Do you own or operate your own business? And, if you do are you techno-savvy enough to create your own website? Chances are, like most people you can put together a decent website.
But will it sell?
It’s no longer a 9 to 5 work world. The internet and mobile technology has moved the work force from their Dilbert-like cubicles and released stay-at-home moms and dads from being tied to the house phone. Grocery stores and fitness club now operate around the clock.
So, if you’re going to be successful, your business door needs to be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This gives customers the opportunity to learn more about your products and services. You’ll get business from folks in their pajamas who would never be motivated to get dressed and drive to your location.
That’s why you not only need a website. You need a professional designed website. Sure, free services are out there and some hosting companies provide do it yourself templates. But that’s exactly what they look like. Do it yourself.
A custom website can be uniquely designed to fit your company and your company alone.
That’s why companies like Richmond-based 8 Leg Studio are making an impact in the business world. 8 Leg Studio is located in Richmond’s Fan District and provides professional website design.
