We come across people on a daily basis who are looking to build a website to promote their business or product online. Exploring your options is an important function of any business and one a business owner should take seriously when choosing a company to design their website. There are many things that people don’t know or understand about website design and it’s our intention to help educate you on what it takes to build a functional website for your business.
Many companies have sprouted up recently, offering free websites to people who are interested in using a do-it-yourself approach to website design. This option is great for small business owners who don’t have money to invest in designing a website; however, these websites come with many limitations. The largest of these limitations is that the websites are made using templates. Often you cannot get colors, spacing, and content to look the way you want. This can cause frustration and disappointment. Many business owners who take this approach spend a good deal of time setting up their website and end up unhappy with the results. If you fall into this category, all is not lost. In many cases you can hire a designer to make a few adjustments that will enhance your site for minimal cost.
If you’re looking for a top-notch website that will look and act exactly as you want it to, you’ll need to hire a website designer. Be sure to check references from any website designer you hire. We’ve heard so many horror stories from business owners who paid someone to do their website and then they disappeared. I can honestly say that a good deal of the people who hire us have shared a bad experience they’ve had with another website designer. Ask for some examples of their work; check to see if you like the websites they’ve done. Ask if the final product is optimized for search engines. Consider hiring a photographer. Having beautiful photos on your website can set you apart from the crowd. Plus, having high quality photos available to a website designer can provide lots of inspiration.
With Welborn Media you’ll get a completely customized website. Every single person who has had a website designed by us has told us that the website was better than they could have ever imagined. Our website designer, Lacey, is extremely talented when it comes to taking an individual’s/company’s website and turning it into something that’s better than our customers had envisioned.
We are members of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and helping to make businesses successful online is our passion. Our business will be here for a long time to come and we aren’t going anywhere.
