Welcome to Cubed360! You are considering having a new website built for you or revising the one you all ready have. We would like to help you in that process. Here are some things that you should consider when making that all important decision about building a website:
1. Your website is an electronic brochure or storefront for your company. It is your opportunity to market your services or products to potential customers as well as demonstrate both a professional image and brand name
2. A well designed website will be easy to navigate, easy on the eyes, not too wordy and quick to provide the information your visitor is looking for. It will help your business generate revenue.
3. A website’s page speed is critical to a successful customer experience. According to surveys, nearly half of web users expect a website to load in two seconds or less and they tend to quickly abandon a website taking more than three seconds.
4. Mobile devices account for 60% of all Internet usage, and over half half of all mobile searches have a “local intent”, meaning the person is looking for a nearby business. Statistically, nearly 75% of smartphone users will abandon a website unless it is mobile friendly. A mobile friendly (responsive) site automatically adjust the website's layout to the various screen sizes of mobile devices.
Regretfully, less than 20% are designed to be "responsive". Is yours?
The investment required to design and develop a professional looking and efficient website is determined by how sophisticated and robust your business needs are, which in turn drives the overall requirements of the website.
Ninety eight percent (98%) of the small businesses in the U.S. (with 1 to 19 employees) only need a basic and simple $200 to $500 responsive (mobile friendly) website. Typically such websites have an "About Us" section, a "Products and/or Services" section and a "Contact Us section". Many small businesses can accomplish this with a simple one-page website which cost about $200. Other small businesses may have a broader set of requirements, such as needing an e-commerce system, specialized search engine optimization, content management services, pay-per-click advertising management and social media management.
If you are a larger business then you website may require a large customer database, an online store coupled to an inventory management system, a recurring billing system or other sophisticated web system components that interface with back-office software. Large web system such as these may cost several thousands of dollars to build.
Regardless of whether you are needing a website for a small or large business, you should first establish a clearly defined set of goals.
Cubed360 can help you to establish a reasonable and achievable set of website goals. They should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-tied (SMART). Regardless of your business size, creating these SMART goals will help you maximize the return on your website development costs.
