Things in this little Windsor Web Design company are shaping up really nicely I have to say!
I have been working hard on some of the technical behind the scenes areas and ironing out the glitches that have to be sorted out and put things in place so we are best able to serve our community of small businesses in the Windsor area who are looking for great websites to get them online and increasing their sales and revenue.
You know, I was driving between Windsor and Amherstburg yesterday paying particular attention to vans and trucks being used by small businesses out on the road. These people are my potential clients and I'm interested in how they do business.
Many were really quite nicely marked up with business names and phone numbers, some even had an email address. Usually a Gmail or yahoo one, lol!
However what still surprises me is the sheer number of small business owners who don't have a website for their business. I really wish I could just speak to some of those business owners and tell them how many potential clients that they are missing out on. Many appear to have spent quite a decent amount of money on getting some nice decals for their vans and trucks. I'm sure that really isn't cheap! But the only people seeing them are the people who happen to be sitting near them in traffic, and how many of them will happen to need a plumber or carpenter right then, that day. It's a shame that the customer needing a plumber or carpenter searching on google will never find them! That's a clear case of a missed opportunity if I ever saw one. What a shame!
Losing Clients = Losing money. It's really simple and very true that if people cant find you they cant give you their money! The brutal fact is that business exists to make money and bring in an income for the business owner and it's employees, put food on the table, a roof over our heads and pay the bills. Think about how much easier that might be if customers were coming to find you rather than you chasing for them spending money on advertising.
It's understandable though, I do get it that many Windsor Web Design companies sometimes are not cheap. Most provide a really great quality product, but the fact is that most Windsor Web Design companies tend to target and cater for larger business with bigger marketing budgets.
That is exactly why I started Best Choice Web Design, so that we finally have a Windsor Web Design Company that really looks after the interests of the smaller trader, the small independent stores, the tradesperson, the restaurant or coffee shop who just simply cannot afford the rates that some Windsor Web Design companies charge.
We at Best Choice Web Design promise you an affordable package that'll offer you a great looking website, with all of the features that you need such as contact info, photos, testimonials, opening hours even video if you want it. We can do what you want and we promise to keep your costs down. That's exactly why I started the business. Tell me what you want and I promise I'll do my best for you.
I'm even offering 50 bucks off of our web design and hosting package as an incentive to kick you off in the right direction right now. I'm doing everything I can to keep my costs low so that I can pass on some savings to the local small business community.
In my very humble opinion, it's very important that we all succeed. If businesses in the area do well that really has a knock on effect amongst other small businesses. There will be more local trade done and I'm a big believer in spending your money locally. In fact, I plan to do another blog post on the positive effects that buying from local independent companies can have to the community. If we start to fail as a community, then sadly many more will fail. I really want us to do well.
I'd love to build great relationships with other small businesses in Windsor Essex County, I'd love even to facilitate some partnerships between local businesses through my website once I build up a decent sized portfolio I'll be sharing the websites of the companies I've helped get online giving them just a little bit more exposure through this website and through social media also. After all, every little bit of advertising and marketing can help a business get additional customers and that's what it's all about!
So, as I continue to drive around Windsor Esses County doing my chores I'll be continuing to look at the trucks and vans local business owners are driving and I'll continue to spare a moment thought to missed opportunities.
