I talk with hundreds of small business owners every day. Most of them are quality companies that do good work for honest prices…unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at their websites.
There are a few ways to look at this situation. On one hand you could say, well that means you don’t really need a website to have a good company. On the other hand, I can’t help thinking about what they are missing out on if they were to get quality website, and I’m not just talking about more business.
I understand that some companies have all the work they can handle…but what about getting more money per job? What about having a nice reference point that you can be proud of when someone asks to see samples of your work and make sure you are a legitimate company? Would it make your life easier if you could direct potential customers to your website, rather than having to go to their home to show them pictures? How about taking payments online?
Here is a good example of the advantage a quality website can give you. My siblings and I were recently in the market for a lawn service. We wanted our mom to have it for mother’s day. My brother and I did some research online, while my sister asked some friends and family. We ended going with a local company we found online. They did not have the lowest price, but they were the most responsive via email and they had the best website. So, we were comfortable they would do a good job and it was convenient for us because we knew they would respond to emails and allow us to make payments online via their website.
If you purchase a website with the idea that it will be your company’s savior…you may want to look for another line of work. A website should not be your only way to get new business, but it can be the main factor that leads to taking your business to the next level. It is realistic to think if you play your cards right on the web it could take you from a company just starting out, to a stable company, from a stable company to a good company and from a good company to a great company.
To get a better idea of what I’m referring to, take a look at some of our before and afters as well as our testimonials. I think it will give you good insight on the benefits of our websites and the quality of our work.
