Capitalizing on Web Traffic

Posted in Blog Messages with tags , , , , , on November 21, 2009 by Running Deer

My path taken as a website designer has taken many turns. Things change fast in the Internet – tech world. I still look at web design as an art form, however, websites and blogs serve a purpose – to help entrepreneurs express their niches and drive interested traffic through their sites to make sales. So as a result, my creativity has extended into the arena of strategy as well. Search Engine Optimization is important and I am having fun incorporating wordpress blogs into the plan. Exciting times!

WordPress blogs look great without a lot of fuss, yet you can do creative things with banners and custom CSS programming. The other thing I like about WordPress blogs is clients can be empowered to govern their own content instead of spending large amounts of money having the designer code it. (It’s not fun for the webmaster either).

Also, with WordPress blogs, entrepreneurs can get expanded exposure to traffic though Google searches if it is done right.

I can help people do this. I want to help people build their business, not just their website!


The Importance of a Skilled Web Designer

Web design is not a skill everyone has, yet having a website that serves as an Internet small business is rapidly becoming the norm.

There are many who put up a website on their own, hire a friend or even a professional website developer, only to find that nobody visits the site and no money is being generated.  Meanwhile, much money has been spent, the business owner doesn’t know code, the web designer left town and resentment sets in.

An ideal web developer will design a visually pleasing expression of your business that is easily navigable by customers. Visitors are lead to landing pages for products that they purchase.  Business owners should be empowered to pick up the reigns and manage content on their own without investing in the hourly rate of the designer to do it. And, the designer should be up to date on the currency of Search Engine Optimization – keywords and strategies to get customers to your site.

I provide this and can even host your site!
