Mobile Friendly Website

Mobile Friendly Website
Your small business website must be mobile friendly. With today’s technology there isn’t a need to create a mobile only website alongside a desktop friendly website. Instead look towards a mobile responsive website. This will reduce the amount of time you have to spend updating the website and make it a seamless user experience regardless of their device.

Call To Action Button

Ok, so you’ve got the traffic to your website and they can view the content on their mobile device. The next step is engaging your potential customer with a call to action. It should be easy to recognize and provide useful content in relation to your business specifically. Maybe it’s a simple “Call Now” tagline or “Free Quote” button. It should stand out from your other content but not overpower the user. We all remember those flashing buttons from the 90s.

Social Media Friendly

Social Media Friendly
Have your shared your website on social media? What does it look like? Is the Facebook preview pulling relevant information from the website including an image? Facebook reported that in the third quarter of 2017 they had 2.07 billion monthly active users. For your small business website to succeed in 2018 it must be optimized to get in front of these 2 billion potential customers.

Professional Website Designer

While the build a website in 3 “easy” steps seems cheap and attractive, it usually isn’t a good choice. Simply put, these schemes are usually designed to attract thousands of customers that create websites that have little to no value. Even with a website online customers won’t be able to find your business if it isn’t search engine optimized. A professional website designer will design a website that is optimized and coded to the latest security standards.   Joker Web Hosting has been providing website solutions to businesses since 2006.
