It’s common knowledge that it takes less than 10 seconds to form a first impression when interviewing a prospective job candidate. A website is no different, yet many businesses make the simple mistake of assuming appearance doesn’t matter. In the time it takes to glance at your homepage userswill decide to stay or leave, i.e. whether to find out more about you or seek out a competitor. Image matters and it won’t do you any favours if you neglect it.
As a small business, we’d like to help you understand just how important a website is to you and your clients. It’s your window to the world, showcasing your business personality and bringing your business to life. How you are perceived by potential clients is literally in the blink of an eye when they land on your homepage either by chance or by design. Unfortunately, many small businesses and sole traders feel constrained when it comes to websites. Why spend a lot of money on a website if you’re just starting up and have limited funds available? Small businesses and sole traders often fall into the trap of wanting to have a website ‘up and running’ as soon as possible, for as little as possible and with as little input as necessary. Having a basic website which doesn’t incorporate your business personality won’t do you any favours and could, potentially, deter clients from wanting to do business with you.
When it comes to ‘keeping it fresh’ we know that most people don’t want to be tied in to having to rely on a third party to update their website. With our sites, you can have as little or as much editorial control as you want. Content updates can be done – quickly! You can have full autonomy over your website or, if you prefer to leave it to us, you won’t be charged the earth for us to update. As your business develops and grows, so can your website. If you want to change your image at some point in the future, your website can be adapted ot reflect this.
Image matters more than you think, so we’ll work closely with you to evolve your image and create a site specifically designed to promote your business. We’ll listen to your requests to ensure your website does your business justice. After all, it’s in our interests too for your website to work for you.
Let us create a site for you – it won’t break the bank. Find out more here.
