As a business owner, you know that in order to be successful in your industry, you must stand out among the competition. And as a consumer, you also know that shopping for a product or service is just a quick online search away. Consumers are faced with more choices than ever before thanks to the Internet, which is why having a well-designed and fully functional company website is always in your best interest.
So what’s an entrepreneur to do?
Take a crash course in web design and do it yourself
Hey, we know you’re smart. So work smarter, not harder. You’re too busy running a successful business, after all.
Hire a freelance web designer
Sure, you may have a friend or rather a friend of friend who knows a thing or two about Photoshop. And sure, you may already know someone who has a background in programming. But who do you call when your new website is not showing up in Google search results?
It’s not hard to find a company online that will build, host and manage your website for a decent price overseas. And who knows, they might even do a decent job on the initial build. But of course every website needs ongoing maintenance. Say you need a last-minute update to some of the content. How quickly can you reach someone? And once you do finally get through to the right person, how quick is the turnaround time? As any business owner knows, different time zones can often be a challenge when it comes to communication.
Your best bet
Find a solution that really does fit your needs. Ideally, a full-service web design and support company with great customer service (in your time zone, of course) that offers low monthly rates for professional web design, maintenance and SEO services.
