Your business could be making more money!

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a means of getting more clients without constantly having to pound the pavement to create awareness about your business? Or, wouldn’t it be nice to have the clientele you need to live a life of financial stability and freedom? What about having your business make money while you sleep?


 Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? It’s really not!

A huge majority of small businesses out there (an astounding 46% ) don’t actually have a website that promotes their business in the ever-growing online world.

Let’s run some numbers taken from HubSpot’s 2017 List of Marketing Statistics.

– 81% of shoppers conduct online research before making big purchases. (Retailing Today, 2014) (Source:

– 72% of consumers who did a local search visited a store within five miles. (WordStream, 2016) (Source:

– Local searches lead 50% of mobile visitors to visit stores within one day. (Google, 2014) (Source:

Are you still with me? What do these numbers mean?

It’s pretty simple really. If your business is not online – YOU ARE LOSING MONEY!

But getting an amazing website can also cost a pretty penny. How can a small business afford the $5,000 price tag for a website? They generally can’t. And you don’t want to spend $100 on a site either because well, you get what you pay for right?

So who do you trust to create your website and turn it into a money making machine for you? Truth is, you need to do your research. You need someone has vision, creativity and a sheer passion for web design. Someone who has the experience (and the portfolio) to give you exactly what your business needs. Someone who will take their time with you so you can both openly communicate the expectations for the project.


It’s hard, but not impossible. There are people out there who genuinely want to help you and your business be the best it can be without costing you an arm and a leg. The trouble is finding them. They are far and few between, but they are out there.

So, what are you waiting for? If you don’t have a site (or if you do have one but it’s really outdated) — Get on out there and find that special, rare unicorn of a designer that will help you get your site up and running without breaking the bank!
