Some Great Reasons Why You Need a Website

Some Great Reasons Why You Need a Website

Before you shove the idea from your head of why you don’t need a web site, there are many reason why you DO need one. Over the yeas we have had clients who do not even have an email address. They still do business with having a web site.

Have you noticed over the years, our old way of using the yellow pages coming by way of postal service, has dwindled down to almost nothing? Why is this? If you use the internet or not, most of the population today does! Smart phones, tablets, computers, and yes even their head gear and watches connect on the go! Society is always on the go…globally now. How do you stay caught up with the demands of hobbies, businesses, information or sales? A great, smooth running designed web site!

Here are some good reasons why you should consider having a web site:

  • Web Sites Never Sleep
  • Your Top Competitor Has A Website
  • Websites Improve Customer Confidence & Corporate Image
  • Small Businesses Have Higher Revenue
  • Websites Help Establish More Customers
  • Websites Are Not Just Local, They Are Global
  • It is always accessible
  • A website save your time & money

 

 

Web sites just aren’t for business. A great eye pleasing personal one is great too! If you are thinking about a web site, just contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss your ideas and use our canvas to create one for you!

Why we use Divi by Elegant Themes

Why we use Divi by Elegant Themes

Thats right…we went all Divi! Some of us at Coffee web design have been in the web business for 15 years or more, doing web design. Our favorite theme to use and convert sites to is the Divi theme by Elegant Themes and we will get to why in a minute.

Our designer was ranging from design in Frontpage (oh this is ancient) to other page builders software over the years. While WordPress was making it own in the world of web sites, it had come a long way in development that we had to give it a try about 8 years ago. So our designer started out on a mission to learn what WordPress was all about. Excited in learning a new program to help more small business owners, she could see the possibilities could be almost endless when it came to WordPress sites and keeping the cost low for clients. Also her background in years of web development as a project manager, she could see the lower cost instead of building sites from scratch which were usually out of price range for start up businesses, personal or small businesses.

When it came to design though, she loved doing her own custom design for clients. She liked giving them their own identity, just as a brand, in web design. WordPress has many many contributers that make out of the box designs. Your site though may look like Mo’s down the road though. She st out doing custom design themes for WordPress clients.

Then came mobile!!

Once the android and iphone came out and things started going mobile, our designer then had to go back and revamp themes for WordPress to also have mobile versions. What does that mean? This means that every site had to adjust to whatever mobile version you had and the position you were carrying your device to look at the site. This means a desktop version, tablet vertical, tablet horizontal, phone veritcal and horizontal. This now because of all of the revamps and versions that had to be “responsive” for devices, this started to drive up the cost again for clients.

Then we found Divi!

Divi is out of the box shell for designers and meets all of the requirements for responsive themes. Now we can lower the cost for our clients again and still give them a knock out design using Divi! We couldn’t be happier with the results and have gotten rave reviews for the designs we create for our Coffee Web Design clients. We have been even collaborated with other web companies and work with them on design using Divi while they manage their content.

Ease of use for clients!

As most WordPress clients, most people want to save costs and manage their WordPress site themselves. Not a problem and using Divi with a unique drag n drop system with built in modules, has even been fun forsome of our clients who add new content, update galleries and create new content all the time. Divi has many built in features that eliminate need for extra plugins (which we lways say, less is more when it comes to plugins). Support is great with Elegant Themes and they are fantastic about keeping Divi up to date and in compliance with what is required with search engines. Updates? they are always keeping us sitting at the edge of our seat, awaiting the next version of surprises available in Divi.

Most of our client now are converted to using the Divi theme and we will continue to build, design, and train people how to use Divi.

If you are using Woocommerce…great!! Divi is user friendly and options available for those who use Woocommerce for their online shop.

Small Businesses gets a kickstart on the web!

Small Businesses gets a kickstart on the web!

Coffee Web Design reaches out to small businesses to get their kick start on the web!

We know small businesses on the web and you having your own, can seem like and endless amount of work. Yet you have accomplished this now by starting your own small business and you want to take it to the next level. You need to have a web presence ….its a must and let us tell you why.

An astonished amount of readers of the web are growing on a daily basis. we aren’t talking about one shared computer in their house anymore. We are talking about multiple computers surfing the web, mobile, tablets, phones and who knows what tomorrow brings! Bill Gates said it YEARS ago….the future of successful businesses. It will be those on the web and those who no longer have a business.

You have a web site and your good to go?

Not necessarily.

More and more people are now using mobile devices than computers.  We are talking tablets…flip them vertically and horizontally…and your phones…the same. Is your web site responsive to these mobile devices? Will it adjust to how your viewers are viewing your web site and what their device is capable of seeing? If not, then you really aren’t “good to go”…your web site needs to be “on the go” as well!

You don’t sell products so you don’t need a web site?

Not true. 

Ever get your local Yellow Pages® in the mail…doesn’t it seem to dwindle little by little each year? there is a reason for this. More and more people are searching for local businesses and services online. True the Yellow Pages® has its own online presence now, and you can be listed in that…however customers want to see more…and your web site is where they want to see it!

They want to see what your business is all about, the people who run it or even just a gallery of what you sell. It doesn’t have to be an online store for you to have a web site…you just need to be there!

If you need a consultation about a web site for your small business, lets Get Started and get you a quote and get you where you need to be today and in the future with where the web is going.
