We focus our Chicago web design services entirely on R.O.I. for our clients, and making sure they earn actual customers from the website we make for them.
“Six months ago we were reading Tim Brown’s client reviews just like you are now. We decided to contact Tim based on the reviews we read. That decision turned out to be one of the best actions our company, Whiskers To Tails Petsitting, has made in our seven years of business. Our sales have increased from 20% to 40% on a daily basis, and the site performs perfectly from a mobile phone. We have added five additional staff members to handle the increase in business.”
”We have been able to better tell our story to prospects and investors resulting in increased buy-in and new customers. Tim gets it! He is highly collaborative and is focused on increasing our conversions – not just driving targeted traffic. He checks in regularly to make sure the people contacting us are the right kinds of leads. This goes beyond web design and SEO – working with Tim is working a business partner who is in it to win it with us.”
WordPress is one of the most widely supported Trust factors and call to actions.
Trust factors = the badges, testimonials, reviews, organizations, awards, pictures and clear contact information that make it easy to trust your company – along with clear information about your product or service that demonstrates why it’s different than your competitors.
Call to actions = Many websites don’t have obvious next steps throughout the site. We want people to be able to get where they need to go. We want them to find new opportunities in your site and it’s never a bad thing to nudge them in that direction. If the main thing you want people to do on your site is to contact you - there should be a big bold button at the top ‘calling to action’ for visitors, and a section at the end of each page that visually showcases this next action with a button as well.
Don’t spend more than you’ll think you’ll make! But seriously, if you are a million to three million dollar company that stands to benefit from a marketing-centric site, it would be wise to try to spend 10k-20k on a website, 5 million to 50 million you might be more likely to spend 25k to 50k, and beyond 50 million doesn’t always mean you have to spend over 100k on your website – it really depends on what a website can make your company.
If it really can make you a lot of money – INVEST in a good one. A lot of the work really should be going towards figuring out how to market the website, not just the initial build.
A website can take anywhere from 2 months to 1 year, whereas the average process we work on with clients is 3 or 4 months – with time for a dedicated visual design process and iteration with feedback from the client, and a custom development process with time for iteration from the client, and content entry.
The average lifetime of a well built website is around 5 years, depending on when it was built and the quality of the craftsmanship. Some websites can only last one or two years – if they weren’t built by a real professional. Always take a look at case studies and dig into the work someone has done before hiring them to do a website, to ensure the quality of their work.
