Website Design

Looking for a website that works?

If you're serious about growing your business you need a strong web presence with a good digital marketing strategy. Whereas in the past you may have reached for the Yellow Pages when you needed a product or service, now you reach for the phone (or computer) and do a Google search. After all, how did you find yourself here?

The starting point of a strong web presence is a professional website. But what should a professional website have?

What should your web design include?

To most people, good website design is something that looks great and is easy to use; but there is a lot more to good web design. Some of the other factors you should consider are:

  • Is it a responsive website design? Does it look great and work well on a desktop computer and a smartphone; not to mention all screen sizes in between?
  • Does it have an SSL certificate? Is the website address secured as an HTTPS instead of the normal HTTP? Does the web browser show the secured padlock in the address bar?
  • Does the website design load fast? Does your web design load quicker than 2-3 seconds?
  • Does your website have a CMS (Content Management System) allowing you to easily make changes to your website?
  • Is your website structured for search engine optimisation? Is it structured in a way that makes it easy for Google to understand what your website is about and how to rank it?
  • Does your website design provide a good User Experience (UX)? Can a website visitor easily navigate the web design and find what they are looking for?
  • Do you have clear "Call to Actions" on your website? Marketing 101 is "tell the prospect what you want them to do"; does your website design do this?
  • "Content is King"; does your website design and structure allow you to add new content regularly?

Now we can probably add a few more considerations here, but you get the idea. Don't just go for a web design that looks great; not if you want it to actually bring customers into your business. Unfortunately, most business websites are just that (and in some cases don't even look great), failing to add anything of value to the business.

Remember marketing should be treated as an Investment, not a cost. You invest your money on a website and in return expect it to deliver customers to your business. This is your "Return on Investment" (ROI), and like all investments, often you need to invest more to get more.

Is a great website design all you need?

In a word, NO. Let's consider how a website works as a marketing tool by comparing it to a traditional marketing tool; the flyer.

A website is the same as a flyer. It doesn't matter how great it looks if no-one sees it.

In other words, there is no point in having a great-looking flyer if you only display it on your business premises to people who already know you. You need to look at ways to get your flyer in front of new people who've never heard of you before. This might be through letterbox drops, trade shows, displaying them in related businesses or maybe even advertising a version of it in a newspaper or magazine. 

Well, a website is exactly the same. There is no point in having a great looking web design if all you do is publish it on the internet and then expect people to somehow find it. The harsh reality is the only people who will find it are those that already know you and know your website address.

So how do you get new people to see your website design?

There are essentially 2 ways to get people to see your website:

  • Attract visitors to your website - this is achieved through Search Engine Optimisation and Search Engine Marketing (Adwords), where you increase the chances of people finding your site when they do a search.
  • Send visitors to your website - this is achieved through strategies such as Display Advertising, Social Media Marketing, Referrals (Online Directories, other website referrals etc) and offline advertising campaigns promoting your website (Radio, TV Ads, Brochures, Signage etc).
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We're discussing website design, not digital marketing. Just as long as you understand that a website design should only be the start of an ongoing marketing campaign. Much like the flyer is just the beginning.

    In 2009 we were looking to develop a website for our business, Haddon Kitchens and Cabinets. Not quite knowing where to start, we received a very positive referral from one of our suppliers about a company called Probity Web Marketing. After the initial meeting with Jarrod we felt comfortable with the idea of what the website could do for our business. Numerous discussions followed with lots of input from both sides and before long our new website was up and running.

    We quickly realised that websites need frequent monitoring to keep the content fresh and active, so we now have Probity Web Marketing working on our website on a regular basis. The results are very pleasing with the traffic to our website increasing but more importantly we are getting more conversions to our ‘Get a Quote’ forms.

    We’re very happy with what is being done for us and have found Jarrod to be extremely good with ideas and advice, as well as being approachable and always trustworthy with our information.

    Well done Probity Web Marketing.

    I have been using the team at Probity Web Marketing for a few years now. For the first time ever we have seen page 1 results on Google, what is more impressive is that the industry I am in is one of the most competitive in the country. (Sydney Plumbers) Thanks Jarrod, I would definitely recommend the results don't lie.

    Fallon Services has had a website for many years now that seemed to just tick over. With the growth of the Internet and the increasing cost of Yellow Pages and other marketing channels, a decision was made to start focussing on increasing our lead generation with the website. Our first attempt at this was with an Adwords company. This successfully drove traffic to our website, but we weren't happy with the conversion of this traffic to sales. When this was discussed with our Adwords Company, they blamed our old, tired website. At about this time, Jarrod at Probity Web marketing was referred to me.

    At our first meeting, I was confident that Jarrod knew what he was talking about, so got him started on building us a new website. This had an immediate effect to the number of webforms completed on our site. He then started an Optimisation Program that we have been continuing with for over 12 months now. This has had great results and we are getting more and more leads from our website. In fact, it is now our number one source of leads (after repeat business) and at a lower cost of acquisition to the others.

    I find Jarrod not only knowledgeable, but also extremely helpful. During this time, he has not only optimised our site, but has also made any changes to the site that we have requested. I have no hesitation recommending him to other businesses that are serious about growing their Internet Marketing.
