In a brick and mortar store, unless you already have a good reputation, it’s your shop window which first attracts people to come inside and take a look around.
Online, your website is your shop window.
And to make matters more complicated, visitors won’t necessarily come to your homepage first. Thanks to search engines, they could land on any page of your website. Whichever page they land on, they have one question: “Can you offer what I’m looking for?”
I work with the owners of small businesses who want to make sure that their website is holding the attention of their ideal customers. My approach involves learning about your products, services, processes and customers, partnering with you to develop a website which will give the right information to the right people.
That’s right – you should think of me as a partner. I’ll do more than just take your brief and produce a website which fits it; I’ll apply my technical knowledge and experience to your situation, challenge your ideas if needed and offer suggestions you might not have thought of.
Since 2011, I’ve been building Clearly Developed websites. This name was born out of my frustration of seeing too many outdated, unclear and inconsistent websites – and knowing that I could do a better job.
I’ve worked with financial advisors, plumbers, business advisors, print consultants, audio producers, photographers, dressmakers, gardeners, landlords and more! What this wide range of small business owners had in common wasn’t just the need for a great website, but also the need for someone to help guide and advise them throughout the process to make sure that their website works hard for their business.
