Website Marketing Solutions for small to medium businesses in the Gold Coast
Gold Coast website design: There are plenty of web designers on the Gold Coast who can put together a website for you in no time. But be careful not to end up with a website that looks great but doesn’t perform.
How do you decide which web designer to go with?
- Do you choose a web designer who is located nearby on the Gold Coast?
- Do you go with a price that you feel is right for your budget?
- Do you choose by looks -perhaps the designer uses lots of images or image sliders?
It’s more important to get the right website for your business.
What you pay for a website should be guided by what you expect in return. If you buy a website that looks great but has little content, it will not convert visitors into customers.
Although images and graphics are part of marketing, they are a small part and the easiest to provide. They should be there to support good quality content not override it.
Recent studies show that only 10% of visitors were interested in how a site looked.
