Website Development Program
Website Creation – A Pretty Website Is Not Enough
I don’t think we need to talk about the importance of having a website. What we do need to talk about is the importance of having an effective direct-response website that is much more than a business card online. If you have a website or are thinking about getting one it needs to do two things. First, and foremost, it needs to get you business (either phone ringing, form submissions or purchases). Second, the website needs to be a fair representation of your company’s identity. We will work with you to make sure that we put your vision and design preference into a website that has optimization and conversion in mind.
Why Should You Care About Website Development?
It depends on your current situation, but the one thing you need to know is a website is a must. Today, the vast majority of business is done by visiting a website first. Yes, even if you have a “word-of-mouth” driven business. When the “word” is passed on, it is highly likely that the person who hears about you will go online to learn about your company. Once you understand that you need a website, there are many things that you need to make sure your website does. First, your website needs to be user-friendly. Second, your website needs to encourage visitors to take action. Third, your website needs to fit the message and identity of your company.
Why MarkUBiz For Website Development?
Not all websites and not all website development companies are equal. A very well designed website is a great, but if it is lacking simple conversion elements like opt-in forms and phone number placement, the website is merely a pretty object. Furthermore, most website development companies are focused solely on development. They are not marketing companies (even if they offer SEO or similar programs). What sets MarkUBiz apart is that we are a marketing company that builds good looking websites that are extremely well optimized (but not over-optimized) and have both conversion and your visitors needs in mind. When building a website you need to understand your own wants/needs, but always consider the end user, optimization and conversion.
