This is where internet marketing begins. Sure you can just use social media, but websites are what gives your brand social proof and trust. A well built, smooth-running website can be the difference between making or breaking your business.
When it comes to designing a well-structured website there are many factors at play. There is the design and layout of the site, and the behind the scenes programming that makes your website function.
Our goal is to make sure that your first impression on clients has the WOW factor.
The Basics of Web Design
Almost 20% of all websites these days (huge) are built on the open-source Content Management System, WordPress, and that is the platform we use here at Stodzy. WordPress allows you to use themes, whether custom-built or pre-made, to create beautiful, user-friendly, conversion-focused websites.
The themes for WordPress are endless. WP built sites also allow you to add various plugins from Twitter feeds to contact forms that give your website the CTA that will grow your business in the flash of an eye.
What else can WordPress do?
It may very well be the most powerful blogging engine out there these days. It also is the preferred platform of Google which in turn, can impact your search engine rankings greatly.
Why Do I Need a Web Designer?
There are many services out there these days that let you “build your own websites”, and while that is great and all, an actual designer is going to not only give you a custom made site, but they will also be able to use design and programming to allow for a unique customer experience as well as a site that functions according to Google’s SEO on-site guidelines.
Web design is just as much a function of SEO as any of the other elements, and a poorly built site can keep you off the first page of search engines.
Web designers can help customize everything from logos, to sliders, to the functionality of the site, many things that (no offense) people building their own sites off some service don’t know how to do.
Many times people go ahead and build their own site thinking they are saving themselves money. The truth? You are most likely losing money by building a site yourself.
Professional designers know how to build high converting sites, whereas the average joe schmo doesn’t know what a CTA even looks like. That’s why you need a professional to handle building your website.
In this day and age, people seem to almost judge a business by the look of their website. It’s the first place where you need to make an impression with a potential consumer and the difference between a one time visitor and a loyal customer.
