Website Designer: More than just good looks

First: a WARNING: There’s a danger in choosing a website designer, which is looking for the cheapest one you can find.

You want a site that makes you money, i.e. brings you leads, deals to close.

A good website designer combined with marketing (compelling message, delivered to the right people at the right time) will make you far more than they cost.

A bad one will simply be a money-pit.

I know you want a good price. Hear me out – here’s the trap:

  1. You search for the cheapest one, since you don’t know what really matters (hint: it’s profitability, not price)
  2. You then find someone who doesn’t know how to make a website that _creates_ money. Would you rather have a website that produces $$$ per month, but cost $$ one time? Or a $ website that does nothing for you, and “leaks” profit, causes people to “keep searching” instead of booking and buying?
  3. You find what you want: a cheap designer, often overseas, that will give you a slapped-together template, with no attention to SEO, conversion, the customer journey. It might even look pretty, but does nothing for you.
  4. Repeat: Then next time you want a website, you also want to go as cheap as possible, because “websites don’t make money”. You’re in the trap. You might be there now.

There’s a different path:

A website that’s a storefront, and causes people to book and buy.

Google.com is “just a website”. It mints billions per year in profit.

The #1 Criteria for choosing a Website Designer: Profitability

What matters most: Your cost-per-client.

Personally I’d much prefer to have a $3k website that creates over $1k/mo in sales lead value, vs a $300 website that creates $0/mo in sales-leads.

Our top project was creating 61 leads per DAY. Average, for the month.
Note: they spend a lot on marketing, but were profiting $$$.

Your cost-per-closed-deal is the #1 metric you need to be focused on, and a website is a core part of this.

In marketing terms, this is called “CAC” – Cost to Acquire a Customer.

Trade shows average CAC is $805. Email CAC average is about $180. PPC CAC cross-industry average right now is probably $285.

Various channels and various industries have benchmarks for what a cost-per-lead should cost.

Next, you then have another key metric: CLTV – Customer Life Time Value.

For HVAC, average is $15,340, but that’s average. Are you average? (tip: Use SwiftCloud and we’ll help you tune upsells, cross-sells, referrals, etc. so each customer is worth more $ – and gets more value for their $).

Ok – let’s get into it:

There’s a hierarchy for website design – base camp is just trust – “Brochure Mode”.

the TL;DR: Order your “Base Camp” package bel0w – you’ll get a ton of stuff, including things you don’t even know you need (example: hacking security, load speed optimization) and more.

Our Base Camp Package includes:

  • A WordPress-based Website with semi-custom Theme, so you have a control panel for blog, homepage etc – note we’ve done over 200 WordPress websites, have multiple custom plugins, advanced theme design. This also means there’s no “lock-in”, we have to stay good, and it’s easy to replace us, since there’s a ton of wordpress talent out there (though 98% are frankly not as good as us – yes, I’m bragging, but we’re good. We can build just about anything in WordPress.)
  • A Web-Based CRM (Client Relationship Manager) – Sales Leads feed into SwiftCRM – part of SwiftCloud – so you can automate your sales foll0w-up, quote generation, etc. – SwiftCRM essentials with Web Forms is included. This also includes a client portal if you need it, scheduling, e-payments, and more.
  • Swift Email essentials package – Email newsletter tools, but also cold email
  • Optional: Swift Phone – press 1 for sales, voicemail, etc
  • Essential training on how to get your website making you money. You need a compelling message, deliver to the right people – i.e. advertising, usually, but we can help with SEO (Search Engine Optimization), PPC (Pay-Per-Click – aka SEM Search Engine Marketing), Social Media, Cold Email and more.
