for relevant keywords (or search terms).
One of the best forms of marketing and advertising is on the internet and through Search Engine Optimisation / SEO.
That is why all types of clever companies around the world invest heavily in Internet marketing and primarily Search Engine Optimisation.
Quite simply, to maximise your sales potential and profits, you need organic SEO.
It will put your business in front of the widest audience available and offers the best ROI (return on investment) of any advertising medium.
Not sure about your SEO and if you even have any? We'll check it out for you.
We’ve dedicated a whole Search Engine Optimization page to this subject and service so head on over there now to learn more.
Converting Your Customers
Your site's visitors need to be able to quickly learn about your services or products and be able to easily navigate to your contact details or easily make a purchase.
Also, when your prospective customer visits your site, they need to be encouraged to stick around longer than just a casual glance. Interesting and unique content, graphics and images should properly promote your services and products.
The success of your website is measured in the number of visitors who covert to sales leads or purchase products.
Business Website Design & Development
A high quality professional website plays a central role in your sales and marketing strategy.
It is therefore essential that you use the services of a professional, experienced and proven company.
You need the services of an agency with experience and professional knowledge who will draw on multiple skill sets including information architecture, marketing analytics, copy writing and graphic art as well as the technical development.
These talents then allow for the matching of the new site with your businesses requirements.
The best business websites can’t simply be pulled out of a magicians’ hat.
While everyone searches for ways to attract more visitors to their site and convert more visitors to leads or sales, each client needs an individually designed solution.
It may be that you need a web development company to modernise your existing website, taking full advantage of the latest technologies, or maybe you’re looking to build a new website from scratch in order to maximise your online marketing potential?

While there is a initial investment in getting your site up and running and drawing in customers, you need to also consider how you will retain your existing clients.
