Website Design

We live in a society where communication and knowledge is at our fingertips, where users surf the web across multiple devices. LWH Design always makes sure that your website is optimized to ensure that you’re reaching the right people, whether they’re using a mobile phone or a desk top PC, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn etc.

Graphic Design

Graphic design can be expensive-- however, it doesn't HAVE to be. At LWH Design, we believe the materials you use to develop business have to look great, but frankly, it's about developing new customers with them, much more so than how many advertising industry awards they could win. (Those cost more to make.) Whether you need a logo, brochures or sales presentations, whatever it is-- we'll provide some options, draft out costs for those various designs, and do our best to make it easy and cost-effective.

Why not Squarespace or Wix?

If website builders like Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly are so affordable, why shouldn’t everyone use them? If a professionally designed website could cost over $10,000 and a website builder costs $50/month, aren’t you saving over $9,000 by choosing the website builder?

Not really. The reason is that it’s not how much a professionally designed website costs.

It’s how much it will cost you and your business if you don’t have a professionally designed website. We can work within your budget and bill in monthly installments to develop the web strategy your business needs. When you pay monthly to Wix or Squarespace, you don’t own anything. With LWH Design, we will give you a project quote for design and hosting that can be paid in low monthly installments. Once your design is paid off, you own your site. We will host it for $19.99/year or you can take it to another host.

Warren Buffett, recognized as the world’s greatest investor, says that the most important consideration when it comes to investing is:

Opportunity Cost

Opportunity cost is when you not only consider your return on investment for a particular transaction. But when you also compare all options available, to determine what the best overall course of action is.

So let’s say you own a construction company, and your average transaction runs in the millions of dollars. In scenario A, you use a ‘free’ website builder and pay nothing for your site. In scenario B you pay a design firm $10,000 for a professionally designed site. Which one is the better value?

In scenario A, you have the hidden cost of your employee’s time which was used to make the site. If it took a paid employee 100 hours of time put the site together and that employee gets paid $50/hr, then their time needs to be factored into the cost.

In scenario B if the business lost even one million dollar contract it might otherwise have won with a more professional looking site, that cost needs to be factored in as well.

10 Reasons Not to Use a “free” Website Builder

No Analytics

Knowing what’s happening on your site is really important for testing and evolving your website. You need a good way to track visitors, leads, and what people are doing on your website. With website builders, you simply can’t do this.

SEO - Search Engine Optimization

One of the worst parts about using a website builder to create a business website is that the builder spits out a jumble of code that is not structured well. It doesn’t contain the necessary elements to help websites rank better in Google.  SEO Stands for search engine optimization and its the methodology of making your website show up higher in Google and other search engines. There are many pieces to SEO but one of the most important parts is on-page SEO. This is the code and structure of the site and they have a large impact on the SEO-friendliness of the website. When you build your site with these website builders you do not have control of the code…just the design. You can’t use structured data to increase your local SEO or even add content. Growing your online presence is a huge part of getting more online visitors and customers. These website builders don’t allow you to create new content so you will rarely rank in Google.

Only Single Page

Most website builders only offer a single page to be created which is bad for SEO and terrible for creating an online presence. Websites should be mulitple pages and constantly growing in pages. That is the only way to keep Google bots coming back and keeping your website relevant. It should not be possible to showcase your business in just one page. No one wants to scroll down a extremely long page that goes on forever. Websites should be sectioned off into different pages and levels to explain the business, who are you, what you do, where you are located and how to contact you.

No Support

In order for a website to grow, you have to water it. When you create a website with Weebly, Wix or Sqaurespace you don’t get the support you need or deserve. It should not be your job to keep your website running and up-to-date! What if your website goes down or something stops working on it? Do you have the skills it takes to fix it before your customers notice? A lot of the time, certain pieces of a website can stop working and you may not even know it. Customers may be trying to contact you, but you’re not a webmaster, how would you know? Having a dedicated support team is essential and necessary to having an online website. They can make sure your website is up, running and functional so that your customers can find you 24/7, 365.

Responsive Site for mobile friendliness

Having a mobile-friendly website is probably the most important thing on this list. This should be obvious since pretty much everyone has a cell phone with access to the internet.62% of companies that designed a website specifically for mobile had increased sales. (Source: Econsultancy) When you use a website builder you aren’t going to get a responsive website design. Sure, it may look decent on a desktop computer, but did you happen to check it out on a mobile device? or a tablet?

Not Stunning

Many website builder companies like to say that you can create a stunning website with their software. The problem is that ‘stunning’ has a context. If the last time your website was redesigned was 10 years ago, then a 1 page Wix website may seem stunning to you. But technology is growing very fast and the web design market has grown with it. Stunning websites these days are much more than just a single page that a lawyer, doctor or chiropractor throws together in 30 minutes. When we build a website we create a experience for the user that engages them and builds trust. A stunning website is a website that brings in traffic and converts that traffic to paying customers and most website builder sites don’t do that.

They Own Your Content

Migration is not possible when you use a website builder. That means that if you wanted to move your website somewhere else, you wouldn’t be able to. Having your website run on a CMS system allows you to migrate from host to host easily without website interruption.

They're flash based

Another reason websites builders are bad for SEO is that they are flash based. Google and other search engines can’t read flash so they have no idea what the website is about. Not to mentioned that flash is very slow and kind of old school. Flash is also very insecure, can’t be searched, doesn’t have text content and is a nightmare for search bots. LWH Design uses CMS based systems to craft your perfect site.

Value Your Brand

Let’s do some math… Wix.com currently has over 90 million users. On their website, they mention that they have about 500 customizable templates. If we do some simple math… 90,000,000 users / 500 templates = 180,000. That means that if you use Wix, you are probably using the same template as 180,000 other people. This really diminishes your brand in so many ways. Not only do 180,000 other peoples website resemble yours, customers know you are using a cheap website builder to create a website and brand. 48% of people cited a website’s design as the number one factor in deciding the credibility of a business (source: IronPaper) Customers want to know you are a legitimate business that spends more than $30 on their online brand. This builds trust and brand awareness. When you go the cheap route with your business website, you are going to get cheap results. LWH Design will build the site you want.

Not CMS Based

CMS systems are a powerful tool to help manage websites and their content. Content management systems like WordPress facilitate writing, editing, organizing and publishing content online. You can have full control over files, design, documents and how you display your content. When you use a website builder you are creating static HTML web pages that are no match for content management systems. In contrast, when you use a web designer you own your website. When you stop paying Squarespace or Wix, you lose your website. They Own Your Content. LWH Design will design a website that you own.
