Small Business Website Design

The fact is that everyone is now searching the Internet for everything they need. Not having a website for your small business risks losing sales to your web-savvy competitors who are online. No matter what size your business, your company needs a professional website to gain credibility, keep customers informed, and target a much wider audience. Having a website also saves you more time and money than you may think unlike traditional marketing practices.

Small Business Website Design Options

Custom website design. A custom website design is tailored to fit your company’s unique needs and gives you the flexibility for future expansion. A custom design manifests high quality and uniqueness while also suiting the personality and branding of your business. With professional designers and developers, we make your website come to life with an edge that will stand out against competitors. While a custom design is ideal for small businesses, it may not always fit within your budget. In this case, a theme website design may be better suited for your current needs.

Theme website design. With a theme website design, we will choose from a pre-designed or template design, by passing the custom graphic design phase. With a theme, you are still able to accomplish many of the requirements you believe are necessary for your website. Although a theme may hold you back in layout and custom graphic elements, it’s important to find one that fits the best with your company and its content needs. Branding your small business is vital through your website. We can make your website unique by adding your logo, creative images, and adjusting the color scheme to coordinate with your brand.

Responsive web design. A responsive web design will assure that your website will be easily accessible by smoothly adapting to multiple monitor sizes, screen resolutions, and devices. Be it a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone, our developers will create a website that it optimized for each platform in navigation, readability, and load time. No more hassle trying to scroll up and down or zoom in and out to be able to read your content on a particular device. Both custom and theme websites can be made responsive. Responsive is no longer optional, your website needs to be available on the mobile web.

Website Development for Small Businesses

There are an infinite amount of features that your website could include. If you can dream it, our team of developers can build it. However, there are a few features, or tools that are fairly typical in small business websites. Let’s explore some of the basics.

Blog. Maintaining a blog for your company’s website is a great way to stay engaged with your visitors and potential customers. A blog allows you to share the latest updates with your products/services or share information about the latest news in your industry. A business blog is your number one asset for successful content marketing. Blogging is also conversational; customers and visitors are able to comment on your posts with comments or questions. Blogs are an effective way of getting your organization’s name out to the public and help from an SEO perspective as well.

Custom eCommerce. If your company needs to sell products/services, a custom eCommerce solution will accomplish just that. With eCommerce, you’re able to manage inventory and sell products through your site via secured online credit card transactions. Having an eCommerce payment system gives your customers the control to purchase your offerings when and wherever they want.

Social Media Integration. Social media sites are essential for engaging with your customers, clients, and leads. We can integrate social media feeds like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube into your website to show that your company’s recent activity on social media.

We have had many comments from our community on the ease of use of navigation and they really have enjoyed the new look and layout. Our staff certainly has benefited as we have used the website more and more as a communication device to our school patrons. I look forward to taking full advantage of the student section for our classes, hopefully next year.
