But while WordPress is simple and taken the work out of making a site, the one thing that you still have to do, planning behind your site.

For your site to be an effective business tool, it must reflect the core goals and missions of your company. Whereas many of us start the planning of a site by looking at the available WordPress themes and letting those designs sway our decisions, we really need to be starting from a more strategic point of view and making decisions about themes, plugins etc, based on the bigger picture.

1) What are the values and overall mission of your company?

fundamentally your website must be a reflection of the driving force behind your business. What are you trying to convey? What is it about your business that keeps you motivated to run it every day?

What are the business goals of the company?

Who are your desired clients?

Provide a certain service or make a certain product and do that well. So focus on catering to the customers you really want to attract to ensure you are building a business and client base that will serve its purpose.

What do you want visitors to do at your site – your call to action?

 

Clear serving your purposes precisely. The more clear your sense of direction, the better result you will get out of your site.

Websites mean local business

Pinguis Website Design

Even if you’re primarily have a business based on location i.e. a shop, having a solid web site can mean more business. Local client often perform searches online and find your web site, contact details etc, encouraging them to walk into your stop.

If they find your competitors and they look more reputable or have a more solid presence on the web than yours or if they have a web site and you don’t, you are losing business, because of your web site or lack of one. And, if you are mentioned in the media or on review sites, you’ll need a web site to help people find you.
Contact us we design great websites at very low prices.

Local business owners

spend a lot of time thinking about Search Engines, and how to use them to get better results on their sites.
We guarantee page one results with search terms and will get your business found.

Remember that a search is not just a search. A slow search loses customers. Surveys continually show you have 4 seconds or less to capture or keep someone’s attention on the web. This means slow does not work for business
