Every business these days would do well to embrace the digital era and all that comes with it.  That being said, though most business owners seem to understand this on the surface, they rarely grasp everything that is available.One excellent example of this is a Mobile App.  If your company isn’t currently providing its customers with a mobile app, then you are giving up a huge competitive advantage.  For those who aren’t yet convinced of what mobile apps have to offer, you should consider some of the benefits. You’re always within arm’s reach Just about everyone has a smartphone these days and the majority of us take them everywhere we go.  This means your company currently has an unrivaled opportunity to never leave your customers’ side.One of the best parts about having an app for your customers is that you get to

On the outside, DIY web building solutions advertise having lots of choices, great looks, and easy operation (some of which are actually true). Sadly, until you buy in, do you discover the limitations and lackluster of a site made with a DIY builder. Under The Hood Behind the scenes, these websites crafted with DIY builders are riddled with massive code bases in an effort to support anything you may throw at it in terms of content on your website. This often means more errors, slower page load speeds, and an underperforming user experience.Using a DIY website builder often means you have a lot of control over virtually endless options available to you…This may sound great, but what if you don’t need those “endless” options? Unfortunately, you can’t just disable these options and have them disappear into outer space. They are still there

The experience your potential customers have while browsing your website can make or break their decision to invest in your product or services.  These days, people want information, and they want it fast.  Website Performance Website performance is a hugely important topic, so much so that the big companies of the Web are obsessed with it.  For the Googles, Yahoos, Amazons and eBays, slow websites mean fewer users, which results in less happy users resulting in lost revenue and reputation.If your website is your main source of revenue, then it makes sense to pay for the best hosting you can get, because it’s going to have a direct impact on how much money your business makes. What Causes This Poor Performance? There are a few issues that factor into poor website performance.  One of the biggest reasons has to do with being hosted on

As the owner of a company, you want your business to uniquely stand out to your potential client base.  If you can set yourself apart from the rest of the companies that are similar to yours, you are much more likely to garner clients. Tailored To You In order to do grab attention, you need a website that is tailored specifically to your potential clients, your company and your message.  You can’t really do that with a DIY website builder.  This is because these builders have templates. One Size Just Doesn't Fit All Customization is ALWAYS required because no matter how much you may like the look of a template, there is always some feature that doesn’t quite meet your needs.  You can spend more time trying to fit into or change a template than developing a site from scratch.  If you do happen

 You’ve worked hard to build your business.  Now all you want is to get it out there for everyone to see.  The best way to reach as many potential clients as possible is through building an informative, user friendly web site.  While you may want to save money, a DIY website builder is not the best way to do that. Time & Effort You’re taking the time and effort to create a site.  Clearly, it’s yours, right?  Wrong!When you use a DIY site builder, whatever content you put on it for your business is no longer yours, even though you created it and you paid for it.  It’s even in the terms and conditions portion of the agreement that you have to click to accept (and unfortunately, many do not read through these terms). Terms & Conditions Many of the DIY builders have terms such as

Occasionally, we speak with business owners who do not fully understand the difference between a professional web design service and “DIY” service.  As a business owner we understand the costs that go into running a business such as accounting fees, equipment costs, leasing, payroll, rent, marketing and infrastructure.  Being tempted to have a crack at designing your own website might seem like a good idea at cutting costs out of your bottom line. Should you build your own web site?  Maybe… but probably not! It all comes down to putting your time into what will generate the greatest return.  The short answer;  if you want your customers to take you seriously, or actually get inquiries from your site, you need to enlist the services of a professional. Here’s why… Let’s assume you have already created a logo.  If you were to design the website
