Why Your Website Matters

‐ August 10, 2023

Remember the day when you needed something for your home or business and you just grabbed the yellow pages and there were a thousand pages of ads and listings?

When was the last time you saw a yellow-page book?

Today the search for help has shifted to the Internet. What was thousands of printed pages is now millions of pages with a quick Google search. Yet many businesses have not shifted their viewpoint to the importance of their company website.

Today the single most important asset of your business is your website. Your company website is the first impression a new prospective customer will have of your business.

Hiring a web designer is easy.  Communicating what you want to the web designer is often impossible for a business owner or management team to do. Why because it is overwhelming. What do I say? What do I include on the site? What pictures, graphics?

The purpose of this article is to simplify the process for you.

1. The purpose of your website is to cause a prospective new customer to call you. The vast majority of businesses have to have a live conversation with a customer to sell something. Your website has to be geared toward making that phone call happen.

2.  Looking at your business from a 3-foot back view, what do you do? Or more importantly, how do you help the customer?  How you help has to be put in a 5 – 6 word sentence that communicates instantly.

You see when a new visitor comes to your website they will make a decision literally in 2 to 3 seconds to stay and look more for what you do.

3.  They need to see easily where to go on your website to get information on your key products or services.

4.  When they go to a specific product or service page there should be enough information to get them interested enough to call. You should not use endless lines of copy. The page should answer the following questions:

  • What is it?
  • Why do I want it?
  • How will it help me?

Depending on your industry and market you should not put prices. You can and should however use a special offer, with a discounted price.  If you are selling a larger ticket item you probably will need to have a conversation with the prospect in order to provide a price.

5.  Use pop-ups with special offers and call-to-actions. If you were fishing this would be the proverbial bait on the hook. Special offers are a way to increase interest level to action.

6.  Make sure whoever designs your website puts your phone number everywhere. People should not have to look for your phone number. People who call are your hottest prospects. They have a question and want an answer. You want to make it easy for them.

To sum it all up your website is your communication method to the outside world. Rarely today will you get a new customer who has not researched what he needs on the Internet first before they call you.

A website design is not something most business owners should try to do on their own for 3 reasons; you don’t have the time, the know-how, or the tools to create an effective website. Just like with your business there is specific technology and tools you use to do what you do. Your website is too important to your business success today.

I hope this article helps you. If you need more information on creating a custom website for your business please call us. We can help.

    My business is located in Wisconsin and I have been a bit frustrated with my local design/print options. I was searching on youtube and came found the Wilson Print Marketing youtube page and I was impressed. I gave them a call and they assisted me in designing a remodeling dream book that I could send to interior designers and general contractors. I am so happy I reached out. The design is AMAZING and the print quality is top of the line. I am so impressed and they will be my go to company for all of my design/print needs.

    I just had a book of poems printed by Wilson Printing and they did more then a fine job! They did it fast and competitively prices as well. Their service is friendly and truly unbeatable. The Owner Mark Hale is top notch also-He listens to what you need and want-Is not robotic but genuinely interested in you and your requirements. I highly recommend this company.

    Wow, how refreshing. I saw the YouTube they put out on brochures and liked the information so well I looked up their phone number. I talked to Kelsi and she was so helpful and professional. Real professional company that I plan to align with.

    We recently were looking for an alternative for our printing needs. The staff at Wilson Printing helped me from design concept, pricing to fit our budget, difficultly with addresses, and etc. I could go on and on. Every question I had was researched and answered. They will walk you through the process and help you determine exactly what you need and work within your budget. You can not go wrong with them. It is family owned and operated and their customer service is 10 stars not just 5!!
