I hope everyone has put up a website by now if you read my previous article about “Why you need a good Website for your business”? So if you have finally taken the plunge and put a website up, Congratulations, it’s a wise move for your business success!
Well today I’m writing to discuss the importance of having a professional website for your personal brand or business. I will also mention about my web designing service in Worcester, United Kingdom and WordPress online training and Website Builder program, which you can get at a 25% off discounted rate if you provide the code (**89877) when you contact me. This is a Website I designed for a photography studio last week: www.studiovimukthi.com
The reason why I’m writing this post is, because most of the websites I came across by Startups looks very armature. When I sometimes ask my friends who just launched a website for their personal brand or the newly started home business, the first couple of lines of the conversation go like this:
“What? You did it yourself?
“Let me take a look… oh… ummm…”
So does your website scream amateur when a professional checks it out? It can be all good and cheap to put your site together yourself or you got your cousin, who knows a little more than you do, to put it up for you.
Think about it, when you put a critical eye on your website as if you were your customer. Will you buy from it? That’s something I always think about my products and services. Obviously you may be proud about your designing skills and saving a couple hundred bucks for yourself, but this may be a reason why your customers walks away from your website even if you attract them through paid traffic systems such as Google PPC.
I do PPC for newly launched websites and clients who want instant traffic for their website without blogging or any other content marketing techniques, but the long-term strategy for online success is creating a professional website. When I develop a website, I focus on how best can the website get organic search engine traffic by having the best site structure or you can call it the framework where the site is build on.
Simply put, a well developed professional website structure with appropriate header and other graphics will make your online business face professional and the visitors to your site will spend more time on your site. This gives you the time to show more about your products and services and even encourage them to chat with you if you use a real-time chatting service like WHOES ON.
If your design looks lame, then everything else gets less attention from the prospects, even if you do have valuable information on your site. Now I know you might argue that I like minimalism, but how long did you spent time on a site which is less attractive.
The site’s graphics are so important, but often overlooked by businesses. If you’ve gone to all the work to bring new people to your website, don’t you want to leave a good first impression?
Take a look at some of the websites you like to visit and check out their website header, their “buy now” buttons, and the other graphical elements.
Are they in keeping with the overall theme of the business?
- Are they pleasing to look at?
- Do the graphics in the content make the site easier to read?
The good news is you don’t have to be a professional web designer or graphics artist to have a professional-looking website! I can reveal my resources or arrange to have it done for you to save you time and hassles.
