Reducing costs… that’s a priority for just about every business owner. You want to obtain products and services for as little cash as possible because the less you spend, the more money you’ll have in your pocket, right?
While the prospect of getting a website for $500 or less might seem appealing initially, the decision will come back to haunt you later. And it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll end up spending more money fixing that $500 website than you would if you hired a professional to design your website from the very beginning.
Having a visually appealing and user-friendly website is essential for doing business online – and succeeding at it – in this digital age. What’s shocking is that many business owners invest a significant amount of money in glossy brochures, advertisement campaigns, and other promotional tools, but don’t have any qualms about entrusting their website’s design to a neighbor’s 16 year old son or one of those free, do it yourself site builders we see advertised by a famous accounting software company.
Your Website Is Your Most Important Online Marketing Tool
The process of designing your business’s website is nothing to take lightly. Your website is the face of your online presence, so it must reflect your business’s expertise, reliability, and competence.
Your website should be easy to navigate and present the information your customers want in a simple, appealing way. Its design should enhance your brand’s message with attractive graphics and set you apart from your competitors.
A Professionally-Designed Website Builds Trust
A generic website template might do the trick when you’re just starting out and can’t afford to invest in the real deal, but you should only treat it as a temporary solution. If you want to boost your business’s credibility and build long-term trust, you need to invest in an original, professionally-designed site.
Many internet users have been scammed or at least know people who have been scammed online, so they have become increasingly cautious. This means that a substandard, generic, or tacky website design will make your website visitors reluctant to pick up the phone or pull out their credit card. They probably won’t even stick around long enough to determine exactly what products and services your business offers.
On average, internet users only spend a few seconds on a website. If you have a $500 website, can you say with honesty that it’s appealing enough to attract and retain people’s attention in such a short timeframe? If it takes your website visitors longer than just a few seconds to figure out who you are, what you do, and what you’re offering, they will leave your site. And your competitors are only a click away.
Make a Lasting Impression on Your Website Visitors
Whenever you meet potential clients and hand them your business card, one of the first things they’ll do is visit your website. The initial impression they get from your site will shape their perception of your company. Having a professionally designed site may be just what you need to turn that lead into a customer.
