Small Business Website Design

Professional Web Design Services for Small Businesses on the Gold Coast

Even if your business does not offer products for sale on the internet, you still need to have a presence on the web for your business. "Why?" you might ask... Given that a lot of your customers are now searching for information about your type of business online before they decide to call, visit or buy from you, it's a pretty big reason to make sure that you are found.

You most likely know some businesses who are doing exceptionally well without a website. We do, too. But we often speculate how much better they could be performing if they made the time to invest in one. And when we say "website," we do not mean a digital version of that sales pamphlet that they have been giving out for the previous 10 years. We mean a legitimate, well-thought-out site that is designed to communicate with, engage and convert their audience.

By constructing a website you stop being invisible to anyone trying to find you online. More and more reports are telling us about the ROBO effect in which consumers are mastering the process of researching online before buying offline. They are keying their difficulties or requirements into the search engine of their choosing and are researching the businesses that show up for those queries. If you do not have a Web presence, there is no possibility of you showing up and you never actually break into their thought process.

In 2019, you cannot afford to be invisible.

7 Reasons Why Your Small Business Should Have a Website:

1. Build Your Brand

Consumers have more confidence in, and prefer doing business with, businesses that they know something about. Use your new website to inform visitors about the structure of your company, of your community involvement, the products and services you offer, awards, and employment opportunities. A new, professional and results focussed website will ensure there is an influence on your potential customers to enquire or purchase your products.

2. Improve Your Credibility

Consumers want to know that you're stable enough to have a dedicated and professional web presence that is modern and can be accessed on a mobile phone. They want to know that you'll be around tomorrow should something go wrong, and that they can get a hold of you when they need to. A well designed website gives you the opportunity to tell potential customers what you are about and why you deserve their trust and confidence.

3. Increase Revenue

The internet has made it possible for businesses to crack the geographical barriers and become accessible, virtually, from any country in the world by a potential customer that has internet access.
A well designed website can help you to reach more consumers, convert more sales, and in return increase your revenue.

4. Create a Modern Sales Tool

A new website is a mighty sales tool and one that enables you to manage your customers' concerns, give them the understanding they need to make a decision and create compelling calls to action. Sure, you can carry on setting ads in the Yellow Pages and believe that word-of-mouth generates on its own...or you can build something that inspires it to happen. Your website is your starting point where people can go to seek out trustworthy information about your business and connect with you on a more personal level. Use it to develop confidence in your brand and to offer customers important buying information (and incentives).

6. Access Cheap Market Research

You can use features on your new website such as visitor polls, online surveys and your website statistics to find out what your customers like more and how they feel about certain aspects of your business to determine how you can improve your product and the way you do business.
Website statistics reveal to you how much traffic your website acquires, how the visitor found your website and where, geographically, the visitor is from.

7. Quickly and Easily Edit Business Information

Our Content Management System is truly 'easy'. Unlike other Content Management Systems, you can edit your own content right there, live on the page... there's no accessing dashboards or downloading or uploading content files, or having to consult a user guide because you forgot how to do it. You simply sign in, navigate your website as you normally would to find the page that you want to change, and click "Edit" to make your changes right there and then.
