Web Design and Development

Your website should be more than a business card.

If you want a website to accomplish some things like lead generation, prospect nurturing, and driving more targeted traffic from search and social – you’ve come to the right place! Hint: if you just want an online “business card,” we’re probably not a good fit for you. We believe your website is one of the most important sales members of your team, and every page is an employee: each should have a goal (a job to do) and a way to get it done! That’s how we approach web design and development.

“I have literally looked at THOUSANDS of websites. Please do yourself a favor and do it right. It’s not just about the information you send out or how pretty it is. Every single page MUST have a goal and the tools to do it. Consider this: if you don’t get results from your website, if you’re like most professionals, you consider it a loss. The better you answer the questions your website’s viewers have in their minds when they get to your website, in other words, the better you can solve their problems before they’ve even talked to you, the better results you’ll enjoy.”

~ Tiffany Youngren, Founder of OMH Agency

Our 10 Commandments for a Great Website

There is even more that you can do with your web design, development, and overall web decisions than what is listed here, but all 10 of these items are very important. If you’re on board with the following “commandments,” let’s talk more about next steps.

1st Commandment:

KNOW WHETHER YOU OWN OR RENT.

If you pay any amount every month for your website, you probably rent (with a few exceptions). That means if at any time you want someone else to do cool marketing things from your website, or if you want to take your website elsewhere, no-can-do. It’s one of our biggest pet peeves. Please own your website if possible – you paid for development, it’s your content, and set up to make money for you. You should own it. Well, sometimes we fudge on this for sales funnels….

2nd Commandment:

HAVE A CLEAR GOAL.

Every piece of your marketing, from TV spots, radio and print ads, social media pages and posts, and other marketing all  refer and link to your website. Then what? Did you really pour your time and money into an online business card? Please expect more from your web design!! Leverage what should be your most valuable online asset it to get leads, nurture clients, encourage referrals, and get sales. Invest what you need to, and consider each page as a valued employee with a goal and a way to accomplish it.

3rd Commandment:

KNOW  YOUR AUDIENCE.

Knowing your audience is extremely important at every phase of marketing and sales. Because your website is often the first introduction you’ll get to someone new to your brand, it is crucial that you not only know – but express –  the problem you’ll solve, the solution, and the benefit to the client. “The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.” Peter Drucker.

4th Commandment:

HAVE BRAND STANDARDS.

Your brand matters. Regardless of how your visitors get to your site, they should experience consistent branding across the web design. Big brands put millions of dollars into building their brands – so investing a few thousand into solid brand standards is money well spent. We’re not trying to sell  you something here – we don’t work directly with you to develop brands, but there are some amazing companies who do. If you aren’t directly in touch with one, we can discuss options.

5th Commandment:

MAKE IT RESPONSIVE.

How important do you think it is that people can comfortably and quickly view AND use  your website on mobile devices? According to Statista, as of 3rd quarter, 2017, 75% of the US population were actively browsing the internet from their mobile device. So, it’s pretty important. Technology today allows us to build a website that is “responsive,” making it mobile-friendly across a variety of devices. It takes a bit of the precise web design control out of your hands, but opens a world of opportunity towards viewership – which is a must.

6th Commandment:

NAIL ABOVE THE FOLD.

On your home page, the first thing your visitors see before scrolling (“above the fold”) should tell them exactly what you want them to do and make it super easy for them to do it. If you want their email address, include that call to action at the top. Sites where you want the visitor to “feel” like he/she is right there at your place of business, integrate that into this section. Blog posts should get right into the meat of it before scrolling, as should most interior pages – most people won’t scroll far.

7th Commandment:

FOCUS ON THE BENEFITS.

A good exercise is to write down a list with 3 columns: problem, solution, benefit. Take a problem that your customer is facing, the solution that you have to offer him, and the benefit he will enjoy by using your solution. Your website should be FULL of this (as should your marketing in general). Website visitors don’t want to see you go on and on about your favorite service or product features. “We’re great because…” “Our …. is the best because it has ….” They want to know that you understand their problem, have a solution – but most importantly, how will their lives look afterwards.

Website Design and Development - Get a Good Flow

8th Commandment:

DEVELOP GOOD FLOW.

When you know that you need a new website, you might be tempted to copy and paste everything from your old site. To develop a highly effective website, care should be taken to guide the visitor into taking action. It costs more time and money to develop the storyline and writing, but it will improve your site’s success rate. You’ll also want to make sure that someone is watching the analytics and adjusting the site for better performance. If this is done by an agency – give them the green light to run with testing and trying things so your site’s performance improves over time.

9th Commandment:

INTEGRATE EMAIL AND SOCIAL.

From the front page to the back, each web page is a potential landing page. If someone looks up “how to update a WordPress website” on a search engine, the first page they’ll see of our website is our blog post outlining how to update  your WordPress website – not our home page. So every blog post has a lead capture integrated into our email campaign system. You can also add “Click to Tweet” and social share links on blog posts and feature Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds. Of course – never forget to include links to your social profiles on the headers, footers, and Contact page.

Website Design and Development - Technical Details

10th Commandment:

TECHNICAL DETAILS.

This is where I start to geek out about things that you may not want to hear about, but they are CRUCIAL to the success of your website!! As much as you’re eyes are glazing over right know, understand that these things are important. Details like on page SEO, Schema mark-up, image optimization, caching, HTML/CSS/JS minimization. Most important of all is having an SSL (“https://” not “http://”) website. If you can go as far as investing in AMP pages and advanced schema, your website will rank higher and higher as these details improve.

We’ll check it for you.

Common first looks address Top of Fold on the home page, the SSL, mobile responsiveness, and a clear call to action.

Keep the Main thing the Main Thing

You have a message to get across – but it does no good unless you’re speaking to the visitor in the way they want to hear it. You want the person who is on your website to first trust you, then feel like you’re trying to help them, and finally make it as clear as possible – as early as possible – what their next step is.
