Low Cost Website Design
We’ve all seen the ‘do it yourself’ website builders, which offer you websites for free or some for just a few dollars a month. If you’re like some people, you may know someone in your circle of family and friends that can take on the task of designing you a site for practically nothing -maybe just some pizza and beer. As tempting as these offers are, save yourself the time, money and energy. For many businesses, cheap website fall short of creating a distinct brand image and may do little more than occupy a lonely and desolate domain name on the Internet with no visitors to show for all your effort. Many of these sites will typically be written with bad spelling or grammar, and may never return any investment for your business, regardless of how little you invest. Professional website designers have the skills and training that can create new opportunities for new business online, by driving quality web traffic, and ultimately winning you sales leads and/or online orders. After all, a well designed and effective website will act as a critical sales tool for your company, operating 24-hours per day. It’s for this reason, you may consider investing a bit more on your website than the cost of a pizza and some beer -your business is worth it.

“Everyone Knows Me, I Don’t Need a Website”
Perhaps not. Most people in the web design business might say you do need a website, but there are no hard and fast rules that say every business must have one. These days most of your customers will expect your business to offer information online, however, you can probably think of many Prince George businesses that do just fine without any web presence at all. As with any marketing strategy you initiate, Internet marketing should really be about a measurable return on your investment. While websites are usually great for client communication, they won’t necessarily generate revenue for your company without a good strategy to do so.
Search Engine Marketing Plan
Launching a website doesn’t automatically mean visitor traffic will start flowing in, and some businesses have discovered this the hard way. Whether you invest a few hundred bucks, or tens of thousands into building a website, a website void of visitors is simply a waste of time and money. You’ll need to be realistic about your traffic expectations and plan out specifically how you will attract traffic to your website before you build one. There are many ways to draw visitor traffic to your website, whether it’s advertising referrals, linking or an SEO campaign that will grow your keyword rankings through major search engines. Just don’t make the mistake of believing that your website will somehow just magically get a good “Google ranking” all on its own -because it won’t. Whether you are targeting visitor traffic locally in Prince George or globally, you may find it challenging to achieve a top ranking search result for keywords, particularly if you are developing a new website and have an abundance of competitors.
