According to the Small Business Council there are 28 million small businesses in the US representing more than 99% of all employers. With that kind of competition it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. One way to put your best foot forward and shine is to have a well designed, purpose driven, aesthetically pleasing, modern, responsive website.

Expectations

These days it’s simply expected that your business have a web presence. Whether you’re operating a dog grooming business, an ice-cream stand or a law firm, people WILL look for you online. You need to control your online presence in lots of ways including your Google business listing, social media presence and importantly, your website. Even if it’s a simple “We exist. Find us here” website its better than nothing.

But I already have a website

Even if you have an existing website it needs to be well designed, modern and most importantly look great on a number of different devices, especially mobile devices. Mobile browsing has quickly taken over desktop browsing. According to StatCounter GlobalStats almost 56% of browsing is conducted on a mobile or tablet device. If your site doesn’t function correctly on a mobile device, you’re loosing customers! Users are quick to abandon a poor mobile experience.

DIY vs. Developer/Designer

If you’re technically inclined you could go it alone and create your own website. Some of today's website creation services make it fairly easy to do with just a little knowledge, but it's also easy to get it wrong and ruin that beautiful template once you start building out your ideas.
