Generation X, Millennials etc. We want to build a website that your future ideal customers will love, and position you as an authority in your respective industry.
What Kind Of Marketing Does Your Site Need?
You need to have a strategy that is always bringing you, quality customers, to your business that is actively shopping for your products and services, you basically need a funnel. So let’s think of the average customer that is shopping right now, what are they going to do, they are probably going to go on Google and search for the product or service that they need right now, once they hit enter, they are going to see all the top websites on the first page of Google, if your website is not among the top, then you are missing out on customers that could otherwise be yours.
Next is we do Facebook or Instagram ads where we target the right audience of people that are most likely going to be interested in your products or services, we run engagement campaigns to get them to know your brand first and once they are properly warmed up, then we run lead gen campaigns or sales campaigns to get them to convert. Consult with our digital marketing team and we will recommend the right platform for your specific business.
Are Websites Really Expensive?
Any time you spend money on your business it’s important to consider the return on investment that you are going to be making for your business so let's say you spend $2k-$2500 on your website, and you spend money on your Google ads, now your business generates 10k or 30k per month in revenue, does the initial $2500 you spent on your website look like a good investment? But if you spend $100 on your website can you really expect your business to produce 10k+ per month in revenue? Think of the type of return on investment whenever you are thinking about spending money for your business.
Can Your Website Really Make You Money?
A lot of our clients that get their website done by our Toronto web design team, also hire us to handle their online marketing campaigns. This helps them generate a lot of revenue from their websites and have a steady stream of customers coming into their business. Meaning that they get lots of leads and calls from their website and they turn those leads into 10k or even 40k per month in revenue depending on their closing rate and their marketing budget. Generally, the more you spend on your digital marketing, the more money you can make.
Google Suggested Best Practices
According to Google, it’s important to have a website that loads super fast, secure, with lots of content, reviews and videos as these are all taken into consideration when Google assigns a ranking for your specific website. You should have content added to your website on a monthly basis so that your rankings on Google are always going up rather than being stuck on page 50 of Google. It really depends on how ambitious you are with your business. Our Toronto web designers can also help implement various SEO strategies to help your website rank higher on Google.
Video Marketing For Your Website
Our Toronto web design team highly recommends having videos of your products or services on your website and even going as far as having the owners involved in the video as well because the people that come to your website for the first time, care about the actual people that run the business.
Be a part of your marketing and get people to learn more about you and your brand by leveraging video. On average video has much higher retention and is statistically shown to boost conversion rates on websites. If you are in need to video production, we have lots of industry friends who specifically specialize in working with businesses and producing quality videos that help your business boost sales.
Template Based Or Custom Coded
For small business owners that are family-run we recommend getting a template-based website that is customized to your business and for our enterprise-level clients that want custom development and lots of integrations, to choose a custom coded website so that we have 100% customization ability later on in the future. As the business expands and needs new features and integrations, our web development team can quickly modify your website as needed in the future.
Your 24/7 Sales Machine AKA Your Website
Your website is quite literally your own personal sales machine, if set up correctly with the right marketing strategy, you can see fresh new leads in your inbox of clients that are ready to book a meeting with you. Choose a reputable web design company in Toronto to build you a top-notch website that is going to help you close 80% or more of your business.
Not All Toronto Web Designers Are Created Equal
Apart from having a good-looking website, it’s important to have a digital marketing strategy in place to actually have your website get found by your future ideal customers, this could mean the use of Google ads, SEO or even Facebook or Instagram ads. You need to hire a Toronto website designer that actually knows how to do digital marketing as well. Because websites are in fact useless without the marketing strategy to help you get more customers to scale your business.
Monthly Website Optimizations
When we run online marketing campaigns either on Google or Facebook & Instagram, we are constantly testing out which pages on your website bring in the most conversions. We are always running tests to see which landing pages perform best for your campaigns and keep this data in mind when we look at how we can improve other pages on your website to boost the overall conversion rate of the site as a whole.
Are Websites Really Expensive?
It really depends how you look at it, at first all of our clients said to us that spending money on their website and marketing is a lot on their wallet, but after the first month once they started to get a taste of what the return on investment was for their money, they realized the true value of the investment and this is why we keep customers for many many years inside of our agency.
