Increase Your Conversions

Increase your conversions!When a visitor arrives at your home page, what does he do? If you don't know the answer, chances are you have a very low conversion rate. Did you know that Internet usability studies indicate a single visitor clicks an average of 2 times on a website and spends less than one minute? This means you don't have much time.Ask yourself ... what do you REALLY want someone to do when they get to your website? Do you want them to look at a portfolio? Fill out a request form? Go to your FAQs? Buy something? Request a quote?Right up front, plain and simple, guide your site visitor to that objective. One way to accomplish this is simply to ask them to do it. Amazingly, most websites never even ask - they just leave it to chance. Increasing your conversation rate can be as simple as that. Make it clear what your visitor should do next and they are far more likely to do it.Tip by: Sandy WaggettMSW Interactive Designs LLCWe put the web to work for you!http://www.…

Knoxville Custom Window Treatments

We just launched a great new micro-site for a Knoxville custom window treatment company called Fabric Decor. Fabric Décor is a custom window treatment business that has been prospering in Knoxville for about 10 years. They have an onsite drapery workroom, and an large fabric library. Fabric Decor strives to be a resource for window treatments and custom bedding for homeowners and the design trade alike.
They started with a simple one page website and plan to grow their new site over time to feature galleries of their work, samples from their suppliers, and information about their custom fabric decor and design services.
It just goes to show that you don't have to start with huge budget to get a professional and custom design for your small business website. If would like to get your small business started on the web, contact me today! We can get you up and running for less than $250!

Blogs versus Websites

I recently had a client ask me if they should have a blog instead of a website. In formulating my answer to that question, it occurred to me that other clients may be interested in the answer, as well ... hence my decision to add it to my blog.

Every small business should have a website. It's simply expected by your existing customers and potential customers. Every business should have a blog, as well ... perhaps there are a few exceptions. The blog and the website complement each other.

The anwer is ... BOTH!

Your website is your rock - it's the foundation of your presence online. It can be as simple as an online sales brochure or as complex as a full eCommerce storefront. Your customers will ask you for your website address, not your blog address. Your business should definitely have a website.

Your blog enhances your website. It is a tool (like a journal) that you contribute to on a regular basis - daily, weekly, whatever works best for you. When you contribute to your blog wit…
