Skills My Arsenal To Destroy Your Competitors
A wide array of skills that your competition cannot match! Listed below you can find in detail all of the things that you can come to expect when I design a website for you!
Logo & Branding
Having your own custom logo is essential to having a brand. Logo & branding go hand in hand, but lets not get them confused for they are not one in the same. Your logo is going to be the image that people will see and know (hopefully) that it’s your company. When someone see’s your logo, they should know right away the type of business that you own, and if that’s not the message that’s being delivered, then it better be one of curiosity that creates viewers and prospective buyers from wanting to see what exactly your company is about.
I create powerful lasting logos. I tie in the type of business that you have and put all of that feeling, emotion and context into your logo. Then I focus on your brand, your brand is essentially everything summed up into one. The logo, the design, the words on the page, the pages themselves, the products or services that your offering. Then I morph everything together, spin it, mold it and create an everlasting impression. The moment that someone visits your site, they aren’t going to forget it. The logo, the design, the verbage is going to pop, stick, resonate.
Just think of one of the greatest commercials of all time… “The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup”. The reason that this commercial is/was so great is because it was EFFECTIVE. Effective in the sense that you cannot forget it. The tune is stuck in your head. The reason for it is because it is a powerful brand that was culminated with the company name, the product and a sweet melody. That’s what I’m going to do for you if you hire me. Just think of folgers in your cup.
If you already have a website, sometimes it just needs a facelift. Now a facelift can still be in the form of a complete reconstruction or partial. Sometimes just the landing page needs to be redone, some logos and branding, some of the context. I am not your typical web-designer. I don’t simply create the layout, I go further and design the pages, fill those pages with context (the insight needs to be provided by you) and reshape what you’ve already had.
Re-designing your website is a more cost effective method, this means you’ve already registered a domain, have a hosting account of your own and have content already residing on the page.
Building eCommerce sites can be painful. It’s also hard to drive traffic to some of them depending on the types of products that your selling. I’ve created several eCommerce sites, some selling Security Products, others selling various forms of electronics, vintage materials and so on.
One thing that has stuck out to me the most about eCommerce is that it’s not easy. It’s not easy because everyone is selling things, your going up against Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Live Auctioneers online, and then you have to compete with offline retailers like Walmart, BestBuy, Kohls and so on.
I’ve always tried to implement the best practices when creating all of my sites and this also applies here with eCommerce. Having live support features available, multi-option changer, easy one click checkouts, non-registering sites, makes it easier for your customers to shop and more likely that they will shop again. Also having features such as price matching and price checking so that your clients (up to you) can see that your items are beating or matching the competition.
Search engine optimization is critical to the success of your online business. Why? Because 95% of your visitors are going to probably be coming from google.com. If your website is optimized properly, meaning that all of the coding is proper, the context is relevant to the meta tags, you insert alt and img codes, build some backlinks, have a few content enriched articles, try to register a domain with longevity and so on (plus some secrets I won’t mention here) you can get ranked higher than your competition online.
Being ranked higher translates into additional visitors which almost certainly results in additional business for you.
Again, I’m not just a simple designer, I don’t just design or provide context, but I will also attempt to optimize your site to it’s fullest potential. This means that when I’m done, hopefully you have the best looking site in your field and your ranked higher than your competition.
This isn’t an overnight process and I’m not promising first page results. But depending on what type of business you own, it’s possible.
Being a web-designer or a webmaster means much more than being able to design unique layouts with great graphics. The most important part of being a webmaster is being able to dominate in every facet of your creation. Whether it be from the visual aspects that you and your visitors see, to the backend that your not really going to see that often. One of my best traits is being an innovator. Having the ability to incorporate new ideas and approaches into your field.
A prime example of one of my most innovate ideas recently was when I created the website www.elevatedfitnesscenter.com. This is a standard fitness gym, multi levels, with tanning beds and all of the workout equipment you might expect to see at any other gym. What could I do to set this company above the rest I thought to myself? And that’s when I realized it. By analyzing a gyms “buyer personas” I realized that there would be many individuals who would be impulsively searching for gyms in their area. Then I did a simple calculation that out of say 100 individuals who would visit the site, how many would actually turn up at the gym? I came up with various numbers, based on many different factors. Such as weigh, age and ethnicity.
One thing that I do understand is that there is such a thing as impulsive buying. And this can be translated to even a gym website. That’s when I came up with the idea to create online memberships where individuals could purchase there monthly or yearly access to the gym right then and there. And wouldn’t you know it, Elevated Fitness Center immediately started seeing paid signups through their website.
This is an example of innovation, and it’s only one example of many things that I have achieved with my own sites and the sites that I create for others. I always analyze the market that your in and try to take your company to the next step. How can I make you stand out? What can I do to make your profits increase? Your not just buying a design from me, your buying a game plan. And that game plan is to be the best in your field. Bigger, better, faster, stronger, whatever it may be, that’s my goal.
When I am finished building your website it will be extremely hard to find a competitor in the area that can match you. The reason for this is because I browse your competitors websites, evaluate what they are doing and ensure that my finished product is greater than theirs. Not just in the form of the design itself, but your domain name, the type of content you have and the modifications that I install.
My premium designs don’t just include the design and artwork, but also the page context, search engine optimization and company logo and branding.
When your competitors visit your newly launched website, they will in most cases find the link that is associated with my design at the bottom of your site and contact me to create them one similar in quality. I don’t do that. I don’t work for the competition. I am here to help you. So if there’s a business across the street or in the same 10-20 mile radius as you, rest assured I’m not going to be designing their sites for them.
