The clue is in the name. A web designer’s specialty lies in the design of the website. Now, don’t get me wrong, the design is a critical element and certainly provides the first WOW! when a human arrives at your site. However sexy does not necessarily mean successful at generating enquiries and customers – no matter how much sexy costs!
Most web designers know very little, if anything, about making a website Google friendly, so that dramatic first WOW! is irrelevant. Because, if she doesn’t understand what you do, then Google won’t send any visitors to your beautiful website.
However, if a visitor does find your site, that dramatic first WOW! may buy you a little time. But, if that visitor cannot find what they are looking for FAST, they will leave. You need to give them what they want while they are researching.
Your website is a tool to get more business. If you ignore Google and your target customer you will end up with no visitors, no enquiries and no customers.
