We sit down with you and figure out the best look for your new website. Our goal is to supply you with a design that is attractive and helps your business grow, whether it be a booming restaurant, growing lawn service, or your home-based hair and skin care salon.
FACT: Your website is the landing page for your business and often the first impression of your company. Just like in life, first impressions go a long way. *Think about the last time you bought a new product or service...you probably looked them up online first.
FACT: According to a 2015 national study, 8 out of 10 Americans use the Internet to make their purchase decisions. According to the study, the major factor was the ability to efficiently research their buying decisions.
What this means? We are in a new age, and if untapped customers can't find you online, don't expect many to walk in your front door. We can help make sure you don't miss out on the new age of digital consumers who are practically attached to their smartphones. Let them find you and the image you want to portray, not what an unverified online review says.
Our Search Engine Optimization process comes standard with any new website design, making it easy for would-be customers to find you online.
We are a proud and professional Southern Maryland website design team, dedicated to helping our small business partners grow. As local website designers, this is our community too - so professionalism & customer service mean everything.
We believe in fair prices and won't overcharge or oversell you services you don't need (like corporate web designers try to do). If you need a beautiful but basic website, that's what we'll deliver. And if you want extra bells and whistles, we have those too! But we won't ever try to take advantage of your business. We build digital integrity into every small business website design.
Frankly, your customers expect it. You may be the best in the business and have a loyal following of customers who already appreciate your brand, but unfortunately word of mouth isn't enough anymore.
Market research has consistently shown that websites establish a perception of credibility & legitimacy - and today's consumers are looking for it (81%, to be exact). So if your company doesn't have it's own website, your would-be customers will turn to those that do.
It used to be that small business owners didn't need a website if most of their business was local. But now just about everyone uses the Internet to get information - even local information. If customers can't easily find you on their smartphones, don't expect them to walk in your front door.
*While social media presence is a definite plus, it's not enough by itself. The broader market of consumers are still looking for a website with relevant and detailed information about your business.
Whether you're a restaurant manager, a lawn service entrepreneur, or a beautician with a growing clientele - having a professional website allows your small business to showcase it's products or services in great detail.
Websites provide a 24/7 location to show off stunning images, short video tutorials, or provide downloadable PDFs that provide a menu of services. These are the things that instill a perception of business legitimacy.
FACT: Research has consistently shown that having an online presence significantly increases a company's bottom line revenue opportunities. *Yet some small businesses are still reluctant to getting online.
TRUTH: Although the initial design cost can vary, a website for a small business generally costs less than $30 a month! Compare that with the cost of mail-marketing or running a TV commercial & it's easy to see why websites are a very cost effective way to promote new business growth and save money.
While you could rely upon Yelp and other social media platforms to review your brand for you, it would be like rolling the dice. Some good reviews, some not-so-good reviews, and probably a grab-bag of unverified in-betweeners.
Don't be at the mercy of someone else. By maintaining your own website, you control the narrative of your online image and have a platform to post choice-customer reviews and positive testimonials to your brand.
Opening a new location? Want to post the Sunday sermon from your church? Maybe you are running a new sale, or changing your hours, or even adding a new product or service? Sound familiar...
Well, share it!
These are the things that will be important to your clients and by announcing them online you will build business credibility and a sense of good professional house-keeping!
