Save Money with Professional Website Design

By | Website Design | No Comments

Yes, you read that title right. Along with saving money in the long run, professional website design with Charternet Web Solutions offers more than just a dynamic new look. Here are 5 benefits to professional website design:

  1. Making a better first impression. Putting your best foot forward is the key to attracting business. It takes about 50 milliseconds (that’s 0.05 seconds) for users to form an opinion about your website, which determines whether they like your site or not, whether they’ll stay or leave.  Is your website currently a bit of a mess? You could be loosing customers (and money) because of it.
  2. Less glitches and better browser compatibility. With a professional website design, your website would glide seamlessly through different browsers and devices with a lot less glitches and bugs or managing different sites for mobile and desktop. This will decrease the load time of your site making it easier for you to put for best foot forward (see point 1).
  3. Increased rankings in search engines. A professional website design coupled with excellent SEO services is the BEST route to go for the best rankings. However, just a professional website by itself can increase your rankings as well. The updated site ensures the code markup is clean and easy to read – great for search engines who crawl your page like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  4. Mobile friendliness. Since mobile searches surpassed desktop searches this year, being mobile friendly is more important than ever.In addition to the stats listed in the infographic above, Google announced starting April 21st, 2015 that search results for mobile-friendly websites in their search engine will change dramatically. It all boils down to if you don’t have a website that displays properly in a mobile device, Google may not rank your site well (or at all ) in their mobile search results.
  5. THE BIG ONE – SAVES YOU MONEY! The advantages of having a single site that conforms to the need of all devices are significant when compared to having two separate websites. One website costs less than two, and the savings can be substantial. Sites designed solely for mobile device traffic don’t offer the advanced navigational techniques found in traditional websites, and they also require you to maintain two separate web addresses for your site. This is inconvenient for most people and can cause them to check out the competition’s website.

Your website is the first source of information your target audience looks for when researching your services so don’t risk it – make sure it mirrors just who you are. By combining almost two decades of experience in the marine industry and knowledge of the latest in website design, Charternet Web Solutions has been converting customer’s websites into gold mines.

Is your website capturing the spirit of your business?

Does your site capture the spirit for your business? Are you sending the right vibe and attracting the right customers? A website redesign can dramatically change your business for the better. Just ask Jeanne from See & Ski Powerboat Rentals

“Many thanks to the Charternet team for capturing our vision in the design of our new website. The team really ‘caught’ See & Ski’s VIBE. The process of creating the site was exiting, professional and fun. Their guidance in keeping us current and on the cutting edge of internet marketing and interactive web design is invaluable. We love our new site and have been receiving exciting feedback and results since its launch!!!”

The process started with Jeanne realizing she needed to meet Google’s latest standards with a mobile friendly, responsive site but she also saw this as an opportunity to ensure her website conveyed the fun, exciting vibe her customers experience on the water with See & Ski!

On the fence about updating your site? Here are 3 more reasons to make sure your website conveys the right message & should be updated:

  1. Search engines love updated sites. Once your website overhaul is complete, search engines reward those redesigned sites with higher rankings. This coupled with excellent SEO services can increase your business dramatically.
  2. A properly targeted, updated site will give you customers a reason to come back. If they like what they see they are more likely to return! Updating your site with a modern design and current messaging will increase traffic and your opportunity to convert site visitors into customers.
  3. Track your website’s performance & fix what is not working. High bounce rates, abandoned shopping carts? Learn what is working and what isn’t on your site. Use the redesign to correct errors and add that “something special” that is missing to draw in a whole new type of customer.
