3 Things You Should Know Before You Make a Website

Make a website

Before you contact to get your affordable small business website off the ground, there are some things that you should consider. If you’re preparing to take the plunge but not sure that all of your ducks are in a row, work your way through this list of what you should know before you make a website.

What You Think You Need Is Different

Some small business owners look at professional websites constructed by industry giants and think that their website needs to be the same. However, that’s not the case at all (and let’s face it, your local furniture shop is not directly competing with IKEA). Your first website needs to have the basics, like your hours, your services, pricing and contact information. When you make a website, be open to what is actually needed and what can be added in the future. We are digital marketing professionals, and we know exactly how to make your site shine without adding tons of fluff.

Think Carefully About Your Domain

If your business has a unique name, you might be in luck and be able to nab the domain that is most directly connected to the name of your business. However, if you have a commonplace name or your name is just a word, there’s a good chance you will need to pick a different domain. We can help guide you through the process of connecting your domain with your new website, but you will need to choose the right name for your business.

You Need a Partner has tons of experience creating mobile-optimized single page websites for small businesses. Many small businesses try to rely on low or no-cost services to build websites on their own. Unfortunately, many of those websites are riddled with typos, poorly designed and unable to load on cellular devices. The website that your small business has directly reflects on how professional you are. You would never return to a retail store with a broken front door, missing hours on the sign, no inventory displayed and no evidence of employees inside. Why should you expect customers to return to a website without hours, that doesn’t load on mobile, without a list of services and without any information on who works there? We are happy to be the preferred website designer for many local small businesses.
