SEO Website Design
Affordable Websites for Small Businesses
Because It’s Time To Get Noticed Online!
Do you need a website for your small business, which allows you to show off your products and services at an affordable price? Don’t hire an expensive programmer and graphic designer to create one for you until you are aware of the other, more cost-efficient solutions out there.
Benefits of my services:
Hiring a programmer and graphic designer to build a site from scratch is likely to be very expensive. If you use a content management system (CMS) such as WordPress or Joomla then building this site becomes a lot more affordable – especially when you take advantage of the thousands of affordable themes out there, allowing you to develop a very unique, professional website for a fraction of the cost programmers will charge.
Easy to Manage:
Will you be able to easily manage and update your site as needed? Using one of the easy to use systems above, the task of managing your website becomes a breeze. You want the ability to easily update your website to reflect seasonal trends, news about your company, discounts and other holiday offers. Don’t get locked into a website where you will have to continually pay someone to manage these updates for you.
Search Engine Optimized:
Let’s face it. There is no point in spending money to create a website if nobody can find it. Many website designers know very little about search engine optimization – or advise you to seek out an SEO after your website is built. The truth is, to get a well optimized website you need to hire an SEO during the building and planning stages of your website. The SEO can develop the appropriate site architecture and work with you on optimizing the images and copy during the building stages – then provide ongoing services or a roadmap you can use to continually optimize your site.
What about Hosting?
Hosting is much cheaper than you think. Services like Hostgator (my host, who I highly recommend using) allow you to host your website for under $10 a month. Don’t get stuck with a “Build and Host Your Site” solution that charges you excessive hosting costs and offers basic “build it yourself” templates that…well let’s just say it – look like crap. I can install and build the site on your Hostgator account for you and you can avoid needless fees.
I build professional websites for clients using WordPress or Joomla. I first speak to you about your goals with the site, the style you are looking for, and the products or services you offer. I then work with you to find a theme or template that matches with your services and preferred style choice.
Once an appropriate theme is discovered, and I know more about your business and your goals, I perform keyword research to ensure your site is properly set up to attract targeted visitors and leads. I use these keywords in the building stages when planning out your sites hierarchy, and other on-page optimization tactics.
Once the basic foundation is set up, I can create compelling optimized content for you, or you can provide me with the copy (text) you want.
I can then provide you with instruction and a roadmap on how to perform basic search engine optimization strategies on your own, to improve your search engine rankings and traffic over time – or can work with you month to month on an optimization strategy tailored to suit your needs.
Other things we can discuss during the building process:
Local optimization is a bit different from “search engine optimization” as it allows your website to be displayed in Google Places – which often lists the 10 most relevant sites at the top of search results, and also allows your business to be displayed within Google Maps. If you have a local site, this is an added service you will want to consider.
Blog Design & Setup:
Having a blog on your website will help you optimize your website, bring in more traffic and increase your online presence – allowing you to network with other thought leaders in your industry or answer common questions your customers may have. I will work directly with you discussing how a blog can be incorporated into your website, and provide you guidance on how to use your blog effectively.
Link Building Strategies:
Link building is one of the most important factors in SEO. Link building needs to be done carefully, to ensure you are not breaking rules that may get your website banned or penalized. Link building must also be performed carefully to ensure you are targeting the appropriate sites, and to get the most value out of the time you put in it. I can work with you to develop a customized on-going strategy you can implement on your own, or handle this for you on a month to month basis.
