What makes Effective CMS different than the others? These 6 words - you might not need a website.
That's right! Even as a professional website consultancy company, we know that not every company needs a website for their online business, and we won't push it!
That's because aside from website design and development services, we also provide consultation and management support for social media - including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others - as well paid online and offline advertising support. So before committing to a website development, we want to let you know the best plan for you and your industry to help you protect your business and budget and plan for growth in the future.
What are the things that determine a website solution versus an online or print advertising solution?
We are fully confident that we can provide you a results based, lead generating, website. However, as online business consultants, due to the research and development required to provide such results, sometimes businesses need to know their other options for an effective online presence before investing the time in a website to produce those results. That way, you don't get burned by just another website company experience.
In short, YES! In a recent report of all the websites found online today, over 70% of websites that you visit are created by content management systems - over 1/3 developed with Wordpress. That means that only 30% are created by actual website developers. Although we've developed our own CMS to speed up our website generation, we are not sales people, but web developers with over 20 years of programming, web development, web design, and search engine optimization experience who know how to get results and not just sales!
After we've determined that a website solution is for you, there are a few things to consider.
If you already have a website, congratulations! Hopefully, you have a thriving and productive website that you are proud of. Unfortunately, you may be having difficulty getting changes done or not getting the results that you are looking for. In either case, we are here to help.
If your existing website is producing results, and you are wanting another website to supplement your already successful online business strategy, great! We can create specialized websites for specific local locations or highlight specific services that tie into your existing website - allowing you to reach more customers.
If your existing website is NOT producing results, we have 2 options for website evaluation to fit your needs and budget.
Both website evaluation reports provide you a plan of action on how to improve your website performance and lead generation that has proven results. The detailed website evaluation report includes a list of common SEO errors as well as specific recomendations on technical and marketing layout changes that will help increase your online exposure as well as retain more visitors.
If you are a home-based business or have a storefront and we've established that creating a website is right for you, then we can sit down and start discussing the plans for your new website or multiple website marketing plan.
Although we have 3 main Website builder packages to choose from, we also offer customized website plans to fit your product/service, budget, and intended customer reach.
After determining which size website package will fit your business strategy, the next steps are a proven plan for short and long term success of your online presence.
In our experience, we've found that most businesses do not have the content or images on hand that are crucial for a successful online website marketing strategy. Initially, this resulted in a delay of website creation and as the information slowly would creep in and was published to the web, we got slower results.
Our first step generates an SEO rich website that gets quick placement and visitors to your website, usually within a few days - not weeks or months. Of course, this is just the start.
In the initial step, it is form over function. In the second step, we start customizing the design of your website to retain visitors and get more leads. This delay not only helps us focus on the technical aspects for success, but also gives you time to get us the content and images you want to market your website.
This is not "A field of dreams", just because you build it, does not mean they will come.
In this 3rd step, we look at the reports to see where people are coming from and how they are reacting on your website. By now, we've already established a regular content update plan: including specials, deals, social posts, and article generation. Technical alterations and SEO optimization will also be ongoing to help you compete in the marketplace and you not only have a website you can be proud of, but one that often generates more leads and sales than you can handle (typical of past clients).
Website and Online Business Consultation is an investment in your business and requires research and development behind the scenes in order to produce highly effective websites. Although our results and service are better than the competition, we've kept our consulting fees at a competitive $100/hr*.
