Think about this for a moment.
You are a designer. You design a website that is timely and serves as a successful marketing communications tool for your client. Your client is super happy. Hurray! Then 4 or 5 years later people look at it and think it’s a reflection of your current design offerings. Wrong! The Internet changes at a phenomenal rate, technology changes, programming languages, and what about growth? New web-based products are developed and launched every day. And don’t forget design trends also change. So don’t let someone tell you your 5 year old website is no good. It was great. It’s just time for a new one.
Do you look professional? Maybe it’s time to consider a website upgrade.
Make sure you stay current so that your organization always looks professional. Maybe it’s time to consider a website upgrade. We develop websites in WordPress using a Genesis framework. WordPress started as just a blogging system ten years ago, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets and themes, and Genesis provides a secure and search-engine-optimized foundation.
Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power their websites. WordPress is infinitely extensible. One of the core philosophies of WordPress is to keep the core code as light and fast as possible but to provide a rich framework for the huge community to expand what WordPress can do, limited only by their imagination.
Do-It-Yourself Website Builders
There have been a lot of free-trial do-it-yourself website builder sites come along in the last 10 years. Can you build one yourself? Possibly. Will it be easy? Probably not as easy as they advertise. Will there be a learning curve? Always. Will it be secure? Hmm… What level of support will they offer you? How long has the company offering it been around and how many have come and gone before them? Will they still be there in 5 years? Do they have actual people you can meet with? Will they help you with SEO and ranking in Google searches? Troubleshooting when things go wrong?
Don’t forget to consider the big picture. A website is just one tool in your marketing toolbox.
Most importantly, do you have the graphic design, communications, and marketing background to make it a successful marketing communications tool? There’s a little more skill and experience involved beyond simply having the tools. The bottom line is your website, and all of your marketing collateral, is a reflection of your level of professionalism.
