Colorado Springs Web Design
A pretty business website is nothing if it can’t be found! Your web design expert should not only design and build your website to attract and engage users but also design in a SEO (search engine optimization) strategy from the start.
Without great on-page SEO , your website will be just another pretty website that’s lost in cyberspace”. – Fairlane Web Consulting
At Fairlane Web Consulting we specialize in web design for your local business.
According to BrightLocal.com, 97% of consumers use the internet when researching local products and services!
In other words, if your customers can’t find you on the internet, they will spend their money with your competition. Your business website is the hub of your internet marketing strategy and needs to fulfill a few basic requirements – quickly.
- Tell the visitor exactly what the business sells or does.
- Give the visitor a reason to call or contact the business.
- Provide contact information quickly and easily.
Getting Your Local Business Noticed With Great Web Design
Let’s face it – there are only 10 spaces on each results page of Google.com. Not including the Google 3-Pack and the Adwords Ads, only 10 local businesses have a chance at a first page ranking. Simply being on the first page is hardly any guarantee of clicks or calls to your business. Click through rate (CTR) studies tell us that approximately 35% of clicks go to the top ranked website for a search term. Around 15% of clicks go to the second ranked website. Less than 10% goes to the third place website, and the remaining 40% is divided over the rest. You can see the studies HERE at moz.com.
Here are some characteristics of a good local business website:
- Inherently simple in design
- Easy to navigate
- Light on graphics and images
- Contact information prominently displayed
- Contact form on front page (preferred but appropriate to business)
- Technically correct to make search engines happy
- Relatively inexpensive to build and maintain
- Connect to primary social media (Google Business and Facebook)
- No flash animation
- Descriptive text – detail your products and services
- Responsive design for use on mobile devices (very important)
A local business website is a crisp, professionally-designed local lead machines designed exclusively to generate sales – and to be found by search engines. If you are looking for beauty, dramatic images and graphics, flash animation and a quirky but “lovable” design – we can’t provide that for you.
On Page SEO Works With Great Web Design
Not only does your business website need to have a clean, simple and crisp web design, it needs to be found on the internet. In our years of helping local businesses, we’ve learned that competent and focused on-page SEO can mean the difference between a successful business, and a local business that gets no calls.
- Consistent Name, Address & Phone Number for your business is critical
- Well-written pages describing your products and services
- Simple and easy page navigation
Unlike many Colorado Springs web design companies, every website we build is optimized for great on-page SEO. In fact, we often fix on-page SEO issues that other website designers create, so we know that not all web designers are created equal!
Our Local Web Design Is Turnkey
When we quote you a price for local web design, there is nothing left out. Nothing else to buy – no additional expenses. The only additional requirement is website hosting – somewhere for your website to live.
All Our Web Designs Are Responsive
From data we get watching traffic for our local website clients, up to 50% of your online visitors could be viewing your business website from a mobile device – a smartphone! Other viewers will be seeing your business website on personal computers, laptops and tablets in addition to smartphones. That means you will need a lot of differently-sized websites for each device – or just one business website that automatically sizes itself to the device it’s being viewed on! That’s called responsive design. Every one of our business websites is responsive right out of the box – each will size itself perfectly to the device it’s being viewed on. Standard equipment on every web design we do. No extra charge!
Speaking of Cost…
Many web design companies turn their noses up at the mere thought of an inexpensive website. Why is that? Most website designers would rather charge you $4,000, $5,000 – even $10,000 for a business website! We only change a fraction of that for a nice looking, great performing local lead generation website- with all the bells and whistles you need for top local search performance. Of course we will evaluate your individual business web design project and promptly give you a very attractive quote. Please tell us about your project HERE.
