And other myths about websites. In-depth solutions to drive traffic to your site
It's Not Just About Design :
Made In Tacoma can help you get traffic to your site, and turn visitors into CUSTOMERS.
Here are few common myths about websites with some in-depth solutions Made In Tacoma can offer you to help your website make you money.
Myth #1: If You Build it, They Will Come...
All you have to do is build a website and traffic will flock to it. Who needs promotions? Simply get online with a website and the traffic will find you.
The Truth :
Having a site on the Web doesn't mean you'll automatically reach millions of customers, any more than having a book in publication means you'll automatically reach millions of readers. There may be millions of people on the Internet right now, but you'll have to promote your site through announcements, ads, directory listings, e-mail, links on other sites, and off-line publicity before you'll attract a lot of visitors. Made In Tacoma can help. We offer not only great designs, but also keyword placement, search engine submission, and PPC management.
Myth #2: Set it....and Forget it....
Early in the Internet experience, it seemed many businesses and individuals believed that simply having a website was adequate to be successful.
The Truth :
Web sites aren't like print or billboard ads, where you're married to a particular design and information package for months on end. When we see sites that haven't changed in months, we wonder whether or not the company is still in business. There are too many new Web sites appearing daily for most Net surfers to return again to sites that never change.
Your Web site had better change at least monthly. Plan for change when you plan the site, Made In Tacoma can offer managed hosting solutions, updates, and re-designs to help keep your site fresh and working for you.
Myth #3: I only offer a service, I don't sell any products, so I don't need a website.
Some people think only businesses who sell products could benefit from the Internet.
The Truth :
In truth, it is quite rare to find a business that could not benefit in some way from having a website. Some universal applications include email addresses, company contact information, listings of products and services, as well as brand recognition. Made In Tacoma, can not only get you a great looking, fast loading site, we can also get visitors to your site, and thus get you the phone calls that make money for you!
Myth #4: The more graphics (pictures) the better.
I want tons of Flash design, and images, backgrounds, that change with every click of the mouse......Why?
The coolest, most high-tech sites on the Web are worthless if visitors with older browsers can't tell what they are or how to navigate them. Even interested site visitors won't wait to see what you're offering if they have to stumble over too many minute-long downloads as images load. Especially in geographical areas where high-speed access is not yet available. You want to use flash? Have an option for a low band-width connection as well, or have an html only version of the site, so people can avoid the large downloads and long wait times to view your products and learn about your business. Made In Tacoma believes in fast loading sites, we cross browser check each and every page of your site, and test it on dial-up as well as DSL and cable modems, to ensure that your site is capable of reaching a broader audience.
