When it comes to your businesses marketing strategy, the first and most important step in your marketing campaign is the professional development of a web site. Almost every potential customer you have begins their search for your type of business on the internet and having your presence Search Engine Optimized (SEO) is the quickest way your business will be found and recognized.
With the combination of professional interface design, intuitive navigation, (SEO), and content created by a professional your site will show your customers that your business is credible and professional. Professionally created content, which includes written text, photos, video, and design solidifies the user experience and is the best way to engage your visitors and retain their interest in your business services.
A well-designed professional website shouldn't be a question of whether you need it or not! It's a must for any business owner. A great website fuels business growth, helps retain customers and drives more sales with amazing first impressions. It's definitely one of the most powerful marketing channels for all businesses out there.
So why do so many businesses ride it out without a website? The simple most common answer is cost. To develop a well-designed professional site can cost upwards of thousands of dollars, but it doesn't always have too. At BlueJay, we've made it more affordable for development and management of your website.
We can design many types of websites including personal blogs, aggregate news, e-commerce, small business, corporate, non-profit and educational, but the most common two are business/corporate and e-commerce, which is what we detail on this page. Contact us to inquire about other types of sites we can develop and manage for you.
Depending on your website needs, you may need a simple blog or informative page where you can share news and advise with your customers. If you have more precise and expanded needs, then a small business website could be ideal which would have a few pages such as contact, about us and other pages used for calls to action (CTA). This type of site is used to attract and retain customers and drive sales. However, some are set up to disseminate information and news.
Then there are the larger websites used to convey much more information and more marketing purposes. These are larger corporate sites used communicate a company's goals and exhibit its portfolio. These types of sites may include other important pages like career opportunities and board of director or investors.
Online Stores are very common and are sites that deal with receiving payments in exchange for products or services online. The website is ideal for suppliers who can sell their products online and is quite analogous to retailers selling for multiple users or a compound platform.
After deciding the type of website that best works for you many other considerations come into play. As the developmental stage begins, you as the business owner must consider structuring of content, image sizes, what page titles you use and the header text for each, conversion optimization, calls to action, online tracking and implementation of other important tools.
Our team will go over these important details using the information in the design process. And as we get started, we work on all the other parts as well, such as SEO, off site business listings, reviews, backlinks and more. All of these components are essential to the success of your website and your overall business growth.
Retaining BlueJay to build your web presence is the stress-free overworked way to go as we not only focus on the things just mentioned, but also building pages, adding content, setting up analytics and the more complex things like redirects, adding custom URLs and XML sitemap, change/add meta titles and descriptions, customize your headings, and add alt tags to your images.
