Hiring a website design and development company

Hire Grateful Web Services

Benefits to hiring a professional

Would you sell your home without the help of a realtor?  Can you even imagine having to pack, look for a new home, work, and then try to show your home and worry that you have all the paperwork in order?  The same is true for hiring a professional website company to handle your website related needs. How are you supposed to effectively run a business and in some cases start a business if you are trying to design and develop a website?  It is not a good use of a business owner’s time to try to set up a website that will serve as a very valuable tool for your business. Knowing how to delegate is an important skill for a business owner.

Many people think they can easily build their website through one of the many do-it-yourself options available. For a professional business that has plans for growth, this is a short-sighted solution. Many times, there is little room for changes in the template, and SEO or ADA is not taken in to account. Plus there is no one but you to lean on if anything goes awry. Remember, your website is often the first impression and might be the only impression a potential client has of your business. 

Value your time

The time spent trying to mess with putting together a website can be better spent growing your business.

While there are so many books, websites, and tools dedicated to building a website, it is important to know just how time-consuming the process of designing and implementing a website is. Many hours! If you’re running your own business, the time could have been used to actually work. A professional Web designer does this for a living and will not only build you a better product but also save you so much time and time is money when running a business!

Support

There is a lot of peace of mind knowing that if something goes wrong you can always call your website design company. You have a professional on the other end waiting to help you with whatever you need. Whether there is an issue that needs fixing or you need to add some new content, your web company is there to help. Grateful Web Services offers maintenance and we are always available for our clients if they need us. We take a lot of pride in building relationships with our clients and want to be here for you for the long haul. We are very proud to have quite a few long term clients.

Professional Impression

Perception is everything when it comes to reputation, and if your potential customers see a  link at the bottom of your websites like GoDaddy or Squarespace they may think you’re not truly professional business.  With the affordable price of domain names, hosting, and Web-design software, anyone can buy a website name and some space and put a site up claiming to be a real business. Investing in a  custom website for your business contributes to its legitimacy and professionalism.  

Custom Design

A professional Website company works with you to create a website that fits your needs. It will be designed with a unique branding solution that fits you and your business. There are many inexpensive templates available. These templates don’t stand out from countless websites already online. Many of these tools are so basic and have little flexibility for customization.  Often times they are not even built with Google’s requirements taken into consideration. 

 Responsive Web Design

With a high percentage of users using tablets and Smartphones, it is critical that your website is built to be compatible with the latest mobile technologies.

A high ranking on Google is critical to driving traffic to your website. If your website is not designed as responsive design, you will not be ranked on Google and will lose many visitors. Mobile search traffic is growing every month and if your website is not mobile-friendly, this is detrimental to your website.

SEO built in the Design

In order for Google to rank your website, they have certain requirements that need to be built into your design. A good website design and development company understands what Google requires and how to build your website accordingly.
