1.It’s A Car With No Engine
Imagine buying a fancy sports car. You meticulously research and save your money. You know you’ve crossed every “T”, and dotted every “I”. You go to pick it up from the dealership and drive her home, only nothing happens when you turn the ignition. You’re pissed! Now you have a fancy car that doesn’t do what it’s supposed to. DRIVE!
It’s the same with the traditional website design right now. You invest time and energy into creating something trying to be great, only by the time it launches things are missing, outdated or completely irrelevant. Updates and pages are educated guesses at best, and it really seems your website is just there because you need one, and not a valuable business tool. You turn your website ignition, and nothing happens like you thought it would.
Phew! Good thing we have our Growth-Driven Design services.
2. They Take Way Too Long
Let’s break this down into two scenarios for you.
Scenario 1: You build your website yourself. Use Wix, Squarespace, maybe Webflow if you’re feeling saucy. You have no idea how it use it well, and you spend hours and hours just trying to get non-important creative elements right. Before you know it, it’s been a month, you’re not happy with your site, but you need to get something up, so you go live anyway. SHAME!
Scenario 2: You’re a SMB business owner. You hire an agency to help build or redesign your website. Month’s roll by. One month it’s just copy, another month it’s just graphics, another month it’s video and creative. Rinse and repeat until 6 months ago by, you’re over budget and out of time. You launch the site. Things are okay, but as soon as you need something updated, your agency wants you fork over an expensive retainer or support fee. BOO!
3. They Might Make You Some Money, But They Don’t Save You Any
As a business owner, you daydream about ways you make more money. But let’s flip this around. Do you ever dream about ways you can save money?
Traditional web design is curated to get you more customers. And for the most part, they do. Sometimes. But it can be a valuable business tool to help you become more efficient internally, and save you some cold hard cash.
That’s why our methods include in-depth research into your target market, but also into your business. Could a well-developed and detailed FAQ page reduce phone calls so you can get rid of that receptionist that’s always late? That’s big time savings there, and equates to a faster ROI.
At the end of the day, you need a website. So why not make one that matters without busting your budget? Our growth-driven design services will do just that for you.
